Portishead - “Elysium”
“Elysium”, by Portishead, 1997
No one has said what the truth should be And no one decided that I'd feel this way If you felt as I, would you betray yourself? ▲1≔ But you can't deny, how I feel And you can't decide for me No one should fear what they cannot see And no one's to blame, it's just hypocrisy It's written in your eyes and how I despise myself? ▲1 And it's your heart that's so wrong Mistaken You'll never know, your feathered sacred self ▲1 And you can't deny, how I feel And why should you decide for me
Elysium is the Isles of the Blessed. It is located on the western edge of the Earth by the stream of Okeanos. It is the place you go after death, to live a blessed and happy life, and indulging in whatever employment they had enjoyed in life.
But, it's only for those chosen by the gods, the righteous, and the heroic.
