Clyteamnestra
drown me in the bath tub
slash my throat while
I dye the water red
I came back, I came back from a war
sieged the mighty gates of Troy
and was blown of course
a witch in, a witch in royal clothes
slipped her way onto the throne
a seat of gold
Aegisthus, Aegisthus, my sweetest friend
betrayal is the first means to and end
I forsook, I forsook Cassandra seer
oh, I should have listened

my Cassandra cast away
the witch queen sliced her heart in half
I yearn for Achilles' place
to meet him face to face
at the gates of Hades
Cerberus is fast asleep
I've no place to be
like love on a sliding hill
it will always follow me
the netherworld is calling to me

oh, my Cassandra cast away
I'm sure I've lost her to the sea
the netherworld is calling to me
oh, I've no place to be
like a lost soul
I yearn for Achilles' place
to meet him face to face
at the gates of Hades
Cerberus is fast asleep
the netherworld is calling to me

Clytaemnestra
I'm not anxious, you'll soon be dead
