Kill it. Like you mean it. Off with it's head.
Make it bleed. Don't lose speed. Make sure it's dead.
Drive off to Hades in the dead of night, swinging your sword, holding your fists high.
Pull back the queen, take her to her home. Then the holy plants will grow.
Twelve horses rumbling, blowing holy smoke, pulled me away before Hades awoke.
Oh I bet you didn't even see me. You must be blind. I stole your queen away. Left only smoke behind.
"I'll have my dagger in you before the winter comes. I'll twist it around like the gorgon's tongue.
I'll have your horses tear you apart, but I'll keep your heart."
Silver tongue priestess don't waste your time. I'll be leaving come autumn time.
Twelve horses rumbling, blowing holy smoke, pulled me away before you awoke.
