Bank Of Bad Habits Lyrics

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

-Chorus-
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 got this bank of bad habits
In a corner of my soul

-Verse 2-
Last night I said good bye to a dear onld friend of mine
Just a throwback shell beach party nothing really asinine
Rum and cooked animals and bullshit by the ton
That party lasted way too long and I had way too much fun

-Repeat Chorus-

The wrong thing is the right thing
Until you lose control
I got this bank of bad habits
In a corner of my soul
That bank of bad habits
It's worth its weight in gold

-Bridge-
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 seven deadly sins

One
PRIDE-Thou shalt not have pride in thy neighbor

Two
COVETING-Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's wife

Three
LUST-Thou shalt not lust after his neighbor's wife

Four
ANGER-Do not be angry with your neighbor's wife

Five
GLUTTONY-Do not eat thy neighbor's wife's popcorn

Six
ENVY-Do not envy your neighbor's wife

Seven
SLOTH-Do not be a slob

And the eighth deadly sin is...
PIZZA

-Verse-
A picture's worth a thousand words just ask a camera man
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

-Repeat Chorus-

The wrong thing is the right thing
Until you lose control
I got this bank of bad habits
It's worth its weight in gold
Yea we're talkin
Kruggerand
Dubloon
You know I was wondering,
Do you think they have and ATM
Machine for Bad Habits?
I think I'll apply for that card
