Lyrics
  • We don’t want to know – we don’t want to know
  • How will we ever learn what we don’t want to know?
 
  • Stick a shovel in the ground; take the time to sift the dirt
  • Trust the process, if it’s sound – dig on in and do the work
  • What is buried in the sand might could prove the story true
  • Don’t dismiss it out of hand while you cradle your world view
 
  • Able bodies burrow deep – go on and bring these things to light
  • Give faith a shorter leap from an excavation site
  • If we’re jumpy in the sun – unnerved when we can see
  • May as well just sleep right through the Year of Jubilee
 
  • Like a resurrected rose of Jericho
  • We could rise if we find water in the cracks of this plateau

Lyrics
  • King Saul was tall – now why do we think that is?
  • Why bother to point it out if it were none of our business?
  • The tribe of Benjamin was scheduled to be dispatched
  • But Israel, playing God, apparently grew too attached
 
  • How blinded? How blunt? How juvenile and confused?
  • We drop our defenses at battlefront – no wonder we stand accused
  • How prideful are we that we would replace the Lord?
  • Unhappy in our Theocracy, we fall on a Monarch’s sword!
 
  • The heroes of old, if legend can be believed,
  • of Sons of God and daughters of men uniquely conceived
  • The truth is rich, as thick as a hearty stew
  • As salty as angels bedeviled with pride, like “Ego” in Guardians II
 
  • How marvelous? How mad? The fallen who forced the pace
  • Like Jude, the brother of Jesus said, “Abandoned their proper place”
  • How tempting are we, that angels were overwhelmed?
  • Unhappy in their Theocracy, they fell to a lower realm
 
  • King Saul was tall!
  • Could be just a coincidence – might be none of our business

  • Lyrics
  • We want a god we can touch
  • We want him to see, but not notice much
  • We want him to speak, but not dress us down
  • We pray his protection – object to inspection
 
  • We like a world made for us
  • We’ll seek the peace ‘til it becomes a fuss
  • We like the garden – we love our freedom
  • A walk in the park – Keep God in the Ark
 
  • We want a god we can make
  • A mode of devotion we can fake
  • We launch religions as if clay pigeons
  • And then we shoot ‘em down over the heart of town
 
  • We like a contract we can kill
  • We love to hire and fire at will
  • More colorless blood we can spill
  • Cut ties and talks – keep God in a box
 
  • If you’re on the fence, you’re of no consequence
  • No one is fooled or awed by such a puny god
 
  • We’d have our mysteries explained
  • We’d love our power unrestrained
  • Almost as much as our god contained
  • Secure the locks – keep God in a box

Lyrics
  • One of us is shadows, one is sunshine
  • One’s had the bad tobacco in the bloodline
  • Corrupted from the gut up and the belt down
  • Lessoned – likely destined for a meltdown
 
  • I surprised my quiet neighbors with a roundup
  • Arranged an angel army from the ground up
  • We’re either gonna tear the gates of hell down
  • Or fade away to vapor in the meltdown
 
  • If I’m a marionette, who’s my puppeteer?
  • Weren’t my status and my stature in the stratosphere?
  • What kind of king would think he should’ve knelt down?
  • The kind who’s got a mind about to melt down
 
  • Once upon a time, a giant fell down
  • Laid upon his blade – it was a meltdown
  • Ooh… it was a meltdown

Lyrics
  • Sheep, sheep, don’t’cha know the road (Yes, Lord, I know the road)
 
  • Don’t‘cha know the road by the brothers and the sisters?
 
  • Don’t’cha know the road by the summons of the herdsman?
 
  • Don’t’cha know the road by the greenin’ of the meadow?
 
  • Don’t’cha know the road by the narrowin’ of the byway?
 
  • I know the road – I know the narrow road

Lyrics
  • Not everyone who cries “Lord, Lord”
  • Not everyone who cries will enter paradise
 
  • Can you pick figs from thistles? No, Lord
  • A thistle doesn’t tickle – and neither shall the thistle
 
  • Can wolves pretend they’re woolly? Yes, Lord
  • Beware the wolves in wool – they’re cruel and guileful
 
  • Do I know you? Do I know you?
  • Let Me make this plain; I won’t say it again
  • Depart from, you evildoer
  • I never knew you – I never knew you
