Zyclone B. Bathouse
A super place for cleansing ethnically
Train ride provided
Although the fare only sports the under class
As the train goes by, they'll turn away
Only doppler is effected not their hearts
With a "better them than me" and a "better off this way"

Ronald McDonald
Paint a happy face on a McMurderer
Same train, same station
This time the cars are corporate
Not fascist state
What is life, quality or quantity?
Since when does that get decided by majority?
And who's more decent one man or a dozen men?

    General CommentThis starts out describing a country destroying a group of people in theire bathhouse (Ala Nazi) Then it turns into today's Corporate business's comitting the murder now. I love the last lines...This song really makes you see what the Nazis did in Germany was disgusting and how all mass murder is digusting and it makes you see how sleazy corporations really are and it makes you really wonder who is truly more decent one man or a dozen men?

    General Comment"Zyclone B. Bathouse

    Zyclone B. is a gas that Hitler and his forces used to gas the Jews in WW2..often in big rooms where they herded the Jews in naked and then gassed them.

    "Train ride provided
    Although the fare only sports the under class "

    Trains were often used as transportation of Jews from camp to camp, etc. "under class" probably is where the point of view changes to that of a nazi..more in next section of song..

    "As the train goes by, they'll turn away
    Only doppler is effected not their hearts
    With a "better them than me" and a "better off this way" "

    Describing how the Nazi reacts to having to do this(this part was hard to describe unless you think of it as the point of view of the Nazi, possibly the one who made the order?)

    "Same train, same station
    This time the cars are corporate
    Not fascist state "

    Changed from past to present - Now the train station is owned by a corporate company(like amtrak or something maybe?) and is no longer in fascist control(not anymore Nazis)

    "And who's more decent one man or a dozen men?"
    I think that theres too many ways to see this to list.

    Well this is just what I see in the song, everyone tends to see things differently.

    General Commenti just watched 'Falling Down' with Michael Douglas.
    He goes in to an Army-Navy store where he meets this nazi skinhead who shows him an empty canister of Zyclone B and explains to him what it is.

    I head this song tons of times and never knew what Zyclone B was before

    great song by the way!

    ~in nazi terms it would be where you got on the train. And when you got on the train to go meet your death by Zyclone B.
    ~in corporate world, it would mean the station is their company and the train would be your buying their merchandise and then going on a train to get killed earlier
    something like that

    song kicks ass though.
