Dead Kennedys - Moral Majority Lyrics

You call yourself the Moral Majority
We call ourselves the people in the real world
Trying to rub us out, but we're going to survive
God must be dead if you're alive

You say, 'God loves you. Come and buy the Good News'
Then you buy the president and swimming pools
If Jesus don't save 'til we're lining your pockets
God must be dead if you're alive

Circus-tent con-men and Southern belle bunnies
Milk your emotions then they steal your money
It's the new dark ages with the fascists toting bibles
Cheap nostalgia for the Salem Witch Trials

Stodgy ayatollahs in their dobble-knit ties
Burn lots of books so they can feed you their lies
Masturbating with a flag and a bible
God must be dead if you're alive

Blow it out your ass, Jerry Falwell
Blow it out your ass, Jesse Helms
Blow it out your ass, Ronald Reagan
What's wrong with a mind of my own?

You don't want abortions, you want battered children
You want to ban the pill as if that solves the problem
Now you wanna force us to pray in school
God must be dead if you're such a fool

You're planning for a war with or without Iran
Building a police state with the Ku Klux Klan
Pissed at your neighbour? Don't bother to nag
Pick up the phone and turn in a fag

Blow it out your ass, Terry Dolan
Blow it out your ass, Phyllis Schlafly
Ram it up your cunt, Anita
Cos God must be dead
If you're alive
God must be dead
If you're alive

    If Jello Biafra was still with the Dead Kennedys, I would have suggested that they be in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.  The band still exists without Jello, but he claims they have sold out and I'd advise not spending your money on their shows.

    Tyrion Lannister

    They would have probably told the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame to go fuck themselves.

    @Tyrion Lannister With a Dildo made of Reagans loose flesh and stuffed with his pocket change....

    20 + years later the song is still very much relevant.

  6. Drake Stavito

    This song inspired my bands name, "Moral Minority". I'm the lead singer Larry Falwell.


    No, you're Drake Stavito.
