  • [Verse 1]
    There's a plague on the land
    We're all touched by the man with the plan
    He'll take the most for the least
    Sell you violence as peace
    Long term plan
    No perversions are forbidden
    In your mortgaged private prison
    Cheap booze and coke to dope you
    And a golden rope to choke you

    [Pre-Chorus 1]
    Sell yourself
    Sell yourself
    Tell me, how much are you worth?

    [Chorus]
    Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
    'Till the Kingdom falls
    Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
    'Till the Kingdom falls

    [Verse 2]
    Don't forget that the debt they laid on you
    Is a bet that they lost in the brothel casino
    They gambled with dreams
    Only yours
    Now you've got to work much longer
    Capital has colonized us
    It rules and it divides us
    Leaves a violence deep inside us

    [Pre-Chorus 2]
    Can't you see?
    Can't you see?
    Won't you get up off your knees?

    [Chorus]
    Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
    'Till the Kingdom falls
    Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
    'Till the Kingdom falls

    [Outro] (2x)
    I know that there is something wrong with me
    I know that there is something wrong with me
    I know that there is something wrong with me
    I know that there is something wrong with me
