Album: Antichrist Superstar (1996)
  • He lives inside my mouth
    And tells me what to say
    When he turns the trains
    On he makes it go away
    The hands are cracked and dirty and
    The nails are beetle wings
    When he turns the trains on he
    Unties all of the strings

    Tell me something beautiful
    Tell me something free
    Tell me something beautiful
    And I wish that I could be

    Then I got my wings and I never even knew it
    When I was a worm, thought I couldn't get through it

    Come, come
    Toys all smell like children
    And scab-knees will obey
    I'll just have to kneel on broomsticks
    Just to make it go away

    (the inauguration of the worm)

    Then I got my wings and I never even knew it,
    When I was a worm, thought I couldn't get through it

    Because today
    Is black
    Because there is no turning back
    Because your lies have watered me
    I have become the strongest weed

    The taste of metal
    Dis integrator
    Three holes upon the leather belt
    It's cut and swollen
    And the age is swollen
    There's no one here to save our self

    This is what you should fear
    You are what you should fear

    This is what you should fear
    You are what you should fear

    This is what you should fear
    You are what you should fear Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind

  • Cristian Manteen from Lyons Ga i love kinderfeld its a nice soft song like cryptorchid the whole album is good so lets just listion on yeah i listin to marilyn manson,s old songs even in 2020
  • Jezus from Mobile, Ali thought this song meant something like kids and fields cause "kinder", as in KINDERgarten and feld sounds like a suffix to the last name of s kike, lol. Jerry SeinFELD. but seriously, i thought it said kinderfield for the first couple of months i owned it. i didnt really like the song at first, but then i gave it a chance. all in all, i`d say it took me about 23 times for me to like this song. and surprisingly by then, it actually wasnt old.
  • Daivd from Aberdeen, NcThis song is the point in the album where the Antichrist Superstar character loses his mind and begins to be "reborn". Many different sides of his ego were fighting for control, but ultimately "The Disintegrator" won. "This is what you should fear, you are what you chould fear," is foreshadowing to the character's downfall, when his own hate eventually leads to his ruin in "The Reflecting God" and "Man That You Fear".
  • Freak from Biddoshit, Meumm yeah brian if you dont know what the song means then why are you listening to it.... you should have some idea of wat a song is about before listening to it
  • Dustin from West Bend, Wi"make him 'kneel on broomsticks' as a punishment, whatever that means."

    kneel on a broomstick once, you'll know very quickly
  • Andrew from Hamilton, CanadaKinderfeld does indeed mean "Field of Children". I think this may be a reference to the Frankfurt Kinderfeld in Germany, where 150 American children were buried between '66 and '86. To me, this song suggests that Adam (the main character in Manson's Antichrist Trilogy) was abused as a child, and as a result developed psychological problems that leave voices in his head telling him to do terrible things. And I don't think this song really belongs where it is positioned on the album- I think it takes place before.
  • Brian from Pittsburgh, PaKinderfeld means 'Field of Children' in German, or more literally 'Children field'...what does that mean?
  • Daisy from Dunedin, New ZealandKinderfeld is a truly beautiful song and I agree with Brian, it is VERY under-rated.

    I would also like to add that it was in fact Manson's grandmother, not the grandfather, that would punish Manson and his couisn by having them kneel on broomsticks. :-)
  • Brian from Paoli, InVery under-rated song, I dunno what it is about it, but I love this song.

    Also Mansons grandfather was abusive, and he used to make him 'kneel on broomsticks' as a punishment, whatever that means.

    Great great song, ties in with the entire album so well.

    "Because today is black, because there is no turning back, because your lies have watered me, I have become the strongest weed" Simply genius.
