Marilyn Manson - The Gardener Lyrics




I’m not man enough to be human
But I’m trying to fit in
And I’m learning to fake it

Don’t ever meet their friends
It tells you too much
Or not enough
Or worse
Exactly the wrong thing
Every nuance
Every detail
Every movement
Every smell
Sound
Phrase
Inflection
The way she laughs
These are all the things that you obsessively fetishize
Or make yourself grow to love
Although you are supposed to be done growing
She is still growing
Its like a garden with two flowers
One just blooming and casting a shadow
Just like yours
And then it becomes a struggle
Of sunlight
Or rain
Or weeds

She and every she
Is doomed to be your idea of her
She and every she
Is doomed to be your idea of her

I’m not man enough to be human
But I’m trying to fit in
And I’m learning to fa fa fake it

But worse so,
Back to the point
You are no longer the flower
And the sun
And most importantly the garden
Or the gardener
A muse
Your amusement
I am used
It's all ruined if you meet their friends

She and every she
Is doomed to be your idea of her
She and every she
Is doomed to be your idea of her

I’m not man enough to be human
But I’m trying to fit in
And I’m learning to fa fa fa fake it
Fa fa fa fa fake it
Fa fa fa fa fake it
Fa fa fa fa fake it
Ffffffffffffffake it

You never wanted
To share
Your concept of your creation
With any other gods or worshippers

Your book isn’t burned
It was never written
Your book isn’t burned
It was never written

I’m not man enough to be human
But I’m trying to fit in
And I’m learning to fa fa fa fake it
Fa fa fa fa fake it
Fa fa fa fa fake it
Fa fa fa fa fake it
Ffffffffffffffake it

    Your garden is the next day.
    The place is the moment and the garden is the naturalness that separates and opens the cross in two ...
    And they show you the wings.

Such a jewel slipping right through their slick fingers whilst they busy themselves typing odes of adornment on his other videos or moaning how they miss the good old times of MM.......(This comment only posted to stimulate rage in others).

    Echelon Betha

  68. Mishel Izotova

    😍💖💜

  69. Mis Bernal

    Esto es buena música!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  70. Douglas Navega

    Pretty much like Apple of Sodom

    Joe Jack

    +Douglas Navega with a magnificent bass line in addition.

  71. Dude

    I love every single Manson album. I hated all the albums after Holy Wood for a long time. But then Pale Emperor came out. I hadn't listened to Manson for years but damn, I was really diggin it. So I decided to go back and check out the albums I never gave a chance. I was missing out. This shit is great. Everything this man has released is amazing.

    Douglas Navega

    @Dude same as me dude

    Markie Brown

    SURE :D

    daniel hamby

    damn man im going through the exact same thing now lol.. as soon as i heard golden age of grotesque i hated every song on it and just stopped listening to his stuff. but i heard mephistopeles of los Angeles on YouTube and loved it, so i got on amazon and ordered every album after gaog and realized i made a misteak back in 04... love all his albums now

    James Schultz * Est.1982

    The Dude abides! I'm digging into Manson's catalogue more than I ever have, and now that I'm seeing his career from a distance, I'm pretty shocked that some people hated on Golden Age Of Grotesque and (shocked to a lesser extent re: the next few). Every album has _great_ shit, and his last two albums, _"The Pale Emperor"_ and _"Heaven Upside Down"_ may be my favorite albums of his from top to bottom, along with "_Holy Wood"_

  72. Tree Hugger

    This is so relevant, <3

  73. Joe Jack

    The best song from that album.

  74. watchALLthethings

    That fuckin groovy bass. Love it.

  75. Blue

    F-f-fucking great song.

  76. Jo Verion

    nice, i like listening to some of his deeper lyrics

  77. Skye Meadows

    Too much hate for Manson for doing something different on each album. Its called versatility people! They're a lot better than 90% of the bands out there that sound the same on every track

    Mr. Drown_73

    C Kevlar you forgot the other two wishes

    Corey 742617000027

    Everyone got mad at Korn for that too :'(

    Michael K.

    Skye Meadows hes just became shit. and he tried different stuff in the beginning except it worked

    spade

    I agree with you but I don't like Born Villain at all.

    Kennedy Crevoiserat

    Skye Meadows whats funny is to me I like the new albums even more up to pale emperor I still love the old shit tho

  78. 00ninja

    We the real humans....fuck the sheep

  79. 00ninja

    too many ads you tube!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  80. Anisa Zaman

    dear god, his voice is so delicious

    i want it to make love to me

    Corey 742617000027

    Tbh I just like the music but ok damn XD

    Barefoot Girl67

    His voice. ...even when he's just speaking...so amazingly different and soothing. ..not into him "like that" but definately, that voice

  81. Erin Lowe

    They should make a music video for this. I'm trying to imagine it

  82. QueenBitch666

    His voice is pretty much orgasmic. 

    Glennda goble

    Especially when you have earbuds in and your just sitting there like asdfghjkl

    Smerff Silicone

    I normally bring a extra set of boxers when I go out for this reason

  83. Alexandru Topor

    the reason you people think it's his second worst album is because you don't understand it , try reading Les fleurs du mal and this album starts to make a bit of sense.

    even GAOG makes sense , all of Manson's albums are good, it's hard to categorize, because every album has a different theme, you can't compare romanticism to decadence, just like you can't compare Mechanical Animals to Golden Age of Grotesque

    Clifford Wolfenstein

    Mechanical Animals was a pair with Antichrist Superstar, and they are worlds apart. It kind of shows the thought process with how his albums are suppose to be new entities each time.

    spade

    Born Villain is the only album of manson that i don't like at all..

    Purple Killjoy

    Long vie a Baudelaire :)

  84. Megan Moran

    And i'm learning to f f f fake it! Live this song

  85. DarthWray1138

    It's like a garden with two flowers.

  86. Toddy Infinite

    And for you an artist that do spoken word is mediocre compared to some kinda brainless rockstar screaming the shit out of everybody?

  87. Toddy Infinite

    I agree, no. In fact I think is his 2nd worst album. Compared with his other work, TGAOG is... funny

  88. taftvalue

    golden age of grotesque is and will always be his best album^^

  89. ReaperM4son

    Holy Wood is the best Era. I can't believe! THEOL was a big mistake for the band! Except for Running To The Edge Of The World, Wight Spider, Arma, Pretty as a $ and Leave A Scar the rest of the album is a piece of shit!

  90. mywayromancela

    Me encanta...

  91. Cecy Hazegirl

    Su voz es hermosa.

  92. AfterAllWeAreHuman

    I love this....

  93. iscariot project

    need to buy this album this song is pure porn

  94. Coma White

    I love his voice, so pretty!

  95. Aidan T W Simpson

    Personally,
    I have been alone since I was 10 years old, i am 21 now.

    And the chorus of this song always gets me in the chest, people saying I need a girl and to get out there and fill my day with a multitude of hobbies.

    And hell, I am just try to fit i'm and yeah. I'm learning to fake it.

    TheGuess2D

    So how's it been?

  96. Celeste Babe

    True fans stick with it til the end. I love it all, for being his fan I can accept all of his work and growth of music.

  97. Hmm

    Thought the growth was kind of an overpowering growth / intellectual growth / manipulation / character traits ? Each overpowering each other as each flower grows in the garden?
