    This is a story
    A story about a hero and a damsel
    A villain and a scandal
    Bend down, untie your sandals
    Cause where we're going is holy ground
    Starts like this

    In the beginning there was the hero
    And the hero was the father
    And the hero was the spirit
    And the hero was the son
    And if this hurts your head already
    Welcome to the kingdom

    Immutable, inscrutable, infinitely
    Glad-hearted, triune perfection
    His ancient love reverberated off
    Each member with no hint of dissension
    Perfect in unity
    Perfect in diversity
    Holy trinity

    And even before the rocks could cry out his name
    He was singing his own praises
    How could he not?
    You know anyone else who goes by
    "The rock of ages"?
    He needed nothing from no one
    As if something made could improve
    Upon his majesty

    His majesty's amp was already at 11
    And if this was the end of our story
    That'd be enough for us to
    Glory for a thousand eternities at him
    But our story isn't over cause one day
    The hero started speaking

    And when he started speaking
    Things started being
    Light, night, wind, water, mud, moons
    Seas and spiders, swimmers
    And flyers, gallopers and gliders
    Stars and seasons, rhyme and reason to all
    Of it and all of it was good
    And suddenly all the commotion
    Came to a standstill, when our hero

    Bent down fashioned his damsel
    God leaned over our body of earth
    Breathed life into our lungs
    Made our heart beat from dirt
    He put light in our eyes
    He gave us each other
    And he gave us himself as a prize
    And we were naked and were not ashamed

    But of course, the plot thickens
    Enter stage right the villain
    The serpent was craftier
    Than any beast in the garden
    He made a beeline for the tree line
    And found eve and her husband
    And in less than fifty words
    He convinced perfectly satisfied people
    They were starving to death
    And since that day
    God's damsel has known nothing but

    Starving to death
    The poison of asps is heavy on her breath
    We traded the glory of the incorruptible God for a silly substitute
    Like a school kid duped into giving up
    His brand new jordan's
    For a pair of worn out tennis shoes
    We became dark-hearted
    Bent inward on a mission to find

    Within ourselves the solution
    Like trying to number the stars
    While gazing through l. a. 's air pollution
    We couldn't see
    And we fell in love with lesser things
    And we bought them each a diamond ring
    And we betrayed our maker
    Our husband, our king

    Let me clarify

    This doesn't just apply
    To the treacherous and murderous
    Even the best of us
    Are as bad as the worst of us
    Outwardly clean
    But inside full of dead men's bones
    Like the taj mahal
    It looks good and all
    But there's nobody home
    And one terrible day
    We looked around
    But there was no more villain
    To be found

    He crawled inside of us
    Like a virus, rewired us
    And now the damsel
    Is the villain as well
    We tied our own self
    To the train tracks
    The horn blows and careening
    Toward us is 10, 000 tons
    Of God's wrath sounds so loud
    You can barely hear
    The screaming chorus
    "Who will save us from the
    Body of this death? "
    Enter stage left, Jesus of nazareth

    The word became flesh
    And dwelt among us
    He came lowly
    Perfectly holy
    He came like a groom
    On his way to the altar
    To meet the bride
    And for the dowry
    He had no cash
    So he paid with his life

    Are you shocked
    By the consequence of sin?
    Be more shocked
    By the mercy of him

    Couldn't free ourselves
    So christ became our freedom
    Couldn't fill these lungs
    So he became our breathing
    We live because he died
    Once a harlot now a bride
    Sins were scarlet
    Now made white
    Perfect by proxy
    Saved by a surrogate
    Holy through him
    The hero and the damsel are one
    Once again
    But wait

    I haven't told you the best part yet
    As if there wasn't enough here already
    To impress you the best part
    About this story is the story is true
    The only fairytale that's not a fairytale
    So long mother goose
    Farewell dr. Seuss
    This here's the genuine article

    God made
    We strayed
    God's love, displayed
    God-man gives grace
    Stands in our place
    Our sins erased
    Debt paid always
    So fall on your face
    And give God all praise
