Prometheus - Lyrics

I am a Titan,
personified and glorified inside your mythologies
to create and enlighten
In the theogony a challenger of greatness,
comparable to Milton's version of Satan,
creator of man by means of clay,
as I built and I molded a new life took shape,
and that new life was met with greed,
so I stole god's fire so all of humankind could see
and now I'm tortured, condemned, I was cast out,
I threw a rock, at god's great glass house,
and it shattered 'cause without being ruled by a greedy god
man's intelligence surely gew,
men could achieve their rightful place
sitting with the gods instead being a slave race,
so here I am to steal the fire again,
and put it back in its rightful place in the hands of men

I am a man among men - and a God among Gods
I am the sin among sinners - rising up against the odds
I am the cause and effect, revolution is my name
Call me Prometheus and the fire I now reclaim

What if god was an archetype
a way to say that to know darkness you must know light
what if Lucifer was one in the same
after all light bearer is the translation of his name,
what if I told you that man was both,
and he only lost hope when his will was broke
and he only lost grace when his knees hit ground
but when he got back up it was the truth that man found
and that proof was found in music -
I share the fire but that don't mean you'll use it,
don't be useless instead be ruthless,
in pursuit of the truth if the truth ain't fruitless
never be another slave to a falsehood
I've seen the result and it's not good,
so here I am to steal the fire again
and put it back in its rightful place in the hands of men
I am the muse, inspiration's foundations,
you can't love god if you don't love Satan,
you can't hate man without hating yourself,
and you can't be poor if you've never known wealth,
bless yourself when you test yourself
no rest can help ya health when dissecting self
by dissection I'm talking direction
your mind is the map broken down into many sections
in your mind there is no need for vestments
because the answer is made by perception,
what's perception, a look and the view
of an opinion or reason
but that don't always make it truth,
we're one in the same with god and the devil
we're all on search, evolution, the next level,
so here I am to steal the fire again
and put it back in its rightful place in the hands of men
