lyrics

THE YOUNGER SON Brother, can you see me now? / Freedom’s fall complete / Look what I hold in my hands / A well-deserved defeat / All the birds have flown away / Dreams descend to dust / Father, can you see me now? / The one who was your son is lost / In my father’s house, there are no slaves, only servants and sons / In my father’s house, there are no slaves, only servants and sons / THE ELDER SON (Spoken) A lone figure dressed in rags appears on the horizon /“Go back where you came from. We have no work!” / He keeps walking toward Provision as if all he can do is walk / Or drop to the ground / “Don’t you understand? I said there’s no work here.” / (To his field companions) “To work, brothers. For us there is nothing but work.” / THE YOUNGER SON In my father’s house, there are no slaves, only servants and sons / In my father’s house, there are no slaves, only servants and sons / I am no longer worthy to be your son / But I could be a paid servant and be treated as one / I will work my way back into your house / I will work my way back into your heart / I am better than this, give me another chance to prove my worth to you
