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 »

Living on the edge of the century

See the world in revolution
Spinning faster all the time
We're heading for the end of something
Just about to step across that line
Oh, can't you see?
We're staring in the face of reality
Oh, you and me
We're living on the edge of the century

Feel the way the earth is shaking
Hear the rumble miles away
Say goodbye to Checkpoint Charlie
Walls are falling every day
Oh, can't you see?
Every step we take we're making history
Oh, you and me
We're living on the edge of the century

Feel the way the earth is shaking
Fires and floods and hurricanes
A voice cries out in revelation
"Say hello to Y-2-K!"
Oh, can't you see?
We're jumpin on the ledge of uncertainty
Oh, you and me
We're living on the edge of the century

Can't turn off the information
Can't sit back in your easy chair
Can't ignore a generation
Better get ready cause we're almost there

We're moving at the speed of life
Into a brave new world where the strong will survive
The dawn's gonna break and I'll meet you
On the other side

Can't stand still while the earth is turning
Can't take cover til the coast is clear
Can't play guitar while Rome is burning
Look our now cause the future's here

And we're moving at the speed of life
Living on the edge
On the edge of the century
