"King Kill 33°" is the eighteenth track on the 2000 release Holy Wood (In the Shadow of the Valley of Death). The song opens with a sound reminiscent of the buzzing of an insect's wings, followed by a blowing sound backed by Manson whispering "blame me," referring to the Columbine massacre.

Lyrics[edit]

    Is this what you wanted?
    This is what you get.
    Turned all your lives into this shit.
    You never accepted or treated me fair
    Blame me for what I believe and I wear.
    You fucked yourselves and you
    Raised these sheep
    The blue and the withered seeds you will reap.
    You never gave me a chance to be me
    Or even a fucking chance just to be.
    But I have to show you that you played a role
    And I will destroy you with one simple hole.
    The world that hates me has taken its toll
    But now I have finally taken control.
    You wanted so bad to make me this thing
    And I want you now to just kill the king...
    
    And I am not sorry, and I am not sorry
    This is what you deserve
    And I am not sorry, and I am not sorry
    This is what you deserve
    I am not sorry, and I am not sorry
    This is what you deserve
    
    King Kill 33
    King Kill 33
    King Kill 33
    King Kill 33

Trivia[edit]

  • A March 15, 2003 post made by Marilyn Manson on The Oracle section of MarilynManson.com ended with a line similar to the closing lyrics of "King Kill 33°", "And I am not sorry and I am not sorry... But I am disappointed."[1]
  • In the book Art That Kills by George Petros a handwritten note with the Holy Wood (In the Shadow of the Valley of Death) track listing on "King Kill 33°" was listed as "Gun Factory". Apparently, this was the song's working title.
  • "And I am not sorry, and I am not sorry This is what you deserve" This quote was used by Charles Manson in his essay.
  • This song is the most obvious reference to Freemasonry. The grade 33 is the highest degree that exists in this organization.
  • It is one of the few songs to be written in and recorded using the Eb Standard guitar tuning.
  • At the start of the Twins of Evil tour with Rob Zombie, this song began to be used live as a intro for "Antichrist Superstar", with both Manson and Twiggy performing vocals.
  • The song sounds similar to a Ministry song "Lava" released 5 years earlier on album Filth Pig.
