Track Name: Falling for Orpheus
The serpent bites, there goes my light
I am suddenly alone
My thread is cut, I'm out of luck
And the underworld's my home

Alone down here, as if he's forgotten me
So dark and cold, another he keeps me here in the darkness
Orpheus where are you now
I wish no man would claim me

My life lies in your callous hands
Another victim I'm of man
I am not strong when you are near
We can't go on like this, my dear
Since when did man decide my fate
One can't survive on fear and hate

He's here at last, they bargain for my life
What do they gain, a musician and a king fighting for me
Orpheus what have you done
I wish no man would claim me

Behind the sun, a silhouette
The darkened shadow I belong to
Orpheus you've ruined us
And the underworld's my home
