lyrics

Goddess of the underworld
Mistress of the afterlife

As Persephone
Gathered flowers
Hades intervened
To drag her downward

When he opened up the earth
Persephone was swallowed
And such remained her curse
As witnessed by Apollo

Oh oh oh oh
Persephone
Oh oh oh oh
What's left for
What's left for me?

Goddess of the underworld
Mistress of the afterlife

Demeter roamed the land
To find her daughter
She did not understand
Where Hades brought her

And she searched relentlessly
Till a fountain filled her spirit
And she cried: "Persephone"
Who alas, could never hear it

Oh oh oh oh
Persephone
Oh oh oh oh
What's left for
What's left for me?

Goddess of the underworld
Mistress of the afterlife

Come Spring she'd be set free
Winter remanded
He fed Persephone
A pomegranate

Goddess of the underworld
Mistress of the afterlife
