Suicide is painless.
Though covered by Manson, this is actually a lyric to "Suicide Is Painless" written by Mike Altman for the movie M*A*S*H (1970); the music (written by Johnny Mandel) later provided the theme music for the M*A*S*H TV series.
… I don't expect everyone to get something deep out of it. Some people can just listen to the music, or get their aggressions out, but I think with any great painting or movie, album or whatever it is, it's better if people can take what they need from it. That they're not forced to get some particular message.Marilyn Manson
The whole concept of this band is to present the ugly truth about society – warts and all, and let the chips fall where they may.Marilyn Manson
If someone listens to our music, and it makes them creative, that makes me happier than anything.Marilyn Manson
… if I hadn't gone to a private Christian school, I'd never have built up enough animosity to want to have started a band. And now that I have one, the fact that they are giving me such resistance and publicity, they have made me far bigger than they'd ever have wanted me to have become. So I guess in a strange way the Christians have influenced me the most.Marilyn Manson
Hopefully, I’ll be remembered as the person who brought an end to Christianity.Marilyn Manson
If they think that an artist can destroy their faith, then their faith is rather fragile.Marilyn Manson
To me, anything that is a church is really just far too close minded.Marilyn Manson
“If people really stopped and realized how much art and creative people move the world versus politics and religion, I mean it’s not even up for debate. An artist at least creates things, puts things into the world. Where as these other people are destroying things, taking things out of the world.”Marilyn Manson
"Art gives me the freedom I don’t have when I make music. In music you feel a connection to the voice and think about the person behind it. In art that’s secondary.”Marilyn Manson
Is adult entertainment killing our children? Or is killing our children entertaining adults?”Marilyn Manson
The death of one is a tragedy, but death of a million is just a statistic.Marilyn Manson
