  • Lyrics: Snakes by the riverside, laughing in my dreams, whispering in my ear, nooses hanging from a tree. There where spirits there to guide me, yeah, they could of helped me see. But none of them even tried. And so I got drunk in an orgy full of shame, and in the end I only had myself to blame. And you won't even have yourself when you talk to snakes, you can bank on that every time. That's the reason why, there's a reason why, Life is hard, this life is hard. All because I had a conversation with a snake, in the garden of Eden, now everything's forever changed. When I woke alone, I had no faith or hope or back bone. And any attempt to find them was no use. Cause you can't un-know what you know, and you can't let it go. But you can embrace your truth. And my truth is that I can't aspire to what I don't believe in, and what I don't believe in, I can't fake or hide. It's all circular you see, and it seems obvious to me, but once you talk to snakes, you'll over analyze. That's the reason why, now I know why. Life is hard, this life is hard. And everything will come, and everything will go. And I will still be here, the only one that ever knows, that's all because I never understood, the power of the serpents, of the evil and the good, Yeah it's all because I had a conversation with a snake, in the Garden of Eden, now everything's forever changed. Don't talk to snakes, don't talk to snakes...

Its familiar faces and characters you know you have seen but who don't necessarily have a name. As the music in Eden washes over you, Craig's emotion packed delivery is as desperate as it is cathartic. No need for expensive psychotherapy here; ...
