lyrics

We're standing naked in this garden and baby we've got everything we need
We've got fruits and trees and animals as far as our eyes can see
But I'm looking at you naked and I'm thinking things that I oughtn't be
Girl, I see that you got buttons won't you come to me and show me what they mean
He said don't eat those apples but the snake's been saying different things to you and me
Ah, I know he said don't 'em but I say 'fuck him!' let's find out what they mean

Now we're living in a castle and we got slaves and we got horses in teams
We've got weapons made of metal, we've fortified ourselves against our enemies
We've conquered those around us, we've extended the bloody hand of Christianity
You'd think the peasants would be happy but they're raging and they're violent and they're mean!
The Good Book says I shouldn't kill but the Church says they'll stand behind me
I know the Good Book says I shouldn't kill but it's the only solution I can see

Now we're living in skyscrapers looking out onto the mountains and the seas
We've got cars and we've got factories creating and providing all our needs
We've stabilized our borders we've found peace through massive weaponry
All I have to do is push a button, babe, and your entire civilization is history!
Science says I shouldn't detonate a bomb using nuclear energy
I know science says I shouldn't but it's the only way that I can keep the peace

Now we're floating up above the Earth in a spacecraft free from gravity
They say you shouldn't try to touch the hand of God but it's been calling out to me
Just look at all these buttons! I don't even know what any of them mean!
Seems like all these buttons haven't made anything any clearer to me
Maybe somewhere out here we'll find a little garden just for you and me
Yeah, maybe somewhere out here we'll find a little garden just for you and me
