YOU'RE ALL WRONG!
It's both : http://www.oz.net/~moz/lyrics/louderth/sweetand.htm, I read somewhere that the "debt" lines were a reference to a comedian Morrissey was a fan of...
Ah, from the Sources page...
Sweet And Tender Hooligan
"In the midst of life we are in debt"
Peter Cook & Dudley Moore
"In the midst of life we are in death"
Coleridge (adapted by Cook and Moore for their sketch)
Also from The Burial Service in the Book of Common Prayer
Damn it. :
I voted death.
But the last line is clearly debt.
I just heard 'debt' also in the last line. I just want to show weakness in admitting my wrongness quite yet.
edit: so it is both! haha, it is a twist.
