[Intro]

N.CEverybody knows that the bible is full of wisdom
N.CThe good book is great
N.CBut a few thousand years of disputes and debates
N.Chave shown that the text was written in such a way
N.CThat it inherently requires intensive,
N.Crigorous and constant interpretation.
N.CDid you know that when the bible was given,
N.Cit was delivered along with
N.CAn oral tradition which at the time
N.Cwas expressly forbidden
N.Cto be written down
N.CNow the reason why I submit must be
N.Cis that this was to prevent undue rigidity.
N.CYou see, the bible is a living work
N.Cthat needs to breathe
N.Cin order to stay alive.
N.CNow i hope my approach won’t be seen as handfasted
N.Cand we all know that words get distorted and twisted
N.Cbut it is my contention that some of the best
N.Cbits were not written down.
[Verse 1]
GAlways have a little bit of salt with your tequila,
Cdon’t smoke your stash if you’re gonna be a dealer
D G DTry to drink at least 8 cups of water everyday.
GAlways keep your hockey stick on the ice,
Cif you wanna cut once you better measure twice,
D Gthere is no such thing as a lunch that’s really free.
[Bridge 1]
EmAn eye for an eye means fair compensation,
Amit doesn’t mean take up arms with another nation,
D G BAnything written down can be twisted apart.
EmDon’t be ashamed to talk about your mental health
AmTry to love your neighbour like you love yourself
D G BThat one’s in there but it always gets forgotten
[Chorus 1]
C GTruth doesn’t live in a book
D EmYou find it in the little surprises
C G DThe good book is only a lens to focus the view

D EmIs composed of the ugliest compromises
C GYou can’t only look at the lens,
Dyou’ve got to look trough
[Verse 2]
GThere is no such thing as a virgin conception
CEvery good rule has an notable exception

GDon’t count your eggs before their chicken
CAsk for consent before you put your dick in
D G BAin't nothing wrong with homosexuality
[Bridge 2]
EmDon’t get caught with your pants around your ankle
AmIf you want to hide your money stick it in a swissbank oh
D G BEvery banking system needs a lot of regulations
EmNever draw a picture of the prophet muhammed
AmUnless you’re a cartoonist and you really really
D G BWant to illustrate cultural insensitivity
[Chorus 2]
C GThruth doesn’t live in a book
