Dead Mens' Bones

Jesus addressed all the 'holy ones' one day
as they gathered 'round to hear Him speak
seeking to gather evidence with which they may
use to sublty charge Him in the coming weeks

Whited sepulchres, His words, how they stung
vipers, hypocrites, murderers of the prophets
how the bells in their heads must have rung
the guilt of twisting the words until the law fit

Continuing He brandished the sword skillfully
slicing through their holy facade and fronts
You do openly pray and boast willingly
their wicked ways He bluntly confronts

White and clean on the outside
but evil and full of dead men's bones on the inside
taking care to polish the frontside
caring not how you look on the backside

As the woman caught in the act, thrown at His feet
was brazenly accused, they were ready to stone
But Jesus sapped their vengeance when He walked up their street
openly forgiving her, writing in the ground, she was left alone

Who can forgive sins but God only they deemed
this man to them it seemed God He'd blasphemed
throwing them into a murderous rant and scam
when He proclaimed, before Abraham was, I Am

Ye blind guides, which strain at a gnat, and swallow a camel
inside filthy full of death and stench, outside has new enamel
living a lie, showing all and your heirs a bad example
the lowest of lows, caught within their own trammel

Are the same as they on that day?
what does the Bible have to say?
about those who are not as they seem
the prophecy against is so keen

Remove the beam from your own eye
before you play being the physician
clean your own life or in hell you'll fry
if you persist in being a professional Christian

Tis best to be clean inside and out
it's the only way to see real life spout
if real life you contend to own
clean up the inside, or be Dead Mens Bones
