To get what you want
Whatever you need
In the hour of temptation
You listen to me
You have no choice, no freedom, no time
God is a criminal, you are the crime

The first step is hard
And frightening as hell
You tremble like Adam
On the morning man fell
But time will wrap a melody around all your wrongs
The minor chords in a beautiful song

'Til nothing compares
And anything goes
Now heaven is haunted
And God is a ghost
And every new lover feels like a rebirth
And you can't get enough of this bountiful earth

Then one day you stop
Dead in your tracks
You reel for a moment
The criminal's back
And you stare at the blood on his hands and his feet
But he won't look away until your eyes meet
