Poseidon is so unforgiving
A journey that's taken decades to complete
A journey that has kidnapped and hoisted me on an altar of martyrdom
I can't give what I don't have
I have sacrificed my youth, my pride, and my vanity
I didn't miss the close-ups of your face until it was too late
I cannot ask you to wait for me after all that's has been said and done
These voices of purgatory lure my men and I to our doom
One succubus is all it took for us to surrender
I lament the courage I had to fight off any misdirecting notion
I failed the Gods and now, they have corrupted me
I didn't miss the scent of your hair until it was stolen from me
In what world are you and I destined to wake up next to one another again?
Is there any hope left for us in the here and now?
Is Here gone? Is Now over?
A perilous whirlpool has tamed my senses
My spellbound ship is seeking out its fate among the voices of the damned
My men are ravished
I am tired from war and from the leagues between us
One delay has multiplied into many
Will I ever see your face again?
Memory has already eroded away any lingering facade
Like the waves that cause havoc,
I am on a journey that will not pause
Poseidon, have mercy on me
The Mediterranean was once captivating to me but now I'm just sick of it
This journey has kept me from home for far too long
End my suffering
Lead me back home
