Blood Of Eden Lyrics

Artist: Peter Gabriel
Album: Us

I caught sight of my reflection
I caught it in the window
I saw the darkness in my heart
I saw the signs of my undoing
They had been there from the start

And the darkness still has work to do
The knotted chord's untying
The heated and the holy
Oh they're sitting there on high
So secure with everything they're buying

In the blood of Eden lie the woman and the man
With the man in the woman and the woman in the man
In the blood of Eden lie the woman and the man
We wanted the the union oh the union of the woman, the woman and the man

My grip is surely slipping
I think I've lost my hold
Yes I think I've lost my hold
I cannot get insurance any more
They don't take credit, only gold
Is that a dagger or a crucifix I see
You hold so tightly in your hand
And all the while the distance grows between you and me
I do not understand

In the blood of Eden lie the woman and the man
With the man in the woman and the woman in the man
In the blood of Eden lie the woman and the man
We wanted the the union oh the union of the woman, the woman and the man

At my request you take me in
In that tenderness I am floating away
No certainty, nothing to rely on
Holding still for a moment
What a moment this is
Oh for a moment of forgetting
A moment of bliss
Oh....

I can hear the distant thunder
Of a million unheard souls
Of a million unheard souls
Watch each one reach for creature comfort
For the filling of their holes

In the blood of Eden lie the woman and the man
I feel the man in the woman and the woman in the man
In the blood of Eden lie the woman and the man
I feel the man in the woman and the woman in the man

In the blood of Eden we have done everything we can
In the blood of Eden, so we end as we began
With the man in the woman and the woman in the man
It was all for the union, oh the union of the woman, the woman and the man

Lyrics are accurate. More importantly though this song is there.

So much honesty and maturity as Peter Gabriel went from a young man into his middle age.... and I find more and more wisdom in his words as I make the same journey.

...it is since we (god) have been divided from Adam(spiritual human,sexless) into Adam-male and Adam-female that we feel lost in this material world...we have chosen this path to gain insight in the creation and to realize an overall consciousness such as our source, when man and wife inside of us (the opposites) unite to oneness...
by Brian Tebogo Modise on 5/13/2011 7:45am
The song speaks about the Chitauli, Jobhulon - How they invaded us and mix bred with the humans in order to shape shift and rule us for ever

I just Love Peter Gabriel, His music is mature and Refined. He comples me to go back to my up-bringing and appreciate the Lost and gained oppotunities. He is like a Prophet of our time when it comes to speaking through music. what am I saying. I love it, I love the song.

Peter, peter, Peter.....the first time i heard this song i broke a cold sweat, it was 1989. I was absolutely moved. i looked at my companion who took me to the audio Lab where we were studying, and said what a song. i still feel that moment, what an introduction.If i have an addicion, Peter Gabriel is that ADDICTION. this particular song is expressively expressive.
by Mpuse Motloung on 6/17/2012 10:15am
@ Themba Rakaki, it reminds me of u,the time we had n what we shared... How I am missing you right now *crying*

Just one of my favourates. To me it simply means that when the two are in love,they have become one being. I just feel the harmoneous,loving and caring atmosphere where there is undesrtanding and respect for all.

PG's lyrics in Blood of Eden, Mercy Street, Love to Be Loved, Secret World, Come Talk to Me and so many others are great prose set to such sweet music. They reach deep inside and touch my heart. rgas

Classic indeed. Peter Gabriel you still do it for me.
by rgas on 2/12/2013 1:36am
I have wondered if Peter has a following in Africa. He seems to have been influenced by the music of Africa and so many names in this post sound of African origin. I almost went to see him in concert last fall here in California. Biko is another fav of mine. Nice to share w friends far away. I love his passion, love the lyrics

Just beautiful, the melody and the lyrics. I could listen to this song everyday. It's sad that they don't make songs like this anymore. Peter Gabriel is a living legend.
