Repo! The Genetic Opera - Chase The Morning lyrics

BLIND MAG
Shilo?
Is your name Shilo?
Can I talk to you?
Can you come down, please
So we can speak?

I saw you at the show
I thought I'd seen a ghost
Your resemblance is striking
You have your mother's eyes, her hair
I was told you died with her
All these years have come and gone
How do I put this?
I'm your (I'm your)...Godmom

SHILO
State your business

BLIND MAG
Business?

SHILO
What do you want?

BLIND MAG
I want, I want to finally meet you -
Something real to cling to, leave you
With the hope that you will go do
All you're meant to, all I failed to
In you is a world of promise
We have both been kept in bondage
But you can learn from all my failures

SHILO
I'm not supposed to talk to strangers

BLIND MAG
Or let them through the gate?

SHILO
That either
A big risk

BLIND MAG
A big fence

SHILO
A mistake

BLIND MAG
A new friend

MARNI
Chase the morning
Yield for nothing

Chase the morning
Yield for nothing

SHILO
How'd you do that?

BLIND MAG
Do what?

SHILO
That! That eye thing

BLIND MAG
These eyes can do more than see

SHILO
I know, I mean
I've seen you sing

BLIND MAG
Where?

SHILO
From my window
I can see the world from there
Name the stars and constellations
Count the cars and watch the seasons

BLIND MAG
I wish we could have watched together

SHILO
I can't have guests

BLIND MAG
Never?

SHILO
Ever
If Dad found out that I'd been let out
Or that you'd been let in

BLIND MAG
I should go, then
Before I do, promise me you won't

SHILO
It's better that you

MAG
Don't

BOTH
Forget me

BLIND MAG
A sheltered rose needs a little
Room to grow outside her bedroom

SHILO (overlapping)
Best if I resume
My life inside my bedroom

MARNI
Chase the morning
Yeild for nothing

Chase the morning
Yeild for nothing

BLIND MAG
Let your life be your dream
Integrity, honesty,
It's too late for me
Don't look back till you're free to
Chase the morning

MARNI
Yield for nothing
Chase the morning
Yield for nothing
Yield for nothing
