Sweeney Todd - Epiphany Lyrics
What's all this shouting and running about, what's happened?
I had him.
The sailor busted in, I know, and then I saw the both running down
I had him! His throat was bare beneath my hand.
There there dear, calm down.
No, I had him! His throat was there and he'll never come again.
Easy now, hush love hush, I keep telling you -
What's your rush?
Why did I wait? You told me to wait, now he'll never come again.
There's a hole in the world like a great black pit, and it's filled with
people who are filled with shit, and the vermin of the world inhabit
it. But not for long...
They all deserve to die. Tell you why, Mrs. Lovett, tell you why.
Because in all of the whole human race, Mrs. Lovett, there are two
kinds of men and only two. There's the one staying out in his proper
place and the one with his foot in the other one's face. Look at me,
Mrs. Lovett, look at you.
No, we all deserve to die. Even you, Mrs. Lovett, even I. Because
the lives of the wicked should be made brief, for the rest of us
death will be a relief. We all deserve to die.
And I'll never, see Johanna. No I'll never hug my girl to me.
You sir, how about a shave?
Come and visit, your good friend Sweeney.
You sir, too sir? Welcome to the grave.
I will have vengeance, I will have salvation.
Who sir? You sir?
No one's in the chair, come on, come on.
Sweeney's waiting, I want you bleeders.
You sir? Anybody!
Gentlemen, now don't be shy.
Not one man, no, nor ten men, nor a hundred, can assuage me.
I will have you.
And I will get him back even as he gloats, in the meantime I'll
practice on less honorable throats.
And my Lucy, lies in ashes.
And I'll never, see my girl again.
But the work waits.
I'm alive at last.
And I'm full of joy!
