Devote your heart to the power from the start Lightning currency, electricity Open your minds, open your eyes I’ll draw volts from the sky Current flowing through me Providing all you need I will recharge, I will renew Pull from the heavens and give unto you Shining voltage, blinding truth Observe and celebrate this day of Cascade Devote your prayer to my power, Strong and fair Open your minds, open your eyes I’ll draw volts from the sky Current flowing through me Providing all you need I will recharge, I will renew Pull from the heavens and give unto you Shining voltage, blinding truth

Dreams cannot show the path yet untold For even in dreams my secret’s unknown Electric soul, transmitting hand Will give me away to this land They cannot know the power in me This caustic burden would blind them to see You can believe in Pharaoh’s lies Though it is I who keeps us alive Electric heart, circuit of pain It’s only blood in these veins Electric soul, transmitting hand Will give me away to this land Scars on my skin burn from within Time is wearing thin Cannot explain the power or pain The secret I contain Electric heart, circuit of pain It’s only blood in these veins Electric soul, transmitting hand Will give me away to this land

Tell me Dimmer what you’re doing Is the sky above not blueing? The unseen hand that stirs the pot Not deep within you stewing? Tell me Dimmer what you’re doing Is your power not accruing? Are the hops and grains and acid rains In Dimmerville not brewing? Tell me boy does in thee lie A secret most confusing? A danger lies behind your eyes For our two minds are fusing Not East or West, not high or low Nor from the high horns bewing The place you seek is far beneath The Egypt you are viewing Tell me Dimmer what you’re doing Is the secret worth pursuing? Your people worth the torment And your city worth renewing?

I can’t sleep - only hear the sound Of our system breaking down Reason, logic - clouding my mind Father’s meaning I try to find Papyrus scapes fill my dreams Showing a truth unseen My purpose starts to unwind A puzzle in time A talisman - my father’s pride Rescue friends and lose my ties I am from the upper tier My family - my fall they fear Papyrus scapes fill my dreams Showing a truth unseen My purpose starts to unwind A puzzle in time Everything changes! Friendships in which I believe Showing a truth unseen Our generations unwind A puzzle in time

TARIQ: You had this power in your hands What? You didn’t think I’d understand? You’re no fighter, no, you’re not like me But I’ve never kept anything unseen I always confide in you My brother my friend You’ve made it clear to me You don’t do the same CHENZIRA: I didn’t mean to let you down I didn’t want it to get around My own mother doesn’t know I was scared to... TARIQ: Why didn’t you let me know? I feel cheated, I feel betrayed Why’d you think that I’d give it away? How could you live in secrecy? You really hurt me Chenzi! CHENZIRA: Sorry that I never told Thought I couldn’t trust a soul I saw my future! I was on my own I have this power, but no control! For such a long time I’ve felt so alone TARIQ: Because you kept this all to your own! CHENZIRA: I couldn’t trust you to keep this quiet TARIQ: How could you keep this inside? CHENZIRA & TARIQ: Now what from here? Made your (my) own prison What can I say? / Why won’t you listen? TARIQ: Why do you run? CHENZIRA: You made me the chosen one!

TARIQ: The time is now, the fight begins Hidden skills lie deep within With a weapon we all have a voice The people rise - the Pharaoh falls The people fight - send out the call The day has come - there is no other choice! The lion’s at the door What I’ve been waiting for Cobras coil in fear Now that we’re here There’s power in the dark MILLION: It’s our time to tear down walls It’s our time to make this reign fall The day has come there is no other choice We’ve found a way to create a fire We will fight, we will inspire We’ve found a way to discover the truth MILLION & ENSEMBLE: The lion’s at the door What I’ve been waiting for Cobras coil in fear Now that we’re here There’s power in the dark! MILLION / TARIQ: We were the dark / Lacking light But now / We ignite Joining forces To bring a fight! An idea / Now reality A dream / A strategy A plan comes together A Revolution! ALL: The Lion’s at the door What I’ve been waiting for Cobras coil in fear Now that we’re here There’s power in the dark!

The current flows towards me I’m a river of light And yet the glow within me Casts eternal night I feel strange - I am a form The light and I are one A man no more - a god is born My walls contain the sun This brain requires everything The city has to give The glow of old New Memphis Enables me to live I know not yet my purpose No messages to send I only know the sequence And I will be the end I have no simple answers No Volts left to extend I only know the sequence And I will be the end

AMUNET: Looking up we see the breaking of night Looking at each other bathed in sunlight MILLION: Clouds amidst the sky illuminate Colors and sounds reverberate AMUNET & MILLION: Here we view the sky Curious, unknowing Rays intensify Brilliant, glowing Here we view the sky curious, unknowing Rays intensify Brilliant, glowing ALL: We’re the children of the light!
