lyrics

Bible says help your neighbor burdened,
Bible says don't muzzle the ox,
Got my muzzle but the wagon keeps on rolling,
And my neighbors burden has been left on burning rocks.

I told my brother stop this inquisition,
Told my friends to let their freedom go,
Told my eyes to start learning,
But I know there ain't much to know,

Well my eyes have been widened but I still can't see,
Commandments have been written but I just can't read,
Fire's been burning now it's burning me,
So I'm left with some strangers and some weed.

Well the Lord takes away and the Lord gives,
Lord had mercy on my soul,
Lord made women from Adam's rib,
Just so he wouldn't be alone,

And I've been led to the land of the lost,
By a shepherd who doesn't know my name,
I've been given a string and a rock,
Goliath stands in my way,

Well my eyes have been widened but I still can't see,
Commandments have been written but I just can't read,
Fire's been burning now it's burning me,
So I'm left with some strangers and some weed.

And now I'm a mile off from Zion,
And I'm a thousand miles away from the past,
We split the seas in search of freedom,
Hoping we'd find truth at last.

Well my eyes have been widened but I still can't see,
Commandments have been written but I just can't read,
Fire's been burning now it's burning me,
So I'm left with some strangers and some weed.
I'm left with some strangers and some weed,
I'm left with some strangers and some weed.
