False paradise

Eve sucks the life out of Adam
Creeps like a snake on a cold grey floor
Shylock longs for his pound of flesh
The wolves run wild

A million lives torn asunder
The devil’s breath blows at your door
The queen rubs salt in the king’s open wound
Blood on the tiles

And the fathers of greed
Have a thief for every child
Avarice the light
In your false paradise

Cain is the slayer of Abel
Lost in a moment of treacherous plight
Release the monster that dwells inside
The stakes are high

And the darkness thrives
When the claw reaches high
Create the divide
In your false paradise

Clutch at the ring of power
Scepter high and a heart in stone
Avarice flows thru your veins alive
The price of a lie
