Did anyone else think of Dorothy Parker's poem, Resume, after hearing "a gun's cliche and a razor too" :

Razors pain you;
Rivers are damp;
Acids stain you;
And drugs cause cramp.
Guns arenít lawful;
Nooses give;
Gas smells awful;
You might as well live.

Also, Vlad the Impaler as partial inspiration to the backdrop with all of the crosses:

Yes, I thought of that too briefly, when I first heard the lyrics. Then I chose not to dissect them too much.

Yes, it's the rarest of things for Manson's lyrics to be dissected! ;)
