"Evidence" is the seventh track on the 2007 release Eat Me, Drink Me.

Music details[edit]

The song begins with some haunting chimes and piano. A tribal drum beat soon kicks in and Manson begins to sing. Yet another Skold guitar solo is one of the high point of this dark track. The instrumental version featured on the promotional disc Bonus Track and Instrumentals from the Album "Eat Me, Drink Me" includes a section completely absent from the album version of the song, which extends the track's length by a minute.

Lyrics[edit]

    You have eyes that
    lead me on
    and a body that 
    shows me death
    your lips look like they were made
    for something else but
    they just suck my breath
    I want your pain
    to taste why you're ashamed
    and I know you're not just what you say to me
    and I'm not the only moment you're made of
    You're so sudden and sweet
    All legs, knuckle, knees
    Head's blown clean off
    your mouth's paid off
    Fuck me 'til we know it's unsafe
    and we'll paint
    over the evidence
    I want you wanting me
    I want what I see in your eyes
    so give me something to be scared of
    don't give me something to satisfy 
    You're so sudden and sweet
    all legs, knuckle, knees
    Head's blown clean off
    your mouth's paid off
    Fuck me 'til we know it's unsafe
    and we'll paint
    over the evidence
    I want your pain
    to taste why you're ashamed
    And I know you're not just what you say to me
    And I'm not the only moment you're made of
    You're so sudden and sweet
    legs, knuckle, knees
    Head's blown clean off
    your mouth's paid off
    Fuck me 'til we know it's unsafe
    and we'll paint
    over the evidence
