Story

It seems that the world's bottom line is always the Almighty Dollar. It is the ultimate goal in the world. As Christians, we set our sights on the high prize of Eternal Life through Jesus Christ.  Big Business is a song that reminds us to be careful not to get caught up into the worldly things. 

Lyrics

BIG BUSINESS

THEY WANT YOUR MONEY TO SAVE YOUR SOUL

MILLIONS OF DOLLARS TO REACH A GOAL

DO THEY CARE IF YOU'RE PART OF THE FOLD

OR DO THEY JUST WANT YOUR SILVER AND GOLD

 

THEY SIT IN FRONT OF THEIR ELECTRIC BOX

GIVING THEIR MONEY, BONDS AND THEIR STOCKS

DO THEY CARE HOW THEIR MONEY'S SPENT

OR DO THEY THINK IT'S ALL HEAVEN SENT

 

THERE'S GOING TO COME A DAY WHEN WE WILL REALIZE

WHAT THEY'VE BEEN TEACHING US IS REALLY ONLY LIES

ONE DAY WE'LL STAND BACK BETRAYED BY A KISS

THEY'RE GOING TO HAVE TO ADMIT IT'S ALL BEEN BIG BUSINESs

 

THEY SIT UPON THEIR VELVET THRONES

EAT THE MEAT THROW AWAY THE BONES

DECISIONS THEY MAKE SEEM UNREAL

HOW DO THEY KNOW HOW THE HOMELESS FEEL

         

MAKING THEIR WAY UP THE CORPORATE LADDER

WHO'S HEAD THEY CRUSH DOESN'T SEEM TO MATTER

BUT ONE DAY THEY'LL TAKE A STEP AND THEY'RE GONNA MISS

AND THEY'LL JUST SEE IT'S ALL JUST BIG BUSINESS

 

CHRIST NEVER SAID FORGIVENESS WAS BOUGHT

IT GOES AGAINST EVERY THING THAT HE TAUGHT

WHY GIVE MONEY TO A MILLIONAIRE

LET HIM USE HIS MONEY TO STAY ON THE AIR

 

MAKING THEIR WAY UP THE IVORY TOWER

DOING ANYTHING TO GRAB ALL THE POWER

THEY GET TO THE TOP AND THE EXPENSE IS ON US

BUT ONE DAY WE'LL SEE IT'S ALL JUST BIG BUSINESS
