lyrics

(The conch bellows; the mythical creature wails it's awful cry. The angry Vulcan gods from below, beat they rhythms of battle upon their giant drum; beating in time to the sobs of the woeful God of Thunder who, standing up on a cliff overlooking the very edge of the word, laments the loss of his love with the mortal slave girl - whom he had battled passionately for, in the most recent of conflicts with the trickster god Loki - Besides which, confronting his fearsome father, Odin, before an audience of all those who resides deep within the halls of Valhalla, high above the Earth in the ancient city of Asgard. The angels of Valhalla perform their timeless number, perhaps soothing the great, saddened hero. And, well, one of his hammer? Is it of no consequence that his most trusted companion - lo, the sadness of the slave girl - must forever only be that of a tool of vengeance? Does the lord of the nighttime sky have a prayer? Hear his agony. But perhaps from a distance)

I scream from the mountaintops
I want love
Olympus! Olympus!

I am the Mighty God of Thunder
I raise my mighty hammer, and I shake my weary head
It is a very awful fate
(Olympus was his name)

I scream from the mountaintops
I want love
Olympus! Olympus!

And I hover above the planet Earth
Flying through the sky, looking to the ground below
I am just a sad and lonely superhero
(Olympus was his name)
