Shaved women collaborators
Shaved women are they traitors?
Dead bodies all around
Screaming babies
Screaming babies
Screaming babies
Screaming babies
Shaved women instigators
Shaved women disco dancing
Shaved women shooting dope
Screaming babies
Screaming babies
Screaming babies
Screaming babies

In all our decadence people die
In all our decadence people die

    General CommentAfter the war, women in France who had slept with the nazis were humiliated in public by having their hair shaved. I think crass are implying that women who shave their legs, armpits, are collaborators with the enemy in the same way as the collaborators in vichy france. a rather extreme analogy, if that's the case. Trains are the trains to the death camps, the fate that symbolically awaits us if women continue to compromise their identity by conforming to whatever standards of femininity that (male)society demands of them.

    General CommentI think the line "in all our decadence people die" is pointing out that we use our time and money to look more sexually appealing (for instance, by shaving our legs and armpits) when there are other people who are starving in the street. With labor conditions the way they are in third world countries, people's deaths could even be the direct result of our decadence if we buy cosmetics from companies who have outsourced labor and not bothered to not treat their employees like shit.

    General CommentIf you've read JJ Ratter's autobiography, you'll know Glasgow Ranger and Kinked Moose's answers are both right!

    General Commenti like this song.

    to me this song is about shaved women talking about screaming babies to a woman who doesn't shave her legs. the shaved woman might be a traitor and is also ranting against abortion.

    oh but that's just me.

    General Commentto me, it means that even though "shaved women" are traitors to their own kind, by taking the razor to their skin--they are still people. they still dance and do drugs. i don't quite understand the screaming babies though. oh, and trains are awesome.

    General CommentI think this is about how women shave to be more sexually appealing, and using the Jack Kerouac school of thought 'Pretty girls make graves' (i.e. lust is the direct cause of birth, which is the direct cause of suffering and death) that would make sense based on the "In all our decadence people die" line.
    Just my interpretation...

    General CommentI agree with GlascowRanger and kinkedmoose, and I'm not saying I know everything. But to me, the screaming babies bit means that the act of shaving to make desirable can end up causing screaming babies (all babies scream). It causes it because they are desirable and have sex, and often babies scream when they are hungry or unprovided for, so it could mean that with desirability they lure men in, but the men don't stick around to care for the children.
