Luci in the Sky with Demons

i'll spread me open
stuck to my ribs
are all your infants in abortion cribs
you run like roaches and
you try to die
i know your poison
in our space we'll lie

to an obscene god we will dance and spit
the skin is thin, in our beds we sit
we take off our rings and we kneel
our scabbed knees are so slow to heal

stretch a little boy hole for looking-glass people
i don't want to be me
i don't want to fear, no
mama's got a scarecrow
got to let the corn grow
a man can't always reap what he sows

cut, cut, cut in pantomime, mime, mime
i'll be your devil if you'll admit you're mine

leave yourself to be ultra-here
the chill of fall is always crawling near
spiders in the flowers never know their smell
the barbers here know secrets they will never tell

cut, cut, cut in pantomime, mime, mime
i'll be your devil if you'll admit you're mine

    General CommentHmm... perhaps "Looking Glass People" is a reference to the Sociology term "Looking Glass Self." Looking Glass Self means that people establish who they are and their actions by seeing their effect on other people. This fits in with how Manson was essentially a creation of our own society. Also kinds of fits with Manson's publicity stategy of doing whatever would probably shock people the most.
    That's what I think, anyway. :P

    General Comment"barbers know the secrets they will never tell" might be a greek mythology reference... King Midas was given donkey's ears and they only person who knew was his barber and he ended up accidently telling everyone... Of course I don't exactly believe that Manson would know this.

    General Commentthis is a demo from the spooky kids days
    alot of the lyrics were reused on different song on ACSS
    I always heard that among other things it's about people on acid
    also the cover of Another Brick In the Wall was done by a band called Class of 99
