    Default "Coma Today" live MM Medley w/ Smashing Pumpkins lyrics [VIDEO INCLUDED]

    Maaaaan, I was having the hardest time figuring out wtf Manson was singing during "Coma White" the last three times I saw him play it, ffs.

    I even asked people here in chat and we couldn't figure it out! Argh.

    I was gonna post a thread asking for help figuring out wtf was going on but then OMFG I GOT IT.

    No one seems to know about this and it's been almost TWO FUCKING MONTHS since it happened. Bear with me here, plz!

    So I went ahead and slapped together a quick edit of all three nights I caught Manson singing the lyrics for "Today" by The Smashing Pumpkins 3/4ths of the way through "Coma White" (in chronological order) and figured you guys might be interested.

    I've gone ahead and christened it "Coma Today," w00t.

    Now, granted, Manson's taken some liberties with the lyrics and my footage is kinda shaky (didn't bother stabilizing it, gfy), but that shit was totally buried in the mix in person and, especially after the first show, I was DEFINITELY straining to hear it and figure out exactly wtf he was singing...so, honestly, I'm just glad my mic was good enough to sort it out once I got home! We'll call that a victory, lol.

    ;)

    Anyway, here y'go.

    It's THIS bit of lyrics from "Today," which Manson's either taking EXTREME creative license with or else mumblecore-ing his way through BIGTIME, lol:


    Today is the greatest
    Day I've ever known
    Can't wait for tomorrow
    I might not have that long
    I'll tear my heart out
    Before I get out







    Now, again, Manson sings it slightly differently.

    I've gone ahead and cut out the first 4 minutes or so of "Coma White" at the beginning of my video just to cut to the chase, but I've also left room beforehand to give context as to where exactly it took place in the song, then cut to each of the three pertinent moments in chronological order, finishing with the full end of the song, which (for the only occasion I filmed) ended with ONE MORE bit of lyrics from "Today" at the tail end of "Coma White."

    Below the video you'll find my best-guess transcriptions of all three performances in-a-row.

    Gotta say, I'm pretty proud of not only capturing but FINALLY FUCKING HEARING the lyrics Manson was adding from "Today" by The Smashing Pumpkins into "Coma White" for the first time.

    :D






    YOU WERE FROM A PERFECT WORLD
    A WORLD THAT THREW ME AWAY TODAY

    IS THE GREATEST
    DAY I'VE FELT/LEFT (???)
    IT'S NOT LIKE TOMORROW
    I'LL BURN MY EYES OUT
    BEFORE I GET OUT

    YOU WERE FROM A PERFECT WORLD
    A WORLD THAT THREW ME AWAY TODAY

    TODAY
    IS THE GREATEST DAY I'VE FELT
    IT'S NOT LIKE TOMORROW
    I'LL BURN MY EYES OUT
    BEFORE I GET OUT

    YOU WERE FROM A PERFECT WORLD
    A WORLD THAT THREW ME AWAY TODAY

    THAT I'VE FELT
    THE GREATEST DAY I'VE FELT
    I'LL BURN MY EYES OUT
    BEFORE I GET OUT

    A PILL TO MAKE YOU NUMB
    A PILL TO MAKE YOU DUMB
    A PILL TO MAKE YOU ANYBODY ELSE
    BUT ALL THE DRUGS IN THIS WORLD
    WON'T SAVE HER FROM HERSELF

    A PILL TO MAKE YOU NUMB
    A PILL TO MAKE YOU DUMB
    A PILL TO MAKE YOU ANYBODY ELSE
    BUT ALL THE DRUGS IN THIS WORLD
    WON'T SAVE HER FROM HERSELF

    TODAY IS THE GREATEST DAY EVER
    IT'S NOT LIKE TOMORROW
    A PILL TO MAKE YOU NUMB
    A PILL TO MAKE YOU DUMB
    A PILL TO MAKE YOU BURN YOUR EYES OUT



    Obviously, I'm guessing there a bit.

    What do YOU think?

    Love this newly added part, and love your investigational work there Haz! :)

    Transcription sounds about right, or at least as right as Manson can possibly be transcribed lol

    Lunchbox has become the jam sesh song lately too, using both Cake and Sodomy and Five to One lyrics.

    OMFG, I knowwww...

    Can't fucking WAIT to hear it someday!!!

    XD

    Back in the day, at least once, Manson did "5 to 1" improv-ed during the drumbeat breakdown of "Lunchbox" (Detroit '00, I believe), and Mr./Duncan Black filmed and posted it but GODFUCKINGDAMNIT it never seems to pop up in anything fans have ripped and re-posted.

    I emailed him about it roughly a decade ago but no dice.

    OMFGSOEPIC

    :'(
