"Ka-Boom Ka-Boom" as written by and Brian/lowery Warner....
We're a death-marching band
Peter Pan off the wagon
Entertain but never trust anyone sober
We're tasteless but taste good
My (S)top Hat's top hat(ed)
Unsafe cheerleaders with
Porn poms and pipe bombs
I won't do it with you
I'll do it to you
I hope this hook gets caught in your mouth
I won't do it with you
I'll do it to you
Don't Say No
Just Say Now
I like a big car, cause
I'm a big star
I make a big rock and roll hits
I'd like to love you
but my heart is a sore
I am, I am, I am so yours
Ka-boom, ka-boom
Ka-boom, ka-boom
Ka-boom, ka-boom
I'd like to la la la la love you
Ka-boom, ka-boom
Ka-boom, ka-boom
Ka-boom, ka-boom
I'd like to la la la la love you
I'm the leader of the club
And I've shrugged off my mouse ears
We fly No-Class Dumbo jets
And drive harcore-vettes
We fight war with drugs
And our sex always formal
We wear lawsuits when
We get high high high

I won't do it with you
I'll do it to you
I hope this hook gets caught in your mouth
I won't do it with you
I'll do it to you
Don't Say No
Just Say Now
I like a big car, cause
I'm a big star
I make a big rock and roll hits
I'd like to love you
but my heart is a sore
I am, I am, I am so yours
Ka-boom, ka-boom
Ka-boom, ka-boom
Ka-boom, ka-boom
I'd like to la la la la love you
Ka-boom, ka-boom
Ka-boom, ka-boom
Ka-boom, ka-boom
I'd like to la la la la love you
"Inhale, exhale, let's all hail"
It's a depraved new world
"Inhale, exhale, let's all hail"
It's a depraved new world
After all
I like a big car, cause
I'm a big star
I make a big rock and roll hits
I'd like to love you
but my heart is a sore
I am, I am, I am so yours
I am a big car and
I'm a strip bar
You call it fake,
I call it, "good as it gets."
Nothing in this world is for real
Except you are for me and
I am so yours
Ka-boom ka-boom

    Despite whatever that above line may mean, it helped me through a lot of tough times (Like when I was balancing on the edge of Anorexia) and it still helps me today. I sort of repeat it in my head, and it helps me eat...I'm fucked I know.

    Amazing song, and although nowhere near as good as Antichrist Superstar or Mechanical Animals, sitll an absolutely amazing album.

    General CommentThis song was played at a club as was at in Philly when I met my ex girl friend, it will always stick with me...anyway.

    Seems to be about fame and such again, as well as alot of "you sold out" type feelings people have towards bands.
    Alot of the times artists like Manson, Bowe, and even The Beatles seem to me only make music for themselves and no one else. This is what I enjoy about them, but far to often when they say something that a fan might not like they always throw up "you sold out" to justify their opinions.
    Over all, I think he is saying "I don't give a fuck" about what people think, his music, his life.

    General CommentBefore Golden Age was released one critic wrote up an article saying the "album had no ka-boom" this song was then written by Manson and put on when released.
    I bet that shut him up!!!!!!

    General CommentDefinately my fav song on the CD and one of my Favorite Manson songs in General. Song is about the crooked side of fame, the media, popularity, social and economical status.

    More references in the song then just the ones about beings a "Big Star" and making hits. Plus there is the love refence in the hook "I am so yours" could be about a arrogant celeb and his spouse or could be about an arrogant Celeb giving themselves to their fans.

    General CommentHa this is my favorite "love" song. One of the best off the album.

    One thing I noticed while listening to my headphones in the hallways at school, with all the noise in the background, the undertrack of this song sounds a lot like Antichrist Superstar's.
