Epiphany (2007) (Letra/Lyrics)
Anthony Hope (Jamie Campbell Bower) - [speaking]
Sweeney Todd (Johnny Depp)
Mrs. Lovett (Helena Bonham Carter)
Anthony Hope: “Mr. Todd, you have to help me!
Mr. Todd, please!”
Sweeney Todd: “Out.”
Anthony Hope: “Mr. Todd!”
Sweeney Todd: “OUT!”
Mrs. Lovett: “All this shouting and running about!
Sweeney Todd: “I had him!”
His throat was bare beneath my hand
“No! I had him!”
His throat was there and he’ll never come again!
Mrs. Lovett: Easy not!
Hush, love, hush!
I keep telling you--
Sweeney Todd: When!
Mrs. Lovett: What’s your rush!?
Sweeney Todd: 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 two kinds of men and only two
There’s the one staying put in his proper place
And the one with his foot in the other one’s face
Look at me, Mrs. Lovett, look at you
Though 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
How ’bout 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!
I want you bleeders!
You sir, anybody!
Gentlemen, now don’t be shy!
Not one man
No not 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 honourable 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!
