Hades (See you in hell)

I could burn for a thousand years and never be warm enough

Could melt with a thousand suns

and never feel a thing

I could eat the pomegranite seeds

and stay here forever

In the burning lands

where old gods wither

and dead men walk

with their eyes of glass

and cold,cold souls

In the underworld

lower than beyond

and further still

I am a pale ghost, pretty wraith, a Persephone

Bring me back into the sunlight

And at a glance, l’ll disappear

Should any hapless Orpheus

bargain for my soul

with the Lord of the Dead

Like Lot’s wife, I’ll turn

Better taste the salt off me while you can

before I turn bitter

Salt of the dead ocean

Of tears no longer to be shed…
