LYRICS

Gorillaz ft Benjamin clementine “Hallelujah Money” Lyrics

Here is our tree
That primitively grows
And when you go to bed
Scarecrows from the far east
Come to eat
Its tender fruits
And I thought the best way to perfect our tree
Is by building walls
Walls like unicorns
In full glory
And galore
And even stronger
Than the walls of Jericho
But glad then my friend
Out in the field we shall reap a better day
What we have always dreamt of having
Are now for the starving
It is love, that is the root of all evil
But not our tree
And thank you my friend
For trusting me

Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah money
Past the chemtrails
Hallelujah money
Hallelujah money
Hallelujah money
Hallelujah money
Hmmm
Hallelujah money
Hallelujah
Hallelujah money
Oooh

How will we know?
When the morning comes
We are still human
How will we know?
How will we dream?
How will we love?
How will we know?

Don’t worry my friend
If this be the end, then so shall it be
Until we say so, nothing will move
Ah, don’t worry
It’s not against our morals
It’s legal tender
Touch, my friend
While the whole world
And whole beasts of nations desire
Power

When the morning comes
We are still human
How will we know?
How will we dream?
How will we love?
How will we know?

Hallelujah money
Hallelujah money
Past the chemtrails
Hallelujah money
Hallelujah money
Hmmm
Hallelujah money
Hallelujah money
Hallelujah money
Oooh
Hallelujah money
Hallelujah money
Hallelujah
Hallelujah money

Virtual band Gorillaz have shared a provocative music video for their new track, “Hallelujah Money,” featuring London musician Benjamin Clementine. This is the first single from the band’s upcoming album, expected to be released later this year. Watch it above.

The group left a comment about the track on their Facebook page:

In these dark times, we all need someone to look up to. Me. That’s why I’m giving you this new Gorillaz song, a lightning bolt of truth in a black night. You’re welcome. Now piss on! The new album’s not gonna write itself.

Murdoc.

The video features Mr. Clementine delivering a spoken word type narration to the camera with lyrics regarding Donald Trump’s plan to build a wall as well as references to money and power. Images of the Ku Klux Klan, animation sequences, and a young Clint Eastwood play on a screen behind Benjamin.

The group’s last album was 2010’s The Fall. For more, check out the Gorillaz Zumic artist page.
