"Lamb Of God" as written by Brian Warner and Jeordie White....
There was Christ in the metal shell
There was blood on the pavement
The camera will make you god
That's how jack became sainted

If you die when there's no one watching
Then your ratings drop and your forgotten
But But if they kill you on their T.V.
You're a martyr and a lamb of god
Nothing's gunna change
Nothing's gunna change the world

There was Lennon in the happy gun
There were words on the pavement
We were looking for the lamb of god
We were looking for Mark David

If you die when there's no one watching
Then your ratings drop and your forgotten
But if they kill you on their T.V.
You're a martyr and a lamb of god

Nothing's gunna change the world
Nothing's gunna change
Nothing's gunna change the world
Nothing's gunna change the world

It took three days for him to die
The born again to buy the serial rights
Lamb of god have mercy on us
Lamb of god will you grant us

Nothing's gunna change the world
Nothing's gunna change
Nothing's gunna change the world
Nothing's gunna change
Nothing's gunna change the world
Nothing's gunna change
Nothing's gunna change the world
Nothing's gunna change the world

If you die when there's no one watching
Then your ratings drop and your forgotten
But if they kill you on their T.V.
You're a martyr and a lamb of god

Nothing's gunna change the world

    General CommentGreat song.
    "There was Christ in the metal shell" - JFK (as a comparison of christ) in his car

    "There was blood on the pavement" - After he was shot obviously

    "The camera will make you god" - Publicity and serialism made JFK into a christ like figure, he was even martyred

    "That's how Jack became sainted" - You have to admit JFK is like a saint now, people ask "where were u when JFK was killed?" everyone knows about it, school history classes even teach it.

    The Chorus is reasonably self-explanatory, if your life AND DEATH are televised and in the public eye, nobodies gunna forget you in a hurry, if not, your just another nobody

    pdawg explained the second verse pretty well

    "It took three days, for him to die
    so the born again could buy the serial rights"

    This is saying how the "born again" or Christians use Christs martyrdom in ways which it wasnt meant to be used.

    Anyway, thats what I think, Dont shoot me :p

    General Comment"There was Lennon and the happy gun
    there were words on the pavement
    we were looking for a lamb of god
    we were looking for Mark David"

    that whole verse is about john lennon it even says "There was Lennon and the happy gun"

    the whole song is about john lennon if u read the lyrics its so obvious

    General Commentthe chorus of this song "nothing's going to change the world" is sought to be similar to john lennon's song "across the universe" which bears the chorus "nothing's going to change my world"
    in "lamb of god" one of the lines is "we were looking for Mark David", mark david being the man who shot lennon and in fact did change his world

    General CommentExcellent song!! one of my favorites

    Others have stated the references to JFKs assasination in this song, and others on the holywood album, this song signifies the awe of greeving and sorrow, it is perfectly lined up on the album.
    The holywood album is inspired by his views on the apocalypse, and the armageddon. If you look into the stages of death, you might realise that he represents different emotions leading up to death.

    General Commentthe stages are:
    Denial
    Anger
    Fear
    Bargining or Begging
    Finally Acceptance

    these are stages which people go through when they realize the end is near!!, whether it be your life or the end of the world

    General Commentmarilyn manson...wow....well...here is my opinion: Marilyn Manson has a very odd obsession with the JFK assasination (WITH GOOD RIGHT). I understand that the assasination had an effect on everyone. but I think that while it was sad, it is deffinetly time to move on (its 2005 for goodness sake!) I am not saying we should FORGET JFK, of course we shouldn't. but we seem to hold JFK as a christ like figure(which we SHOULDN'T he comes nowhere CLOSE to christ!), and we need to MOVE ON!!!

    General Commenti thought it said "there was blood on the pavement".
    preciouss, he doesn't have an obsession with JFK, he just seems to be good subject in a song because he's still such a huge figure and in a song if you're going to try and get a point across, JFK is a very wise choice to get that point across
