I swear to god i'm sorry
I can't look you in the face
Shame becomes my clothing
But never hides mistakes
Apology accepted
But still it seems much to weak
The sight of skin with no fig leaf

I bled heartwise
We all have eyes

We all fall down
We all fall down
We all fall down
We all fall

Adam and Eve is born again
What fruit will we be eating?
Shame becomes my clothing
But never hides mistakes
Apology accepted
But still is seems much to weak
The sight of skin with no fig leaf

I bled heart wise
We all have eyes

We all fall down
We all fall down
We all fall down
We all fall down

We all fall down
We all fall down
We all fall down
We all fall down
We all fall down
We all fall down
We all fall down
We all fall down
We all fall

    General CommentThis song explains the basic fall from grace experienced by Eve after eating the fruit from the forbidden tree in the Garden of Eden. Before the consumption of the forbidden fruit from God's Tree of Knowledge, Adam and Eve lived nude and without lust. It wasn't until after Eve ate the fruit out of boredom and curiousity (some argue it was an apple, others argue it was a pear) that they first experienced shame for being nude, and felt lust towards one another. On a lighter note, after Adam and Eve failed in finding leaves from a fig tree, they later realized that they could grow their own bushes. Good times.
