[edit] Lyrics

    a) EDEN EYE
    My mouth was a crib and it was growing lies
    I didn't know what love was on that day
    my heart's a tiny bloodclot
    I picked at it
    it never heals it never goes away
    
    I burned all the good things in The Eden Eye
    we were too dumb to run too dead to die
    I burned all the good things in The Eden Eye
    we were too dumb to run too dead to die
    
    This was never my world
    you took the angel away
    I'd kill myself to make everybody pay
    This was never my world
    you took the angel away
    I'd kill myself to make everybody pay
    
    I would have told her then
    she was the only thing
    I could love in this dying world
    but the simple word "love" itself
    already died and went away
    
    This was never my world
    you took the angel away
    I'd kill myself to make everybody pay
    This was never my world
    you took the angel away
    I'd kill myself to make everybody pay
    
    I burned all the good things in The Eden Eye
    we were too dumb to run too dead to die
    I burned all the good things in The Eden Eye
    we were too dumb to run too dead to die
    
    b)APPLE OF DISCORD
    Her heart's a bloodstained egg
    we didn't handle with care
    it's broken and bleeding
    and we can never repair
