Paradise

I’ve dreamed of paradise

I’ve stood outside it’s gates

Seen the perfect world therein

And known it was not for me

 

I create perfection

Not for me but for you

It’s all I shall ever do

For I am a monster

 

And in my paradise

There is no place for a serpent

Especially one who will never repent

Though this Eden be built is upon lies

 

It will stand long after I have turned to dust

Its gates will never rust

They will forever glitter with the shine of gold

For my soul I sold

For copper and silver to make them with

 

My craftsmanship is without doubt

And the ends justify my means

For there all is what it seems

And you know the happiness you deserve
