"I Have to Look Up Just to See Hell" as written by and Jeordie White Chris Vrenna....
The fruit is speechless
Before our sorceries
The party has just begun
Time lapse and dancing and rotting in place,
And we have reached the high end of low
The high end of low
The high end of low

You can take me,
The grave can take me
The earth is waiting to eat us alive
I love you damaged,
I need human wreckage
I have to look up
Just to see Hell

Fallen, fallen, fallen from grace
Now for you
This is why you should run
Fallen, fallen, fallen from grace
Now for you
This is why you should run

The core of a woman
Is where her body
Chooses to revolve like a corpse
Centrifugal, melted under the skin,
Bacteria
Into the napalm heart I explode,
I explode
I explode

You can take me,
The grave can take me
The earth is waiting to eat us alive
I love you damaged,
I need human wreckage
I have to look up
Just to see Hell

Fallen, fallen, fallen from grace
Now for you
This is why you should run
Fallen, fallen, fallen from grace
Now for you
This is why you should run

The light shines in the darkness
And the darkness will never understand it
The light shines in the darkness
And the darkness will never understand it
The light shines in the darkness
And the darkness will never understand it
The light shines in the darkness
And the darkness will never understand it

You can take me,
The grave can take me
The earth is waiting to eat us alive
I love you damaged,
I need human wreckage
I have to look up
Just to see Hell

You can take me,
The grave can take me
The earth is waiting to eat us alive
I love you damaged,
I need human wreckage
I have to look up
Just to see Hell

    Song MeaningManson has stated in interviews that this song was partly inspired by Milton's "Paradise Lost," which is an epic 12-book poem about the fall of Lucifer. "Into the Fire" was also partly inspired by the poem. It is a recurring theme in the album, not being able to have something (in this case love), so you spend your time trying to destroy everyone else's.

    General Commentthis song is one of a kind off of the new album.
    it doesn't relate to any other manson song,
    and not that it doesn't fit in on the album,
    but it's really really different.
    i like it alot though,
    the fallen part gives me chills.

    i'm not sure what it means.
    i'm horrible at translating songs, let alone manson's.
    but this song is one of my favourite off the album.

    General Commenti very much doubt he regrets being himself.. mabey he's just learning more about himself.
    "the light shines in the darkness
    and the darkness will never understand it"
    possibly seeing light in places he didn't before because of a woman.

    General Commentthe light shines in the darkness and the darkness will never understand it
    is also a bible verse John 1:5 which i find particularly interesting because there is a song "15".

    General Comment"fallen, fallen, fallen from grace"
    "forbidden from Heaven and useless in Hell"

    I really hope MM isn't going to convert to Jesus, because this album sounds like he is kind of regretting being himself.

    General Commentthis is not true, im just throwing out some kind of idea. but maybe its an atheist point of view, of not having a clear vision of what ever god,heaven,hell might be? i dont want to bash any atheist i respect you, but i have never really met a atheist happy being atheist. they seem to have used it as a way to either get revenge on a negitive life, or even try and ignore it, if your going to comment me back, please make it subjective and not defensive,
    i dont see what would be wrong with manson converting to jesus, everything he does he puts that MM twist on it that makes it sound sick lolol, i mean GOAG wasnt as good, but all the thoughts and beleifs that could be thrown into the golden age before nazi germany,,,that shit was clever.
