Songfacts®:

  • This was the first song Marilyn Manson ever wrote - he was 15 when he started it. The song is about how the world is filled with stereotypes; everyone thinks that they are perfect and everyone else is just crap. >>

  • Dan Gillespy from Courtenay BcA classic and groovy sounding metal song that would still freak people out.
  • Matt from Scone, AustraliaThe lyrics originate from public-access channels that Manson came across in the early days - smothered in the likes of preaching and pornography. Several versions of the song also existed over the years before the final product made its way onto a studio album.
  • Grayson from New Westminster, Bcso, you like cake, and you rape people from behind,
    im sorry but you really made a poor choice of words on this one
  • Cj from Hamden, Ctthis song really describes me
