Abraham heard voices in his head, said, "Prove you fear me, slice your child dead!" And if he weren't completely insane, he might have checked with his friends about the state of his brain, but he took his boy, took the knife, and he took a walk instead.
Chorus: Abraham was gonna kill his son, Abraham was gonna kill his son, Abraham was gonna kill his son, Them voices in his head said see it done.
Now it seems to me that any good man Would realize that somethin' wrong's at hand. Seems a good time to get away when disembodied voices say, "Kill your family," sorry man, that's mad.
Took him to a mountain, built an altar, tied him to it, Raised the knife above his head, ya, he was gonna do it! Abraham! Abraham! He was gonna do it, Abraham...
Now them voices in his head said, "Hey, Abe, give the boy a chance! I was only testing you, so thank you for this dance now Abraham! Abraham! Thank you for the dance now, Abraham..."
Now it's a story we all know, I guess we never thought about it, though: Forefather of our family sounds a little dysfunctional to me! Give it up, it's ancient... LET IT GO!!!!

If the sin can be despised and not the sinner, can the belief be ridiculed and not the believer?
