I.The tribe surrounds him, listens to his words.
I hear the voices, voices of the birds --
The gods have sent their messengers to me --
They spread their wings and sat upon my knee.
The spirits up above
The send their love
And say that you must live
Your life to give.
The gods are angry at our wives
Whose thighs are cold and tongues are knives.
As husbands god is angry, too --
The do not love, give what is due.
You leaders, power's not for you to take --
Don't be a fake,
Live for our sake --
All this commands the spirit of the lake.
The fruits will rot before they're ripe
And worms will wriggle from your tripe.
If you do not obey
Beginning now, today.
The tribe beheld this holy man and trembled --
His words commanded all who had assembled.
II.The crowd walks past him, each ignores his words.
The voice of God is speaking to the herds
That He is coming soon to punish all
Who built around their hearts a concrete wall.
The angels up above
Say God is love
And therefore you should give
Your life to live.
Our God is angry at you wives
Whose thighs are not for men at dives.
At husbands God is furious --
They cheat and lie, are cruel and cuss.
You leavers seek in power evil deeds,
Like noxious weeds
You spread your seeds
Of wicked envy for your needs.
The institutions that you made
Will crush you all before you fade
If you do not confess
Your sins so God can bless.
The crowd ignored him -- all but one, whose call
Brought men to silence him behind a wall.
