       ŌTHE HOUSE THAT PRIDE BUILTĶ

                                                                                                                                  

 

 

 

TALKING INTRO (NURSERY RHYME)

 

 

 

THIS IS THE CRIME OF GLUTTONY

 

WHO HEARD FROM WRATH

 

WHO OVERHEARD GREED

 

WHO TALKED TO ENVY

 

WHO MARRIED SLOTH

 

AND SLEPT WITH LUST

 

CAUSE HER DISGUST

 

WHO LIVED IN THE HOUSE THAT PRIDE BUILT

 

 

 

 

 

 CHORUS

 

 

 

THIS IS THE TALE OF THE HOUSE THAT PRIDE BUILT

 

THE ONE WHOM NOWHERE IN HIS HEART THERE LIES GUILT

 

DESTROYING LIVES IS HIS AIM AND CLAIM TO FAME

 

JUST LIKE ITÕS A GAME, ITÕS HIS JOY, PRIDE IS HIS NAME

 

HE LIKES TO BRING DESTRUCTION, STAND BACK AND WATCH

 

SO HIS BELT OF DECEIT HE CAN ADD ANOTHER NOTCH

 

SEEKING PRAISE SINCE THE DAY PRIDE FELL FROM HEAVEN

 

PROUD FROM WHAT HE DID TO THE DEADLY SINS OF SEVEN

 

 

 

 

VERSE 1

 

 

 

ONCE UPON A TIME, THERE WAS A WIFE, HER NAME WAS LUST

 

WHO WAS EASY TO LOOK AT, BUT VERY HARD TO TRUST

 

SHE USED TO ONLY HAVE EYES FOR HER HUSBAND BEFORE

 

BUT NOW THE FEELINGÕS GONE AFTER FIVE YEARS OR MORE

 

THE DESIRES OF HER HEART WOULD NEVER LEAVE HER SATISFIED

 

LUSTING OVER THINGS SHE NEVER COULD HAVE, BUT ALWAYS TRIED

 

SHE SAID HOW SUDDENLY MY HUSBAND HAS NO LOVE FOR ME

 

AND HE LET HIMSELF GO, HIS NAME WAS GLUTTONY

 

GLUTTONY STARTED GETTING DEPRESSED FROM HER ASSUMPTION

 

AND TRIED TO HIDE HIS PAIN THROUGH ALCOHOL AND FOOD CONSUMPTION

 

HE PICKED UP SOME WEIGHT CAUSE EATING WAS HIS ONLY AIM

 

THIS MADE LUSTÕS DESIRE FOR HIM NO LONGER THE SAME

 

SHE SHARED THESE FEELINGS WITH HER MALE FRIEND, HIS NAME WAS ENVY

 

JEALOUS OF GLUTTONY, HEÕD SAY I WISH LUST WAS WITH ME

 

THIS OPENED UP THE DOOR FOR WHAT WAS GONNA TAKE PLACE

 

A SERIES OF EVENTS LUST WISH SHE COULD ERASE

 

 

 

 

CHORUS

 

 

 

 

 

VERSE 2

 

 

 

ENVY KEPT SAYING HOW GLUTTONY WAS LUCKY

 

AND HOW UNSATISFIED HIS FRIEND LUST NOW MUST BE

 

HIS MARRIAGE WAS NO BETTER WITH THOUGHTS OF RUNNING OFF

 

FROM LACK OF ATTENTION FROM HIS WIFE, HER NAME WAS SLOTH

 

SLOTH WAS LAZY, WANTING TO SLEEP THE WHOLE DAY THROUGH

 

NEVER RESPONDED TO THE THINGS ENVY WANTED TO DO

 

ENVY HAD A NEED IN WHICH SLOTH NEVER TOOK HEED

 

HE HAD ANOTHER FRIEND HEÕD TALK TO, HIS NAME WAS GREED

 

GREED WAS KIND OF STINGY, SELFISH TO THE CORE

 

HAD NO NEED FOR ANYTHING, HOWEVER WANTED MORE

 

GREED BEGAN TO ENCOURAGE ENVY, SHARING HIS VIEW

 

SAYING, HAVE AN AFFAIR WITH LUST, BE GREEDY, THATÕS WHAT I WOULD DO

 

SO ENVY STARTED THINKING, DEBATING, AND CONTEMPLATING

 

TAKING THE CHANCE FROM ALWAYS WAITING AND HESITATING

 

NEEDLESS TO SAY, ENVY AND LUST BECAME A PAIR

 

NO LONGER CARED OF THE OUTCOME OF HAVING THIS AFFAIR

 

 

 

 

CHORUS

 

 

 

 

 

VERSE 3

 

 

 

ENVY WAS CONTENT FROM HAVING WHAT GLUTTONY HAD

 

LUSTÕS DESIRES WERE SATISFIED, WHICH MADE HER GLAD

 

THIS WENT ON FOR A WHILE UNTIL GREED CROSSED A PATH

 

OF SOMEONE UNKNOWN, GLUTTONYÕS FRIEND, HIS NAME WAS WRATH

 

WRATH OVERHEARD A CONVERSATION ON THE BUS

 

BETWEEN GREED AND ENVY, GREED SAID HOW IS LUST

 

WRATH THOUGHT SOMEONE ELSE WITH HER NAME IT JUST COULD BE

 

UNTIL HE HEARD GREED SAY FORGET ABOUT GLUTTONY

 

LATER THAT DAY, WRATH TOLD GLUTTONY WHAT OCCURRED

 

AND EVERY WORD OF THE CONVERSATION THAT HE OVERHEARD

 

WRATHÕS ANGER ENTERED GLUTTONY UNTIL IT FILLED HIM

 

HE SAID IF IT WERE ME, THAT ENVY GUY, I WOULD KILL HIM

 

GLUTTONY SAID YOU DRIVE, WHEN SHE LEAVES, HER CAR WEÕLL TRAIL

 

FOLLOWED HER TO THE HOUSE OF ENVY, THEN WRATH YELLED

 

YO, THATÕS HIM, WITH HIS GUN, GLUTTONY LET OFF SHOTS

 

INSTANTLY KILLING ENVY, WHILE PRIDE LAUGHED AND WATCHED

 

 

 

 

 

CHORUS
