"Links 2-3-4" (German for Left 2-3-4) is a song by the industrial metal band Rammstein, released on their third studio album, Mutter (Mother).

Overview

The lyrics were written in response to allegations of fascism/nazism directed at the band. In the song they say "my heart beats to the left, 2-3-4", meaning they are on the left of the political spectrum. The refrain is an allusion to the revolutionary song Einheitsfrontlied, written by Bertolt Brecht for the Communist Party of Germany in the 1930s and re-popularized by Hannes Wader in the German Democratic Republic.[1]

Music video

The music video for the song uses CGI to portray the struggle of an ant colony against attacking beetles. During the video, the band can be seen playing on a movie theater screen. There is also a right hand covered by ants near the end of the video.

Lyrics

German English translation

Kann man Herzen brechen
Konnen Herzen sprechen
Kann man Herzen qualen
Kann man Herzen stehlen

Sie wollen mein Herz am rechten Fleck
Doch seh ich dann nach unten weg
Da schlagt es links

Konnen Herzen singen
Kann ein Herz zerspringen
Konnen Herzen rein sein
Kann ein Herz aus Stein sein

Sie wollen mein Herz am rechten Fleck
Doch seh ich dann nach unten weg
Da schlagt es links
Links zwo drei vier

Kann man Herzen fragen
Ein Kind darunter tragen
Kann man es verschenken
Mit dem Herzen denken

Sie wollen mein Herz am rechten Fleck
Doch seh ich dann nach unten weg
Da schlagt es in der linken Brust
Der Neider hat es schlecht gewu?t

Links zwo drei vier

Can one break a heart
Can hearts speak
Can one torment a heart
Can one steal hearts

They wanted my heart on the right side
So I looked on it down way
There, it beats on the left

Can hearts sing
Can a heart burst
Can hearts be clean
Can a heart be of stone

They wanted my heart on the right side
So I looked on it down way
There, it beats on the left
Left two three four

Can one ask a heart
Carry a child under it
Can one gift a heart
Think with the heart

They wanted my heart on the right side
So I looked on it down way
There, it beats in the left breast
The jealous one knew it wrong

Left two three four
