lyrics

USHER, PART 2
________

[BRENT]
Side 2, Track 5. “Usher, Part 2.”

[DAVE (Edgar)]
AS ROXIE LAY DYING IN HER BEDROOM
MY WIFE SANG
AND OUR SON PLAYED HIS GUITAR
WILD IMPROVISATIONS
DIRGES AND WALTZES
FEVERED RHAPSODIES

[GELSEY & BRENT (Lady Usher & Fool)]
THE STONES ARE ALIVE
THE STONES ARE ALIVE
THE DECAYING TREES
THE MOSS ON THE WALL
THE MOSS ON THE WALL
THE CONDENSATION ON THE WINDOW
IT IS ALL ALIVE
ALL ALIVE

[ALL]
THE DRIVER CAN’T STOP
THE GHOST IS HERE
THE DRIVER CAN’T STOP
THE GHOST IS HERE

THE DRIVER CAN’T STOP
DRIVER CAN’T STOP
THE GHOST IS HERE
DRIVER CAN’T STOP
DRIVER CAN’T STOP
THE GHOST IS HERE

[BRITTAIN (Roxie)]
WHERE IS MY BROTHER?

[BRENT]
I’m right here.

[BRITTAIN]
WHERE IS MY SISTER?

[GELSEY]
You don’t have a sister.

[BRITTAIN]
WHERE IS MY LITTLE GIRL?

[DAVE]
SHE’S GONE

[BRITTAIN]
SHE’S GONE

[DAVE]
AND WITH THAT, ROXIE DIED

[DAVE & GELSEY]
AND WE LOOKED UPON THE FACE OF OUR LITTLE GIRL

[BRITTAIN]
THE MOCKERY OF A FAINT BLUSH
THE SUSPICIOUSLY LINGERING SMILE UPON THE LIP
SO TERRIBLE IN DEATH

[GELSEY]
O ROXIE
WHY DID YOU HAVE TO DIE
I FORGIVE YOU
O ROXIE
O ROXIE
O ROSE

I SHALL PRESERVE HER CORPSE A FORTNIGHT
IN THE VAULT UNDERNEATH OUR BEDROOM
