“Way Down In The Hole” is a 1987 song by Tom Waits. It is about a walk in the Garden of Eden, a place commonly associated with beauty and peace. But that perfect place also gives house to the devil, always ready to deceive and corrupt.
To walk in the garden you got to take the Jesus hand only him “has got the fire and the fury to his command” and can grant you safe passage through it, “keeping the devil way down in the hole”
So even the most beautiful place can be a very dark and scary place, hiding the greatest danger inside every dark depth.
Who knows what lives in the darkness? Even here, even in our garden.
