Behind the gates of Paradise, there was a dark foreboding sight
It was Satan in sheep’s clothing, performing the last rites
Over love, and hopes and dreams, the sacrificial lambs of life

There was a greater force with a power over things
Like the time for leaves to turn and fall and the haunting rites of spring
It guides the stars, the mighty winds, and when the tide is coming in

And the virgins came to Paradise in a dance of passion, a dance of life
And the world began unfolding in the Promised Land of Paradise

They were the chosen ones, stars and crosses on their chests
They were the driven, on a mission, they were an image of the best
They were soldiers of redemption, their sins forgiven they were blessed

But the lords and politicians made laws proclaiming wrong and right
Generals marshalled every man and moved their armies through the night
And with their weapons held every entrance into the steely morning light

They held the people captive and they took away their rights
Controlled by Church and State and told what and when to fight
But they couldn’t stop the new world, no, they couldn’t stop the light

And the virgins came to Paradise in a dance of passion, a dance of life
And the world began unfolding in the Promised Land of Paradise

The gods deep in the heavens chose Atlantis for the site
And Venus in her passion came to dance in Paradise
At the Festival of Virgins in their silken gowns of white

And the virgins came to Paradise in a dance of passion, a dance of life
And the world began unfolding in the Promised Land of Paradise
And the virgins came to Paradise, the virgins came to Paradise
In a dance of passion, a dance of life, a dance of passion, a dance of life
And the world began unfolding in the Promised Land of Paradise
