Talk:Recurring lyrics in Marilyn Manson's music

This is just my list of other recurring words/themes in lyrics to remind me to work on later. There's a whole shit load I want to add (and probably will be more) ... and I don't think anyone even looks at this page. But if anyone feels the urge to help, be my guest.

  • God
  • Sun
  • Sex
  • Bodies/corpses
  • Body parts ((middle) fingers, hands, faces, legs, backs, mouth, tongue, eyes, head, hair)

What you've mentioned is something I've been thinking about over the last few days. I think there needs to be an article which takes an in-depth look at the themes (not just the literal lyrics that reoccur) in the band's music. I'd very much like to be a part of the project (and the website as a whole), but at the moment I'm afraid it's just not possible. Alden Weston talk forum profile 01:51, 17 January 2010 (UTC)
Yes, it'd be great to have an article looking into these themes. And I'd like to get a start on it, but I definitely don't think I'm the right man to be doing any in-depth analyzing. Regardless, thanks for the support! Jarvis 15:28, 17 January 2010 (UTC)
Believe me, if I had the time and resources right now, I'd helm it myself! I've been thinking about it a lot lately actually. I have a lot of ideas brewing. 2010 is going to be an unforgettable year for this website. Alden Weston talk forum profile 19:39, 17 January 2010 (UTC)
Well, I very much look forward to seeing this site evolve! I hope these ideas come to fruition. And thanks a lot, Yawaraey! I appreciate all the help. I'll get back to adding soon ... I haven't been too active lately, and for that, I apologize. Jarvis 01:58, 21 January 2010 (UTC)
I think firearms/guns needs to be added as soon as possible. There are obviously tons of references to guns in his music. I will do so once I have a chance, if no one else has started it by that point.

Puny Puns[edit]

I don't know if this is the right place, but I can't find a more suitable one, so I'm putting it here. I was wondering if it could be a good idea to create an article about puns, allitterations, portmanteaus, double entendres, wordplays to be found in the lyrics. It would be something like [1], [2] or [3].
For example, I was able to collect the following list:

  • Allitterations:

Old-fashioned fascism
Turn literature into litter
if you want to lie with me you're going to be a liar
They gyrate and g-rate on election day
Don’t say no, just say now
Campaign for pain
Narcissus Narcosis
Caucasian occasion
The young are too senile The young zeich (sieg?) heil

  • Portmaneaus:

Low Art Gloominati
Scabaret Sacrilegends
Swing heil

  • Puns:

15 minutes of shame
I’m Stoned and Rolling
Correctly political
Be obscene and not heard
Total Requested Dead
Version Point (less)
Mutilation is the most sincere form of flattery
Apocalypse how
Blank and White

  • Others:

My pupils are not students, they dilate but they never learn
Murdercute happyrape
Van Goh
I've got an F and a C and I got a K too And the only thing missing is a bitch like yoU
