"The Red Carpet Grave" as written by Brian Warner and Tim Skold....
They call her bulldozer speech demon
Without distractions of hope she makes
The depression business look surprisingly novel
And she's not just royal, allegedly loyal
Kind of faithful, but she has no faith in me
Inhale the damage smoothly; Paradise isn't lost, it was hiding all along

[Chorus:]
There's the ones that you love
The ones that love you
The ones that make you cum
The ones that make you come unglued, yeah

I can't turn my back on you when you're walking away
Bottomless celebrity scar, staged circuses for schoolgirls
Boys are all dressed up like a mediocre suicide omen
Here comes the red carpet grave again, and again, and again, oh man

[Chorus]

I can't turn my back on you when you're walking away
I can't turn my back on you when you're walking away
Can't turn my back on you when you're walking away

[Chorus x 2]

It's easy to beat the system
Had a hard time beating the symptoms
Had a hard time beating the symptoms

I can't turn my back on you, can't turn my back on you
I can't turn my back on you when you're walking away
Here comes the red carpet grave again, and again, and again
Here comes the red carpet grave again, and again, and again, oh man

    General CommentTo come unglued means to get all emotionally unstable and crazy, so I'm guessing the line is referring to people that make you lose control of yourself.

    General Comment"Not unfaithful but she has no faith in me"- Definately about Dita. She has said the she didn't support him in some of his activities. I think he feels she betrayed him.

    General CommentYeah, this one is definitely about Dita. I guess this is his plea as to why he went with Evan Rachel Wood. It's crazy considering how long him and Dita were together before they got married, then they couldn't even last a year with the title.

    General Commenta bulldozer is the big truck with a cyllender that flattens people, i mean stuff... usually used in construction it sometimes co-stars in violent cartoons that america is trying to make PC

    and yeah the song is about Dita, it makes me kindof want to give him a hug and say something comforting, the big sap that i am

    General CommentAnd sorry for the second post, but this is such a great song. One of my favorites off of Eat Me, Drink Me.

    Definitely about an ex of some sort. In Manson's case, it's probably Dita.
