Lyrics

Phaeton?s Fall   Lyrics by Elizabeth Auzan


Pride goes before a fall
This is the law that rules us all

Phaeton's Dad was powerful and liked
Helios the Sun God, Lord of daylight.
Phaeton thought HE was pretty cool too.
Acting like a brat, behaving like a fool

Hubris, oh, hubris.
Beware of Nemesis
She brings retribution
There is no absolution
Pride goes before a fall
This is the law that rules us all

Phaeton's pride was way over the top
Arrogant and bold, couldn't be stopped
Drove his dad's chariot across the skies
Setting fire to Earth, destroying human lives

Mighty Zeus a great thunderbolt hurled
Phaeton condemned to the underworld
Helios wept for his only son
Wayward boy, now lost, unloved by anyone

Hubris, oh, hubris.
Beware of Nemesis
She brings retribution
There is no absolution
Pride goes before a fall
This is the law that rules us all

Too many Phaetons throughout history
Too many Phaetons in our world today
Hearts made of granite
Wreaking havoc o'er the planet
How long before it's our turn
On the Bonfire of Vanities to burn?

Hubris, oh, hubris.
Beware of Nemesis
She brings retribution
There is no absolution
Pride goes before a fall
This is the law that rules us all

Pride goes before a fall
This is the law that rules us all
