Zero-hour

Launched unannounced

Alarm sudden loud and shrill

Rhyme and reason laid lame

By trembling dread

This is not a drill

 

Sailor’s warning

Red sky morning

To the lifeboat

Adrenaline

 

Steady steady

Level headed

Adrenaline

 

Panic’s grab and pull must be resisted

Calm and cool must be collected

Knee-jerk reflex rejected

Steady steady

Level headed Adrenaline

 

When catastrophe disastrously

Falls in from the sky

When self-control

And instinct collide-ide-ide-ide-ide

 

Floorboards rumbling

Rooftop crumbling

To the doorway

Adrenaline

 

Steady steady

Level headed Adrenaline

 

Before your train of thought

Jumps the rail

Before common sense

Can be impaled

Remain sensible in your uncertainty 

 

Level headed Level headed

Level headed

 

 

LEVEL-HEADED ADRENALINE

Patty’s parents react to the news of their daughter’s kidnapping, colliding in an up-tempo duet

Act 1 - Scene 7 -
00:00 / 00:00

Cautious options must be dissected

First and foremost please carry on

Steady steady

Steady steady adrenaline

Adrenaline adrenaline

Adrenaline

 

Steady steady

Level headed Adrenaline

 

Panic’s grab and pull must be resisted

Calm and cool must be collected

Knee-jerk reflex rejected

Level headed Level headed

 

Dam burst of fear

Ice-cold waters rising

To higher ground!

Adrenaline

 

Steady steady

Level headed

Adrenaline adrenaline

 

Stay stay stay                                     

No no no

To the way out

Quickly quickly go go go

Steady steady

Level headed                                      

Adrenaline
