THE RUMORS AND THE STORIES OF MY PAST I CAN'T DENY
I'M NO ST. IGNATIUS BUT AGAIN I'M NO BAR FLY
THE WRONG THING IS THE RIGHT THING UNTIL YOU LOSE CONTROL
I GOT THIS BANK OF BAD HABITS IN A CORNER OF MY SOUL 

Chorus
BANK OF BAD HABITS
THE PRICE OF VICE FORETOLD
ONE BY ONE THEY'LL DO YOU IN
THEY'RE BOUND TO TAKE THEIR TOLL 

THE WRONG THING IS THE RIGHT THING
UNTIL YOU LOSE CONTROL
I GOT THIS BANK OF BAD HABITS
IN A CORNER OF MY SOUL 

Verse 2
LAST NIGHT I SAID GOOD BYE TO A DEAR OLD FRIEND OF MINE
JUST A THROWBACK SHELL BEACH PARTY NOTHING REALLY ASININE
RUM AND COOKED ANIMALS AND BULLSHIT BY THE TON
THAT PARTY LASTED WAY TOO LONG AND I HAD TOO MUCH FUN 

Chorus
BANK OF BAD HABITS
THE PRICE OF VICE FORETOLD
ONE BY ONE THEY'LL DO YOU IN
THEY'RE BOUND TO TAKE THEIR TOLL 

THE WRONG THING IS THE RIGHT THING
UNTIL YOU LOSE CONTROL
I GOT THIS BANK OF BAD HABITS
IN A CORNER OF MY SOUL
THAT BANK OF BAD HABITS
IT'S WORTH IT'S WEIGHT IN GOLD 

Bridge
TIME FOR YOU TO SPEND THAT DOUGH
YOUR THE ONLY ONE YOU OWE
SO PUT AWAY THOSE ALIBIS
YOU CAN'T FOOL THAT BANKER IN THE SKY 

NOW LET ME TELL YOU ABOUT THE SEVEN DEADLY SINS
One
PRIDE-THOU SHALT NOT HAVE PRIDE IN THY NEIGHBOR
Two
COVETING-THOU SHALT NOT COVET THY NEIGHBOR'S WIFE
Three
LUST-THOU SHALT NOT LUST AFTER HIS NEIGHBOR'S WIFE
Four 

ANGER-DO NOT BE ANGRY WITH YOUR NEIGHBOR'S WIFE
Five
GLUTTONY-DO NOT EAT THY NEIGHBOR'S WIFE'S POPCORN
Six
ENVY-DO NOT ENVY YOUR NEIGHBOR'S WIFE
Seven
SLOTH-DO NOT BE A SLOB
AND THE Eighth DEADLY SIN IS
PIZZA 

Verse
A PICTURE'S WORTH A THOUSAND WORDS JUST ASK A CAMERA MAN
AND IT'S NO SIN TO STOP AND LOOK I DO IT WHEN I CAN
BUT YOU HAVE TO PURGE THAT URGE TO MERGE
YOU HAVE TO KEEP YOUR HEAD
TROUBLE IS WHAT YOU WILL FIND INSIDE SOME STRANGER'S BED 

Chorus
BANK OF BAD HABITS
THE PRICE OF VICE FORETOLD
ONE BY ONE THEY'LL DO YOU IN
THEY'RE BOUND TO TAKE THEIR TOLL 

THE WRONG THING IS THE RIGHT THING
UNTIL YOU LOSE CONTROL
I GOT THIS BANK OF BAD HABITS
IT'S WORTH ITS WEIGHT IN GOLD
YEA WE'RE TALKIN
KRUGGERAND
DUBLOON
YOU KNOW I WAS WONDERING
DO YOU THINK THEY HAVE AN ATM
MACHINE FOR BAD HABITS?
I THINK I'LL APPLY FOR THAT CARD
