It wasn't enough when Eve and Adam
Got kicked out of Eden
It wasn't enough when Cain slew Abel
And moved away to Sweden
It wasn't enough when Herrod the Great
He murdered those little kids
And it wasn't enough when Judas turned on Jesus
And the whole world hit the skids

You think that we'd finally get it
That we'd stop doing bad
But just the fact that we never, ever get it
Ain't no cause to be glad
No lessons learned

It wasn't enough when we invented the knife
We had to go out and use it
It wasn't enough when we invented the gun
So seductive who can refuse it
It wasn't enough when we invented the bomb
So we could blow our shit apart
It wasn't enough that we could trash our world
Yeah, we've outsmarted the smart

It wasn't enough for you to kick me
But you kicked me when I was down
It wasn't enough for you steal my smile
And replace it with a frown
It wasn't enough for you to cheat on me
And act like you didn't do it
It wasn't enough for tell me your lies
And think I could not see through it
