about

Part III in the Paradise Lost trilogy. The first two are much more literal, taken largely from the text itself and massaged to fit my needs, while this one is more thematic in nature.

lyrics

In a time unlike today,
The fall of man still on its way,
There hanging in the tree,
A serpent staring down at Eve

Taste the Fruit, taste of me
Let the knowledge I provide
Set you free...

I will not fall again
If these broken wings ever mend
I will not fall again
In the end we begin again

The ascension will take place,
I will not fall again.
The ascension will take place,
and I will not fall again.

Corruptible, destructible,
Is this the great design?
You gave man the power to choose,
And he chose to be blind,
War, Disease,
You set us free?

How many lives were wasted here?
Looking back what have you done?
How many lives were wasted here?
Are you proud of what you’ve become?

Like sand in your eyes,
Or thorns under your nails,
The pain of life is real,
And its rewards are often stale

Is there a good life?

It's up to you, the deeds you do.
It's up to you, the life you choose.
