Lyrics[edit]

Lyric format set to be like that on http://genius.com/Marilyn-manson-deep-six-lyrics to be verified upon release of CD
   [Verse 1]
   You want to know what Zeus said to Narcissus?
   "You better watch yourself"
   You want to know what Zeus said to Narcissus?
   "You better watch yourself"
   "You better watch yourself"
   
   [Verse 2]
   It's like a stranger had a key, came inside my mind
   And moved all my things around
   But he didn't know snakes can't kneel or prey
   Try to break my psyche down
   
   [Pre-Chorus]
   It's as if my feathers were wax
   And your artillery lead
   Do you like our bed?
   Do you like our bed?
   
   [Chorus]
   Deep six, six, six feet deep
   Deep six, six, six feet deep
   Yeah
   
   [Verse 2]
   
   [Pre-Chorus, 2x]
   
   [Chorus]
   
   [Verse 1]
   
   [Bridge 4x]
   LOVE is EVOL
   CON is CONFIDENCE
   EROS is SORE
   SIN is SINCERE
   
   SIN is SINCERE
   SIN is SINCERE
   SIN IS SINCERE
   
   [Chorus]
   
   [Verse 1]

Trivia[edit]

  • Lyrics inspiration: The close relation between sex and violence, between good news and bad news, helps to explain the compulsion of the admen to dunk all their products in sex by erogenizing every contour of every bottle or cigarette. Having reached this happy state where the good news is fairly popping, the admen say, as it were: “Better add a bit of the bad news now to take the hex off all that bonanza stuff.” Let’s remind them that LOVE, replayed in reverse, is EVOL—transposing into EVIL and VILE. LIVE spells backward into EVIL, while EROS reverses into SORE. And, we should never forget the SIN in SINCERE or the CON in CONFIDENCE. // Let’s tighten up the slack sentimentality of this goo with something gutsy and grim. // As Zeus said to Narcissus: // “Watch yourself.” (Marshall McLuhan)
  • "Deep six" is a nautical term meaning to throw something overboard. It would be difficult, if not impossible, to recover something at this depth.
