"Coma Black" as written by and Brian/white Warner....
My mouth was a crib and it was growing lies
It didn't know what love was on that day
My heart's a tiny blood clot, I picked at it
It never heals it never goes away

I burned all the good things in the eden eye
We were too dumb to run too dead to die
I burned all the good things in the eden eye
We were too dumb to run too dead to die

This was never my world
You took the angel away
I'd kill myself to make everybody pay

This was never my world
You took the angel away
I'd kill myself to make everybody pay

I would have told her then, she was the only thing
That I could love in this dying world
But the simple word of love itself
Already died and went away

This was never my world
You took the angel away
I'd kill myself to make everybody pay

This was never my world
You took the angel away
I'd kill myself to make everybody pay

I burned all the good things in the eden ye
We were too dumb to run too dead to die
I burned all the good things in the eden eye
We were too dumb to run too dead to die

This was never my world
You took the angel away
I'd kill myself to make everybody pay

This was never my world
You took the angel away
I'd kill myself to make everybody pay

This was never my world
You took the angel away
I'd kill myself to make everybody pay

This was never my world
You took the angel away
I'd kill myself to make everybody pay

Her heart's a bloodstained egg
We didn't handle with care
It's broken and bleeding
And we can never repair

Her heart's a bloodstained egg
We didn't handle with care
It's broken and bleeding
And we can never repair
And we can never repair

    General CommentMansons isn't anti-christ because he's satanic or anything, he's anti-religion because he's against what it represents. And wanting a guy to die a horrible death, that's not very Christian.

    General CommentI think this is about a guy who never felt like he belonged an the one person he actually cared about died an he feels love is dead too so now he wants to kill himself to 'make everyone else pay' because his 'angel' is dead

    General CommentI'd had the impression that Coma Black was also about the end of his five year (?) relationship with his girlfriend, whom he'd labeled the source of a lot of inspiration for him (she also got him a lot of mainstream attention, given her wholesome image). The cries of, "you took the angel away" seem to be lamenting her loss.

    General CommentThis song helped me through a really tough time in my life.. I related it to everything that was wrong. I was actually (seriously.. it makes me feel rather stupid) going to kill myself over a guy, and I was going to kill myself to make him pay. All hail Manson.

    General Commentwell first of all i just have to say that anyone who compares Slipknot to Marilyn Manson and especially Tool, should be shot. Marilyn Manson are thousands of times better than Slipknot, and there aren't words for how much better Tool is. But anyways, i agree that the angel is everything good that Marilyn had to offer but nobody would except it (or him) so it went away. i love, "i'll kill myself to make everybody pay," because who hasn't felt like that. and i think "i would have told her then she was the only thing that i could love...the simple word of love itself already died and went away," is Marilyn saying that he loved her, but he couldn't put it into words because every time he did, he got shot down. And now when someone might have returned the love, he didn't have the strength to tell her, which eventually pushed her away.
    i love this song. it's so sad, but beautiful.

    General CommentJust thought I'd note that in the TV series on Channel 4 (UK) "Teenage Kicks" (its like a documentry that looks at teenage life in the UK - sex, drugs, music, withcraft there was even a bit about vampirism) in the opening credits the camera is in a classroom and on one of the desks is carved the lyric "This was never my world, you took the angel away" I'm a big manson fan and i just thought that was quite cool :)

    General CommentOkay, i checked out your site, it's basically just calims that he doens't care about his fans and that he hates Christianity. Great, i can claim that Geezer Butler has 14 testicles and only played in Black Sabbath to piss of his father who wanted him to become a Marine Biologist, but that doesn't make it true.

    What's funny about the site is that he says Manosn fans ure mindless drones, but then expects you to balieve him based on the fact that MM says 'fuck' a lot, instead of on any actual evidence. He also makes a bunch of wildly over-generalizing claims, none of which have any factual basis.

    The fact that you refer to such idiocy to back up your statements just re-enforces the fact that i'm right and you're an idiot.

    General Commentokk philadelphia eagles. I've just checked out ur site, and I have some comments to point out.
    First Paragraph analasis:
    " I have nothing against Marilyn Manson at all."
    ovbiously you do, or else you would not call your page "marilyn manson sucks"

    Second paragraph analisis:
    Not all his fans are mindless goth zombies. I am not a mindless goth zombie. I get good marks, I'm a happy person, I have a job and take care of myself and have my own opinions, and I'm a huge fan.
    Those things you say people yell, can be heard at any concert.
    Maybe the actions people do at a concert are similar, but the whole concept is a different thing. people do not belive manson created the earth and do not belive that he will be responsible for what happens after they die. They worship him in a completely different way.

    Paragraph three:
    you are being steriotypacal. for most fans, buying cds and going to concerts is enuf. dumbass.

    Paragraph four:
    Marilyn manson is alot deeper than backstreet boys. he's super intelegent, and his songs dont all sound the same. they are not all about how his girlfriend dumped him and how he wants sex. (although some are, he has loads of others)

    Paragraph five:
    no, the top of your page clearly says "marilyn manson sucks" not "I dont like goth people who use this page to scare their parents"

    Paragraph six:
    Marilyn manson is completely different from alice cooper. mayb he is all in this for the money, but that doesnt really matter at all. we agree with his views, we dont think he loves us induvidually.

    Paragraph seven:
    YOU ARE COMPLETELY JUST TAKING LITTLE BITS FROM A SONG. YOU DO NOT SEE THE WHOLE PICTURE. THE SONGS MEAN SOMETHING AS A WHOLE. ARE YOU TOO STUPID TO SEE THAT? THEY HAVE A COMPLETELY DIFFERENT STORY METAPHORICALY. WHEN HE SAYS "when I'm god everyone dies" he does not litterelly mean that he is god and wants to kill everyone.

    what the fuck are you guys on?
