"Revenge" as written by and John T. Williams....
Pushed me off the dirty floor
You watched as my head hit the floor
You watched as I rolled round and round
You watched as I came tumbling down
You watched as I rolled down the stairs
You never wished me - fare thee well!
You watched as I got on my feet
I ran towards her and she started to plead, no!
Ain't got time for what you feel
You did it again
You did it again
You did it again and again and again, ho, ho!
Far below original sin
Far below the state I'm in
Far below malicious crimes
Far below her for the time
Far below
Far below
Far below is the place you'll go, ho!
Ain't got time for what you feel
You did it again
You did it again
You did it again and again and again, ho, ho!
Oh went through the window, quiet as a mouse
No sound was stirring throughout the house
I'd heard a noise that made me startle
But I kept on walking down the corridor
Yes the corridor
Yes the corridor
And there you were with a man once more, no!
Ain't got time for what you feel
You did it again
You did it again
You did it again and again and again
You did it again
You did it again
You did it again and again and again, ho, ho!

    General CommentMinistry probably at their best In my opinion. Some Ministry fans ive noticed are too proud to notice or accept they started a electronic/synth band.

    General CommentI think the meaning behind this song is relatively straight forward - about the protagonist being rejected by his lover for another man, persumably not for the first time

    General CommentApparently so was Al Jourgensen of Ministry himself, back in the day. According to legend, he hated having his debut album, "With Sympathy", made to sound so "technopop", blaming the producers (Ian Taylor & Vince Ely) as well as his label as the time (Arista Records). Jourgensen clearly never intended for Ministry to sound like "dance club music". Thus he kept recording on Wax Trax!, the main indepedent label for his hometown of Chicago's '80s indie scene. Another big act on that label was Front 242--Jourgensen and Luc Van Acker of Front 242 also collaborated on their own pet project, a band called The Revolting Cocks.
