Testament – Code of Hammurabi

Code of Hammurabi

Life, death to live by the code
Ancient tales are the stories told
We must enforce Babylonian code of the law
Rise, fall, the lines been drawn
Civilization at the break of dawn
They take control of the chaos that they know

Eye for an eye for an eye
This is the code that I speak
Eye for an eye for an eye
The strong will not injure the weak

Fight, flight, start to unfold
Need to identify friend or foe
Your inner strength is the only way to survive
Black, white, the price of gold
Human lives being bought and sold
Destroying minds and the innocence of life

Eye for an eye for an eye
Live by the code that we keep
Eye for an eye for an eye
The shepherd will gather his sheep

Right, wrong show your proof
The consequence is a tooth for a tooth
Don't be a thief or you'll pay the price with your hand
Young, old you die by the code
What you reap is what you shall sow
Commit a crime and you'll feel the force of the law

Eye for an eye for an eye
This is the code that I speak
Eye for an eye for an eye
The strong will not injure the weak
Eye for an eye for an eye
Live by the code that we keep
Eye for an eye for an eye
The shepherd will gather his sheep
