"Are You the Rabbit?" as written by Brian Warner and Tim Skold....
I'm a kickstand in your mouth
And I'm the tongue slamming on the brakes
Pull the choke in, pull the choke in
As hard as it will take
All your pictures are getting dirty
Don't want anyone else's hand on my gears
And I'll choke on all the diamonds
Like a vulture, on your face

[Chorus:]
So ask yourself before you get in
Know insurance won't cover this
Are you the rabbit or the headlight?
And is there room in your life
For one more breakdown?

You can't escape, can't escape
All your demons, all you demons
Watch out, watch out for your lovers

Faster, faster, faster, faster, faster, faster
I'm late, I'm late
The hands I'm my clock are starting to shake
We're on the line between the devil's tits
We've been driving on E
I'm gonna to be wanted for this crime
Or at least "you're wanted," she'll say

[Chorus]

An unmarked car, can't remember where I parked you
But I love you, can't afford you; take a cab to funeral
Faster, faster, faster, faster, faster, faster
I'm late, I'm late
The hands I'm my clock are starting to shake

You can't escape, can't escape
All your demons, all you demons
Watch out, watch out for your lovers

[Chorus]

    Song Meaningi think the meaning of this song is how gradual life a death can be. the rabbit or the headlights part shows how you can be the victim or accused.

    General CommentLol, this title really caught my attention.

    Are you the rabbit
    Or the headlight

    I suppose it's around that phrase "like a rabbit caught in the headlights" - are you going to be killed, or be the killer.

    Hard to interpret without having heard how he sings it.

    General Comment"A rabbit caught in the headlights?" lol It's definitely " a deer caught in the headlights."

    I think he got the rabbit from the whole "Alice in Wonderland" theme.

    General CommentWell Its IS based around the Alice In Wonderland concept, and just seems like a really hidden song that I have no meanin too YET... Although it is great, and very awesome to listen to.

    General CommentUnholyNight, actually it's both. In Europe though, rabbit is what's more commonly used and here in the US we say deer.

    As for the meaning, I'd say it fits with the "are you the killer or the killed?"

    General Commenti kind of see this track as an up-beat follow-up to "Just a car crash away" i dunno why.

    General CommentI would say it is are you with me or against me? Are you in this with me or are you staying outside? Either way it is going to be dangerous, but if you're the rabbit you know who wins.

    General Commentthis song just has so much energy. I love the allusions to driving! The rabbit thing is not only the "rabbit in the headlights" concept but also obviously connected to Alice in Wonderland. "Faster, faster... I'm late I'm late" remember how the white rabbit is always worried that he's late? It's just so relatable. Come on how many time have you forgotten where you parked your car? "I love you, can't afford you. I'll take a cab to the funeral." It just really hit me. I love cars and I love Marilyn Manson!
