Are you too busy making a living that you’re forgetting about living?

and on that note, here’s a cool song . . .

LYRICS to Killing Joke’s “Money Is NOT Our God”:

Nine tenths of the law than sic
Is possession
Life expressed in matter is a blasphemy
Success defined by acquisition stinks!
So busy trying to make a living i forgot about living
Yes i do
So busy trying to make a living i forget about life

The best things i found in life were my birthright
Green fields mean more to me than a brand new car
Will you swap your hi-fi for a clear blue sky?
Will you cash in all your shares for God’s clean air?
Is your answer yes, or no, to these painful truths?
Is your answer yes, or no, to these painful truths?

Do you grovel to your master?
Do you beg like a dog?
First things first, repeat to yourself
AHHH MONEY!, Money is not our GOD!

Mine!
The best things in life are free
Mine!
I own the beach and the blazing sunset
Mine!
I own the waves and the fresh air
Mine!
I drink the milk of the stars in this beautiful moment
Say to yourself
ALL THESE THINGS ARE MINE!

Repeat after me!
Money’s not our God

Do you grovel to your master?
Do you beg like a dog?
First things first, repeat to yourself
AHHH MONEY!

Cheers,

Dimitri
