    The world was stripped of its superficial surfaces.
    We don't intend to just eat the street
    The asphalt is the good meat.
    That's one of the best lines Manson's written since The Golden Age Of Grotesque. And again I'm reminded of "No Reflection":

    Is this constricting construction
    Or just streets with rusty signs
    Of something violent coming?
    Urban geography has been a theme in Manson of late. I don't think it has any meaning beyond creating a kind of mental landscape for the song to inhabit - it's impressionist, against expressionist, lyricism.

    And if you need it to have relevance, well...

    To revenge the misdeeds of the ruling class, there existed in the middle ages, in Germany, a secret tribunal, called the “Vehmgericht.” If a red cross was seen marked on a house, people knew that its owner was doomed by the “Vehm.”

    All the houses of Europe are now marked with the mysterious red cross.

    Just realized that both VEVO and iTunes have the lyrics of WKWYFL. But problem is they're not the same...

    VEVO: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2KWpuVrRek4


    Does anyone know what are the actual lyrics to WKWYFL (reliable/official source) ?

    I think its a mixture of both being about right. The sub low sounds more right, and it is two syllables for sure, not three. But also, the other line sounds more like 'my.' Can't wait to see the official lyrics already. But either way, I'm pretty sure both are not far off at all.

    Here's what I hear. Also, I condensed them like I did for TPE's lyrics. Its really a lot of repetition.
    Let's make something clear
    We're all recording this as it happens
    Those diamond bullets, storefront blood bands, splinters, and stained glass

    Don't need to move a single prayer bone
    Dodged bullets so loud and sub low
    Don't need to move a single prayer bone
    My death is still life

    So what's a nice place like this doing 'round people like us?

    We know where you fucking live
    We'll burn it down
    They won't even recognise your corpse

    The world was stripped of its superficial surfaces
    We don't intend to just eat the streets
    Asphalt is the good meat
    And we will sleep on the skin of its nightmares
    Time to just kill this crowd and scream as fucking loud

    FIRE, FIRE, FIRE, FIRE, FIRE AWAY

    I love the sound of shells hitting the ground, man
    I love it
    So many stars above our heads and yet we choose to starve. So many stones out there to turn and yet we choose to ignore. Thousands I wish to corrupt, their sons I seek to mislead. Damned forever be your dreams, I reject my destiny.

    Like the first of sins there is no one to blame, the earth grew wet on the seventh day. And we sit down for a feast of hate, we eat each other in a twist of fate.
