"Orgasmatron" as written by Michael Burston, Philip Campbell, Peter Gill and Ian Kilmister....
Oh!

I am the one, Orgasmatron
The outstretched grasping hand
My image is of agony
My servants rape the land
Obsequious and arrogant
Clandestine and vain
Two thousands years of misery
Of torture in my name
Hypocrisy made paramount
Paranoia the law
My name is called religion
Sadistic, sacred whore

I twist the truth, I rule the world
My crown is called deceit
I am the emperor of lies
You grovel at my feet
I rob you and I slaughter you
Your downfall is my gain
And still you play the sycophant
And revel in your pain
And all my promises are lies
All my love is hate
I am the politician
And I decide your fate

I march before a martyred world
An army for the fight
I speak of great heroic days
Of victory and might
I hold a banner drenched in blood
I urge you to be brave
I lead you to your destiny
I lead you to your grave
Your bones will build my palaces
Your eyes will stud my crown
For I am Mars, the God of War
And I will cut you down

    My OpinionMy view on this is that we're just shown an apocalyptic view of the epitome of human destruction.
    The first third is about religion, with its own brutality.
    The second part is about politics, with the deceit, control and power.
    And the third part is about war, fought for wrong leaders for example.

    These 3, religion, politics and war, are humanity's greatest murderers, and I suppose everybody can easily agree with this. You bring them together, and you've got mankind's destroyer.

    My two cents.

    General CommentI have no words to describe the greatness of the song. Also, it reminds me of George W. Bush. Lemmy, you are a fucking genius.

    General CommentIt's just their personification of powermadness, and a brilliant one for that. The way the music fits in with the lyrics and his groveling voice, it's haunting!

    General Commentjudging by the first verse, i think it's about religion and how it's nothing but deception from someone in a high place.

    General CommentLemmy has to be one of the best lyricists ever. Who else do you know that can use the words "obsequious", "clandestine" and "sycophant" in the same song?

    General CommentIt's absoluty a song that yells "UP AGAINST THE WALL MOTHERFUCKERS"...and probably a song that no leader will ever listen to!!...but...while reading the lyrics once more.....you know I see that "2000 years of misery..." and this may refer to the "obedience-thing" that all Christians have to suffer...and og course all the crimes commited in the name of "God"...and Church...Amen..huh!

    General CommentI've tried to look deep into the lyrics of this song, but there are so many possibilities and the internet doesn't really offer any explanations. Therefore, instead of making my head hurt, I take it like it is - with the cover art of the album as inspiration, the Orgasmatron is a giant train that'll fuck you up.
