Last Days of the Garden of Eden
Lyrics
We shone like Babylon
We were rich and lush, alive
The sun gleamed in our eyes
And danced upon our lips
In our paradise
We always thought would last

Now here in Babylon
We're a million miles away
No sun to light the day
No dances in the rain
Once a paradise
We never dreamed was lost

Crimson petals pale
Roses look like they may fail
And our wine sours in the cask
Do we really need to ask?

(Are these the)
Last Days of the Garden of Eden (the)
Last look before our goodbye
The last rays of the sun gone forever
We search our souls and ask ourselves, why?

Lies we told ourselves
Unfold before our eyes
And darken sullen skies
And tempests filled with tears
Come to Paradise
That pales into the past

Crimson petals pale
Roses look like they may fail
And our wine sours in the cask
Do we really need to ask?

(Are these the)
Last Days of the Garden of Eden (the)
Last look before our goodbye
Last rays of the sun gone forever
We search our souls and ask ourselves, why?

We were watching swallow tails and vapour trails
Begging salvation from the sky
Never asking why the soil won't till itself
We didn't try

(Are these the)
Last Days of the Garden of Eden (the)
Last look before our goodbye
Last rays of the sun gone forever
We search our souls and ask ourselves, why?
