Marilyn Manson Don't Pray For Me Lyrics

Last updated: 12/01/2009 10:00:00 AM

An extra mile to cross the line
I kiss my Judas one more time
I die
For your sin

Life is simple, life is sweet
The perspective from down on your knees
Will kill
You from within

Fortune and fame,
Torture and shame
Think twice before you speak
Glory and blame,
It’s all the same
My gain is your defeat

Don’t pray for me
I don’t need your sympathy
I don’t want your god protecting me
Don’t pray for me
I don’t want your empathy
I don’t need your savior saving me
Don’t pray for me

I don’t care what book you quote
Your poison is my antidote
I don’t burn
And I don’t bleed

Wrap that guilt up deep inside
Religion as an alibi
What more
Could you need?

Fortune and fame
Torture and shame
You still don’t understand
Glory and blame
It’s all the same
Some things go hand in hand


Don’t pray for me
I don’t need your sympathy
I don’t want your god protecting me
Don’t pray for me
I don’t want your empathy
I don’t need your savior saving me
Don’t pray for me

Sacrifice the innocence
Will you eliminate the decadence?
You celebrate my enemy
We’ll blind your eyes and steal your dreams

Don’t pray for me
I don’t need your sympathy
I don’t want your god protecting me
Don’t pray for me
I don’t want your empathy
I don’t need your savior saving me
Don’t pray for me

Don’t pray for me
I don’t need your sympathy
I don’t want your god protecting me
Don’t pray for me
I don’t want your empathy
I don’t need your savior saving me
Don’t pray for me

a thought | Reviewer: SH | 2/5/09

I'm very fond of this song. On a poetic level, it's excellent--it feels so natural rythmically.
I think it must have been a very personal thought for him. You see the Antichrist motif here, which he takes personally. There's almost a sort of desparation in the words...
