From the recording 12 Stories: the Bible album
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 and 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 and Eve, Cain and Abel, Noah and 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,
who killed his brother in stone cold blood, although he could refrain.
Killed his brother in stone cold blood, although he could refrain.
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 sky and rival heaven's glory.
Scattered Babel all around, and we repeat the story.
Scattered Babel all around and we repeat the story.
1 - 2 - 3 - 4. The fall from grace opened the door.
5 - 6 - 7 - 8. The woman's seed will crush that snake.
