Jesus is Money (by Aaron Smith a.k.a "Jigga")

Jesus is Money
By Jigga

Darlin’- Jesus is Money!
Tell me honey
What pleases us more than Jesus?
Spendin’ time… with the lord.

I mean holy shit,
He died for our sins
And we owe Jesus thousands,
In dividends.

Jesus invested his life,
In his stock, and bonds
It’s true, the good Shepard,
Tends to his flock.

I mean Jesus is an asset
Through the peaks, and valleys,
We place faith in our savior,
The one who knows the
True value of our labor.

We are told riches
Come from working harder…faster…
But if Jesus is Money?
He’s our corporate master.

Wage slavery is simply,
Business as usual - for Jesus
Cause baby, our time is Money,
Honey, I tell you Jeeesus is Money!

Are these dollars makin’ cents
I’ll be god damned if
Jesus doesn’t pay my rent!

I say what’s it all worth
Cashin’ in our values.
Who’s gonna turn the tables,
On our money lenders…Jesus?
Please - honey
We don’t live in Nazareth
We live in debt!

You say what’s the cost,
How bout, Jesus hanging on a gilded cross?
Baby, tell me the price,
Of priceless.
How much more Money shall we invest
In the lifeless.
Darlin’ our spiritual economies
Are in crisis.

There’s a great depression arisin ’,
And don’t look for Jesus
On no horizon…
Money can’t save us now.

Cause the TRUTH is
All the gold on your steeple
Is really the root of all evil,

Don’t turn the other cheek
Cause world’s gonna be,
Inherited by the meek

Don’t let ur hands
Remain idle,
Cause we don’t need no more,
Pacifists…
We need to resist,
And pass-a-fist.

So rip down ur golden crosses
And through all your Money out.

Cause Jesus never bought-in,
He was only sold-out!
