Silver's good enough for me, Mr. T

I was five and he was six
We rode on horses made of sticks
He wore black and I wore white
He would always win the fight

The Queen's Marriage to Henry was short lived as she was executed via decapitation in the charges of Adultery and Unchastity, charges (whether True or Not) where fueled by her past indiscretions during her youth and by Protestant-leaning Archbishop Thomas Cranmer who was not happy about the fact that Catherine was a Catholic. The Letters mentioned either mean the Order of Execution signed by King Henry or The Letters Katherine is said to have sent to her Alleged Lover Thomas Culpepper, who was also killed on the block.

The song is about discrimination of interracial relationships. In the scene, the "Woman" Emcee sings about is presented as an actor in an ape suit. It is not until the final line in which it is revealed that the woman is actually Jewish. The message is to show that in the eyes of people caught up in the Nazi regime, a German in love with a Jewish person is just as bad as if they where in love with an animal.

Everybody loves a winner
So nobody love me
Lady peaceful, Lady happy
That's what I long to be

Meaning
The song Chromaggia is entirely a metaphor for Mag's own life. The song tells of a "Fatal Bird" named Chromaggia (Who is a metaphor for Mag herself). Who flies in to the path of an Archer's arrow. (Which symbolizes Mag's Surgery, her subsequent debt to GeneCo, and also the RepoMen who had been sent by Geneco to repossess Mag's eyes ) which she flees from for years believing it was chasing her. The people who see her ask why she doesn't continue to out fly the arrow (the same way Reporters ask why Mag she was leaving the Opera) but they can not see that the arrow was tied to her wing (Mag is tied to her debt). Chromaggia laments that by dragging the arrow around with her, others are harmed by her carelessness. (The same way Mag's debt caused her to become the voice of GeneCo and encourage people to get surgeries even though she knew that it would lead them to harm). The final line of the song is right before Mag tears out her mechanical eyes which bound her to GeneCo before the Repo Man and by extension GeneCo could take them from her. With this act and in this Song Mag finally frees herself from GeneCo.

And none of us, are free from this horror.
For many years ago we all fell in debt.
New body parts were need, to perfect our image
The main plot thrust of Repo! is the fact that Elective surgery has become a fashion statement and nearly the entire population has fallen victim of this fad. The Lyrics may show that all those who embark on something they haven't the resources to complete (i.e. buying organs as a fashion statement despite the fact that one hasn't the money to pay it off) will, at one point or an other, have to pay the piper so to speak.
