Lyrics

Inside Looking Out
Lyrics by Elizabeth Auzan


In times of yore, the infant Minotaur
Half-bull, half-man, Asterion
On the isle of Crete, could be seen at play
Nursed by his mother PasiphaŽ

But as he grew, ferocious he became
More bull than man, the Minotaur
Was banished to a prison labyrinth
His tragic destiny about to begin


My labyrinth, my labyrinth
Anyone can enter but no-one comes in
Except to kill, to make me conform
To what they think should be the norm
I'm trapped inside, looking out
Wondering what this is all about
Trapped inside, Trapped inside
But looking out. Won't you come in?


King Minos so hated the Minotaur
He set a price upon his head
Theseus vowed the creature he would slay
Counting on the love of Ariadne

Daedalus's labyrinth had no doors
But none who entered did return
Theseus unravelled Ariadne's thread
With his bare hands laid the Minotaur dead


My labyrinth, my labyrinth
Anyone can enter but no-one comes in
Except to kill, to make me conform
To what they think should be the norm
I?m trapped inside, looking out
Wondering what this is all about
Trapped inside, Trapped inside
But looking out. Won't you come in?


Monster or martyr the Minotaur?
Prison or home the labyrinth?
Myths are reversible like fairy tales
Perception, perspective tip the scales
