Track Name: Oh Yes You Will!!! (Zeus' Song)
Ahhhh..

You will call me high and mighty
And you will do what I say
Oh yes you will!!
Oh yes you will!!
Oh yeah you will!!

You will learn to bow before me
And you will let me have my way
Oh yes you will!!
Oh yes you will!!
And you should be afraid of what I can do
Your just a little spec of dust in the palm of my hand

Sometimes people wanna doubt me
Some say I'm not the only one
Oh yes they do
Oh yes they do
They foolishly do

Some want to create a savior
And others worship the sun
Oh yes they do
Oh yes they do
But soon they'll be afraid of what I can do
When I pour out my wrath upon them those heathens will drown

I am the god of every god, I am Zeus that's my name
Up in the sky, looking down I keep an eye on my domain
Planet Earth down below, I decide who lives and dies
I spare the ones who genuflect, go out and proselytize

Tell the world

Ahhhh..
I rule everything
Ahhhh..
I rule everything
Ahhhh..
I rule everything
Ahhhh..
I rule everything
Track Name: Let Me Heal You (Apollo's Song)
If you've got aches and pains
broken bones that leave you constrained
If you suffer from a disease
Well come on over and let me give you some relief

Let me heal you
Let me heal you
Let me get my healing hands on you
Let me heal you
Let me heal you
Take a sip of this and you'll be cured

Dr. Robert, what a phony, I'm the man you need
I've got everything you want and yes I take credit card

Science can only do so much
What you need is a healing touch
All of your pains will be released
Well come on over and let me experiment..

I mean
Let me heal you
Let me heal you
Let me get my healing hands on you
Let me heal you
Let me heal you
Take a sip of this and you'll be cured

Let me heal you
Let me heal you
Let me get my healing hands on you
Let me heal you
Let me heal you
Take a sip of this and you'll be cured

Dr. Robert, what a phony, I'm the man you need
I've got everything you want and yes I take credit card
Track Name: Young Lovers for Every Occasion (Aphrodite's Song)
I'm really not the type
To to be alone on a Friday night
I need
I need constant attention
I'm not looking for the one
One is not enough
I need I need a dozen or more
I'm a libertine, that will not be ignored

I keep lovers for every occasion
To satisfy my every desire
I've got them in heavy rotation
So they can do all that I require
Eternal life needs a little distraction
And sometimes I need to feel human
Tonight I'm adding to my collection
Young lovers for every occasion

When you're out there on your own
You don’t want to feel alone
And I don't I don't want to be alone
Some people need their space
They don't want to suffocate
They push you away when you want to get close
So I keep my distance and spread my love around

I keep lovers for every occasion
To satisfy my every desire
I've got them in heavy rotation
So they can do all that I require
Eternal life needs a little distraction
And sometimes I need to feel human
Tonight I'm adding to my collection
Young lovers for every occasion

One for the day
And two for the night
Three to my left
And four to my right

I keep lovers for every occasion
To satisfy my every desire
I've got them in heavy rotation
So they can do all that I require
Eternal life needs a little distraction
And sometimes I need to feel human
Tonight I'm adding to my collection
Young lovers for every occasion

I've got
Young lovers for every occasion
I've got
Young lovers for every occasion
Track Name: Life is Better at Home (Hestia's Song)
You feel safe inside
Lying by a fireplace
Where you can hide
Far away from everything

Out there in the world people can abuse you
Take all that you've earned and try to undo you

So rest a while
In a castle made of blankets you feel
Like a child
Close your eyes and fall asleep

It's a great escape that relieves your sorrow
Isolate yourself to avoid tomorrow
Because you, oh you, you are home

Home
Where you should be
Deep in a slumber
Away in a dream
No one will hurt you
They can't even try
Life is better at home

When you arise
Reality sets back in and you're
Paralyzed
Scared to leave the fireside

Out there in the world people can abuse you
Take all that you've earned and try to undo you
But you, oh you, you are home

Home
Where you should be
Deep in a slumber
Away in a dream
No one will hurt you
They can't even try
Life is better at home
Track Name: 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
Track Name: 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 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

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
Track Name: 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
Track Name: 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
Track Name: 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
Track Name: 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
Track Name: 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
Track Name: I've Missed the Boat (Poseidon's Song)
Late nights
With all my friends enjoying life
Thinking
The good times would never end
We had a lot of fun

Lately
It seems like the party is winding down
Friendship
Makes me feel stranded at sea
Everyone's moving on
And they don't have time for me

I've missed the boat
And it feels so lonely
Everyone has settled down
But I don't want to give it up

Because the life we once held dearly
Is the life I want to lead

Longing
For lovers that longed to be near to me
Wanting
Nothing more than a kiss
Love was a simple game

Sinking
Deep into currents I've never known
Mourning
The life that I thought we would live
It's time to let it go
Because life has more to give

I've missed the boat
And it feels so lonely
Everyone has settled down
But I don't want to give it up
Because the life we once held dearly
Is the life I want to lead
And it feels so incomplete
Without a strong family
