THE ELEVENTH HOUR

A prelude to the instrumental “11-o’clock number” contemplates the uncertainty of all last-minute cliffhangers

It all comes down

It all comes down

It all comes down

In the eleventh hour

 

Your last handful of sand

In your last hour glass

The last ten fingers of ledge

In your trembling grasp

The last ten inches of fuse

Before the blast

Your last knotted sheet

Thrown down from the tower

It all comes down

It all comes down

It all comes down (to the last minute)

In the eleventh hour

 

Can you turn back the tide

Or will it turn sour

Like the last H-bomb

For the last superpower

 

It all comes down

It all comes down

It all comes down (just like it should)

In the eleventh hour

 

The last sliver of moon

The last rays of the sun

The last scene in the act

To pull Chekov’s gun

‚Äč

Act 2 - Scene 19 -
00:00 / 00:00

Your last match in the wind

With your last twig of kindling

Your last hope’s redemption

Hanging

Suspended

Anxious

Uncertain

Like the last chance to dance

For the last wallflower

It all comes down

It all comes down

It all comes down

Comes down

Comes down

In the eleventh hour
