"Are You the Rabbit?" is the eighth track from the 2007 release Eat Me, Drink Me.

Music details[edit]

A potential live favorite, rhythm driven metal harking back to the The Golden Age of Grotesque as opposed to the other tracks that are closer to Mechanical Animals in sound (perhaps unsurprisingly given that the albums both have the same mixer, Sean Beavan). Several sections of "Are You the Rabbit?" also seem to mirror the musical structure of the Danzig song "She Rides".

Lyrics[edit]

    I'm a kick stand in your mouth
    and I'm the tongue slamming on the brakes
    pull the choke in
    pull the choke in
    as hard as it will take.
    All your pictures are getting dirty
    I don't want anyone else's 
    hand on my gears
    And I'll choke on
    all the diamonds
    like a vulture on your face
    
    So ask yourself before you get in
    I know the insurance won't cover this
    Are you the rabbit
    or the headlight
    and is there
    room in your life for one more breakdown?
    
    You can't escape
    Can't escape
    all your demons
    All you demons
    "Watch out, watch out
    for your lovers"
    
    Faster, faster
    faster-faster-faster
    faster-faster-faster
    I'm late, I'm late
    And the hands on my clock
    are starting to shake
    We're on the line between
    the devil's tits
    and we've been driving on E.
    I'm going to be wanted for this crime
    "Well, at least you’re wanted"
    She'll say
    
    So ask yourself before you get in
    I know the insurance won't cover this
    Are you the rabbit
    or the headlight
    and is there
    room in your life for one more breakdown?
    
    You are an unmarked car
    I can't remember where I parked you
    but I love you
    can't afford you
    I'll take a cab to the funeral.
    Faster, faster, faster-faster-faster
    Faster-faster-faster
    I'm late, I'm late
    And the hands on my clock
    are starting to shake.
    
    You can't escape
    Can't escape
    all your demons
    All you demons
    "Watch out, watch out
    for your lovers"
    
    So ask yourself before you get in
    I know the insurance won't cover this
    Are you the rabbit
    or the headlight
    and is there
    room in your life for one more breakdown?

Trivia[edit]

  • The lines "I am a kickstand in your mouth" and "The insurance won't cover this" were first used in the vocal track of the short film Doppelherz, which was recorded on April 1, 2002. They were reworked as "I'm a kick stand in your mouth" and "I know the insurance won't cover this" respectively.
  • The song was initially listed on Marilyn Manson's website as "Are You the Rabbi?". When attention was drawn to this humorous typo the title was changed to the correct "Are You the Rabbit?".
