Apologetix — Meshach lyrics

Hey, there's three real famous guys in the Bible you know
And the in-between guy's name is Meeeee-shach!
Meshach, yeah, yeah

I read about them in Daniel one day
Look in chapter 1: 7 babe
And then you can go get their names
They got treated harsh by the king of the world (go get their names)
When they didn't bow down to his gold statue (go get their names)
They got in a crisis and just about perished from burnin' up
Hey, king, your joke's not funny

Well-a Meshach was an Israelite faced with
Mean King Neb'chadnezzar
Meshach, baby -- ah, Meshach, baby
Meshach, baby, Shadrach, Meshach, baby, Shadrach
Ah, babe, Abednego's last

Simon says, kneel and pray fools
You must do as the law says!
Well, sittin' way back in the middle of a field
There's a 90-foot statue; ya gotta pray to that
Glitter on the statue didn't make the guys pray
Even if they got scorched, they would trust in Yahweh

Well-a Meshach was an Israelite faced with
Mean King Neb'chadnezzar
Meshach, baby -- Meshach, baby
Meshach -- Neb'chadnezzar's mad
Meshach -- no scaredy cat

Huffin' and hissin' guess he wasn't bluffin'
Nebuchadnezzar shoved 'em in one of the hottest ovens
But hold on kiddies
'Cause everybody's movin' around and around and around and around
Nebby got confused and said, "I thought we threw them in with
Ropes tied 'em up -- now guys how'd they get out?
There's four bodies movin' -- there's another dude in there and
Come here, Meshach -- we want you to come back! "

Often a crisis looks as big as a whale and you're about to get nailed
But God isn't far, He sees you now buddy
So come on and pray -- you're cool, stop running

Well-a Meshach was an Israelite faced with
Mean King Neb'chadnezzar
Meshach, baby -- ah, Meshach, baby
Meshach, baby, Shadrach, Meshach, baby, Shadrach
Ah, babe, Abednego's last

Wait, wait, wait on the Lord, baby! Talk a little louder soldier
Wait, wait, wait on the Lord, baby! I can't hear you!
Wait, wait! On the Lord, baby! Wait, wait! On the Lord!
Wait, wait! On the Lord, baby! Batman!
Girls, what?!! Same tune... Trust me
Meshach, baby, Shadrach (Ah, baby, trustworthy chaps, yeah)
Meshach, baby, Shadrach (Ah, baby, trustworthy chaps)
(Hope you learned a lesson standin' in the oven with a-Meshach)
