Rammstein has some. Yes, it's a German band, yes, it's NDH, yes, the singer may be the scariest guy alive... But God, isn't "Ohne Dich" just...
"Without you I cannot be Without you With you I am alone too Without you Without you I count the hours without you With you the seconds stand still They aren't worth it without you..."
"Klavier" is one of the saddest songs, as it combines melancholic music with heart-wrenching lyrics, and Till sings it so emotionally, it's the perfect example of a Tear Jerker Song. Also, the lyrics do hint at a tragedy.
"The last kiss was so long ago The last kiss He does not remember it anymore..."
The song is about a boy who stays with his girl while she dies. They kiss one last time, then she dies. It is implied that he never kisses anyone agian after that last kiss.
"Mutter" is pure horror and agony all in one, especially with the music video. The song is an anti-genetic engineering song, and the music video features the lead singer naked and bald in a concrete hole in the ground. Another person, presumably the singer's clone, is making an epic journey through a swamp and terrain to get to the hole, where he brings a bowl of water for the naked man to drink. The horrifying part is this - you have no idea whether the naked, imprisoned one is the clone, or if the well-dressed version is the clone, having replaced the original.
The music video for "Rosenrot" is about a group of priests (the band members) coming upon a village, where they are all enticed and utterly enchanted by a very young girl (Rosenrot). Every night, they gather together in a circle and flagellate themselves, likely for thinking impure thoughts about her. The lead singer ends up being totally seduced by her, and she manipulates him into murdering her parents. When he emerges from the house, she smiles, then shouts - and the town wakes up and realizes he's killed her family. They burn him at the stake, and the girl is the first one to toss the torch onto the pile to set him aflame. AND she's hugging one of the other priests for support.
The song, however, is about a girl who makes her lover climb a dangerous cliff to retrieve a rose that blooms there. He does, because she wants it - falls to his death. Quite a sad story, and keeping with the theme of the video to a certain extent - of a man who loved a woman so much he died for her, when all she cared about was herself.
"Wo Bist Du". The lyrics about a person going into a downward spiral after a loved one dies and the end trying to commit suicide.
"The pretty girls are not pretty The warm hands are so cold All clocks have stopped It's no longer healthy to laugh, and soon"
"I look for you behind the light Where are you I don't want to be so alone Where are you I look for you under every stone Where are you I fall asleep with a knife"
"Morgenstern". The song is about a girl who is so physically ugly that she hides during the daytime so that the light never has to shine on her face, but at night she pleads with the stars to "cast a warm light upon my frightening face/and tell me that I'm not alone." The way Till sings the chorus, injecting the words with just the right amount of loneliness and desperation...wow. Just wow.
In the song there's another person, somebody who sees the girl and is in utter despair because he finds her so ugly...and yet he can't stop loving her. So he, too, prays to the stairs for her to become pretty, asking them to tell her that she's not alone.
"And the star wants to shine Onto the beloved of mine It warms my chest and shakes Where life beats To see with the heart She is beautiful."
"Seemann" is a slow-paced song about someone drowning at sea, which Till sings in a higher, almost pleading voice.
"Now you are standing by the lantern You have tears in your face You take the fire from the candle Time stands still and it becomes autumn."
"They only spoke of your mother Only the night is so merciless At the end I am left alone Time stands still And I am cold." ——
No mention of 'Haifisch'? Yes, it sounds a bit aggressive - it's a Rammstein song, after all - but if you understand the lyrics they're actually quite touching. The song is basically about how dedicated the members all are to the band and to one another and how close they are. One line translates to 'if one [of us] isn't keeping up, we stop right away'.
