Garden Of Delight

And in this world, no symmetry, no light
We fight each urge, we beat the demons back
The passions surge, we stretch them on the rack
In this garden of delight

Men of the cloth, for them the patterns weave a design
I envy them but that collar fits too tight
The holy shroud blindfolds each sordid sight
In this garden of delight

All for the love of love
From the hosts above we can't see
But in their name, we carry on as though
The only game in town's the one we know
In this garden of delight

Well, in the dead of night
The death of light's complete
Don't mourn the loss, don't mourn the memory
You'll turn, you'll toss away your sanity
In this garden of delight
