I am the one, Orgasmatron
The outstretched grasping hand
My image is of agony
My servants rape the land
Obsequious and arrogant
Clandestine and vain
Two thousands years of misery
Of torture in my name
Hypocrisy made paramount
Paranoia the law
My name is called religion
Sadistic, sacred whore

I twist the truth, I rule the world
My crown is called deceit
I am the emperor of lies
You grovel at my feet
I rob you and I slaughter you
Your downfall is my gain
And still you play the sycophant
And revel in your pain
And all my promises are lies
All my love is hate
I am the politician
And I decide your fate

I march before a martyred world
An army for the fight
I speak of great heroic days
Of victory and might
I hold a banner drenched in blood
I urge you to be brave
I lead you to your destiny
I lead you to your grave
Your bones will build my palaces
Your eyes will stud my crown
For I am Mars, the God of War
And I will cut you down

    My OpinionMy view on this is that we're just shown an apocalyptic view of the epitome of human destruction.
    The first third is about religion, with its own brutality.
    The second part is about politics, with the deceit, control and power.
    And the third part is about war, fought for wrong leaders for example.

    These 3, religion, politics and war, are humanity's greatest murderers, and I suppose everybody can easily agree with this. You bring them together, and you've got mankind's destroyer.

    My two cents.

    General CommentIt's just their personification of powermadness, and a brilliant one for that. The way the music fits in with the lyrics and his groveling voice, it's haunting!

    General CommentIt's about a lot of things and figures that manipulate and deceive us, notably priests, politicians, rulers, dictators, etc. The first verse references Christianity and how it's violent and cruel against Gays, Jews, etc.("Two thousand years or misery, of torture in my name"). It also mentions the Heaven/Hell/Sin concept ("Hypocrisy made paramount, paranoia the law"), about how if you don't live your life by a certain code and follow set laws, you will be damned for eternity. The second verse obviously references corrupt politicians, and the third references proud dictators and rulers who rule with an iron fist and have Nazi-like pride for their country.

    Yep, that's one bad ass song.

    Song MeaningLemmy's responses to the song's title and meaning:

    "Yeah, the song is about all the things that people like to do instead of orgasms. People get political orgasms and religious orgasms and holy war orgasms. It's all shit."


    In another interview he expanded on that:

    "It refers to the three things that I hate most in life, organized religion, politics, and war. Things like people that go to church and cum in their pants while communing with Jesus Christ. It's all a bunch of bullshit. If you are really into that, you don't need to go to a church to talk to God, you can talk to Him anywhere, you know? Or if you join a political party and get your jollies off of that, when your party wins and all that. It's the herd instinct. The same thing with the war. They give you a nice new uniform and march you off to die."

    General CommentJoel McIver quotes Lemmy in his Motörhead memoir Overkill:The Untold Story of Motörhead:\n"It refers to the three things that I hate most in life - organized religion, politics and war. Things like people that go to church and cum in their pants while communicating with Jesus Christ. It\'s all a bunch of bullshit. If you\'re really into that, you don\'t need to go to church or talk to God, you can talk to him everywhere, you know? Or if you join a political party and get your jollies off that, when your party wins and all that. It\'s the herd instinct. The same thing with war. They give you a nice new uniform and march you off to die."\n\nLemmy also wrote that the album title had nothing to do with the orgasm-inducing machine that appeared in the futuristic Woody Allen film Sleeper, which he had not even seen

    General CommentI have no words to describe the greatness of the song. Also, it reminds me of George W. Bush. Lemmy, you are a fucking genius.

    General CommentLemmy has to be one of the best lyricists ever. Who else do you know that can use the words "obsequious", "clandestine" and "sycophant" in the same song?
