Fallacy

God had man in his image built his crops to raise his fields to till
His pots to stir and his clothes to mend his sheets to sold and his altar tend
And God made the garden wall too high

He fell to Earth in smoke and flames and groaning lay on the stony plain
And mourning made him loud complain and swore he’d climb back to the garden again
Then out of the mist as the Tempest moaned
The ice-firths cracked and the oceans froze
Gaunt as a preacher and lean as a hoe naked and terrible an angel rose
He said my son we can turn this around we were both cast out and both cast down
But from ash will arise and reclaim our crown so follow my path and I’ll show you how

And Eve not a backward glance they gave
Not a by-your-leave nor a cheery wave
But left her bones where they broken lay
Nor raised her headstone high nor made her grave

It takes two – you and I
We brought the tablets from the mountain high
We cast down pearls to feed the swine
But the seeds of our faith won’t grow if they’re left to lie
In a fallow mind
But lean and our mercy will provide

Then man and his mentor spread the news and forth from their message a gospel grew
And they nurtured a priesthood to foster the view that God was a lie and the saints were too
There were bottomless scriptures reminding us how popular culture was mythology now
Spread by stand up comedians holier than thou and artists of calibre and highest renown
Then out of a miasma of science and thought man in his image a universe wrought
With logic and reason religiously taught and new ideologies that argued and fought

But Eve sat alone her wounds to tend
Snakes for comfort wolves for friends
Saying lead us not into temptation again
But the end of days will find us make amends

It takes two – you and I
We brought the tablets from the mountain high
We cast down pearls to feed the swine
But the seeds of our faith won’t grow if they’re left to lie
In a fallow mind
And we kissed all the girls and we made them cry

And Eve just smiles and says ‘Thy will be done
I can take my turn when his course is run’
And she patiently waits for her kingdom to come
On Earth as in Heaven and everywhere under the sun
