Ich weiß alles (song)
|Ich weiß alles|
|Song from the album Seelenbahnen|
- The song is performed by German schlager music singer Roland Kaiser and was released on his album Seelenbahnen on 30 May 2014.
- The song was written for Roland by Till.
Roland Kaiser and Till Lindemann had met at a few events, and Kaiser was also a guest at Lindemann's 50th birthday. Kaiser eventually asked Lindemann if he would write for him, as that would be a form of collaboration that would leave them both with their credibility despite operating in radically different genres of music.
According to Kaiser, the lyrics are about a man who is in a partnership with a woman. She cheats on him, again and again, he knows it, and she knows that he knows. This was something Kaiser could relate to:
Na, ich glaube schon, dass die Herren privat ähnliche Empfindungen haben wie ich. Wenn sich ein Herr Rammstein, also ein Herr Lindemann verliebt, dann hat er doch die gleichen Flugzeuge im Bauch. Und die Frage, die wir immer wieder stellen - klappt das mit der Frau? -, die wird nie vergehen. Da sind große Opern und Operetten geschrieben worden, das wird uns ewig beschäftigen.
Well, I do believe that the gentlemen privately have similar feelings as I do. When a Mr. Rammstein, a Mr. Lindemann falls in love, he has the same butterflies in his stomach. And the question we always ask - will it work with the woman? - that will never go away. Great operas and operettas have been written, that will occupy us forever.
