  1. Story 3: "Let Them Go"

From the album 12 Stories

Lyrics

Many years passed after Joseph died.
A new pharaoh needed some bricks.
Scared how the Israelites multiplied,
a pyramid scheme did the trick.

How long can the people cry out?
How long must my people be slaves?
Moses, there's no time to doubt.
A burning bush sent you to say:

Let them go
Let them go
Let them go
Let them go

Ten plagues and Pharaoh had had enough.
He drove them out into the sand.
Ten rules to follow at Mt. Sinai,
but the golden calf was not a part of that plan!

I mean, how long can the people be blind?
There's only I AM THAT I AM.
I'll smite them and start one more time!
But Moses remembered the plan,

so I let them go
I let them go
I let them go
I let them go.

My Moses remembered the plan.
My Moses remembered the plan.
So I let them go.
