I'm a big fan of Edgar Allen Poe. I was reading a collection of his short stories when I started writing the lyrics to this song. I envision the story of a man who has achieved peace and happiness in his dream home, his own personal nirvana. A beautiful house with a vast and luscious garden that he enjoys tending. By the end of the story he realizes that everything is not always what it seems. While digging in his garden he finds the remains of an innocent little girl. The music gives the whole song a very creepy vibe. A perfect backdrop to a very twisted tale. - Duane Okun
