Medea, I have loved you
Since the moment that I saw you
When you tore out all my teeth and
Put them in your apron pocket
I never minded violence
When your poison drove me senseless
Then I came to understand that
I would never want another

Medea, you look tired
All your fingers thick with venom
And the bloodstains on your apron
Are your brother and your children
I never minded murder
It's the act of a survivor
Now I've grown out all my teeth back
Far more splendid than the last set

Medea, you are golden
Like your grandfather in heaven
Who is sunlight and the daylight
And whose chariot is fire
All the heroes who betray you
Who abandon and discard you
Are as shadows in the shadow
That your shining casts behind you

Medea, I am ready
And my back is broad and golden
I have polished all my talons
And my treasure's yours for taking
I have searched the world over
For a priestess and enchantress
Who will set her bare foot roughly
In the hollow of my shoulder

Medea, won't you ride me
I can only give you skyline
But I'll give it all and gladly
And I'll fly you high and freely
I will never try to tame you
If you take me and you claim me
We'll survive the sun together
And I'll never want another
