Is Anybody There?
(ADEN walks through an empty council chamber in Catalan.)

ADEN
Is anybody there?
Does anybody care?
Does anybody see what I see?
They want to me to quit; they say
Give up the fight
Still to dragons I say,
"Good night, forever, good night!"
For I have crossed the Rubicon
Let the bridge be burned behind me
Come what may, come what may
Commitment!
The croakers all say we'll rue the day
There'll be hell to pay in fiery purgatory
Through all the gloom, through all the gloom
I see the rays of ravishing light and glory!
Is anybody there? Does anybody care?
Does anybody see what I see?
I see fireworks! I see the pagaent and
Pomp and parade
I hear the bells ringing out
I hear the cannons roar
I see the natives- all the natives
Free forever more
How quiet, how quiet the chamber is
How silent, how silent the chamber is
Is anybody there? Does anybody care?
Does anybody see what I see?
