Lyrics

Pandora: A Theodicy      Lyrics by Elizabeth Auzan


Pity poor, unwitting Pandora.
From her jar she unleashed trouble and sorrow
The archetype of the foolish female.
Eve in the Garden tempted by the snake.
Someone to point fingers at, someone to taunt
Cos it's always somebody else's fault

Fashioned by Zeus in his ire At Prometheus
Who had given the mortals fire
Pandora, the all-gifted
Was made by malevolence Her destiny was twisted

Someone to point fingers at, someone to taunt
Cos it's always somebody else's fault


Pandora let loose all Hell. Hard labour and death
Countless evils now fly pell-mell
Follow them on your news feed The anti-social media
Harbour, foster needs and greed

Someone to point fingers at, someone to taunt
Cos it's always somebody else's fault

So easy to judge in hindsight
Everybody's convinced they're right
The truth, the whole truth, nothing but, we shriek
But with the truth we play Hide and Seek

Pity poor, unwitting Pandora
From her jar, she unleashed trouble and sorrow
The archetype of the foolish female.
Eve in the Garden tempted by the snake.
Someone to point fingers at, someone to taunt
Cos it's always somebody else's fault
