Marilyn Manson – Odds Of Even lyrics

[Verse:]
Stood in the face of grim death
Screaming monsters bring me to deafness
My dagger and swagger are useless in the face of the mirror
When the mirror is made of my face

[Chorus:]
This is the house of death
Where even angels die in arms of demons
This is the house of death
Where even angels die in arms of demons...

[Verse 2:]
Hide your heart, in your gut (In Your Gut)
But for what? When they're waiting to pull you apart like a scarecrow
On death row, soon now all of your secrets are shown

[Chorus:]
This is the house of death
Where even angels die in arms of demons
This is the house of death
Even angels die in arms of demons...

[Bridge:]
No-one is exempt from the odds of even
No-one is exempt from the odds of even
No-one is exempt from the odds of even
No-one is exempt from the odds of even

    To me this song is about being in hell. "My dagger and swagger are useless in the face of the mirror when the mirror is made of my face" is a representation of how no matter how strong or moral you make yourself out to be in life when you really aren't, in hell, all your sins, weaknesses, secrets and lies are out in the open, making you powerless to demons which brings up the lyrics "where even 'angels' die in arms of demons". The line "no one is exempt from the odds of even" just demonstrates what I was just explaining, that if you make yourself out to be someone genuine, but on the inside, you aren't, then if you go to hell, it will all unfold. That's just what I gathered from this song. I could be wrong.
