Styx

The Styx (Ancient Greek: Στύξ, also meaning "hate" and "detestation") (adjectival form: Stygian, /ˈstɪdʒiən/) is a river in Greek mythology that formed the boundary between Earth and the Underworld (often called Hades which is also the name of this domain's ruler). The rivers Styx, Phlegethon, Acheron, and Cocytus all converge at the center of the underworld on a great marsh, which is also sometimes called the Styx. The important rivers of the underworld are Lethe, Eridanos, and Alpheus. more »

Give me a job give me security
Give me a chance to survive
I'm just a poor soul in the unemployment line
My God I'm hardly alive

My mother and father, my wife and my friends
You've seen them laugh in my face
But I've got the power and I've got the will
I'm not a charity case

I'll take those (long nights, impossible odds)
Keeping my eye on the keyhole
If it takes (all that to be just what I am)
Well I'm gonna be a blue collar man

Make me an offer that I can't refuse
Make me respectable man
This is my last time in the unemployment line
So like it or not

I'll take those (long nights, impossible odds)
Keeping my eye on the keyhole
If it takes (all that to be just what I am)
Well I'm gonna be a blue collar man

Keeping my mind on a better life
Where happiness is only a heartbeat away
Paradise can it be all I heard it was
I close my eyes and maybe I'm already there

I'll take those (long nights, impossible odds)
Keeping my back to the hole
(All that to be just what I am)
Well I'm gonna be a blue collar man

You don't understand
I'll take those (long nights, impossible odds)
Keeping my eye on the keyhole
If it takes (all that to be just what I am)
Well I'm gonna be a blue collar man
I'm gonna be a blue collar man
I'm gonna be a blue collar man
