  • Lyrics
  • 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. >>

  • At the beginning of this song is a clip from Marlon Brando in the movie Last Tango in Paris: "Go on, smile you c--t."

  • 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
