Warmer Körper heißes Kreuz falsches Urteil kaltes Grab Auf dem Kreuze lieg ich jetzt sie schlagen mir die Nägel ein das Feuer wäscht die Seele rein und übrig bleibt ein Mundvoll Asche Ich komm wieder in zehn Tagen als dein Schatten und werd dich jagen Heimlich werd ich auferstehen und du wirst um Gnade flehen dann knie ich mich in dein Gesicht und steck den Finger in die Asche Asche zu Asche und Staub zu Staub
Warm body hot cross wrong judgment cold grave I now lie on the cross they hammer nails into me the fire purifies the soul and remaining is a mouthful of ashes I will return in ten days as your shadow and I will hunt you down Secretly I will rise from the dead and you will plead for mercy then I will kneel in your face and stick my finger in the ashes Ashes to ashes and dust to dust
“Asche zu Asche” is usually interpreted as the crucifixion of Jesus Christ, despite the lines “Ich komm wieder/in zehn Tagen”, which means “˜I will return/in ten days.’ During live performances, the microphones would catch fire when they began to sing the chorus, just as the cover of the single depicts.
Idk if this is official but this has an uncanny resemblance to the first doom after level screen music. I mean it wouldn’t be out of the ordinary for them to take inspiration from doom considering the doom death sound is in “Wollt ihr das bett in flammen sehen
Christoff used to play doom a lot in Herzeleid days
Uh, no. WOLFENSTEIN 3D. Not fuckin’ DOOM.
Revenge simple and plain.
Jesus christ bla bla bla bla bla… get outta here !
you maid breh?
this song has NOTHING to do with jesus christ or his death on the cross! Because jesus died for our sin and won’ t hunt people to get them return to god. And got isn’t only a shadow, he’s real! And jesus get up to leave the grave at the third day! This is what the bibel says. Listen to their music and you’ll know, what they are living for!!
You know nothing about Rammstein lmao.
The title of this song is Asche Zu Asche, but when I’m on this page, the name of my tab is “Weisses Fleisch”… would be nice if some admin would fix that.. Awesome song btw, one of my favs.
The Crucifaction of Jesus Christ was not a singular event.
It had been used in plenty of instances before Jesus Christ, and several after.
Jesus was crucified WITH two others. They were either murderers or thieves. I can’t remember.
Either way. Crucification of an individual was an extremely popular means of torture for enemies of the state. It was later removed from use for it was deamed inhumane.
I love this song!
One person (A) is wrongly judged, misunderstood and “crucified” by another person or group (B). Later on, the conscience/memory of this cruel behaviour comes back to haunt B. – “Ich komm wieder
in zehn Tagen
als dein Schatten
und werd dich jagen”
Some metaphors in this song are taken from the crucifiction of jesus story, but I have read that Till is an atheist, as I am too, of course.
Till is a Luciferian actually, though not sure if Atheistic or Theistic like my self.
Till is a Luciferian? What!? Where did you hear that?
way i see the song (which is awesome), it’s just a general metaphor for venegance. nothing to do with christ or resurrection or the like, the first part is just the guy being falsely accused and ‘nailed to the cross and burned’, meaning he’s just being accused and convicted. all that remains is a mouthful of ashes. the bitter taste of injustice and the desire for revenge
from there on, the second part is pretty self-explanatory, no actual resurrection but just coming back and serving the cold dish of revenge
