Midas

about

Greed and hunger for power can make us lose our humanity. Inspired by the Greek myth of King Midas, as well as by our present day leaders, the song explores the ways in which false prophets lead us into a mire from which it’s difficult to extricate ourselves. In this case, the grief is collective and only truth, honesty and love can lead the way out.

lyrics

Oh, Midas, you’re so sweet
Show me how you conquer it
All these wasted battles under your heavy belt
Oh, Midas, such sweet sweet lies
Turning into landmines
With your golden touch
There’s not much room for love

I heard them whisper under a crescent moon
The reeds are dancing, they twist as we burn
Will we start over once you’ve had your fun
The earth is turning but its heart is numb

What have we lost in the rain?
Has it been worth what we’ve gained?
Where do we go from here?
When everything is so unclear


Oh Midas, what a game
you’ve dragged us in with all your blame
Even gold can melt under the sun
Oh Midas, what mighty ears
You can’t make them disappear
One way or another the world will find out

I heard them whisper under a crescent moon
The reeds are dancing, they twist as we burn
Will we start over once you’ve had your fun
The earth is turning but its heart is numb

What have we lost in the rain?
Has it been worth what we’ve gained?
Where do we go from here?
When everything is so unclear
