"Running to the Edge of The World" is a song by American rock band Marilyn Manson from The High End of Low. An alternate version of the song was included in the album's bonus CD. The song was released for download on November 4, 2009, and a music video was produced for the song.
On September 10th and 11th Manson posted three photos on his Myspace of stills from the video. The first two stills were uploaded to his "video stills from the future" photo album. The third was released the next day in his "My Mobile Photos" photo album.
On November 4th at 6:19PM EST, the video was uploaded to the official website. It had briefly been up under the title 'test1' two days prior, but only for a few hours. The video was directed by Manson and Nathan "Karma" Cox, who also directed the video for "Personal Jesus". It opens with Manson, dressed in a white shirt singing the song to a camera while partially concealing himself with a curtain. As the bridge and outro of the song play, he beats a woman to death, speculated to represent Evan Rachel Wood, played by Kelly Polk.  
One could also draw similarities from the video, to the movie American Psycho. In particular the scene where Marilyn Manson is signing the guestbook, with one glove on, in an identical fashion to Patrick Bateman in the American Psycho movie, featuring Christian Bale.
