lyrics

We been in the desert for years
Time to get us out of it
I climbed Mount Sinai
Carved ideas in a tablet
These mortals are horrible with immoral cavorting
They must check these 10 Commandments from their LordKing

Commandment Uno: I am the Lord thy God
So similar to Commandment Two tho:
You now knew no other gods before me.
Leave Osiris behind. I’m ya highest authority
To act morally, thou shalt not make unto me any graven image
Forget all about your vintage pagan lineage
Make a pilgrimage to the Third Commandment:
Don’t take my name in vain, God damn it

Fourth Commandment:
Remember the Sabbath Day to keep it holy
Sleep in late Saturday and wake up slowly
Every other day, pay Me like you owe Me

Fifth Commandment drops the bomb
(((kaBOOM)))
Obey thy pops and mom

Sixth Commandment is a big deal, a'ight
Thou shalt not kill… any Israelite

Seventh Commandment: Don’t commit adultery
That only works for Zeus. You’ll hate what the result’ll be

Eighth Commandment: Thou shalt not steal
Starve if you need a hot meal.
Sorry! That’s the law. *God’s real.*

Ninth Commandment: Don’t bear false witness
unless it resolves the source of this hit-list

Tenth Commandment: Thou shalt covet not
thy neighbor’s wife if you’ve a life you love a lot
And when I say “neighbor,” I mean neighbor next door
You can take the lives of the wives of neighboring tribes
while they’re in labor with sabres and knives
Thou shalt also covet not thy neighbor’s house, ox, or donkey
Thou shalt covet not. I can’t say it more strongly

(((Ok God, that’s quite a double standard
You covet our attention. You been in a bubble pampered.)))

Eleventh Commandment is so underrated
Keep church and state completely separated

Commandment 12’s think for yourselves
Who else but you can keep track of this game of shells?
The road to hell is paved with magic spells

Matter fact, keep those last two under your hat
And climb back down the mountain with this smokescreen and thunderclap
