"Saint", stylized as (s)AINT, is a song written by Marilyn Manson in 2003 for the album The Golden Age of Grotesque. Marilyn Manson portrays himself in the music video. The video was shot over a period of two days in November 2003 at the Sunset Tower, a hotel in Los Angeles, California. It was directed by Asia Argento, who guest stars in the video along with Eric Szmanda & former band member Gidget Gein whose "In Case of Emergency Break Heart" sculpture is featured in the video. The sculpture is an edition of three,the one in the video being owned by Asia Argento and the other is owned by artist and friend of Gidget Gein, Damian Crowley and the third version is owned by UnPOP art movement co-founder and friend Aaron Partridge.

Along with the release of the album, Lest We Forget, Manson released a single DVD with the uncut, banned from the label, original version of the music video. The only way to receive this though was to order it through Manson's website. It came also with the CD/DVD package. The explicit version of the DVD was released with the (s)AINT video in Australia and Europe. Japan required an edited version of the video due to censorship laws on showing female genitalia in media.
