Lyrics - Scottish Opera

CRITICSThe lights did dim as the audience did cheer.WORKERSThen from high above a shout filled with fear.SINGERSLook out down below! We thought it most queer.CRITICSWe watched as the lights did fall.ALLAnd then we….LIBBY/COMPOWhat?ALLRaise the dead.Can you hear our anguished calling?Raise the dead.We’ve been trapped in misery.Every night we come to haunt,No sunlight makes us look so gaunt.Raise the dead.But we mean no present danger.Raise the dead.Now the other side calls to you.It’s been dreich for decades,Now you two can save us.We’re not here to cause you any dread.Raise the dead.SINGERSThen the light, it did spark,As the ember turned to flame.WORKERSAnd things in MacCabbra Opera House,Would never be the same.CRITICSThen the place filled with smoke.We began to cough and choke.ALLAs all inside were trapped here.No sign of hope,It really was no joke.ALLRaise the dead.Can you hear our anguished calling?Raise the dead.We’ve been trapped in misery.It’s been dreich for decades,Now you two can save us.
