Song Description

This song is very interesting, and must be experienced. Though the song is somewhat of a rap, the artist says this wasn't intentional, but a means to an end, "I had to get the information out in an expedient fashion." The artist encourages parents in an unpopular subject, corporal punishment, insisting "You shall beat him with the rod, and deliver his soul from Hell." This is an interesting promise from the bible, and worth a bit of study!

Story Behind the Song

The author is disgusted by the lack of discipline he sees in the world. So he writes a warning to all those who would be fools.

Lyrics

The Righteous and the Wicked

Where has the time gone
I'm back on my bed
My body aches
As meds flow to my head
I'm in a daze
The stillness of soft light
The highway howls
It's approaching midnight

The moon is high
As the busters fight
The hand of the gun
Who will do it right
In all their snatching
It's me who's catching
The tears that fall
As I ponder it all

The righteous and the wicked
What do you say
I see it on the news
Every single day
Somebody cursed killed somebody blessed
You can be sure they won't pass the test
Spare the rod and spoil the child
Don't let them strive alone
Don't let them run wild

The righteous and the wicked
Is all I see
Shut your mouth
When you're talking to me
You can be sure that I'm fed up
I'll need another moment
drinking blood from a cup

That's right I said it
This time it's for real
But why do you flee
Why do you kill
There's a price you'll pay
Be sure of that
Lie cheat and steal
Carry your gat
Cover your face
It's time to get paid
You won't get away
On the last day

The righteous and the wicked
What do you say
I see it on the news
Every single day
Somebody cursed killed somebody blessed
You can be sure they won't pass the test
Spare the rod and spoil the child
Don't let them strive alone
Don't let them run wild

You shall beat him with the rod
And deliver his soul from Hell
