Bank Of Bad Habits Lyrics

The rumors and the stories of my past I can't deny
I'm no Saint Ignatius but again I'm no barfly
The wrong thing is the right thing until you lose control
I've got this bank of bad habits in a corner of my soul

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've got this bank of bad habits in a corner of my soul

Last night, I said, goodbye to a dear old friend of mine
Just a throw back shell beach party, nothin' really asinine
Rum and cooked animals and bullshit by the ton
That party lasted way too long and I had too much fun

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've got this bank of bad habits in a corner of my soul
That bank of bad habits is worth its weight in gold

Time for you to spend that dough
You're 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 7 Deadly Sins
1. Pride, Thou shalt not have pride in thy neighbor
2. Coveting, Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's wife
3. Lust, Thou shalt not lust after his neighbor's wife
4. Anger, Do not be angry with your neighbor's wife
5. Gluttony, Do not eat thy neighbor's wife's popcorn
6. Envy, Do not envy your neighbor's wife
7. Sloth, Do not be a slob
And the eighth deadly sin is, Pizza}

A picture's worth a thousand words just ask a cameraman
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
Or trouble is what you will find inside some stranger's bed

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've got this bank of bad habits
It's worth its weight in gold

Yeah, we're talkin' Krugerrands, doubloons
I was wonderin', do you think
They have an ATM machine for bad habits?
I think I'll apply for that card
