Album: The Blessed Unrest (2013)
  • Let me paint a picture for you then I'll have to teach you to see it
    Illustrate the remnants of the life I used to live here in Eden
    Rolled a lucky pair of dice,
    Ended up paradise

    Landed on a snake's eyes, took a bite and ended up bleeding

    You know if I could change anything, I think I would start with the name
    The truth is all those angels started acting the same

    And I know there's no going back now 'cause
    Life in Eden
    Life in Eden changed

    No way to make the pain play fair

    It doesn't disappear just because you say it isn't there
    So when they ask why'd she go you can say 'cause
    Life in Eden

    Life in Eden changed

    Life in Eden changed

    Walking in the garden was a serpent-shaped heart and he told me

    What is broken cannot show, and less than beautiful is worse than unholy
    Idolized my innocence,
    Stole it from me in the end

    Now I'm wide awakened and still paying for the poison they sold me

    You know if I could change anything, I think I would start with the name
    The truth is all those angels started acting the same

    And I know there's no going back now 'cause

    Life in Eden
    Life in Eden changed

    No way to make the pain play fair

    It doesn't disappear just because you say it isn't there, so
    When they ask why'd she go you can say 'cause
    Life in Eden

    Life in Eden changed

    Life in Eden changed

    There was a time when I was taking all bets
 that
    This place was even better than as good as it gets and now
    Looking back from the outside in

    I think I was choking on the air in Eden
    Choking on the air in Eden

    Life in Eden changed


    You know if I could change anything, I think I would start with the name
    The truth is all those angels started acting the same

    And I know there's no going back now 'cause

    Life in Eden
    Life in Eden changed

    No way to make the pain play fair
    It doesn't disappear just because you say it isn't there, so
    When they ask why'd she go you can say 'cause
    Life in Eden
    Life in Eden changed

    When they ask why'd she go
    'Cause life in Eden
    Life in Eden changed
