The Sin Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

It's none of my business but if I may
Remind you of the time when you did something
You knew was wrong, it wasn't called a crime
And I'm not saying that you should give

A sucker an even break, I'm talking about the time
That you were cruel for cruelty's sake
I'm talking about the time
That you were cruel for cruelty's sake

How you gonna pay for
How you gonna pay for
How you gonna pay for the sin?

How you gonna pay for
How you gonna pay for
How you gonna pay for the sin?

Maybe you went and stuck your key
In somebody else's door
Maybe you went and helped yourself
To something that wasn't yours

Maybe you simply criticized
Someone you hardly knew
You ruined part of their life for them
Part of your own life, too

How you gonna pay for
How you gonna pay for
How you gonna pay for the sin?

How you gonna pay for
How you gonna pay for
How you gonna pay for it then?

If and when you feel an ill wind
Don't be too surprised
Remember when you should have
Picked on somebody your own size

How you gonna pay for
How you gonna pay for
How you gonna pay for the sin?

How you gonna pay for
How you gonna pay for
How you gonna pay for the sin?

How am I gonna pay for
How am I gonna pay for
How am I gonna pay for the sin?
