Charted: 30

Songfacts®:

  • "Ich Will" is German for "I Want." In this song, Rammstein is imploring the audience to listen to the band, see them, understand them and trust them. The whole song he is "talking" to the fans and in the end he asks them if they can see them. A translation:
    könnt ihr uns hören? - can you hear us?
    könnt ihr uns sehen? - can you see us?
    könnt ihr uns fühlen? - can you feel us?
    wir verstehen euch nicht - we can't understand you. >>
