i got your invitation
to dinner on thursday night
send my excuses to the lord
but by then i'll be too far gone to drop by

i'm heading out in the morning
to the other side of this life
to where the evil who dress up
in a suit and a smile reside
i'll write this note and send it off
he'll stand up between courses and confide
in his company that he's been less than good
"even the son of god lets things slide"

and though i still loved him
i put that love up for sale
for a gallon of petrol
to get me started on my way

but you know how i hold on
to the things i give away
but i gotta let this dead love go
this ones driving me insane
but i saw him at the pumps
as i was going up to pay
so i hid and i watched him

forgive me please for my sins
but i didn't realise
that we could leave that place separately or together
and still hold that love inside

but he's up in heaven now
with an angel by his side
and i'm trying to warm my fingers
on these fabled coals of this fabled night
my life of sin and debauchery
will begin with the morrows sunrise
as i leave this life in the ashes
you can see when you look in my eyes
