Adam lives in theory Trying to turn stone into bread Cut off from the sunshine, only smart in his own head Masquerading like he got it figured out Left to his devices, those worth the sacrifices Praying to the alter of himself Leaving his descendants to hope and doubt Making pilgrimages, thinking he's religious Like he's got all the light, and no one else He takes the unsuspected 'cause he knows they're not connected And he shows them how to be just as he is To the lust of all the people where he lives Eve was so naive, blinded by the pride and greed Virtually real, and commercially appealed Wanting to be intellectual And now she thinks that she's bisexual Drifting from the way she got turned down one day Caught up in emotion Burning up in her devotion She handed him her virtue To the king of exploitaion in the field 'cause he told her "I won't hurt you" So she lay with him to see how good it feels Now can you tell me, what, what we gonna do now Where we gonna go now, what we gonna say now Now can you tell me, what, what we gonna do now Where we gonna go now, what we gonna say now Now after the sensation, and the empty fornication She brought affection home into her bed, quickly multiplying Now the 3 of them are dieing by the poison she perceived to be good head Now Eve and her husband are perverted in their judgment 'cause everything appears to be the same They entertain suggestion, Next time just use protection Desiring to cover up their shame But much to their demise, poor decision closed their eyes To the very antidote to their dilemma Burning in their lust, Both of them were dealt to us Destroying the original agenda Praying to the sky, in order to maintain a lie They exhausted every possible conclusion, They can't even entertain the solution, In a brain filled with vain information and pollution He provided an excuse to explain away his desperate situation Hiding from the truth, When confronted, blamed his wife Giving birth to carnal life Refusing to acknowledge what he done Now if we can agree with who created us to be Who says we're guilty everyone before his eyes Making no exceptions, since the day of our conception Predisposed to hating truth, and loving lies Then can you tell me, what, what we gonna do now Then can you tell me, what, what we gonna do now Where we gonna go now, what we gonna say now Where we gonna go now, what we gonna say now Stop walking in pride, let the thief be crucified To this decaying social system Un-learn everything you know, and let him teach you Line upon line, every step upon pre-step, say goodbye, He wants to know, how far we're willing to go If we love him like we say we do, He will try us Just don't regress, Once he's satisfied his love, Or slip into hopelessness He won't deny us, And then he'll tell us, Where we gonna go now, what we gonna say now What, what we gonna do now And then he'll tell us, What, what we gonna do now Where we gonna go now, what we gonna say now
