"Jesus Christ Was an Only Child" as written by and Isaac Brock....
Well Jesus Christ was an only child
He went down to the river
And he drank and smiled

And his dad was oh-so-mad
Should have insured that planet
Before it crashed

Working real hard to make internet cash
Work your fingers to the bone sitting on your ass

I know now what I knew then
But I didn't know then what I know now

Penny found out as her hair was styled
Well you should hide you kids
While the dogs run wild

Jesus Christ was an only child
He went down to the river
And he drank and smiled
And his dad was oh-so-mad
Should have killed that little fucker
Before he even had

Well Jesus Christ was an only child
He went down to the river
And he drank and smiled

And his dad was oh-so-mad
Should have insured that planet
Before it crashed

Working real hard to make internet cash
Work your fingers to the bone sitting on your ass

Penny found out as her hair was styled
Well you should hide you kids
While the dogs run wild

I know now what I knew then
But I didn't know then what I know now

Well I know now what I knew then, yeah
I know now what I knew then, yeah
I know now what I knew then
But I didn't know then what I know now

    General Commentthis song depicts the demise of religion in a purely technological society. What's the point of religion if people are too busy trying to get rich quick and shit like that. It's a really clever song if you get the lyrics.

    General CommentI haven't yet read all the comments, so if I'm repeating any ideas, my apologies.

    Has anyone noticed how he talks about dogs running wild, like in Wild Packs of Family Dogs? I think maybe Penny is Isaac's mom or something, because in Wild Packs, he talks about how his family, little by little, got sucked into the religion by the Wild Dogs (preachers, etc.). So I guess, maybe, this means she regrets it (you should hide your kids while the dogs run wild).

    General CommentJust to let you know, If he knew nothing about what was going to happen before it happened, and he knows now what he knew then, he knows nothing...

    General Comment"Penny found out as her hair was styled

    While the dogs run wild" simply put; watch your kids. Even your perfect only child (Jesus) could turn out sour.
