In the cold misty morning
Gleaming rays awake the dawn
Here I stand - a stranger in this land
Does your conscience betray you?
Falling from grace - feel the Sun on my face
Does desire still hold true?

Mystified by her beauty - does the hunter pity his prey?
Under starless skies all Love must die and fade away

Take my hand – Divine or Devil – Make a stand
Seize the day
Yours or mine - Damned of divine
Draw the line - come what may…

Looking down from ethereal skies
Silent crystalline tears I cry
For all must say their last goodbye
To Paradise

Has my yearning been silenced
By angelic skin of white?
Love conquers all, though Heavens fall
This fateful night

Yours or mine - Damned of Divine
Draw the line - serpentine…

Love is a tragedy
All that I have, all that I'll ever need
Is right here inside
Let the winds of freedom be my guide

Looking down from ethereal skies
Silent crystalline tears I cry
For all must say their last goodbye
To Paradise

Looking down from ethereal skies
Silent crystalline tears I cry
For all must say their last goodbye
To Paradise

Say goodbye, goodbye, hold on!

... So I've cheated and I've lied
Been the victim of foolish pride
And I've begged and I've crawled
And I've battled and bleed for it all
So I'll savor the downfall… of Paradise

Looking down from ethereal skies
Silent crystalline tears I cry
For all must say their last goodbye
To Paradise

Looking down from ethereal skies
Silent crystalline tears I cry
For all must say their last goodbye
To Paradise

Looking down from ethereal skies
Silent crystalline tears I cry
For all must say their last goodbye
To Paradise

    Bloody amazing song, and album for that matter.
    Basically I think it's about how he and his significant other are falling apart from each other, but he's thinking about how it used to be, and wonders how it went wrong-hence the title Paradise Lost.
