I’m probably right in assuming,
The most people never believed,
There was ever a Garden of Eden
Or a couple called Adam and Eve.
It’s not really credible is it?
In fact, it just doesn’t compute
That the guy lost his paradise garden
Just because he ate one piece of fruit.
Fair enough he was told that he couldn’t
He was told eating apples was banned
But the guy just gave into temptation
Sure the apple was growing on his land.
So the Adam and Eve stuff is nonsense
It’s a story, that’s all, nothing more
It’s a fairy tale, fiction, a fable,
And best if it’s simply ignored.
Only, well, have a look at our planet
It’s currently not in great nick
Our climate is pretty well ruined
And millions of people are sick.
If you think about what our earth looked like
Before human beings arrived
It had blue skies and crystal clear oceans
And nature and animals thrived.
There was one rule for mankind to follow
One rule for the whole human race
And this was it – it’s so very simple:
We were tasked to look after the place
But obviously that was beyond us
So we pumped filth into clean air
Now some people are trying to fix it
While others are turning to prayer
You see, Adam had just one instruction
He didn’t obey – so he lost
We too only had to do one thing
We didn’t and we’re now paying the cost
So maybe there wasn’t an Adam
And there probably wasn’t an Eve
But their story can teach us a lesson
And maybe we’ll get a reprieve
We were given a Garden of Eden
We destroyed it because of our greed
We haven’t much time left to save it
Let’s hope and let’s pray we succeed.
