AMANTIA / VOICE OF REASON
(To HUBRIS)
HMMM, THERE’S AN OLD STORY ABOUT A MAN WHO TOLD THE BUDDHA, I WANT HAPPINESS. THE BUDDHA REPLIED, ”FIRST REMOVE THE ‘I’, THAT’S EGO. THEN REMOVE ‘WANT’, THAT’S DESIRE. AND NOW ALL YOU’RE LEFT WITH IS HAPPINESS.” YOUR PERSONALITY SEEMS TO RUB PEOPLE THE WRONG WAY. IF YOU WANT TO HAVE FRIENDS AND PEOPLE AROUND YOU, YOU HAVE TO COME INTO FLOW WITH LIFE. OPEN UP AND LET LIFE FLOW THROUGH YOU. YOU ARE A PART OF LIFE, NOT SUPERIOR TO LIFE. DOES THAT HELP YOU?

(HUBRIS looks at GENUS DEI and AMANTIA / VOICE OF REASON in a thoughtful way, while absorbing what was said. HE gets up and begins his song Who Am I? done to music which reflects ABBA’s style. Music Video 3 enhances the song)

HUBRIS
I KEEP ASKING
WHO AM I?
I SEEM TO KNOW
I AM ALL SHOW
BUT DEEP INSIDE
I DO NOTHING BUT HIDE
MY FEELINGS AND EMOTION
FROM THIS ENDLESS OCEAN
WHAT’S THE SECRET TO FREEDOM
AND THE KEY TO THE GARDEN OF EDEN?

(HUBRIS, turning and looking at himself in a mirror)

I MUST ADMIT I HAVE AFFECTION FOR ME
I AM HANDSOME, RICH AND SO INTO ME
WHO NEEDS OTHERS WHEN I HAVE ME
GLORIOUS AND RESPLENDENT FOR ALL TO SEE
I KNOW I’M NOT GOD, BUT CLOSE ENOUGH FOR ME
OTHERS ARE SO ENVIOUS, THIS I CAN SEE
I’M PERFECT, BEAUTIFUL AND ALL FOR EFFECT

DANCERS AND SINGERS
(Join in)
IT’S ALL ABOUT ME
OH ME, OH MY, OH WOW
I AM RIFE WITH GOLD, AND NOT VERY OLD
IT’S ALL ABOUT ME AND MY LIFE
(Sound of airplane engines)
IT’S ALL ABOUT ME
OH ME, OH MY, OH WOW
I AM RIFE WITH GOLD, AND NOT VERY OLD
IT’S ALL ABOUT ME AND MY LIFE
(Sound of airplane engines)

HUBRIS
HAVE YOU SEEN ALL MY THINGS?
ALL GRAND AND THE SAME AS KINGS
MY PLANE HAS MASSIVE WINGS
AND MY HOME RESTS ABOVE NATURAL SPRINGS
JUST LOOK AT MY INCREDIBLE HAIR
MY BODY, GOOD LOOKS AND CLOTHES IF YOU DARE
DO YOU BLAME PEOPLE WHO LOVE MY FLARE?
I LOVE IT WHEN THEY CARE TO STARE

BUT WHY CAN’T I FACE MY INSIDE?
MAYBE I WON’T LIKE WHAT ABIDES
WILL I BE SHALLOW OR EVEN HOLLOW?
CAN I CURB MY EGO TIDES?
WILL I HATE MYSELF AND WALLOW?
SOMEONE SAVE ME FROM MY MISGUIDES
HELP ME WITH WHO DECIDES
I JUST WANT TO KNOW, WHO AM I?
(Pauses for a moment while looking at himself in the mirror again)
BUT THEN AGAIN, IN THE END, I JUST WANT ME

DANCERS and SINGERS

IT’S ALL ABOUT ME
OH ME, OH MY, OH WOW
I AM RIFE WITH GOLD, AND NOT VERY OLD
IT’S ALL ABOUT ME AND MY LIFE
(Sound of airplane engines)
IT’S ALL ABOUT ME

AND I AM SO OUT OF HERE
(Sound of an airplane taking off)

Lady Fear from One, a musical

Scroll to June 2016 for full musical

LADY FEAR

STOP!

(SHE stands up and looks at GENUS DEI and AMANTIA / VOICE OF REASON like SHE doesn’t recognize them, starts to move away from the table, looking around and then begins to pace in a circle. SHE stops, hesitates and begins her song called Loneliness done with a simple piano melody, classical in nature)

 

 

IT’S EARLY DAWN WITH BIRDS IN SONG

I STIR INSIDE AS I TRY AND DECIDE

LEAVE MY BEDSIDE OR GO OUTSIDE

WITH TEA IN HAND,

(She moves towards her table and picks up her cup of tea)

I SEE NOTHING FOR ME

I PREPARE TO WALK AWAY MY TEARS

SO I READY MY CLOTHES, AND HIDE MY FEARS

I PICK-UP MY CANE,

(She picks up her cane)

TO WALK PARADISE LANE

WITH ENDLESS BEAUTY AROUND ME,

AND NOTHING FOR ME TO SEE

I LIVE IN PARADISE, THIS PARADISE

 

 

SINGERS and DANCERS

NOW IMPOSSIBLE TO REALIZE

 

 

LADY FEAR

I LIVE IN PARADISE, THIS PARADISE

 

 

SINGERS and DANCERS

NOW IMPOSSIBLE TO REALIZE

 

 

LADY FEAR

ON TABLETOP OPAQUE WITH FINE GRAINS OF SAND

(Walking towards the next empty table and looking at the top of the table)

MY TEA CUP RESTS EMPTY,

(She places her cup of tea back on the table)

OF THE ONLY WARMTH AT HAND

A FLY REMINDS ME OF UNCERTAIN PEACE

(She pretends to see a fly buzzing around, swings at it and adjusts her head to miss the fly)

LIKE LIFE EACH DAY, AND BARRIERS THAT NEVER CEASE

ANOTHER ENDLESS DAY OF SILENCE, FROM PEOPLE AND ME

AS MEMORIES AND YESTERDAY FADE,

THEN BECOME VAGUE

THE BIRDS HAVE GONE AWAY

SILENT LIKE WINDS TODAY

HOW MANY MORE DAYS

WILL FREE ME FROM LIFE’S MAZE?

 

I LIVE IN PARADISE, THIS PARADISE

 

 

SINGERS and DANCERS

NOW IMPOSSIBLE TO REALIZE

 

 

LADY FEAR

I LIVE IN PARADISE, THIS PARADISE

 

 

SINGERS and DANCERS

NOW IMPOSSIBLE TO REALIZE

 

 

LADY FEAR

MY TEA CUP IS EMPTY AND TOO LONELY TO FILL

(She sits back down at the table next to her teacup)

I SIT HERE THINKING OH SO STILL

THERE’S NO ONE LOVING, NO ONE TALKING

JUST SOMEONE WALKING,

(TEMPTATION walks by, looks at LADY FEAR and smiles)

PRETENDING TO CARE

NOT A DROP OF LOVE OR RESPECT TO SPARE

I’M LOCKED IN MY THOUGHTS, AS A MOUNTAIN TO ROCKS

UNWAVERING AND BARREN, WITH SO LITTLE LIFE

I’M ALONE IN MY LONELINESS AND IT CUTS LIKE A KNIFE

 

I LIVE IN PARADISE, THIS PARADISE

 

 

SINGERS and DANCERS

NOW IMPOSSIBLE TO REALIZE

 

 

LADY FEAR

I LIVE IN PARADISE, THIS PARADISE

 

 

SINGERS and DANCERS

NOW IMPOSSIBLE TO REALIZE

 

 

LADY FEAR

(INNOCENCE comes by the table and pours another cup of tea for LADY FEAR)

MY SECOND CUP OF TEA

WILL NO ONE TOUCH ME?

(Looking up longingly at INNOCENCE. Momentary pause…..looking around)

WHILE AT HOME, ALL ALONE

            (timed to the video)

I TAKE MY CHAIR

IN A GARDEN OF PRAYER

I OPEN THE GATE, I HATE

SO I CAN SAFELY STARE

AND CHIDE

AT THE WORLD OUTSIDE

I WAIT FOR THE SUN

            (looking up to see if the sun is there)

MY ONLY FRIEND

AND MY TIME TO ASCEND

MANKIND AND WILL NEVER BREACH

NOR WILL I BESEECH

THEIR ENDLESS SPEECH

FOR NOW, MY LIFE IS OUT OF REACH

TAKE MY FEARS AWAY

I LIVE IN PARADISE, I LIVE IN PARADISE

PLEASE SOMEONE HUG ME

TAKE MY FEARS AWAY

I LIVE IN PARADISE, I LIVE IN PARADISE

 

PLEASE JUST ONE PERSON SAY

….I LOVE YOU……

….IN THIS PARADISE

….I LOVE YOU……I LOVE YOU

THE TRIUMVIRATE

(Music Video 9 begins and shows black and white sheep in fields being herded, with scenes of some sheep escaping and running away. During the chorus of the song Sheep, the sheep actually voice themselves. THE TRIUMVIRATE stands up and moves to center stage to begin their song Sheep. DANCERS join them dressed in chains, different religious dogma, laws of government, corporation’s gadgets, cell phones, or time pieces, with wires leading to and from their bodies. AUDIENCE participation with whistles that sound like sheep when blown is encouraged by ACACIUS. The chorus words for Sheep are shown on the video screen so the AUDIENCE can sing along)

Bus Stop
September 10, 2016

aaaaa

 

It’s early evening as I walk by the bus stop. There are about twelve people waiting for various buses. As I glance at the faces I see the world.

A youthful man in his mid twenties returns my glance. His face is full of anger and his eyes are full of hate. The woman sitting next to him who looks like she’s in her eighties, but is probably younger, shows a life of struggle, pain, hard work and no reward. Her eyes are sad and tired. She’s hanging on, but doesn’t know why.

The others are a variation of negative emotions showing no hope or joy. How did this all come about? Lack of caring?  Lack of love? For ourselves?

There may be no immediate answer. If there is a solution, it has to come from within an individual. Only then can it inspire others to find their own strength and put the illusionary world behind.

OKAY LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, WE’RE GOING TO START OUR KARAOKE OFF TONIGHT WITH ONE OF OUR FAVORITE BARTENDERS. EGNATIUS HAS WRITTEN A PERSONAL SONG AND HE’S GOING TO SING IT FOR YOU TONIGHT.

 

 

EGNATIUS

(Leaves the bar area and walks over to the stage while transforming into his alter ego. HE takes the elastic out of his hair, revealing long wild hair. HE removes his work shirt, which covered his arms, to reveal tattoos and rocker wear. HE grabs the mike to sing his song; I Don’t Like Sleeping In My Own Bed. It’s a rock ballad balanced out with tenderness. Music Video 4, Part 2 begins and depicts the treadmill of life and the constant desire we have to break free from the never ending cycle of repetition. DANCERS and SINGERS join in as chorus)
