Blood Of Eden - Lyrics

I caught sight of my reflection
I caught it in the window
I saw the darkness in my heart
I saw the signs of my undoing
There have been there from the start

And the darkness still has work to do
The knotted chord's untie... iee
The heated and the holly oh they're sitting there on high
So secure with everything they're buying

In the Blood of Eden
Lie the woman and the man
With the man in the woman
And the woman in the man
In the Blood of Eden
Lie the woman and the man
We wanted the union
Ohhh the union of the woman
The woman and the man

My grip is surely slipping
I think I've lost my whole
Yes I think I've lost my whole

I cannot get insurance anymore
They don't take credit, only gold

I that a dagger or a crucifix I see?
You hold so tightly in your hand

And all the while
The distance grows between you and me
I do not understand

In the Blood of Eden
Lie the woman and the man
With the man in the woman
And the woman in the man
In the Blood of Eden
Lie the woman and the man
We wanted the union
Ohhh the union of the woman
The woman and the man

At my request
You take me in
In that tenderness
I am floating away
No certainty
Nothing to rely on
Holding still
For a moment
What a moment this is
A moment of forgetting
A moment of bliss

Ahhhh ah ah ahhh

I can hear the distant thunder
Of a million unheard souls
Of a million unheard souls

Watch each one reach
For creature comfort
For the filling of their wholes

In the Blood of Eden
Lie the woman and the man
I feel the man in the woman
And the woman in the man
In the Blood of Eden
Lie the woman and the man
I feel the man in the woman
and the woman in the man
In the Blood of Eden
We have done everything we can
In the Blood of Eden
So we end as we began
With the man in the woman
And the woman in the man
It was all for the union
Ohhh The union of
The woman
The woman and the man
