Eve said it was over
It was time to call it quits
We were on the tail end of a 3 day blitz
Broken bottles in the garden, a paradise lost
Her daddy came around and he changed all the locks
Now I'm crashing on couches, eating out of tins
Ain't nothin' original about my sins
The neighbours give me looks but I get no regards
No dinner invitations, no "Get Well" cards
Woah, oh, oh, oh

Like a tattooed snake on a tan line
Like a footprint on a land mine
Get the feeling that we went and made an awful mistake
I get a sickness in my belly that I just can't shake
A happy hour coffin, a payday nail
I'm like Jonah in the belly of a small town whale
Gotta get me out before it's too late to pray
Gonna ride Old Tom out of Twofold Bay
Woah, oh, oh, oh

Went looking for enlightenment in Vietnam
It's just the same snake oil but in a different can
And all the books and the smoke that they got up in Rome
It's just the same horse shit that we got back at home
So you can sing your Hillsong about your magical friend
It's just a sick, sick moneymaking game in the end
Everyone's prayin' down on their knees
To someone in the sky that they're trying to please
Not me
Woah, oh, oh, oh

I'm moving out of Eden
I'm moving out of eden
Woah, oh, oh, oh

Hey I'm movin' out
Woah, oh, oh, oh
There's no coming back
Yeaaahhhhehehe
Out out out
I'm moving out of Eden
Ohh I’m moving out of Eden
Ohh Moving out of Eden

    General CommentA retelling of the story of Adam and Eve, substituting the town of Eden (on the south coast of New South Wales) for the biblical Garden of Eden. Also includes what appear to be the songwriter's thoughts on organized religion in the third verse.

    General CommentFixed up the last second last line of the second verse. It's "gonna ride Old Tom out of Twofold Bay", not "Gotta ride on tall out of Twofold Bay".

    See cultmagazine.com.au/2013/08/stealing-paradise-the-snowdroppers/ for verification from the band.
