Bob Dylan
Gates Of Eden


Of war and peace the truth just twists
Its curfew gull just glides
Upon four-legged forest clouds
The cowboy angel rides
With his candle lit into the sun
Though its glow is waxed in black
All except when 'neath the trees of Eden

The lamppost stands with folded arms
Its iron claws attached
To curbs 'neath holes where babies wail
Though it shadows metal badge
All and all can only fall
With a crashing but meaningless blow
No sound ever comes from the Gates of Eden

The savage soldier sticks his head in sand
And then complains
Unto the shoeless hunter who's gone deaf
But still remains
Upon the beach where hound dogs bay
At ships with tattooed sails
Heading for the Gates of Eden

With a time-rusted compass blade
Aladdin and his lamp
Sits with Utopian hermit monks
Side saddle on the Golden Calf
And on their promises of paradise
You will not hear a laugh
All except inside the Gates of Eden

Relationships of ownership
They whisper in the wings
To those condemned to act accordingly
And wait for succeeding kings
And I try to harmonize with songs
The lonesome sparrow sings
There are no kings inside the Gates of Eden

The motorcycle black madonna
Two-wheeled gypsy queen
And her silver-studded phantom cause
The gray flannel dwarf to scream
As he weeps to wicked birds of prey
Who pick up on his bread crumb sins
And there are no sins inside the Gates of Eden

The kingdoms of Experience
In the precious wind they rot
While paupers change possessions
Each one wishing for what the other has got
And the princess and the prince
Discuss what's real and what is not
It doesn't matter inside the Gates of Eden

The foreign sun, it squints upon
A bed that is never mine
As friends and other strangers
From their fates try to resign
Leaving men wholly, totally free
To do anything they wish to do but die
And there are no trials inside the Gates of Eden

At dawn my lover comes to me
And tells me of her dreams
With no attempts to shovel the glimpse
Into the ditch of what each one means
At times I think there are no words
But these to tell what's true
And there are no truths outside the Gates of Eden


Mirror lyrics:

And there are no truths outside the Gates of Eden
But these to tell what's true
At times I think there are no words
Into the ditch of what each one means
With no attempts to shovel the glimpse
And tells me of her dreams
At dawn my lover comes to me

And there are no trials inside the Gates of Eden
To do anything they wish to do but die
Leaving men wholly, totally free
From their fates try to resign
As friends and other strangers
A bed that is never mine
The foreign sun, it squints upon

It doesn't matter inside the Gates of Eden
Discuss what's real and what is not
And the princess and the prince
Each one wishing for what the other has got
While paupers change possessions
In the precious wind they rot
The kingdoms of Experience

And there are no sins inside the Gates of Eden
Who pick up on his bread crumb sins
As he weeps to wicked birds of prey
The gray flannel dwarf to scream
And her silver-studded phantom cause
Two-wheeled gypsy queen
The motorcycle black madonna

There are no kings inside the Gates of Eden
The lonesome sparrow sings
And I try to harmonize with songs
And wait for succeeding kings
To those condemned to act accordingly
They whisper in the wings
Relationships of ownership

All except inside the Gates of Eden
You will not hear a laugh
And on their promises of paradise
Side saddle on the Golden Calf
Sits with Utopian hermit monks
Aladdin and his lamp
With a time-rusted compass blade

Heading for the Gates of Eden
At ships with tattooed sails
Upon the beach where hound dogs bay
But still remains
Unto the shoeless hunter who's gone deaf
And then complains
The savage soldier sticks his head in sand

No sound ever comes from the Gates of Eden
With a crashing but meaningless blow
All and all can only fall
Though it shadows metal badge
To curbs 'neath holes where babies wail
Its iron claws attached
The lamppost stands with folded arms

All except when 'neath the trees of Eden
Though its glow is waxed in black
With his candle lit into the sun
The cowboy angel rides
Upon four-legged forest clouds
Its curfew gull just glides
Of war and peace the truth just twists
