"Stigmata" as written by and Al Jourgensen....
Stronger than reason
Stronger than lies
The only truth I know
Is the look in your eyes
The look in your eyes!

Just like a car crash
Just like a knife
My favourite weapon
Is the look in your eyes
You've run out of lies!

You've run out of lies!
You've run out of lies!
You've run out of lies!
You've run out of lies!
You've run out of lies!
You've run out of lies!
There's a ton locked in your empty eyes
Get out of my life!

I'm chewing on glass
And eating my fingers
I'm not the one
Who's run out of lies
Lies!

You've run out of lies!
You've run out of lies!
You've run out of lies!
You've run out of lies!
You've run out of time!

Cutting my face
And walking on splinters
I lost my soul
To the look in your eyes
Your eyes!

You ran out of lies!
You ran out of lies!
You ran out of lies!
You ran out of time!

Stigmata!

O, you have empty eyes!...
They tell me nothing, nothing but lies

    Fuck you! Fuck me! Fuck all of you!
    Stigmata! Stigmata! Stigmata! Stigmata!

    General Commentstigmata means marks that were inflicted on jesus... I don't get it. Great music though, LoRaH was impressive.

    At the end there is a voice that repeats "heresy", I think...

    General CommentThis album directly shaped the sound of Skinny Puppy's album "Rabies" a year later, which Al Jourgensen produced. "Stigmata" and "Flashback" are right at home next to "Hexonxonx" and "Tin Omen".

    General CommentOn the live version, I've always heard it as , 'You've run out of life', instead of lies. Makes the song a hell of a lot darker.

    General CommentAgreed to... this is the best song...

    Land of Rape and Honey was itself the best album.

    General CommentStigmata is also the plural of the word stigma, which has several meanings, but usually refers to some sort of "badge of shame" or physical mark/branding that places you as an outcast in society.
    Al Jourgenson is an outcast in society, the title is a reference to his contradictory beliefs and also stating that "they" (i.e. christians, hindus, george bush, society and religion in total) are the real ones that should be branded as outcasts. The titles of Christian, etc.. are actually their "badges of shame."
    And yes, this is one of their best, along with Psalm 69, Thieves, and Filth Pig, in my opinion.
