A focused voice reigns down like a firestorm
you know what you must do
venture down into the underworld to prove that love is true

Eurydice don't follow me
the world has grown so cold
Eurydice don't follow me
my love I'm losing hold

if my voice won't move the Ferrymen
on my affections alone i'll cross
then stare into the eyes of death eternal
no matter what the cost

Eurydice don't follow me
the world has grown so cold
Eurydice don't follow me
my love I'm losing hold

sacrifices and the light
that leads me here through this night
as vision breaks the world grows dim
persephone argue my case to him
i'll take his word no looking back
the bridge we cross i will not look
and her footsteps i do not hear
is she far behind me or standing near?

Eurydice don't follow me
the world has grown so cold
Eurydice don't follow me
my love I'm losing hold

Eurydice don't follow me
now that my dreams turn black
Eurydice don't follow me
there'll be no looking back

    General CommentGreat song, obviously based the story of Orpheus descending into the Underworld to rescue his belovèd, Eurydice. Orpheus was a singer and musician, hence "if my voice won't move the ferryman", the ferryman of the river Styx, which led to the land of the dead, was Charon, who would not let people cross for free...Orpheus convinced him with song.
    "Persephone argued my case to him"...Persephone was the wife of Hades. After playing his sad song, Persephone was so moved that she convinced Hades to give him a chance. So he made a deal that he could take Eurydice back to the land of the living as long as he did not look back at her until they made it to the entrance to the world above. Orpheus, however, became paranoid that Hades had fooled him, as he could not hear Eurydice's footsteps, and looked back right before he made it to the upper world, only to see Eurydice being taken away from him because of his distrust in Hades' word. Very powerful story, and the Crüxshadows did an excellant job of telling it in song.
