請問”The Lyre Of Orpheus”這首歌的意思

20點請大家幫忙

"The Lyre Of Orpheus"

Orpheus sat gloomy in his garden shed

Wondering what to do

With a lump of wood, a piece of wire

And a little pot of glue

He sawed at the wood with half a heart

And glued it top to bottom

He strung a wire in between

He was feeling something rotten

Orpheus looked at his instrument

And he gave the wire a pluck

He heard a sound so beautiful

He gasped and said O my God

He rushed inside to tell his wife

He went racing down the halls

Eurydice was still asleep in bed

Like a sack of cannonballs

Look what I've made, cried Orpheus

And he plucked a gentle note

Eurydice's eyes popped from their sockets

And her tongue burst through her throat

O God, what have I done, he said

As her blood pooled in the sheets

But in his heart he felt a bliss

With which nothing could compete

Orpheus went leaping through the fields

Strumming as hard as he did please

Birdies detonated in the sky

Bunnies dashed their brains out on the trees

Orpheus strummed till his fingers bled

He hit a G minor 7

He woke up God from a deep, deep sleep

God was a major player in heaven

God picked up a giant hammer

And He threw it with an thunderous yell

It smashed down hard on Orpheus' head

And knocked him down a well

The well went down very deep

Very deep went down the well

The well went down so very deep

Well, the well went down to hell

Poor Orpheus woke up with a start

All amongst the rotting dead

His lyre tacked safe under his arm

His brains all down his head

Eurydice appeared brindled in blood

And she said to Orpheus

If you play that *****ing thing down here

I'll stick it up your orifice!

This lyre lark is for the birds, said Orpheus

It's enough to send you bats

Let's stay down here, Eurydice, dear

And we'll have a bunch of screaming brats

Orpheus picked up his lyre for the last time

He was on a real low down bummer

And stared deep into the abyss and said

This one is for Mamma

    相傳身為Thrace (瑟雷斯)國王Oeagrus (歐伊亞葛洛斯)以及司掌詩文的女神Calliope (可萊兒琵;九位繆司中最年長也最權威者)之子Orpheus,在音樂及太陽之神Apollo (阿波羅;另有一說Orpheus係為其子)贈予一豎琴(lyre)並傳授琴藝後,青出於藍的Orpheus,其琴聲不僅能撫平怒火中燒之人,並能吸引飛禽走獸駐足聆聽,令山河為之移動、改道-

    2009-10-23 16:26:11 補充:

    在眾神的祝福下,Orpheus與相戀的Eurydice,也就是一位半神半人的美麗少女(nymph)結為連理。然而,就在鶼鰈情深的小倆口正沉浸於婚後幸福美滿的日子沒多久時,一件不該發生的意外,卻讓這對神仙美眷頓時陰陽兩隔。而當天意外發生前,Eurydice為了避開覬覦她美色而死纏爛打的Aristaeus (亞里斯泰晤士;係牧羊人與獵人之守護神,其為Apollo與一nymph之子),卻一個不小心慘遭毒蛇襲擊而命喪黃泉。面對愛妻Eurydice的驟逝,傷心逾恆的Orpheus為了讓Eurydice能夠死而復生,於是決定親赴冥府並期望能把愛妻帶回陽間.

    2009-10-23 16:27:47 補充:

    雖然負責看守冥府大門的是兇猛無比的Cerberus (三頭狗),但由於被Orpheus優美的豎琴聲給打動,於是即允許Orpheus進入冥府。而在Orpheus的琴聲及苦苦哀求聲中,冥王(Hades)及冥后(Persephone)也不由得感動莫名而答應讓Orpheus帶Eurydice返回陽間;不過得有一個條件,那就是在Eurydice尾隨Orpheus返回陽世前的這段陰間路程,Orpheus絕對不能回頭看他愛妻Eurydice一眼,否則Eurydice將再也無法重返陽世。

    2009-10-23 16:29:31 補充:

    對於思妻心切的Orpheus來說,這樣一個看似簡單的通行守則加諸在他的身上雖成了艱鉅又殘酷的試煉,但是為了能讓愛妻起死回生,Orpheus自然是得默默遵從。不過,就在快要步出陰間的一剎那,由於不確定愛妻是否真有尾隨於後,終究使得Orpheus按捺不住回頭看了一眼,而此時一切已成定局,Eurydice被冥河船伕(Caronte)嚴禁放行渡河。而為自己的大意懊惱不已的Orpheus,任憑他再怎麼苦苦求情並企圖再次越過冥河至冥界,均遭拒絕。

    2009-10-23 16:31:39 補充:

    傷心欲絕的Orpheus獨自一人回到陽世後,鎮日在Thrace的山谷間彈唱著豎琴。除了豎琴所流瀉出的哀傷曲調源源不絕外,Orpheus對Eurydice念念不忘的憔悴神情,亦使得酒神(Dionysus)的女信徒們(Bacchae)再也無法憐憫和容忍,於是將Orpheus給殺死並支解身軀,然後把他的頭顱和豎琴丟到Hebrus(黑布魯斯河)中,並隨著河流漂到了愛琴海中的Lesbos(勒斯波斯島);/另說是,繆司們齊力將Orpheus肢離破碎的身軀給埋葬在Olympus(奧林帕斯山)。

    ~~~The Lyre Of Orpheus=奧費斯的七弦豎琴

    在諸繆司和Apollo阿波羅的請求下,天神Zeus (宙斯)即把Orpheus的豎琴拋向天際..

    成了星象群中的天琴座(Lyra)。

    --在星圖中,豎琴呈鷹狀--

    1.The Lyre Of Orpheus=奧費斯的七弦豎琴

    2. 作者以嘲諷式的漫畫MV,去批判現今的歌手和樂團眾多, 音樂作品良莠不齊;

    奧費斯在他的流洒的庭院裡坐了陰沉想知道怎样做使用木頭團,導線片斷和一個小的罐膠漿

    奧費斯看他的儀器,並且他給了導線他聽見聲音的一採,很美麗他喘氣了並且說喔'我的上帝

    他衝裡面告诉他去賽跑在大廳下Eurydice是睡著在像一個大袋的床上炮彈的他的妻子
