Skinny Puppy's art has never been something to be taken at face value, and careful attention to Ogre's commentaries on Mythmaker will reveal an underlying sense of seething. The opening "magnifishit" (with the disturbing line "I am the maggot's muscle/magnet missile/your mother's pisshole") is a send-up of alt-culture braggadocio intended to be demeaned. On the urgent "politikiL" the singer asks rhetorically, "Are you up for the suck?" effectively summarizing the deceit and half-truths fed to the legion of the media-pacified. The simultaneous percolating and grinding "ugLi" (with its refrain "Jesus wants to be ugly"), is not an attack on spirituality, but a treatise on how religion is used as a tool by the morally bankrupt as a means of control. "I wrote those lyrics over a year ago, because I felt that the concept of Jesus was being used in an ugly fashion," says the singer. "Now, you're seeing a large body of the Christian movement questioning that utopian union and questioning the morality of the current administration."
