"Between Angels And Insects" as written by Tobin Esperance, Jacoby Shaddix, Jerry Horton and David Buckner....
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 them what you heard,
It's about a revolution, in your heart and in your mind,
'Til you find a conclusion, lost out in obsession,
Diamond rings get you nothing but a life-long lesson,
And your pocketbooks stressing,
You're a slave to the system, working 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 thinking about yourself, start thinking aboutâ?¦

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 shit

Because 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,
Possession, though you're never gonna feel the void,
Take it away and learn your 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 possession, take my obsession,
I don't need that shit

Money, possession, obsession,
Present yourself, press your clothes, comb your hair,
And 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

    General CommentHAS ANYONE ELSE BESIDES ME NOTICED THAT PAPA ROACH TOOK A BUNCH OF THESE LINES FROM FIGHT CLUB? IN MY OPINION (AND I SERIOUSLY DONT SEE WHY ITS NOT YOURS) FIGHT CLUB IS THE BEST MOVIE EVER. IN THE SCENE WHERE TYLER AND UM, TYLER FIRST SIT IN THE BAR TOGETHER, THEYRE DISCUSSING WHAT HAPPENED TO ED NORTONS CONDO, AND BRAD PITT TALKS ABOUT ED NORTONS "LIFESTYLE OBSESSION", THEN AT THE END HE SAYS "THE THINGS YOU OWN, OWN YOU", HE SAYS "YOU END UP WORKING JOBS THAT YOU HATE FOR THE SHIT YOU DONT NEED"I CANT BELIEVE NO ONE ELSE POITED THAT OUT. YOU ALL NEED TO GO TO BLOCKBUSTER AND STEAL A COPY OF FIGHT CLUB, AND WATCH IT AT LEAST 5 TIMES A DAY LIKE I DO. SHIT IM WATCHING IT RIGHT NOW.

    General Commenti think it simply means that in todays sytems particularly political and economical is very absurd... world to today is very material... but in a strict sense we don't own anything.. cause we as humans sometime will come to pass... e mail me @ ivan_john@yahoo.com if you'd like to kill me... or if you dnt want my interpretations... :-)

    General CommentExcellent song!

    This song is sooo true. It outlines how pathetic society is and how all these people have turned us into materialistic freaks. The singer is trying to get across that you don't need to be materialistic to enjoy life. Soooo true!

    General CommentThis song is ACUALLY about...

    Ok, Papa Roach was recording in LA, where everybody revolves around money and possessions...

    And them, being only a local band, felt like new fish, and small. They wrote this song explaining that not everthing revolves around money and how there are things that can't be solved by a 20 dollar bill... they wrote this song half way through the recording of there album Infest...
