Killing Joke - Money Is Not Our God Lyrics




Nine tenths of the law than sic
Is possession
Life expressed in matter is a blasphemy
Success defined by aquisition stinks!
So busy trying to make a living I forgot about living
Yes I do
So busy trying to make a living I forget about life

The best things I found in life were my birthright
Green fields mean more to me than a brand new car
Will you swap your hi-fi for a clear blue sky?
Will you cash in all your shares for Gods clean air?
Is your answer yes, or no, to these painful truths?
Is your answer yes, or no, to these painful truths?

Do you grovel to your master?
Do you beg like a dog?
First things first, repeat to yourself
AHHH MONEY! Money is not our GOD!

Mine!
The best things in life are free
Mine!
I own the beach and the blazing sunset
Mine!
I own the waves and the fresh air
Mine!
I drink the milk of the stars in this beautiful moment
Say to yourself
ALL THESE THINGS ARE MINE!

Repeat after me!
Money's not our God

Do you grovel to your master?
Do you beg like a dog?
First things first, repeat to yourself
AHHH MONEY!

    Radio Unit Money Shifter Is Not Our Friendly God

  5. Miner 79'er

    Everytime
    I go against my true nature I generate money, for them and me. Everytime I go
    against the money, I become happier.

    This
    is some kind of Law, beyond the mass of Shit that people have piled onto this
    beautiful planet.

    The
    Shit is the Fake God Paper Money, which makes Monkeys out of me and you.

  6. Gilles Saïssi

    MASTER PIECE

  7. Mustardgas203

    Fuck Trent Reznor and Nice shot man.
    I pretty much hate machine.

  8. Miner 79'er

    Who is the drummer?

    Richard Hughes

    Retro Longplays 79 Martin Atkins, formally drummer for PIL.

  9. stevehensonuk

    money is NOT currency - learn the difference

    stevehensonuk

    Indeed - hope more people can discover the differnce - it took me a while, then I got really angry and started buying precious metals

  10. Vladimir Vendeyes

    Radio Friendly Unit Shifter > Money Is Not Our God

  11. samantha lewin

    Ohhh, that lovely, big guitar, with that lovely, rich sound....

    indiglo1971

    It's a Gretsch.

  12. Adam Robb

    The universe shrank because Steve ledger stole my spell book

  13. DJ Davis

  15. plyuha

    I get to know about so much good music from people saying that it was "ripped of by Nirvana".Thanks Nirvana!

  16. divinefallfromgrace

    I love how the unjustly harsh criticism of the "Outside The Gate" album fuelled KJ to make this dark, seething cold fury of a record! One big middle finger to the 'conventional' 😎

    Satyros Phil Brucato

    To be fair, Outside the Gate IS bloody awful. But this record is magnificent.

  17. Alejandro Mv

    kurt did it again

  18. Miner 79'er

    Mankind makes me sick.

  19. Ned Poole

    Geordie is a God:-)))

    samantha lewin

    Ned Poole

    Very underrated guitarist and very good looking.

    Devin Svennson

    Don't forget Martin Atkins

  20. John Hobley II

    KJ is criminally underrated,OK? I saw them on this tour 4 free,they poured out cheap champagne 🍾 into the audience,the drummer even busted the bass drum,so they had 2 pause 4 the cause,see?

    It was also the last days of slam dancing,right b4 the metal community took it over,renaming it moshing,oh well?

    Good times,and I got the hookup,COOL!

    LONG LIVE KJ

  21. Carlos Alberto Trujillo Ruiz

    🤟🏼

  22. Rory Bell

    OK, who are the 3 people who gave this a thumbs down? WTF is wrong with some people?

  23. Marc Batko

    Denial, distraction and a corrupt corporate media can lead to de-politization. Federal judge Orrick in CA ruled Trump can't punish Sanctuary states. But the corrupt media only talks of hypocrites like Mulvaney who said children deprived of school lunches are better students!

    The GOP tax bill has at least 1000 mistakes (taking $6 billion from HUD, trillions from Medicaid and food stamps and $460 billion from Medicare are examples). Are they waiting for the next 1000?

    Tax bills should close tax havens and end tax competition. Tax fairness means McDonald servers shouldn't pay more tax than the parent company! Profit shifting enables McD, Google, Amazon, Apple, Facebook, Nike, GE and Microsoft to declare profits in mailbox firms in miniature states.

    If the tax giveaway passes, the term "honest Republican" becomes an oxymoron like "military intelligence." More at www.freembtranslations.net ,www.openculture.com and www.grin.com

  24. Stephan Venner

    Prophetic Lyrics. We are living in the Age of Greed!

  25. Paul Baker Jones

    The Extreme Truth is Frightening.

  26. Tad Somato

    I was at the live show in this video, front row, at the Metro in Chicago. The video itself was recorded before the show started, probably three takes. I went home with Geordie's setlist and some fake Yankee dollars. ;)

    Chris Tharp

    Saw them in '03 at the Metro. One of the best shows I've ever seen.

    Monjeseñal

    TheAnalPunisher

    Defrap22

    Other way around

  35. Scott Munsey

    What a great song. so accurate it's scary! Thanks forsharing

  36. Jean Kuldieu

    ATWArrior , til' thee final Battle !

  37. Austin Lucas

    Nothing else like a bath of fire to get the deep down dirt out of me like a car having a few oil and filter changes...

  38. Austin Lucas

    Here's my suggestion to you: Don't let money decide your life just because it's "fruitful", there's such a thing as the daily grind which is *not fun.* I had a nightmare with dozens upon dozens of people of many ages on the sides of the road, in daily grind machines and all were sleeping while being ground to nothing. ARE YOU RECEIVING ME? I wasn't in the machines, it was like that Star Trek episode with legal (and expected to be used) suicide booths on the sides. They were all used until Kirk and crew blew up the computer.

  39. Austin Lucas

    Money is only useful when it is used (saving it for a good time is OK), hoarding it to no purpose is equivalent to burying perishable food expecting it to be near as valuable later. It NEEDS to be active to be useful. I'm not saying to throw it away, I'm not saying to waste it.

  40. Austin Lucas

    I'm crying, This song is beautiful.

    Discharge Summary

    Austin Lucas are you still crying three years later???

    Defrap22

    @Discharge Summary i cry for him

  41. zsantschi

    Where can I find this version?... It's listed as the "Babylon Dub"... but that isn't correct.

    grrizo

    +zsantschi On the album? Maybe.

    zsantschi

    +Grrizo Nope... The only versions available to buy are remixes.

    grrizo

    I didn't say "buy it" ;)

    samantha lewin

    Extremities, dirt and other repressed emotions.

  42. Austin Lucas

    I don't have anything against Diamonds in their _good_ context _where they really do belong_, but I will note that I saw a diamond commercial before this video started.

    Lyrics (are they spelled properly? I copied and pasted most of them.):

    "Nine tenths of the law that's sick
    Is possession

    So busy trying to make a living I forgot about living
    Yes I do

    Is your answer yes, or no, to these painful truths?

    Do you grovel to your master?
    Do you beg like a dog?
    First thing's first; repeat to yourself
    Ahhh money! Money is *not our god!*

    Pushing it!
    Do like this!

    Mine!
    The best things in life are free

    Mine!
    I own the waves and the fresh air
    Mine!
