Marilyn Manson: (s)AINT Meaning
No tags, suggest one.
Get "(s)AINT" on MP3:Get MP3 from Amazon
Because I wasn't invited to it anyway
You said I tasted famous, so I drew you a heart
But now I'm not an artist I'm a fucking work of art
I've got an F and a C and I got a K too
And the only thing...

I think Manson is saying that he's never played himself out to be anything but what he is.Sex ,drugs and metal and unconventional beliefs are part of his life so accept him for who he is and i think the lines"i got an F and a C and i got a K too" are aimed towards any female partner he's had that wanted to be with a rockstar but couldn't handle it when they were or tried to change him rather than accept him as the person that they 1st met.

(s)AINT being about a break up does make a fair bit of sense, especially with all the imagery in the video being very graphic, probably as the most blatant of middle fingers to his ex.
However, before I knew anything about a breakup what I got was that he was making fun of priests or extremely religious people that muck up, adopt personalities in the public eye and in secret are worse then everyone else. In the same strain it could be the irony in people going nuts over things that are harmless, all the while doing far worse.

Interesting song. I can't tell if he is talking about going against religion or religious standards (namely Christianity), or if he is going against his ex (Rose McGowan). It seems to be the later (and perhaps a mix, accusing her of being religious in her own way and he is not a saint to her "religious" expectations.) If that is the case, it will be difficult to find anyone to be with since it is impossible to escape a value system in ourselves or others. This is probably most obvious to us in relationships.

This interpretation is pretty simple in the song he says "hold the (s) because I am an AINT" he's saying that he's unholy he's saying that he don't want to be like the religous people he's saying he's anti and that's his plan is to be anti.There's also another one,he could be saying that nobody accepts him for who he is people say " he's the devil he's a Satan worshiper" and they keep asking him to be holy and turn to god.But he refuses so he says "hold the (s) because I am an AINT".

Okay, as for this song, regardless of what some say, I just know MUST be Manson countering back at Rose McGowan after their breakup. Look at the fierce, hostile lyrics:
"I got a F and a C and I got a K, too
and the only thing missing is a bitch like yoU"
and later on:
"I am a dandy in the ghetto with a snow white smile
super-ego bitch I've been evil awhile"
An open-and-shut case.
