Where do you go when your conscience takes over
Do you crawl to your corner and cry.
Did you imagine, that no one would notice
Just a secret to take when you die.

All the world is watching you, every tongue is screaming fool.

How are your dreams, do they claw at your sleep
Making darkness a place you despise,
Where is the god, that once was your strength
Are you sure he was there from the start.

All the world is watching you, nowhere you can hide,
Every tongue is screaming fool, only Satan hears your cries.

When you sin cardinal sin, you make your bed and on it you must lie,
And your futures looking grim, but did you ever give a damn
About the child, he's running wild.
When you sin cardinal sin, don't expect the world will treat you well,
We say oh, go to hell.

We point the finger, sin cardinal sin, laugh in your face, sin cardinal sin,
We point the finger, laugh in your face,
'Cause you're no better than the rest of the human race.

Oh sin cardinal sin, oh sin cardinal sin.
