The Lyrics

I want an OWL... No, seriously. I WANT an OWL. Why - not sure, but I want one. On a more serious note, though - just WHO would want an owl that much? A fancier of raptors? No... How about some wretch who did time at Delphi speaking to those people from Athens. After all, the symbol of ancient Athens is the OWL. (Note: Seems *Xenophon* (Athenian) actually went to Delphi before going off to fight in Persia. The rewrite more or less describes the trip back...)
Nightmare shrieker, feathered, up in a tree,
Run from me, hide from me, Nevermind - I See!
Old stone carving in a temple of woe,
Amid smoke and fumes, night comes on slow
Waiting for the curses of an ancient hill,
Ready are the hoplites, blood to spill.
They say...

"I want an owl,
I want an owl,
I want an owl,
and I want it NOW.
I want an owl,
I want an owl,
I want an owl,
and I want it NOW."

March on the trails over mountains through glens,
Red are the entrails in the Delphi fens,
Smoke drifts lazy away in the night,
Predictive augurs foretell of a fight,
Sharpen up the spears, file on the swords,
Dark is the night and heavy are the words.

They say...

"I want an owl,
I want an owl,
I want an owl,
and I want it NOW.
I want an owl,
I want an owl,
I want an owl,
and I want it NOW."

Clash on the road on the way to the west,
Fight in the night as we run from the rest,
Butcher the cattle and devour the sheep,
Kill all the men so the women may weep,
Red is the dawn and red are the swords,
Long march home and write down the words.
They say...

"I want an owl,
I want an owl,
I want an owl,
and I want it NOW.
I want an owl,
I want an owl,
I want an owl,
and I want it NOW."
