P.O.D. -- "Execute the Sounds," Lyrics and Scripture Juxtaposition

from their CD, Payable on Death

"Execute the Sounds," partial lyrics:

You want to mess with me, try to take this crown
Babylon test me, we go smash them down
Original O.G., this is my playground
No take me seriously, you gonna feel it now
I man, know the harder they come
Because I man, am gonna get the job done
You know I man, know they don't want none
Me never have to cheat, 'cause me already won


David's observations as recorded in Psalm 33:

The king is not saved by his great army;
a warrior is not delivered by his great strength.
The war horse is a false hope for salvation,
and by its great might it cannot rescue.

Behold, the eye of the LORD is on those who fear Him,
on those who hope in His steadfast love,
that He may deliver their soul from death
and keep them alive in famine.


"You come against me with sword and spear and javelin, but I come against you in the name of the LORD Almighty, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied. This day the LORD will hand you over to me, and I'll strike you down and cut off your head. Today I will give the carcasses of the Philistine army to the birds of the air and the beasts of the earth, and the whole world will know that there is a God in Israel. All those gathered here will know that it is not by sword or spear that the LORD saves; for the battle is the LORD's, and he will give all of you into our hands."

--David's words to Goliath, just before he killed the giant with a simple sling and stone (1 Samuel 17)


"My kingdom is not of this world. If my kingdom were of this world, then my servants would be fighting so that I would not be handed over to the Jews; but as it is, my kingdom is not of this realm."

--Jesus speaking to Pilate (John 18)
