Lyrics

Rammstein - ein Mensch brennt
Rammstein - Fleischgeruch in der Luft
Rammstein - ein Kind stirbt
Rammstein - die Sonne scheint

Rammstein - ein Flammenmeer
Rammstein - Blut gerinnt auf dem Asphalt
Rammstein - Mütter schreien
Rammstein - die Sonne scheint

Rammstein - ein Massengrab
Rammstein - kein Entrinnen
Rammstein - kein Vogel singt mehr
Rammstein - und die Sonne scheint

Rammstein, Rammstein, Rammstein, Rammstein
