I've sewn my seed
Where the mandrake grows
No footsteps go beyond it

I'll eat the death
Where the rooster crows
Flesh rodeos, yee-haw it

Player, push in your teardrops
Make you a cyclops
Breaking the branches off your family tree

Keep you up like a fluffer girl
Ain't that enough with her?
Look in the sewer for my pedigree

(Mostly inaudible at this point)

Day by day, day... my day

Listen closer to your mother
You can hear her ocean roar
Sittin' quiet in the corner
Put another record on
God hates a coward, sonny
Got a date with your vcr?
Watch another action movie
Dream of me...

On the only piano
That wrote the fuckin' concerto
Shoot pool with your eyeballs
Rack 'em up

Make a meal of your asshole
Gnaw on your fat soul
Dunkin' your heart in my vinegar

(Mostly inaudible at this point)

Day by day, day... my day

    "the meaning of this song is to send you out in search of more accurate lyric pages that don't start off with mandrakes"

    I dunno, i've read a lot of lyric pages for this song, and most of them are definitely wrong on many of the lines. Wtf is a "metric grosse" anyway? The mandrake line definitely makes more sense imo.

    The narrator in this song is sometimes identified as an abusive father scolding his son or a serial killer threatening a potential victim. These interpretations make some sense in a linear way, but to really understand god hates a coward you have to look at it as a series of abstract metaphors rather than a single, concrete story imo. It doesn’t matter who the narrator is exactly, it’s more about what the voice represents, which is the satanist/illuminati point-of-view. Hence the line “make you a cyclops”, referring to the “all-seeing eye” that’s often associated with the illuminati. This line also refers to the idea of causing someone to have “tunnel vision”, thereby keeping other avenues hidden from their view. That’s essentially what occult practice is, and that’s what this song is alluding to.

    In the first line, it's "where the mandrake grows", not "with a metric grosse". He's talking about an old magical concept of artificially growing human beings via the roots of the mandrake (to create a more android-like person who is easily controlled).
