Lyrics
The Sinner
© 2014 TMC

The sinner went to heaven
Looking for a holy cure
Archangels came to greet him
Offering to make him pure
But the Blessed Virgin Mary
Said we're all born with free will
A tiny taste of freedom
And a thirst we cannot fill

Don't take away the sinner
He's the only me I know
Scratching nails across the washboard
Trapping dreams I can't let go
Gasping upstream for a paddle
Stretching promises too thin
Don't you take away the sinner
He's the only me I've been

Don't you dare 'cuse me of sainthood
Or I'll stab you in the back
'got (or "cause") this rep I'm fond of stroking
Finds the street cred that I lack
Nominated by the devil
Praising Lucifer's good will
Don't you even think to call me
A close friend who'd never kill

Don't take away the sinner
He's the only me I know
Scratching nails across the washboard
Trapping dreams I can't let go
Gasping upstream for a paddle
Stretching promises too thin
Don't you take away the sinner
He's the only me I've been


Don't take away the sinner
He's the only me I know
Scratching nails across the washboard
Trapping dreams I can't let go
Gasping upstream for a paddle
Stretching promises too thin
Don't you take away the sinner
He's the only me I've been
