Marilyn Manson 1996 Lyrics

Last updated: 09/01/2013 07:09:42 AM

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
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 what I hate about me

Anti-people, now you've gone too far
Here's your Antichrist Superstar

Anti-money, anti-hate
Anti-things I fucked and ate
Anti-cop and anti-fun
Here is my anti-president gun
Anti-Satan, anti-black
The 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 what I hate about me

Anti-people, now you've gone too far
Here's your Antichrist Superstar

Anti-people, now you've gone too far
Here's your Antichrist Superstar

This is where your faith ends

Nothing, nothing's safe!
Nothing, nothing's safe!
Nothing, nothing's safe!
Nothing, nothing's safe!

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

Anti-people, now you've gone too far
Here's your Antichrist Superstar

Anti-people, now you've gone too far
Here's your Antichrist Superstar

Thanks to David Bowie for submitting 1996 Lyrics.

Iran!!plz READ this | Reviewer: Shadi(in English=Happiness) | 9/1/13

well to be honest,it is not a review but a complaint!before anything i must say that I`m an Iranian girl that really loves Brian.u know,the only person that I like and also love,in this great big white world,is Brian Warner not even my parents or cute boys...but unfortunately,in my country he is considered as a big Satan!!!!!!! and because of lack of freedom,I`ll never be able to listen to his wonderful sound and music in public.ah what shall I do? of my great wishes is that I can visit dear Brian someday before I die but I`m hopeless about it because Brian is not gonna travel to Iran(and of course it`s his right)and I can`t go to America because I`m alone...the reason I chose this page for putting my complaint in,is that I was born in 1996.I wanna say something to Americans-appreciate your freedom even about choosing what to wear and also appreciate living in Brian`s country.I really wish I could see him.....

The antichrist is a head on a multi-headed hydra that is all but dead. The people heal it and thus the rebirth. It's last visit was when Hitler was trying to take over the world. This is well known and documented. Mechanical Animals really does not fit in the claimed trilogy. Or not in a way that I currently understand. I understand how Holywood is part of it. But there is no real deep meaning here. There was but he lost it I think along the way. btw I saw them play here a few months back. Still worth seeing IMHO despite the nay sayers. Manson claims it is a trilogy. I'd love to see how the pop filled Mechanical Animals fits the bill. Maybe humans heal the antichrist through mindlessness eating at the public trough of the media and having no unique thoughts in their head.

you are all wrong. | Reviewer: Anonymous | 5/16/12

this is the part where omega(from mechanical animals or "adam" if you will) finally reveals his plan to destroy the world as the antichrist.notice how in the previous song on the cd "antichrist superstar" it ends with "your anti-christ is almost here" well this song is saying that the antichrist IS here...and this is what he's doing at the present moment(1996) when the song is released.

@ the Anonymous reviewer who is a bible thumper | Reviewer: The Antichrist | 5/23/11

Manson was raised Catholic, the original form of Christianity. He see's the wrongs in the perverted form of this religion for he was raised on it. Your one true church of christ is truely perverted for power, and money much like the rest of this fascist world.

@Cheesy | Reviewer: Anonymous | 11/11/09

Guy, please... Get yourself a mind. perverted Christianity? WHAT Christianity d'you talk'bout? Maybe the jehovah witnessess' or protestant one... But you cannot say that about the True and Only Christ's Church.

Anti-people=pro-christian | Reviewer: Cheesy | 3/4/09

I grew up a hard core "Christ Lover", and this song has shown me that in order to love Christ you must hate the rest of the world. For this reason I had become "Anti-people", unless people were "just a copy of an imitation" (from another of Manson's songs). Through this song I have discovered how perverted Christianity truly can be. Although I have to admit, some christians are so filled with love that they could find it in their heart to love even Marilyn Manson (as he depicts himself as the anti-christ).

--Christ was against killing, however God's agenda is more important than life itself!

Brilliant! | Reviewer: Mr Riddles | 5/8/08

Oho! Mr Riddles likes this song! He likes the awesome vocals and the "ballacious" guitar riffs! Oho!
All jokes aside, this song is f*cking epic... Its better then Sweet Dreams (Somehow) and is just as good as
The Beautiful People. Manson isnt my favorite band, I'm into extreme sh1t. Yet this song is great. Its one of the
highlights of the Antichrist Superstar album. Its also fun to play it on guitar...
Dig the song or die.

mr. manson | Reviewer: john Morana | 12/7/07

yes , I agree. This song is like so personal for me. to me it's about not feeling like you exist and unlike other people you dont do a damn thing with ur life for so long till it becomes u and u hate ur self and are so jelous of others and till this emptiness forms full of nothingness it's just there and this is like such a powerful song it's like saying this is how I feel , it's complete ambivalince and oblivion and it's like trying to let go of all that the only way u know how stating this is how far it's gone so wtf

damn | Reviewer: jj | 4/11/07

this is my most favorite fucking song by him!!!! I love the beautiful antichrist!!!
