Look at yourself, you can’t even get to sleep
Boy, you love your wealth, you bow down to your money
You got what you want, but it won’t get you far
Was it what you thought? You forgot who you are!
Your wife has left you and you don’t see your kid!
Now get on your knees you know who your god is!

Your god is money, so bow down to it!
You act so funny, just look at yourself!
You’ve lost your family, your friends all use you
You can’t buy happiness, so get down on your knees
Bow down!

Look at yourself, your ticket to hell was free
To everyone else, you look like you're living the dream
Addictions have left you in your own gutter!
You can't buy your way out of this hell on earth!
If you don't get a grip, you will soon be dead!
Now get on your knees, you know who your god is!

Your god is money, so bow down to it!
You act so funny, just look at yourself!
You’ve lost your family, your friends all use you
You can’t buy happiness, so get down on your knees
Bow down!

Bow down to your money
Bow down! Get down on your knees
Bow down! Bow down to your money
Bow down! Get down on your knees
Bow down to your money
Were your dreams what you always thought they’d be?
Get down on your knees! Bow down to your money!
Were your dreams what you always thought they’d be?
Now bow down! Bow down! Bow down!
Bow down! Bow down! Bow down! Bow down!
Bow down! Bow down! Bow down! Bow down!
Bow down! Bow down! Bow down! Bow down!
Bow down, now!
Hold on to your money, now


Your god is money, so bow down to it!
You act so funny, just look at yourself!
You’ve lost your family, your friends all use you
You can’t buy happiness, so get down on your knees
Bow down! Bow down to your money

    General CommentIn his book, he talks about how his god was money while he was in Korn, and how his wife left him and he became a single parent, and was addicted to speed and basically, his whole life was falling apart... and then how God delivered him from that.

    General Commentthis song i belive is about how people are so materialistic that the simple thought of haveing money is a intoxicating and feeling of importance when they are exactly what they are calling poor people. would you bow to money and if you are materialistic that is what you should do because your god is money

    General CommentThe lyrics indeed refer to the monetary obsession of Brian's former band mates from Korn. Somehow they have lost track of what the music was supposed to be about. They remain good friends, however, Brian seems to put a Christian spin on everything he does now.

    General Commentmoney sucks and its true that it became the god of too many people... but well, that aint no reason for searching for some transcendent might...

    anyway, this song kicks ass!!
