Story behind the song
God War is Raw Dog spelled backwards, that is why we named the CD these songs are on "God War". Man's will verses God's will. In this song, the message shows a parallel of likeness of the Pharisees and the modern day pastors. Of course this is not a popular subject to those who worship their pastors instead of Jesus. This type of message seems to bring rejection with the religious crowd. There is an old saying " If the shoe fits wear it". If this is offensive it might be because you are a part of that crowd. Adapted from Matthew 23 to fit into modern day Christianity this song is dedicated to the pastors and teachers who are in opposition to the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. The lead guitar was done with a Marshal amp and the band played this one on a Taskam 4 track cassette player.
Lyrics
Phylacteries by Hahn, Roman & Schwartz Scripture readings adapted from Matthew 23 Surrender, Surrender, Surrender, your phylacteries Whoever exalts himself shall be humbled Whoever humbles himself shall be exalted Then Jesus spoke to the multitudes and to His disciples, saying: The pastors and the teachers have seated themselves in the chair of Moses. Therefore all that they tell you, do and observe, but do not do according to their deeds: for they say things and do not do them and they tie up heavy loads and lay them on men's shoulders but they themselves are unwilling to move them with so much as a finger. But they do all their deeds to be noticed by men for they memorize their scriptures and they memorize their sermons and they dress up for God in their Sunday best, thinking that by these things they will draw men to God. And they love the place of honor at banquets and the chief seats in the churches and respectful greetings in the market places and being called by men, Pastor, Teacher. Eat, drink and be merry for tomorrow we die Avoiding contrition it's the fool's battle cry There's coming a day good deeds wont help you score There's no hope for tomorrow if you don't find the door The crux of your energy is misguided at best You're lord of your destiny but you're failing the test Save the whales Plant a tree I'm not involved What's wrong with me? What's wrong with you? Here comes world peace I'm not impressed The ills of man, have been refreshed Rape the land, you rob the poor, election day, and you want more You've had enough! You separate, the church and state, on judgement day, you won't be late Don't be late Its five minutes past the hour? I want to go home! I'm tired of this preaching I wanna go home, home, home! But woe to you, pastors and teachers, hypocrites, because you shut off the Kingdom of Heaven from men, for you do not enter in yourselves, nor do you allow those who are entering to go in. Woe to you, pastors and teachers, hypocrites, for you clean the outside of the cup and the dish, but inside they are full of robbery and self-indulgence. Woe to you, pastors and teachers, hypocrites, for you are like white-washed tombs which on the outside appear beautiful but inside they are full of dead men's bones and all uncleanness. He calling us blind guides blind guides Surrender your weapons Throw them down on the ground The truth is the truth to this we are bound and abandon your sin Give allegiance to Jesus obey only Him There is no way out of this place You will gain nothing saving your face Be perfectly still or you wont hear His voice Heaven or Hell you make the choice Surrender, Surrender, Surrender, your phylacteries When Jesus speaks some understand They take it to heart they change their plans Just like a seed dies in the dirt Cracking the shell given new birth Think about your destiny short time until eternity Walk by the faith you receive from above rooting out evil - Burning with love Woe to you, pastors and teachers, hypocrites for you build the tombs of the prophets and adorn the monuments of the righteous, and say, If we had been living in the days of our fathers, we would not have been partners with them in shedding the blood of the prophets. Consequently, you bear witness against yourselves, that you are sons of those who murdered the prophets. Fill up then the measure to the guilt of your fathers. You serpents, you brood of vipers, how shall you escape the sentence of hell? Therefore, behold, I am sending you prophets and wise men and teachers, some of them you will kill and crucify, and some of them you will scourge in your churches, and persecute from city to city, that upon you may fall the guilt of all the righteous blood shed on earth. Do not be called teacher, for one is your Teacher and you are all brothers Do not call anyone on earth your father, for One is your Father He who is In Heaven Do not be called leaders, for One is your leader, that is, Christ. But the greatest among you shall be your servant Whoever exalts himself shall be humbled Whoever humbles himself shall be exalted 0 Jerusalem, Jerusalem, who kills the prophets and stones those who are sent to her! How often I wanted to gather your children together the way a hen gathers her chick under her wings and you were unwilling. Behold your house is being left to you desolate for I say to you, from now on you shall not see me until you say, Blessed is He who comes in the Name of the Lord. Surrender, Surrender, Surrender.
