Clive Nolan – Waiting For News lyrics

King: You know what to do?
Jessamine: You can rely on me Professor… I will not let you down.
King: I am sure of it.
Amelia: Is there news?
King: Not yet, but it is still early. They will return soon, I have no doubt. What is that melody? I have heard you sing it before.
Amelia: This is my father’s legacy. He left me nothing but some scattered memories, a mountain of debts and this simple lullaby. The song has no apparent meaning but in difficult times, it brings me peace.

Paths of life go far and wide
Through mystery and faith
So trust in me, your guiding light
And I will keep you safe
Walk on straight through the darkness
Then make the choice of the devil
For this is the choice that is true
Yield to the angels not once but twice
Then dance with the devil just one more time
But the final dance is for angels alone

We have news

We found these papers

We overheard them talking

Be prepared to be… amazed…confounded…

We never guessed what that alchemist had done
He had us chasing shadows – had us on the run

Be calm my friends and speak more clearly

Eva: Here…read this.

Gardelle & Eva:
We did not fully grasp the cunning of the man
He know that soon he’d die, so he drew up a plan
The journey that he took was more about his health
The artefact we seek is Anzeray himself

King: So it is “The Skull of Thomas Anzeray”…ingenious. The power to open this gateway comes from him. He was always part of the equation.
Eva: The journal was in Italy… the Stones are in the German Confederation and the Skull is in England.
King: Yes, but where?
Gardelle & Eva: There’s more!

We overheard Ben Greaves bragging to the maid
She did not want him there
She would not have him stay
He sought to elevate his standing in her eyes
By revealing that the cemetery in Highgate
Holds the prize

Eva: At midnight tomorrow, the full moon will shine through the harp of an angel’s statue. It will point to the place where the Skull is buried.
Gardelle: Jagman has organized some kind of celebration for the Hellfire Club and he intends to claim the artefact under the cover of the festivities.
King: Then we must attend this party ourselves. We will need disguises… let us consider our options…
