Bible Blues

God put a curse on Adam,
But the devil put a hex on God.
Cain killed his brother, in a bar-room brawl,
Went out into the Land of Nod,

Cain had a son, Cain had a city,
Cain had a wife who was pretty,
Cain had a mark that was branded on his skin.
It said that dust, it said that rain,
These were the fate of the race of Cain
It said the fires of hell will burn you for your sin.

There were some great men in those days,
So God he drowned them in his flood.
Babel and Sodom, Gomorrah and all the rest
Went down in a hail of blood

Cain had a son, Cain had a city,
Cain had a wife who was pretty,
Cain had a mark in his soul made of fire.
It said that blood, it said that flame,
These were the fate of the race of shame
It said I’ll damn you to hell for you trying to reach any higher.

God said to Moses, God said to Abram
The first-born is mine and mine alone.
God said to Abram I want you to cut up your son.
Hey man, I’ll crucify my own.

Cain had a son, Cain had a city,
Cain had a wife who was pretty,
Cain had a mark that was carved in his heart.
It said that pain, it said that tears,
These were the curse of a God of Fear
It said that God knew that one day we’re coming to take him apart.

Cain had a son, Cain had a city,
Cain had a wife who was pretty,
Cain had a mark that’s sytill branded in our skins.
It says that dust, it says that rain,
These are the fate of our race of Cain
It says the fires of hell will burn us
Oh, but the doors of heaven won’t turn us.
It says that one day we’re coming,
We’re gonna be gunning
The devil behind us
And we’re gonna find us
The bastard who gave us... the curse of sin.

It says that dust, it says that rain,
These are the fate of the race of Cain
It says the fi-i-ires of hell
Oh yeah, the fi-i-ires of hell
I say again
The fi-i-ires of he-e-e-e-e-ell
Will burn away
His
Sin.

Amen
