"Milk Of Human Kindness" as written by and Fallon/sult/maines/gaster....
Fine swine, wish you were mine
Bite the apple of my eye
This little piggy never made it home

Helter skelter, run for shelter
Can't escape the boiling swelter
Beat you like the dog that you are

Oh, I could kill you if I wanted
Kill you with my own two hands
Oh, I'm so happy I could kill you
Kill you like a sacrificial lamb

Because you, you are nothing but an animal
With a branding iron on your back
A sight so obscene, a sight so absurd
So many ways to skin a cat

All cut up
All cut up

Everything tastes better now
My hands, these tools, the fatted cow
The swine, the wine, the coming feast
Your Jesus Christ has canine teeth

Fine swine, wish you were mine
Bite the apple of my eye
This little piggy never made it home

Helter skelter, run for shelter
Can't escape the boiling swelter
Beat you like the dog that you are

Because you, you are nothing but an animal
With a branding iron on your back
A sight so obscene, a sight so absurd
So many ways to skin a cat
All cut up
All cut up

Everything tastes better now
My hands, these tools, the fatted cow
The swine, the wine, the coming feast
Your Jesus Christ has canine teeth

    General CommentAnimal Cruelty? Whatever.
    I think the song is about sadism / sadomasochism and dehumanization. Lyrics in the song refer to domination, torture; 'I could kill you if I wanted; kill you with my own two hands' refers to him having absolute control of the subject's life.
    The phrase 'this little piggy never made it home', from the nursery rhyme ('this little piggy went to the market' etc.) is about sending a pig to the abattoir. It's like a psychopath's ravings, objectifying it's victim.

    General Commenti agree with mudkips, the song refers to control. Also it may be a reference to church, 'your Jesus Christ has canine teeth.' makes me think the the person controlling the 'subject' is getting ready for a sacrifice 'feast'

    a tool for a 'higher power' to control perhaps?

    General CommentI think that it is about child abuse.

    the lines

    "fine swine, wish you were mine
    bite the apple of my eye"

    means that the person knows that it is not his child and that he 'bites' what should be the apple of his eye.
