    Cerberus

    In Hades dank depths,
    On stalactite shores,
    Where the river laps,
    The hands of scores
    Of countless damned
    Pound the ground
    Below where Cerberus sits.

    No dog of war let loose, is he,
    A chaining beast, to guard the free
    He paws and maws the souls of men,
    Cast low from the mighty Zeus.

    Heel, mongrel mutt and muster!
    To the black side of your master,
    The caster of fates beyond the door,
    Retreat.
    Lay monster at his feet,
    Until I too pass down the waters,
    Then let me peacefully beyond
    You mighty Cerberus beast.

    Cerberus

    Hears a lulling song
    Doom awaits beyond his might
    The soldiers sneak past

    Three Heads, One Heart

    He was the guard…
    The embodiment of Hell
    These three heads,
    That inside one dwell.

    He can be Hades,
    The breeze of Persephone,
    Going from Venus to Mars
    Right in front of me.

    Changing faster than
    Tidal movements of the sea
    This great beast of a man,
    Snarling and snapping at me.

    It would be a Herculean task
    To change you...to choose....
    Which heads to sever?
    Feeling either way I lose.

    Call Off Your Hellhound

    Call off your hellhound
    of many snapping jaws.
    Play a fair game, abide
    by the living world's laws.

    You know that I am just one man
    so fight me one on one.
    If I must face both you and them
    I'll have no choice but to run.

    Call off your snarling hellhound
    with all its angry eyes.
    If I must be torn apart let you
    alone cut me down to size.
