This is the New Shit Lyrics
There's nothing left to say anymore
When it's all the same
You can ask for it by name
Babble babble bitch bitch
Rebel rebel party party
Sex sex sex and don't forget the "violence"
Blah blah blah got your...

This song is by far my favourite. This song spews pure irony. I believe this song was written by Manson to show that our society has become mindless and no longer cares for meanings in life, songs, or thought itself. Everything has become the same meaningless babble of words, no one seems to take note at the meanings, or thought put into these words, but just if it happens to be catchy.
Therefore, irony comes into play, for the song is about those that listen to mindless babble of words because of it's catchy tune and pile, of which seems, meaningless words.
"Babble babble bitch bitch
Rebel rebel party party
Sex sex sex and don't forget the "violence"
Blah blah blah got your lovey-dovey sad-and-lonely"
No one seems to take note of the meanings in these words said, just that they are a catchy tune to sing along with. But these words have become the speech of society. No longer meaningful, or useful in anyways, just all the same. The same meaningless words, no one understands, and yet:
"Do we get it? No.
Do we want it? Yeah"
Exactly like the song, song itself, most do not even take the two seconds it takes to listen to the meaning of the words. Showing society’s stupidity to not even take the time to think, but merely pay attention to the same, repeated, words that interest them from another. But thing song can be used in all of society’s actions.
Because I know Manson is very political about his songs, he was probably referring to the political situation, people don’t care about the meaning behind what a person says, or thinks, about truth and lies coming from politicians. If what they say sounds alluring to one’s self, they go with it. Everything being said is becoming nothing more than a pile of meaningless words jammed together, used only for the purpose to entertaining a crowd.

A MM song about ''This Is The New Shit'' FORM of ''Assault and Robbery'' on and OF the once known universal common sense ''know how'' to choose responsibly, then take responsibility for our actions with Individual integrity. Which our loving God's lost and unsaved children once had, but had been DAMAGED for ''The Use'' of chaotically scrambling our Children God given DNA genes upside down. Where they're expressing unbalanced Mind,Body and soul consciousness. By which is really nothing new under the sun, but reformed progressive Babble, Babble and more Babble programmed sex shit entertainment song language spoken in this song. By which the Children have been influenced and possessed with down the ladder. Like being robed by modern day Pirates on the high seas. Wherenow have tweaked and realighned our so called ''deplorable'' sheeple Children of ours, who have been ''grass' fed far too long to be dumbed down into feeling devilishly good for The Evil Empire's Left Hand System's systems. Wherefore the Children have been entertained by all kinds of these Radical Far Left ''Je[w]suit trained'' infiltration of Nazi fascists and cabalist entertainers. Which have been spreading propagandick ideas on the Children that traps and isolates the soul's Individuality to be sacrificed for the ''Global Collective Tribe'', while they're supporting their MASTERS so called new shit, but it's all the same old Left Hand Of Darkness Bullshit ideology with horns that have been used to Bully through their entertainment acts on our Children. By those with evil intent to seek out souls with it[satan] that makes sick our children's once known ''true words for living'' and understanding the just and loving power of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

He's describing the human condition. There is nothing new in reality. It's all been said before. It's the same shit in a different wrapper.
The perspective of the song in the human condition from the perspective of a teen.
Teens rebel. All teens, at all points in time past, present, and future. Your kids will think you are lame and don't get it period.
Sex. It permeates everything, it always has and always will.
Violence. Teens are angry at the pressure to conform to the parents norms, and it doesn't matter what those norms actually are. Teens will always rebel against the way things are. Old fucks don't understand that things have changed, except they haven't. Only the wrapper, or the rapper, and the tune have changed.
Except things haven't changed at all in any fundamental way. There is no "new shit", There are only new wrappers (songs, styles, lyrics, products) for the same timeless fears, worries and emotions.
"This is the new shit" is a nod to that. The new wrappers get embraced and the perceived new truth contained as the "new shit". The hot new different truth. Yet the more things change, the more they stay the same.
Another part of this is just feeling good from the song and music. The exact lyrics dont matter much. Throw a few buzz words in, and you are GTG as an artist. He's actually kinda making fun of his audience, but he can relate. Because he was the same way back in the day of his youth. It's how we are, and THAT is the point.
The new shit is the same ol' shit but it takes time and age to see this.

Definitely think this has something to do with advertising. Think about all the bull crap you see advertised on tv. Companies use slogans to make you remember their products. You see it in movies, clothing stores, fast food restaurants, hell even medications use slogans. It's so you REMEMBER them.
I also think it could be political since politicians use slogans as well. People are sheep, and they tend to latch onto slogans. As for the 'sex sex sex and don't forget the violence'... Well, sex sells. Violence sells. The Saw movies, Hostel, all those (what I call) torture porn movies sold because they were scary; they glorified sex and violence. People have the memory of a goldfish when it comes to advertising.

i think that the song focuses on the way society has changed. he clearly dislikes conservative viewpoints.
"Now its you know who" devil?
"I got the You know what's" possibly Drugs"
"ill stick it you know were, you know why, you dont care." -possibly a sexual reference. i believe it is talking how you no longer refer to (them) by name. he obviously thinks that the modernization of our society has effected the youth

this song is an epic..i think MM is trying to say that we have led our culture in a wrong way,,,a shit way..
he have said abt the govt who babble and make the citizens confused..nd the increasing violence and sex crimes..
so he suggests us to stand up for ourselves..
he has tried to convey the message that todays the meaning of sex has also been changed...there is no passion in doing it..you all know who, where to stick in but we dont know why we are doing it today..
anyways he says to be ourselves and make a difference....truely rock n roll...\m/
