    I like the instrumentation, there are some good lines on here, but, overall I kind of wish this wasn't the first single. Overall I dig it but I can see it's flaws.

    3/5.

    Really dig the lines "THE WORLD WAS STRIPPED OF ITS SUPERFICIAL SURFACES WE DON'T INTEND TO JUST EAT THE STREET THE ASPHALT IS THE GOOD MEAT"

    "AND WE WILL SLEEP ON THE SKIN OF ITS NIGHTMARES"
    .
    edit: matter of fact.

    Yeah, which loses something for me if it's "well" instead of "world," as indicated in the iTunes lyrics.

    Yes, the surface can be scraped from a well...but it's the WORLD that's covered with streets and asphalt. Oh, and I'm like a BILLION percent certain that Manson overemphasizes the ASS in ASphalt because he's talking about eating ass, much like his insistent play on words with "I'm not in love BUTT I'm gonna fuck your" and "she wouldn't let me be anywhere BUTT inside," lol. BUTT I DIGRESS.

    Anyway, the colorful imagery of "stripping" off a surface layer and sleeping on the "skinned horse" of a nightmare is potent indeed.

    Both the "Lyrics" and "Initial Thoughts" threads are now merged here. They didn't need separate threads. My apologies to the reader for any chronological confusion this may cause with what's already been posted so far.

    You may now continue with your regularly scheduled broadcast.

    The lyric

    "So what's a nice place like this, Doing Around People Like us?" Is by far my favorite out of the 3 new songs. That and "Were recording this as it happens..."

    There are some really nice throwaway lines, but it is odd how part of The Bright Young Things was taken near-verbatim:-

    "We don't need to move a single prayer bone
    We're so beautiful and damned
    Simply as a "still life""

    Various words, phrases, even images have been adapted and transferred from earlier projects in Manson's work before, usually with intent. Consider "Maniqueen of depression" between Mechanical Animals and Diamonds & Pollen, or "toys all smell like children" in Kinderfeld, to name a few.

    Maybe the album itself will bridge another gap between The Golden Age Of Grotesque and today. After all, he did open the former with "Everything has been said before. There's nothing left to say anymore", and that was written fifteen years ago.
    "the Serpent was more crafty than any beast of the field which
    the LORD god had made

    I've only listened to the song properly once but because I played the video emailed to me by Manson with my location several times in a row, I had the chorus stuck in my head for quite some time afterwards. And since I don't know the rest of the lyrics, for some reason my brain decided to fill the gap with Manson singing "there's more than one way to make you cry" in Pretty as A Swastika. I don't know why, perhaps I thought the screams "let me show you where it hurts" were quite similar to the ones witht the words "we know where you fucking live". Either way, I guess these are my initial "no thought involved" impressions, maybe I could add something more substantial at a later point.

    I find it odd too. I have yet to figure out what that line means, but Manson rarely speaks about TGAOG. Oddly enough, because he seemed really excited about the album/ era.
