"Astonishing Panorama of the Endtimes" as written by and Brian/white Warner....
The boy's got a head like an atom bomb
Hang him from a cross like the number one son
And he's been waiting so long
To get it on.

The boy's 15 but he's 16 gauge
Wants to break out from his Jesus cage
He's already torn out the last page
It's the "latest rage"

Violence for the people
They always eat the hand that bleeds
Violence for the people
Give the kids what they need

Kill your god, Kill your god
Kill your TV
The boy's purified by the quitter gods
Burning up his cross like a revelation

And his glass jaw opens
Like a puppet head
This is what you should fear
You are what you should fear

    General CommentI think this song is about how people want you to be something your not, "this is what you should be" but Manson is saying "You are what you should be" and if your not the way other people want you to be, they alienate you form society. "Hang him on the cross like a number one son".

    "Boy's purified by the quitter gods" meaning people think if one doesn't believe in god their an unpure person, but the only thing that makes one pure is believing what one wants to believe.

    I think the lines "Kill your god, Kill your TV" mean people don't get thier ideas from themselves, then get them from the radio, television, the bible, and even though religion. Manson is simply saying "Kill everything that changes your mind to be unlike your own".

    General CommentAnyone know what he says after "Give the kids what they need" and before "Kill your god"? Sounds like "either"
    Which can mean that the following part is this:
    Violence for the people
    Give the kids what they need
    Either
    Kill your god, Kill your god
    or
    Kill your TV

    Another thing, how come this song wasn't already posted? And home come this song isn't on that one Marilyn Manson song interpretation site? o_O

    General CommentThis is the first Manson song I ever heard and its been my absolute favorite ever since. I think its about the state of the world today, kids use tv as a escape and violence is what they want after their parents abandon them and let tv raise them.

    General Commentif you manage to get a copy of both the version off last tour on earth, and off the celebrity deathmatch soundtrack... you'll notice the CD version says "silence for the people" whereas the LTOE version says "violence for the people"

    General Commentthe lines "kill your god and kill your tv" are both in the same sense. tv is a god. the media is a god that controls everyone. so to kill your god u have to first kill your tv. tv is a powerful thing.

    Wants to get out of his Jesus cage
    He's already torn out the last page
    It's the "latest rage"

    i think refers to wanting to get away from this bible ridden world. and the latest rage about how religion is some kind of fucking trend.
