"Eden"

I'm wide awake
There's a blue - eyed snake
Laying in my bed
Messing with my head
His words are a gun
Loaded with the rum
On his lips
Running through his veins

Sober words are candy coated lies.
Alcohol reveals the snake with the blue eyes
An no one hears me cry.
Why, why, why?

He found his Eve.
In him she believed.
The poison fruit she took;
Just one more name in his black book.
His heart is full of sin,
Feels so good, you want it again.
But it kills you. It steals you.

Oh, it thrills you.

All his words are candy coated lies.
He's nothing but a snake with blue eyes.
An no one is going to hear you cry.
Why, why, why?

There's a blue eyed snake
Laying next to me breathing
Deep in sleep, doesn't know
That I'm leaving.

He can have his Garden of Eden.
One of these day's he'll hurt just like me.
And when that day comes,
I'll just call it even.
