Cain slew Abel with a stick and a knife
After the fall of Paradise
Payment due for his parent's crime
Payment due until the end of time
He took off running but he's never going to stop
Don't do no good to call the cops
They just ride by and smile and wave
It's a bad situation nobody can save
Down in the ruins of Paradise
Down in the ruins of Paradise

The Serpent stood up and he said with a grin
You can build it back up
I'll just tear it down again
Don't do no good for you to weep and moan
The master's in rut
With the lady of the home
Down in the ruins of Paradise
Down in the ruins of Paradise

The killers keep coming
Let 'em shoot each other down
Down in the ruins of the tumbled down town
Down in the ruins of Paradise
Down in the ruins of Paradise
Down in the ruins of Paradise
Down in the ruins of Paradise

Song facts

"We live under the curse of Abel and Adam and Eve. The serpent appears as a reminder that evil never rests, and will do his work regardless of what the best in us might try to do. Fighting and fornicating and running from police who really don't give a shit about much unless their paid well enough to." - David Childers
