lyrics

She boasted about her seeds o’ fairness
That filled the bottle of her life’s pride and consciousness
Seven sons and seven daughters her doughty heritage
Blessed under a royal veil covering all her needs

She decreed: “I am bonifate! Much more blessed as Leto is!
Tantalus daughter hail! I am divine!”
Her delirium forced Leto to incite Apollo
And Artemis to rage and vengeable wrath

“Shine on and kill, with all your might
Die is her children dew, mourning tears her price
Make her see all ‘em dead, doom her to wail
Therewithal un-ended pain to jar upon her life”

Artemis slew the females and Apollo chas’d the males
Upon the Mount Kynthus they all tasted his arrows’ nails
Ismenos the first-born fell lifeless with an arrow from above
Eft-soon time came for a’ to be at death’s door
(And then they finally died)

Niobe now’s bairnless, rich-less with an umbrageous heart
Nothin’ can ease her pain, she’s been torn a-part
Her arrogance and stoutness against god’s omnipotence
Alas! Lo and behold! Her voiceless woe

Crimson procession baited her eyes
Dead slain bodies all around, ghastly doom her price
She wept for days, (a fin) was turned into a stone
That sheds tears on and on upon the Mont Sipylon

Crimson parade baited her eyes
Dead slain bodies all around, grisly doom her price
She wept for days, (a fin) was turned into a stone
That sheds tears on and on upon the Mont Sipylon

Niobe
