"You Know What You Are" as written by and Al/barker Jourgensen....
Don't try to reason
No words, no words
I've seen it all before
Don't cry because it is too late
We make some people think
That's all they need to get home
Now look into my eyes
I've seen the light

The star starts in the west
We have until we cry
Last time we offer
It's going to slaughter out
His covered eyes
Like in a really happy ending
Don't look into my eyes
You're gonna die

Please don't kill me now
In a house of guilty hate
We go around in circles
Ignore the pain
Ignore the terror
We saw the tears
Lost in their eyes

    General Commentlet me just add here that the vocal sample of the chorus screaming "you know what you are" is from the clint eastwood spaghetti western "the good, the bad and the ugly" at the very end of the movie. saw it a little bit ago and was like "wtf? ministry!"

    General CommentTo me it sounds like a reference to war and a soldier's observations. Could be wrong, though.
