He Who Saw The Deep

This song was created for Game of Bands round 4 : "A Character or Story from Ancient Mythology"

Lyrics:

King, strong and cruel, people plead, gods help us
Man, wild untamed, to stop the king, the two will go journeying
Quest, long and hard, to the forest hill, slay the giant demi-god
Dreams, fire storms, raging bulls, heroes see only victory

Chorus
Fierce giant, bound by prison winds, "beg for mercy," man boasts
No hiding, no escaping death, and the fate before him

Goddess lusts for king, he turns away, ignites her wrath
Bulls, from heavens high, fights in vain, none can stand before the king

Bridge
Tonight I dreamed of gods
Seeking vengeance on mortals
Why must we pay for their transgressions?
Why must I be the one to suffer?

Chorus
Dark fever, draining soul, prayers for the death of a warrior
No hiding, no escaping death, and the fate before him

King, grieves for man, fears his life, the gods are a fickle thing
Seeks eternal life, survivor of, a flooded history
Hears his tale of woe, through endless storms, the gods then smiled on him
King, stay awake for seven days, and you will be young again

Chorus
Eyes heavy, sleep taking hold, the king will dream
No hiding, no escaping death, but given one last chance
On oceans floor, plant of life, stolen by the serpent's night
No hiding, no escaping death, and the fate before him

Outro
We pay for all transgressions
I am the one to suffer
I am the one
[Exit]
