Mark Lenover – Orpheus lyrics

She was the picture of beauty and grace
He bottled her magic and fixed her in place
His music was written all over her face

He mined her perfection and chipped it away,
Reducing his lover to poems and paint
As his gaze grew distorted his subject grew faint

Howling, Eurydice covers her face
As we carry her off to the vanishing place
Shuddering, Orpheus opens his eyes
A look nullifies her,
He blinks and it flies her
Away'

His tributes were clumsy and tainted by lust
Her features were blunted and cold to the touch
She covered his failures with lipstick and blush

He'd harvest the melodies caught in her throat
He'd belch out the rhythm and raise her a toast
Of all his abortions, he loved her the most

Howling, Eurydice covers her face
As we carry her off to the vanishing place
Shuddering, Orpheus opens his eyes
A look nullifies her,
He blinks and it flies her
Away'
