about

Typically I don't think I would post a song this simple online, especially if it is all autotuned and with some warbly spots, but I have a strange attachment with it. There are some points that sound almost magical. I've played around with adding more tracks, adding more interest, varying sounds for hours, but i ended up deleting all that and just stripping the song back down to this, and I hope you may enjoy it!

lyrics

There was a place,
Near the Tigris and Euphrates,
That I once lived.
And there that place was made,
Days after words created time and space

It was paradise,
It was perfect,
It was paradise,
Back when I was godly

There was a tree,
And I remember back when God walked with me,
One thing He said explicitly,
Do not eat the fruit if this tree.

That was back when the birds would nest in my hand,
Back when I had dominion over the land,
When holiness was oxygen,
That I kept breathing in until that fruit hit my hand,
A serpent told my wife we were human
But we could be like God, oh I could be like God...
oh how we fell.
