Hell's Kitchen

Let’s make temptation
Feel like the right thing
Feather its outcome
With ribbons and string

Let’s make Sin’s poison
Look and taste rather nice
Let’s sweeten death’s symptoms
With sugar and spice

Let’s make the cost of love
Seem much too large
Let’s offer lots of stuff
At no extra charge

Let’s keep the sheep-ple
Distracted until
They find out too late
The full price of the thrill
