Rammstein Mann gegen Mann lyrics with English translation

Buy Rammstein song “Mann gegen Mann” on Amazon

Das Schicksal hat mich angelacht Destiny smiled on me
und mir ein Geschenk gemacht and gave me a present
Warf mich auf einen warmen Stern Threw me on a warm star
Der Haut so nah dem Auge fern So close to the skin, so far from the eye
Ich nehm mein Schicksal in die Hand I take my destiny in my own hands
Mein Verlangen ist bemannt My desire is manned
 
Wo das süße Wasser stirbt Where the fresh water dies
weil es sich im Salz verdirbt because it taints itself in salt
trag ich den kleinen Prinz im Sinn I keep the Little Prince in mind
Ein König ohne Königin A king without a queen
Wenn sich an mir ein Weib verirrt When a woman is mistaken about me
dann ist die helle Welt verwirrt then the bright world is confused
 
Mann gegen Mann Man against man
Meine Haut gehört den Herren My skin belongs to the gentlemen
Mann gegen Mann Man against man
Gleich und Gleich gesellt sich gern Birds of a feather flock together
Mann gegen Mann Man against man
Ich bin der Diener zweier Herren I am the servant of two masters
Mann gegen Mann Man against man
Gleich und Gleich gesellt sich gern Birds of a feather flock together
 
Ich bin die Ecke aller Räume I am the corner of all rooms
Ich bin der Schatten aller Bäume I am the shadow of all trees
In meiner Kette fehlt kein Glied No link is missing in my chain
wenn die Lust von hinten zieht when lust pulls from behind
Mein Geschlecht schimpft mich Verräter My sex calls me a traitor
Ich bin der Alptraum aller Väter I am the nightmare of all fathers
 
Mann gegen Mann Man against man
Meine Haut gehört den Herren My skin belongs to the gentlemen
Mann gegen Mann Man against man
Gleich und Gleich gesellt sich gern Birds of a feather flock together
 
Mann gegen Mann Man against man
Doch friert mein Herz an manchen Tagen But my heart freezes on some days
Mann gegen Mann Man against man
Kalte Zungen die da schlagen Cold tongues that beat there
 
Schwulah Faggot!
 
Mich interessiert kein Gleichgewicht I’m not interested in balance
Mir scheint die Sonne ins Gesicht The sun shines in my face
Doch friert mein Herz an manchen Tagen But my heart freezes on some days
Kalte Zungen die da schlagen Cold tongues that beat there
 
Schwulah Faggot!
Mann gaygen Mann 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. Its not “against” homosexuality, per se, but probably a deeper understanding of the inner torment that homosexuality brings upon gay people. Social as well as personal pressure creates a divided “secret” side that struggles with the self. Notice the “anguish/anger” (then again, it IS Till!) in his expressions…and don’t forget the demon…

  2. yeah i got it,but if u know,lots of rammstein songs are confusing,like this! and i say they just put across about something.in this song about gay or homophobia as u said.

    i think lots of rammstein songs are like this,PUT ACROSS ABOUT SOMETHING! :d

    tnx for UR answer rammsteinskyes,anyway…:d

  3. How can you say they are against homosexuality because of one word, when the entire song is about being gay?

    e.g. “I love being gay I love it It’s pretty cool, faggot, I love it.”

    Maybe a bit extreme, but you get the point. Also, have you seen the video? Nobody against homosexuality would even dare to glance at it much less star in it. lol

  4. how can i be more c;ear !!! This song is AGAINST people who hate gays…AGAINST HOMOPHOBIA. If you don’t understand that…I can’t help 🙂

  5. Neon, if you know/knew Rammstein at all or even just a little bit, you would know you are wrong man…

    RAMMSTEIN = LIVE AND LET LIVE

  6. I seen the music video. It’s pretty smexy XD remember kiddies, it’s only gay if you make eye contact with the other man! Only Rammstein has the balls to make a video like that

  7. i think this song was written against to gays
    by the way schwul means fag
    you can get song’s mean from this word

  8. Yeah, this song has no ambiguities when it comes to the benefits of homosexuality. As said before, Rammstein doesn’t seem to take sides on the matter, they’re just commentating.

  9. where are the benefits?!?!?!?!

    ““Mann gegen Mann” (Man against man) is a song about the benefits of homosexuality”

  10. Only R+ would have the balls to write a song like this, and even more so, shoot a video like this !!! I’m a HUGE RAMMSTEIN Fan and the video is a bit too much even for me. You have to know that R+ are all about shocking and pushing back the line.
