"Filthpig" as written by and Al/barker Jourgensen....
I start out you're in a daze and people start younger
In a thousand days and it's getting overexposed
Then someone asks, "How do you sleep at night?"
With the borrowed dreams from a broken past

You keep runnin' away don't matter how fast
or long you always wind up there
Another thousand pileups in the ugly name of morality
Fucking ugly, some creepy guy keeps asking

"How the fuck do you sleep at night?"
With a frozen dream and a borrowed hope that died
Filth pig, filth pig
I sleep with both eyes open

Filth pig, filth pig
I keep chasing this tail but the tail gets bigger go figure
A thousand... keep the fires and flames alive
So how the fuck do I dream at night?

With the memories of a borrowed death, the guilty tide
Filth pig, filth pig
He sleeps with both eyes open
Filth pig, filth pig

He sleeps all right because he's a
Filth pig

    General CommentI once called in to "hard rock" radio station and requested this song...they laughed and said "dude, we can't play ministry...call back after like midnight" I hung up the phone quietly, knowing this song was awesome and ministry forever rocks...

    General CommentIt's about some nasty bastard that has no morality.
    Rapists, Murderers, Pedifiles and the like.

    General CommentI would think so, considering the lyrics along with the cover art of the album (especially since this is the title track).

    General CommentThe album and song title are derived from when Jourgensen was called a "filthy pig" by an MP in the House of Parliament.
    This album is completely underrated; so much better than people make it out to be.

    General CommentI think it's
    "Well, I started out younger at things that people start younger at,
    In a thousand days and nights of getting over-exposed"

    "I keep chasing this tail but the tail gets bigger, go figure!
    A thousand more stories keeps the fires and flames alive"

    General CommentPerhaps it's about some kind of alienated corporate office worker... having trouble with colleagues, getting tired of his job, being massacred by routine and solitude.

    General CommentSince Al had a massive heroin addiction for a long time, I thought it was a song about dealing drugs.

    General CommentI disagree. The first three tracks are great, the next four suck, and the last three are meh. This is my favourite track from it though.
