The laughing dying culture pop
The famous moldy party hop

The laughing dying culture pop
The famous moldy party hop

Ultra ultra
Get me in there
Ultra ultra
Get me out (x4)

The laughing dying culture pop
The famous moldy party hop

The point of view the bleeding heart
The easily digested hurt

The psychotronic talking box
The mainstream antidepressant

The silly putty tinker toy
The mirror ball reflects below

The creepy crack head friend of mine
The homeless place he calls his thought
The silly putty tinker toy
The mirror ball reflects below
The grazing herd the lemming goat
The move toward the moving from
The winter home upon the hill
The summer shade a caving in

The psychotronic talking box
The mainstream antidepressant
The laughing dying culture pop
The famous moldy party hop
A fantasy the way it could
The shaping things a prostitute
A naked mix a magazine
A picture of us in a dream

The creepy crack head friend of mine
The homeless place he calls his thought
The silly putty tinker toy
The mirror ball reflects below
The grazing herd the lemming goat
The move toward the moving from
The winter home upon the hill
The summer shade a caving in
The psychotronic talking box
The mainstream antidepressant
The laughing dying culture pop
The famous moldy party hop

A fantasy the way it could
The shaping things a prostitute
A naked mix a magazine
A picture of us in a dream

Ultra ultra
Get me in there
Ultra ultra
Get me out (x4)

    My InterpretationSounds to me like the singer is feeling conflicted about their opinion of mainstream culture. They seem to look down on the popular and conventional ("The laughing dying culture pop"), especially television ("The psychotronic talking box \ The mainstream antidepressant"). However, the repeated "Ultra, ultra"* section makes it sounds like their disgust is at odds with a need to belong ("get me in there... get me out"). In the context of songwriting and music production, it could represent the conflicting desires for financial/critical success and artistic uniqueness and creativity, which definitely crops up elsewhere on this album (Cracker).

    *It's a very far stretch, but "Ultra" might be a reference to the KMFDM song of the same name. Industrial Metal has always sold better than the weirdness Ogre produces, and while KMFDM are small fry compared to NIN, they still saw a great deal of success about the same time Skinny Puppy fell apart.
