The Dope Show Lyrics - Marilyn Manson

Review The Song (38)



The drugs they say
Make us feel so hollow
We love in vain
Narcissistic and so shallow
The cops and queers
To swim you have to swallow
Hate today
No love for tomorrow

We're all stars now in the dope show
We're all stars now in the dope show

There's lots of pretty, pretty ones
That want to get you high
But all the pretty, pretty Ones
Will leave you low
And blow your mind

We're all stars now in the dope show
sponsored links
We're all stars now in the dope show

They love you when you're on all the covers
When you're not then they love another
They love you when you're on all the covers
When you're not then they love another¨

The drugs they say
Are made in California
We love your face
We'd really like to sell you
The cops and queers
Make good-looking models
I hate today
Who will I wake up with tomorrow?

There's lots of pretty, pretty Ones
That want to get you high
But all the pretty, pretty Ones
Will leave you low
And blow your mind
They love you when you're on all the covers
When you're not then they love another
They love you when you're on all the covers
When you're not then they love another

There's lots of pretty, pretty Ones
That want to get you high
But all the pretty, pretty Ones
Will leave you low
And blow your mind
They'll blow your mind

We're all stars now in the dope show
We're all stars now in the dope show

pretty accurate | Reviewer: Anonymous | 10/26/13

These lyrics, they're pretty accurate. Also, I love Manson and Alice and all them guys. All the hatred and disgust people express when talking about their shows, music and videos is cool too as well as their appearance. It just proves they've accomplished what they're going for. It's SHOCK ROCK, that's the point! It's shocking and thought provoking just like it's intended to be. They're extremely intelligent people, they know what they're doing. And its amazing. Shocking performances, great music and awesome videos with great messages.

will you marry me? | Reviewer: amber | 4/22/12

I have had a deep obsession with Brian since I was five I'm fourteen and I've always loved his music and his personality and the messages in his music I think about him every day and night I have millions of notebooks filled withdrawings and pictures my mom says my obsession is unnatural and weird but I don't care I never had a boyfriend just in case I ever meet him

To the reviewer below me:
You're a moron. Art is not about beauty. Art can be anything and often art is intentionally disturbing and/or repulsive, if you don't understand that, then you really have no place making comments on art.

hi! | Reviewer: Anonymous | 6/27/11

with my all respect to all...
i really think that you guys mix between art and creativity...no doubt he is creative...and yes he deliver a message ...but he is not an artist... because art is a about beauty ... I like he songs ... and i watch his video clips as long as I 'm not goin to eat later...

Dead Junkie x | Reviewer: April | 8/9/10

Honestly, I've been listening to Marilyn Manson for years now. And I still think he's absolutely amazing. I like his older stuff more, but he's come up with some really good new songs as well. Anyone who talks shit about Manson is
just jealous that he's got extreme creativity, and that he's famous for being himself. Not some fake fuck, like most bands or music artists. Marilyn Manson's music is not only unique and badass, but it's life-like. I love him. Manson and Rob Zombie are the fucking best. (:

luv u MM | Reviewer: Caitlyn | 5/27/10

y is there so much hate for MM? He's amazing + he's a person just like anybody else. u know what's cool about Marilyn Manson, Alice Cooper, and lots of other bands just like them? they're not scared to think outside the box. they don't care what other people thing. MM is a genius, and people who think otherwise are jerks.
MM 4 ever!!

Smart and deep | Reviewer: Micke | 9/24/09

I began to listen to Marilyn Manson when one of my friends gave me his biography, she thought I was like him. I read it and she was right, afterwards I started to listen to him and Marilyn’s music is all that I listen to now, it is so deep, critical and he’s so smart. I don't think I can name anyone smarter than him. I'm not into to drugs and such, I study pretty hard, I'm not normal. But I wanted to say that someone that studies much listens to him to and loves his works.

The Dope Show | Reviewer: berga | 9/14/09

If you are into drugs and have a couple of years experience then you see that The Dope Show isn't just empty words to make money cuz everything he says is true and it's a really powerful meaning of the song.

<3 | Reviewer: ericka | 8/25/09

Well first of all I <3 MM HE IS AWSOME, and anyone who thinks otherwise is very wrong he's just a regular person expressing his creative side through music just because some people think his lyrics are vile does not mean that he himself is a bad person it's just lyrics and songs made to make money if your gunna take it that offensively then don't listen to him, I'm sure you have bigger problems in your life and that are going on in the world to worry about some song made by a guy

pimp shit song | Reviewer: jaysgotskillz | 6/21/09

i think this song is beast, but even if i didnt like it like that one guy on page 2, i dont think id outrightly express it to a bunch of people that i believed to be violent, drug abusing satanists. even if he is anonymous...

stop talking shit you ignorrants | Reviewer: silvie | 4/30/09

i've learnt many things about marilyn manson and i could say that most people keep saying bullshit about him. the guy is amazing!! i mean, if anybody just reads his lyrics i think they will understand his true beliefs. i think we all know he adores women, is NOT a gay despite his clothes, he thinks people would be much more beautiful without make-up, he hates how people behave and all the staff, "the golden age of grotesque" for example, i mean just read his biography and THEN judge.

Appearances can be deceiving | Reviewer: Monroe Doctrine | 3/16/09

Just because he sings about drugs violence etc. Does not necesarrily mean he's promoting it. Maybe its the listeners that are too simple to analyze the deeper meaning of what he's saying for example:
There's lots of pretty, pretty ones
Who want to get you high
But all the pretty, pretty ones
Will leave you low
And blow your mind

Clearly he's not promoting drug use. He's saying that although the alure may be strong, and it may seem right in the end you will be left low with a messed up head.

Check yourself before you wreck yourself. Maybe Marilyn is not the problem. Maybe its the kids that interpret his music wrong. OR the parents should've helped them understand the music, rather than just throwing out the CD's.

One time for ya mind

no comprimise | Reviewer: Generously Given | 3/6/09

This songs very interesting to me in a beautiful way. Following events pinned on MM's career at the time, I think this song really shows what he's all about as an artist. I love *in more than one way,* how he takes the concepts of birth, life, and death and compliments them with no compromise, and yet a shocking contrast. As such his music can be very hard to listen too. Get on with your lives. Move a long. You found your way to this site and now you should know there's nothing to see here. We miss you.

Question | Reviewer: Danielle | 11/18/08

I love MM. He is pretty bad ass.

I am struggling with one line in his lyrics though... Why does he say "cops and queers"? They seem like such an odd paring. In his music video the cops are wearing pink outfits and kissing each other. I just can't tell what his social comment on this matter is. Can you?
