Well only time
a time can tell
We'll sing in heaven, or scream in hell
Yeah!
Time will tell

Losing my voice
but nowhere at all
I've got an angel on my back
and a hell hound on my trail

Sweeping cobwebs under carpets, and corpses in the closets

I am/I've been pulling out all of the stops
Trying to sever justice while I'm running from the cops
Heaven or hell?
Scream or yell?
Only time can tell

Sweeping cobwebs under carpets, and corpses in the closets

Wanna talk about eating more truth
and feeding less bullshit.
Told myself I'd get around to it
This is what you call progress
Better call your brother who knows;
The way truth goes, it could be my lucky day
Otherwise I stand corrected
...but I'm not very truthful, and no I'm not funny

I have a way of putting down the truth through my teeth
A tongue-in-cheek foot-in-mouth, but only time can tell
I have a way of putting down the truth through my teeth
A tongue-in-cheek foot-in-mouth, great minds think for themselves

Great minds think for themselves, say it
Great minds think for themselves
Think for themselves

________
Never get sick and never grow old
The Devil's work is hell
But it pays in fucking gold
But it pays in gold

-------
Managed to figure out most of the words, but I could do with some help where I've used brackets/question marks. Also ______ indicates a missing line.

Any suggestions?

    General Commentawesome dude, good shout on those lines.

    any idea on the other two blanks?

    'Trying to sever justice while I'm running from the cops
    Heaven or hell?
    ______
    Only time can tell'

    and

    '________
    Never get sick and never grow old
    The Devil's work is hell
    But it pays in fucking gold'
