Marilyn Manson recently talked about his belief that people can visit other time periods in their dreams. And that got me thinking, mostly because it reminded me of things he's said in the past. I remember in 1996 he said that Antichrist Svperstar was his "life story past, present, and future." And recently he's said that in a dream a long time ago, he visited a recent day to today and heard Born Villain and was thus inspired to write Antichrist Svperstar. And Manson said he doesn't believe in coincidence, and that he believes everything has a purpose.
Anyways, given my understanding of Antichrist Svperstar, I've been thinking about if Manson has always thought [knew] that he is going to be killed by somebody / some people; that he would become a well-known figure loved by many and hated by others who would become a martyr through the TV.
Even in pre-ACSS songs he's written about this sort of thing:
If I don't wear this shirt, they're going to make me dead. The shirt says, "I'm part of the boys' club."
-- No ClassAnd I'm sure there are more examples, but those two examples are off the top of m head.One day, people are going to make me dead.
-- Meat for a Queen
Anyways, does anyone share with Manson his beliefs about purpose, fate, and dreams?
And what are your thoughts about a martyrdom of Manson in the future?
