Lyrics adapted from Book IX of the Odyssey by Homer, as translated by Samuel Butler

lyrics

Driven thence
By foul winds
Nine days upon the sea

Driven thence
We reached their land
That take a flower for their feast

They raised no sword
They did not run
Gave lotus flower and bade us eat

Can't remember hearth or home
Don't know my name or where I've been

No resistance to nonexistence
I take the flower for my feast

That nectar
Cleared our eyes
So rare and so sweet

Made no return
We sent no word
Of our bloodless defeat

Forced and fast, we bitter wept
Only the flower we seek

Heathens boarded to drag us home
Wailed as their oars smote the sea

This bliss fills me
This bliss kills me

Open my eyes
Open my mind's eye
Open my mind
My mind dies

My mind dies
