  ORIGINAL SIN

I've been looking for an original sin
One with a twist and a bit of a spin
And since I've done all the old ones
'Till they've all been done in
Now I'm just looking—then I'm gone with the wind
Endlessly searching for an original sin…

You can dance forever, you got a fire in your feet
But will it ever be enough? You know that it'll never be enough!
You can fly and never land and never need to sleep
But will it ever be enough? You know that it'll never be enough!

It's not enough to make the nightmares go away
Not enough to make the tears run dry
Not enough to live a little better every day

Everything that they taught us was nothing but lies
Everything that they brought us was nothing but bribes
(but it'll all be over now)

All I wanted was a piece of the night
I never got an equal share
When the stars are out of sight and the moon is down
The natives are so restless tonight…

I've been looking for an original sin
One with a twist and a bit of a spin
And since I've done all the old ones
'Till they've all been done in
Now I'm just looking—then I'm gone with the wind
Endlessly searching for an original sin…

You can loose yourself in pleasure 'till your body's going numb
But will it ever be enough? You know that it'll never be enough!
You can always take whatever you conceivably could want
But will it ever be enough? You know that it'll never be enough!

It's not enough to make the nightmares go away
Not enough to make the tears run dry
Not enough to live a little better every day

Everything that they taught us was nothing but lies
Everything that they brought us was nothing but bribes
(but the lies are over now)

All I wanted was a piece of the night
I never got an equal share
When the stars are out of sight and the moon is down
The natives are so restless tonight…

I've been looking for an original sin
One with a twist and a bit of a spin
And since I've done all the old ones
'Till they've all been done in
Now I'm just looking for an original sin…

I've been looking for the ultimate crime
Infinite victims, infinitesimal time
And I'm so very guilty for no reason or rhyme
Now I'm just looking and I'm killing some time
Endlessly searching for the ultimate crime…

I've been looking for an original sin
One with a twist and a bit of a spin
And since I've done all the old ones
'Till they've all been done in
Now I'm just looking—then I'm gone with the wind
Endlessly searching for an original sin…

I'm applying for a license to thrill
Going out on the edge
Moving in for the kill

And there'll be hell to pay someday
So put it all on the bill
'Cause we'll always be paying
And paying until
We're beyond expiration
With a license to thrill....
