"Diamonds & Pollen" as written by and Brian/white Warner....
America bled to death,
Electric and pregnant,
Brilliant sluts and fire worship,
Devouring the righteous,
We were just monkeys braiding thread,
We were golden needles,
Diamonds and pollen...

Then Coma White,
A mannequeen of depression,
With the face of a dead star,
Fagged out for the corner,
She was so soft in her death,
And the pomegranate Earth,
Spins into oblivion,

The one that trembles,
The one that fears,
The one that suffers,
The one that vomits,
The one that needs,

A million scars,
A million promises,

And all your sad endings,
Are planting in their gardens,
And their waiting to grow,
And to die like flowers too,
And all your sad endings,
Are planting in their gardens,
And their waiting to grow,
And to die like flowers to...

    General Commentmanson is a poet. just because you dont understand it doesnt mean its there to sound cool.

    monkeys braining hair could easily describe how many people are stupid and they just focus on their looks as their brain sits and rots.

    General CommentThis song is rather intense. I'm not going to put up my definition of the song because i can't word it properly. The lines
    "And all your sad endings are planting in their gardens
    And they're waiting to grow & to die like flowers do"
    are shakespeare inspired, anyhoo

    General CommentPart of this songs, I believe has to do with reproduction and abnormal sexuality , "sluts and fire worship", meaningless sex, "monkeys braiding thread", thread a reference to DNA, people mixing.
    Diamons and pollen, a reference to the reproduction of plants, like in the video "Disposable teens", just like "golden needles" is a reference to Hemerocallis, a plant with a peculiar sets of chromosomes.,

    I don't think people understand this song at all.
    Most of the times Manson use some kind of riddles in his songs.
