And so you spread your lies, won't face reality
And endless fight a struggle to be free
Close minded fools and their hypocrisy
The endless time you take away from me
I don't need your sympathy
Why do you think your better than me
Idleness antipathy
Why do you want to stop our scene
Your way of life the paths you choose
You will never try so you can only loose
Broken mirrors shattered glass
You can sell your soul but you are going nowhere fast
And so you exercise your own free will
I exercise my fucking right to kill
Vicious lies you propagate your swill
Of you're whole kind I've had my fill
You're so transparent you don't think I can see right through you all
Of your venom directed reflected right back on yourself
Give your opinion to anyone who will listen to you
But I wish you would just give it to someone else
All I get from you is some bullshit attitude
I see it in your eyes but you don't realize
I'm waiting for the day when you'll see a better way
We may not be so kind to you next time
And so you spread your lies, won't face reality
And endless fight a struggle to be free
Close minded fools and their hypocrisy
I've got ideals you can't take away from me

    Sounds like a repudiation of malignant narcissism.

Shudder to Think
This song is timeless, and nearly 20 years after its creation, still possesses the mystique it did the first time i heard it ~1994. To me, at first blush, all those years ago, it had some kind of homo-erotic allure. The line "so that the others may do" tells of something which must be done for others to follow suit. It felt like like some kind of roxy-glam-pop invitation to sexual liberation. Upon further introspection I think the song may not have an intrinsic meaning, but simply represents a sort of "holding open the door" for people who otherwise might be affronted by this song/band's unusual style. I know, as a sort of armchair rock-historian, that there have been few bands so daring and so true to the sound that wanted to emerge from within, whether the creator wanted it or not. This band handled it with elegance and grace seldom, if ever, seen.
