Who shot that arrow in your throat
Who missed the crimson apple
It hung heavy on the tree above your head
This chaos, this calamity, this garden once was perfect
Give your immortality to me; I'll set you up against the stars

Gloria,
We lied, we can't go on
This is the time and this is the place to be, alive

Who shot that arrow in your throat
Who missed the crimson apple
And there is discord in the garden tonight

The sea is wine red
This is the death of beauty
The doves have died
The lovers have lied

I cut the arrow from your neck
Stretched you beneath the tree
Among the roots and baby's breath
I covered us with silver leaves

Gloria,
We lied, we can't go on
This is the time and this is the place to be, alive

The sea is wine red
This is the death of beauty
The doves have died
The lovers have lied

The sea is wine red
This is the death of beauty
The doves have died
The lovers have lied

The sea is wine red
This is the death of beauty
The doves have died
The lovers have lied

Is that cool.

    It follows the story of Adam and Eve. "Who missed the crimson apple? It hung heavy on the tree above your head." The forbidden fruit..."The doves have died, and lovers have lied." Peace is gone from the garden, and Eve lied to God, saying that she wouldn't pick the fruit, but she did.

    Either she is singing directly about the Garden, or she is relating a personal relationship to the Garden.
    That is why he calls her Gloria, which is her name in the song. (By her, I mean the singer)

    Eve is telling Adam,
    Who shot that arrow in your throat, who missed the crimson apple?"
    Because Eve wanted the apple. the forbidden fruit.
    And Adam would not get that fruit for her because he felt guilty, hence the arrow in his throat.

    In the Bible, the second Eve ate the fruit, God knew, and she lied to His face.

    And that was the death of beauty.

    The sea became filled with sin "sea is wine red" (drunkenness)
    And that was the death of beauty.

    Because Adam and Eve ate the apple, did you know,
    that is why women are plagued with menstrual cycles and painful childbirth?

    If it wasn't for greed, gluttony, and the involuntary sin chiseled into the minds of humans, us women would not go through such pain.
