Lyrics[edit]

    (THE WOMEN OF THE WORLD LIST THEIR REASONS FOR FUCKING ME)
    I'd fuck you because you are famous
    I'd fuck you for your money
    I'd fuck you to control you
    I'd fuck you so someday I can have half of everything you own
    I'd fuck you to fuck you over
    I'd fuck you until I find someone better
    Then fuck you in secret
    I'd fuck you because I can't remember if I'd already fucked you before
    I'd fuck you out of boredom
    I'd fuck you because I can't feel anything anyways
    I'd fuck you to make the pain go away
    
    MY RESPONSE IS AS FOLLOWS:
    Fuck you because I loved you
    Fuck you for loving it too
    I don't need a reason to hate you the way I do
    Fuck you because I loved you
    Fuck you for loving it too
    I don't need a reason to hate you the way I do
    Hate you the way I do.
    
    (THE WOMEN OF THE WORLD LIST THEIR REASONS FOR FUCKING ME)
    I'd fuck you so I could feel something instead of nothing at all
    I'd fuck you because you are beautiful
    I'd fuck you because you are my nigger
    I'd fuck you because I am your whore
    I'd fuck you because you are a whore
    I'd fuck you for fun
    I'd fuck you for fun
    I'd fuck you because I can
    I'd fuck you so I have a place to stay
    I'd fuck you so you will protect me
    
    MY RESPONSE IS AS FOLLOWS:
    Fuck you because I loved you
    Fuck you for loving it too
    I don't need a reason to hate you the way I do
    Fuck you because I loved you
    Fuck you for loving it too
    I don't need a reason to hate you the way I do
    Hate you the way I do.
    
    I don't need a reason to hate you the way I do
    Hate you the way I do.

Trivia[edit]

  • Before the release of The Golden Age of Grotesque Manson referred to this song as "The Fuck Song", which was allegedly its working title.
  • "“Para-Noir” for example, which I think was one of the more strange experiments in music. I held an audition of several dozen girls, and I wanted to make a song that reflected the manufactured word “para-noir,” which was meant to represent excessive darkness and the paranoia of trust. I had girls come in and say whatever they wanted to. I wanted them to let out their deepest, darkest feelings on why they fuck people, whether that is metaphorically or literally. The only requirement was to begin the sentence in that way and they could say whatever they want. The song then became a photomontage of music. Every word in some cases is cut from a different person - maybe it was because of the breath or the way they accented certain consonants. It’s all of these people expressing these strange reasons and sometimes, in the fashion of directing a film, I had to motivate them. Sometimes the lights were out, sometimes the lights were on, sometimes they were naked, sometimes clothed, and sometimes some of them knew who I was, some of them had no idea. None of them were people I was friends with or even instructed that this was part of a song, just that it was part of an experiment. The most interesting responses are the ones that were compiled on the record." [1]
