Hades & Persephone


When I think about the past time that's locked me into now
The Sea of what was drowning me seems to hold me down

I fight, struggle throughout the waves, and it's now clear to see
What really made me worth the fight? You shall never set me free

Gaze into this emptiness and you can see the truth
Go ahead and craft your lies, but I am your living proof

Our deal was made centuries ago and who am I to judge?
I shook your hand and granted the promise of true love

Each millennia, your heart is a cell for my soul to dwell
And I thank you, my love, for letting me hide in this shell
