Rammstein Mann gegen Mann lyric with English translation

Das Schicksal hat mich angelacht
und mir ein Geschenk gemacht
Warf mich auf einen warmen Stern
Der Haut so nah dem Auge fern
Ich nehm mein Schicksal in die Hand
Mein Verlangen ist bemannt

Wo das süße Wasser stirbt
weil es sich im Salz verdirbt
trag ich den kleinen Prinz im Sinn
Ein König ohne Königin
Wenn sich an mir ein Weib verirrt
dann ist die helle Welt verwirrt

Mann gegen Mann
Meine Haut gehört den Herren
Mann gegen Mann
Gleich und Gleich gesellt sich gern
Mann gegen Mann
Ich bin der Diener zweier Herren
Mann gegen Mann
Gleich und Gleich gesellt sich gern

Ich bin die Ecke aller Räume
Ich bin der Schatten aller Bäume
In meiner Kette fehlt kein Glied
wenn die Lust von hinten zieht
Mein Geschlecht schimpft mich Verräter
Ich bin der Alptraum aller Väter

Mann gegen Mann
Meine Haut gehört den Herren
Mann gegen Mann
Gleich und Gleich gesellt sich gern

Mann gegen Mann
Doch friert mein Herz an manchen Tagen
Mann gegen Mann
Kalte Zungen die da schlagen

Schwulah

Mich interessiert kein Gleichgewicht
Mir scheint die Sonne ins Gesicht
Doch friert mein Herz an manchen Tagen
Kalte Zungen die da schlagen

Schwulah
Mann gaygen Mann
Destiny smiled on me
and gave me a present
Threw me on a warm star
So close to the skin, so far from the eye
I take my destiny in my own hands
My desire is manned

Where the fresh water dies
because it taints itself in salt
I keep the Little Prince in mind
A king without a queen
When a woman is mistaken about me
then the bright world is confused

Man against man
My skin belongs to the gentlemen
Man against man
Birds of a feather flock together
Man against man
I am the servant of two masters
Man against man
Birds of a feather flock together

I am the corner of all rooms
I am the shadow of all trees
No link is missing in my chain
when lust pulls from behind
My sex calls me a traitor
I am the nightmare of all fathers

Man against man
My skin belongs to the gentlemen
Man against man
Birds of a feather flock together

Man against man
But my heart freezes on some days
Man against man
Cold tongues that beat there

Faggot! 

I'm not interested in balance
The sun shines in my face
But my heart freezes on some days
Cold tongues that beat there

Faggot!
Man gay for man 

“Mann gegen Mann” (Man against man) is a song about the benefits of homosexuality, however all band members are heterosexual. The song is simply about the subject of homosexuality and seems to avoid taking sides. This song is the third single from Rosenrot. Till repeatedly screams “Schwuler” (sung as “Schwulah”, concatenating an “ah” suffix equivalent to a scream “Aaahh!” In English it would be something like saying,”Playa’.”) in the background, which is a derogatory German equivalent to the English word “faggot”.

  1. I came here to see an interpretation for the first time after a long time watching their video of the song.
    I know no german whatsoever and honestly I don’t think I really need to in order to grasp the songs meaning. My exposure to this song has all been from their video and if you know anything about body language you will take away a very different interpretation than what I found here. Watch the video without sound and interpret the body language alone. With knowing no german at all myself that’s what I’m doing every time I listen to the song and Tills body language tells me it’s not a “friendly” song. The meaning I came away from watching and listening (knowing no german or any interpretation of it for the song, and all the men in the video all being oiled up “muscle” heads) is this. The song is flaming the “steroid” types and the effects of their use on a mans sexuality. I may be totally “off” with this, but the fact that all the guys are muscle heads, and Tills body language being what it is, this seems far more likely than what I’ve found online.

  2. Asking questions are genuinely pleasant thing if you
    are not understanding anything fully, however this paragraph provides good understanding even.

    • No, insecure little autistic fuccbois who try to feel better about their failure as person by insulting groups of people better than themselves are.
