"Filth" is the sixth track on the 1993 release Refrigerator. It was planned to be officially released on the band's first studio album Portrait of an American Family but was replaced by "Wrapped in Plastic" instead.

The filth is a recurring theme in the concept of movie.

Lyrics[edit]

     You bite the tin foil they give you
     Your piano wire mind is detuned
     You are amused by your confusion
     Staple your face to mine if you're afraid to be alone
     I'll mail you razorblades for Christmas
     If you're so disgusted then leave the wicked way
     You are confused by your amusement
     The hypocrite will be the first to see the filth
     You want to look like me
     You want to look like. You want to live like me
     You want to live like me
     It's not the same, you don't mean a thing,
     you're just another stain
     This won't hurt...You should eat the shit you speak
     You know you are what you think
     Don't you try to touch me
     You're no different from what you see
     Don't you try to touch me
     You're just as filthy as filth can be
     Like a piñata you crack open
     Your candy guts cascade in rainbow
     You decay in your own containment
     The sweetest insides are all coated with their filth
     
     It's not the same, you don't mean a thing,
     you're just another stain
     You should eat the shit you speak
     You know you are what you think
     Don't you try to touch me
     You're no different than what you see
     Don't you try to touch me
     You're just as filthy as filth can be
