Short Song Description:
Long Song Description:
This is the title track of "The Creation" CD and is intended as musical accompaniment for Michelangelo's, "The Creation of Adam" on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel.

This song sounds like Elton John and Eric Clapton playing the world into existence. The symbolic effects include the water of life, God chanting a lazy Om, the hapless Adam blowing a tune though his nose and a whirring rattle for the serpent.
Story Behind the Song:
The lyrics are by Moses, of course. Duh! Did you ever read the whole Book of Genesis? The creation, the seduction, the fall, the murder, violence and animal sacrifices, the beginning of mankind's journey and the promise of ultimate redemption! Drama!

One day, God spoke to me in the asylum and he said:

(a lazy humorous oooooooooooooooooommmmm....)

Which roughly translated means, "Let there be music!"

Instrumental begins with voice over:

In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.
And the earth was without form and void,
And the spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters,

Then God reached out his mighty hand,
And created the world,
With music...

Instrumental followed by closing words:

And on the seventh day God rested,
(Because he was tired,)
And he looked out upon all he had created,
And he said to himself,
(Because no-one else was there,)
"Damn, I'm good!"
