America bled to death
Electric & pregnant
Brilliant sluts & fire worship
Devouring the righteous
We were just monkeys braiding thread
We were golden needles
Diamonds and pollen
And Coma White
A manniqueen of depression
The face of a Dead Star
Fagged out for the corner
She was so soft in the bed
And the pomegranet earth spins into oblivion
The one that trembles
The one that fears
The one that suffers
The one that vomits
The one that needs
The one that trembles
The one that fears
The one that suffers
The one that vomits
The one that needs
A million scars, a million promises [8x]
And all your sad endings are planting in their gardens
And they're waiting to grow & to die like flowers do [3x]

    General Commentmanson is a poet. just because you dont understand it doesnt mean its there to sound cool.

    monkeys braining hair could easily describe how many people are stupid and they just focus on their looks as their brain sits and rots.

    General CommentPart of this songs, I believe has to do with reproduction and abnormal sexuality , "sluts and fire worship", meaningless sex, "monkeys braiding thread", thread a reference to DNA, people mixing.
    Diamons and pollen, a reference to the reproduction of plants, like in the video "Disposable teens", just like "golden needles" is a reference to Hemerocallis, a plant with a peculiar sets of chromosomes.,

    I don't think people understand this song at all.
    Most of the times Manson use some kind of riddles in his songs.

    General CommentThis song is rather intense. I'm not going to put up my definition of the song because i can't word it properly. The lines
    "And all your sad endings are planting in their gardens
    And they're waiting to grow & to die like flowers do"
    are shakespeare inspired, anyhoo

    My InterpretationI believe the song is about society (I guess?). Diamonds are a reference to most, if not, of all bees that create diamond shaped (hexagonal) honeycombs (their society) to be the most efficient storage of their collected pollen. So I think as a beehive diamond is maximum efficiency for storing honey, a diamond to us is an expensive and rare gem by demand, not that "God" made it valuable, the people (company/ business) whom horde it create its literal materialistic value. So i interpret diamonds as a root of society's structural values. The 2 interpretations of a diamond put together, right heh? A bee's society depends on the diamond design, allowing it to gain maximum honey- their objective. So then with that said, this song is also about America. American society's structural values. For instance, there is no doubt we've gone into false and never ending wars very recently in American history, maybe since the 80/90s we've been entering oil wars and it escalated in the early 2000s with 9/11. Perhaps that is our diamond (most efficient way) to collect pollen (oil) and get honey (money). However putting them all together fits, that is my interpretation as to what the diamonds and pollen mean.
