I ripped the hands off my clocks, forever didnt seem different
I made no apologizes and surely wasnt forgiven
With no apologies made, I partook the forbidden
With no beginning or end with time in suspension
I daydreamed of better days, to my past, I paid no attention

With my love I walked barefoot through the garden of Eden
Long since abandoned, we found an apple unbitten
As she picked up the fruit we joined eyes for an instant
We knew love, we knew pain, we knew hate in all its Dimensions

We imagined what we'd know when even the word "when" was no longer a hinderance
I tried to travel to the future to get an answer to this
But "tomorrow" and "later" did not exist
With knowledge in her hand I asked, "answer me this..."
The air, the dirt, you, me, your scent...
if it'll always be here, Why appreciate it?

Unashamed we stood still, saw not a fruit but a gift
Our mouths full of wonder, we bit into it
Forever's a curse, what good is life if you know it cant end?
What good is the light, without romance when it dims?

We rejected forever
We wont live without sin

Lets not change a thing of our time here
No not a minute

    This was just beautifully writen! I sooo enjoyed this Darxwell!

    The word play, the metaphors is just bananas.. Makes me think further out the box, as far as metaphors..

    I feel I can never top this at the moment hehehe.. so many lines just stuck and had me thinking as well.

    But this one hit hard though
