Called my wife “Eve,” the serpent he jumped in
Jumped in ‘cause he was never good for nothing
Nothing ‘cept his lies and his empty boasts
Closed our foolish eyes and he ended our hopes
All life long I’ll remember the day
When Eden was around now it’s taken away
Eve says just to deal with it I feel morose
When it costs the life of a sheep or goat

Calm down this ain’t recess
I wanna tell you the rest
And if I give you a test
Sons, you two both better do your best
Sacrifice something that matters
Like Abel did with his sheep
Cause you’re my reason to breathe
Don’t want my sons ending up like me
C’mon my sons listen up I plead

Cain, don’t let it go to waste
I love you, don’t just vegetate
Hate’s keeping you down
Abel, yeah, you’re going great
I love you, but I hesitate
Cain’s sneaking around

When I found out we need covered
I covered up with some leaves
I made a one-piece for Eve
Over the shoulders down to the knees
Didn’t get any closer to making both of us wise
It left me empty inside
From then on I’ve got something to hide
From then on I’ve got something to hide

Cain, don’t let this grow to rage
I love you, why’d you make that face
Snake’s seeking you out
Abel, yeah, I know your faith
I love you, but you ain’t that safe
Cain’s creeping me out

Called my wife I’ve been searchin’ since sunset
Something must be wrong have you seen our sons yet
Not yet but I spy someone gettin’ close
Closer, yes, it’s Cain at the end of the road
Oh, my son, what’s that thing on your face
And Abel’s not around where’d you take him today
He was in the field with you I fear you know
You look kind of like you’ve just seen a ghost
My son, son, what have you just done
Son, son, tell me what have you just done
Son, my son, Cain, I don’t wanna guess

Cain you better go away
I love you but I hate that snake
Can’t keep him around
Abel, what a total waste
I’d love to go and take your place
Laid deep in the ground

Done, done, on to the next son
Done, I’m done, now I’m warning you Seth
