lyrics

Olympus is Gone

In the old days, we looked to the sky
To find meaning, to find answers why
For escaping into the sublime
So now people called celebrities
Become risen into deities
Into something approaching the divine

Like the ancient ones, imperfect but immortal
It’s a new mythology for modern times

Because Olympus is gone
And all the gods have moved on without me
Because Olympus is gone, Olympus is gone

Now I Insta a little too much
And use Twitter a little too much
I am helpless, hopelessly obsessed
But it’s human, the way that I feel
It’s an instinct to find something real
Find some safety when life becomes a mess

But you may well ask, why’s it so important
I don’t know for sure, but I have a guess

It’s ‘cause Olympus is gone
And all the gods have moved on without me
Because Olympus is gone, Olympus is gone

Like imaginary friends, they’re what I make them
Part of them exists, but part of them is mine
All mine

Because Olympus is gone
And all the gods have moved on without me
Because Olympus is gone, Olympus is gone

Because Olympus is gone
And all the gods have moved on without me
Because Olympus is gone, Olympus is gone
