Thou Shalt Not

This song is by Kiss and appears on the album Revenge (1992).

I lived most of my life in New York City
Born and raised in the promised land
One day this man in black said, "Listen Jack"
Told me I was chosen to kiss the ring on his hand

He said, "Kindly reconsider the sins of your past."
And I said, "Mister you can kindly kiss my ass"

(Thou shalt not) but I know what I want (Thou shalt not)
(Thou shalt not) but I know what I need (Thou shalt not)

Well, the son of a bitch must be crazy
Tellin' me I'm gonna go down
I said, "This ain't the inquisition, you ain't the son of God
And I sure as hell don't give a damn."

He said, "You're long gone, can't you tell?"
And I said "Mister, if I'm goin', I'll see you in hell! Yeah!"

(Thou shalt not) but I know what I want (Thou shalt not)
(Thou shalt not) but I know what I need (Thou shalt not) yeah
(Thou shalt not) I'm gonna live my life (Thou shalt not)
(Thou shalt not) Any way I please (Thou shalt not)

Don't even try, you know I'd die to be free, oh yeah
And you wonder why, you can't bring this guy to his knees

'Cause I know what I want
Yes, I know what I need
Well, I know what I want, I know what I need
I gotta live my life just the way I please, oh yeah

Yes, I know what I want
Yeah

(Thou shalt not, Thou shalt not)
(Thou shalt not, Thou shalt not)
(Thou shalt not) But I know what I want (Thou shalt not)
(Thou shalt not) Oh, yes I do (Thou shalt not)
(Thou shalt not) I'm gonna live my life (Thou shalt not)
(Thou shalt not) Any way I choose (Thou shalt not)

Yeah
You got that right
