"Message to Harry Manback" as written by Daniel Carey, Adam Jones, Justin Chancellor and Maynard James Keenan....
Figlio di puttana, sai che tu sei un pezzo di merda?
Hm? You think you're cool, right? Hm? Hm?
When you kicked out people out of your house
I tell you this, one of three Americans die of cancer,
You know? Asshole. You're gonna be one of those.
I don't have the courage
To kick your ass directly.
Don't have enough courage for that,
I could, you know.
You know you're gonna have another accident?
You know I'm involved with black magic?
Fuck you. Die. Bastard.
You think you're so cool, hm? Asshole.
And if I ever see your fucking face around,
In Europe or Italy,
Well I'll, that time I'm gonna kick your ass.
Fuck you. Fucking Americans, Yankee.
You're gonna die outta cancer, I promise.
Bang bang, deep pain
No one does what you did to me.
You wanna know something? Fuck you.
I want your balls smashed, eat shit. Bastard.
Pezzo di merda, figlio di puttana.
I hope somebody in your family dies soon.
Crepa, pezzo di merda, e vai
A sucare cazzi su un aereo!
(1) Son of a bitch, do you know you are a piece of shit?
(2) Piece of shit, son of a bitch.
(3) Die, piece of shit, and go suck dicks on a plane!

    General CommentAnd I quote:
    MESSAGE TO HARRY MANBACK
    Hotsy Menshot from Green Jelly (a jokemetal
    band in which Maynard debuted as
    one of the Three Little Pigs explains:
    “The voice on Message to Harry Manback
    is my old friend Francesco, (from Rome,
    Italy) who would come and live with me and
    my old roommate Jerry, off and on. I kicked
    him out after he stole some possessions
    from Jerry, and he called that night on the
    answering machine because he was afraid
    of me, and couldn’t threaten me to my face.
    He was 6’2” but only weighed 130 pounds
    and looked like Ichabod Crane from Sleepy
    Hollow. I could’ve broken him like a twig.
    He called back again the next morning, and
    that message was finally heard on Message
    to Harry Manback II on Salival. Anyway,
    everyone used to imitate it from my impression,
    even though they have never heard it.
    Years later, I found the tape and played it for
    Figlio di puttana, sai che tu sei un pezzo di
    merda?* Hm? You think you’re cool, right?
    Hm? When you kicked out people [out
    of] your house? I tell you this, one of three
    Americans die of cancer, you know? Asshole.
    You’re gonna be one of those.
    I don’t have the courage to kick your ass
    directly. Don’t have enough courage for
    that, I could, you know. You know you’re
    gonna have another accident? You know I’m
    involved with black magic? Fuck you! Die.
    Bastard!
    You think you’re so cool, hm? Asshole. And
    if I ever see your fucking face around, In
    Europe or Italy, Well I’ll — That time I’m
    gonna kick your ass.
    Fuck you! Fucking Americans, Yankee.
    You’re gonna die outta cancer, I promise.
    Deep pain... No one does what you did to
    me. You wanna know something? Fuck you!
    I want your balls smashed, eat shit! Bastard!
    Pezzo di merda, figlio di puttana.** I hope
    somebody in your family dies soon. Crepa,
    pezzo di merda, e vai a sucare cazzi su un
    aereo!***
    * Son of a bitch, do you know you’re a
    piece of shit?
    ** Piece of shit, son of a bitch.
    *** Die, piece of shit, and go suck dicks on a
    plane!
    Maynard, who by this point, was my roommate.
    Next thing I knew, a few edits, some
    piano ... viola! ... “Harry Manback” is a joke
    name from the famous comedian, Bill Hicks
    (deceased)”

    General CommentThis song is in collaboration with the other song on the album Die Eier Von Satan. It is trying to tell you to read in between the lines. In Message to Harry Manbeck, the man is very angry and is saying bad things, but to a person who did not know Italian, it would sound very romantic, even though the lyrics are vicious. Now in Die Eier Von Satan, the lyrics are merely are cookie recipe. But since it is in German, a very dark sounding language, the message sounds very satanic. The song is showing the difference between the two, and telling you to look deeper into the song, instead of just reading the lyrics and saying, “ ohh, that is such a bad song!”

    General CommentThis wasn't sent to Maynard's answering machine, it was a close friend of his after they got an obnoxious Italian guest drunk and then left him in a park. The name Harry Manback is an acronym for his friend's name which I cannot remember right now.

    General CommentHey bob, did you look at that site at all? Do you realize that perhaps the "to" is just an aknowalgement to "Harry"? I doubt that I'm a god, but I'm pretty sure that you're a retard nevertheless...
