Lyrics:
It's a critical solution
       And the east coast got the blues
       It's a mass of confusion
       Like the lies they sell to you

You got a glass jawed toothache
       Of a mental disease
       An they be runnin' round back
       See 'em line up on their knees
       'Cause the kiss ass sycophants
       Throwin' penance at your feet
     When they got nowhere to go
       Watch 'em come in off the streets
       While they're bangin' out front
       Inside their slammin' to the cruch
       Go on an throw me to the lions
       And the whole damn screamin' bunch
       'Cause the pissed-off rip-offs
       'R' everywhere you turn
       Tell me how a generation's
       Ever s'posed to learn
       This fire is burnin'
       and it's out of control
       It's not a problem you can stop
       It's rock n' roll

     I read it on a wall
       It went straight to my head
       It said "Dance to the tension
       of a world on edge"
       We got racial violence
       And who'll cast the first stone
       And sex is used anyway it can be
       Sometimes when I look out
       It's hard to see the day
       It's a feelin' you can have it
       It's not mine to take away

     Lost in the garden of Eden
       Said we're lost in the garden of Eden
       And there's no one's gonna believe this
       But we're lost in the garden of Eden
       This fire is burnin' and it's out of control
       It's not a problem you can stop
       It's rock n' roll
       Suck on that

     Looking through this point of view
       There's no way I'm gonna fit in
       Don't ya tell me what my eyes see
       Don't ya tell me who to believe in
       I ain't superstitious
       But I know when somethin's wrong
       I've been draggin' my heels
       With a bitch called hope
       Let the undercurrent drag me along

     Lost in the garden of Eden
       Said we're lost in the garden of Eden
       And there's no one's gonna believe this
       But we're lost in the garden of Eden

     Most organized religions make
       A mockery of humanity
       Our governments are dangerous
       And out of control
       The garden of Eden is just another graveyard
       Said if they had someone to buy it
       Said I'm sure they'd sell my soul

     This fire is burnin' and it's out of control
       It's not a problem you can stop
       It's rock n' roll
       Lost in the garden of Eden
       (An we ain't talkin' about no
       poison apple or some missin' rib ya hear)
       Said we're lost in the garden of Eden
       Said there's no one's gonna believe this
       Said we're lost in the garden of Eden
       This fire is burnin' and it's out of control
       It's not a problem you can stop
       It's rock n' roll
