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...
- According to photos on his MySpace profile, former Marilyn Manson guitarist Scott Putesky, better known as Daisy Berkowitz, used an Ibanez Iceman to record "Wormboy".
- 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.
