A dice within a fable
Showing the sides of man
Cards upon a gambling table
Condemned by Pan
Why’d you leave the stable?
How fast you ran!
Into foolish bets you were ever unable to cash in
From the pastures of Olympus
You have descended onto the gates of Caesar’s Palace
I guess you took the under on destiny
For a chance to win mortality
And a season with Persephone
