"Filth" is the sixth track on the 1993 release Refrigerator. It was planned to be officially released on the band's first studio album Portrait of an American Family but was replaced by "Wrapped in Plastic" instead. The song deals with issues related to the John Waters film "Pink Flamingos" movie that Manson mentioned as inspiration in his early age, especially in "Portrait of an American Family" album. The filth is a recurring theme in the concept of movie.

You bite the tin foil they give you Your piano wire mind is detuned You are amused by your confusion Staple your face to mine if you're afraid to be alone I'll mail you razorblades for Christmas If you're so disgusted then leave the wicked way You are confused by your amusement The hypocrite will be the first to see the filth You want to look like me You want to look like. You want to live like me You want to live like me It's not the same, you don't mean a thing, you're just another stain This won't hurt...You should eat the shit you speak You know you are what you think Don't you try to touch me You're no different from what you see Don't you try to touch me You're just as filthy as filth can be Like a piñata you crack open Your candy guts cascade in rainbow You decay in your own containment The sweetest insides are all coated with their filth It's not the same, you don't mean a thing, you're just another stain You should eat the shit you speak You know you are what you think Don't you try to touch me You're no different than what you see Don't you try to touch me You're just as filthy as filth can be
