The Blacksmith

Subject: Hephaestus, Music by Joe Dean. Lyrics and vocals by Greg Dean

Working late again
Lit by the fires of volcanoes beneath the earth
And though my body’s lame
My hands work possessed by the furies they’ve had since birth
Because on the day I was born
I was thrown from a mountain top

I fell for days
And days

You know my woman’s gone
What can you do when you lose to a stronger man
And though I’m underground
It still feels like
I’m still falling down

For days
And days

In the darkness
In the coldness I feel
That I’m beating time here
While I’m beating the steel

It feels like
I’m still falling down
For days
And days
And days
And days
And days
