"Revelation #9" is a soundscape and b-side of the 1994 album Portrait of an American Family. It was released officially on the "Get Your Gunn" single in 1994 and to date it stands as the song with the longest run time in the band's catalogue. (however, since the track is simply a sound experiment technically the longest original song is I Want to Kill You Like They Do in the Movies, ignoring any remixes or covers that may be longer)

The lines "Don't tell your momma that I brought you here / 'cause there ain't no going back now" was sometimes used as an intro to "Dope Hat" during the Self Destruct tour and Portrait of an American Family tour. During the latter sometimes the entire track would be played as an introduction to the show as well. (Example).

Part of the song includes parts of the track May Cause Discoloration of the Urine or Feces from the EP Smells Like Children.

This song's title and music inspired by the Beatles' song "Revolution 9".

About the song[edit]

In a December 4, 1995 interview with The Gaston Gazette, Madonna Wayne Gacy was questioned about the song:

The Gaston Gazette: "How much stuff on "Revelation #9" is backwards?"
Madonna Wayne Gacy: "Well, there are 13 exact tracks on "Revelation #9", it consists of 13 tracks in which at least 6 are reversed."
The Gaston Gazette: "When we played it backwards, we heard things like 'Welcome to the other side'."
Madonna Wayne Gacy: "Oh yeah, there is all kinds of fan stuff on there, it's playable in any direction. It is equally playable in any direction. It has an equal number of tracks in each direction."

Lyrics[edit]

    are you listening?
    are you listening to me?
    are you listening to me?
    we are our own wicked gods
    with little "g"'s and big dicks
    constantly inflicting a slow demise
    sadistic stick it to my ribs
    i'll spread me open
    we try to die
    are all your infants in abortion cribs
    we run like roaches
    i know your poison in our space we'll...lie
    to an obscene god we will dance and spit you hear boy?
    don't tell your momma that i brought you here
    you're on the other side now
    there ain't no going back now
    don't tell your momma that i brought you here boy!
    'cause there ain't no going back
    don't tell your momma that i brought you here stick me to my ribs
    'cause there ain't no going back now
    don't tell your momma that i brought you here we try to die
    i'll spread me open
    are all your infants in abortion cribs?
    we run like roaches
    i know your poison in our space we'll lie
    don't tell your momma that i brought you here
    'cause there ain't no going back now
    don't tell your momma
    don't you tell your momma! don't you tell your momma!
    don't you tell your momma! don't you tell your momma!
    Don't you tell your momma! don't you tell your momma!
    jesus loves the little children, all the children of the world
    until on one day they ain't precious and innocent any more
    jesus loves the little children of the world
    jesus loves the little children, all the children of the world
    until on one day they ain't precious and innocent any more
    jesus loves the little children of the world
    all the christian soldiers marching in the cold...
    wear the cross of jesus while marching on and on...
    don't you tell your momma that i came here and i put this in you!
    don't you tell your momma! don't you tell your momma! don't you!
    jesus loves the little children, all the children of the world
    until on one day they ain't precious and innocent any more
    jesus loves the little children of the world
    there's no earthly way of knowing which direction we are going
    there's no knowing where we're going or which way the wind is blowing
    is it raining? is it snowing? is a hurricane a-blowing?
    not a speck of light is showing so the danger must be growing
    hey jew, let me thank you for wasting our time! fuck your time! asshole!
    fuck your shit, you fucking... shit! fucking ho! fucking ho! come on, rape her!

    goddamn millionaire! goddamn millionaire!
    son of a bitch!
    don't you tell your momma i brought you here!
    don't you tell your momma! don't you tell!
    don't you tell your momma i brought you here!
    if you call 407-997-9437...
    if you call 407-997-9437...
