Genesis (in The Beginning) Lyrics

In the beginning there was nothingness and God but
waved his hand
and from the endless void there sprang the beauty of
the land
and high above the canyon walls the diamond stars were
new
and breezes blew from nothingness and herbs and grasses
grew
and silent creatures roamed the Earth and multiplied
their [Do7]kind
and man was but a molecule that God had left behind.
Chorus:
We have grown we have grown, we have captured the
throne
of the kingdom God made for our winning.
We have grown we have grown, but our children alone
have so little time left for beginning.
And mountains sprang and chaos rang the overture of
life
and rivers coursed the twisted blade of natures
sharpest knife
and cut beneath the rolling dales a gateway to the sea
while tidal waves and mighty gales were heard in
symphony
and sunshine fell upon the waves and warmed the virgin
land
and from the mud a drop of blood was left upon the
sand.
(Chorus)
And eagles flew from craggy peaks above the garden
wall.
The drop of blood became a man, the tree of life grew
tall.
And perfect in his loneliness, a rib pulled from his
chest
formed a sweet companion of pulchritude and breast.
And from the tree of knowledge God said they could not
eat.
And perfect was their paradise unto the serpent at
their feet.
(Chorus)
Tree of knowledge, tree of death, upon the ground they
trod.
The serpent said your eye's will see and ye will be a
god.
Defy the word and eat the fruit and ye will never die
and you will chart your destiny and rule the Earth and
sky.
And man was banished east of Eden. See what we have
lost.
For though the father sets the price, the children pay
the cost.
(Chorus)
