"Our Lady of the Underground"

[PERSEPHONE]
(spoken)
Step into my office
(sung)
I don't know about you, boys
But if you're like me
Then hanging around this old manhole
Is bringing you down
Six-feet-under
Getting under your skin
Cabin fever is a-setting in
You're stir crazy!
Stuck in a rut!
Oh you could use a little pick-me-up
I can give you what it is you crave
A little something from the good old days

I got the wind right here in a jar
I got the rain on tap at the bar
I got sunshine up on the shelf
Allow me to introduce myself:

Brother, what's my name?
My name is-

[COMPANY]
Our Lady of the Underground!

[PERSEPHONE]
Brother, what's my name?

[COMPANY]
Our Lady of Ways!
Our Lady of Means!

[PERSEPHONE]
Brother, what's my name?
My name is…

[COMPANY]
Our Lady of the Upside Down!

[PERSEPHONE]
Wanna know my name?
I'll tell you my name-
Persephone!

Come here, brother- let me guess:
It's the little things you miss
Spring flowers
Autumn leaves
Ask me, brother, and you shall receive
Or maybe these just ain't enough
Maybe you're looking for some stronger stuff
I got a sight for the sorest eye
When was the last time you saw the sky?

Wipe away your tears, brother
Brother, I know how you feel
I can see you're blinded by the sadness of it all
But look a little closer and
Everything will be revealed
Look a little closer and
There's a crack in the wall!

[PERSEPHONE introduces the band, and the COMPANY cheers each player]
(spoken)
Ladies and Gentlemen, Brian Drye on the trombone!
Marika Hughes on the cello!
Dana Lyn on the violin!
Ben Perowski on the drums!
Robinson Morse on the bass!
Michael Chorney on the guitar!
And Liam Robinson on the keys!
(sung)
You want stars? [COMPANY cheers] I got a skyfull!
Put a quarter in the slot, you'll get an eyeful
You want the moon?
Yeah, I got her too
She's right here waiting in my pay-per-view

How long's it been?
A little moonshine ain't no sin
Tell my husband to take his time!
What the boss don’t know
The boss won't mind
