"Running To The Edge Of the World" as written by and Brian Warner Chris Vrenna....
Remember when I took you
Up to the top of the hill?
We had our knives drawn.
They were as sharp
As we were in love.
If god crossed us
We'd take all his drugs,
Burn his money
And his house down,
And wait for the fire to spread.

Sometimes hate is not enough
To turn this all to ashes.
Together as one
Against all others
Break all of our wings to
Make sure it crashes

We're running to the
Edge of the world
Running, running away
We're running to the edge of the world
I don't know if the world will end today

I had no choice,
I erased the debt of our family,
Let you say goodbye
With lips like dynamite.
And everyone
Turned their backs
Because they knew
When we held on tight
To each other,
We were something fatal,
That fell into the wrong hands.

Sometimes hate is not enough
To turn this all to ashes.
Together as one
Against all others
Break all of our wings to
Make sure it crashes

We're running to the
Edge of the world
Running, running away
We're running to the edge of the world
I don't know if the world will end today

We don't see death, we see destruction [Repeat: x2]

We're running to the
Edge of the world
Running, running away
We're running to the edge of the world
I don't know if the world will end today

See a new beginning rise behind the sun
We can't never catch up to them as fast as we run

    General CommentThis is unlike anything by Manson that I've heard. Its not to say the song is bad,because its not. I mean it in a good way. It's unbelievabley beautiful and moving, and people who don't see the beauty in this are idiots.

    General CommentThis is such a beautiful song.. I think it's about being in a relationship where no one wants to see you together, but not giving a fuck.

    "If God crossed us, we'd take all his drugs,"
    Being so in love that God hisself could not split them up... is what its saying.

    My Interpretation"sometimes hate is not enough to turn this all to ashes"
    This line makes me think he was really in love but suddenly something happened and all of that love turned into hate, but even all of that hate is not enough to make him forget about that girl... just there's no way he can forget about her, no matter how bad they ended up.

    This is for me far the most touching MM's song, I feel this song specially sincere.

    General CommentThis song leads me to believe it is about Manson's break up with Evan. I could be wrong, but parts of the song make me think so...

    For example - "Together as one against all others" - had a significant meaning to the both of them, and in their relationship

    and "i let you say goodbye with lips of dynamite,
    And everyone turns their backs because they knew,
    when we held on tight to each other,
    that we were something fatal,
    that fell into the wrong hands."

    makes it seem like she's walking away.

    That's just my personal opinion.

    General CommentThis song sounds reminiscent to the sorrow in Eat Me, Drink Me, but without the overwhelming heart-break. I'm gonna go with the break-up with Evan explanation. This song is full of sorrow, but its mutual heartache, not one sided like EMDM.

    General CommentI actually would like to think this one's about Dita. I mean I know in this album there's a mix between songs about Evan and songs about Dita. The only one I know for sure is Leave A Scar which is about Evan and is extremely insulting to her. I don't believe he could write a song that insulting about Evan one second and then write this beautiful heart warming work of art the next.
