Rammstein Spring lyric with English translation

Auf einer Brücke ziemlich hoch
Hält ein Mann die Arme auf
Da steht er nun und zögert noch
Die Menschen strömen gleich zuhauf
Auch ich lass mir das nicht entgehen
Das will ich aus der Nähe sehen
Ich stell mich in die erste Reihe
und schreie

Der Mann will von der Brücke steigen
Die Menschen fangen an zu hassen
Bilden einen dichten Reigen
Und wollen ihn nicht nach unten lassen
So steigt er noch mal nach oben
Und der Mob fängt an zu toben
Sie wollen seine Innereien
Und schreien

Spring
Erlöse mich
Spring
Enttäusch mich nicht
Spring für mich
Spring ins Licht
Spring

Jetzt fängt der Mann zu weinen an
Heimlich schiebt sich eine Wolke
fragt sich Was hab ich getan
vor die Sonne es wird kalt
Ich wollte nur zur Aussicht gehen
die Menschen laufen aus den Reihen
und in den Abendhimmel sehen
Und sie schreien

Spring

Sie schreien
Spring
Erlöse mich
Spring
Enttäusch mich nicht
Spring für mich
Spring ins Licht
Spring

Heimlich schiebt sich eine Wolke
vor die Sonne es wird kalt
Doch tausend Sonnen brennen nur für dich
Ich schleich mich heimlich auf die Brücke
Tret ihm von hinten in den Rücken
Erlöse ihn von dieser Schmach
und schrei ihm nach

Spring

Spring
Erlöse dich
Spring
Enttäusch mich nicht
Spring für mich
Spring
Enttäusch mich nicht
On a bridge, quite high
A man holds his arms open
There he stands and still hesitates
Right away the people swarm in droves
I won't miss out on it either
I want to see it up close
I get into the first row
And scream

The man wants to climb from the bridge
The people begin to hate
They form a dense crowd
And don't want to let him down
So he climbs back up
And the mob begins to rage
They want his innards
And scream

Jump
Redeem me
Jump
Don't disappoint me
Jump for me
Jump into the light
Jump

Now the man begins to cry
A cloud moves in secret
Asking himself what have I done
in front of the sun, it gets cold
I just wanted to see the view
the people break ranks
and look into the evening sky
And they scream

Jump

They scream
Jump
Redeem me
Jump
Don't disappoint me
Jump for me
Jump into the light
Jump

A cloud moves in secret
in front of the sun, it gets cold
But a thousand suns burn just for you
I creep onto the bridge in secret
and kick him in the back from behind
I redeem him from this shame
and I scream to him

Jump

Jump
Redeem yourself
Jump
Don't disappoint me
Jump for me
Jump
Don't disappoint me 

“Spring” (Jump) is about a man who climbs high onto a bridge just to see the view. A crowd gathers, thinking that he wants to commit suicide and encourages the man to jump. The man tries to climb down but the crowd doesn’t let him. In the end, with people screaming at him, he is kicked off the bridge by a member of the crowd (Till’s “character” in the song), saving him, as they see it, from his shame (of being mentally unable to jump). The song has a very melodic, gentle and melancholy keyboard-based chorus, accompanied by Till’s trademark voice.

  1. I kind of think it’s a metaphor about himself (Till) as a performer/man… having to “jump” through hoops to satisfy a crowd, the media/ critics and women. The “pushing” that occurs is himself to do it every time.

  2. This song reminds me of something that happened in the late 00s in Seattle. A man was walking across the Queen Anne bridge, wanting to glance at the view, had no idea of jumping, did not, as cars (do not know how many) passed and people shouted out jump. The man disregarded it, but it probably stuck with him, would have with me for years, and I have not even tried to commit suicide. People do not take suicide well and consider it a sin, a shame. I do not think anyone wanted him to die per say, but did not understand the percussion of what could have happened, and even if one would jump, one would not always die. Upsetting, frightening, and disgusting world we live in.

  3. This song is sad and terrifying, but catchy and real. I see this song from two perspectives, the mob wanted to kill a human, who did not do anything, but at the same time, they thought he was suicidal (since he was standing on top) and viewed that as a mental issue, as a taboo, consequently, wanting him to be out of his misery strangely thinking that they were actually doing him a favor. I wonder how it would have played if the man standing on the bridge told them right away that he had no idea of jumping. Sad yet poignant.

  4. this song it remind me “the hunt”. a film by Thomas Vinterberg. Lucas (the main character) is accused
    for something he did’t do. Klara ( also a main character) who start up this charge, isn’t sure for that but she begin to get more and more certain stimulated by all her relatives. so now she hasn’t any doubt that Lucas is guilty so do all the community. and all Lucas life turn into a nightmare from something that never happened. the same in this songs, the main character
    suffers and is stimulated from the mob that his real attention was to jump not to see the view.

    • Only in that incident, he was saved at the end, the police helped him down, put him in a box for his own safety (because the crowd was still against him, oddly he even wanted to jump out of the box in spite of this), and desired help. He also had a RPM and threw lights and his cell phone down towards the public. He was on the ashes of a Ferris wheel. The onlookers were drunk, who even sang “jump”, but the 34 year old probably was too. It was 4 am on a Saturday. I do not know how many were there and what their intentions would have been if they were not drunk, but yikes. I do not think though everyone in the crowd wanted him to jump.

  5. Just listened to this song again after some years timeout and just realized how perfect compozed this song is and that this is how rammsten generally sound according to me to produce unique quality music that’s arts rammstein on fire over and over again

  6. a song needs to have 2 major components to be successful…
    1)to be catchy
    2)to appeal to ones interests
    this song has captured both those elements and has truly made an awesome song good job rammstein
