Hold on to your resolve
And your leather book of lies you tell yourself to sleep at night
I hope you choke on the smoke and the smog
While you tell all the parishioners stand up and fight the good fight

It's a vicious cycle, it's a cheap suit wearing sisyphis it's just people, it's their way
Do you people got the guts to say—
I don't want your bloody money
You sell your souls and say it's us who need redemption, ain't it funny
You lick it up, that bloody money bloody money bloody

Sweat and simmer and seethe
You repeat the words, you play the part
Watch the bullet hit the heart
Sit and heel and take what you receive
Puppets in the darkest little comedy we've ever seen

It's funny and its tragic
It's disgusting, somehow beautiful so we cant look away and
It's spineless, you can never say

I don't want your bloody money
You sell your souls and say it's me who needs salvation in the land of milk and honey, just look at all that
Bloody money bloody money bloody

Snorting lines of teenage tears
Watch them lose their golden years watch the headlines feel no shame taking money, not the blame
Call me the one thats blind
But we both see the bodies left behind

Because of all the bloody money
You wash your hands but
You're still spoiled to the core All the souls what is it for?
The bloody money bloody money bloody
You don't remember all their names
You turn your face and take your pay
The bloody money bloody money bloody
