about

This song is a dark fairy tale inspired by a bold revisitation of mythological stories that never existed.
It was conceived in the early '90s, on a hot summer day, from the fantasy of two young girls who fantasised about an unlikely hero and his courageous adventures in a distant world and in another time.

The memory came back to me, so I revisited the lyrics and wrote the music inspired by the 70s psychedelic prog-rock albums from Queen.

lyrics

For a crime, so long ago..
the lord of gods condemned him to go
and look for a silver spit in the deep
blue of the sea

But he was taken by the fairies, yeah!
and when the morning came
he found himself all naked in the field
he couldn’t speak a word!

And Brian went.. Taking with him
A wooden club and his faithful horse
The venus apple made of gold
And a magic skin of pork

But he was taken by the fairies, yeah!
and when the morning came
he found himself all naked in the field
he couldn’t speak a word!

"Welcome to our fun world
You can sleep up in the air
if the Queen wants"

Mab is hiding in these woods
She isn’t far.. She’s a beauty
But she can turn your dreams
into nightmares

Ah!

She isn’t far.. She has no pity at all!
Oh! Ah!

He has fallen so deep, Fallen so deep
Fallen so deep.. fallen so deep
Fallen down.. fallen down
Down so deep.. down so deep! Deep!

He has fallen so deep
Fallen so deep.. fallen so deep
‘The light in your eyes is the key to your soul.. my love.. my love.. my love’

Fallen down.. fallen down..
Down so deep… down so deep

"The hunger you have left gave me power over you"
