"Into the Fire" as written by and Brian Warner Chris Vrenna....
This is the film, close to the third act and the misery
It's not rain, you rapist werewolves
It's God pissing down on you
We'll die alone
Cause I'll break off my own arms
Sharpen my bones
Stab you once for each time I thought of you
Trying to take something
You'll never be good enough to even look upon

It's better to push something away that's slipping
Than to risk being dragged down

If you want to hit bottom
Don't bother to try taking me with you
I won't answer if you call
Two heartbeats ended in hell
Trying to break your fall

This isn't a mob, won't need to change the names
Everyone around you
Has murdered someone, something sacred
Isn't one nail without dirt under it
Isn't any white cotton panties that aren't soaked and stained red

It's better to push something away that's slipping
Than to risk being dragged down

If you want to hit bottom
Don't bother to try taking me with you
I won't answer if you call
Two heartbeats ended in hell
Trying to break your fall

Into the fire
Into the fire
Into the fire
Into the fire
Fire, oh
Into the fire
Fire, oh
Into the fire
Fire, oh
Into the fire
Fire, oh

    General CommentThese are the correct lyrics:



    This the film
    Close to the third act and the misery
    It's not rain, you rapist werewolves
    It's God pissing down on you
    We'll die alone, 'cause I'll break off my own arms
    Sharpen my bones
    Stab you once for each time I thought of you
    Trying to take something you'll never be good enough
    To even look upon

    It's better to push something when's slipping
    Than to risk being dragged down

    If you want to hit bottom
    Don't bother to try taking me with you
    I won't answer if you call
    Two heartbeats down in, in hell
    Trying to break your fall

    This isn't a mob
    Won't need to change the names
    Everyone around you
    Has murdered someone, something sacred
    Isn't one nail without dirt under it
    Isn't any white cotton panties
    That aren't soaked and stained red

    It's better to push something when it's slipping
    Than to risk being dragged down

    If you want to hit bottom
    Don't bother to try taking me with you
    I won't answer if you call
    Two heartbeats down in, in hell
    Trying to break your fall

    Into the fire
    Into the fire
    Into the fire
    Into the fire
    Fire, ohh
    Into the fire
    Fire, ohh
    Into the fire
    Fire, ohh
    Into the fire
    Fire, ohh

    General CommentThis is the film
    Close to the third act and misery
    this isn't rain
    you rapist werewolves
    this is god pissing down on you
    don't worry you won't die alone
    ill break off my own arms
    and sharpen my bones and
    stab you once for each time
    i thought of you
    trying to take something
    you'll never be good enough
    to even look upon

    its better to push something when it's slipping
    Than to to risk being dragged down

    if you want to hit bottom
    don't bother taking me with you
    and i won't answer if you call
    i'm two heartbeats ahead in hell
    trying to break your fall

    this isn't a mob
    i won't need to change
    to change the names
    everyone around you had murdered
    someone's something sacred
    there isn't one nail without dirt under it
    there isn't any "white cotton panties"
    that aren't soaked and stained red.

    its better to push something when it's slipping
    Than to to risk being dragged down

    if you want to hit bottom

    and i won't answer your call
    i'm two heartbeats ahead in hell
    trying to break your fall.

    General Commentto me, it's about letting go of a relationship that was doomed from the start, mainly because the other person was more than you thought you deserved. You gotta let it end because it will anyway.

    General Comment"It's not rain, you rapist werewolves
    It's God pissing down on you"

    Manson is so good at dotting the i-s! I think the song is dedicated to the church and his early intense religious education.

    General CommentI love the images he creates with this:

    We'll die alone 'cause I'll break off my own arms
    Sharpen my bones
    And stab you once for each time
    I thought of you

    x) Can you imagine an armless man trying to sharpen something?

    Song MeaningThis song is about the coming of the fruition of the album, that being before he had confused love with dependence and he confused desire with weakness; and by the end of this album he no longer confused those things. And so, he felt strong on his own even though he wanted her but didn't need her; and so since she wasn't all too committed to him he'd decided it was time to let go.

    General CommentThis is one of the two songs that Manson wrote on christmas (the other is If I Was Your Vampire, in 2006). He wrote it in 2008, after cutting himself 158 times with a razor blade for every unanswered call from his girlfriend at that moment, Evan Rachel Wood. He said:

    "The record is really about the metaphor that exists in all great and historic literature: Lucifer falling from heaven, losing his wings, and wanting to fall in love with someone who is mortal. [It's about] the inability to find love, so you want to destroy everyone else's love. that's the story of my life. By the time I got to Into the Fire, I thought that was the last song on the record. It has a very epic musical ending with one of the greatest guitar solos in music. Twiggy blew me away; it made me cry. I thought this was the way the record has to end, this is the way my life is, at the edge of no real hope. I've become a total cold-hearted monster..."

    Maybe the message in this song is that is better to be alone or on your own, than in bad company. Especially in the pre-chorus:

    "It's better to push something when it's slipping than to risk being dragged down"

    I think the chorus is the Wood's point of view about this:

    If you want to hit bottom
    Don't bother to try taking me with you
    I won't answer if you call

    she doesn't want to be in his deppresive state with him. And "I won't answer if you call" it's an obvious reference to the 158 calls.

    another line that makes us understand the song is:

    "You'll never be good enough to even look upon"

    he's telling her that she will never realize how he is suffering, and that she will never care about that.
