Marilyn Manson

Brian Hugh Warner (born January 5, 1969), better known by his stage name Marilyn Manson, is an American rock musician and former music journalist known for his controversial stage persona and image as the lead singer of the eponymous band Marilyn Manson. His stage name was formed from juxtaposing the names of two American cultural icons, namely actress Marilyn Monroe and multiple murder convict Charles Manson as a critical and, simultaneously, laudatory appraisal of America and its peculiar culture. The seemingly outrageous visual and vocal styles he employs, his unique interpretations of familiar songs and the controversy surrounding his lyrics and imagery have led to his very pronounced public appeal. more »

 Become A Better Singer In Only 30 Days, With Easy Video Lessons!

They slit our throats
Like we were flowers
And our milk has been
Devoured

When you want it
It goes away too fast
When you hate it
It always seems to last
But just remember when you think
You're free
The crack inside your f*cking heart is me

(Thought, not spoken):
I want to outrace the speed of pain for another day

I wish I could sleep
But I can't lay on my back
Because there's a knife
For everyday that I've known you

When you want it
It goes away too fast
When you hate it
It always seems to last

But just remember when you think
You're free
The crack inside your f*cking heart is me

(Thought, not spoken):
I want to outrace the speed of pain for another day

Lie to me, cry to me, give to me
I would
Lie with me, die with me, give to me
I would
Keep all your secrets wrapped in dead hair
I hope at least we die holding hands for always.
