Get up in the morning, slaving for bread, sir
So that every mouth can be fed, ohhh ohh
The Israelites, ah - ah - ah

--"Israelites" (1968) by Desmond Dekker

"The result of my life is simply nothing, a mood, a single color. My result is like the painting of the artist who was to paint a picture of the Israelites crossing the Red Sea. To this end, he painted the whole wall red, explaining that the Israelites had already crossed over, and that the Egyptians were drowned."--Either/Or (1843) by Søren Kierkegaard
