Grunge Metal Song of the Day

Song of the Day (The Chain): Marilyn Manson – Tourniquet

Day 26.I’m rolling with the production angle here. Nine Inch Nails’ Trent Reznor was also heavily involved with producing most early Marilyn Manson albums, up until Antichrist Superstar.

Tourniquet is a kind of Grunge/Goth combination, with Art Rock & Industrial colouring. Far from the pummelling Metal onslaught the hype & hysteria would have led you to believe. From the vantage point of 2020, it’s easy to forget how much reactionary christian & conservative groups were frightened by this. It’s absurd. Almost like they had nothing else to worry about.

I caught you watching me under the light
Can I be your line?
They say it’s easy to leave you behind
I don’t wanna try
Come and take that test
Hold courage to your chest
Don’t wanna wait for you
Don’t wanna have to lose
All that I compromised to feel another high
I’ve got to keep it down tonight
And oh, oh, oh
I was a king under your control
And oh, oh, oh
I wanna feel like you’ve let me go
So let me go
Don’t you remember how I used to like
Being on the line?
I dreamed you dreamed of me calling out my name
Is it worth the price?
Come and take that test
Hold courage to your chest
Don’t wanna wait for you
Don’t wanna have to lose
All that I compromised to feel another high
I’ve got to keep it down tonight
And oh, oh, oh
I was a king under your control
And oh, oh, oh
I wanna feel like you’ve let me go
So let me go
Yeah
Let me go
Just let me go
Let me go
