Ever felt that you've been lied and somehow you just can't provide the proof 
Ever felt you've 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 about 7 deadly sins

 Number one says drop the gun there's nothnig 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 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 to be tin
I'm not superstitious about 7 deadly sins
I can hear them calling out, I can hear them screaming out
 Blood is sweet like a deep 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

Everybody's calling out 7 deadly sins
Everybody's dreaming about 7 deadly sins
