Stein um Stein. Song Info

Stein means Stone, "um" in this context stands for "by" or "after". The song describes how the singer walls his beloved in so she won't be able to leave him. Pretty macabre.

Translation:

I have plans, big plans;
I'm building you a house;
every stone is one tear,
and you'll never move out again.

Yes I'm building you a little house,
It has no window, no door,
it will be dark inside,
No light comes through .*

Yes, I'm getting you a home,
and you'll be a part of it.

Stone by stone,
I'm walling you in.

Stone by stone,
I will be always near you.

With no clothes, no shoes,
you're watching me work,
with your feet in the cement,
you're adorning the foundation.

Outside there will be a garden,
and no one will hear you scream.

Stone by stone,
I'm walling you in.

Stone by stone,
I will be always near you.

What a knocking, what hammering,
outside it starts to dawn.
All nails stand straight,
while I ram them into body-wood.*

Stone by stone,
I'm walling you in.

Stone by stone,
I will be always near you.
