Cryptorchid
Marilyn Manson Lyrics


Each time I make my mother cry an
Angel dies and falls from heaven
When the boy is still a worm it´s hard to
Learn the number seven
But when they get to you
It´s the first thing that they do
Each time I look outside
My mother dies I feel my back is changing shape
When the worm consumes the boy it´s never
Considered rape
When they get to you
Prick your finger it is done
The moon has now eclipsed the sun
The angel has spread its wings
The time has come for bitter things

This song has two meanings. Antichrist Superstar is a concept album and the first narrative is this is when the worm "grows his balls" and becomes the Antichrist Superstar. Cryptorchidism is a defect where your testicles don't drop. The second meaning imo is about Manson personally "growing his balls" and turning to atheism.

"Prick your finger it is done the moon has now eclipsedthe sun the angel has spread its wings the time has come for bitter things." This is the worms transformation and this line is repeated on the actual song Antichrist Superstar.

"When the worm consumes the boy its never ever considered rape" this is about the religious indoctrinating of young people imo.

In his biography Manson talks about how catholic school terrified him, talking about how they were all sinners and were damned to hell for eternity if they didn't worship god. Manson said that he was going to give them something to be scared about.

"anti-people now you've gone too far, heres your antichrist superstar"

"Cryptorchid"

Each time i make my mother cry an
angel dies and falls from heaven
when the boy is still a worm it's hard to
learn the number seven
but when they get to you
it's the first thing that they do
each time I look outside
my mother dies, I feel my back is changing shape
when the worm consumes the boy it's never
considered rape
when they get to you
Prick your finger it is done...
the moon has now eclipsed the sun...
the angel has spread its wings...
the time has come for bitter things...

"Hello?
The fear of a void
I owned it
It’s mine.
O Dark
November
Over two thousand years...
I fell down again,
(Or did I jump?)
I shattered
then scattered
No one ever came
To reassemble me again.

A dead zone
Talk to me!
Dreamt I was in hell
Where do dreams end
and reality begin?
it truly seemed
I couldn't ever leave
I woke up, dead
(I’ll do anything for it)
Opened eyes
Broken mind
Was I ever truly alive?

No tears or saliva
Only raw
Cold blood
Reptilian me
(It’s filthy there)
My mouth, my tongue
Your favorite bits
Where is my heart
cunt
brain
skin bones
and clenched teeth;
(you said I'm far too sweet)
I braced for impact
Just a little too late
We adore it
One thundering beat
I’m staying
Shouting
Victory!
No.
I’ll never leave
I’ve been here before
It’s deep inside me
A door is here
(I'm so cruel, that's what you said)
Bittersweet,
That's the aftertaste
of all the life
you drained of me

My eyes have seen
beyond Vanderblack
It's the necter of nightmares.
You think you know dark,
but the absence of all light
is unimaginable
(with good reason).

If I can find the door again
I've opened it before.
I'll escape once more,
The lock & key
it's in me now
You see me?
But how
I loved,
but always lost

For the first time
It's the last time

This living lie
The shoe fit
Now own it
What's mine
Is ours.

The cold winter
oh dark
november
Over two thousand years,
Can't you hear me?

It's me,
Your darling of the dead
It’s over
I own it
It’s mine! "- Mary Catherine

[Verse 1]
Each time I make my mother cry
An angel dies and falls from heaven (But when they get to you)
When the boy is still a worm
It's hard to learn the number seven

But when they get to you (5, 6, 7, 8, never)
It's the first thing that they do (7, 8, 9, 10, Heaven)
But when they get to you (4, 3, 2, 1, never get to 7)

[Verse 2]
Each time I look outside, my mother dies
I feel my back is changing shape (But when they get to you)
When the worm consumes the boy
It's never, ever considered rape

But when they get to you (I wish I had my balls)
First thing that they do (I wish I had my balls)
But when they get to you...

[Refrain]
Prick your finger, it is done
The moon has now eclipsed the sun
The angel has spread it's wings
The time has come for bitter things
[Verse 1]
Each time I make my mother cry
An angel dies and falls from heaven (But when they get to you)
When the boy is still a worm
It's hard to learn the number seven

But when they get to you (5, 6, 7, 8, never)
It's the first thing that they do (7, 8, 9, 10, Heaven)
But when they get to you (4, 3, 2, 1, never get to 7)

[Verse 2]
Each time I look outside, my mother dies
I feel my back is changing shape (But when they get to you)
When the worm consumes the boy
It's never, ever considered rape

But when they get to you (I wish I had my balls)
First thing that they do (I wish I had my balls)
But when they get to you...

[Refrain]
Prick your finger, it is done
The moon has now eclipsed the sun
The angel has spread it's wings
The time has come for bitter things
Prick your finger, it is done
The moon has now eclipsed the sun
The angel has spread it's wings
The time has come for bitter things

Prick your finger, it is done
The moon has now eclipsed the sun
The angel has spread it's wings
The time has come for bitter things

Prick your finger, it is done
The moon has now eclipsed the sun
The angel has spread it's wings
The time has come for bitter things

Prick your finger, it is done
The moon has now eclipsed the sun
The angel has spread it's wings
The time has come for bitter things

"Each time I make my mother cry an
angel dies and falls from heaven"

This is about a young boy that is taught to believe in Christianity. The line refers to the ten commandments, especially the fourth rule (praise your parents and so on).

"when the boy is still a worm it's hard to learn the number seven"

The number 7 is representing the essential human being, since the 4 is the christian symbol for the body and the materialistic things in general while the 3 represents the soul/spirit. 
The line means that the boy can not develope his own personality when he is the worm (the albums metaphor for a naive person blinded by religion/media/government).

The title of the song strenghtens this interpretation since a Cryptorchid is the professional term for a missing testicle of a newborn boy. This can be interpreted as a missing part of the child, in this case a real personality.

To conclude:

This song is about the society forcing tmyoung children to believe things before they have the ability to create an own independent opinion.

You're welcome ^^

(Btw sorry for possible grammar mistakes, I am from germany :D )
