    Lyrics

    [On a late night in the spring of 1827
    The city of Vienna is experiencing the largest lightning storm in its long history.
    Within a large disheveled room,
    Ludwig Von Beethoven is slumped over his piano
    And on the piano sits the just completed manuscript for his tenth symphony.
    It is his final, and he is certain, his greatest work.]

    Since the time when ra and isis
    Raised the sphinx out of the sand
    And apollo dreamed athena
    And men began to understand

    That when darkness folds on darkness
    In the restless tides of night
    And lightning raises shadows
    And for moments gives them life

    It's been said by those who ponder
    That it surely is a sign
    That a life touched by the stars
    Is now running out of time

    And that somewhere in that darkness
    In the heart of that great storm
    The world returns a soul
    That the gods caused to be born

    And this was such a storm
    The kind one rarely sees in life
    For in a room now filled with shadows
    The great Beethoven was spending

    His last night

    [From the shadows a beautiful spirit, fate,
    And her deformed dwarf son, twist,
    Emerge to inform Beethoven of what he has already deeply suspected,
    That this is to be his last night on earth.
    They are accompanied by numerous spirits and ghosts from his past.]
