Rammstein Ich Tu Dir Weh lyric with English translation

Nur für mich bist du am Leben
Ich steck dir Orden ins Gesicht
Du bist mir ganz und gar ergeben
Du liebst mich denn ich lieb' dich nicht

Du blutest für mein Seelenheil
Ein kleiner Schnitt und du wirst geil
Der Körper - schon total entstellt
Egal, erlaubt ist, was gefällt

Ich tu' dir weh.
Tut mir nicht Leid!
Das tut dir gut.
Hör wie es schreit!

Bei dir habe ich die Wahl der Qual
Stacheldraht im Harnkanal
Leg dein Fleisch in Salz und Eiter
Erst stirbst du doch dann lebst du weiter

Bisse, Tritte, harte Schläge
Nadel, Zangen, stumpfe Säge
Wünsch' dir was, ich sag nicht nein
Und führ' dir Nagetiere ein

Ich tu' dir weh.
Tut mir nicht Leid!
Das tut dir gut.
Hör wie es schreit!

Ich tu' dir weh.
Tut mir nicht Leid!
Es tut dir gut.
Hör wie es schreit!

Du bist das Schiff, ich der Kapitän
Wohin soll denn die Reise geh'n?
Ich seh' im Spiegel dein Gesicht
Du liebst mich denn ich lieb' dich nicht

Ich tu' dir weh.
Tut mir nicht Leid!
Das tut dir gut.
Hört wie es schreit!

Ich tu' dir weh.
Tut mir nicht Leid!
Das tut dir gut.
Hör wie es schreit!

Ich tu' dir weh.
Tut mir nicht Leid!
Das tut dir gut.
Hör wie's schreit! 

Lyric © Rammstein
You’re only alive for me
I put medals into your face
You are entirely devoted to me
You love me because I don’t love you

You bleed for my salvation
A small cut and you’re horny
The body – already totally distorted
It doesn’t matter, whatever pleases is allowed

I hurt you
I’m not sorry
It does you good
Hear how it screams!

With you I have the choice of torment*
Barbed wire in the urethral tract
Put your flesh in salt and pus
First you die but then you live on

Bites, kicks, hard blows
Needle, pliers, blunt saw
What you wish, I don’t say no
And insert rodents into you

I hurt you
I’m not sorry
It does you good
Hear how it screams

I hurt you
I’m not sorry
It does you good
Hear how it screams

You are the ship, I’m the captain
Where should this journey go
I see your face in the mirror
You love me because I don’t love you

I hurt you
I’m not sorry
It does you good
Hear how it screams

I hurt you
I’m not sorry
It does you good
Hear how it screams

I hurt you
I’m not sorry
It does you good
Hear how it screams

* Inversion of the German collocation “die Qual der Wahl haben” (the torment of choice, means to be spoilt for choice)

  1. I think it could be about loving self harm for the pleasure of pain, this can be assumed from several of the lyrics of this song but the one that points this out the most is the part where till says “ich seh’ im spiegel dein Gesicht ( I see your face in the mirror)”.

  2. I can’t help but wonder if it’s about our love for life, when all that a long life brings us is suffering. In our culture, the only good life is one that lasts until we’re wearing wrinkles in our faces, our body’s contorted, and it hurts to even pee. And yet, that’s a successful life.

  3. This song is about a relationship in which one is the tormentor and the other enjoys being tormented. Look around you-the life is full of examples of tormented women or men that play martyr and think that “bleed for the salvation of the other” With this behavior they actually infuriate even more the other person and at the end they win an upper hand in this twisted relationship. That is why Flake goes out at the end like a victor.
    Rammstein songs do not stop to amaze me with their wisdom.

  4. I think it’s also about rebirth or reinventing yourself, if you watch the show. Flakke is punished, and comes out reborn.

  5. I find it strange that this song has little to zero comments about it. This song fully fills my carnal and sick mind. Given half the chance I would love to physically abuse someone this way.

  6. For me, a song by a typical Borderline patient
    He cuts himself and injuredall
    always look immediately : to the symbolic Pain describe lines :
    barbed wire in the urethral tract and introduce Rodents keyphrases
    but the true and most important line are :

    You are the ship, I’m the captain
    Where should this journey go
    I see your face in the mirror
    You love me because I don’t love you
