MOTHER OF MUSES‬












MOTHER OF MUSES‬









Mother of Muses sing for me

Sing of the mountains and the deep dark sea




Sing of the lakes and the nymphs of the forest

Sing your hearts out all ye women of the chorus




Sing of honour and fame and glory be

Mother of Muses sing for me




Mother of Muses sing for my heart

Sing of a love too soon to depart




Sing of the heroes who stood alone

Whose names are engraved on tablets of stone




Who struggled with pain so the world could go free

Mother of Muses sing for me




Sing of Sherman, Montgomery, and Scott

And of Zhukov, and Patton, and the battles they fought




Who cleared the path for Presley to sing

Who carved the path for Martin Luther King




Who did what they did and they went on their way

Man, I could tell their stories all day




Iím falling in love with Calliope

She donít belong to anyone - why not give her to me




Sheís speaking to me - speaking with her eyes

Iíve grown so tired of chasing lies




Mother of Muses - wherever you are

Iíve already outlived my life by far




Mother of Muses - unleash your wrath

Things I canít see - theyíre blocking my path




Show me your wisdom - tell me my fate

Put me upright - make me walk straight




Forge my identity from the inside out

You know what Iím talking about




Take me to the river - release your charms

Let me lay down a while in your sweet loviní arms




Wake me - shake me - free me from sin

Make me invisible like the wind




Got a mind to ramble - got a mind to roam

Iím traveliní light and Iím a-slow cominí home
