Apples & Eves

by Stephen Daniel Ruiz

She’s got an appetite for horror
But she loves to cry
And I know why
And she loves to pick the flowers
Just to watch them die
My oh my

Your guess is as good as mine
No one can tell, not even time
But I could never bear to still this breeze

Apples and Eves in the garden
What can I do
I feel naked without you
All of these apples and Eves in the garden
What is a man to do

She tells me what I want to hear
But that’s just fine
I don’t mind
And she’ll leave me in the dark
For her own piece of mind
While I lose a piece of mine

Her fruit is dripping bittersweet
But still it’s all so tongue in cheek
I need to taste the colors I can’t see

Apples and Eves in the garden
What can I do
I feel naked without you
All of these apples and Eves in the garden
What is a man to do
What is a man to do

Chemicals, I need to up the dose
Until it wears me down
And I give up the ghost
Take the flatline
Heading out of comatose
I could stop this train
But I already know
That I’ll be back for more
I’m always back for more

Apples and Eves in the garden
What can I do
I feel naked without you

Apples and Eves in the garden
What can I do
I feel naked without you
All of these apples and Eves in the garden
What is a man to do
What is a man to do
With all these apples and Eves
