The Lyrics

Somebody once told them
They weren't completely wholesome
They weren't another preppy or jock
They would always wear these black
Trenchcoats draped across their back
And they digged KMFDM's shock rock

Well, the taunts start coming
And they don't stop coming
Let's break the rules
And resort to some gunning
Would it make sense not to kill someone
And get revenge on all of Littleton?
Nothing to lose
So much to gain
So what's wrong with shooting up classmates?
We never liked anyone, so
We're young and we're ready to blow

Hey, now, you're an outcast
Shoot your school up
Get riled
Hey, now, you're a low caste
Get back at them
Go wild
All that's bitter is gold
This school shooting shows the angst we hold

Not a cool place, this is no UC Boulder
It's got nothing but jocks giving freaks the cold shoulder
But the faculty there beg to differ
State championships paint a prettier picture

Our guns work, great,
The coast is looking clear
I hate those who conform
A & F clones thrive here
Mine's set on "fire",
How about yours?
Then they hit the library
And kids hit the floors

Hey, now, you're an outcast
Shoot your school up
Get riled
Hey, now, you're a low caste
Get back at them
Go wild
All that's bitter is gold
This school shooting shows the angst we hold

Hey, now, you're an outcast
Shoot your school up
Get riled
Hey, now, you're a low caste
Get back at them
Go wild
All that's bitter is gold
This school shooting shows . . .

They saw her, they asked,
"Doyou think God can save your ass
Do you believe you'd be in a better place?"
She said "Yes,
Yeah, I confess"
Then they spared her, but somehow the press
Said it was someone they shot with raaaaage . . .

Well, the taunts start coming
And they don't stop coming
Let's break the rules
And resort to some gunning
Would it make sense not to kill someone
And get revenge on all of Littleton?
Nothing to lose
So much to gain
So what's wrong with shooting up classmates?
We never liked anyone, so
We're young and we're ready to blow

Hey, now, you're an outcast
Shoot your school up
Get riled
Hey, now, you're a low caste
Get back at them
Go wild
All that's bitter is gold
This school shooting shows the angst we hold
