Swan Upon Leda Lyrics

[Verse 1]

A husband waits outside

A crying child pushes a child into the night

She was told he would come this time


Without leaving so much 

as a feather behind

To enact, at last, 

the perfect plan

One more sweet boy to 

be butchered by man


[Chorus]

But the gateway to the world

Was still outside the reach of him

Would never belong to angels


Had never belonged to man

The swan upon Leda

Empire upon Jerusalem


[Verse 2]

A grandmother smuggling meds

Past where the god child-soldier, 

Setanta, stood dead

Our graceful turner of heads


Weaves through the checkpoints 

like a needle and thread

Someone's frightened boy waves her on

She offers a mother's 

smile and soon, she's gone

[Chorus]

The gateway to the world

The gun in a trembling hand

Where nature unmakes the boundary


The pillar of myth still stands

The swan upon Leda

Occupier upon ancient land


[Outro]

The gateway to the world

Was still outside the reach of him

Would never belong to angels

Had never belonged to men
