The Nobodies Lyrics - Marilyn Manson

Review The Song (24)



Today I'm dirty
I want to be pretty
Tomorrow I know, I'm just dirt
Today I'm dirty
I want to be pretty
Tomorrow I know, I'm just dirt

We are the nobodies
Wanna be somebodies
We're dead, they'll know just who we are
We are the nobodies
Wanna be somebodies
We're dead, they'll know just who we are

Yesterday I was dirty
Wanted to be pretty
I know now that I'm forever dirt
Yesterday I was dirty

Wanted to be pretty
I know now that I'm forever dirt

We are the nobodies
Wanna be somebodies
We're dead, they'll know just who we are
We are the nobodies
Wanna be somebodies
We're dead, they'll know just who we are

Some children died the other day
We feed machines and then we pray
puked up and down in morbid faith
You should have seen the ratings that day
Some children died the other day
We fed machines and then we prayed
puked up and down in morbid faith
You should have seen the ratings that day

We are the nobodies
Wanna be somebodies
We're dead, they'll know just who we are
We are the nobodies
Wanna be somebodies
We're dead, they'll know just who we are
We are the nobodies
Wanna be somebodies
we're dead, they'll know just who we are
We are the nobodies
Wanna be somebodies
We're dead, they'll know just who we are

The Song IS good | Reviewer: Marcela | 2/10/11

this is a melodic, amazing and very sad song. Seems like he managed to express the despair so many people feel. And yes is inevitable to think about the Columbine tragedy, maybe his song actually was about Eric and Dylan....the thing is, good music will always be good no matter how dark the subject, and if like Marilyn´s it happens to stimulate the mind too, well...wonderful!

Re: The discussion in reviews | Reviewer: Chloe S | 5/14/10

Of course this song doesn't have a positive sound to it! It's in reference to events like the Columbine school shootings and how the media encourages things like that from 'the nobodies who wanna be somebodies' because everyone will know who you are, and they'll make a load of cash off it.

This is a truely great song in my opinion, with an important point. No one listening to Marilyn Manson turns to listening to it for the positive upbeat sound so discussing how it may not fit that and if that makes it all negative is pointless. In the genre both he and this song occupy, it's a very good piece of music.

(Reference: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G6n5Oi4714o - appologise for linking to an O'Reilly Factor interview and yes I know the lyric quoted isn't from this song but the reference is obvious)

love this song | Reviewer: anthony | 12/3/09

this is one of my favorite Manson songs. i love how he's different. he doesnt sit there and give you the total cliche sugar coated lyrics. he tells the same thing these cliche mainstream bands do but he tells it in a much more truthful way.

about the columbine shooting. yes they did blame Manson for it because they had no one else to blame. and when they werent blaming Manson they were blaming the DOOM games. when the media has no one to blame they just pick someone to make a story so you forget about the truth for a little bit. its how it all works. i would know because i write for magazines.

Hey, "Manson=ridiculous," | Reviewer: Anonymous | 11/14/09

Yeah, he might be able to put out a more "positive vibe"...and do what everyone else does: pretending like everythings okay. He is the oppposite of disturbing; you are disturbing if you think what he says isn't true. He is smart--smarter than you appear to be. Anyone can put out a more positive vibe, and they do; but look, now everone's blind to the things that are srcewed up with this place. People need to stop being so narrow-minded. Your entitled to your opinion, and I'm entitled to mine. But saying someone you DON'T KNOW is disturbing is just wrong.

Review... | Reviewer: Gaz | 8/12/09

Wouldn't normally do this but I figured this one was worth it.
I’ve just spent a couple of minutes reading the views below mine. Surely, everyone is entitled to their own opinions? Main difference is, Manson puts his opinions into his music and makes money from it, you dumb fuckers that are sitting in front of you monitors all day long typing shit on lyric sites should really take a page from Manson’s book and try to do something with your lives. I've gotta admit, he's not the BEST artist around but he's damn good at what he does. He's unique. He fights for what he believes and damn, I think that alone is worth recognition.

people are ridiculous | Reviewer: rachael | 4/11/09

okay first of all i think its ridiculous that just because someone is different from you or believes in something different, you have to critize them. thats what is wrong with this world.. its all you close minded assholes. im 15 yrs old and dont go doing all of that. so all of you grow the fuck up!! i think marilyn manson is okay. i dont really prefer his music. some of his songs are amazing but i dont believe in hell, devil, etc.. its just some of his lyrics are true. not everything in this world is "postive". so get use to the fact that this world is mostly negitive and take the dick outta your ass!

Oh, Goddess, Not Another One. | Reviewer: Marilyn Valencia | 2/22/09

Hey, "Dagger In My Heart"-
You are pathetic. You and everything you stand for is pathetic. If you say you're a Goth that means YOU AREN'T ONE. You remind me of my fucking repulsive ex-best-friend Heather DeJesus, and she's the kind of she-man you wouldn't want to be compared to. Take my advice and fucking choke.

"Positive" Vibes | Reviewer: Anonymous | 2/9/09

Throughout all these review, people keep going on about how Marilyn Manson is hateful or not positive(not that they're critiquing him) but does that really matter?

Perosnally, I don't think Manson is hateful. He is telling things as they are. He is not really being hateful, merely expressing his opinions on how fucked up the world is.

And(for the dumbshit who says Manson is ridiculous), if you want a positive influence, GO WATCH FUCKING DISNEY CHANNEL! You know why Manson does the things he does and invites the criticism? Because it makes him money.

One last thing people. I love Manson's music. I think it is great. But don't be a hypocrite and trash other kinds of music just because you like this. You can't be upset is people trash Manson if you turn around and start talking trash about the music they like. If you do that, you're no worse than the idiot who will go around YouTube to bands they hate just to talk shit. I mena, come on. Be mature.

... | Reviewer: Lemah | 9/9/08

Have any of you seen the movie bowling for columbine, After watchign that movie that is when i got respect for this man. Michael Moore ask Marilyn Manson what would you say to those kids who shot at columbine were still here. And he simply answered nothing, I would listen cause that is what no one else did. Marilyn Manson has the right to put out any vibe he wants with the music. He's not a bad guy just cause he is different, he's not postive. But who really is these days?

the bubblegummer's review | Reviewer: Anonymous | 8/19/08

The Columbine 'Guys' have names... they are Eric and Dylan! Manson wrote this song because after Columbine, because the press blamed him for there actions, (which by the way media was looking for something to place on him to try to kill his type of music because it's nothing like hannah montana and the jonas brothers) .. besides Eric and Dylan were so far out there, even if they listened to Jesus music and played Find the Pretty Cupcake, they would have still killed 13 of there classmates and teacher.

Manson is God. | Reviewer: McDooGz | 8/5/08

I F'N love this dude. Yes, his lyrics are hateful, and yes, his music is hardcore. But what he says is the truth. In one of his songs, he says, "I'm a million different things not one u no, hey i'm only so lost now, hey gotta be some one else, hey and we love the abuse 'cuz it make us feel like we are needed, i no, and i no, i wanna disappear.....disappear." That's pure genious. I listen to hardcore, and it relaxes me.

no no no no no | Reviewer: St. Claire | 4/3/08

Hey, lets not bring the makeup into this!! Gothic makeup is more beautiful than any guy can be without it. Anyway, you shouldn't assume he is a negative influence. I listen to his music to relax, and it produces not only positive feelings but inspiration in me, which is invaluable to me as an artist. As opposed to listening to retarded music like kelly clarkson's or whatever is popular now, which seriously makes me want to kill people.

Manson=ridiculous | Reviewer: Anonymous | 2/19/08

Marilyn Manson is a disturbing individual. No he didn't make the columbine guys shoot, but he could put out a more positive vibe. Instead he wants to be a psycho. He invites the criticism. Being a positive influence is the least celebrities could do. Take off the stupid make up and behave like a grown man. come on!

MARILYN MANSON IS THE GREATEST | Reviewer: Michelle | 9/27/07

I LOVE THIS SONG ESPECIALLY ALL HIS MUSIC I LISTEN TOO HE ROCKS.I LOVE HIS LYRICS I GO TO ALL HIS CONCERTS AND I NEVER GET TIRED OF THEM.
