INTRO: THE BIRTH [Instrumental]
“And man became a living being…”

MOVEMENT I: THE LIE
The fruit from the tree was so pleasing to my eye
The serpent said that I would not die

The serpent shall be cursed
He will crawl about and eat dust
I will put enmity between the woman and you
Man will crush your head, you will strike his heel

The wisdom of the world will be mine if I eat
What can it hurt if I take it and eat?

I will greatly increase the woman's pain
bearing children all of your days
You will desire man
He will rule over you

Take some, man - Gain wisdom, too
Eat from the tree: it's what you must do

The land will be cursed because of man
Producing thorns to make him bleed
By your sweat you will live until death
Dust you are and to dust you will return

[Genesis 3:1]

MOVEMENT II: THE TRUTH
If you're the son of God,
tell these stones to become bread!
“Man does not live on bread,
but by words from the mouth of God”

If you're the son of God,
throw yourself to the ground! God will save you!
“But it is written,
‘Do not put your God to the test.’”

All the world I give you,
if you bow and worship me!
“Leave me now and worship the Lord your God.
Serve Him only.”

When Satan left Him there,
the angels came to Him

[Matthew 4:1-11]

MOVEMENT III: THE TRUTH
Evil scheming, wicked violence,
and such is the end of all with ill-gotten gain
Hatred, rejection, mocking others
This takes the lives of those with ill-gotten gain

Do not walk on paths of the wicked
They are in the darkness and they don't understand
The path of righteous first dawns, gleaming,
shining brighter 'till the full light of day
Do not offer body to sin
Offer yourselves to God as those brought to life

Evil scheming, wicked violence,
and such is the end of all with ill-gotten gain
Hatred, rejection, mocking others
This takes the lives of those with ill-gotten gain

Do not walk on paths of the wicked
They are in the darkness and they don't understand
Therefore put on armor of God,
so when days of evil come, you can stand your ground

[Proverbs 1:19, 4:14-19; Romans 6:13; Ephesians 6:13-14]
