Almost Eden

 

Words & Music: Bobby Shiflett

Almost lost the Savior,
Almost got in a fight
Almost asked for a favor
Almost lost the night

It’s the trees were shaken
Their fruits laid on the ground
It’s time to stop being taken
It’s time to stop messing around

We’re almost to Eden
We’re near paradise
They sent us away, once
They won’t do it twice

We are children in trouble
We got caught outside
By a power hungry system
And men who wear black ties

Electronic surveillance
Electric fence all around
Soldiers with machine guns
Spill our blood on the ground

We’re almost to Eden
We’re near paradise
They sent us away, once
They won’t do it twice

Confusion carries the masses
Away from here 
And trapped them in cities
Bastards bred from fear

We’re almost to Eden
We’re near paradise
They sent us away, once
They won’t do it twice

We’re almost to Eden
We’re near paradise
They sent us away, once
They won’t do it twice
