    Lyrics

    I'd sell your heart to the junkman baby
    For a buck, for a buck
    If you're looking for someone to pull you out of that ditch
    You're out of luck, you're out of luck

    Ship is sinking
    The ship is sinking
    The ship is sinking

    There's a leak, there's a leak in the boiler room
    The poor, the lame, the blind
    Who are the ones that we kept in charge?
    Killers, thieves and lawyers

    God's away, God's away
    God's away on business, business
    God's away, God's away
    God's away on business, business

    Digging up the dead with a shovel and a pick
    It's a job, it's a job
    Bloody moon rising with a plague and a flood
    Join the mob, join the mob
    It's all over, it's all over
    It's all over

    There's a leak, there's a leak in the boiler room
    The poor, the lame, the blind
    Who are the ones that we kept in charge?
    Killers, thieves and lawyers

    God's away, God's away
    God's away on business, business
    God's away, God's away on business, business

    Godddamn there's always such a big temptation
    To be good, to be good
    There's always free cheddar in a mousetrap, baby
    It's a deal, it's a deal

    God's away, God's away
    God's away on business, business
    God's away, God's away
    God's away on business, business

    I narrow my eyes like a coin slot baby
    Let her ring, let her ring

    God's away, God's away
    God's away on business, business
    God's away, God's away
    God's away on business, business
