Babylon Whores Exit Eden Lyrics

Last updated: 03/14/2003 11:56:54 PM

Apples and silver bear the trees of paradise / Visions of heaven to unfold before our eyes / Where cherry orchards bloom eternal summer´s night / Upon a sarcen stone we dreamed / Our sweet old lies

And into the dreams bewitched / We´d hear the haunting song / That beckoned us to taste / Of the dark of unripe dawn

If pride doth go before the fall / The summer never was / Promises gilded and hollow / No longer do bind us / All knowing and all wise

We´ll exit Eden / By the sunrise

As pestilence falls down as rain upon our heads / Still paved with gold become the roads that we now tread / Covered with sores and drunk with plain mortality / We have no thing so dear we couldn´t / Part with and leave

And if plague and hail they say / May purge a righteous man / Tears wept in anger / Shall be wiped away / By the Devil´s hand

If pride doth go before the fall / The summer never was / Promises gilded and hollow / No longer do bind us / All knowing and all wise

We´ll exit Eden / By the sunrise

(All sacred secrets and serpents / Grow old and tangled in shadows coiled / Under bridges over Alpheus stream / Carrying their dust on to the sea)
