"Stigmata Martyr" - by Bauhaus
(Night of the Demons Soundtrack, 1988)

Lyrics by Peter Murphy

In a crucifixation ecstasy
Lying cross chequed in agony
Stigmata bleed continuously
Holes in head, hands, feet and weep for me

Stigmata, oh, you sordid sight
Stigmata in your splintered plight
Look to your crimson orifice
In holy remembrance, in scarlet bliss

Stigmata martyr
Stigmata martyr
Stigmata martyr

In nomine et patri, et filii, et spiritus sanctum
In nomine et patri, et filii, et spiritius sanctum
In nomine et patri, et filii, et spiritius sanctum
In nomine et patri, et filii, et spiritius sanctum
