Music video[edit]

Manson posing like the statue of a saint

The music video, directed by Mathew Ralson, features Marilyn Manson and fellow band members doing outrageous acts deemed too offensive for television screenings. It has been aired worldwide only a few times.

Manson can be seen naked, or alternatively dressed very feminine and posing like statues of saints and imitating the Virgin Mary. He also has an erotic encounter with a girl who in the climax of the video abruptly becomes a deformed man.

The video was also featured on the MTV special Beavis and Butthead Do Thanksgiving with the duo making comments on the video, such as initially mistaking Manson for Cher.

Lyrics[edit]

    I want to fly into your sun
    Need faith to make me numb
    Live like a teenage Christ
    I'm a saint, got a date with suicide
    
    Oh Mary, Mary
    To be this young is oh so scary
    Mary, Mary
    To be this young I'm oh so scared
    I wanna live, I wanna love
    But it's a long hard road, out of hell
    I wanna live, I wanna love
    But it's a long hard road, out of hell
    
    You never said forever, could ever hurt like this
    You never said forever, could ever hurt like this
    
    Spin my way out of hell
    There's nothing left of this soul to sell
    Live fast and die fast too
    How many times to do this for you?
    How many times to do this for you?
    
    Mary, Mary
    To be this young I'm oh so scared
    I wanna live, I wanna love
    But it's a long hard road, out of hell
    I wanna live, I wanna love
    But it's a long hard road, out of hell
    
    You never said forever, could ever hurt like this
    You never said forever, could ever hurt like this
    
    I wanna live, I wanna love
    But it's a long hard road, out of hell
    
    Long hard road, out of hell
    
    I wanna live, I wanna love
    But it's a long hard road, out of hell
    
    Sell my soul for anything, anything but you
    Sell my soul for anything, anything but you
