Lyrics[edit]

    (Some Bitch):
    I want to know um... why it is that all of you
    Seem to have Satanic signs all over you and what is that make...
    Does this music cause you to do what you do?
    
    (Marilyn Manson): 
    Is that directed at us or the parents?
    
    (Donahue): 
    That's funny... Twiggy
    
    (Marilyn Manson): 
    Does the music cause us to do what we do?
    
    (Donahue): 
    That's your little tape recorder... okay
    
    (Marilyn Manson): 
    We cause the music to do what it does... I think
    I think moshing is a sign of what Christians would call uh... the Apocalypse
    ...the Apocalypse
    ...the Apocalypse
    ...the Apocalypse
    ...the Apocalypse
    ...the Apocalypse
    ...the Apocalypse
