deep within the garden
where the night never ends
where we soon knew of eden
where the fire is relit- some where within the skin

we found our inner demon
and with him we did play cards
and he told to us the battles
you must fight when you are without a heart

in this garden of eden
of this we learned
when man bit the apple
he learn of what was hurt

some say the pain makes us human
was it the snake that gave us our souls
but as we ask the demon
we learn-only the snake really knows

if we lit a fire that burned away the lie
what is it that would be left to us
would we find our god
or an emptiness that struck peter blind
