An Anthology of Darker Lyrics

Bloodied Eden

I wandered there among the trees
Whispering of evil deeds
No wish upon a trembling star
Could wash the crimson hue away
And purify the moon.

I sat there in the field of flowers
Dying in a sanguine rain
That poured day and night
Can no one see what has happened
What has become?

Walking in the Garden of Eden
Separate and still a mirror of the world
Mutated by sordid reverie and
Broken by the darkness of the mind.
The golden land of paradise
Exists no more within the hearts of men
Walking in a bloodied Eden.

Day by day the world denies
That they slowly head downhill
Night by night the world descends
How much longer can it continue?
And deep within the hearts of men
Sanity weeps.

I sat there in the field of flowers
Contemplating why
Unable to procure answers
As I was stained
I have been marked by passing years,
Darkness takes over me.

Walking in the Garden of Eden
Separate and still a mirror of the world
Mutated by sordid reverie and
Broken by the darkness of the mind.
The golden land of paradise
Exists no more within the hearts of men
Walking in a bloodied Eden.

Take a look around you
And deep within your heart
Bloodied eden.

Mirror images,
Bloodied eden.

Light and dark,
Bloodied eden.

Decadent yet beautiful,
Sorrow tinged with bliss,
Bloodied eden.

Perversion of ourselves,
Bloodied eden.

Paradise is stained,
Bloodied eden.

Walking in the Garden of Eden
Separate and still a mirror of the world
Mutated by sordid reverie and
Broken by the darkness of the mind.
The golden land of paradise
Exists no more within the hearts of men
Walking in a bloodied Eden.

Everyday, I'm walking in a bloodied Eden.
Stained . . . .
The sanguine rain.
I lose myself again.
