"Arma-Goddamn-Motherfuckin-Geddon" as written by and Chris Vrenna Brian Warner....
Death to the ladies first, then the gentlemen
All sorts of tax-free face-lift-abortion-nervous-break-dance
Satanic girls gone wild
Truly fuckin' suicidal

First, you try to fuck it.
Then, you try to eat it.
If it hasn't learned your name,
You'd better kill it before they see it
First, you try to fuck it
Then, you try to eat it
If it hasn't learned your name,
You'd better kill it before they see it

It's arma-goddamn-mother-fuckin-geddon
(Fuck! Eat! Kill! Now do it again!)
It's arma-goddamn-mother-fuckin-geddon
(Fuck! Eat! Kill! [etc])
First, you try to fuck it
Then, you try to eat it
If it hasn't learned your name
You'd better kill it before they see it
It's arma-goddamn-mother-fuckin-geddon

I've got a black eye of a soul
My morals in a hole
I wish I was still dead
But the TV said its just a tropical depression
Pointless intervention, legal separation
Call my dealer or my lawyer, "We've got a situation!"

First, you try to fuck it
Then, you try to eat it
If it hasn't learned your name,
You'd better kill it before they see it
First, you try to fuck it
Then, you try to eat it
If it hasn't learned your name,
You'd better kill it before they see it

It's arma-goddamn-mother-fuckin-geddon
(Fuck! Eat! Kill! Now do it again!)
It's arma-goddamn-mother-fuckin-geddon
(Fuck! Eat! Kill! [etc])
Is it the news?
Or is it the noose?
Results may vary,
Side effects are very
It's arma-goddamn-mother-fuckin-geddon

Arma-goddamn-mother-fuckin-geddon
Arma-goddamn-mother-fuckin-geddon
Arma-goddamn-mother-fuckin-geddon
Arma-goddamn-mother-fuckin-geddon

It's arma-goddamn-mother-fuckin-geddon
(Fuck! Eat! Kill! Then do it again!)
It's arma-goddamn-mother-fuckin-geddon
(Fuck! Eat! Kill! [etc])
Fuck the goddamn, the TV and the radio
And fuck making hits, I'm taking credit for the death toll
It's arma-goddamn-mother-fuckin-geddon
It's arma-goddamn-mother-fuckin-geddon
It's arma-goddamn-mother-fuckin-geddon

    Song MeaningLet's have a shot at a stanza.

    "first you try to fuck it
    then you try to eat
    if it hasn't learned your name
    you better kill him before they see it." - Referring to abortion and the lengths teenagers will go to keep their pregnancy/baby a secret. "they" being the parents or community, "him" the baby, the "fuck" and "eat" are just examples of crazy things someone might do to kill the baby, like if the woman is pregnant you were to have extremely violent intercourse in the hopes that the fetus is destroyed. "if it hasn't learned your name you better kill him before they see it" referring to the correct time to abort a fetus, which is before the first trimester or so, saying that if the baby is still young "hasn't learned your name" you better kill it before people notice because it's such a taboo.

    My OpinionI was thinking, following the whole idea of the censorship on radio and television ect and LadySkyfire idea of media helping to bring the end of the earth, when the song is censored, it turns into Armageddon, which would then prove his point. I liked to think that he purposely named it arma-goddamn-motherfuckin-geddon and filled it with curses so that it may get his point across.

    My InterpretationFor starters, I consider myself to be very bad at interpreting songs, so if this seems very off don't be a hater.

    It seems to me like the song is about the war between "bad influences" and the people who fight against them, such as rock music and KISS who were protested by Christians and parent groups and whatnot, or Manson himself being protested by religious groups. The name is Arma...Geddon, a reference to the final battle between God and Satan, so this fits.

    "First you try to fuck it, then you try to eat it, if it hasn't learned your name, you better kill it before they see it"

    This seems to be setting up the imagery for abortion, but I don't think it's direcly referring to abortion. "First you try to fuck it" is like when protestors attempt to make what they're protesting against (like Manson) look horrible and try to influence people against it. "Then you try to eat it" could be how religious people use the existence of bad influences like Manson to rally people to their own cause. They're "eating it" to nourish themselves, or protesting against it to help their own cause. "If it hasn't learned your name, you better kill it before they see it" refers to when the bad influence fights back. It's like saying that you'd better totally discredit it and influence people against it before it speaks back and influences people towards its side, much like Manson has done with his fans.

    "On the news, or is it in the noose" is like, "Are you really killing what your protesting against, or just putting it on the news and helping it become more famous and attract more fans?", which Manson has referred to before.

    Other lryics in the song, for example "Satan girls gone wild, truly fuckin' suicidal" are saying what this Armageddon is, or is causing. Its what these bad influences are accused of causing, or maybe it's the armageddon itself thats causing it

    "I want my lawyer, we've got a situation" could be referring to how people have attempted to take legal action against him, like being arrested for lewd conduct on stage, or people trying to get his concerts banned.

    Overall, I think the song is describing the war between "good", like the religious and family-values people, and "evil", like rock-and-roll musicians and artists who go against "good". This is evidenced in the song title. The fact that its name Arma-Goddamn-Motherfuckin-geddon is stating that it's not the real armageddon (the war between God and Satan), but a man-made, contrived war between different influences.

    If you think I'm way off and don't have a clue, then you can think that.

    General Commenti think hes saying we have reached amageddon and we dont even realize.
    -the way we treat things now adays is just how the song says, first you try to fuck it then you try to eat it.....

    Its just the cycle we go through now fuck eat kill now do it again. This is the armegeddon brought out by the media and commercialism., Sex is everywhere and that what we live in. Everytjing is about style or being sexy (fuck) the glutuny thats in america how everything is obiese and the food around us is soo commercialized and mass produced (eat) then we kill for entertainment. violence is what get from the media they just find stories of small violent grotesque things and put them on blast over and over again so we get the gory details. (kill) and then we do it again...

    In the last few lines he says hes taking credit for the death toll, he means when someone dies and they put it on the news they need to blame someone so he is such an easy scapegoat but in reality the death is made into fashion by the news and the news it what promotes the killings and kidnappeings.

    Fuck the machine that is the media. what they once considered grotesque or too sexy 15 years ago is like softcore for what they show on tv now adays, and they blame the video games and the music but you cant turn on the news without seeing something of a little kid shoved in a well, or a some one getting shot and raped.

    General CommentI'm pretty sure this song is mocking sensationalism in the media.

    The title (sans language) is Arma-geddon, the end of the world. He's being ironic, pointing out how the media always blows things out of proportion, making everything that happens seem like its the end of the world. Conversely, he might be saying that the corrupt media might help bring about the end of the world. Probably a bit of both.

    Further evidence is in the lyrics:

    'Forcery, taxes, facelifts, abortion, nervous breakdance, satanic girls gone wild';
    -all things you might hear about in infomercials or on CNN

    'Now the TV set’s a sharp and cold depression';
    -that's self explanitory, I think

    'Pointless intervention, illegal separation';
    -the sort of mind-numbing white trash stuff you see on the talkshows

    'I want my lawyer, "we’ve got a situation"'
    -think FCC and other forms of censorship, controling the content of what can and can't watch.

    'On the news, or is it the noose?';
    -to say the news is used as a means of control through fear, and this also goes back to what Manson said about the Columbine shootings - the media gave those boys exactly what they wanted (fame) by plastering their faces all over the tv.

    'The same results may vary, Side effects all vary';
    -word play to mock the commercials pushing prescription drugs that saturate the airwaves

    'Fuck the goddamned TV and the radio';
    -he's saying FU to the mind numbing, mind controling media.

    'and fuck making hits, I’m taking credit for the death toll';
    -his claim that he's not going to be a part of the problem, but rather a part of the solution/revolution.

    'First you try to fuck it, Then you try to eat it'
    -when was the last time you saw an effective commerical without either sex or food in it?

    'If it hasn't learned your name, you better kill it before they see it'
    -I think this might have to do with censorship - if you see something on TV you don't like, kick up a fuss about it so that it gets censored, effectivey 'killing' it before, say, your children see it. He may even be refering to himself and his music. It also deals with secret shame - destroy what you're ashamed of before it gets out.


    So yeah, it's about the media.

    If you read "The Long Hard Road Out of Hell", he talks about his inspiration for 'Cake and Sodomy' being TV, and about a skit they did on stage, where a girl stuffed a pillow up her shirt to look pregnant - she was ironing a flag with a swastika on it while watching a flickering TV screen. Then she climbed up on the ironing board and pretended to give herself an abortion, then proceeded to wrap the 'fetus' in the Nazi flag and hold it reverently out to the TV screen. It was a metaphor for how parents sacrafice their children to the facist mind-fucking pseudo-babysitter that is television (those weren't his exact words, but it was something close). I'd say he might have it in for the media, just a little. Can you blame him?

    General CommentI don't know if Manson meant to do this, but it reminds me of Slipknot's album Mate. Feed. Kill. Repeat.

    Fuck = Mate
    Eat = Feed
    Kill = Kill
    Now do it again = Repeat

    I just found it weird....

    All sorts of tax, facelifts, abortion,
    Nervous pretense (?), Satanic girls gone wild,
    Truly fucking suicidal.

    You better kill it before they see it.

    Call my dealer, I want my lawyer,
    We've got a situation!

    Side effects are very...
