I am a conundrum. I am an enigma. I am a man. Careless with my heart. Emotional. Looking for life and love in places I haven't looked before. Mostly happy, but sad sometimes too. Adventurous, talented, jealous, lovesick, adoring, caring, giving. Is "The One" out there? Does she exist? That what I long to discover.
I don't care if your world is ending today I wasn't invited to it anyway You said I tasted famous, so I drew you a heart But now I'm not an artist I'm a fucking work of art I've got an F and a C and I got a K too And the only thing missing is a bitch like yoU You wanted perfekt You got your perfekt But now I'm too perfekt for someone like you
- Marilyn Manson, (s)AINT
"Man was born to love Though often he has sought Like Icarus, to fly too high. And far too lonely than he ought To kiss the sum of east and west And hold the world at his behest To hold the terrible power To whom only gods are blessed But me, I am just a man"
