Rammstein was a cult German metal band formed in 1994 when winning a competition in Berlin. East German guitarist Richard Z. Kruspe escaped to West Berlin after the wall fell in 1989 and teamed up with Till Lindemann (lead vocals). Lindemann became the impressive frontman leading the band to be tagged as the inspiration for the New German Hardness movement of the nineties. They received international notoriety for their song and video Amerika. They were dubbed Kraftwerk on Steroids. Judge for yourselves.

Rammstein took german in the foreground, their success was too much of an explosion to let people not minding what their lyrics are all about, since they have a militaristic image as a band... This song comes to clear things up for accusations for being right-wing. The chorus repeats the word "left", stating the obvious.

I do not speak German, alghough it's easy to comprehend what this is about, if you take a look on the video clip of the song. What I'd like to leave here is a comment of the lyrics' composer : "..It's about how easy is for homosexual men to come close to each other, as we heterosexual men, have to do all kinds of crap to impress to girls"
