"Seven Deadly Sins" as written by Charles Burchill and James Kerr....
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

    General CommentI heard somewhere that this was written for the Super Mario Bros. movie soundtrack, and that they were asked to do it by Keith Forsey (who wrote their big hit (Don't You Forget About Me).) Then they recorded it, were pleasantly surprised by how good it was, and had it taken out of the soundtrack.

    Anyway, it's a brilliant rock song, far too good for that movie anyway (I've never actually seen it, and don't plan to.)
