Perfect (Part 1) lyrics

Perfect (Part 1)

FATHER
CHILDREN OF EDEN,
HERE IS YOUR GARDEN.
LIVE IN CONTENTMENT;
THIS IS YOUR HOME…

ADAM
It’s wonderful! It’s beautiful! It’s…
It’s…

EVE
It’s perfect!

FATHER
Exactly.

STORYTELLERS
AND THE GRASS WAS PERFECT,
AND THE SKY WAS PERFECT,
AND THE BARK OF THE TREES WAS DAPPLED AND ROUGH…
BUT NOT TOO ROUGH ..
AND WHERE THERE WAS A CLOUD,
THE ONLY CLOUD ALLOWED
WAS FLEECY, WHITE,
AND JUST ASYMMETRIC ENOUGH.

AND AS FOR PERFECT NAMES,
OF COURSE THEY HAD ‘EM…

FATHER
I DO BELIEVE
I’LL CALL YOU… “EVE”…
EVE
AND WHO'S HE?

ADAM
MADAM, I’M ADAM!

EVE
Father?

FATHER
Yes?

EVE
What’s that?

FATHER
Where?

ADAM
There. the water sort of… falls out of the rocks.

FATHER
Oh, that. It’s called a “waterfall.”

ADAM
A “waterfall?”

FATHER
Yes…
… You see, the water comes gushing out…

EVE
No, no, not that!
That!

FATHER
Oh, that! That’s a hill.
ADAM
It’s very high up.

FATHER
As close as I could get it to the stars.


EVE
No, no, no! On top of the hill.

FATHER
Oh… that… It’s just a tree.

EVE
But it’s glistening.

FATHER
No, it’s not! Is it?

ADAM
Well, it is glistening a bit.

FATHER
Yes, well… er… that would be the fruit.

EVE
Why is the fruit glistening?

FATHER
Well…

EVE
Is it a special kind of a tree?

ADAM
Eve… I don’t think you should ask so many questions.

EVE
Why not?

FATHER
All right! Look! It’s called the Tree of Knowledge. And whether the fruit is
glistening or not…

EVE
Well, it is…

FATHER
All right! It’s glistening. The fruit is glistening. It’s also very, very bad for you,
and you must never, ever eat it. Or even touch it. Understand?

ADAM
It’s all right, Father. We won’t touch it.

EVE
Why not?

FATHER
You don’t need to know that…

EVE
Why not?

FATHER
Children! If you love me, if you love this family, you will never eat of that fruit.
Either of you.

ADAM
We promise, Father.
(Looks at EVE)
Eve…

EVE
(After a moment)
We promise.

FATHER
Thank you.

EVE
But if it isn’t good for us, Father, why did you put it here?
