Ahab you’ve forgotten who you are
Take all the people up to the mountain so that God
Can show you he’s still there, in the midst of this
The four hundred fifty prophets of Baal should come with

Have them take a bull
And present it as an offering to their lord
See if he’ll send fire from the sky
But he can’t, maybe he’s asleep

What happened to Baal, not to mention your Asherahs?
Maybe he’s just sleeping
Or maybe he’s in the bathroom crying

So I rebuilt the altar that you tore down
Twelve stones with a bull on top of it
Then a dug a trench circling all around
Poured twelve jars of water soaking it through

Then fire fell down,
The people bowed down all around
But not Baal he wasn’t near
He couldn’t hear, or perhaps

He’s in a coma
The Lord indeed in God
