Lyrics

Part I: The Waste Land

This part is instrumental. However, in the album's fold-out lyric booklet, the track is listed with the phrase "Lasciate ogne Speranza, voi ch'intrate". This translates from Italian as "Abandon all hope, ye who enter here." This is a reference to the inscription on the Gates of Hell in Dante's Inferno.

Part II: Anonymous

I don't even know your name
No, I don't know the words to say
So I call you Anonymous

Anonymous

So I look at my life
Look at my friends
Look in the eyes of my enemy
It's all just a gift that I am going to give to you

My Anonymous

Now I know, know what to call you
What to call you


Part III: Return to Ithaka

This part, like The Waste Land, is instrumental.
