The hand creates
And chiseled stone
Rises from beneath the striking
Hidden here below the fracture
The beautiful is corporal
The beautiful is real

I write these dreams
To make this world
Something more
Than hate and greed
I cast a vision
To change the tides
To give this world
What I have seen
Find the fate within the stone

The Cyphered dreams
Of love enduring
No winds shall come
To move this stone
For here I plant
My gift to you
A monument
Within the mind
The stone is breathing
The heart is beating
And my soul is present
In every word...
Galatea lives
And she will love you
While angels comfort
Should you fall...

    General CommentObviously about Pygmalion. He doesn't like "real women" because they prostitute themselves, so he creates his ideal woman out of stone (Galatea). He falls in love with the statue, and prays to aphrodite, who takes pity on him and turns Galatea into a real woman. Galatea and Pygmalion get married and have a kid.

    General CommentNot quite the story, but close enough I suppose. Pygmalion was a sculptor who refused to marry, so the women of his village prayed to Aphrodite to force him to marry. Aphrodite visited him, and he fell in love with HER, so he made a deal with her. He would make one final statue and after that, he'd marry. He carved a statue of Aphrodite, and Aphrodite realized he was in love with her, so she turned him to stone as well so he could be with Galatea (the statue).
