about

My song is about Hades.

lyrics

Please allow me to introduce myself, I’m the one you’ll never see
‘Till Charon carries you across the Achenar, and delivers your soul to me

I could have been like Zeus on Olympus, or Poseiden in the sea
But I’m the brother drew the short straw, so the Underworld went to me

I’m not your Satan, I’m not your devil
I ain’t looking to steal your soul
It’s just my job to keep you here
When it’s finally your time to go

You might be headed to Elysium or the Meadows of Asphodel
But if you’re headed to the Fields of Punishment
It’s probably just as well

And if should you doubt if Cerberus and I take our job very seriously
The reason Sisyphus still pushes that stone - that was me

So if you fear to say my name , cause of something I might do to you
You can just call me Pluto, that’s what the Romans do

So please allow me to introduce myself, I’m the one you never see
So I guess I got some bad news for you if you’re introducing yourself to me
Yeah I guess I got some bad news for you if you’re introducing yourself to me
