lyrics

(Chorus)
Smoke billows from the Swisher as the clouds roll by
Layin' on this hallowed ground underneath the grey skies
Rain could fall at any moment, no doubt that it might
Layin' on this hallowed ground underneath the grey skies
Smoke billows from the Swisher as the clouds roll by
Layin' on this hallowed ground underneath the grey skies
Rain could fall at any moment, no doubt that it might
Layin' on this hallowed ground underneath the grey skies

(Verse)
I feel it in the air, the odd sense that someone's near
Wonderin' who the fuck God sent to come in here
Typically I'm in my swamp, yellin' til the ops run in fear
Looked up and saw Athena, I was shocked, at once unprepared
What the fuck you want from me, I blurted, what's the purpose
Of your visit from the Heavens down to Mortal Earth? It's
A bit distractin' seein' you n' I know that I'm bein' rude
But I'm a fuckin' ogre, so what do you see in dude?
She replied, demeanor calm, as she gripped me by the arm
"Matt, I sense resentment, but you won't let me see what's wrong"
See what's wrong? See my life, every day I try n' fail
She squeezes tighter, "without the fight n' struggle, why prevail?"
Why prevail? Shit, that's a question that I've never asked
"Happiness is within yourself if you could just forget the past"
Now hold on a second, I can't abandon experience
She shook her head n' sighed, acted like I wasn't hearin' shit

(Chorus)
Smoke billows from the Swisher as the clouds roll by
Layin' on this hallowed ground underneath the grey skies
Rain could fall at any moment, no doubt that it might
Layin' on this hallowed ground underneath the grey skies
Smoke billows from the Swisher as the clouds roll by
Layin' on this hallowed ground underneath the grey skies
Rain could fall at any moment, no doubt that it might
Layin' on this hallowed ground underneath the grey skies

(Verse)
Athena hits me with a steely gaze, "You need to understand
Life is what you make it, you've run the course with your other plans.
You can come back to the world or remain withdrawn from it
But without lovin' yourself you'll never mount the strong summons"
Who the fuck could love a beast? I stay away for everybody's sake
If it ain't talkin' shit then I've got nothin' in common to say
So I aim for the best target n' ostracize myself
From everyone around me who's ever offered help
Your divinity simply doesn't make a difference to me
To be honest I'm surprised you'd even listen to me
I haven't held a conversation this long since I absconded
She shrugged n' said "despite your loneliness, at least you're honest;
I came down from Olympus to make sure that you're safe
There's not too many Mortals who dare enter this space.
I'm here to let you know despite it all, you're a survivor
But this place is your own prison, your decision if you're a lifer."
