Lyrics[edit]

    And the world spreads its legs
    For another fuckin' star
    Cause i am the all-american antichrist
    I was made in america
    And america hates me for what i am
    I am your shit
    You should be ashamed of what you have eaten
    I'm a rock and roll nigger


    Baby was a black sheep
    Baby was a whore
    Baby's gotten big,
    And baby's getting bigger
    Baby got somethin'
    Baby want more
    Baby, baby, baby was a rock and roll nigger


    How do you like the world around you?
    Do you like what you see?
    How do you like the world around you?
    Ready to be...


    Outside of society
    Waiting for me
    Outside of society
    Is where i wanna be


    Baby was a black sheep
    Baby was a whore
    Baby got big,
    And baby's getting bigger
    Baby got a gun
    Got her finger on the trigger
    Baby, baby, baby was a rock and roll nigger


    Outside of society
    Waiting for me
    Outside of society
    Is where i wanna be


    Nigger, rock and roll nigger
    I'm a rock and roll nigger
    This is your world in which we grow,
    And we will grow to hate you
    We will grow to hate you
    We will grow, we will grow
    We will grow to hate you
    We will grow, we will grow
    We will grow to hate you


    1, 2, 3, 4


    I was lost in the valley of pleasure
    I was lost in the infinite sea
    I was lost and begging for pleasure
    And this world is waiting for me


    Jimi hendrix was a nigger
    Jesus christ and grandma, too
    Brian warner (what a nigger)
    Nigger, nigger, nigger, nigger, nigger


    Outside of society
    Waiting for me
    Outside of society
    Is where i wanna be


    Outside of society
    Waiting for me
    Outside of society
    Is where i wanna be
