But Then I Got Married (Hera’s Song)

I used to get around
But then I got married
I was the talk of the town
But then I got married

My life was full of smiles
Until I walked down the aisle
Now all I want to do is die
Ohh I used to be so carefree
Sipping wine with the bourgeoisie
But then I got married

I had a lot to say
But then I got married
I used to have fun everyday
But then I got married

I am a hollow shell of who I used to be
I wish that someone would relieve me of this misery

My life was full of smiles
Until I walked down the aisle
Now all I want to do is die die die die
Yeah
I used to be so carefree
Sipping wine with the bourgeoisie
But then I got married
Why did I get married?
Oh it’s too late, I’m married

Bad Luck (Hephaestus’ Song)

I’m just a fatalistic fool I’m always getting trampled
(A victim of circumstance)
I want to do what’s right And set a good example
But I never get a chance
Or maybe I’ve just got bad luck

I’m a child of royalty I should have all the answers
(Privilege only gets you so far)
I married a beauty queen But it turned into a disaster
I didn’t stand a chance
Or maybe I’ve just got bad luck

(Baby it’s just part of the plan)
But it’s all too much for just one man
(Your destiny has been determined)
And maybe I’ve just got bad luck
Black cats follow me
Everywhere I go
I wish I could break free
But I’m in the undertow
My fate is written in the stars
I fear a retrograding Mars
Or maybe I’m just stuck
Or maybe I’ve just got bad luck

Solo

(Baby it’s just part of the plan)
But it’s all too much for just one man
(Your destiny has been determined)
And maybe I’ve just got bad luck maybe I’ve just got bad maybe I’ve just got bad
Baby I’ve just got bad luck

A Lone Hunter (Artemis’ Song)

I’m a hunter – working in the jungles at night
My poisoned arrows fly though pale moonlight
No one tells me what to do
Aint got nobody to answer to
I’m on my own and I can do whatever I like

I’m a lone
Hunter
I’m a lone
Hunter
I’m a lone
Hunter
I’m a lone
Hunter

I’m hunter – I’m never gonna be a wife
A man only brings stress, struggle, and strife
And I’d rather be stuck with Hades
Than tied down with a crying baby
I don’t need family interrupting my life

I’m a lone
Hunter
I’m a lone
Hunter
I’m a lone
Hunter
I’m a lone
Hunter

Now I’m not saying
That I’m happy
Or that I planned it this way
I’m just a hunter and hunting is all I know

Hunter
I’m alone
Hunter
I’m alone
Hunter
I’m alone
Hunter
I’m alone I’m alone

A Strong Foundation (Athena’s Song)

Oh Poseidon won’t you put your trident down
Oh Poseidon won’t you put your trident down

Start off with a strong foundation
If you want longevity
You’ve got to have good relations
To create stability

Find yourself a good location
And plant an olive tree
Surround yourself with good vibrations
Trust and honesty

Don’t you get discouraged
It’s easier to say than do
Compromise takes courage
But love will see you through

If you provide the inspiration
It inspires unity
When you start off with a strong foundation
You create community

Don’t you get discouraged
It’s easier to say than do
Compromise takes courage
But love will see you through

If you provide the inspiration
It inspires unity
When you start off with a strong foundation
You create community

When you start off with a strong foundation
A strong foundation
When you start off with a strong foundation
You create community

Oh Poseidon won’t you put your trident down
Oh Poseidon won’t you put your trident down

It’s a Wicked Life (Hades’ Song)

Everything will be okay
And then you’re going to die
It’s something that you’ve got to face
It’s something that you can’t deny

Everybody worries about what tomorrow brings
Then before they know it’s time to go, they’ve got to give up everything

It’s a wicked life
A wicked life
It’s a wicked life
A wicked life

People are always wondering
What happens when they die
Is there an afterlife
Waiting up in the sky

Is this all for nothing, is life only but a dream
Then before they know it’s time to go, they’ve got to give up everything

It’s a wicked life
A wicked life
It’s a wicked life
A wicked life

Tomorrow is a promise
That many don’t receive
Some don’t want to hear this
Others are just naive

So sell all your possessions and go travel the world
Because before you know it’s time to go, you’ve got to give up everything

It’s a wicked life
A wicked life
It’s a wicked life
A wicked life

You Won’t Go With a God (Hermes’ Song)

It was faith that kept us stable
And gave us some control
It wasn’t just some fable
That everyone was told
We were brought a message
Delivered from above
Each and every passage
Taught us how to love

But now you say you want to leave
You want to break away
And there is nothing I can do
That will make you stay
You won’t go with a god
Go with a god

If Poseidon left the oceans
The fish would swim away
And if Zeus left the mountains
To whom would we pray
The world would be a disaster
Without the gods in our lives
Where would we find the answer
To what happens when we die

But you now say you want to leave
You want to break away
And there is nothing I can do
That will make you stay
You won’t go with a god
Go with a god

Do you think I deceive you?
Do you think this is all a myth?
Are you having a break through?
Or are you falling into an abyss?

You won’t go with a god
Go with a god
You won’t go with a god
Go with a god

I’ll Destroy Everything (Ares’ Song)

Black sheep
That’s what they all call me
Outcast
A god without a heart
I’m hated
No one really loves me
They all seem to snub me
But I don’t feel alone

Cause I believe
That this world is for me
And if you disagree
I’ll destroy everything

Testy
You best not make me angry
My vengeance
Slaughters those that do
do do do
I’m called a coward
By a bunch of haters
Blind to a true crusader
They choose to live a lie

Cause I believe
That this world is for me
And if you disagree
I’ll destroy everything

War
Violence feeds my soul
War
My hatred can’t be controlled
War
The battle has just begun
Can’t you hear the drums?

Cause I believe
That this world is for me
And if you disagree
I’ll destroy everything

I’ll burn it down
I’ll burn it down
