lyrics

They say, the man who mocked the gods
Became the heavenly jester,
And walked among celestial shores
With a mien of grief and lust.

Yet every day at eventide
He was summoned to the vesper
With his thoughtful frown to raise their hearts
And notions to make them laugh.

It was nectar, ambrosia, golden calf,
Red light, blue velvet, soft muzak;
When he heard a voice apart,
Sounding through the stifling sough:
‘Of all the things to mock - he chose the gods.’

They say that day the thorn was struck
And inward turned his ire,
The quiet venom nestled deep
And nurtured his desire.

O mockingbird, thy blazing plumes
Will soon crumble to ashes,
O mockingbird, thy fiery fumes
Will only render you with sadness.
Of all the things to bear - yours will be madness!

But the ethereal machinery
In this pond’rous, profound scenery
Revelled at whim’s dim revery
- Just juggernauts at play.

Plutonian flair, Plutosian things,
Ashen bonds and diamond rings,
Olympus’ air won’t bear his wings.
Tomorrow eats today.

Leaping from the vault’s abyss
In a vast redeeming blaze
He takes the step beyond the cliff
And into Earth’s embrace.
