  • High and lonesome out on Times Square
    Haven't got a dime, ain't got a prayer
    Deliver us, Lord, from this golden calf
    People only want what they cannot have

    Forbidden fruit
    That's the fruit that you'd better not taste
    Forbidden fruit
    You've got one life that you'd better not waste

    How can I walk with this ball and chain?
    How can I land in this hurricane?
    Or is this part of man's evolution
    To be torn between truth and illusion?

    Forbidden fruit
    That's the route that you'd better not take
    Forbidden fruit
    Just watch out for the sign of the snake

    Little brother got caught in the web
    He ran off to join the living dead
    Been through the mill, seen the cross on the hill
    He sold his soul just for a thrill
    Forbidden fruit
    In hot pursuit out on a limb
    Forbidden fruit
    Your whole world is closing in
    You got the picture but missed the drift
    About me workin' the graveyard shift
    I never went in for no burglary
    But there's a stranger inside of me

    Forbidden fruit
    Don't you shoot the whole works away
    Forbidden fruit
    It's too high of a price to pay

    How can you hear with a bad connection?
    You can't see when there's no reception
    Keep your distance, don't fool with taboo
    'Cause it'll overtake and undertake you

    Forbidden fruit
    That's the fruit that you'd better not taste
    Forbidden fruit
    You've got one life that you'd better not waste
