Check your diction
Search your memory
Create your history
Still not true
Write your novel
Pick and shovel
You will need them when I bury you

No forgiveness you're no martyr
Sell yourself
Make it true

Check your grammar
your bad nature
Exaggerations still not true
Ask your question and listen closely
Here's your answer
It's still fuck you

No forgiveness you're no martyr
Sell yourself
Make it true
There's no price tag on my conscience
here's your answer it's still
FUCK YOU

I met a man who was gone in a day
He grabbed my hands
Memories flashed away
I met a man who was once on my side
he wrote a book
and now everyone lies
NO

No forgiveness you're no martyr
Sell yourself
make it true
There's no price tag on my conscience
here's your answer it's still
FUCK YOU

    General CommentI thought it was about Manson too...until I read Mansons book. Manson says nothing negative about JOJ in the book, and Jessicka has even admited to have had a relationship with one of Mansons bandmates while they were on tour. Other than that, I dont know what it's about.

    General CommentYou mean Jordie?...aka Twiggy...Yeah...she had a relationship with him back in the early 90s...this song could quite possibly be about him as well as my cat...but i'm not sure...either way it's not entirely about manson although that could be in there somewhere too..

    General Commenti think it's about Marilyn Manson, but I don't know why. As liana said, he doesn't say anything bad about Jack Off Jill or Jessicka in it. But it does sound like it's about him. I confused.

    General CommentOk listen ppl Marylin Manson is a band not a person if your're talking about the lead singer of Marylin Manson his name is Brian Warner.And I think this song is possibly about Twiggy Ramirez,but i'm not totally sure,but who ever it's about itz a great song.O yeah and so what if Brian(marylin manson)is gay he's still sexy as hell!

    General Commentwhen i first heard this song i thought it was about religion and the the bible, hence the title 'author unknown'
    hey i could be wrong, but i still think that's what it's about.

    General CommentUmm...i was thinking the Bible, First because the title it "Author Unknown" like blasphemous said, then again because theres a little picture in the booklet, lmao.

    General Commenti thought it was about the bible too, but then theres the whole 'i met a man' thing, and also the lines that suggest the author asking for her to give some consent for something to be put in a book, or sumfing similar. i think its more about someone writing something to make them look better or whatever and she thinks its wrong, and the author unknown title is because the listener isnt supposed to know who the songs about. or maybe thats just me thinking too much...
