Skunk Anansie - Selling Jesus Lyrics




YOU KILL ME WITH YOUR SMELLY FINGERS
YOUR SMELLY FINGERS FROM THE SEX YOU HAD ON CHRISTMAS DAY
AND NOW YOU SAY YOU`RE FEELING GUILTY
YOU`RE FEELING GUILTY `COS YOUR GOD WAS SHINING ON YOUR FACE

YOU GO TO CHURCH AND LIGHT A CANDLE
AND THEN YOU`RE BLINDED BY THE LIGHT FROM THE GOLDEN PEWS
THE DEVIL`S SNAPPING YOUR TOES NOW
BECAUSE THE ANGELS CAN`T BE BOTHERED TO LIVE WITH YOU

THEY`RE SELLING JESUS AGAIN
THEY`RE SELLING JESUS AGAIN
THEY WANT YOUR SOUL AND YOUR MONEY YOUR BLOOD AND YOUR VOTES

THEY`RE SELLING JESUS AGAIN
SELLING LOVE TO YOU - SELLING LOVE

YOU`RE BUYING THIS YOU`RE BUYING THAT NOW
YOU`RE WISHING ALL THE MONEY IN THE WORLD BELONGED TO YOU
YOU`RE CRUCIFIED UPON YOU`RE OWN CROSS NOW
YOU`RE GIVIN` MONEY TO THE WHITE MEN IN THE WHITE LIMO

THAT KIND OF GOD IS ALWAYS MAN-MADE
THEY MADE HIM UP THEN WROTE A BOOK TO KEEP YOU ON YOUR KNEES
THEY GET THEIR THEORIES FROM THE SAME PLACE
THEN BUILD A CHURCH IF THERE`S SOME MONEY LEFT
FROM LYING ON THE BEACH

    🤔🤔🤔I love the Skunk Anansie. The wonderful Skin is the ideal vocalist for a hard rock and alternative metal band. Honestly I am not imagining another singer for this alternative metal band from the UK. They started their artistic career in 1994 and have been successful since their first studio album released in 1995, PARANOID & SUNBURNT, #8 on The official UK albums. In 1996 came STOOSH (#9 on THE OFFICIAL UK ALBUMS CHART) who also had great commercial success across Europe, as well as the fabulous third record label POST ORGASMIC CHILL in 1999 (#16 on THE OFFICIAL UK ALBUMS CHART). Fortunately , I have these three albums and the greatest hits collection, SMASHES AND THRASHES (2009) (#74 on THE OFFICIAL UK ALBUMS CHART) in CD format. After a hiatus, they returned in 2009 with a greatest hits, SMASHES AND THRASHES. From then on, Skin and her heavy rock band have been editing new albums and continuing concerts... I love you all! 😍😍😍💯

  5. çağrı aydın

    What a brilliant album this was, every single song is a true masterpiece. damn I miss 90s...

  6. TaciturnBadger2

    Skin is one of the greatest female vocalists of all time and gets 0% of the credit she deserves en masse. If that isn't proof that the "obvious factors" aren't factors......... I dunno what is.

  7. jerry dun

    Thanks, Howard stern!

  8. Marco Sousa

    Best powerful song of skunk anansie real lyrics

  14. onpsxmember

    Lemmy from Motörhead brought me here. He mentioned them in an interview from metalinsider when The Wörld is Yours! came out.

  15. Frank Lippert

    Skunk Anansie: quintessential 90s

  16. Mara Marx x

    SKIN's beautiful voice, like many 'not so well knowns' singers

  17. UnsoundMethodUK

  18. bacontrees

    First time I heard this song was on Strange Days movie and I got goosebumps! I just clicked and found it and....goosebumps again! HFS!!

  19. El Hespíritu

    The song was the best of the film.
    I barely remember the movie, but I'll always remeber the tune.

    Michael B.

  24. Rob Greene

    This isn't necessarily my favorite song, but this is a song that sounds unbelievable on a jukebox

  25. Fred Miriam

    Merry christmas!

  26. Rob Greene

    who does she think she is michael j fox

  27. Erasmus SixFiftyFour

    Another highly underrated song from an equally highly underrated British band, from a soundtrack of a (somewhat less) underrated (but still underrated) movie called "Strange Days".
    While the movie should by rights have been long since aged out of relevance, due to the uniquely singular then-future-now-past time period in which it was set, it's actually become MORE RELEVANT , not less. Why? Because as the nature of our current sociopolitical idiot-based GOP- disintegration--realization tantrums grow ever more panicked, desperate, and paranoid-stupid, they also occur more often and revolve around ever more absurd issues.
    The technology at the heart of the story is also nearing actuality, which helps as well. The themes of police brutality and escalating violence, along with the seeming indifference to the suffering of those least capable of defending themselves is also obviously MORE relevant today than it was when the film was made, sadly.
    Great writing, phenomenal acting, a twisting and satisfying plot, and a surprisingly emotional, hopeful, and amazingly performed finale propel the film, and its diverse and fantasticly affecting soundtrack firmly in the timeless movie/soundtrack stratosphere of forever-classics.

    🤘😇👉At least for me, anyway! 👈😇👌

  28. Sadie Johnson

    Love this song!! Bring the 90s back!!!

  29. Andres Saldivar

    The riff from the begininng (before the drum fills) sound like Slave New World of Sepultura, nice! I hope someday they'll come to México.

  30. The Brenn

    fucking genious

  31. LebronTraveled24

    Why did this show up in my suggested videos???

  32. Shawn Keys

    One of the greatest rock vocals ever and an amazing song to boot. Still kicks arse even to day

  33. Cal Erba

    I'll never forget the first time i saw this band....1998 they were introduced by Sevendust. The whole crowd went and bought their record after their set. The power and emotion that Skin put out was insane. She was barefoot and bareheaded, something we hadn't ever seen and her voice something we had never heard. It's a memory burned into my mind that will never fade....Thank you Skunk Anansie.

    xyaeiounn

    They played in Sydney Australia at one of those many-bands festival days in 97. I was there just to see Tool, really, but i knew Skunk Anansie were great. Wasn't prepared for them to rip their hearts out and fire them at us the way they did though. Whenever Skin spoke you could hear the indomitable smile in her voice and she made sure the last sound they made on stage was her voice saying "Tool!".

  34. Zach McMillan

    If Skin was a vampire from The Masquerade she would be a Bruhah,what a natural agitator!!! Snatch your brain back;zombie,snatch it back and hold it!!!😂😂😂

    Check out a band called Death. While the Motown sound was being perfected these guys were The Bad Brains of Detroit in the 60s and early 70s.

    Robert Jonson was thee first musician to record an albums worth of songs in a hotel room with just a guitar. Some say he was the first to join the 27 club (if you follow music i'm sure you'll get the ref).

    Ilija Spasojevic

    @Slimkidd730 As the song says: "whiteman have the money blackman have the blues"..
