lyrics

Greeks said that a ballerina
Divided the sky from the Earth
To get a soil where to dance
Prometheus made the man,
Persephone his woman
Strong characters so diverse

Greeks said that men always put a coin
Within the dead men’s mouth to pay
Charon’s obol for him to carry
Their souls together to the world of the dead

If the Hades there is my grandma
And my old friends I am sure it’s a better place
With all its animals, saints, and heroes
Is a place crowded with beautiful things

How about those saints and heroes
All the grandmas and friends return
One day down to tie up their loose ends
Then drive back home

Sun, and moon and galaxy far dwell
On a plane of immanence while
We are waiting for Charon’s boat
To take us up there
