there's an apple in the pussy mouth
now I am the dinner whore
there's a tumor in the t.v. mouth
burn it out before it grows
someone better get the dog to kick,
jaws wired shut to save the dick
out of the bottomless pit comes the little horn
"little horn is born"
the world spreads its legs for another star
world shows its face for another scar
dead will dance for what is left
the worms will wait with baited breath
"your blind have now become my deaf"
so says this little horn
"save yourself from this..."

    General CommentOk I did some researching on this. And I found this:

    Little Horn is a biblical refrence. David has a dream, in the dream he sees 4 beasts, the first 3 beasts are larger versions of animals he has seen before. But there's something different about the 4th beast, it is evil looking and eats all the small animals.

    On top of the 4th beasts head, are 10 horns. As David watches a new horn grows, a smaller horn he calls it Little Horn. The horn has eyes that seem evil.

    Later God tells David that the beasts all represent different empires of the world. The 4th beast will be evil, and be lead by 10 kings, represented by the 10 horns. But God never says anything about the last horn, the little horn that gives David nightmares.

    It is rumoured that the Little Horn is the anti-christ.

    General CommentOk. I've been researching the whole story from Antichrist Superstar, Mechanical Animals and Holy Wood, and I just got this album. This is what I found on Wikipedia:

    "The Rise and Fall of Little Horn

    Antichrist Superstar Shock logo.The characters in Antichrist Superstar are as follows:

    "The Worm": The main character.
    "The Superstar": A rock star the Worm used to worship.
    "Little Horn": The Antichrist.
    Cycle I - The Heirophant – The story begins with "Irresponsible Hate Anthem". It is most likely a concert of some sort that the Worm is attending. After the concert, the Worm gets to meet the Superstar of the band, who promptly tells the character to basically "fuck off" ("The Beautiful People"). The Worm doesn't care about life anymore ("Dried Up, Tied and Dead to the World"). The Superstar was most likely his only hero and the only person that he ever liked. "Tourniquet" could be a song about the Worm and the Superstar and how broken he is after being told off.

    Cycle II - Inauguration of the Worm – The Worm goes insane ("Little Horn"). Little Horn is said to be the Anti-Christ, and it is forming inside the Worm. The Worm is feeling of no importance anymore ("Cryptorchid"). The Worm is now starting to hate everything ("Wormboy"). Little Horn is growing more powerful inside of him. "Mister Superstar" contains the last words to the Superstar from the Worm before Little Horn appears. Empowered by Little Horn, the Worm kills the Superstar. "Angel with the Scabbed Wings", a song about poseurs, could be a metaphor for Little Horn posing as a human. The Worm and Little Horn then have a conversation about being an angel with scabbed wings ("Kinderfeld").

    Cycle III - Disintegrator Rising – In "Antichrist Superstar", Little Horn is out, and he's introducing himself to the world. Little Horn ravages Earth, destroying everything with the hate the Worm had growing inside him ("1996"). Nothing much is left on Earth except the Worm and Little Horn ("Minute of Decay"). In "The Reflecting God", The Worm realizes what has happened. Little Horn tells him what he had to do and now The Worm is regretting it. "Man That You Fear" marks the ending, in which The Worm realizes that Little Horn's destruction of the world did nothing but make him worse. The Worm now understands everything, but it doesn't matter anymore since he let Little Horn gain control and let him destroy the world. Now it feels like to the Worm that he is stuck in a dream."

    General CommentLmao Papa Roach thats funny, well no it's actually sad you would even compare Papa Roach with Marilyn Manson. And considering how much longer MM has been around than Papa Roach makes it even sadder.

    Anyhow, this song fits in with the rest of the album. I think it would have been better playing after Cryptochild than before it. It's about the boy growing up and wanting to be a rock star.

    General CommentThe song is based on a dream Marilyn Manson had of an apocalyptic future in Fort Lauderdale where most of the human race had been turned into zombies for the entertainment of a small elite. There was a strip club where they had reanimated female corpses and made them dance naked in cages made of thick metal bars. Their flesh was covered in boils and gnarled veins, and their hair was falling out in clumps. Their jaws had been wired shut so that they wouldn't bite off the penises of the men around them masturbating. The dream was the beginning of the concept for the Antichrist Superstar album.

    General CommentIn an interview with...I think it was Rolling Stone magazine, Manson said the lyrics were based on a dream he had where entertainment took presidence over all...I think it was late '96 or early to mid-'97 when he said that, not quite sure.
