"The Fall Of Adam" as written by and Brian/white Warner....
The Abraham Lincoln town cars
Arrive to dispose of our king and queen
They orchestrated dramatic new scenes
For Celebritarian needs

When one world ends
Something else begins
But without a scream
Just a whisper because we
Just start it over again

Do you love your guns?
Your god and your government?
Let me hear you
Hey
Do you love your guns?
Do you love your god and your government?
Let me hear you goddamn it
Hey
Do you love your guns?
And your god and your government?
Let me hear you
Hey
Your mother?
And your father?
And your baby?
Goddamn it let me hear you
Hey
Do you love your guns?
I want your mothers and your fathers
To hear you say it
Hey
Every single one of you motherfuckers
Let me hear it from you
Hey
Do you love your guns?
And your god and your government?
Hey
I want to hear it from everyone
I want to hear you say you want a gun
Let me hear it
Hey

    General Commentgreat song. MM never ceases to impress me. but there's a whole chunk of the song missing,
    the ending spoken part

    Do you love your guns?
    Your god and your government?
    Let me hear you
    Hey
    Do you love your guns?
    Do you love your god and your government?
    Let me hear you goddamn it
    Hey
    Do you love your guns?
    And your god and your government?
    Let me hear you
    Hey
    Your mother?
    And your father?
    And your baby?
    Goddamn it let me hear you
    Hey
    Do you love your guns?
    I want your mothers and your fathers
    To hear you say it
    Hey
    Every single one of you motherfuckers
    Let me hear it from you
    Hey
    Do you love your guns?
    And your god and your government?
    Hey
    I wanna hear it from everyone
    I wanna hear you say you want a gun
    Let me hear it
    Hey

    General CommentI think "The Fall of Adam" refers to the end of the world. I think Manson is using "Adam" and "Abraham Lincon" to represent the world as a whole, and how Adam, from the bible, was banned from paradise, and how Lincon was assasinated, both people came to an end, as will the world.

    Also the second verse - "When one world ends something else begins, but without a scream. Just a whisper because we just start it over again" probably refers to the end of the world, and how something new will evolve from the nothingness, as it did in the beginning, and what will come is chaos or "King Kill 33"

    General CommentThe Fall of Adam represents Adam in Eden. He sought something he wasn't supposed to have, and he fell for it. Adam is an example of Man. Man has sought things out of it's grasp, and we will fall because of it.

    General CommentAlso-- 33 degrees latitude is the location where JFK, the second christ, was killed. it has significant meaning in several other areas, too, but I can't remember them off the top of my head.

    General CommentThere were other lines to this song, I cannot remember them, but I think how it shows that Adam finally gave in to socitey and started handing out guns. I think this ties in with Kill King 33 as in Kill King, he is talking about destroying himself. The line that really points this out is, "I have finally taken control" I think it means he is giving up his rebellion and will kill himself.

    General Commentinspiring song, correctly followed by King Kill o33. Armageddon will introduce fear and then chaos, the stages every one goes through!

    General Commentwell, all I have to say is that I love the sort of (how I describe it) Riot effect after the *song* part of it...you know, when he is yelling...kind of like starting a riot!

    General CommentThe first paragraph reminds me of how people are making money off of others peoples misery and death (can you say 911 and the movie) the only thing they do is make people that died be over glorified by using well know actors and actrises but I think they should make their own movies and not copy some one elses life. How ever I belive that the abraham lincoln town cars only remind you of how poeple have glorafied his death when you should be thinking kennedy since he was the one riding the Abraham lincoln town car on the day of his assasination But it kind of sounds like he is surprised that they havent made a movie about his death (at least as far as I know)

    General CommentThis is all part of the Holy Wood story. Adam is the protagonist. coma white is this girl who has a major role and there's also a "President Dead" and a "Valentine" (presidents main man). check out mansonusa.com
