Rammstein Reise Reise lyric with English translation

Auch auf den Wellen wird gefochten
Wo Fisch und Fleisch zur See geflochten
Der eine sticht die Lanz' im Heer
Der andere wirft sie in das Meer

Ahoi

Reise, Reise Seemann Reise
Jeder tut's auf seine Weise
Der eine stößt den Speer zum Mann
Der andere zum Fische dann

Reise, Reise Seemann Reise
Und die Wellen weinen leise
In ihrem Blute steckt ein Speer
Bluten leise in das Meer

Die Lanze muss im Fleisch ertrinken
Fisch und Mann zur Tiefe sinken
Wo die schwarze Seele wohnt
ist kein Licht am Horizont

Ahoi

Reise, Reise Seemann Reise
Jeder tut's auf seine Weise
Der eine stößt den Speer zum Mann
Der andere zum Fische dann

Reise, Reise Seemann Reise
Und die Wellen weinen leise
In ihrem Blute steckt ein Speer
Bluten leise in das Meer

Reise, Reise Seemann Reise
Und die Wellen weinen leise
In ihrem Herzen steckt ein Speer
Bluten sich am Ufer leer
Even on the waves there is fighting
Where fish and flesh are woven into sea
One stabs the lance while in the army
Another throws it into the ocean

Ahoy

Arise, arise seaman arise
Each does it in his own way
One thrusts the spear into a man
Another then into the fish

Arise, arise seaman arise
And the waves cry softly
In their blood a spear is lodged
They bleed softly into the ocean

The lance must be drowned in flesh
Fish and man sink to the depths
Where the black soul dwells
there is no light on the horizon

Ahoy

Arise, arise seaman arise
Each does it in his own way
One thrusts the spear into a man
Another then into the fish

Arise, arise seaman arise
And the waves cry softly
In their blood a spear is lodged
They bleed softly into the ocean

Arise, arise seaman arise
And the waves cry softly
In their heart a spear is lodged
They bleed themselves dry on the shore

Reise, Reise is about mutiny on a ship, and the opening song of the 2004/05 Ahoi! Tour.

  1. I really don’t know why… but I think because all the Germans are patriots, Rammstein sang this song for Bismarck; and now after 15 years, Sabaton sings a song about Bismarck too. I think Sabaton sings Bismarck because of Rise rise.
    (I’m not English so please Excuse me about my weak English)

  2. This theory about the song and the album cover being related makes sense… Even the album cover is orange… The color of the “black box” is actually orange, which also helps us believe the song is about the flight accident 🙂

  3. To me, it sounds like a very obvious double meaning about homosexuality. Thrusting the lance in man, the spear must be drowned in flesh, bleeding out on the shore…

  4. seeman is a man who wrote a book on social alienation. so I believe this song is about breaking free from this stigma/condition by any means necessary.
    thrusting is spear into either a man or a fish means breaking free either by murder/violence or by a hobby.
    Reise Seeman Reise!

  5. Reise means travel, end of the story

    By the way my favourite song from Rammstein, so basically my favourite song all around 🙂
