Oedipus Rex

This song is by Power Crue and appears on the album Wreck The Eternal Tyranny (2011).

Power corrupts, the only son
Brought up in hate, shaped up by fate
Would slay the father, mingle with the mother
Knowledge that came, is all too late

My curse, my life
My throne, of lies

Gazing upon Hades, with gouged-out my eyes
Oedipus Rex
Forever falling, in Tartarus's vortex
Oedipus Rex

To kill and be king, the weight of the crown
Resting too heavy, upon my brow
Omens foretold, my journey to Thebes
I'm flying high, on Ηubris's wings

My curse, my life
My throne, of lies

Gazing upon Hades...
