Ever felt that you've been lied,
And somehow you just can't provide the proof?
Ever felt you're cast aside,
And sheltered from the universal truth?
Ever find when trouble calls you're first in line,
And stick your finger in?
Everybody's talking 'bout 7 deadly sins.
Number one says drop the gun,
There's nothing out there that's worth dying for.
And number two that's me and you,
I'm green inside and jealous to the core.
Number three fidelity I've lost the path,
And I'd better start again.
This thing's got a strange mystique,
The 7 deadly sins.
This thing's got the whole world beat,
7 deadly sins.
I can hear them calling out,
I can hear them screaming out.
Blood is sweet like a deep red river,
And where it goes I don't know.
You make me sweat,
And you make me shiver,
Where it goes I don't know.
If you've got sticky fingers,
You got dreams that linger running through your brain.
Well vanity's the flying "V",
Desire is the one who gets the blame.
If you're looking for a goldmine,
When all around you seems be tin.
I'm not superstitious 'bout the 7 deadly sins.
Everybody's calling out 7 deadly sins,
Everybody's dreamin' 'bout 7 deadly sins.
