"The Almighty Dollar" as written by Ozzy Osbourne and Kevin Gregory Churko....
It's in the life that we lead
Set up for money and greed
As if it isn't enough
We have to use it all up
Success
Excess
The truth is inconvenient

All in your head, the reasons, let us forget
You kept your pride in this land

How could you think nothing's wrong
You won't be smiling for long
When it's all gone, gone, we can never go back

Gone into the end, at my spend
Watching the rain come down
Turn your head away, ignore the fear
Watching the ice crash down

How 'bout a justice exposure
How could you screw us all over
Rape, steal, and murder
Got us the almighty dollar
The almighty dollar

Poison the air that we breathe
Change your industrial need
Destroy the soul that you steal, the radiation is real
Beat fate, too late, you built and fueled the fire

You killed my faith, my whole earth desecrate
Deceived the whole human race
I know you think nothing's wrong
We won't be breathing for long
When it's all gone, gone
We can never go back

Gone into the end, at my spend
Watching the rain come down
Turn your head away, ignore the fear
Watching the ice crash down

How 'bout a justice exposure
How could you fuck us all over
Rape, steal, and murder
Got us the almighty dollar

Dead human disaster
The point of no return
No thing like ever after
Is it too late to learn

Gone into the end, at my spend
Watching the rain come down
Turn your head away, ignore the fear
Watching the ice crash down

How 'bout it's just an exposure
How could you fuck us all over
Rape, steal, and murder, got us the almighty dollar
The almighty dollar

    General CommentOMG Ozzy still rocks, and some killer riffs out of Zakk Wylde. This whole album seems to be about ozzy reflecting on how screwed up the world is and this is his take on money and what ppl will do for it.

    General CommentNot sure where the above lyrics came from, but here are the correct lyrics from thje official Ozzy site:

    It's in the lives that we lead
    Setup for money and greed
    A little isn't enough we have to use it all up
    Success - Excess, the truth is inconvenient

    Oh hang your head
    Pilaged and left us for dead
    You kept us blind and mislead

    How could you think nothing's wrong
    You won't be smiling for long
    When it's
    All gone
    Gone
    We can never go back

    Burn into the air and atmosphere
    Watching the rain come down
    Turn your head away ignore the fear
    Watching the ice crash down

    Our father's justice get's closer
    How could you screw us all over
    Rape, steal and murder
    God bless the almighty dollar
    The almighty dollar

    Poison the air that we breathe
    Chained to industrial need
    Destroy the souls that you steal - the radiation is real
    Debate - too late
    You've built our funeral pyre

    You kill my faith
    Mother earth, desecrate
    Deceive the whole human race

    I know you think nothing's wrong
    We won't be breating for long
    When it's
    All gone
    Gone
    We can never go back

    Burn into the air and atmosphere
    Watching the rain come down
    Turn your head away ignore the fear
    Watching the ice crash down

    Our father's justice get's closer
    How could you fuck us all over
    Rape, steal and murder
    God bless the almighty dollar

    Death, doom and disaster
    The point of no return
    No earthly life ever after
    Is it too late to learn?

    Burn into the air and atmosphere
    Watching the rain come

    Our father's justice get's closer
    How could you fuck us all over
    Rape, steal and murder
    God bless the almighty dollar
    The almighty dollar

    General Commentthis song describes the entire worlds problems. starting with the main thing: Money.
    it starts wars and conflicts, and polutes our earth. however we dont take anything else into value because (note of sarcasm in the song) "Rape, steal and murder God bless the almighty dollar".. what Ozzy is sayin is that we work so hard for the great dollar which is so good in this world yet causes destruction and dismay upon everything. but we dong care:
    "Death, doom and disaster
    The point of no return
    No earthly life ever after
    Is it too late to learn?",
    "Burn into the air and atmosphere
    Watching the rain come"

    then there is the two parts that show how we wont care until we see that there is nothing left but money, but what would we use it for if nothing is left?
    "You kill my faith
    Mother earth, desecrate
    Deceive the whole human race

    I know you think nothing's wrong
    We won't be breating for long
    When it's
    All gone
    Gone
    We can never go back"
