Lyrics[edit]

    My pilot light has flickered out
    You've knocked me off the hook
    The person you are trying to reach is no longer here
    I'm not really tall, dark and handsome
    I just look that way
    I'm a canvas that bleeds
    And I'm painted with fingers
    Childish pictures
    Of you that still linger
    Bury you're wasted into the moon
    Hoping that it sinks to the earth soon
    Bury you're wasted into the moon
    I hope that it sinks into the earth soon
    
    My pilot light has flickered out
    You've knocked me off the hook
    The person you are trying to reach is no longer here
    I'm a canvas that bleeds
    And I'm painted with fingers
    Childish pictures of you that still linger
    I am a VCR
    A funeral of dead memory waste
    I'm a VCR
    A funeral of dead memory waste
    You can see it on my face
    I'm a VCR funeral
    Of dead memory waste
    You can see it on my face
    My smile is a chain link fence
    I dare not frown
    For fear of what comes out
    My smile is a chain link fence
    And I dare not frown for fear of what comes out
    
    Sing a song kitty
    Sing it
    Sing it kitty
    Sing it
    Some people don't think that Lily
    Is smart enough to understand what I'm thinking
    But I know if she could she would kill
    Everybody that I hate, 'cause she loves me
    'Cause I took care of her since she was a little baby
    
    I am a VCR funeral of dead memory waste
    You can see it in my face
    As drink crawls down the esophagus staircase
    Into my bowels of hell
    Naked like clown faces all smeared clean
    Naked like clown faces all smeared clean in the spotlight
    Naked like clown faces all smeared clean in the spotlight
    
    I'm a VCR funeral of dead memory waste you can see it on my face
    Dead memory waste
    
    Kill me, kill everyone, you can let them all die
    The only thing in this world that does not die is money
    You can kill me, you can kill them, you can let everyone die
    The only thing in this world that does not die is money
    You can kill me, you can kill them, you can let everyone die
    The only thing immortal in this world is money
    You can kill me, you can kill them, you can let everything die
    The only thing immortal in this world is money

    The only thing immortal in this world is money
    The person you are trying to reach is no longer here
    You have knocked me off the hook
    The person you are trying to reach is no longer here
    You have knocked me off the hook
    
    You are afraid that you are no equal
    While you are spending my money
    You are afraid you are no equal while you are spending my money
    You can kill me, you can kill them, you can let everyone die
    The only thing immortal in this world is money
    Why would I want to be equal with anyone?
    You think you're not equal while you're spending my money
    Why would I want to be equal with anyone?
    Why would I want to be equal with anyone?
    To be equal you have to add or subtract

DOPPELHERZ

A film about the Golden Age of Grotesque,
created during the making of this album, and
birth of a new era for its creator. The audio
recording that accompanies this took place
on April 1st, 2002, and remains in its entirety.

This is thought by many to be the most rare
look into the mind of the person we know as
Marilyn Manson. It is also believed (but will
not be confirmed or denied by Manson) that
these words were intended to be his last,
meant only for those who were listening...
particularly his beloved feline familiar Lily
White
.


The film offers no explanation, nor needs
one. Many thanks to those who helped make
this, the beginning, not an end, to the most
amazing era of Marilyn Manson. The artists
and friends who were involved enough to be
mentioned are as follows, in no particular
order:

Gottfried Helnwein
Dita Von Teese
Tim Skold
Nicole
Benjamin Palmer
Marilyn Manson
M.W. Gacy
John 5

Charles Koutris

Brittany Bowen
Cyril Helnwein
