Few thousand years ago, on the island of Calypso
here begins our tale of Ulysses, the warrior
he fought the Trojan war, he heard the giant’s roar
and now he sails his ship across the seas
and he went down to the underworld, the reals of the shadows
where evil spirits fly and horror takes shape
too many people cried, too many died
but still they never left this side

CHORUS

So beware, there’s a danger in the air
they’re flying on the wind
the end is in high, now you and I will die
deny: the cry of the sirens
the sirens
he sailed across the seas, never got down on his knees
let it be known, he’s always been the one to lead

save me, save me voices everywhere
save me, save me it’s more than I can bare
get me to the shore, I just can’t take no more
I’ve never felt this way before

CHORUS

Their visions were seen
in the air
their voices were heard
driving them to despair

‘Bout 20 years, had passed since he’d been gone
and all that he found was misery
he swore revenge, for all the bad they had done
until his restless soul could finally be free

CHORUS

He sailed across the seas, never got down on his knees
let it be known, he’s always been the one to lead

he sailed the seas
never got down on his knees

    General CommentOK, this one seems pretty straight forward, doesn't it? It's a part of the Ilias and Exodus by Homer, like a lot of 80's rock and metal got their inspiration from old Greek and Roman literature.
