  • There's no money, there's no possessions
    Only obsession, I don't need that shit
    Take my money, take my obsession

    I just want to be heard, loud and clear are my words
    Coming from within man, tell 'em what you heard
    It's about a revolution, in your heart and in your mind
    You can find a conclusion, lifestyle and obsession
    Diamond rings get you nothin' but a life-long lesson
    And your pocketbooks stressin'
    You're a slave to the system, workin' jobs that you hate
    For that shit you don't need
    It's too bad the world is based on greed
    Step back and see
    Stop thinkin' 'bout yourself, start thinking' about

    There's no money, there's no possession
    Only obsession, I don't need that shit
    Take my money, take my possession, take my obsession
    I don't need that

    'Cause everything is nothing
    And emptiness isn't everything
    This reality is really just a fucked up dream
    With the flesh and the blood that you call your soul
    Flip it inside out, it's a big black hole
    Take your money burn it up like an asteroid
    Possessions, they are never gonna fill the void
    Take it away and learn the best lesson
    The heart, the soul, the life, the passion

    There's no money, there's no possession
    Only obsession, I don't need that shit
    Take my money, take my possessions, take my obsession
    I don't need that shit

    Money, possession, obsession

    Present yourself, press your clothes
    Comb your hair, clock in
    You just can't win, just can't win
    And the things you own, own you
    No!

    Take my money, take my possession, take my obsession
    I don't need that shit
    Fuck your money, fuck your possession
    Fuck your obsession, I don't need that shit
    Money, possession, obsession
    I don't need that shit Writer/s: David Buckner, Jacoby Shaddix, Jerry Allan Horton, Tobin Esperance

  • Tomás from Buenos Aires, ArgentinaThey also say ' Cause everything is nothing', another quote from Fight Club.
  • Jordan from Pittsburgh, Paamazing song and more people need to realize that it directly states a major problem that needs to be fixed
  • Pete from Tibshelf, United Kingdomthis song is an attack on the consumerist culture that we live in, where people are driven by money and nothing else, a struggle which is essentially pointless.
