Hey people are ya’ gonna’ be lonely
On the edge of a knife
Many people are gonna’ be cut down
For want of paying the price
Hey people are you gonna’ be crying
When you count the cost
Many people are gonna’ be shown
What’s won or lost

Hey now welcome to the jungle
It’s all bought and sold
As hey now here in the asylum
It’s all weighed in gold
Ya gotta be slicker than the average
On flattery fed
That’s the way it’s always been since
The serpent said

In this life in this life in this life
Nothing comes nothing comes for free

Have you seen the color of money
It’s red white and blue
To the taste sweeter than honey
When you have paid your dues
All along the streets of plenty
With the oil and wine
Women and servants
And pride that shines

As always it’s a given
Always it’s true
Men’ll do anything for money
There’s nothing new
Master slave or servant
There’s none that’s free
The whole world’s mother’s milk is
Mammons greed

All of life is toil and trouble
And then you’re through
Running from or searching for
What is true
And then when you find it you say
It’s no good
It wasn’t what I was looking for
You don’t do what you should

If all of life is random and aimless
It’s what it became
As all the world really values
Is sex money and fame
So come quickly help me Jesus
You who paid the price
You wanna’ get satisfied
It’s gonna cost you your life
