Lyrics for Pandora's Box (2012)


In Greek mythology, Pandora was the first woman on Earth. Zeus ordered Hephaestus, the god of craftsmanship, to create her; and he did so using water & earth. The gods endowed her with many gifts: Athena clothed her while Aphrodite gave her beauty... and Hermes' gift was speech.

And so it was, that when Prometheus stole the secret of fire from heaven, Zeus took vengeance - by presenting Pandora to Epimetheus, Prometheus' brother. With her, Pandora had a beautiful container she had been given - and she was NOT to open it, under any circumstance.

Of course, Pandora was impelled by her curiosity, and so she opened it. In an instant, a plethora of spirits (evils which had been trapped therein) had escaped - and they quickly spread over all the earth. Pandora hastened to close the container, but in that mere fraction of time the lid had been lifted, every single spirit had already escaped... except for one thing still laying at the bottom.

The one thing which remained, soft and still...

was the angel of Hope.

Verse 1

Don't try to run from it, don't try to hide...
We all make mistakes, my friend - that's just part of life!

It's in how we move on from our wrongs in the steps that lay still ahead;
The past is behind, just where it belongs - just learn from it and carry on, instead!

Dichotomic perspectives: each one comes to life!
It's only your motives that cause you to fail... or, to thrive!


The easiest way towards relief
is to reach out and help another
climb up and out of a hole with their grief,
and see the future keep getting brighter and brighter!

Just like the warming glow of the sun..! (yeah!)
It's just like the light coming down from the sun!

...said to me as i passed another perspective on a bridge while heading in the opposite direction, in this 'ole box we live in:

(...oh, didn't you know? it's how EVERYTHING grows!)

Verse 2

Those evils of myth, released to the earth: they're closer to home than one might conceive!
Everything points to intent; now THERE's some worth!

HOPE can always be seen in those who are selfless; do not be deceived!

It's in how we treat others all around, as the pathways of our lives intersect;
That the evils - or HOPE - can be found! Which "spirits" in you, will others detect?

Dichotomic perspectives: within you and i!
Be one who forgives, and see other perspectives come alive...!

(repeat chorus)
