THE MADNESS OF RAINBOWS

Mr. Hearst explains how “a perfect world” is one of the most horrible things ever demanded

The world turns on dollars and dimes

Cold, nonetheless widely accepted

But it takes hot-blooded crimes

For utopian dreams

To become manifested

 

All paths to perfection run black with blood

True, even if unexpected

But it takes long knives and thugs

For a pie in the sky cause

To hold innocence captive

 

How does history show revolutions unfold

The madness of rainbows

The madness of rainbows

Glimmering ribbons just out of reach

Pretty lights in the sky

Throw such frightening shadows

The madness of rainbows

The madness of rainbows

The madness of rainbows

 

Deluded dark-hearts flipping apple carts      

Chasing white whales

Charging at windmills

Just out of reach, just out of reach                

Pretty lights in the sky

Throw such frightening shadows

 

The madness of rainbows

Blinds the blindly-devoted     

To the madness of rainbows

The madness of rainbows

Act 1 - Scene 10 -
00:00 / 00:00

Beware the prophets of virtue and radical change

Well-intended, yet highly defective  

Their methods too often deranged

Their morality twisted by an unflinching objective

 

How does history show revolutions unfold

The madness of rainbows

The madness of rainbows

The madness of rainbows

The madness of rainbows

 

Oh God, please save all those I love…

From the madness of rainbows
