MARILYN MANSON : THE LAST DAY ON EARTH [1998]

Πέρα από ταιριαστό με την περίσταση, το ‘The Last Day On Earth’ είναι το πιο “ανθρώπινο” και, ίσως γι’ αυτό, το πιο αγαπημένο μου τραγούδι του Marilyn Manson. Από το άλμπουμ του των late ‘90s Mechanical Animals.

Apart from fitting for the occasion, ‘The Last Day On Earth’ is the most “human” and, maybe because of that, my favorite
Marilyn Manson song.
From his late ‘90s album
Mechanical Animals.

Yesterday was a million years ago
In all my past lives I played an asshole
Now I found you, it’s almost too late
And this Earth seems obliviating
We are trembling in our crutches
High and dead our skin is glass
I’m so empty here without you
I crack my xerox hands
I know it’s the last day on Earth
We’ll be together while the planet dies.
I know it’s the last day on Earth
We’ll never say goodbye
And the dogs slaughter each other softly
Love burns its casualties
We are damaged provider modules
Spill the seeds at our children’s feet
I’m so empty here without you
I know they want me dead
I know it’s the last day on Earth
We’ll be together while the planet dies
I know it’s the last day on Earth
We’ll never say goodbye
I know it’s the last day on Earth
We’ll be together while the planet dies
I know it’s the last day on Earth
We’ll never say goodbye
I know it’s the last day on Earth
We’ll be together while the planet dies
I know it’s the last day on Earth
We’ll never say goodbye
I know it’s the last day on Earth
We’ll be together while the planet dies
I know it’s the last day on Earth
We’ll never say goodbye
We’ll never say goodbye
We’ll never say goodbye

    Grimly fitting for the present moment in time.

    I concur with Liz. The song has a nice weird end of world sound to it.

      I agree. There’s also a “sentimental” element rarely present in this guy’s music.

    Αν θες βάλε κι αυτό από μένα! Πρέπει να το έχω ξαναβάλει, αλλά έτσι κι αλλιώς τελευταία έχω ξεμείνει από ιδέες..

    His self images are odd at the least, freaky at best. This image made me never want to listen to anything he ever did. Talk about a prejudiced mind… me.
    Still, he’s no Ministry. Hmm, why am I comparing the two?

      MM begun as a Ministry disciple, like NIN’s Reznor and practically everyone from the “industrial” genre. No-one comes near to the real thing of course.
      But this particular Manson’s song is one of my ’90s favorites!
      And I must say I appreciate his visual side much more than his musical one. I find his videos utterly interesting.

        I’ll have to check out a couple videos, be more curious.
        Agree no one comes close to Ministry. Once I heard them (here) I was an instant fan… lover!
