Yeah, I am the Astro-Creep
A demolition style hell
American freak, yeah
I am the crawling dead
A phantom in a box
Shadow in your head, say
Acid suicide
Freedom of the blast read the fucking lies, yeah
Scratch off the broken skin
Tear into my heart, make me do it again, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

More human than human
More human than human
More human than human

More human than human
More human than human
More human than human

Yeah, I am the jigsaw man
I turn the world around with a skeleton hand
Say, I am electric head
A cannibal core, a television said, yeah
Do not victimize
Read the motherfucker psychoholic lies, yeah
Into a psychic war
I tear my soul apart
And I eat it some more, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

More human than human
More human than human
More human than human

More human than human
More human than human
More human than human

Yeah, I am the ripper man
A locomotion mind, love American style, yeah
I am the Nexus-One
I want more life, fucker
I ain't done yet

More human than human
More human than human
More human than human
More human than human

More human than human
More human than human
More human than human
More human than human

    I used to take a lot of acid in high school, back in the 90's, and it seems to me Rob Zombie did too. And when on acid, different music lets you see different visuals. The whole seeing sound thing. and i listened to la sexorcisto, but never astro creep while tripping. But, Zombie would through me into the wickedest power-trips, projecting the craziest scenes all around. but, this song seems like it's trying to evoke a bad-trip, or even suicide if someone were on enough acid. good thing bands can't get sued or prosecuted for that stuff anymore.

    "A Phantom in a box" might suggest to someone, on acid, that there's a live entity in the radio.

    "Shadow in your Head" might suggest possession.

    "acid Suicide freedom Of the blast" might suggest to someone on a bad-trip, that just wanted it to be over, that they would find freedom through the blast of a gun. Wow, that's actually really f%#cked up. Or is it just me?

    The song is about the movie Blade Runner (or maybe the book it's based on). "More human than human" is a line from the movie, and all the verses are describing characters and plot points from the movie. "I want more life" is also a line from the movie.

    Seems to me this song really doesn't mean anything; Rob Zombie songs are famous for this as well. It kind of reminds me of Dragula, though, as they are both like an anthem basically saying "I'm evil snd cool. You must headbang to this song... You cannot resist!!!" I mean this in the best possible way, of course.

    Well, reading the lyrics again, it just reminded me of someone who is an outcast in society or a criminal and doesn't stop being self destructive because they must follow that path... reminds me of a lot of teenagers I know, actually. It's always up for interpretation, though.

    Great song, and although It may mean nothing, I see it as a way of defining a viscious human being... Perhaps someone like Hitler (if he had progressed further)... It's about chaos, tearing the world apart, and lying....

    Like most White Zombie songs it's just about death and destruction, I'm sure some of it may mean something to Rob but mostly it's just a collection of things.

More Featured Meanings

Album art
Light Up The Sky
Van Halen
The song lyrics were written by the band Van Halen, as they were asked to write a song for the 1979 movie "Over the Edge" starring Matt Dillon. The movie (and the lyrics, although more obliquely) are about bored, rebellious youth with nothing better to do than get into trouble. If you see the movie, these lyrics will make more sense. It's a great movie if you grew up in the 70s/80s you'll definitely remember some of these characters from your own life. Fun fact, after writing the song, Van Halen decided not to let the movie use it.
Album art
Fast Car
Tracy Chapman
"Fast car" is kind of a continuation of Bruce Springsteen's "Born to Run." It has all the clawing your way to a better life, but in this case the protagonist never makes it with her love; in fact she is dragged back down by him. There is still an amazing amount of hope and will in the lyrics; and the lyrics themselve rank and easy five. If only music was stronger it would be one of those great radio songs that you hear once a week 20 years after it was released. The imagery is almost tear-jerking ("City lights lay out before us", "Speeds so fast felt like I was drunk"), and the idea of starting from nothing and just driving and working and denigrating yourself for a chance at being just above poverty, then losing in the end is just painful and inspiring at the same time.

Son Şansın - Şarkı Sözleri
Hayalperest
This song seemingly tackles the methods of deception those who manipulate others use to get victims to follow their demands, as well as diverting attention away from important issues. They'll also use it as a means to convince people to hate or kill others by pretending acts of terrorism were committed by the enemy when the acts themselves were done by the masters of control to promote discrimination and hate. It also reinforces the idea that these manipulative forces operate in various locations, infiltrating everyday life without detection, and propagate any and everywhere. In general, it highlights the danger of hidden agendas, manipulation, and distraction, serving as a critique of those who exploit chaos and confusion to control and gain power, depicting a cautionary tale against falling into their traps. It encourages us to question the narratives presented to us and remain vigilant against manipulation in various parts of society.
Album art
Blue
Ed Sheeran
“Blue” is a song about a love that is persisting in the discomfort of the person experiencing the emotion. Ed Sheeran reflects on love lost, and although he wishes his former partner find happiness, he cannot but admit his feelings are still very much there. He expresses the realization that he might never find another on this stringed instrumental by Aaron Dessner.
Album art
Punchline
Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran sings about missing his former partner and learning important life lessons in the process on “Punchline.” This track tells a story of battling to get rid of emotions for a former lover, whom he now realized might not have loved him the same way. He’s now caught between accepting that fact and learning life lessons from it and going back to beg her for another chance.
