god money i'll do anything for you

god money just tell me what you want me to

god money nail me up against the wall

god money don't want everything he wants it all
no, you can't take it
no, you can't take it
no, you can't take that away from me

no, you can't take it
no, you can't take it
no, you can't take that away from me

head like a hole
black as your soul
i'd rather die
than give you control

head like a hole
black as your soul
i'd rather die
than give you control

bow down before the one you serve
you're going to get what you deserve

bow down before the one you serve
you're going to get what you deserve

god money's not looking for the cure

god money's not concerned about the sick among the pure

god money let's go dancing on the backs of the bruised

god money's not one to choose

no, you can't take it
no, you can't take it
no, you can't take that away from me

no, you can't take it
no, you can't take it
no, you can't take that away from me

head like a hole
black as your soul
i'd rather die
than give you control

head like a hole
black as your soul
i'd rather die
than give you control

bow down before the one you serve
you're going to get what you deserve

bow down before the one you serve
you're going to get what you deserve

bow down before the one you serve
you're going to get what you deserve

bow down before the one you serve
you're going to get what you deserve

head like a hole
black as your soul
i'd rather die
than give you control

head like a hole
black as your soul
i'd rather die
than give you control

head like a hole
black as your soul
i'd rather die
than give you control

head like a hole
black as your soul
i'd rather die
than give you control

bow down before the one you serve (aaaaahhhh....)
you're going to get what you deserve (aaaaahhhh....)

bow down before the one you serve (aaaaahhhh....)
you're going to get what you deserve (aaaaahhhh....)

bow down before the one you serve (aaaaahhhh....) (ow ow)
you're going to get what you deserve (aaaaahhhh....) (ow ow)

bow down before the one you serve (aaaaahhhh....) (ow ow)
you're going to get what you deserve (aaaaahhhh....) (ow ow)

he sewed his eyes shut because he is afraid to see

he tries to tell me what i put inside of me

he got the answers to ease my curiosity

he dreamed a god up and called it christianity

god is dead and no one cares
if there is a hell i'll see you there

he flexed his muscles to keep his flock of sheep in line

he made a virus that would kill off all the swine

his perfect kingdom of killing, suffering, and pain

demands devotion, atrocities done in his name

god is dead and no one cares
if there is a hell i'll see you there

your god is dead and no one cares
if there is a hell i'll see you there

god is dead and no one cares
if there is a hell i'll see you there

your god is dead god is dead and no one cares
and no one cares

drowning in his own hypocrisy

if there is a hell see you
i'll see you there you there

hey god, why are you doing this to me?

am i not living up to what i'm supposed to be?

why am i seething with this animosity?

hey god, i think you owe me a great big apology

terrible lie...terrible lie...terrible lie...terrible lie

hey god, i really don't know what you mean

seems like salvation comes only in my dreams

i feel my hatred grow all the more extreme

hey god, can this world really be as sad as it seems?

terrible lie...terrible lie...terrible lie...terrible lie

don't take it away from me; i need you to hold on to

don't take it away from me; i need you to hold on to

don't take it away from me; i need you to hold on to

don't take it away from me; i need someone to hold on to

don't tear it away from me; i need you to hold on to

don't tear it away from me; i need someone to hold on to

don't tear it away from me; i need you to hold on to

don't tear it...don't tear it...don't take it, don't take it, don't...

hey god, there's nothing left for me to hide

i lost my ignorance, security, and pride

i'm all alone in a world you must despise

hey god, i believed your promises, your promises and lies

terrible lie...terrible lie...terrible lie...terrible lie terrible lie

you make me throw it all away
my morals left to decay (terrible lie)

how many you betray
you've taken everything (terrible lie)

my head is filled with disease
my skin is begging you, please (terrible lie)

i'm on my hands and knees
i want so much to believe
i give you everything
my sweet everything

i give you everything
(i need someone to hold on to...i need someone to hold on to)

my sweet everything
(i need someone to hold on to...i need someone to hold on to)

i give you everything
(i need someone to hold on to...i need someone to hold on to)

my sweet everything
(i need someone to hold on to...i need someone to hold on)

i give you everything
(i need someone to hold on to...i need someone to hold on to)

my sweet everything
(i need someone, i need someone, i need someone to hold on to)

i give you everything
(i need someone to hold on to...i need someone to hold on to)

my sweet everything
(i need someone, i need someone, i need someone to hold on to)

i need someone to hold on to
