General Comment Hmm General Comment Well, I also think this song has many themes. There's some drug references too. General Comment this song shows that no one has to conform to bullshit in life that is fed to u by the media, ur parents etc..
General Comment Another interesting fact about the kid who committed suicide and who had ACS in his CD player: His father went on a rally to de-rail Manson, so to speak and used to say "He is a hand grenade that goes off in teenagers head.
Pelvis Thrust. General Comment There are many-a people on a constant itch to blame Marilyn Manson for stupid bullshit. But like he says himself, if anyone is STUPID enough to kill themselves over music, then that's one less idiot in the world.
General Comment Excellent lyrics, especially the line 'This isn't me I'm not mechanical For the record, I hate to say it but some Manson fans are dumb. But the intelligent ones more than make up for the idiots. This is a great song, the whole of Mechanical Animals is fantastic. The world is their enemy, not him and he can't do anything to stop kids commiting suicide, regardless of what parents might think. General Comment Mechanical Animals.

Add Review trafficcrash October 4, Report. A definite error was made on this entry - my copy is US-made, same catalog number. For some reason, a merge was done today to show only a UK release? Just acquired this album, and it is brilliant.
The different tracks work incredibly well and the sound quality is outstanding. As a die hard Manson fan, this is truly a wonderful piece to own and happy to have in my collection. This album has also aged very well unlike some of his other stuff looking at you portrait so if you owned this in the past you will not be disappointed.
Reply Notify me Helpful. I was fortunate enough to grab a near mint copy about a decade ago for waaaaay less than its current value. One of the best sounding records I own, honestly.

It sold , and got to No. The label lost interest, they took down the huge billboard they had in Times Square for the album, the president of the label called Manson up, screaming at him for having tits on the cover.

There's no reason to envision a sci-fi world of people with metal inside of them — already, people that walk around look like human beings, but they don't act like it. They don't express any kind of creativity, they don't show any emotions — they've dumbed themselves down with drugs, with television, with religion. If 'Antichrist Superstar' was sort of my comparative fall from grace, Lucifer being kicked from heaven, this next record is about what happens on Earth now, It's about sort of trying to fit into a society that thinks it's full of emotions and that you're a callous person, when in fact you're the one that actually has all these feelings and it's the world that's kind of numb to them.
