From the recording The Good, the Bad and the Holy
Part 1 of 12: Creation & the Fall (beginning of time)
as told in Genesis 1 -11
1, 2, 3, 4, stories tell us what’s in store
5, 6, 7, 8, but first it’s time to recreate:
Let there be light. Bang! There’s day & night.
Let there be a sea and sky
for fish to swim and birds to fly.
Land be green with everything.
Twinkle little stars.
Sun and moon, split day and night,
and it’s all good so far.
Then came all the creepy crawly creatures
and the rest.
Then came all the animals, but man?
He was the best! Now rest…
1, 2, 3, 4 stories tell us what’s in store?
Adam & Eve, Cain & Abel,
Noah & the flood, and the Tower of Babel:
In our image, Adam and Eve.
The snake got them to disbelieve,
Take a bite and know good from bad
and forfeit everything that they had.
God took Abel’s sacrifice
and then rejected Cain’s
Killed his brother in stone cold blood
although he could refrain. (2x)
4, 3, 2, 1, evil spread to everyone
Except for Noah and the kin.
Time to let the rain begin!
Forty days and forty nights
the rain fell down ’til it was right.
Dried it up and let’s start again
but man conspired to ascend.
A tower built to touch the clouds
and rival heaven’s glory.
Scattered Babel all around
but we repeat the story (2x).
1, 2, 3, 4, the fall from grace opened the door.
5, 6, 7, 8, the woman’s seed will crush that snake.
