Artist's Notes

This song is about the power of desire and guilt. A religious guy has gone to a gambling establishment to protest it as immoral, but he ends up not being able to take his eyes off one of the women who works there 

Lyrics

Pull The Lever

 

(Verse 1)

I'm in a den of iniquity

You're only here to preach to me

But I think you like what you see

I see the way you look at me


(Chorus)

Well,

Pull the lever

You're a believer

 

(Verse 2)

Don't knock my den of iniquity

This fog of smoke helps me to breathe

There's nothing here that you can teach

I see the way you look at me

 

(Pre Chorus)

As if I am a one arm bandit machine

A terrible curse or a wonderful dream

 

(Chorus)

Well,

Pull the lever

You're a believer

You might make it to heaven

Pull the lever

You're a believer

 

(Verse 3)

Mired in a world of antiquity

A life spent on bended knees

Burst your shackles and be free

I see the way you look at me

 

(Pre Chorus)

As if I am a one arm bandit machine

A terrible curse or a wonderful dream


(Chorus)

Well,

Pull the lever

You're a believer

You might make it to heaven

Well,

Pull the lever

You're a believer

You might make it to heaven

Well,

Pull the lever

You're a believer

If there is one

Pull the lever

 

(Bridge)

Well, slide over here and put down your placard

I know that you've got a black heart,

And I see the way that you're staring

Desire piercing the armour you're wearing

And you might just make it to heaven

You might just make it to heaven

 

(Whispered)

C?mon, make it to Heaven with me


(Verse 4)

Unused to this world of ambiguity

You came here to preach to me

But looks like you don?t want to leave

I see the way that you look at me

 

(Pre Chorus)

As if I am a one arm bandit machine

A terrible curse or a wonderful dream


(Chorus)

Well,

Pull the lever

You're a believer

And you might just make it to heaven

Well,

Pull the lever

You're a believer

You might just make it to heaven

Well,

Pull the lever

You're a believer

 

(Outro)

Pull three Lucky Sevens

For your trip to Heaven
