"Doppelherz" as written by and Brian/bier Warner....
My pilot light has flickered out
You've knocked me off the hook
The person you are trying to reach is no longer here
I'm not really tall, dark and handsome
I just look that way
I'm a canvas that bleeds
And I'm painted with fingers
Childish pictures
Of you that still linger
Bury you're wasted into the moon
Hoping that it sinks to the earth soon
Bury you're wasted into the moon
I hope that it sinks into the earth soon

My pilot light has flickered out
You've knocked me off the hook
The person you are trying to reach is no longer here
I'm a canvas that bleeds
And I'm painted with fingers
Childish pictures of you that still linger
I am a VCR
A funeral of dead memory waste
I'm a VCR
A funeral of dead memory waste
You can see it on my face
I'm a VCR funeral
Of dead memory waste
You can see it on my face
My smile is a chain link fence
I dare not frown
For fear of what comes out
My smile is a chain link fence
And I dare not frown for fear of what comes out

Sing a song kitty
Sing it
Sing it kitty
Sing it
Some people don't think that Lily
Is smart enough to understand what I'm thinking
But I know if she could she would kill
Everybody that I hate, 'cause she loves me
'Cause I took care of her since she was a little baby

I am a VCR funeral of dead memory waste
You can see it in my face
As drink crawls down the esophagus staircase
Into my bowels of hell
Naked like clown faces all smeared clean
Naked like clown faces all smeared clean in the spotlight
Naked like clown faces all smeared clean in the spotlight

I'm a VCR funeral of dead memory waste you can see it on my face
Dead memory waste

Kill me, kill everyone, you can let them all die
The only thing in this world that does not die is money
You can kill me, you can kill them, you can let everyone die

The person you are trying to reach is no longer here
You have knocked me off the hook
The person you are trying to reach is no longer here
You have knocked me off the hook

You are afraid that you are no equal
While you are spending my money
You are afraid you are no equal while you are spending my money
You can kill me, you can kill them, you can let everyone die
The only thing immortal in this world is money
Why would I want to be equal with anyone?
You think you're not equal while you're spending my money
Why would I want to be equal with anyone?
Why would I want to be equal with anyone?
To be equal you have to add or subtract
And I have never liked math
To be equal you have to add or subtract
And I have never liked math
You are recognizable, as just another part in a vast machine
You are recognizable, as just another part in a vast machine
The only thing immortal in this world is money
The only thing original in this world is the way we destroy things
Everything has already been created
So we can only deal with new ways of destroying them
Everything has already been created
So we can only think of new ways of destroying them

I keep watering a dead flower
Keep watering a dead flower
Keep watering the dead flower
Keep watering a dead flower
Keep watering a dead flower
Keep watering a dead flower
Keep watering a dead flower
Keep watering a dead flower
Everything I make is a piece of plant
And some day it could have been a flower
And the things that are flowers are dead
Till I keep watering a dead flower
Keep watering a dead flower
There's not enough of me to make a bouquet
There's not enough of me to make a bouquet
Stop watering the dead flower
Stop watering a dead flower
Stop watering a dead flower

I have no balance
I am like snow
And I melt away
I have no balance and I am like snow and I melt away
I have to balance
I am like snow
And I melt away

As you are listening
I want you to know
That you are nothing
But a screen that I will project
My images of sorrow, pain and sex upon
Although there is no difference between the three
As you are listening
I want you to know
That you are nothing
But a screen that I will project
My images of sorrow, pain and sex upon
Although there is no difference between the three
As you are listening I want you to know that you are only a screen
That I project my images of sorrow, pain and suffering and sex upon
Although there is no difference between the three and the one
As you are listening I want you to know that you are nothing but a screen
That I project my images of suffering, sorrow, pain, sex
And the brief glimmer of happiness I find in the misery
Of those who are sitting in the theatre of which this screen exists
I want you to know as you are listening
That you are nothing but a screen
That I project my images of sorrow, pain, suffering, sex
And the brief glimpse of happiness I get from the misery
Of those who sit in the theatre that this screen exists will feel while they listen
The brief glimpse of happiness that I feel as
Those who sit in the theatre that this screen exists will feel as they listen

This isn't about music
This is about the difference between you and me
This isn't about music
This is about the difference between you and me
This isn't about music
This is about the difference between you and me
This isn't about music
This is about the difference between you and me
This isn't about music
This is about the difference between you and me

I am a birthday cake that we light up, blow out, cut apart and forget
I am a birthday cake that you light up, blow out, cut apart and forget
I am a birthday cake that you light up, blow out, cut apart, devour and forget
I am a birthday cake that you light up, blow out, cut apart, devour and forget

And I'm just like a holiday because I make everyone in the family cry

Our commercial should be faster because we are all just slowguns

My pain is not ashamed to repeat itself

The aspiration to save the world is a morbid phenomenon of today's youth
The aspiration to save the world is a morbid phenomenon of today's youth
The aspiration to save the world is a morbid phenomenon of today's youth

It's time someone believes what I say, I've become a lie
Each time someone believes what I say, I become a lie
Each time someone believes what I say, I become a lie
Each time someone believes what I say, I become a lie

We have reached the end of history
The only thing left is cosmetic changes
We have reached the end of history
The only thing that's left is cosmetic changes

    General CommentSome of this ended up being lyrics in their songs later on, all the way through The High End of Low. My guess is that these were some of Marilyn Manson's creative thoughts and processes as he would sit and ponder about the world.

    Slutgarden

    A song about his desire for Dita Von Teese, as back then--as he says now--he confused desire with weakness:

    "I'm a VCR funeral of dead-memory waste and
    my smile is a chainlink fence that I have put up"

    ----------

    Vodevil

    A song about his life in the media, eaten up by the counter-culture and hated on by the pop culture:

    "VIP ADD TRD violent shiny hate crime
    'Total Requested Dead' it's version point (less) downloadable suicide."

    ----------

    Devour

    A song about his confusion in love and desire, a coming off EAT ME, DRINK ME:

    "My pain is not ashamed to repeat itself."

    ...and I think that's about it. Huh. Coulda swore there was more.

    I don't think these words were intended to be his last because I can't see him doing that, really... suicide. I actually don't think he ever intended to kill himself, even if he had ever thought of it.

    General CommentThis is about self torture through means of artistic expression
    This is about self torture through means of drastic expression

    This is about sheep not hearing the meaning
    This is about sheep not seeing the meaning

    This is about the absurdity of relevance we think all of our thoughts have others
    This is about the absurdity of co-dependance we think all of our thoughts have others

    This is about sex through the eyes of darkness
    This is about text through the eyes of a liar

    This is about everything we know eventually becoming a lie
    This is about everything we think we know eventually becoming a lie
