We Didn't Start Messiah

This song is by ApologetiX and appears on the album Handheld Messiah (2013).

This song is a parody of "We Didn't Start the Fire" by Billy Joel.
Perfect humans, had it made, then they kind of went astray
Sought the serpent for their wisdom so they had to go
Though the Lord made a prediction
Soon the lady'd have some kids and
From her seed would come to be the Man who'd win my soul

So the Lord made some coverings that came from
Animals He skinned alive, animals that had to die
After that a bad scene, Cain has got a cruel scheme
Offering some old vegetables his sacrifice was nullified

We didn't start Messiah
Yet we're always yearning for the Lord's returning
We didn't start Messiah
No, the Israelites already prophesied Him

Though his brother's plan was flawed
Abel had a lamb for God
Sacrificed it and God liked it, Cain was ticked off
Abel's done, murder one, Adam and Eve had another son
Named him Seth now Cain has got a spot
Seth's line, Cain's seed, both left God as sin increased
They could not foresee the plan - salvation through just one man
But Noah knew a bit - wound up on a cruise ship
In the waves, they were saved, God knows what He's doin'

We didn't start Messiah
Yet we're always yearning for the Lord's returning
We didn't start Messiah
No, the Israelites already prophesied Him

Noah docked after that and he built an altar at
A spot where it was dry and he probably lit a fire
Seven pairs of animals that were clean were available
Brought them for sacrifice - tell me what that symbolized

But he'd hardly been there became drunk and lost his shirt
Canaanites were past hope, Shem was blessed by Noah, though
Who do Shemites be? Abraham and then his seed
Always check for types, bro, Melchizadek is one of those

We didn't start Messiah
Yet we're always yearning for the Lord's returning
We didn't start Messiah
No, the Israelites already prophesied Him

Spent three days with Isaac, Abraham surmised if
He killed him in faith then Yahweh still could raise him
The Lord He saw the faith he had -- didn't need to take the lad
Showed him a ram - Abe said He'd provide the lamb
Close call -- Isaac blessed Jacob, all his kids were next
Jacob claimed that someday - one from Judah had to reign

We didn't start Messiah
Yet we're always yearning for the Lord's returning
We didn't start Messiah
No, the Israelites already prophesied Him

Brother Joe, where's he been? In the depths and back again
Big shot - who'd have thought God would raise Joe's stock?
Made a break to palace life, there he sat at Pharaoh's right
Highest ruler in the land, brothers did not understand
Little Moses has arrived, government infanticide
From Egypt Moses left, plagues, Passover kept
Find a perfect lamb that's pure
Stripes of blood are on the door
Rock with water, Yom Kippur
I can tell ya many more

We didn't start Messiah
Yet we're always yearning for the Lord's returning
We didn't start Messiah
But when we are gone
He will still live on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on

We didn't start Messiah
Yet we're always yearning since the Lord's returning
We didn't start Messiah
No, He isn't hiding - if you try you'll find Him

We didn't start Messiah
Yet we're always yearning since the Lord's returning
We didn't start Messiah
No, He isn't hiding - if you try you'll find Him

We didn't start Messiah
Yet we're always yearning since the Lord's returning
We didn't start Messiah
No, He isn't hiding - if you try you'll find Him
