Marilyn Manson Antichrist Superstar The Reflecting God Your world is an ashtray We burn and coil like cigarettes The more you cry your ashes turn to mud Its the nature of the leeches the virgins Feeling cheated Youve only spent a second of your life My world is unaffected there is an exit here I say it is and then its true There is a dream inside a dream Im wide awake the more I sleep Youll understand when Im dead I went to god just to see and I was looking at me Saw heaven and hell were lies When Im god everybody dies Scarcan you feel my power Shoot here and the world gets smaller Scarscarcan you feel my power One shot and the world gets smaller Lets jump upon the sharp swords And cut away our smiles Without the threat of death Theres no reason to live at all My world is unaffected there is an exit here I say it is and then its true There is a dream inside a dream Im wide awake the more I sleep Youll understand when Im dead bridge chorus Each thing i show you is a piece of my death Shoot shoot shoot motherfucker No salvation no forgiveness This is beyond your experience Forgiveness In The Reflecting God by Marilyn Manson he is saying that he looked to god for answers and then he realized that he was looking in a mirror he is his own god The song comes from the point of view of someone that has become their own god and sees the lie that he has lived this is the ideology basis of ideas throughout the song The Reflecting God is the most philosophical song on the album It is a seething mass of hidden contradictions apathy and fanaticism redemption and damnation It incorporates references to Nietzsche a misunderstood and maligned philosopher clearly
