Moses came down from the hill
Holding the rules in his hand
Looked all around
Suddenly found
Noone was listening

Now it's time to throw down

So throw down
Throw down
We throw down
Throw down

Jesus turned water to wine
The star in the sky was a sign
They called him a liar
You're not the messiah
Get out of the temple

Now it's time to throw down

So throw down
Yeah throw down
We throw down
Throw down

And then came a man I can't name
Because if I do I'll be maimed
They'll chop off my head
And then I'll be dead
You know who I'm talking about

It's time to throw down

So throw down
Yeah throw down
We throw down aaah
Throw down

All religions of the world today
We got to leave 'em alone
We got to use our fucking brains today
Before we're gone
Before we're gooone

RIGHT NOW!

The three of them fall in the rain
The world was completely insane
Sound the alarms
Nuclear bombs
You crazy motherfucker now

It's time to throw down

So throw down
Yeah throw down
Throw down yeah
Throw down

    I'm a mature 60's hippy and my persieved meaning was that one should stand and take a stance in support of our "interpeted common doniminator or our superior being or god. " i love this band and i don't smoke 420 anymore. It is not necessary to enjoy my life.

    It's moses, jesus and "the other guy" fighting in a cage match. Each have there own superpowers. Jesus can turn water to wine, moses can split seas and "the other guy" rides a unicorn. And then the world falls apart.

    It's a song about judaism, christianity, and islam (talking about mohammad, "the one i can't name") and how we need to use common sense to avoid destroying each other over ideals.
