Lyrics[edit]

    when will you realize you're already there?
    so watered down-your feelings have turned to mud.
    "love everybody" is destroying the value of
    all hate has got me nowhere
    I know I'm slipping, I know I'm slipping, I know I'm slipping away
    oh no, it is everything they said it was
    oh no, I am all the things they said I was
    when you get to heaven you will wish you're in hell
    when will you realize, you're already here
    you'll thank us now that you have crossed over
    don't pick the scabs or you will never heal
    the world shudders as the worm gets its wings
    oh no, it is everything they said it was
    oh no, I am all the things they said I was
    then I got my wings and I never even knew it
    when I was a worm, thought I wouldn't get through it...

Trivia[edit]

  • The song features a passage containing the same lyrics as heard in "Kinderfeld": "then I got my wings and I never knew it/when I was the worm, thought I wouldn't get through it..."
  • According to Manson's autobiography, this song most incorporated Daisy Berkowitz's musical ideas.
