garden of eden lyrics – guns n’ roses

it’s a critical solution
and the east coast got the blues
it’s a m*ss of confusion
like the lies they sell to you

you got a gl*ss-jawed toothache
of a mental disease
and they be running round back
see them line up on their knees
’cause the kiss *ss sycophants
throwing penance at your feet

when they got nowhere to go
watch them come in off the streets
while they’re banging out front
inside they’re slamming to the crunch
go on and throw me to the lions
and the whole d*mn screaming bunch
’cause the p*ssed-off rip-offs ‘r’ everywhere you turn
tell me how a generation’s ever supposed to learn
this fire is burning and it’s out of control
it’s not a problem you can stop
it’s rock n’ roll

i read it on a wall
it went straight to my head
it said “dance to the tension of a world on edge”
we got racial violence
and who’ll cast the first stone
and s*x is used anyway it can be
sometimes when i look out
it’s hard to see the day
it’s a feeling you can have it
it’s not mine to take away

lost in the garden of eden
said we’re lost in the garden of eden
and there’s no one’s going to believe this
but we’re lost in the garden of eden
this fire is burning and it’s out of control
it’s not a problem you can stop
it’s rock n’ roll
suck on that

looking through this point of view
there’s no way i’m going to fit in
don’t you tell me what my eyes see
don’t you tell me who to believe in
i ain’t superst*tious
but i know when something’s wrong
i’ve been dragging my heels
with a b**ch called hope
let the undercurrent drag me along

lost in the garden of eden
said we’re lost in the garden of eden
and there’s no one’s going to believe this
but we’re lost in the garden of eden

most organized religions make
a mockery of humanity
our governments are dangerous
and out of control
the garden of eden is just another graveyard
said if they had someone to buy it
said i’m sure they’d sell my soul

this fire is burning and it’s out of control
it’s not a problem you can stop
it’s rock n’ roll
lost in the garden of eden
(and we ain’t talking about no poison apple or some missing rib you hear)
said we’re lost in the garden of eden
and there’s no one’s going to believe this
said we’re lost in the garden of eden
this fire is burning and it’s out of control
it’s not a problem you can stop
it’s rock n’ roll
