Rammstein Führe mich lyrics with English translation

Buy Rammstein song “Führe mich” on Amazon

Du bist mir ans Herz gewachsen You have grown in my heart
Wenn ich blute hast du Schmerzen When I bleed you have pains
Wir müssen uns kennen We must know ourselves
Ein Körper, zwei Namen One body, two names
Nichts kann uns trennen Nothing can disunite us
Ein Zweilaib im Samen A twinbody in semen
Wenn du weinst, geht es mir gut If you cry, it’s okay with me
Die Hand deiner Angst, füttert mein Blut The hand of your fear, feeds my blood
Führe mich, halte mich Lead me, hold me
Ich fühle dich, ich verlass Dich nicht I feel you, I won’t abandon you
Du bist mir ans Herz gebaut You are constructed at my heart
Zwei Seelen spannen eine Haut Two souls span one skin
Und wenn ich rede bist du still And when I speak you are silent
Du stirbst wenn ich es will You die when I want
Wenn du weinst schenke ich dir When you cry, I give to you
Kinder der Angst, Tränen von mir Children of fear, tears from me
Führe mich, halte mich Lead me, hold me
Ich fühle dich, ich verlass Dich nicht I feel you, I won’t abandon you
Zwei Bilder nur ein Rahmen Two pictures, only one frame
Ein Körper doch zwei Namen One body, yet two names
Zwei Dochte eine Kerze Two wicks, one candle
Zwei Seelen in einem Herzen Two souls in one heart
Führe mich, halte mich Lead me, hold me
Ich führe dich, ich verlass Dich nicht I lead you, I won’t abandon you

  1. I’m not sure I understand the symbolism (which of course they would say is not there…) a split personality maybe?

  2. I’m listening to the cd while I’m reading the words. Do you know that in a few places Till is not saying the same thing as the background words. In two places Till says “Verlass mich nicht” “Don’t Leave Me” before the background singer(s) say “Ich verlass dich nicht” “I won’t leave you.”

  3. I just happened to finish reading the book Steppenwolf by Hermann Hesse. I recommend this excellent novel on its own account, but it also happens to explain this song perfectly. In the mean time one can search the title on the net and get a good synopsis of it. It’s not about ‘split personality’ but rather just an aspect, a strong and possibly dangerous one, of this everyday man that he feared because he wasn’t sure what it was about. He referred to it as der Steppenwolf (‘steppes wolf’ or lone wolf). At various times he would gather strength to let the wolf lead him (Führe mich- lead me)and even argue with it.

  4. I think the song is about siamese twins that can’t be separatet.

    “Two pictures, only one frame
    One body, yet two names”

  5. This song makes me think of Edward Mordrake. Don’t really think that’s what the song’s about, but the sinister lyrics and sonic atmosphere bring him to mind.

    I figure Edward Mordrake’s story could have been the inspiration for this, though. It explains the physical nature of the song’s conflicted persona.
