"Ambrosia" as written by and Shawn/thompson Milke....
A touch of poison seals my fate
The dawn echoes the night with my glory...the sun himself honors me

Once king of roses,now lord of gold
The Gods themselves envy my hand
Blessed with the gift of gilded touch
Fate wields its knife to cut the thread

I curse the day my dream became my descent suddenly I long for you,my only love

In my perfection I have no want
Yet eyes still glint with greed untold
A folly as fatal as sin has now become the end of me

I curse the day my dream became my descent suddenly I long for you,my only love

Have I not earned this, this gift of beauty within?
How selfish were the Gods to keep their riches from my rightful treasure?
I truly have become one of them...my fatal flaw

Oh yeah! I've got her hook,line, and sinker!
Thanks to me, she's her own new necklace! now she's good as gold!

I curse the day my dream became my descent suddenly I long for you,my only love...

Cut the thread...

    General CommentIsn't it weird how they use King Midas in ambrosia" and the myth about Troya and Helen's beauty in "The Thisrd Temptation of Paris" ?? None of the new bands really sings about more that htbreak and self-harm anymore lol [no offence to any other band !!]

    Love this song .. I hope they keep it up like this :]

    General CommentI will probably cause more questions than answers but ambrosia is the food of the gods

    King midas when tried to eat converted the food into gold when it touched his lips

    heres what wiki has to say;

    ¨In ancient Greek mythology, ambrosia is sometimes the food, sometimes the drink, of the gods, often depicted as conferring ageless immortality upon whoever consumes it. It was brought to the gods in Olympus by doves (Odyssey xii.62), so may have been thought of in the Homeric tradition as a kind of divine exhalation of the Earth.

    Ambrosia is very closely related to the gods' other form of sustenance, nectar. The two terms may not have originally been distinguished;[1] though in Homer's poems nectar is the drink and ambrosia the food of the gods; it was with ambrosia Hera "cleansed all defilement from her lovely flesh" (Iliad xiv.170), and with ambrosia Athena prepared Penelope in her sleep (Odyssey xviii.188ff) so that when she appeared for the final time before her suitors, the effect of the years had been stripped away and they were inflamed at the sight of her. On the other hand, in Alcman, nectar is the food, and in Sappho (fragment 45) and Anaxandrides,[2] ambrosia is the drink. When a character in Aristophanes' Knights says, "I dreamed the goddess poured ambrosia over your head– out of a ladle", the homely and realistic ladle brings the ineffable moment to ground with a thump.¨

    General CommentAhh, another tale I am fond of...

    King Midas, a ruler known for his unsurpassed rose garden, finds a drunken, passed out Silenus (foster father of Dionysus). After taking him home, Dionysus tells King Midas he may have anything he wants in reward.

    Midas wishes for anything he touches to become gold. However, this becomes a curse, after realizing he cannot eat, as food turns to gold as soon as it touches his lips. He ends up touching his daughter, turning her to gold.

    I enjoy this song greatly, especially the new music video.
