    Based on Exodus 12:
    21 Then Moses called for all the elders of Israel, and said unto them, Draw out and take you a lamb according to your families, and kill the passover.
    22 And ye shall take a bunch of hyssop, and dip it in the blood that is in the bason, and strike the lintel and the two side posts with the blood that is in the bason; and none of you shall go out at the door of his house until the morning.
    23 For the Lord will pass through to smite the Egyptians; and when he seeth the blood upon the lintel, and on the two side posts, the Lord will pass over the door, and will not suffer the destroyer to come in unto your houses to smite you.
    24 And ye shall observe this thing for an ordinance to thee and to thy sons for ever.
    25 And it shall come to pass, when ye be come to the land which the Lord will give you, according as he hath promised, that ye shall keep this service.
    26 And it shall come to pass, when your children shall say unto you, What mean ye by this service?
    27 That ye shall say, It is the sacrifice of the Lord's passover, who passed over the houses of the children of Israel in Egypt, when he smote the Egyptians, and delivered our houses. And the people bowed the head and worshipped.
    28 And the children of Israel went away, and did as the Lord had commanded Moses and Aaron, so did they.
    29 And it came to pass, that at midnight the Lord smote all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, from the firstborn of Pharaoh that sat on his throne unto the firstborn of the captive that was in the dungeon; and all the firstborn of cattle.
    30 And Pharaoh rose up in the night, he, and all his servants, and all the Egyptians; and there was a great cry in Egypt; for there was not a house where there was not one dead.

    LYRICS by David King, aka Duke of Uke:

    DEATH: Falling stars you wished upon
    are cinders now and now they're gone
    their residue festoons my fetid field.
    Unfeeling husks of lovers past
    the shells are all that ever last
    I've taken everything that they concealed.
    Whoever told you life was fair?
    Look around you, everywhere
    the cruelty of nature is displayed!
    Why the scorn?
    Why the surprise?
    Everything that's born must die
    and it isn't I who made the world that way.

    What wicked little twist of fate
    placed you here upon my plate
    Here, where no one hears your cries?
    Where was your god to steer you through
    Perhaps your god's forsaken you
    Otherwise why lead you here to die?

    BA (spirit of the dead): I, I know the way how
    I'll melt away now
    I know the way.
    I'm feeling bliss now
    Dissolved to mist how
    strangely I go
    away
    Now I finally know

    DEATH: It's merely moments now,
    moments now until
    your feeble flesh bends to my will
    and it will
    so rest your weary head.
    There'll be no pain,
    no pain at all
    as everything you are dissolves
    Your fate resolved
    upon my silky thread.

    BA: I, I know the way how
    I'll melt away now
    I know the way.
    I'm feeling bliss now
    Dissolved to mist how
    strangely I go
    away
    Now I finally know
    (repeat)
