Age Of Greed
Killing Joke Lyrics

Ten percent of the rest
Is the hand that pulls the strings
Be the privileged few (to have to own to hold)
Power over the people yes yes
Power over people
Be the privileged few to have to own to hold

Money property assets before lives
Green gestures of a dying planet
An endless debate only too late
An appetite for gluttony

The only way is up the only way is up
But when you are up you have to try and stay there
So you stamp and cheat on people
Champagne breakfast (rewards for the killing)
And a fat waist bulging
Indulging, with what you call good living

But most of all there is too much fat on your heart - pig
A lifestyle of cholesterol
Cross collateralized cholesterol
Saving what's left from profit margin
For what?
I'll tell you what for
For some conscience easing charity, why?
Just to justify!
Just to justify!

Look at this utopia
Society based on solid foundations
Educate our children, educate them well
To feather the nest and fuck the rest
(Yes yes feather the nest and fuck the rest)
The waste expands
(Your waist expands)
While others stand at the back of the queue
I mean you

Still the same old security
For your creature comforts
Exchanging the hours of your life
For the cash you've already spent
Eating rubbish so you can pay the rent
Table wine once a week if you're lucky
In comparison

Privatize the people's lives
Be part of the company (or fade!)
Appliance of science to privatize their lives

Water is our business
Electricity is our business
Gas is our business
Lives are our business
Business is our business

Your money, my time
Your stinking industrial bathwater, my wine
Imbalance induces hate
How will you bridge the gap
Between the endless buffet
And the empty plate I have

I feel hate I feel hate
I feel hate I feel hate
(Don't be afraid to show your hate, hate!)

You just treat me like a commodity
You didn't know I couldn't even afford to feed my family
I just want to kill
I just want to take a gun
And put it to your head
And pull the trigger

jaz is awesome! and he's so fucking passionate. i love the lyrics on this song. they give me chills. the line ," feather the nest and fuck the rest" , says so much about a system that rewards selfishness and greed.



Fat Man Jackson

This is a lyrical masterpiece


one of the greatest songs of all time


Jaz was fucking livid when he wrote this gem. I  empathize totally. Raven may he forever fly with these bass lines.
