[Theme: Odysseus / Greece]

Odysseus
Fought in Troja to bring back Helena
Built the conning horse of wood
To strike the fortress for Athena
On the journey back, adventures encountered, for 20 years

Resisting temptations of the sirens
And creatures of pure evil
Hurricanes sent king of the gods Zeus,
To drown him into dark hell
Guided by the ocean goddess, he survived until the end

He cursed into the sky, end this Odyssey
What's this evil spell that was laid on me

He cursed into the sky, he cursed into the sky
End this Odyssey
What's this evil spell that was laid on me

He cursed into the sky, end this Odyssey
What's this evil spell that was laid on me

Adventures for 20 years
The hero reached his domain
Penelope waited for so long there
With arrows he ended the pain

[STORY:]

[Odysseus:]

Odysseus ruled over Ithaca,
An island on the west
Coast of Greece, and was a visitor
Of amazing unknown lands.
He built the wooden Trojan horse to
Strike down the enemies fortress.
The Odyssey relates his long,
Excessive expedition to return home from Troy after
Twenty years of absence.
During this time his look changed drastically,
So nobody but his dog recognised him anymore.
