Marilyn Manson - Running to the Edge of the World



The soundtrack to my unemployment continues this week. I've always had a fondness for Marilyn Manson and yet, I had never heard RUNNING TO THE EDGE OF THE WORLD. It's one of those happy YouTube stumbles. I have no idea what album it is on, yet it keeps playing in the twilight zone that has been my life for the last two weeks (but it's getting better). It's also quite the circumstances song for the Mayan Apocalypse that is "supposed" to happen six days from today (do you see a big, threatening fireball in the sky? I do not.) So get your end of the world on and run over there. There is pretty sweet music playing once you arrive. By the way, if your ears are more tender than mine, don't be afraid to press play. It's somewhat a slow song.

Marilyn Manson  - RUNNING TO THE EDGE OF THE WORLD

Remember when I took you
Up to the top of the hill?
We had our knives drawn.
They were as sharp
As we were in love.
If god crossed us
We'd take all his drugs,
Burn his money
And his house down,
And wait for the fire to spread.

Sometimes hate is not enough
To turn this all to ashes.
Together as one
Against all others
Break all of our wings to
Make sure it crashes

We're running to the
Edge of the world
Running, running away
We're running to the edge of the world
I don't know if the world will end today

I had no choice,
I erased the debt of our family,
Let you say goodbye
With lips like dynamite.
And everyone
Turned their backs
Because they knew
When we held on tight
To each other,
We were something fatal,
That fell into the wrong hands.

Sometimes hate is not enough
To turn this all to ashes.
Together as one
Against all others
Break all of our wings to
Make sure it crashes

We're running to the
Edge of the world
Running, running away
We're running to the edge of the world
I don't know if the world will end today

We don't see death, we see destruction
[2X]

[Repeat chorus]

See a new beginning rise behind the sun
We can't never catch up to them as fast as we run
