Buy Rammstein song “Mein Land” on Amazon

Wohin gehst du, wohin? Where are you going, where?
Ich geh mit mir von Ost nach Süd I’m going from East to South
 
Wohin gehst du, wohin? Where are you going, where?
Ich geh mit mir von Süd nach West I’m going from South to West
 
Wohin gehst du, wohin? Where are you going, where?
Ich geh mit mir von West nach Nord I’m going from North to West
 
Da kommt er angerannt As he comes running
Mit der Fahne in der Hand With the flag in his hand
Mein Land, Mein Land My Country, My Country
 
Du bist hier im meinem Land You’re here in my country
Mein Land, Mein Land My Country, My Country
 
Du bist hier im meinem Land You’re here in my country
Mein Land My country
 
Wohin gehst du, wohin? Where are you going, where?
Ich geh mit mir von Nord nach Ost I go with me from North to East
 
Wohin gehst du, wohin? Where are you going, where?
Ich geh mit mir von Ost nach West I go with me from East to West
 
Wohin gehst du, wohin? Where are you going, where?
Ich geh von Land zu Land allein I go from country to country alone
 
Und nichts und niemand And nothing and nobody
lädt mich zum bleiben ein ever invites me to stay
Mein Land, Mein Land My Country, My Country
 
Du bist hier in meinem Land You’re here in my country
Mein Land, Mein Land My Country, My Country
 
Du bist hier im meinem Land You’re here in my country
Meine Welle und mein Strand My waves and my beach
Jaaaaaaaaaah Jaaaaaaaaaah
 
Eine Stimme aus dem Licht A voice from out of the light
Fällt dem Himmel vom Gesicht falls down from heavens face
Reisst den Horizont entzwei Tears the horizon in two
Wohin gehst du, hier ist nichts mehr frei Wherever you go, there’s nothing left free
 
Das ist mein Land This is my land
Das ist mein Land This is my land
Das ist mein Land This is my land
 
Mein Land, Mein Land My Country, My Country
Du bist hier in meinem Land You’re here in my country
 
Mein Land, Mein Land My Country, My Country
Du bist hier in meinem Land You’re here in my country
Meine Welle und mein Strand My wave and my beach
Mein Land My country
 
Vertrieben, Mein Land expelled (from), My Country
Vertreiben, Mein Land Banished (from), My Country
Vergessen, Mein Land Forgotten, My Country
Nirgends kann ich bleiben Nowhere can I stay
Mein Land My country

  1. So what if they’re against immigration? Everyone has the right to their opinion. It’s called DEMOCRACY. Countries in Africa, China, etc, close their borders everyday. So why can’t we?

    For instance, a few months ago, there were talks of Portuguese teachers going to Angola, Brasil and Moçambique, because there was no jobs for them here in Portugal. Do you know the reply from these countries (which send hundreds of thousands of immigrants here to Portugal)? “We are not needing immigrants, right now”.

    Ironic, isn’t it?

  2. @MI2, resell value is high for Rammstein tickets, but bringing a child in with you has never been an issue. May be different depending on location, but still, money is money to the venue.

  3. @ Shev, my son was 3 (almost 4) when he discovered Rammstein. My husband made CD’s with mixed music (different genres) and whenever there was a Rammstein’s song my son was getting really excited. At age of 4 he was already singing parts of their songs and we are not Germans. I think children are really open minded and sometimes they can understand the music (and it’s power) better than most grown-ups. He is now 6 years old and top 3 are only Rammstein’s songs. We really want to go to a concert with him if there is no age-restriction. He will be so glad!..and of course if we are fast enough to buy tickets 😀

  4. In the video you’ll see the carefree attitude as it was displayed in music back in the 60’s. There weren’t heavy metal bands about fire, sex, and loneliness. There was the beach boys, very light music that supplement your normal life. When Till says “You are here in my land”, I think you could make the connection that he’s referring to this music, because this type of music is a supplement to depression, just as pop music is a supplement to cheerful good times. That’s what’s so great about this band’s songs, though, you can make your connections and see if they fit. There’s no right or wrong, but there are more obvious connections and less obvious ones, and some that are forced upon it.

    For the basic interpretation, though, its safe to say that its calling to the 60s and saying we aren’t as free as we were back then, and we’ll never be unless something is done about it. Some people don’t want to be, though. They want to play by the rules and accept the amount of freedom they are given. That voice falling from heaven and Till Lindemann are reminding you, though. Whenever, wherever you travel, you’ll have someone calling from behind saying one thing.

    “Where are you going? There’s no freedom, wherever you go.”

  5. I’ve loved Rammstein since I was 3, but I never watched the videos until this year. My dad (He’s 33, I myself am 13) told me that Rammstein don’t like the US, but he doesn’t like the US, so it could’ve simply been my dad’s biased view. But I feel as though the song has some meaning to it, even if I don’t understand why I think that.

  6. Mein Land – killer song and video. Can’t wait until these guys come to Australia again. I want one of those flame throwers.

  7. @VIC They played this song at the first 2 rehearsal shows in Berlin last October. For the third rehearsal show it was replaced with Ohne Dich, which stayed for the first leg of the European tour.

  8. also when they do this song in concert can we hope for flaming surf boards!?!

    let me know if any of you think that would be kick ass!

  9. @Tyler… Hope you got their tour for schedule Spring 2012, a number of dates in the States. So glad to have them returning regularly after so long!!

  10. … to be more precise, frustration at NOT being fully accepted into a unified country by the current ruling generation.

  11. Remember that Rammstein members were immigrants. I was born (1973) and grew up in West Germany, when that still existed, and the were strong sentiments on both sides (no pun intended) of the issue of the wall coming down. The 10 years after was very difficult for West Germans, because it really dragged the economy down, violent crimes were up, and so was homelessness. Also, the sales of illegal drugs and human trafficking increased dramatically as the underworld burgeoned.

    So former East Germans, who were the product of the Soviet doctrines of racism and anti-religionsim, can fully understand the frustration at being fully accepted into a unified country by the current ruling generation.

  12. Till wrote this song at the same beach where the video was filmed after getting into trouble with the local rats. For example “Wohin Ghest Du” is being asked by the rats. And “Ich Geh Mit Mir Von Ost Nach West” is being replied by the outsider. Also the chorus is another giveaway along with the “Hier Ist Nich Mehr Frei, Das Ist Mein Land” part. The song is basically about someone who is very protective of their territory and doesn’t allow any outsiders. I don’t really think It refers to Germany and the Turks, or any anti immigration issues.

  13. @Der Wahnsinn: Ok that´s about I also figured out. I also like the leaked demo better than the single. It feels more complete.

  14. @Bjorn The longer version is the leaked demo, which is overall a better arrangement than the shorter single version.
