Album: Sehnsucht (1997)
  • This song is about the questioning of angels and the afterlife ("Engel" is German for "Angel"). It could also be about living life without out the rules of religion stopping you. >>

  • Janina from Colone, Germanyby the way...Engel is not a Song from Till, the hole song is from Richard Kruspe
  • Bas from Haarlem, Netherlandsive always thought the songs was about hookers
  • James from Grimsby, United Kingdomif you want to see it better this is in english

    the video is taken from Neon Genesis Evangelion, which is about angels attacking the world... it fits very well with the music
  • Sibella from Pretoria, --I love the whistling!
  • Bernd from Geilenkirchen, GermanyAs almost every song by Rammstein, this is another romantic tragedy; Till sometimes may cross the thin line between sick thoughts and poetry, but - hey! - he is not the one and only romantic who does. A rough translation of the lyrics could be (for those who have no idea):-)
    1.Whoever may be good on earth in a lifetime
    Is going to be an angel after death
    Looking up in the skies you ask yourself
    Why you cannot see them (angels)
    Chorus: Only after the clouds have gone to sleep
    You can see us in the sky
    We are afraid and we are alone
    God knows I don't want to be an angel
    2.They live behind the sunshine
    separated from us and far away in infinity
    The have to claw on some stars (very tight)
    so they shall not fall out of the sky
  • Daniel from Perth, AustraliaEven though I have no idea what the lead singer is saying, I love this song.
