Rammstein - Mutter (English translation)

English translation


Versions: #1#2#3
The tears of past children
I slide them on a white hair
Throw the wet chain into the air
And wish I had a mother
No sun shone for me
No breast gave me milk
In my throat there's a tube
I've got no navel on my belly
I couldn't lick any nipple
And (had) no wrinkle to hide in
Nobody gave me a name
Begotten in haste and without semen
To the mother who has never given birth to me
I swore tonight
I'll gift her a disease
And drown her in the river afterwards
An eel is living in her lungs
On my forehead there's a mother's mark
Eliminate it with a knife's kiss
Even if I have to die from it
Even if I have to bleed to death
Oh give me strength

Not a bad translation, a few suggestions though
Muttermal = Birthmark
entferne = Remove

Also begotten is 'old', I would use fathered or maybe even born
