"Better Of Two Evils" as written by and Stephen Bier Brian Warner....
Haters call me bitch
Call me fagot call me whitey
But I am something that you'll never be

(Hey)
I won't look prettier if I smile for the picture
Motherfuckers never liked me then and they
Sure won't like me now
Don't try to drag me down with your cliche
Your fake grin fits your faker face
But I find pleasure in your misery

Yeah
I will step on you on my way up
And I will step on you on my way back down
I will step on you on my way up
And I will step on you on my way back down
Haters call me bitch
Call fagot call me whitey
But I am something that you'll never be

(Hey)
Haters call me bitch
Call me faggot call me whitey
But I am something that you'll never be

(Hey)
I'll be your scapegoat, I'll be your saviour
I'm the better of two evils
I'm the better of two evils (yeah yeah yeah)
I want to hang all you cattle
With your velvet rope
Motherfuckers step up and get into
An orderly line.
I'll Show you how to make a muscle:
It takes less strength to grin than
It does to spit on all you
Paparazzi Nazis

Yeah
I will step on you on my way up
And I will step on you on my way back down
Haters call me bitch
Call me fagot call me whitey
But I am something that you'll never be

(Hey)
Haters call me bitch
Call me fagot call me whitey
But I am something that you'll never be

(Hey)
I'll be your scapegoat, I'll be your saviour
I'm the better of two evils
I'm the better of two evils (yeah yeah yeah)
Don't try to lead me to temptation
Don't try to lead me to temptation
Don't try to lead me to temptation
Don't try to lead me to temptation
I've been delivered and I already know the way
Haters call me bitch
Call me fagot call me whitey
But I am something that you'll never be

(Hey)
Haters call me bitch
Call me faggot call me whitey
But I am something that you'll never be

(Hey)
I'll be your scapegoat, I'll be your savior
I'm the better of two evils
I'm the better of two evils (yeah yeah yeah)

    My OpinionThis song is about Marilyn Manson saying if he's evil what is the media as they use him for a scapegoat for
    teenage suicide and other things, the begginging of the song only reflects to what people who dislike him
    think about him and how he will always be something no one else will never be, you can't hate Marilyn Manson
    for just being honest.

    General CommentI really like this song, it really seems to me that Marilyn is trying to say that he doesn't care what others think that he is bigger than them, bigger than their insults, bigger than everything that others can throw at him, a really kick ass song.

    General CommentChoaschrist... pretty good! Actually, this is my favorite song on th album because, I know I'm nothing like Marilyn Manson except for the fact that I am myself no matter what just like him, people call me bitch, faggot, nigger and stuff... I think one of the reason I love MM is because I love to see the face of people when I tell them I like Marilyn Manson and see their facial expressions... Just for teh fact that I'm half black and half white... (But only closed minded people see me for being black...)

    General CommentI enjoy this song because I think it points out that there is nothing good left in this world.. so you must then choose between to things that in their own rights are equally as bad he ( marilyn manson) represents one way and the other is the road more traveled

    General Commentwell manson is basicly saying (in his own way) when you spit on me, I vomit on you...not litterally. but I don't know...saying when you say bad things about me it just means you don't know me. "haters call me bitch call me faggot call me whiney...but I am something you can never be" says to me that manson means people are jealous of him because he is so awsomely talented.

    General Comment"I'll Show you how to make a muscle:
    It takes less strength to grin than
    It does to spit on all you
    Paparazzinazis"
    Amazing lyric.
    The way he plays with common sayings and words is amazing. Song is more a less a big "fuck you" to american media, enough said.

    General Commentschnookumsfromhell!!!! You are my own personal Jesus! We must be long lost twins...besides the fact that i am white...
    But I am the same way; I am just a casual dresser (the opposite of goth, etc.) and I love to see the remarks and expressions I see whenever I tell people I love MM! ha I love you.
