Apollo's Toys

VERSE 1

 

Back when it all began

I fell in love with superman

Apollo went bowling

across the universe

 

Playing just to entertain

The gods of childhood reigned

Spun me down that neighborhood lane

They called the milky way

 

I was born floating on a school day

Never scored a strike

too much loneliness to spare

 

As Apollo hurled the earth

Held on tight but I flew off

Someone stole my gravity

as we took down the moon

 

CHORUS

 

High up on Mount Olympus

Who would ever guess

They’re up there laughing

As we cry trying to get out of this mess

We are just toys

 

VERSE 2

 

Dancing on a thundercloud

The goddesses all rocked the crowd

Stood unseen in velvet green

lonesome sweet sixteen

 

Aphrodite prayed with me

We worshipped teenage deities

Layed in bed making mix tapes

Brushed my hair in search of heart-ache

CHORUS

 

High up on Mount Olympus

Who would ever guess

They’re up there laughing

As we cry trying to get out of this mess

 

BRIDGE

 

High on illusion

We climbed up that mountain

Lusting life immortal

Beyond the rainbow’s end

In Search of fame and fortune

 

Well at least could they toss down a star?

 

Verse 3

 

Pandora bought a new TV

She sat down to watch with me

Caught her curiosity, fell deep inside a dream

 

I got a job collecting sins

From all the places I’d ever been

While brother jammed electric guitar

In his room he was a superstar

(but he became a doctor instead)

 

CHORUS

 

High up on Mount Olympus

Who would ever guess

They’re up there laughing

As we cry trying to get out of this mess

 

Down here on planet earth

The gods are deep in debt

For those above are born below

As minds of men pretend

 

The jokes on them

Ooh ooh, the jokes on them
