"Just A Car Crash Away" as written by Brian Warner and Tim Skold....
Love is a fire
Burns down all that it sees
Burns down everything
Everything you think burnt down
Everything you say

She blew me her death-kiss and the mouth-marks bled down my eyes
Like her dying on my windshield, I can already feel her worms eating my spine
So how can it be this lonely?
Is this all we get for our lives? Is love only sweeter when one of us dies?

Then I knew that our love was just a car crash away
I knew that our love was just a car crash away
I knew that our love was just a car crash away
I knew that our love was just a car crash away

Love is a fire
Burns down all that it sees
Burns down everything
Everything you think burns down
Everything you say
Love is a fire
Burns down all that it sees
Burns down everything
Everything you think burns down
Everything you say
Love is a fire
Burns down all that it sees
Burns down everything
Everything you think burns down
Everything you say

I knew that our love was just a car crash away
Knew that our love was just a car crash away, just a car crash away

Everything you think
Everything you think
Everything you think burns down
Everything you say

Love is a fire
Burns down all that it sees
Burns down everything
Everything you think burns down
Everything you say

    General CommentIt's not about dita, it's about Jennifer Syme's death:

    General CommentThinking maybe he knew after being with Dita awhile it would end. He has recently stated that in order for this album to exist he had to end one relationship (Dita) and create another (Evan)

    General CommentI partly agree with "DarrenMM" To me it seems like he realized a major prospective on marriage once his fell apart, yes a "car crash away" could mean something like cheating or even an actual death in the relationship that could break it or make it worth it... I love this song

    General CommentIt's a brilliant song; the rhythm is catchy, while his vocals have improved dramatically. Did you know the vocals within this particular tune were recorded when Manson why laying on the floor within his lounge-room? Yep! he had a mid-air microphone where the cord was hanging on a hook in the ceiling.

    In relation to "I knew that our love was, just a car crash away", I believe he's referring to when he, and Dita, first met (she was stripping). He's actually discriminating her in a way by quietly making the point that her profession is pathetic.

    I could be wrong, people help me out?

    General CommentI think to Manson his marriage was perfect but then after a while or maybe some sort of incident, he realized his love was "just a car crash away". Meaning that it was soon to end and fall apart.

    Is this all we get
    For our lives?
    Is love only sweet when
    One of us dies?

    Maybe he's saying that she could be the end of him and Dita will only appreciate everything after it's all gone...

    Probably not even close, but just a thought
