Leave Me With The Sinners

This song is by John Butler and appears on the album The Loyal Serpent (1997).

There won't be no hell
Or grand design
You don't believe it
Well, check the file
Leave me with the sinners
And the warmth of the vice

I've got plenty to learn
And plenty to see
I must admit comes pretty easily
Leave me with the sinners
And the warmth of the vice
Yeah, leave me with the sinners
And the warmth of the vice

The fish won't die
'Cause the dam won't burst
There won't be a flood nor fire
There won't be people like you
Bugging the door of those who try

The gut brown earth
Is my only friend
Don't need to be born over again
Leave me with the sinners
And the warmth of the vice, mm-hmm...

Well, the river may rise
But it has before
And the sun may glow at night
But still no flood
Nor raging fire, right
Leave me with the sinners
And the warmth of the vice
Hey-ey-ey

What do you say?
Give it some thought
How can you be so sure?
Just being alive
Ain't that enough?
Leave me with the sinners
And the warmth of the vice

There won't be babies
Playing with the lion
Your picture is a lie
And the worm won't turn
To the eagle's eye at night

It's just a game
A twisted cabaret
You want my soul?
Well, mister, you will have to pay
Or leave me with the sinners
And the warmth of the vice
Ah-ah, leave me with the sinners
And the warmth of the vice
