  1. Story 4: "Time"

From the album 12 Stories

Lyrics

Time. It's taking us forever
Why? Will we ever, ever
find that we are a nation?
Just tribes tired of living this way.

A new divine decree - instead of giving me your child for your sins,
Barbecue the animals and send a goat into the wild with your sins.
You and I both know following the rules is hard. It's so hard.
So love me with your heart and with your soul and you can always play the chosen card!

Time... taking us forever
Why? Will we ever, ever
find that we are a nation?
Just tribes tired of living this way.

Where's the milk and honey? This really isn't funny no more, oh my Lord.
Animals, diseases, hunger, sun... but wait, there's more! There's the sword!
Tell us what's the deal 'cause we really don't feel so free anymore.
I mean what's the point of being chosen if you can't even fight a war?

Time... it's taking us forever.
Why? Will we ever, ever
find that we are a nation?
Just tribes tired of living this way.

Time to take the land I'm givin'.
Try. Don't take the foreign women.
It's time, so say goodbye to Moses.
It's time, but remember you're mine.
