lyrics

Hermes held aloft with my hand ‘round his throat
above the blood-stained battle
my helmet crested with plumes
My serpent-string song drives the men on
rallied by war’s dreadful roar
I’m strengthened by their savagery

Hermes held with my sword to his throat
I’ve conceived new methods of carnage
malevolence, wrath, relentlessness
He’s so thin, he’s hardly there at all
destroy the one who once saved me
in order to avoid — to avoid

Hermes plummets from my grasp
I didn’t try to stop myself
fear rallied my anger, my self-importance
On my knees search among the piles
of bodies
did I imagine you?
did I imagine you?
I want you to be real
to wash away my pain
to wash away this shame­
