Sie ist hässlich dass es graut wenn sie in den Himmel schaut Dann fürchtet sich das Licht Scheint ihr von unten ins Gesicht So muss sie sich am Tag verstecken Will das Licht doch nicht erschrecken Lebt im Schatten bis der Schein vergeht Sieht einen Stern im Zwielicht prangen und fleht Mal mir Schönheit auf die Wangen Morgenstern ach scheine auf das Antlitz mein Wirf ein warmes Licht auf mein Ungesicht Sag mir ich bin nicht alleine Hässlich, du bist hässlich Ich bin allein zur Nacht gegangen Die späten Vögel nicht mehr sangen Sah Sonnenkinder im Gewimmel und so rief ich in den gestirnten Himmel Morgenstern ach scheine auf die Liebste meine Wirf ein warmes Licht auf ihr Ungesicht Sag ihr sie ist nicht alleine Morgenstern ach scheine auf die Seele meine Wirf ein warmes Licht auf ein Herz das bricht Sag ihr dass ich weine Denn du, du bist hässlich Du bist einfach hässlich Der Mensch ist doch ein Augentier Schöne Dinge wünsch' ich mir Doch du, du bist nicht schön, nein Morgenstern ach scheine auf die Liebste meine Wirf ein warmes Licht auf ihr Ungesicht Sag ihr sie ist nicht alleine Und der Stern will scheinen Auf die Liebste meine Wärmt die Brust mir bebt wo das Leben schlägt Mit dem Herzen sehen Sie ist wunderschön
She's so ugly that it gets dark when she looks into the sky Then the light is frightened It shines into her face from below So she must hide during the day She just doesn't want to scare the light She lives in the shadows until the glow fades She sees a star shining in the twilight and pleads Paint beauty onto my cheeks Morningstar, oh shine onto the visage of mine Cast a warm light onto my frightening face Tell me I'm not alone Ugly, you are ugly I went alone in the night The late birds no longer sang I saw children of the sun in the throng so I cried into the starry heavens Morningstar, oh shine onto the beloved of mine Cast a warm light onto her frightening face Tell her she's not alone Morningstar, oh shine onto the soul of mine Cast a warm light onto a heart that's breaking Tell her that I'm crying Because you, you are ugly You are simply ugly Humans are just creatures of the eye Beautiful things are what I want But you, you aren't beautiful, no Morningstar, oh shine onto the beloved of mine Cast a warm light onto her frightening face Tell her she's not alone And the star wants to shine onto the beloved of mine It warms my breast and shakes where life beats To see with the heart she is simply beautiful
A girl who is so ugly that she hides from the daylight so as not to scare it away. At night she pleads with the morning star to make her beautiful.
Venus is often called the morning star, Venus is named after the Roman goddess of love and beauty. Sounds like she is asking the goddess to change her face. Sorry, no devils here.
This lyrics can not be written by any human being. They’re “simply beautiful.”
Just wanted to say that this is my favourate ever ever ever Rammstein song. It makes me cry when i watch the live version on Vokerball much to the amusement of my friends. Its the emotion in Richards face that does it every time.
yeah, i very agree with u
Does it really matter what it means? It sounds good, right? And noone is getting barbed wire in their urethra, right?
I have always been surprised at the way an ordinary commentator lends so much more credence and attaches a lot more importance to waking events than to those occurring in dreams… Man… is above all the toy of his memory.
I don’t think Till is referring to anything specific by ‘Morningstar’ but rather just a higher entity in general.
the morning star is VENUS/LUCIFER
This is so sad… I can relate with the girl in this song, I used to think I was so ugly that I wanted to die! <C
Yet it calls up with (can’t remind who said now): “Remember, my friend, eyes are blind, that’s only the human’s heart one can truely see with.”
Whoever created this song, they’re just wonderful! So good they’re Rammstein.
one of their best songs.
One of my favourite songs!! Till’s voice here is amazing!!
When I first heard this song and understood nearly nothing I imagined a nun or a female saint who is praying to God about smth (while the choir is singing) and finally Licht comes down and takes her up in the air and she is naked in the weightlessness with bright red ribbons around her body.
Well lirycs happen to be far more better than I imagined!
Merry Meet. I really think so too. I have been looking around the internet for some time this week, and its really hard to find anything entertaining to read on blogs=P Maybe thats because there are too many of those around =) But your website actually keeps catching my attention. Great stories, and cool design ^__^. Ill be sure to give it more time now =P
I was also thinking about the possible biblical interpritation of the lyrics. But I don’t think it’s a satanic “plee” or prayer. Lucifer is often refered to as the first revolutionary and free thinker, who took a stand for what he belived to be right rather then following the stream. And as such the biblical devil is often used as a symbol or concept rather then an actual entity.
I’m fairly sure the “Morning Star” is a satanic reference, as lucifer is often referred to as the Lightbringer or the Morning Star.
I think that the song is a sort of appeal to satan “wirf ein warmes Licht auf mein Ungesicht”, runs with the idea that the singer is a satanist and is appealing to be cleansed – or something to that effect.
That’s the impression I gather.
The drums are amazing in this song, might even be the best drums in all songs
