Lyrics

(Now this here's a story about a chosen people who were a house and at the same time they were like a door to an even larger house. A mansion, if you will...)

Ya left a permanent boot print in our butt when you kicked us out of our land.
The prophet said somethin' 'bout a "shoot in Jesse", a lion lyin' down with a little lamb.
The good are bad and now the bad are holy. They're the warriors that you anoint.
But you left a permanent boot print in our butt. I think you made your point.

(Now how did this whole mess yet started? Oh yeah:)

Well the king of Persia took us off the hook with his decree in 538.
We got back home and saw our city ruined, lamented hard, and don't appreciate
Samaritan mutts just tryin' to kick our butts.
We'll turn our plowshares into swords,
and when this is through, your people swear to you we'll keep the laws that we ignored.
(Yes we will!)

Ya left a permanent boot print in our butt when you kicked us out of our land.
The prophet said somethin' 'bout a "shoot in Jesse", a lion lyin' down with a little lamb.
The good are bad and now the bad are holy - they're the warriors that you anoint.
But you left a permanent boot print in our butt. I think we got the point.

(What came next? Oh yeah:)

Now Nehemiah and Zechariah and Haggai all inspired our lives.
Ezra found a copy of the law of Moses and we divorced all our foreign wives
'cause we don't wanna lose our land again so this time we're gonna keep it clean.
It's time to rebuild the promise that we killed and keep the Law to the extreme!

You left a permanent boot print in our butt when you kicked us out of our land.
The prophet said somethin' 'bout a "shoot in Jesse", a lion lyin' down with a little lamb.
The good are bad and now the bad are holy - they're the warriors that you anoint.
But you left a permanent boot print in our butt. I think we got the point.
(Yes we did!)

(Now listen:)
One day God will be the king of the world and not confined just to Israel.
Instead of a whore, we'll be a brand new bride. It's prophesied, now listen well.
The book of Job and Ecclesiastes and the Song of Songs display
that suffering, vanity, and romance too, are all a part of the Yahweh way.
(Yes sir!)

You left a permanent boot print in our butt when you kicked us out of our land.
The prophet said somethin' 'bout a "shoot in Jesse", a lion lyin' down with a little lamb.
The good are bad and now the bad are holy They're the warriors that you anoint.
But you left a permanent boot print in our butt. I think we got the point.
Ya left a permanent boot print in our butt. I think we got the point.
You left a permanent boot print in our butt. I think we got the point!
