Paid the Piper for your damned religion
Lookin' up at the stars for signs of it
Bet on mercenaries like twin race cars
Tell me why this corruption ain't all your fault

Waiting by the yard your fine
Children's guns they fire by night
Bullets in the dark
Your life it's hard

So you bring it up baby
Just let it down again
And say the world has screwed you
Because you're buying everything
There's a price to be in heaven
Cuz lord it ain't for free
You need divine intervention
Come sanctify me

Wait for him in the back he's got your dough
There've got to be taxes so let the murders grow
What's wrong with this boy his neck is snapped
You better run from the police cuz they've got your ass


Waiting by the yard your fine
Children's guns they fire by night
Bullets in the dark
Your life it's hard

So you bring it up baby
Just let it down again
And say the world has screwed you
But you're buying everything
There's a price to be in heaven
Cuz lord it ain't for free
You need divine intervention
Come sanctify me

Run Jack Run, Run Jack Run

So you bring it up baby
Just let it down again
And say the world has screwed you
But you're buying everything
There's a price to be in heaven
Cuz lord it ain't for free
You need divine intervention
Come sanctify me
