​When the Bible Was Wrote

This song is by Cass McCombs and appears on the album A (2003).

Cast out of Eden/tricked by a snake
Brother killing brother/the mighty flood's wake
Glad I was not among
Those kept off that boat
Boy, they was much badder times
When the Bible was wrote
Then come slavery/then come curse
Then come death-cloud/for the first birth
Glad I was not living
I don't mean to gloat
But Boy! they was much badder times
When the Bible was wrote
Deceived with a kiss/Peter denies
The crowd calls to Pilate/thorns cover hist eyes
Jesus is crucified
And I do quote
Boy they was much badder times
When the bible was wrote
