God money, I'll do anything for you
God money, just tell me what you want me to
God money, nail me up against the wall
God money, don't want everything, he wants it all
No, you can't take it
No, you can't take it
No, you can't take that away from me
No, you can't take it
No, you can't take it
No, you can't take that away from me
Head like a hole
Black as your soul
I'd rather die than give you control
Head like a hole
Black as your soul
I'd rather die than give you control
Bow down before the one you serve
You're going to get what you deserve
Bow down before the one you serve
You're going to get what you deserve
God money's not looking for the cure
God money's not concerned with the sick amongst the pure
God money, let's go dancing on the backs of the bruised
God money's not one to choose.

    i think it means that money is the root of all evil and that God is a hypocrite and uses what ever means necessary to control people when he himself is evil. Not my opinion of God but my opinion of what Resner message in this song. The man clearly has a problem with the Lord Jesus himself and never expected much from orginized religion in the first place

    This song is about the selfish and extravagant lavishness that so many preachers, especially in the 1980s, were manipulating people with to get themselves rich. The message of Jesus has been twisted by many to chock people into giving their money in exchange for God's blessings. The preachers get rich while little or no benefit is placed upon the givers. Most of these preachers do little or nothing to help the people who are making them rich through their financial giving.

    "You're going to get what you deserve" means that these manipulative preachers will somehow get what they deserve, one way or another. How sad and tragic that so many people fall for such garbage. How terrible that something that is intended to enrich people's spiritual lives with goodness is used to fleece the flock for financial gain.
