The Smoke Of Eden

This song is by Beau and appears on the compilation album Edge Of The Dark: Unreleased Recordings 1972 - 1985 (2009).

Original video
You rise to meet me;
Here you greet a stranger in this early dawn
As many more have yet to come.
The generation yet unborn
Will arise before it has begun
To see the Smoke of Eden.

You try to shame me.
Here, the game is played by one who cannot lose
But only gain and gather in.
The body where all souls are fused
Can call to all from that wherein
There lies the Smoke of Eden.

And you try to take me.
Here you break a vow you never meant to keep
But only wait and take your turn.
While darkened cities lie asleep
Will you fire a world so often burned
And free the Smoke of Eden.

You rise to meet me;
Here you greet a stranger in this early dawn
As many more have yet to come.
The generation yet unborn
Will arise before it has begun
To see the Smoke of Eden.
