[Kid:] Next motherfucker's gonna get my metal

On we plow
The big bully try to stick his finger in my chest
Try to tell me, tell me he's the best
But I don't really give a good goddamn cause
I got my lunchbox and I'm armed real well

    It's about Nikki sixx motley crüe.
    The story of him at school fending with his lunchbox
    the actual story is told in the motley book 'the dirt'
    Manson was inspired by this story and wrote about it

    This song pretty much sums up my life at school.. Oh, and about the "Pow" sound effect, pow can be a punch or any strike, not specificly guns.

    This song to me seems to be about a child constantly beaten and put down at school. And his lunchbox was a metaphor for a gun to kill everyone at school. I say this because near the middle of the song the lyrics are pow pow pow pow pow pow pow

    Well, this song is about Manson's crazy childhood, specifically his years at school, where he was subject to bullies (you know him). But when picked on, he never went down without a fight. Manson, or Brain at the time, proceeded to fend off his attackers with a metal lunchbox. At some point, he said what kind of Lunchbox it was, I think it was KISS, or something like that.

    And in fact, "Next motherfucker gonna get my metal" became his catchphrase through his years of lunchbox-fighting.
