Hymn to Zagreus

from Hades: Original Soundtrack by Darren Korb



Of Zagreus, oh muse
Slayer of hydras
First of his name

Of Zeus as a serpent
In spite of Queen Hera
Zagreus came

To shreds by the Titans
Devoured in pieces
From his heart aflame

The seed
Of Dionysus grew
The God of wine and feast anew
To live
At home on Olympus
Never presuming
His origins true

Of thunder and lightning
Struck down the Titans
Burned into sand

From out of the ashes
Born of the Titans
The mortals did stand

To live
The model of the gods
At once divine and further flawed
In twain
The blood of immortals
Of Zagreus ending
It flows in their veins

The prince
Under the mortal ring
Prisoner to his king
Never to leave

Endlessly toiling
Doomed to remain
Endlessly toiling
Doomed to remain


from Hades: Original Soundtrack, released September 18, 2020
