Charles Manson Sends Postcard to Marilyn Manson

"Ghost dancers slay together and you’re just in my grave," the convicted mass-murderer writes to his goth rocker namesake.

Charles Manson has sent a bizarre, handwritten postcard to Marilyn Manson -- the goth rocker who took his stage surname from the infamous cult leader, pairing it with the first name of Marilyn Monroe

A copy of the original postcard, which was sent to the singer in August, was posted to mansondirect.com, a personal website that purports to reveal the "truth" about the convicted killer. 

Manson, now 77, is currently serving a life sentence at California's Corcoran State Prison for masterminding a brutal murder spree in the summer of 1969 that would claim the lives of eight-months pregnant actress Sharon Tate and Leno and Rosemary LaBianca, among others.

The postcard reads:

"To Marilyn Manson –

It’s taken me a long time to get there from where I could touch M. Manson. Now I got a card to play – you may look into my non-profit, ATWA, and give Manson what you think he’s got coming for Air, Trees, Water, and you. Or I will pay Manson what you think Manson got coming – the music has make Manson into Abraxas Devil, and I’m SURE you would want some of what I got from what I got. It’s a far out balance. Beyond good and bad, right, wrong. What you don’t do is what I will do – what you did a sing-along, and let it roll and said how you saved me a lot of steps – I don’t need, it’s not a need or a want. Couped – coup. Ghost dancers slay together and you’re just in my grave Sunstroker Corona-coronas-coronae – you seen me from under with it all standing on me. That’s 2 dump trucks – doing the same as CMF 000007

Charles Manson"

Marilyn Manson recently made headlines for walking through LAX with the words "F--- YOU" written on his face. His eighth full-length studio album, Born Villain, was self-released on May 1, 2012, debuting at No. 10 on the Billboard 200.
