"Magic 8 Ball" is the fifth track on the yet unreleased Marilyn Manson & the Spooky Kids' second remasters compilation. It was initially recorded in January 1993 before the release of the band's ninth and final cassette, Refrigerator, and again during the Portrait of an American Family recording sessions, but was never formally released on any cassette.

Lyrics[edit]

The first released version recorded during the Portrait of an American Family sessions (but not the first version ever recorded) featured the following lyrics:

    [Unintelligible] like a blow-up doll
    So, so fucked with every call
    All the bullshit at the shopping mall
    You can get your answers from the eight, eight ball
    Better, better, better, better
    Not tell you
    Maybe, maybe, maybe, maybe
    Next time
    Better, better, better, better
    Not tell you
    Maybe, maybe, maybe, maybe
    Next time
    
    Outlook
    Not good
    What I wanna hear
    Look at me,
    Lie to me
    You make it all too clear
    
    If my mind gets hazy
    Take my future, I'm too lazy
    Always got these science fiction mentalities
    Got to my own course daddy got my pocket to me
    [Unintelligible]
    [Unintelligible] tell 'em what we need
    Maybe, maybe, maybe, maybe
    Next time
    Shake it, shake it, shake it, shake it
    Eight Ball
    Shake it, shake it
    Shake it, shake it
    Shake it, shake it
    
    Outlook
    Not good
    What I wanna hear
    Look at me,
    Lie to me
    You make it all too clear
    Outlook
    Not good
    What I wanna hear
    Look at me,
    Lie to me
    You make it all too clear
    
    Eight ball
    Shake it, shake it
    Shake it, shake it
    Shake it, shake it
    Outlook
    Not good
    What I wanna hear
    Look at me,
    Lie to me
    You make it all to clear
    
    Better, better, better, better
    Not tell you
    Maybe, maybe, maybe, maybe
    Next time
    Tell me, tell me, tell me, tell me
    I can't tell you
    Maybe, maybe, maybe, maybe
    Next time
    
    Outlook
    Not good
    What I wanna hear
    Look at me,
    Lie to me
    You make it all too clear
    Outlook
    Not good
    What I wanna hear
    Look at me,
    Lie to me
    You make it all too clear

Trivia[edit]

  • One small snippet of the lyrics ("better, better, better, better not tell") was re-used in "Irresponsible Hate Anthem" several years later.
