"tear the son out of your bitch and sprinkle your remains with lime"
"The most that I can learn is in records that you burn."
Oh, so true.
"Raise to be stupid, taught to be nothing at all"
Too many to list them all, but I'll just do one for now because I was just listening to the song and don't recall seeing it mentioned already in this thread:
"The toys are us, and we don't even know."
Unkillable Party Monster
There's really too numerous to mention in this topic, the man's turn-of-phrase permeates so many songs and generates so many moods it's astounding. You could also probably take anything from Mechanical Animals (The Last Day On Earth being a rather obvious choice, given where we're all writing this) and it would class as a favourite lyric.
"I hope that we die holding hands" is just so tragically Shakespearean, and beautiful, it's amazing, and from such a simple sentiment as well.
I've always been fond of the Wildean reckless abandon of "If you're not dancing, then you're dead". Recently, since the release of Born Villain, both the spite and confidence of "We don't need your faith, we've got fucking fate", and the apocalyptic curiosity of "Watching monkey suicide. Sunday AIDS and church win wash it away" from Hey, Cruel World... and Children Of Cain (respectively) stand out the most, and have become firm favourites.
More shall come, but those are some favourites for now.
"I am the idiot who will not be himself." "I wasn't born with enough middle fingers. I don't need to choose a side."
"Hey you, what do you see? Something beautiful, something free. Hey you, are you trying to be mean? If you live with apes man its hard to be clean."
"You threw your money in the pissing well, you did just what they tell you."
"Do you love your guns (yeah)?, god (yeah)?, your government? Fuck yeah."
"You say you wanted evolution, the ape was a great big hit. You say you want a revolution man and I say that you're full of shit."
"This was never my world, you threw the angel away. I'd kill myself to make everybody pay."
"Hey, cruel world. You don't have what it takes. We don't need your faith. We've got fucking fate."

"I woke up today and wished for tomorrow
I don't want to be like anyone else
I woke up today and wished for tomorrow
I don't want to even be myself "
"Some of them want to use you. Some of them want to be abused."
"Sometimes I feel I want to get away. I want to runaway."
"Feeling unknown and you're all alone, flesh and bone, by the telephone. Pick up the receiver, I'll make you a believer."
"I can't stand the things that you do. No, no, no I ain't tryin'"
"You gave away the things you loved and one of them was me. I had some dreams, there were clouds in my coffee."
Did I do it right?
^ Manson didn't write "Sweet Dreams." That is a cover of a Eurythmics song from 1983.
"Hell-flavored, I've got mood poisoning
You must be something that I hate."
