Blood of Eden Songtext
von Peter Gabriel

Blood of Eden Songtext

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
They had been there from the start

And the darkness still has work to do
The knotted chord′s untying
The heated and the holy
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)
(Oh, the union of the woman)
(The woman and the man)


My grip is surely slipping
I think I've lost my hold
Yes, I think I've lost my hold
I cannot get insurance anymore
They don′t take credit, only gold

Is 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)
(Oh, 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
Oh, for a moment of forgetting
A moment of bliss
Hey-ey

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 holes

(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)
(Of the woman and 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)
(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 (We have done everything we can)
In the blood of Eden (In the blood of Eden)
So we end as we began (So we end as we began)
With the man in the woman (With the man in the woman)
And the woman in the man (And the woman in the man)
It was all for the union (It was all for the union)
Oh, the union of the woman (Oh, the union of the woman)
The woman and the man (The woman and the man)
