"My Girlfriend" as written by Matthew Arnold Thiessen, Stephen Cushman, Matthew Ryan Hoopes and Brian Lee Pittman....
Walk through the streets of PA and you may see her.
Go up to her and say you're a believer.
Disgusting trash on MTV it makes her smile.
That guy from Satan's embassy put him on trial.

Because... Marilyn Manson ate my girlfriend.
Satan consumed her mind, and he may do it again.
Marylin Manson ate my girlfriend.
She once believed in the truth, now she believes in sin.

She denies God when she has the chance to live for him.
The thought of it makes me cringe.
Her future looks dim.
She'd rather gaze in Satan's eyes than on a steeple.
I'm really starting to despise beautiful people.

    General Commentthis song is about satan using people like marilyn manson and just people like that to influence people and gather followers for him. it talks about being influenced by the world and by sin and falling into that way of living and turning your back on Christ.

    General CommentTo be honest, I'm disgusted by this song. Everyone's entitled to their own opinion, but when a band that claims to be Christian starts attacking other musicians for being different from them, it's not true Christianity. It's just an example of modern "believers" thinking they're better than everyone else.

    General CommentRelient K isn't attacking Marilyn Manson. They're just using him as a metaphor for the disgusting trash on MTV that's described in the song.

    General Commentyeah. Did you think that Marilyn Manson literally ate his girlfriend?

    Metaphor, baby. Metaphors. This is also off their first cd, and Relient K is goofier the older the songs are.

    General CommentI read in wikipedia that Matty T wrote this song because a "female friend [of his] turned from Christian music to Marilyn Manson, and in that way, Marilyn Manson ate his friend".

    I was watching the music video and, it's sort of funny because there's some of the old members of the band on it. The video's cute, though. Overall, cool song.

    General CommentThis is a pretty fucked up song. These pussies are using Manson as a metaphor for all the "evil" things in the world. And about how his "girl" is now influenced by all of it. First of all, these kids have NO musical talent... just wanted to throw that out there. Second, nothing about Manson's music has anything to do with evil, satan, or devil worshiping. How are they going to attack Manson without ever having heard any of his songs?? Idiots. They have no right to judge, but I DO have a right to call them retards, because I'm not judging, I'm just going by a simple equasion: This song contradicts itself, therefore they are retarded cunts.

    The Bible says DO NOT judge. So then they judge "Marilyn Manson et al." in a song about how people like him are bad, and how the Bible and Christ are good. That's called being a mindless hypocrite and contradicting yourself, thus, making an ass-clown out of yourself.

    Not only that, but they are completely wrong in their judgements. His songs are all satire, political, or personal. Pretty normal stuff.

    This is why I hate religion, and hate religious people on a personal level. Lyrics like this are just trash, and don't belong in society whatsoever. I'm not even that big of a Manson fan. I like his lyrics, and he's very musically talented, it's just that his sound is usually not my cup of tea. I enjoy some of it though.

    Not only is this song extremely hateful and stupid, but also, the lyrics could've easily been written by a five-year-old. Literally.

    she likes mtvvvvvvv
    and bad stuffffff
    but she needs godddddddddd
    blahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

    Wow.

    But yeah, Relient K are idiots, and on a side-note, suck at music. The music part isn't their fault. Some people just suck at it, like them. But respect is something from sunday school that they obviously decided to disregard. They really need to be put in their place and learn to "respect your neighbor as yourself". WWJD?????

    If you're gonna take a shot at someone - go ahead. Believe me, I'm all for taking shots at people and being confrontational. But first make sure you have a reason to, and not just do it because "Marilyn Manson has black hair and sca-wy make up and that's bad because that's what the DEVILLL looks like in my picture bible."
