Babylon Whores
Exit Eden

Songtext



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)
