That was long time ago, we've forgotten,
    save the archives hidden by the sea;
the Sin, the greatest blunder then -
    imperfection that man could be. 

And in the dark and through eons of time
    praying, pleading for our cause;
here and beyond even in distant clime,
    we sought to find the Garden lost.

Blindly, always searching, save the meek;
    wealth and power, gods of the bold;
we build cities, amass riches - all but freak,
    for Eden isn't made of pillars and gold.

Let's build a temple of worship of trees
    in a little corner down the glen;
rebuild the ruins laid by life at ease
    and bequeath them to our children. ~
