"Seemann" as written by Richard Z. Kruspe, Paul Landers, Till Lindemann, Doktor Christian Lorenz, Oliver Riedel and Christoph Doom Schneider....
Komm in mein Boot
Ein Sturm kommt auf und es wird Nacht
Wo willst du hin
So ganz allein treibst du davon
Wer hält deine Hand
Wenn es dich nach unten zieht

Wo willst du hin
So uferlos die kalte See
Komm in mein Boot
Der Herbstwind hält die Segel straff

Jetzt stehst du da an der Laterne
Mit Tränen im Gesicht
Das Tageslicht fällt auf die Seite
Der Herbstwind fegt die Straße leer

Jetzt stehst du da an der Laterne
Hast Tränen im Gesicht
Das Abendlicht verjagt die Schatten
Die Zeit steht still und es wird Herbst

Komm in mein Boot
Die Sehnsucht wird der Steuermann
Komm in mein Boot
Der beste Seemann war doch ich

Jetzt stehst du da an der Laterne
Hast Tränen im Gesicht
Das Feuer nimmst du von der Kerze
Die Zeit steht still und es wird Herbst

Sie sprachen nur von deiner Mutter
So gnadenlos ist nur die Nacht
Am Ende bleib ich doch alleine
Die Zeit steht still
Und mir ist kalt, kalt, kalt, kalt

    General CommentPersonally I prefer the Rammstein version rather that Apocalyptica's mainly because its Rammstein and the vocals on the other dont suit it... it was designed for Till's voice, and he's a brilliant singer

    General CommentI think to grasp the multiple meanings of the song, it helps to watch the music video. I've heard Apocalyptica's version, and the vocals are best done by Till, but the use of the Cello is really cool

    General CommentIt sounds like Till is saying "Cum in my butt"

    General CommentSounds more like

    "Cum in my boot
    The best semen for the fish"

    ...I think the Apocalyptica cover of this song was better...just my opinion though. Wonderful lyrics!

    General CommentYeah, I agree with Dressed2Depress. The bassline is sooo pretty. Some guy was playing it on my bass at school today and I just HAD to hear the song. It's a really great song too.

    General Commentwhen he sings 'wer hält deine Hand, wenn es dich nach unten zieht' it really gets to me, ha. And as a bassist, yes the bassline is incredible.
