There was a band in the mid-90's called the Toadies and they released a song called "I Come From the Water." All the lyrics relate to the exodus after Moses parts the red sea.

I come from the water
I crawled upon the shore
I left my brothers there
I got what I came for

The Pharoah was Moses' brother, he came up from the ocean and he got all the treasure.

I sucked that hot air in
And rolled upon the sand
Emerged beneath the sun
To be a man.

Moses reached the desert and basked under the hot sun and the Jews began as a new people.

I come from the water
I come from the water
That weren't no easy thing
It's more than nature
It's like my destiny

The parting of the red sea wasn't easy but God made it Moses' destiny.

I stood upon these legs
And held my head up high
Emerged beneath the sun
To start a new life

Just like the second verse.

Life in the desert
Just to be together
The sand forever
The same forever
It moves beneath me
It pulls my body
My pulse beats hotter
So far from the water

The 40 days and 40 nights. It gets hotter and hotter away from the sea.

I love to see the sun
In spite of all it's done
I pray for shade and rain
I pray to live again
I come from the water

Moses prays that they overcome the exodus and move on as a people.

"At that moment an unending stream of traffic crossed over the bridge."

I remember The Toadies, I thought they where quite ok.
