Track Name: Great Expectations
I don’t know, I don’t know what Adam saw in Eve
That he could not find in all the snakes and beasts
She’s a killer, an animal. It’s no different now
It only takes a single bite for her to bring you down

You were built to break my heart
And I was built to be ripped apart
My expectations were so great
But love is revenge on the human race

“Bone of bone, and flesh of flesh” woman took from man
As time went on there was nothing left; she’d taken all he had
First his soul and then his heart, then every ounce of joy
Was this the plan from the start? Was she created to destroy?

You were built to break my heart
And I was built to be ripped apart
My expectations were so great
But love is revenge on the human race

And the fall of man
Came not with what he ate
And the fall of man
Came the day that Eve was made

You were built to break my heart
And I was built to be ripped apart
My expectations were so great
But love is revenge on the human race
Love is revenge on the human race
