Lamb Of God

Album: Holy Wood (In The Shadow Of The Valley Of Death) (2000)
  • There was Christ in the metal shell
    There was blood on the pavement
    The camera will make you god
    That's how jack became sainted

    If you die when there's no one watching
    Then your ratings drop and your forgotten
    But But if they kill you on their T.V.
    You're a martyr and a lamb of god
    Nothing's gunna change
    Nothing's gunna change the world

    There was Lennon in the happy gun
    There were words on the pavement
    We were looking for the lamb of god
    We were looking for Mark David

    If you die when there's no one watching
    Then your ratings drop and your forgotten
    But if they kill you on their T.V.
    You're a martyr and a lamb of god

    Nothing's gunna change the world
    Nothing's gunna change
    Nothing's gunna change the world
    Nothing's gunna change the world

    It took three days for him to die
    The born again to buy the serial rights
    Lamb of god have mercy on us
    Lamb of god will you grant us

    Nothing's gunna change the world
    Nothing's gunna change
    Nothing's gunna change the world
    Nothing's gunna change
    Nothing's gunna change the world
    Nothing's gunna change
    Nothing's gunna change the world
    Nothing's gunna change the world

    If you die when there's no one watching
    Then your ratings drop and your forgotten
    But if they kill you on their T.V.
    You're a martyr and a lamb of god

    Nothing's gunna change the world

  • Maria Isabel from New London, CtQuite a few songs on the HolyWood album refer to people who were assassinated as well as the killers. References to Oswald and Boothe are mentioned repeatedly.
  • Cortney from Grand Junction, CoThis was the first manson song i heard and its the reason i have a love for him that is almost unnatural!lol,the lyrics are really meaningful and i just love this and every other manson song there is...
  • Bob from Wheaton, MiI think this song is about how some peoples deaths go unnoticed and they are forgotten and how some peoples(famous) deaths are noticed and they are made a hero or martyr . For over 2,000 years Jesus Christ death is remebered because he lives and rose again. I've noticed because he noticed me.
  • Tyler from Buffalo, NyI think this song is about how some peoples deaths go unnoticed and they are forgotten and how some peoples(famous) deaths are noticed and they are made a hero or martyr
  • Paul from Sunnyvale, CaI hope marilyn manson's not saying that john lennon is taken as hero just because he was suddenly murdered.
  • Kieran from Essex, Englandin accross the world it says 'nothings gonna change MY world' but in lamb of god it says 'nothings gonna change THE world'
    MANSON ROCKS!

  • Tanya from Rotterdam, Netherlands"There was Lennon and a happy gun" refers to John Lennon of course, but also to The Beatles-song "Happiness is a warm gun" (White Album)I would say.
