"An Ode to Locksmiths" is a track of the Type O Negative album Dead Again, released in 2007. This song features guitar riffs sounding like "Sabbath Bloody Sabbath" and grooves resembling "Evil Woman" by Black Sabbath. Canto I of this track, titled "Tree of Knowledge", talks about Satan forcing Eve to eat a forbidden apple from the tree after she was raped, and "Canto II: Ain't Goin' Home", talks about having nowhere to go.

Lyrics Edit

Canto I: Tree of Knowledge

Where the fuck are my keys?

Been given the keys I knew I'd receive
Be careful what you're asking for
Thy rod and thy staff simply twelve toned math
An earful opening all doors

Simon the roman gone fission for man
If you're caught is to be freed
Come open your lock by using a rock
Or sowing the proper seeds

Woe to thee all woman of land, air and sea
Adam was the serpent apple 'tween his knees
Seduced by a snake worshiped by nations
Banished forth, from Eden it's the male who is Satan

From the tree of knowledge (a metaphor for sex)
Plucked a ripened globs of fruit that of her innocence
Since forbidden resisted forcing her to taste
Now I know why girls hate boys 'cause Eve was in fact raped

From the tree of knowledge (a metaphor for sex)
Plucked a ripened globs of fruit that of her innocence
Since forbidden resisted forcing her to taste
Now I know why girls hate boys 'cause Eve was in fact raped, raped

Canto II: Ain't Goin' Home

You ain't goin' nowhere
Everybody, ready, let's go

We ain't goin' home - got nowhere to go
We ain't goin' home - got nowhere to go
We ain't goin' home - got nowhere to go
We ain't goin' home - got nowhere to go
Nowhere to go
Nowhere to go

Come on, you come on

We ain't goin' home - got nowhere to go
We ain't goin' home - got nowhere to go
We ain't goin' home - got nowhere to go
We ain't goin' home - got nowhere to go
Nowhere to go
Nowhere to go
Nowhere to go
