I posted this a few days ago in the thread on the song in the main forum, and it's been bugging me ever since.


There is a rather lengthy sample in this song, which sounds like it's spoken in a woman's voice, that has been deliberately hidden in the mix. The first time I can hear it in the song is at 2:12, and the only word I can make out is "people" at 2:22. The sample ends at 2:26. I think it MIGHT be something like "how can (they, we, I) explain to (these, the) people...".

Any help?

Can anyone with a better ear than mine listen and try to make it out? And on a broader note, is there anything else hidden in the record?

Oh, the song is "Slave Only Dreams To Be King" btw. >.>

I hear it too probably be wise to use audacity. I can't make out a single word.

It sounds like some sort of deconstruction of this Lou Reed quote. This is the full quote, which you can't hear in the song, but in full, it does sound like something that Marilyn Manson would repeat in reference to himself.


“You can’t ask me to explain the lyrics because I won’t do it…I always believed that I have something important to say and I said it. That’s why I survived because I still believe I’ve got something to say.”

I had no idea there was even any samples in Warship.

Where in the song is it?

This would also explain the reasoning of Manson not giving out his lyrics in an album booklet. I will have to listen for that. Good find.

I am not hearing any distorted parts.

Sorry. I quoted the wrong post. What I found is in "Slave Only Dreams to Be King."

There is DEFINITELY something in "Warship My Wreck".

3:36-3:39 is the only part of the song in which I can hear it, and I can't make anything out - it's incredibly faint in the mix, much moreso than even the sample I mentioned in "Slave". I can't make out any of the words, but it sounds like a mechanized voice similar to the ones in "Track 99" or "Untitled" off ACSS and MA respectively.

I'm not just hearing this; it's definitely there. My speakers are at very odd angles, which might account for it being clearer to me.

Can anyone else confirm? I do not have an Internet connection on anything other than this phone, so I can't try to isolate it.

I checked Warship a few times with different techniques and it's definitely not a voice - probably synth/texture effect only. If it was a voice at the beginning it's been so manipulated that there's no way to tell what it may have been.

Here's a clean up of the Slave sample "You can't expect me to explain the lyrics because I won't do it" which from all I can tell is attributed as a Lou Reed quote

This interview seems to be the source of the quote in words, but I can't find where the audio might originate from.

I like how that sample is mixed. Sounds cool and fits the song. I think Slave... represents most of the album. It's working title could be "The Pale Emperor", aside from TMOLA's working title.

You are correct. It seems to be along the lines of "You can't ask me to explain the lyrics because I won't do it. You understand that, right?
I won't do it. You understand that, right? You can't ask me to explain the lyrics because I won't do it." spoken by a woman with a man saying something like "I just want you to..." at various points.

I can hear it too and always heard a voice at the beginning of The speed of pain too. MM songs are full of secret we may know when HQ multitraks are released...
