lyrics

Prayers to the Earth Shaker are heard
Poseidon!
A great white bull, rushes out of the waves
Minos
KING MINOS!
Is charged to sacrifice
but deception and redemption
are a coin of two sides

Pasiphae, paid the price
raped by the bull and cast aside
Mutant seed germinating
she gives birth to a demon child!
Minotaur, grotesque and strong
with the head of a bull, and the body of a man

Any who faced him, would be gored and torn in two
A prison of terrible construct, would be built

Daedalus , the architect
forced to build the Labyrinth
a maze of artistic foresight
a complicated chamber
that with it's tangled windings
perplexed the outward way

But none can know this dark secret
BETRAYAL!
Daedalus is cast, into his own maze
Minos
KING MINOS!
released the Minotaur
but Icarus's wings
spare Daedalus' soul
Desperation of the king
cost him his life King Minos died
But his descent into the underworld
lead not to misery
Minos, was granted an auspicious role
amongst Hades' trusted men

JUDGE OF THE DEAD
passer of fate
JUDGE OF THE DEAD
adjudicator of hell
JUDGE OF THE DEAD
passer of fate
JUDGE OF THE DEAD
adjudicator of hell

King Minos proved his worth to the Gods
Freed from the shackles, of mortality
Infinite power, at his fingertips
Infinite souls, to condemn

JUDGE OF THE DEAD
passer of fate
JUDGE OF THE DEAD
adjudicator of hell
JUDGE OF THE DEAD
passer of fate
JUDGE OF THE DEAD
