Running Away From Eden
Lyrics and melody by Cat Faber 2020

We are running away from Eden
Too quickly to choose the route
With an angel behind
With fire on his mind
Into famine and flood and drought
We will run till our hearts give out

We are running away from Eden
In the harsh unfamiliar sun
We’ve no choice but to go
We believe there is no
Forgiveness for what we’ve done
There is nothing to do but run.

So often it is repeated
We expect it as destiny
We don’t wait to be blamed
But pre-emptively shamed
We deny or attack or flee...
Is it always our doom to be--

Running away from Eden
The tragedy of our flight
Is that sometimes we choose
To make certain we lose
The people who brought us light,
Over things we could still put right.

I write music about science fiction and fantasy subjects, commonly referred to as "filk."

I write much faster than I can record. Recent songs may be found at my website--the URL is given below.
