"Lunchbox" is the second single from American rock band Marilyn Manson's 1994 debut album, Portrait of an American Family (1994). It is the tenth track on the 2004 album Lest We Forget: The Best Of.

A heavy metal song that features elements of death metal, industrial music and punk rock, "Lunchbox" was written by the band's eponymous vocalist, Daisy Berkowitz, and Gidget Gein, and produced by Manson with Trent Reznor. According to Berkowitz, the track was written as the frontman's plea to be left alone; it was also inspired by a time where Manson defended himself from bullies with a Kiss lunchbox. The track features elements of "Fire" (1968) performed by Arthur Brown, a musician who influenced the band.

Writer: Marilyn Manson
Composers: Daisy Berkowitz and Gidget Gein

Lyrics Edit

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

"I bring you"

Bring you down

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
I got my lunchbox and I'm armed real well
I got my lunchbox and I'm armed real well

I wanna grow up
I wanna be a big rock and roll star
I wanna grow up
I wanna be
So no one fucks with me

"Fire"

"I bring you, fire"

"Fire"

"I bring you"

I got the pencils in my pocket, try to put me down
Wanna go out, gotta get out
To the playground, gonna throw down at the playground
I wanna go out

Next motherfucker gonna get my metal
Next motherfucker gonna get my metal
Next motherfucker gonna get my metal
Next motherfucker

Pow Pow Pow, Pow Pow Pow,
Pow Pow Pow, Pow Pow Pow

I wanna grow up
I wanna be a big rock and roll star
I wanna grow up
So no one fucks with me

Yeah
I wanna grow up
I wanna be a big rock and roll star
I wanna grow up
I wanna be
So no one fucks with me, yeah

I wanna grow up
I wanna be a big rock and roll star
I wanna grow up
I wanna be
So no one fucks with me, yeah
