Remember how it all began the apple and the fall of man
The price we pay so the people say
Down the path of shame it led us dare to bite the hand that fed us
Fairy tale the moral end, wheel of fortune never turns again

    Amazing song; it swirls and breathes, made even greater with Daniel Lanois' brilliant guitar additions.

    Really like this. Haven't heard much of Natalie Merchant before, but loving every moment of this.

    I had a long conversation with a friend of mine a couple days ago about this song. I think it can be summed up pretty well in 3 words.... Ignorance is bliss. "Follow deep in trance, lost in a catatonic dance. Know no future, damn the past- blind, warm, ecstatic, safe at last."

    Probably my favorite on Ophelia. Her voice, and the piano are stunning.

    Amazing. I think this is one of Natalie's greatest songs.
