  • The song is about a kid who has an affair with his piano teacher, but finds out that she is cheating on him ("It only seemed like I was the only one she played for"). He kills her, which his parents later discover, whereafter the corpse is removed, leaving him sick and alone. >>

  • Killerlyric from UsaThis is the greatest song of all time, the emotion, you can feel the lust, and the great pain at the end when they remove her body. Rammstein I wish you made more with such conviction. Klavier literally changed the way I look at music. Thank you for that.
  • Feasega from IsraelThis is a bit infuriating, you can easily check the translation site which clearly says "One of Rammstein's few slow songs, Klavier is about a man who loved the way his girlfriend played the piano so much he locked her away in the attic. One day her parents and the police make the man open the door and they see their beautiful daughter tied to the piano dead."
