Lyrics

Who's gonna pay?

He rolled into the scene in a long limousine
Sharkskin suit and a fistful of green
He walked into the place and showed the room his face
Shouting out a verse of Amazing Grace
They all heard him say: "This is Judgment Day"
So put your hands in your pockets and throw the money my way.
He said "Come young and old, bring your silver and gold,
throw your coins in my pocket and I'll save your soul.

He knew it was wrong. He shoulda walked on.
But he strung them along. He shoulda walked on.


They all paid attention they gave him a reception
Turned their eyes to the prizes he had in his possession.
Cleverly invented, he knew what he intended,
Tearing holes in souls that would never be mended.
They followed his pretention, a perilous invention.
Through the glam and the sham of his frivolous redemption.
He knew that he was lyin', the truth he was denyin.
And as he rolled out of town the people started cryin'

He heard the angels:

'Who's gonna pay for what you've done?
In the light of day under the glaring Son?
When you're all alone on the far side of the river,
Who's gonna pay for what you've done?"


On the way out of town he heard the thunder crash
He saw the flames in the distance and the lightning flash.
Fear filled his soul and then he started cryin'
There was no way back to the highway for Zion
He uttered a petition on his way to Perdition
But there was no time left at a chance for remission.
He stood stone cold under the eyes of the Lord
Who said: "You got your money so you have your reward."
