The Things We Do For Money

The things we do , the things we do
The things we do for money
The things we do , the things we do
Or the things we do for love

Merciless at the bite of a snake
Grips you're dying soul for all it can take
‘Till you don’t feel pain anymore
And you won’t feel the pain in store

Chorus

A gun-for-hire or a sex slave
Integrity falls dead to the grave
And you don’t see right anymore
No you don’t see the closing door

Chorus

Daredevils' gonna take a chance
Higher the risk, better the dance
It taste so good like never before
It taste so good but you still want more

Chorus

Is there a truth better than lies?
Did we forget now let's open our eyes
Why in the world, in the world can’t we look from inside?
Let’s hope to God there’s a way, a way to get by

Selling dreams to empty hands
Feels like getting burned on hot desert lands
You feel the heat like never before
Yeah, you feel the heat but you still want more

Chorus
