"Hollywood Squares" as written by and Mike Patton Chris Steven Pennie....
Game over
Game over
You win
Game over
I win.
Game over
You win
Game over

The Sleigh bells are a-ringing, the children they are singing
The memories are fleeting, a little game of (Paper, Scissors, Rock)

Game over
Game over
You win
Game over
I win.
Game over
You win
Game over.

The wedding bells are ringing, the shotgun is a-singing
Now keep your fingers steady, a little game of {Paper, Scissors, Rock}

A lion tamer yelling, your first piano lesson
A 4-leaf contraceptive, we play a game of
(Paper, Scissors, Rock)

A sweaty palm reading, a lucky shot of whiskey
Now come and rub my belly, a little game of (Paper, Scissors, Rock)

O's and X's
Hollywood Squares
X's and O's
Bloody Tic-Tac-Toe

(Paper, Scissors, Rock)
(Paper, Scissors, Rock)
(Rock, We will rock you!)

(Hollywood Squares)
(Hollywood Squares)

Not in your song
I'm not your singer
Not in your poem
I'm not your stanza
I'm not a color in your rainbow
But now which team
Are you rooting for?

We're Hollywood Squares
We're going nowhere

Hollywood Squares
Going nowhere
Hollywood Squares
Going nowhere
Hollywood Squares
I'm an' 'X'
You're an 'O'

This is the end
The end.

    General CommentThe new stuff does not "suck" at all.

    The song is called Hollywood Squares. Go out and buy a real copy of the album and you would know this.

    General CommentCome to Daddy was the worst off of Irony is a Dead Scene. And this song is all about how everything is left to chance, though I can't decipher the rest.

    General CommentOK, first of all, I have to say that whoever this keith guy is obviously has no taste for artful expression. Miss Machine is the best thing to come out of New Jersey's collective sphincter. Period.

    Anyway, onto the meaning: anyone ever seen Wonder Showzen season one on MTV2? Episode 2 has a scene where Chauncey plays Paper-Rock-Scissors against God for the fate of the earth. That makes me think this song is about religion and the uselessness of prayer. God is the "lucky penny," "lion tamer," and "4-leaf contraceptive." Prayer is basically based on a fifty-fifty system of luck. No matter what superstition you choose, your prayers are going to be "answered" at about the same rate. Plus, prayer completely defies the so-called "divine plan." So really, prayer is "going nowhere."

    If you want more information on this stuff, listen to "You Are All Diseased" by George Carlin. Funny guy.

    General Commentgood god! they actually opened for AFI!!?!?!?!? Jesus that's sooooo wrong.

    Anyway, this song is about America's undying obsession with celebrity. From the magazine covers spewed across the checkout aisles of grocery stores to the constant gelam of them glossed on their Televison screens. But it works both ways, considering Celebrities are held at such a godly position, they crave to be brought down to human level. But when it comes down to it, we're all just Hollywood squares, dying to make it somewhere, dying to have our faces seen in the right or wrong places. But in reality, we're just going nowhere. THE END
