Rammstein Wollt ihr das Bett in Flammen sehen lyric with English translation

Wollt ihr das Bett in Flammen sehen
wollt ihr in Haut und Haaren untergehen
ihr wollt doch auch den Dolch ins Laken stecken
ihr wollt doch auch das Blut vom Degen lecken

Rammstein

Ihr seht die Kreuze auf dem Kissen
Ihr meint euch darf die Unschuld küssen
Ihr glaubt zu töten wäre schwer
Doch wo kommen all die Toten her

Rammstein

Sex ist eine Schlacht
Liebe ist Krieg

Wollt ihr das Bett in Flammen sehen
wollt ihr in Haut und Haaren untergehen
ihr wollt doch auch den Dolch ins Laken stecken
ihr wollt doch auch das Blut vom Degen lecken

Rammstein
Do you want to see the bed in flames
do you want to perish* in skin and hair
you want to stick the dagger in the sheet as well**
you want to lick the blood from the sword too**

Ram-stone

You see the crosses on the pillow
You think the innocence may kiss you
You believe it would be hard to kill
But where are all the dead coming from

Ram-stone

Sex is a battle
Love is war

Do you want to see the bed in flames
do you want to perish in skin and hair
you want to stick the dagger in the sheet as well
you want to lick the blood from the sword too

Ram-stone

Translation notes:

*untergehen does not only mean perish, it can also mean drown and get lost

** The doch brings a provocative undertone, like I bet you want to do this too.

During a live concert (example: Live aus Berlin) Till Lindemann would often have flamethrowers attached to his fingers, and would stand in an upright position with his hands behind his back to hide them. When they started singing Sex ist eine Schlacht, Liebe ist Krieg (Sex is a battle, Love is war) the flamethrowers would be activated, and he would swing his hands in a circular motion, spraying flames and sparks all around him.

The song was used as the theme music for the nearly identical Space Ghost Coast to Coast episodes Brilliant Number One and Brilliant Number Two.

This song also features samples used on the Doom PC game, the marine death scream after each verse and the shotgun cocking during the Sex ist eine Schlacht, Liebe ist Krieg chorus.

    Heard somewhere that one translation of ‘rammstein’ is ‘battering ram’. It would certainly be the applicable translation for this song.
