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 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?

    Of those who are sitting in the theatre of which this screen exists

Trivia[edit]

  • Because of the massive amount of lyrics throughout the twenty-five minute film, many lines were subject to recycling for subsequent works. Lyrics were reworked into "(s)AINT" ("You're sell by date has expired"), "Slutgarden" ("I am a VCR / A funeral of dead memory waste" and "Love your enemy because love is the enemy"), "Vodevil" ("I want downloadable suicide"), "Are You the Rabbit?" ("I am a kickstand in your mouth" and "The insurance won't cover this") and "Devour" ("My pain is not ashamed to repeat itself").
  • The song "Thaeter" is played in a continuous loop throughout the narration.
  • " It’s a stream of consciousness, absinthe fueled rant that may have ended up being a suicide note the way I was going this particular night, because I had received a bunch of bad news this day. I had everyone leave the room and I just wanted to say what I wanted to say. We created images to go with it. I played it for the record company, and it’s 35 minutes long or something like that. Ten minutes into it, I’d say, “Yeah, that’s the single,” but there was no music. It was just me talking. Then they would kind of laugh, “Oh, that’s funny, Manson, but really...” and I’d just say, “That’s really it.” At a couple points during the making of the record, between my manager and the record company, they wanted to put the whole thing to an end and probably send me to rehab for mental intervention, literally."
