History and sentiment behind song

In the Christian Bible, Salomé is known as the step-daughter of Herod the Great, who danced the Dance of the Seven Veils. She is said to have asked for the head of John the Baptist. What does Adam have to do with this? Perhaps because he is the "original man," Salomé wants to claim him as well.
