Kann man Herzen brechen
können Herzen sprechen
kann man Herzen quählen
kann man Herzen stehlen

Sie woll´n mein Herz am rechten Fleck
doch seh ich dann nach unten weck
dann schlägt es links

links

können Herzen singen
kann ein Herz zerspringen
können Herzen rein sein
kann ein Herz aus Stein sein

Sie woll´n mein Herz am rechten Fleck
doch seh ich dann nach unten weck
dann schlägt es links

links ... links ... links

links zwo drei vier
links zwo, links zwo, links zwo drei vier, links
links zwo, links zwo, links zwo drei vier, links
links zwo drei vier

kann man Herzen fragen
ein Kind darunter tragen
kann man es verschenken
mit dem Herzen denken

Sie woll´n mein Herz am rechten Fleck
doch seh ich dann nach unten weck
dann schlägt es in der linken Brust
der Neider hat es schlecht gewußt

links, links, links, links

links zwo drei vier, links
links zwo drei vier, links

links zwo, links zwo, links zwo drei vier, links
links zwo, links zwo, links zwo drei vier, links
links zwo, links zwo, links zwo drei vier, links
links zwo, links zwo, links zwo drei vier, links
links zwo, links zwo, links zwo drei vier, links
Can hearts be broken
could hearts talk
can hearts get pained
can hearts get stolen

they want my heart on the right place
but if i look down on me
then it beats left

left

can hearts sing
can a heart burst
can hearts be pure
can a heart be of stone

they want my heart on the right place
but if i look down on me
then it beats left

left ... left ... left

left two three four
left two, left two, left two three four, left
left two, left two, left two three four, left
left two three four

can hearts be asked
could ther be a child under it
can you give it away
with the heart thinking

they want my heart on the right place
but if i look down on me
then it beats in the left breast
the envier knows it´s bad

left, left, left, left

left two three four, left
left two three four, left

left two, left two, left two three four, left
left two, left two, left two three four, left
left two, left two, left two three four, left
left two, left two, left two three four, left
left two, left two, left two three four, left

This song was written in response to the many claims that Rammstein are Nazis that badly influenced various school shootings. The song’s chorus shows that the band’s political views are on the left (2 3 4). The song also has a double meaning. The line “Links 2 3 4″³ also means that their hearts beat on the left.

Links zwo, drei, vier (Left 2 (both zwo and zwei mean 2 in German but due to their similar sounds zwo is used here) 3 4)is also a German army chant.

    If he were speaking English, he’d say it more like this:

    They want my heart to be on my right side
    But I look down and see
    That it beats on my left

  • üglug the brute

    RAMMSTEIN IS SUPER COOL!!!!!

    (I come from the Netherland)

  • Collin

    Links 2,3,4 is a “Punk anthem” (text+background from band) !
    and the “right touch” that some guys hear is pure irony.

    the song was made agains german/int. media accusations that they are “right”.

    sorry for my bad english, im german ;p

    LOOK ADOLF,

    Being German and Being Proud of your country is NOT to be confused with being a Nazi. (You didn’t even spell it right!) I am an American. I would think that there are quit a few Americans that are proud of their country. THAT does not make them part of the KKK or the Black Panthers. It does not make them anti Semites. It does not Advocate Nazism. I think about all of the Scheiße that RAMMSTEIN have had to put up with because of a certin group or belief.

    I for one,…. my heart goes out to you Rammstein.

    You guys have written some of the most thought-provoking, insightful, honest, beautiful pieces of music on the planet. Truly made to stand the test of time.

    It is this narrow-minded, inconsiderate, uncompromising behavior that still pressing these issues. I am sure they are tired of beating a dead horse…….. if you can’t comprehend don’t try.

    MANCHE FÜHREN MANCHE FOLGEN
    Some lead, some follow
    Heart and soul, hand in hand
    Forwards, forwards, don’t stop
    Reason gains meaning and form

  • adolf

    I do not know why you people trying to say that rammstein is not a natzi group. it is a very easy to understand that they hearts are with their fathers and with their fatherland but they cant say it with the common tongue so they use simbols to say what is in their hearts.

  • Kim

    I agree with P.
    the song sounds extremely right wing for people who can’t understand German and what he’s saying.

    Those are generally the people who will assume they are Nazis- they’re judging what they don’t understand.

  • Ace400x

    Ok, cna we consider the fact that they’re just using the whole “heart” thing just to sing? Can we not look too deeply into this and just pump up the volume and make our ears bleed and faces melt from pure awsome metal?

  • immafirinmahlazer

    why the F- would it show their political view? isnt it obvious rammstein doesnt mess with that kind of stuff? ffs >.<

  • P

    As I recall the name of the NAZI party was selected simply to have a broad appeal. Socialism was popular at that time. So that was thrown in with German, national and workers. It’s well documented that Hitler detested socialism. Hitler is clearly NOT a leftist. Just like now in America the Tea party represents revolution AND patriotism, who wouldn’t love it? It’s not a group of people drinking tea or supporting the tea industry. It’s just a (somewhat) clever name to get them votes.

    Rammstein isn’t a political band, but I read a quote from one of the band members saying the song means: ‘if anything we’re on the left’. People hear Germans making aggressive music and playing with fire and call them NAZIs. Not only does the band dispell those claims but they do it with a hard, military-themed song. It’s a big middle finger to those people. And an illustration that you can’t judge someone for what they look like or a band by what they sound like. And you definitely can’t tell someone who they are or what they think or feel.

  • kc

    According to the adjective “sozialistiche” from the name of Hitler’s Party (Deutsche NationalSOZIALISTISCHE Arbeiterpartei) … it could be concluded, that the party is left or socialist-oriented … so they are marching on the left! ;)

  • Seraphim

    Personally, I feel this song is about stating the obvious in a way… Like, “you speak to me about metaphors… but I’m telling you the facts”… Like, “You ask if a heart can sing… you should know it can’t truly sing, beyond a metaphor… You act like you want my heart to be on the right side of the political spectrum, but you should know that my heart is really in the left side of my chest… my thoughts on politics doesn’t change where my heart is… what you believe me to be doesn’t effect who I truly am, and that is a fact”.

  • Adrain

    This song I love for moral reasons. Truth is anti-german nazi peeps (those who believe all german are nazis) this song is anti-nazis. My heart beats on the left two three our means “we chose to be on the left side” and the left side is the side where the peaceful germans were, and on the right were the nazis or whatnot.
    At first though, this song scared me ’cause I’m only fifteen and I didn’t even know what it meant. :(

  • E-SE

    My favorite song! (I think it will be forever)

    This song has a special meaning for me. Especially this part: “…der Neider hat es schlecht gewußt…”

  • Charismatic Enigma

    Imagine if you and your band were vehemently accused of being racist, and in response, you and your bandmates went on stage and performed an old-school 1920s black-face minstrel show. BUT… the entire show was a tribute to Black freedom movements, Dr. King, Rosa Parks, things of that sort.

    This is sort of like what Rammstein did with this song. On the surface, they loudly appear to be extremist right-wing warmongers, BUT if you pay attention to what they’re actually saying… it’s the exact opposite.

  • oFZo

    My interpretation of the message is as follows:
    In short: “People want me (my heart) to be at the right side (of the political spectrum) but when I look down it’s on the left.”

    I guess that IS a rather clear statement.

    At first I wasn’t sure but I can’t think of alternative ways to interpret the lines “dann schlägt es in der linken Brust, der Neider hat es schlecht gewusst” (which I think mean as much as: “then it beats in the left side of my chest, the person claiming the opposite was (is) wrong.”)

    My main language is Dutch, not English or German so I could well be way off in both interpretation and explanation :p

    On the other hand all the questions about what hearts should do or be able to do confuse me a little, now I guess they represent either the thought process leading to the “conclusion” contained in the lines mentioned above or some form of statement meaning the writer doesn’t have or want to have an opinion.

  • Derek

    Sorry, this song is not really their declaration of being leftists, but another way to f@#$ with people’s minds. Rammstein is thankfully apolitical and Til is a brilliant lyricist.

  • Micky

    One of the best songs ever!!! I love Rammstein!

  • megan

    i love the band if it wsnt German it wouldnt sound and badass as it does! i love his song!

  • http://danines.piczo.com daniel

    wtf¿ u gay

  • Bizzeeb

    I’m not so sure these guys intended this song to state what end of the political spectrum they are on.
    For me it simply shows the frustration with any group pressuring/programming you to believe or act in a manner completely opposite of what is inherently logical.

  • Navjot

    German or not

    Nazi or not

    this song is amazing

    Cheers :-)

  • Hell's High

    I love this song, it has such great melody and the lyrics are amazing.

    Matt Hallock, wtf?

  • matt hallock
