I'll believe whatever you say
As long as I know I'm getting paid
I'll swear upon my mother's grave
I'll swear at heaven. Saints be praised
I'll put my hand to book and pray
As long as I know I'm getting paid

That's the way I want to be saved
As long as I know I'm getting paid
Whatever my word is worth in trade
As long as I know I'm getting paid

Money money
I'm empty fill me up with some money

I'll lay to rest, the bed is made
As long as I know I'm getting paid
In this life that matters more than death
I'll follow 'til my dying breath
Whatever crap you may decree
As long as I know you're paying me

That's the way I want to be saved
As long as I know I'm getting paid
Whatever my word is worth in trade
As long as I know I'm getting paid
As long as I know I'm getting paid

When the devil shivers off the dust
With welcome breath and acrid gust
I'll shake the hand the lord forbade
As long as I know I'm getting paid

Money money
I'm empty fill me up with some money

That's the way I want to be saved
As long as I know I'm getting paid
Whatever my word is worth in trade
As long as I know I'm getting paid

    General CommentPatrick said on Twitter: "As Long" is about greedy assholes from the perspective of one.

    Honestly, I look at this song like most artists just don't care about music anymore, money is the only thing that matters. I love Patrick's ability to point out society's negatives.
