money

Postby ness » Wed Jul 17, 2013 10:59 am

Money money, ringing in your tills,
Calling us to worship,
The hundred dollar bills.

Bend our knees in wonder,
Bow our heads in awe,
At the power of the liar,
Who now controls us all.

From the darkest deep caverns,
To the stars in the sky,
From the infinite universe,
To the strangers passing by.

From your inner most conviction,
To your laughing in the night,
From everything you 're seeing,
To everything out of sight.

The new God has risen,
To claim the holy throne,
The one that we have emptied,
Our hearts all cold as stone.

The throne that we have emptied,
We killed the rightful king,
Sold his crown an sceptre,
Pawned his sacred ring.

Raised his bleeding body,
Up on that bloody hill,
The silent lamb still bleeding,
As the money fills your till.
