Gorillaz - Hallelujah Money Lyrics




Here is our tree
That primitively grows
And when you go to bed
Scarecrows from the far east
Come to eat
Its tender fruits
And I thought the best way to protect our tree
Is by building walls
Walls like unicorns
In full glory
And galore
And even stronger
Than the walls of Jericho
But glad then my friend
Out in the field we shall reap a better day
What we have always dreamt of having
Are now for the starving
It is love, that is the root of all evil
But not our tree
And thank you my friend
For trusting me

Hallelujah
(Hallelujah)
Hallelujah money
(Past the chemtrails)
Hallelujah money
(Hallelujah money)
Hallelujah money
(Hallelujah money)
Hmmm
Hallelujah money
(Hallelujah)
Hallelujah money
(Oooh)

How will we know?
When the morning comes
We are still human
How will we know?
How will we dream?
How will we love?
How will we know?

Don't worry, my friend
If this be the end, then so shall it be
Until we say so, nothing will move
Ah, don't worry
It's not against our morals
It's legally tender
Touch, my friend
While the whole world
And whole beasts of nations desire
Power

When the morning comes
We are still human
How will we know?
How will we dream?
How will we love?
How will we know?

(Hallelujah money)
Hallelujah money
(Past the chemtrails)
Hallelujah money
(Hallelujah money)
Hmmm
Hallelujah money
(Hallelujah money)
Hallelujah money
(Oooh)
Hallelujah money
Hallelujah money
Hallelujah
Hallelujah money!

Gorillaz Hallelujah Money Comments
  1. Bob The U.K. Man

    The end scared the shit out of me

  2. Toddy Quinn

    Not really a fan of the song but lighting and visuals makes for a haunting music video

    Luke Smith

    Not to mention much of the prophetic verses that some claimed were directed at Trump (or any other politician for that matter) don't even make a ton of sense anymore, after a few years that is.



    If anything, it kind of highlights that each "side" in the political debate was and is still watching everything from a different screen, with each one telling a skewed story that is based on whatever the side wants to be hearing.

  3. Pink Diamond

    I literally just came for Spongebob. Carry on.

  4. Soshi The Yoshi

    I honestly only came for SpongeBob

  5. Sleighfinders

    I don't like this song because of it's confusing melody.
    But of course I'm not allowed to have that opinion because everyone here protects a song like it's their kid

    Hello I am Elias

    complains about not being allowed to have an opinion while critizing others for their opinion. wow

  6. Ginger McCormick

    This shit hits different at 1 am during exam week

  7. WerAdinTheHouse

    Whenever I listened to this song, I always imagine a picture about these new protestant sect members quake when their pastor preach about the "Holy $pirit".

  8. Lawrence Of Canadia

    you know you're a real gorillaz stan when you champion this piece of shit tune

    Danochy

    nah, it's the 4th best in the album, and a quality song

    Luke Smith

    @Danochy It's a quality song so long as you look past the politically charged undertones, i guess.

    Danochy

    @Luke Smith Hmm, what if I agree with said undertones?

    Luke Smith

    @Danochy Depends if you only ever listen to news with one political slant then.

  9. bgtvfrtgb

    Still watching 2019, Let's all just take a moment to appreciate how timely this was on the night before trumps inauguration. The bassist Murdoc called it "a lightning bolt of truth in a black night" and that's exactly what it felt like

  10. Ken Sánchez

    "Ahh, don't worry"

  11. CalebBurke 1234

    This song is already creepy, this makes it creepier

  12. Flew :3

    2019 e me perguntando porque essa música não teve a repercussão que merecia

  13. Mrdabmachine

    I love how offputting the visuals are, but how well they fit it

    Luke Smith

    Well yeah, the social climate at the time was offputting as can be come to think of it. Guess years later it stands as a reminder of how unsettling the change was for people, given it was blasted far out of proportion.

  14. Jesse Keel

    Wow just Wow!

  15. Licelot Diaz

    Here is our tree

    Fuck I remember being so excited for this record because this song was the first glimpse, then being so disappointed with the album.

  25. Michel Vera Codelia

    WHY EVERY COMMENTS ARE TOO LONG?!

  26. yugioh cazador raro

    Yeah you hear this dumty trumpty

  27. Luchingador

    what a brilliant song

  28. ToffeeCakes

    still waiting to move.

  29. ToffeeCakes

    I wanna recreate this in a hotel elevator.

  30. ultimate idiocy

    This mans cheekbones make him look like he's dead💀😂

  31. releasethekraken

    0:26 "when you go to bed, scarecrows from the far east come to yeet''


    truer words have never been spoken

    Mr. Glopy

    releasethekraken it’s “come to eat”

  32. Isaac munoz

    Two years ago did feel like a dream

  33. EmptyMT

    Ok so what the fuck

  34. [ O s w a l d ]

    Ese final papu :u

  35. Blinded Christian

    Just made a cover out of this song! Incredibly strong.. https://youtu.be/MKG_Un7m1kE

    Blinded Christian

    War must end..

  36. random account

    DitjykotchInc!

  37. Mary Hickey

    Liberal extremists

  38. curlzncrush

    Worst Gorillaz song ever. And it hasn't aged well at all

    Hello I am Elias

    You're wrong but that's ok don't worry.

  39. Grace Gama

    I love this guy's voice soooo much!!! God, it flows like honey.

  40. Slade Wilson

    The song and video are about materialism, greed, the state of the United States financially/geopolitically, and more, yet one reference to a contentious individual and all of the sudden the song is a personal attack on that individual. Take your head out of your ass, take off your blinders, and see the WHOLE song, beyond the surface level and understand the MESSAGE. The way some are reacting is comparable to me saying "I went running early in the morning" in the middle of a conversation then a person assuming the entire conversation has to do with waking up early and subsequently checking out and acting like a child because they don't like waking up early.

  41. arturleaorf

    Why did I sleep on this for so long


    Also is all the footage protected under fair use or did they pay to license all of it because some of it seems like it would be pretty expensive to license

  42. Wafl Man

    You know, returning to this song after 2 years, this really is a profound and beautiful song and I regret disliking it for so long.


    Most the rest of Humanz still pretty meh though 🤷‍♀️

  43. Vawtunanes

    coming back to this song after a couple of years I can't believe I just dismissed it. fantastic.

  44. Стёпы больше нет

    What's movie on the 2:08's second? Pleeeeeeas!

    BardEagle

    Baraka, but it was also used in the game Sid Meiers Alpha Centauri.

  45. cardigansarecool

    I’m not really a Gorillaz fan but this is an amazing tune. Unfortunate that so many of their fans are close minded and just want mindless pop songs that don’t challenge them

  46. Стёпы больше нет

    It is absolutely new level of popular culture

  47. StoneBoy 007

    I’m adding this to my mixtape.

  48. Cold Fusion

    i am scared

  49. Nolan busemmi

    This video fucking scares me

  50. UniQueLyEviL

    How did I not realize he collabed with Gorillaz

  51. imnotgay 1918

    Benjamin got a beautiful voice

  52. Threelly AI

    A normal conversation

  53. carter

    4:23 click on this to get jumpscared

  54. Anca Pop

    Marfa piesa!

  55. Elastro Nauta

    I love Gorillaz, but i don't like this song :p
    Btw, Gorillaz is one of the best things in my life <3

  56. Goatboy and Friends

    Yeah, I know this song is symbolized by politicians like Trump in 2016 but this is still Gorillaz.

    Dark lyrics, weird genre, beautiful voice.

  57. SJC

    Donald Trump and Spongebob are all canon in Gorillaz lore thanks to this video. Wow.

  58. VOID

    well this is shit

  59. mario manuel

    I loved gorillaz so much and my life is somewhat connected to them lol they formed around the time I was born, I rediscovered them when I crossed the border from Mexico and they released this song on my 19th birthday

    curlzncrush

    I'm calling ICE

  60. Rolando Zarate

    I don't like this song,is boring.

  61. Ian 129

    0:45 animal farm?

  62. V DeBlois

    Do not watch this on acid 🤩

  63. MeeMo

    Can someone explain the meaning of the video to me? I mean I think that it’s about worshipping money, but can someone explain it in depth? Like what the images behind him mean? I see that they referenced Animal Farm :0

  64. Robin Wright

    'gorillaz is getting so political ugh sjws' You Do Not Understand This Band At All!

  65. ThePainkiller347

    so weird

  66. The-Island of-Sicily

    This video honestly unsettles me for the glorious lighting, singing and acting... I love it.

  67. White Fire

    Freaking Spongebob... I love this band

  68. JJack

    When does it get good?

    The CIA

    at 0:00

  69. jh72826 Harris

    2016 was a terrible year I think this video is kinda like benjamine reflecting on the past(through media) showing all the horrible and scary things that happen. And the lyrics is him coming to terms with the fact he can't predict what's gonna happen in the future but as long as we have love things will be ok.

  70. Delia Avila Duran

    Im a a fan of Gorillaz but this song Is...a sheet

  71. The Ultimate Girlfriend

    🗣CHEEKBONES!!!!!!!!!

  72. BigHero6Fanatic2004

    What I love about this music video of Hallelujah Money is the ending because of SpongeBob crying 😂

    R.I.P. Stephen Hillenburg

  73. Itsnotked

    I’m glad that they gave more attention to Benjamin, he deserves it
    And also stop bashing on this song, they’re making more money than you so who gives you the right to talk shit

    tweee keee

    Well idk if u know about Benjamin but he said that gorillaz was a big mistake in his career.and bashed somebody’s mom too . So i kinda lost respect

    The CIA

    "They make more money than you, so you can't criticize them"

  74. It'sUrsaC

    I dunno why, but I get really emotional at the part where 2D sings... But then again, I cried when somebody killed a beetle in the bee movie, so maybe I'm just weird.

  75. jean paul :v

    like si hablas español :3

  76. Eatta Cheesepaw

    Am I the only one who hears a male Garnet?

  77. 23 Heathrow

    Spongebob

  78. 6joe16ful

    i remember tripping acid to this some


    "we're only human. how will me know"
    me: i don't know. you're asking the wrong guy...

  79. Joel Felipe

    3:45 Clint Eastwood?

  80. Joel Felipe

    This is creepy, weird and amazing

  81. HollyBlueAgitated

    but why the Spongebob clip tho

  82. Aww Man

    that background beeping is making me uneasy...

  83. Jeannice Ferrier

    I'm obcessed with this song and its video. It's so immersive, elevating. Totally transporting. I get so emotional i feel my chest lifting, almost moves me to tears, it gives me shivers.

    One of, or my favorite of the band.
    So many layers to uncover and experience.

  84. odd jack

    Spongebob at the end just made this a million times better

  85. Cyborg Noodle

    Why is spongebob in this video? Not that I'm complaining

  86. K-leb

    So it's been a couple years.
    In hindsight, I think the message of both this song and the entire album was a bit too on-the-nose, but overall I really like this song. It's so haunting, and it was such a bold move to release it as their first song in several years.

    B.H.theBadass

    Well to be fair Demon Days and Plastic Beach were also very on the nose about their message as well.

  87. TheMightyP2 -MeetPauloC

    My third favorite song of Gorillaz, also i dunno why people hate it because it talks about the politic things and this wasn't yhe first thing Gorillaz have .ade like this i mean Like protest

  88. Zachary Plymel

    0:53 the cartoon being played behind him is about communism, i watched it in sixth grade.

  89. Clarissa boomboom

    Actually i didn't see any dislike comments at all even i scroll down in the bottom, ok this song is okay for me its still good to hear and that political message is actually right. Well i like gorillaz most because the genre song hip hop, electronic, and others, but this is something new for me so i need to get use to it, but its good to hear tho and very lovely. My only problem is difference and stuff and maybe if i ask someone to listen to this, i think they wouldn't believe me at all this is a gorillaz song that's all. 👌👌

  90. Monica Lopez

    Dude now this is a drug trip that will frick you up

  91. Monica Lopez

    Spongebob at the end though

  92. Monica Lopez

    Shurch with 1000000cups of coffee

  93. bigdogstatus_ nosecret11

    First look at the return, gotta say, 10yo me was hyped as fuck.

  94. LightBoiZac

    0:53 I'm sorry, but is that a Gorillaz cosplayer with inverted colors?

  95. James Sullivan

    0:45 lol we watched that in school after I watched this video

  96. ahatbears

    0:44 Animal Farm

  97. electronictaco53

    Thank God the full album wasn't this fetid. Well-written lyrics suffocated in a mire of vocal and melodic absurdity. Tries to be the final two tracks of Demon Days and misses the mark completely, imo.

  98. Masker Cry

    Que demonios es esto

  99. The Latiator

    Those visuals might all be scary.. But that silhouette 2-D is honestly the most haunting..

    StayLegendary

    The Latiator I just love the way it moves though. Almost mechanical in a way.
