Leaving Eden

Put the thorn in my side,
the coins on my eyes
I’m not awake,
I’m leaving Eden
And all her frozen charms lie cold in my arms
Panic went away and left me reeling
It’s warm outside but the weather fails to hide
the stinging loss inside
For in the back of my mind
I always thought I’d find
my way to paradise
On I’d walk to paradise …

But grace and lies locked the door
from the other side
And now there’s not much else there
Grace and lies
In all how long can you hide,
how long?
The cost of innocence is the loss of innocence
Some may pass away,
but some die screaming
When it came to my time,
oh it took me by surprise
Was it my mistake,
or am I born for giving in?
