Falling for Orpheus

by The Honeyfire

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
