lyrics

Oh, the sweet sweet scent of Eden.
It was carried to me on a breeze through the bars of my cage.
Oh, the sweet sweet taste of freedom.
It was torture to me but somehow also a promise of the end of the age.

Oh tell me. Are you the one that I've been waiting for?
Are you the one that I've been praying for?
Or should I wait for someone else?

Beautiful dancer, no man could refuse her,
But all that she asks for is my head on plate.
So cheap, so easy, the life of a messenger.
How faithfully I served but now I rot here in this cage.

Oh tell me. Are you the one that I've been waiting for?
Are you the one that I've been praying for?
Or should I wait for someone else?
Tell me, tell me, are you the one that I've been waiting for?
'Cos I can hear the footsetps of my executioner
And now he's standing at my door

I heard the lame were dancing
I heard the blind had been made to see
I heard that freedom was advancing
But I fear it's all a bit too late for me
