Anaïs Mitchell - Epic Part One lyrics

King of diamonds, king of spades!
Hades was king of the kingdom of dirt
Miners of mines, diggers of graves
They bowed down to Hades who gave them work

And they bowed down to Hades who made them sweat
Who paid them their wages and set them about
Digging and dredging and dragging the depths of the earth
To turn its insides out, singing
La la la la la la la [4x]

King of mortar, king of bricks
The River Styx was a river of stones
And Hades laid them high and thick
With a million hands that were not his own

And a million feet that fell in line
And stepped in time with Hades' step
And a million minds that were just one mind

Like stones in a row
And stone by stone
And row by row
The River rose up, singing
La la la la la la la [4x]
