meme: song lyrics


I send a pestilence and plague
Into your house, into your bed
Into your streams, into your streets
Into your drink, into your bread
Upon your cattle, on your sheep
Upon your oxen in your field
Into your dreams, into your sleep
Until you break, until you yield
I send the swarm, I send the horde
Thus saith the Lord


Once I called you brother
Once I thought the chance
to make you laugh
Was all I ever wanted...


I send the locusts on a wind
Such as the world has never seen
On ev'ry leaf, on ev'ry stalk 
Until there’s nothing left of green
I send my scourge, I send my sword
Thus saith the Lord!


You who I called brother
Why must you call down another blow?


You who I called brother
How could you have come to hate me so?
Is this what you wanted?

I send the swarm, I send the horde…

Then let my heart be hardened 
And never mind how high the cost may grow
This will still be so:
I will never let your people go…

I will not…

[Moses, Rameses, and Chorus]
Let your (my) people go!
