"Little Horn" is the fifth track on the 1996 release Antichrist Superstar. The song is based on a dream Marilyn Manson had of an apocalyptic future in Fort Lauderdale where most of the human race had been turned into zombies for the entertainment of a small elite. There was a strip club where they had reanimated female corpses and made them dance naked in cages made of thick metal bars. Their flesh was covered in boils and gnarled veins, and their hair was falling out in clumps. Their jaws had been wired shut so that they wouldn't bite off the penises of the men around them masturbating. The dream was the beginning of the concept for the Antichrist Superstar album.

Lyrics[edit]

   there's an apple in the pussy mouth
   now I am the dinner whore
   there's a tumor in the t.v. mouth
   burn it out before it grows
   someone better get the dog to kick, jaws wired shut to
   save the dick
   out of the bottomless pit comes the little horn
   "little horn is born"
   the world spreads its legs for another star
   world shows its face for another scar
   dead will dance for what is left
   the worms will wait with bated breath
   "your blind have now become my deaf"
   so says this little horn
   "save yourself from this..."
   the world spreads its legs for another star
   world shows its face for another scar
   everyone will suffer now...
   "you can't save yourself..."
   the world spreads its legs for another star
   world shows its face for another scar

Trivia[edit]

  • At the beginning of the "Disposable Teens" music video, Manson emerges from the water possibly portraying the Little Horn. In the Bible, the Book of Daniel references a "little horn": "He arose from the water with large iron teeth that he used to smash his enemies with..." Manson's teeth in this scene appear to be iron-like.
  • The line "And the world spreads its legs for another star" had previously been implemented in the opening lines of the Patty Smith cover "Rock 'n' Roll Nigger".
