(light a candle for the sinners,
set the world on fire...)

Anti-choice and anti-girl
I am the anti-flag unfurled
Anti-white and anti-man
I got the anti-future plan
Anti-fascist, anti-mod
I am the anti-music god
Anti-sober, anti-whore
There will never be enough of anti-more

I can't believe in the things
That don't believe in me
Now it's your turn to see misanthropy
Anti people now you've gone too far
(Here's your) antichrist superstar

Anti-money and anti-hate
Anti things I fucked and ate
Anti-cop and anti-fun
Here is my anti-president gun
Anti-Satan, anti-black
Anti-world is on my back
Anti-gay and anti-dope
I am the faggot anti-pope

I can't believe in the things
That don't believe in me
Now it's your turn to see misanthropy
Anti people now you've gone too far
Antichrist superstar
Anti people now you've gone too far
(Here's your) antichrist superstar

(This is where your faith ends)
1996!
1996!
1996!
1996!

Anti-peace and anti-life
Anti-husband and anti-wife
Anti-song and anti-me
I don't deserve a chance to be

Anti people now you've gone too far
Antichrist superstar
Anti people now you've gone too far
(Here's your) antichrist superstar

    General CommentNo! I wasn't bashing him :) I like his music very much!! When I said "Silly Isn't it?", I was talking about the notion of being anti-everything. I feel this song shows how the notion is silly, you can't be anti-everything, or you'll also be anti-you.
    "anti song and anti me
    I don't deserve a chance to be"
    This is an excellent song!
    BTW, anyone know where I can find info on the new album o_O ?
    :)

    Song MeaningWow, I'm shocked at the number of comments asking what this song has to do with the year 1996. Kids, really?? Historical context:

    Antichrist Superstar was released about a month before the 1996 presidential election in the US. The 1996 election was every bit as insane as the 2012 election with independently wealthy madman, Ross Perot, throwing his hat in the ring. (I watched all the damn debates live on TV.)

    So you get this "rise of the Antichrist" theme through the whole album that culminates in the beginning with Irresponsible Hate Anthem, which was said to have been recorded live on February 14, 1997 - four months AFTER the album was released. Meaning recorded live in front of a crowd of the Antichrist Superstar's followers.

    This song is kind of a reaction to the BS rhetoric that gets thrown around in a political campaign. It's the anti-this, anti-that taken to the level of complete absurdity. And then: Anti-people, now you've gone to far. Here's your Antichrist Superstar. Meaning you did this, you made me, you brought on the Apocalypse with your BS.

    General CommentThis shows how Marilyn Manson is sick and tired of the world, a sadness which is mixed with anger.

    Anti-choice and anti-girl
    I am the anti-flag unfurled
    Anti-white and anti-man
    I got the anti-future plan

    * Anti-girl and Anti-man

    Anti-gay and anti-dope
    I am the faggot anti-pope

    ** He hates gays and he's a gay who hates pope

    * and ** are just two examples which show he's hating both sides, which means he hates all!

    Anti-Satan, anti-black
    Anti-world is on my back

    *** Anti-"World is On My Back" :
    There is an old expression in some religions which says: "The god has put the responsibility of the world on humans shoulders". this means Anti-Religion but if we know Marilyn Manson we should understand this means he's Anti-"Every thing come from past such as tradition or religion".

    later, i will continue explaining the song more.

    Song MeaningThis song is obviously about how he is correcting all of those who see him as the antichrist, by saying that he is anti-everything, even if it comes to a cotradiction.

    Anti gay and anti dope
    I am the faggot anti pope

    is a golden example of this.

    He shows that he is more than the antichrist, or in some peoples eyes, less.

    Song MeaningThis is the song about the disintegrator putting his plans for society in action, as he is now acting as a tyrant and he begins his revengance on the beautiful people.

    The latent hatred that had built inside for the beautiful people is finally unleashed as their society had made of him a monster.
