Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes – Original Sin Lyrics

Original Sin Lyrics – Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes

I’ve seen it with my own two eyes
The river fire, and the whipping lines
The cracking earth, and the boiling sea
I’ve seen the end of everything
I seen him up there, on his throne
Made out of my loved ones bones

I seen the devil, behind my words
The words I say when I feel hurt
And I hear the devil in the back of my mind
Not every day, just some of the time
Oh God, oh yeah, oh God, oh yeah

I seen him with my own two eyes
Lost and lustful, love’s desire
I watched him turn true love to hate
True love to filth, true love to waste
I seen him up there eating souls
Watched him ’cause my pain to flow

I seen the devil, behind my words
The words I say when I feel hurt
And I hear the devil in the back of my mind
Not every day, just some of the time
Oh God, oh yeah, oh God, oh yeah

I got Jesus in my head like a stinger
He moves from tree to tree in the back of my mind
A ragged shadowy figure, I got Him
I got original Sin, I got original Sin, I got original Sin

Can’t do right, I must be wrong
I’ve been running from the devil since the day I was born
Temptation is a bitch I can’t refuse
Her legs wide open in her high heeled shoes, I got him
I got original Sin, I got original Sin

I find myself on a deviant road
With the stoned and fallen women, where the bad blood flows
Where lost souls gather, crying in pain
Sad copulation, all trying in vain
To reach a destination that doesn’t exist
So we have another line, we have another kiss
And we got no love, we got no home
I’ll meet you down where the buffalo roam, I got him
I got original Sin, I got original Sin, I got original Sin
Sin, Sin Sin Sin Sin Sin
