We were walking in paradise
Never did notice

Far beyond this vale of tears
We could never have guessed

Blind in the buddha land
Looking for trouble
We had been told of a place
Far beyond this vale of tears
We could never have guessed
We were already blessed
There we were, where we are
In the garden
