  1. Evil World

From the recording Eden Slips Away

Lyrics

On the 13th of November
 
I was waiting by the door
 
In the shadows of the streetlights
 
As the beast began to roar
 
She was sleeping in the water
 
‘Neath the lilies and the moss
 
Like old man rivers daughter
 
Like Ophelia to the slaughter
 
Foolish girl, Foolish girl
 
It’s an angry evil world
 
Somethings wrong
 
Now you’re gone
 
So long, so long
 
Pardon me dear could you help me?
 
I am just a stranger here
 
Now just keep walking
 
No more talking
 
Don’t want to hurt you but I will
 
Then she vanished like a flower
 
As if she was never here
 
Broken hearts with no closure
 
Never knowing never still
 
All is peaceful in her bedroom
 
She is in her finest lace
 
 
 
See the sadness bleed like madness
 
Through the veil over her face
 
Knives are handy
 
Pills are candy
 
Pull the trigger
 
Light the flame
 
Leaving nothing but destruction
 
For the ones who will remain
