Mythic the Musical - It's a Myth Lyrics


APHRODITE:
At the dawn

WOMEN:
At the dawn

DEMETER:
The Titans ruled the world

HADES:
They had it good

WOMEN:
It was good

ZEUS:
Their lives were ideal
With no reason to feel
There was anything threatening their realm

WOMEN:
Until
They had kids

PERSEPHONE:
Here's how it always goes

GODS:
You're sure you're gonna raise your kids right
They're never gonna think you're uptight
You'll never give them cause for a fight
They're never gonna act out of spite
Out of spite

You think that as they reach adulthood
Life won't become some huge ordeal

DEMETER:
Think again that kinda kid isn't real

GODS:
It's a myth
You're hoping for a fantasy
It's a fable
It's a myth
Stop thinking that your family
Is stable
It's a myth
Cause the moment of their birth [?]
Is never off the table
We've learned from ancient lore
Family is love and war

MEN:
The Titans had so many kids

WOMEN:
Holy crap
The Titans had so many kids

FEMALE GOD:
One was called

MALE GOD:
Zeus

GODS:
Yeah he might be of use

FEMALE GOD:
And grew up next door to Demeter

DEMETER:
Hey!

WOMEN:
And hung out with his main man Hades

HADES:
'Sup ladies!

MEN:
The Titans loved their kids but ooh

WOMEN:
It got harder as they grew into teenagers

MEN:
These Olympian kids

WOMEN:
These Olympian kids

GODS:
Got defiant like teenagers do
The Olympian kids got older
The Olympian kids got bolder
The Olympian kids got colder
Then bam

WOMEN:
These children of the Titans wrote their requiem

MEN:
They overthrew their parents then they murdered them

GODS:
For real they fucking murdered them

WOMEN:
Now their lives were untroubled and calm

MEN:
Until

GODS:
They had kids
The story
The story of Persephone
The story of Persephone
The story of Persephone

PERSEPHONE:
Yeah I'm Persephone
Known as Demeter's daughter
I'm like her shadow
Forgive me if I seethe
I known she cares for me
But it's like I'm underwater
I can't breathe
I can't breathe
I can't breathe
I can't breathe
Ahhh
Ahhh
Ahhh
I feel a change at hand
Ahhh
Ahhh
My mum will have to understand

GODS:
You think that's a thing that mother's do but
It's a myth
Your parents' are a mystery
It's elusive

PERSEPHONE:
I can't breathe!

GODS:
It's a myth
Changing minds are literally
Exclusive

PERSEPHONE:
I can't breathe!

GODS:
It's a myth
Even though they never mean to be
Families are so intrusive
Try to bring your kids up right
Try to grow them up without a fight
But ever since the dawn of man
Yes, ever since the world began
But when this high and godly plan
Set like a monolith
Fracturing kin and kith

PERSEPHONE:
You think you and your mum will be fine

GODS:
But it's a myth
