Organ Grinder

Album: Portrait Of An American Family (1994)

Songfacts®:

  • This song's lyrics are centered on how Manson is perceived by others and their perceptions fueling him to be what he is - the challenger of their views and thoughts. It also contains multiple audio excerpts of the Child Catcher from the film Chitty Chitty Bang Bang as a clever way of communicating to those he is challenging his overall message throughout the duration of this piece. >>
