JAY-Z & Kanye West – No Church In The Wild lyrics
[Frank Ocean]

Human beings in a mob
What's a mob to a king?
What's a king to a god?
What's a god to a non-believer?
Who don't believe in anything?

We make it out alive
All right, all right
No church in the wild

[Jay-Z]

Tears on the mauseoleum floor
Blood stains the coliseum doors
Lies of the lips of a priest
Thanksgiving disguised as a feast
Rollin' in the Rolls-Royce Corniche
Only the doctors got this, I'm hidin' from police
Cocaine seats
All white like I got the whole thing bleached
Drug dealer chic
I'm wonderin' if a dove's prayers reach
It's pious Pius, the god loves Pius
Socrates asks, "Whose bias do y'all seek?"
Or for Plato, the screech
I'm out chere ballin', I know you hear my sneaks
Jesus was a carpenter, Yeezy, he lay beats
Hova flow the Holy Ghost, get the hell up out your seats
Preach

Human beings in a mob
What's a mob to a king?
What's a king to a god?
What's a god to a non-believer?
Who don't believe in anything?

We make it out alive
All right, all right
No church in the wild

Let me buy you
Desire
I stand by you
Walk through the fire
Your life
Is my Scripture
And I need it
Through your encryption
Yeah, yeah

[Kanye West]

Coke on her black skin made a stripe like a zebra
I call that jungle fever
You will not control the threesome
Just roll the weed up until I get me some
We formed a new religion
No sins as long as there's permission'
And deception is the only felony
So never fuck nobody wit'out tellin' me
Sunglasses and Advil
Last night was mad real
Sun comin' up, 5 A. M.
I wonder if they got cabs still
Thinkin' 'bout the girl in all-leopard
Who was rubbin' the wood like Kiki Shepard
Two tattooes, one read "No Apologies"
The other said "Love is cursed by monogamy"
That's somethin' that the pastor don't preach
That's somethin' that a teacher can't teach
When we die, the money we can't keep
But we prolly spend it all 'cause the pain ain't cheap
Preach

Human beings in a mob
What's a mob to a king?
What's a king to a god?
What's a god to a non-believer?
Who don't believe in anything?

We make it out alive
All right, all right
No church in the wild
No church in the wild
No church in the wild
No church in the wild

    The lyrics are very poetic and fascinating in that it weaves together conceptually some very large ideas. First, the subject is obviously some who feels, maybe falsely omnipotent. The circle of power starts with the people amd moves up a hierarchy of power to a god and then undermines the whole thing by introducing the nonbeliever. Very interesting because as you go up the hierarchy like who can undermine the apex and it is the non believer because to him there is no power at the top. Believe or not it is a cleaver idea.
    The whole concept is this is a person of great sophistication with significant contradictions in his life but with great knowledge to be living a life that might undermine his knowledge of the moral life but he chooses to do so anyway. This person is looking for reasons to justify and substantiate his lifestyle although he realizes it in a very intelligent reference to great and powerful ideas and thinkers.
    No church in the wild itself means there is no moral compass in the lifestyle chosen by the protagonist in this song. It's very clever use of the words and the music and tempo are killer.

    It seems to me that the idea of a personal god is an anthropological concept which I cannot take seriously. I also cannot imagine some will or goal outside the human sphere. … science has been charged with undermining morality, but the charge is unjust. A man's ethical behavior should be based effectually on sympathy, education, and social ties and needs; no religious basis is necessary. Man would indeed be in a poor way if he had to be restrained by fear of punishment and hope of reward after death. Albert einstein.

    Rather than listen to your religion and claim that everything it says is truth question it and all the universe will be reavaled you may not be happy but at least you not be ignorent. An idea is only as good as the people who act on it 5 million jews died why because of there belief religion is not a bad thing but just like every ouher idea with good intensions it is ruined by another man.

    Oh lord, forgive us for what we know is the real truth. Forgive the people who haven't got the strength to believe in themselves and their entourage. That is true belief, and if people didn't automatically believe in you but their own, then, you wouldn't be needed and they would rely on each other more. When is the time when human beings finally start thinking for themselves and each other instead, without relying on unproven sources. It's about time to get real, don't you think?

    People, people this is just art and I art you paint a picture out of your head that has been influenced by certain matrix, first what's sung in 96% of songs out there is blasphemy, lies, exaggeration's and what not an intelligent mind knows how separate real from fake. Pablo didn't stand in front of vineyards and paint what he was seeing on canvas he had artistic visions which he was able to clearly remember and remonstrate thru a brush, we've learnt to read and hear but we haven't learnt to intelligently choose between bullshit and real.

    It's a complete and clear demonstration of abuse of "power" they think they are protected by. Who on earth is kanye to claim having formed his own religion. What are the foundations of this alleged religion? - no doubt satanism. Those two are a very big embarrassment to us black people who are striving really hard to make it on the basis of true faith.
    Can't they see they are standing as top puppets making noise in the industry. Those like us who know understand the times are just watching them in their puppetism. Sorry for the younger generations who believe in everything they hear and see.

    This two don't seize to disgust me each time I hear one of their songs, they seem to think they have it under control(the reverse psysiocology)they apply on peoples minds through their pathetic music, well we too, like them, have the all seeing eye, trying to get everyone to worship the devil won't work. They say 'they have formed their own religion'the question is how long will it last when the true messiah comes back? Will they still sing praises of their one eyed pathetic god, dajjal? The devil is the liar boys he will only abonden your twisted souls in the hour of need.

    I am glad to see most people are still believers. I can't imagine for a second what it would be like to live the life they live however. So different than anything most people will ever see or experience. Those of us who go to work and just barely pay the bills. Not that we aren't happy- but their world is so different- parties, shows, events, admiration, fans, money, houses I wonder- once one gets on a level so far from the masses how easy is it to change? Some stay true I hope.

    Everything can be debated. However, I suggest that people who go to jay/kanye programs at least take a little time to really listen to what those 2 are saying in their music. Who am I to judge anyone according to my own belief? Just explain to the wold how those 2 are playing with something so big they can't even begin to embrace its emplitude. Putting plato's name or socrates' in a lyric doesn't make it moral or cool. It just takes those authors out of context of their writings. Westen civilization and all it stands for is under attact by those 2. If you are part of the western worl, you should know that monogamy is 1 of the biggest pillar we westerners cherish verry much. It's ok to steal now if there's permission? What next guys? Time will tell, n time will come for the reverse of the medal guys. Just make sure you are ready. Careful when playing with powers that "is" way over yr level.

    God was there from the beginning and will be there to the end. If at all they believe in the devil, why can't they believe in god who is the father of all goodness. It cost nothing to believe and act in god's ways other than to do bad and harm others. In fact you enjoy life when you do good to others. Kindly repent if you are a non-believer and follow jesus christ for it is only through him that one will get salvation. It would be better to believe in heaven and find it was not there other than not believe at all and find it is there. That is a simple thought of intelligent reasoning. Eish am shocked about that song.

    Let us ponder about ourselves and our bodies, and ask: who created us in this unique way? Who gave us two eyes with which to see? And the tongue with which we talk? And two hands with which we work? And two legs with which we walk? And two ears with which we hear? Who created the food we eat and the water we drink?
    Sheikh mufeed attended a court and told an atheist person, "you claimed that you have contested all the courtiers about the existence of (god) allah (swt) and that they were unable to convince you. Allah willing, i shall come tomorrow and give a convincing reply to your question! But you must report at the court promptly at the appointed time. I am wondering if you will absent yourself fearing to face my debate on the subject! "
    The non-believing man replied with lot of confidence, "there is no chance of my running away from the debate. In fact, i have the fear that you might try to escape since none of your compatriots has been able to convince me and you may meet the same fate! "
    The appointed time arrived the next day but there wasn't any sign of sheikh mufeed in the court. Since sheikh mufeed had ridiculed the person by saying that he might try to elude the debate by absconding from the court, the man looked around the court and smiled sarcastically. All the courtiers felt belittled that the sheikh mufeed had made tall claims but had absented himself from the proceedings.
    The sheikh mufeed purposely arrived at the court very late. When he arrived in front of the non-believing man, he asked, "where were you hiding yourself?! "
    The sheikh mufeed replied, "i would have reached the court on schedule, but as i reached the riverside, i saw a peculiar scene there. It was so astonishing that my feet wouldn't advance towards my destination! I saw a boat in the river that was floating on the water without any sailor. It was coming ashore on one side, picking up passengers and disembarking them on the other side. From that side it picked up passengers and dropped them on this side! When i saw the boat had no sailor i was very astonished! "
    The non-believing man had a hearty laugh and said, "how is it that the boat was making the up and down trips without any sailor? "
    The sheikh mufeed now said, "when you think that a small boat cannot fend for itself without someone to row it, then how do you imaging that such a big universe will function without the one who controls it! "
    Surely the picture could not have been created without an artist!
    Surely the machine could not work without an engineer!
    Surely the book could not be written without an author!
    Thus everything needs a maker or a creator; nothing can come into existence without there being an originator: the creator.

    I don't understand why jay and kanye are doing what they their doing because they were never in control, they are just puppets spreading the message of the elite. Maybe they gave their freedom for power and now they have to or maybe they think they can play the game better than them, which in my opinion they're delusional to think they can use their influence to their benefit and not the elite's. They are all just puppets concidering they joined the freemasons, an orginization created to keep certain people in charge and others as followers.

    These dudes are insane and does not know what they are doing. They sold there soul to the devil because of the richiest and to be famous and they know that they can't carry any of these things along if they die and they are going to rot and suffer in hell and leave all these things here so why are they not thinking striaght and stop blasphemy and they deceiving themselves thinkin they are deceiving the people. Repent now because now is the time not later by that time (d day) it might be too late.

    Satan has found place in their throats, hearts, and minds. People like to assume there is no god b/c it releases them from consequences of their actions. Friends, jesus died, he rose, and he is seated at the right hand of the father. You want a better life. The remedy is jesus christ. These men have sided with the devil, who is the father of all lies, it's only appropriate that they do what there dad does. But the end is a hell type of hot, less they repent. #Truth.

    The wild lays in the untamed heart and mind. Anthing goes at least that's the lie that is whispered in our ears. Too bad jay-z and kanye and others listen to those lies. We are all going to be held accountable one day for our deeds and whats on our hearts. There will be church in the end; they just refuse to believe it. Pray for their souls cause they have been consumed by the lies. Preach the truth!

    To me, there is no such thing as this "god" people talk about. We will never really know how we came about. It's as simple as that. So, is there no order in my life? No salvation? No church in the wild appeals to me. Maybe its the beat. Maybe its the name of the song. Maybe its the lyrics. All I know is. Ya'll overly religious people with all that "hellish song" and "god will save you" need to shut the hell up.

    This song is a song from satan himself he wants to use people like jay-z and kanye west to get through to us since he knows that if it's him coming to us on his own we won't allow it therefore he uses music to send the message knowing that we all love music so we can go to his side but hell no it ain't going to work cause I am a believing believer. Amen. Btw I'm 14 years old and know what they're trying to do to us if you're dumb enough to want to burn in hell that's you. But I know where I'm going. Thank you and have a nice day.

    Jesus blessed peter, called him a stone (pillar) after he (peter) caught wind of the revelation of who he (jesus) is, which is the christ, the living son of god. But in the next breath, he called him satan! (don't have enough space to go into why). But I say this to say, you want to see satan? Look know further than your nearest mirror. Just like if you want to see christ, look know further than your nearest mirror. Who do you see when you look at your reflection? It is clear who the artists of this song are. But who are you? Do you see the image of christ or satan?

    I think it means that there is power in a non- believer (belief in god and jesus), because it states human beings in a mob, then what's a mob to a king, etc. , listing a hierarchy making the non- believer the highest by saying that a god has no power as when there is no one to believe in that entity. Basically, it's saying in survival of the fittest, the non- believer is the fittest, hence "no church in the wild".

    I believe this song has done what he intended it to do open up a line of discussion. Christinity is about faith, faith in things not seen and about not letting anyone or anything shake that belief. If you beleive that this is intended to do that than as a christian it should make you stronger in your faith. I personally don't hear or feel theres anything satanic about it. I no worst than the songs about degrading women and selling drug and glorifying it as the way people of color should be depict as.

    Are you all Crazy? The metaphorical lyrics don't speak to ur mind. Wake up people! There will never be another "Jesus", so y bother? Y allow urself to be blinded by religion or the concept of religion for that matter? For what? Sainthood? To serve a God that never cared 4 you to begin with? That's the whole point. Stop looking at things as black and white there is A grey area! God (If the b*****d even still exists) lies in the grey. His whole agenda was to establish an source of energy to live off us. We never were supposed to make it this far. The problem with being human is that we have a mind and are fully capable of making up our own minds. Even God and all of the Angels of heaven and hell kno that " man's will " can't be determined without a doubt. We are a fickle people. Just like our so called God. Read ur bible. Its all there.

    Romans 12: 2 Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is-his good, pleasing and perfect will. "This mask used by K. West& other rappers is what the enemy is using to deceive the church into embracing this religion and get it in the lives of our youth and accepted by the leadership of the church. Hip-hop was founded in the streets as a voice for the people that felt they had no voice. But when Christ comes in the picture, he becomes the voice." It appears that since the death of his mother, his music has gotten much darker. Pictures posted here along with video clips shows only the empty shell of the former individual. It appears that his soul is gone and been replaced by a demonic entity. If you look at/into his eyes, most times he just appears "out of it". I'm not implying that he's now aware of what he's doing or not aware of the methods he's employing to get his "message" across. Maybe people just needed to be informed about gnosticism to know what's been used aganist us since we've been alive. This is nothing new people. The powers that be are just bolder now, and no need to hide their agenda any longer. Kayne is just another one to bite the dust just so he can hang onto his supposed "power" in the music industry. It's bold of him to brazenly wear a tee shirt with a Baphomet image on it. I guess that's no difference of Jay Z wearing a black tee with satanic scriptures/quotes from his dead guru A. Crowley or his wife sporting her newfound fashion statement of a ring with the head of Baphomet on it. It's scary to even think of what her next musical offering will be since she seems to have everyone from the youngest to adults well into their 40s trying to emulate her. Tetaun did a good job bringing out the symbols of gnosticism used in Kayne's video. I was wondering if he would inform people that the Phoenix was often depicted as a winged bird but, it's really a representation of satan himself. It's also obvious that Kayne has suscribed to the Luciferian ideology of light being dark and dark being light.
