"Eat Me, Drink Me" as written by Brian Warner and Tim Skold....
In the wasteland on the way to the Red Queen
It's no wonder our stage clothes have dreams to be famous
The trees in the courtyard are painted in blood, so I've heard
She hangs the headless upside down to drain

Eat me, drink me
Eat me, drink me
This is only a game
This is only a game

I was invited to a beheading today
I thought I was a butterfly next to your flame
A rush of panic and the lock has been raped
This is only a game
This is only a game

But then our star rushes in, feeling like a child and looking like a woman
She's been forecast with an attempt to kill herself
But the ending didn't test well

I was invited to a beheading today
I thought I was a butterfly next to your flame
A rush of panic and the lock has been raped
This is only a game
This is only a game

But then our star rushes in, feeling like a child and looking like a woman
She's been forecast with an attempt to kill herself
But the ending didn't test well

Eat me, drink me
This is only a game
This is only a game
Eat me, drink me
This is only a game
This is only a game

And now I'm picking my skin and my scales
I see my horror mirrored in your sundown of a blank stare
I see my horror mirrored in your sundown of a blank stare

Then our star rushes in, feeling like a child and looking like a woman
She's been forecast with an attempt to kill herself
But the ending didn't test well
She's been forecast with an attempt to kill herself
But the ending didn't test well
She's been forecast with an attempt to kill herself
But the ending didn't test well
She's been forecast with an attempt to kill herself
But the ending didn't test well

    General CommentAdding to what "laurelin" wrote, "This is only a game" appears in Lolita as an entry in Humbert's diary after having seduced Lolita (anotehr one of Manson's phoning it in moments, Humbert first has sex with Lolita at 6am.

    The trees in the courtyard
    Are painted in blood
    So I’ve heard
    She hangs the headless
    Upside down to drain


    In Invitation to a Beheading Cincinnatus C. is to be beheaded in a courtyard which he knows of but has never seen himself explaining the "so I've heard". The hanging upside down to drain may be inspired by this from Nabokov's Information to a Transformation "the butterfly creeps out -- and in its turn hangs down from the twig to dry." But maybe not.

    There are some unlisted lyrics in the bridge to the song - Manson's whispering when reversed says "I hear voices in my head" and below this is a chopped verse at the end of which the following can made out:

    Some people expect
    Sometimes it's hard to see
    I expected myself to but I -- didn't think
    It's an execution.

    My OpinionSomehow The first verse makes me think of the Resident Evil game franchise. "In the wasteland" = raccoon city
    "all the way to the Red Queen" = Red Queen is what Umbrella calls its supercomputer that stores all of its data it ever compiled
    "...dreams to be famous" = Wesker's need for power and fame
    "eat me, drink me" = uhhh... Zombies? They eat your flesh and drink your blood.
    That's just my ideas, I know it's actually about Alice in wonderland or whatever.

    General CommentIt's about a cannibal in Germany named Armin Meiwes. Manson said, "Although I can't relate to the relationship those two had, I found the story very compelling in a romantic way. I think a lot of people wouldn’t look at it as romantic, but it was to them in some sick way, and it is to me in some sick way, too."
