Rammstein just released “Radio,” the second single from their upcoming seventh studio album. The track’s lyrics go back in time when music lovers would cling to their radios and let themselves be swept away by music as it was being spun.

Fans old enough to remember when “Du Hast” came out will relate to this song. Till Lindemann sings about the “wanderlust” of putting your head next to the radio for a couple hours. Lindemann also discusses “forbidden” songs, possibly referencing Germany’s strict censorship when the country was still divided by East and West.

The English lyrics for “Radio” have been posted to Genius, so you can check them out below:

[Verse 1]
We were not allowed to belong
See, talk or hear nothing
But every night for an hour or two
Am I gone from this world
Every night a bit happy
My ear very close to the world receiver

[Refrain]
Radio, my radio
I let myself suck into the ether
My ears become eyes
Radio, my radio
So I hear what I do not see
Silence secretly wanderlust

[Verse 2]
We were not allowed to belong
See, talk or disturb nothing
Every body of song was forbidden
So dangerous foreign notes
But every night a little happy
My ear very close to the world receiver

[Refrain]
Radio, my radio
I let myself suck into the ether
My ears become eyes
Radio, my radio (my radio)
So I hear what I do not see
Silence secretly wanderlust

[Bridge]
Every night I secretly climbed
On the back of the music
Put the ears to the wings
Sing quietly into the hands
Every night and again I fly
Just away with the music
Float through bright rooms
No borders, no fences

[Interlude]
Radio, radio
Radio, radio

[Refrain]
Radio, my radio (my radio)
I let myself suck into the ether
My ears become eyes
Radio, my radio (my radio)
So I hear what I do not see
Silence secretly wanderlust
