Do you favor all with good intention?
Never mind the destination
Sex, Guns, and Anarchy
Blood, Guts, and Sodomy

Mutually your shore destruction
Backing down is not an option
Sex, Guns, and Anarchy
Blood, Guts, and Sodomy

How this works
You sell

You gotta believe in me
I am everything
I’m the final step you take towards your sanity
You gotta believe in me
I am everything
I’m the only one still left in your reality
You gotta believe in me

You dug a hole and fell inside
Your perfect world was compromised
Sex, Guns, and Anarchy
Blood, Guts, and Sodomy

You still don’t know who the hell you are
You’re only worried about the balance on your credit card
Sex, Guns, and Anarchy
Blood, Guts, and Sodomy

How this works
You sell

You gotta believe in me
I am everything
I’m the final step you take towards your sanity
You gotta believe in me
I am everything
I’m the only one still left in your reality
You gotta believe in me

TV sells hypocrisy
It’s feeding off of apathy
Above the surface all is well
But dig up it and go to hell

Just put a bullet in my head
I’ve already have been left for dead

Just shut your mouth and close your eyes
Reality’s alive

You gotta believe in me
I am everything
I’m the final step you take towards your sanity
You gotta believe in me
I am everything
I’m the only one still left in your reality
You gotta believe in me

    General Comment"Sex, Guns, and Anarchy

    The repetition of this seems to be trying to drill it in to your skull.

    "Mutually your shore destruction
    Backing down is not an option"
    Once you're in, you're in for life, and you can see what's ahead yet are powerless to stop it.

    "You dug a hole and fell inside
    Your perfect world was compromised"
    Could mean digging a grave, a hope for an escape from the world, or it could mean a metaphorical hole; like when people say "Just stop digging" when your words are really getting you in to a mess because you keep saying all the wrong things - so this could mean that everything's going wrong, no matter how much it is attempted to put it right, you dug your self into a hole and you're stuck there.
    A compromise is where you meet someone halfway so you both get a bit of what you want. So, you get your perfect world - yet ironicly there are flaws so that maybe it's TOO perfect, and has turned out to be a nightmare catastrophe.

    "You still don’t know who the hell you are
    You’re only worried about the balance on your credit card"
    Everything is so materialistic now, people buy buy buy and think "I'll deal with the bill later", maybe he's saying that people are buying so much that they're submerged and drowning in possessions, they're all fake and clones.

    "TV sells hypocrisy
    It’s feeding off of apathy"
    Television is a main culprit of all advertising etc.

    "Just put a bullet in my head
    I’ve already have been left for dead"
    There's no hope left for us, we may as well be dead because this certainly isn't living.

    "Just shut your mouth and close your eyes
    Reality’s alive"
    Stop seeing the lies, stop speaking the lies - instead close your eyes and you'll see who you are, your own imagination. You close your eyes when you really need to think and concentrate, or when you dream - dreams are purely YOU, no one else has a say in what you dream - he's seems to be saying to listen to your dreams, be unique once more.

    "You gotta believe in me
    I am everything
    I’m the final step you take towards your sanity
    You gotta believe in me
    I am everything
    I’m the only one still left in your reality
    You gotta believe in me"
    Maybe this means "I'm your only hope", he's throwing a rope to the public, and begs them to grab hold of it firmly so he can help them.
    Or he could be speaking as if he IS a brainwasher, telling everyone that they need nothing else, just 'him', just what he wants them to want...

    I've never heard this song, just felt like seeing if I can pass the time at 1:30am.

    General CommentThis song isnt even by Marilyn Manson. It is a Skold song, Manson just does backing vocals. From all I can see the only line Manson sings in the whole song is
    "Sex, Guns, and Anarchy
    Blood, Guts, and Sodomy"
    and he didnt write any of the lyrics.
    Therefore, I do not think this song should be on here, which is for Manson songs, or at least, this fact should be noted.
    All the same, great fucking song.
