New Model Army – Ten Commandments lyrics

Down comes Moses with the Ten Commandments
Hewn on a tablet, just the bitterest pill
Breaks up the party in the valley below
Says obey my orders and you're doing God's will
And disciples of Jesus, lost and forgotten
When the brand new faith isn't doing so well
Write the Book of Revelation to terrify the people
Join our religion or you're heading for hell
Ch: I will bow to the earth, bow to the sea,
Bow to the love between you and me,
Bow to the sun, bow to the land
But never to a god made in the image of man
Here comes Mohammed, back from the desert
Another male prophet with the word of the Lord
Shut off the women, lock them in darkness
Kill all opponents in a holy war
Here is murder, here is oppression
Here is the order that the Church demands
Burn three million women, call them witches and heretics
Then change the tune when the fashion demands

How they run to you now, how they grovel to you now
I think they're mad
How they subjugate their pride as if it's a sin to be alive
I think that's sad
Down with Moses and his Ten Commandments
Deader than deadest of the Dead Sea Scrolls
Back to the desert with Jesus and Mohammed
Kick out the prophets and save our souls
