You can change the way you live
You can make it ?
You can turn it up or down
You can change the things you're told

You can crucify the word on a cross of gold
You can crucify the word on a cross of gold
Oh oh oh

You can lie to every face
You can use a stranglehold
You can lose or win the chase
You can sell your very soul

You can crucify the word on a cross of gold
You can crucify the word on a cross of gold
Oh oh oh

You can steal the things you need
You can keep the people down
You can take the best there is
To the shelters underground

You can crucify the word on a cross of gold
You can crucify the word on a cross of gold
