"In The Nightside Of Eden" as written by and Ville Hermanni Valo....
Divided we stand in the light of a frozen sun
Cursing the Gods we have become
We steal the fire from a sacred heart
And bleed the wine unholy
We fall in love with the serpent's song
And fear nothing

In the nightside of Eden
We're born again -
Dead

"Forever we are
Forever we've been
Forever will be crucified to a dream"

Deranged we're tearing away the petals of desire
Learning the mathematics of evil by heart
We deceive ourselves to start a war
Within the realm of senses
And descend to the circle number four
Where we are nothing

In the nightside of Eden
We're born again -
Dead

"Forever we are
Forever we've been
Forever will be crucified to a dream"

    General CommentI love HIM and most of their songs, but this song is such crap. The lyrics have all been heard before, phrased differently. The only great thing about this track is the opening melody, which saves the track from total mediocrity.

    General CommentIn The Nightside of Eden, Is A Great Song
    I Think Its About Becoming something your not
    as by this part of the song
    Forever we are
    Forever we've been
    Forever we'll be crucified to a dream
    The whole song is about being over greedy with ones self and it talks about the 4th circle which is mentioned in the book The Inferno, The 4Th Circle
    is for Hoarders and Wasters, meaning People who hord or Love Materal items (Such As Money) They Love it So much That They Forget What Is really Important. So I Think That The Whole Dark Light Album Is About recreating Ones Self.....

    General CommentI beg to differ, virtualfactor. This has to be one of the best songs in the Dark Light album. The Nightside of Eden is dark, melodic and heavy (atleast compared to the rest of the songs in the album) and the keyboard effects are a big plus. Im a big HIM fan and Im sure I have never heard a song as unique as this one (well, it is similar to Vampire Heart in some parts, but its still good and different)

    General Commentvirtualfactor.. You claim to be a HIM fan but for every song so fair youve had nothing but bad shit to say, So Sell all your HIM CDs and go buy some Fall Out Boy. =/
