lyrics

Oh, Ulysses

Oh, Ulysses
how did you escape
When the sirens called your name?

A fable for the good
A fable for the blind
A fable for those
who missed the signs

Muscles were torn
Bones were shattered
Tempted by love
Tearing me apart

Laughing in between
swigs of my silver flask
This is not the wine
you promised me!
Blindfold, you fool!
Oh, Ulysses

Oh, Ulysses
how did you escape
when the sirens called your name?

Capricious Athena
what sacrifice
will make the seas safe?

From luring calls
and blinding beauty
they’ll run us a ground
into the reefs
where the ships go down

Oh, Ulysses
how did you escape
when the sirens called your name?
