What's Still Unwritten…Song of Illusia

Callisto:
Xena be warned, Xena beware
By closing your eyes you can see what isn't there
Xena be calm, open your eyes
Lies may be truth and truth may be lies
Fate is a wheel, it will reveal
All you've become, all that you feel
Destiny knows what has to be
You'll pay the price, nothing is free
I'll be your guide, take the hand of your muse
You just might lose your way in the land of Illusia
Illusia is music, a world built on rhyme
It's carved out of space in the absence of time
You've tasted how evil and good coexist,
The bitter and sweet of it


White Dog:
All in the lips that you kissed… ahhh


Callisto:
Lion and bull, eagle and snake
To live or die
It's a choice you've got to make
Can you undo what you create
Step through the wheel
Follow your fate


Chorus of Animals:
The fates have a fix on you
We can play tricks on you
We deal in truths you're too troubled to face
Gamble the worth of you, on the rebirth of you
Don't turn away, don't start to fade
What's still unwritten…
You can erase


Callisto:
Your villainous infamy tortures your soul
Decent into evil must levy its toll
The darkness that rots you had brought you to this


Snake:
Surrender serenity, suffer sweet misery
Sin seeks its cursed abyss


Anubis:
Oh Xena, with death there's always rebirth


Sphinx:
Come see with a vision denied you on earth


Callisto:
Illusia is waiting – we'll show you the way
But all consequences are your own creation
And there's a price you must pay


Callisto and Chorus of Animals:
The fates have a fix on you,
We can play tricks on you
We deal in truths you're too troubled to face
Gamble the worth of you, on the rebirth of you
Don't turn away, don't start to fade


Callisto:
What's still unwritten you can erase


Chorus of Animals:
Illusia is music, a world built on rhyme
It's carved out of space in the absence of…

War and Peace

Warriors:
Praise the winds of chance that blew
Xena's back where friends are true
We would fight to death for you, brave Xena
When your mighty chakram arcs
Throwing fierce magnetic sparks
No one ever hits her marks like Xena
Famed for prowess with a sword
Who's as feared and as adored
You've not lived till you've been gored by Xena

Warrior #1:
You're the Warrior Princess
who's as strong as an oak

Warrior #2:
You've got eyes that can tear out
the heart of a bloke

Warrior #3:
With one look you can wilt a flower

Warrior #4:
curdle milk or make men cower

All Warriors:
Welcome home, Xena, welcome home

Ares:
You are the most divine, delicious warrior
A man can't help saluting your return
And if you stop my heart
it's just the way you slash and burn
Bewitching woman straining at the armor plate
You singe me with the ardor you inflame
And in my carnal heart
there's not a sorry shred of shame

All Warriors:
You and me love war
Doesn't matter what it's for
Pandemonium reigns and we're bludgeoning brains
Give us War, War, War
Keep it down to a roar

Warrior #5:
Words of wisdom Ares said

Ares:
When in battle keep your head

All Warriors:
Warriors love War, War, War

Villagers:
O'er the Bridge of Tears
She's crossed and she's paid a fearful cost
Her blood innocence is lost, Gabrielle
Now the past has set her free
And she's traveled home to be
With her old friends you and me, Gabrielle

Villager #1:
You've been plucked out from
the heart of our lives for so long

Villager #2:
Now we're grateful
you've come back to the place you belong

Villager #3:
For what ails the panacea

Villager #4:
surely waits in Poteidia

All Villagers:
Welcome home, Gabrielle, welcome home

Lila:
Villains, fools and kings
have made their mark on you
Leave their easy evil in the dust
If your child had lived
we'd surely make her welcom too

All Villagers:
You and me love peace
with the ducks and goats and geese
While the hours away baking bread, pitching hay
We love peace, peace, peace
simple joys that never cease

Villager #1:
Nothing changes but the time

Small Group of Villagers:
We don't even change our minds

All Villagers:
Villagers love peace, peace, peace

Ares:
Pulverizing foes requires strategy
There's no mortal born who meets your skill
Xena join my vision – don't deny your destiny

All Warriors:
You and me love war
Doesn't matter what it's for

Warrior #6:
Chop the tree down, burn the root

Ares:
Vengeance can be such a hoot

All Warriors:
War, War, War

Lila:
Xena was no friend, she worked to twist your mind
Though you tried to change her deadly ways
Take the scythe – it's just in case of killing to be kind

All Villagers:
You and me love peace
with the ducks and goats and geese

Lila:
Sit and watch the world go by

Villager Couple:
Vegetate until you die

All Villagers:
Villagers love Peace, Peace, Peace

Warriors:
We love War
Villagers:
Peace is such a lovely state…
War can kill so you can hate

Warriors:
Fear! Lies! Smite and smote and pulverize

Villagers:
Here the simple life's a delight

Warriors:
Pus and gore
Villagers:
Just you put your hand in mine
Sure your future's on the line

Warriors:
You've a son you must avenge
Know you must extract revenge
Villagers:
You must know that when

Warriors:
Don't be put aside by beauty,
Xena you must do your duty

Villagers:
Hope died she freed you

All Voices:
Ah ah ah, ah ah ah ah ah…
Ah ah ah, ah ah ah ah ah…

Villagers:
Peace!

Warriors:
War!

Villagers:
Peace!

Warriors:
War!

Melt Into Me

Ares:
You're lost and confused, but I understand
This once beloved friend has been slain by your hand
You feel all alone, betrayed and adrift
But maybe her loss can be viewed as agift

Now I'll be your rock, your strength and support
Your close confidant with whom you can consort
I know you completely
Come melt into me
Unleash the power of your destiny

You've proved to yourself now that you've made the kill
That you're just like me
With as evil a will
Our forces are meant to be merged into one
The world will be panicked when our work is done

Let the music of war, with its lustful refrain
Arouse us to heights with a passionate strain

Imagine how awesome together we'd be
So feel what I'm feeling
Come melt into me

Callisto:
Did that fill you with glee
To kill your little friend
Did that ease your suffering
Or bring it to an end
Let go…
All of your anger will poison you yet
Unless you can just – let go


Ares:
Nothing more need be said, ding dong, the bitch is dead.

Hearts are Hurting Part One

Xena:
My heart is hurting beyond words
The pain is tearing up my soul
These days have seen my spirit die
My life propelled out of control
My wounds lie naked to the world
My depth of suffering exposed
This damaged past can never heal
Until this nightmare book is closed

Gabrielle:
My heart is hurting beyond words
The pain is tearing up my soul
Please tell me how can I retrieve
The life that all this sadness stole
Because of you this happened
Because you had to carry out
Your vengeful little plans

Xena:
It's you who should feel guilty
Because of you my child is dead
His blood is on your hands

Gabrielle:
If only you had never brought me there

Xena:
If only you had done what you were told

Gabrielle:
It's you who's to be blamed

Xena:
And you should be ashamed

Gabrielle:
It's your fault

Xena:
No, it's yours

Gabrielle:
How could you

Xena:
How could you

Gabrielle:
It's your fault

Xena:
No, it's your fault

Hate Is The Star... Song of Torment

It begins very small
Seems like nothing much at all
Just a germ, just a speck, just a grain
But the seed has been sown
And before you know it's grown
It has spread through your life like a stain
And its power will strangle your love and your joy
And its hunger consumes for it lives to destroy

Hate is the star, it becomes who you are
Not the hated but the hater
Has the torment that's greater
It will eat you alive, consume you and spit you out
Hate's gonna win, that there's no doubt about
Hate doesn't care who you are – Hate Is The Star!

Learning hate is an art
Even people who are smart
Can be caught, can be crushed can be creamed
Hate has swallowed you whole
Did you think you're in control
Hate you thought, hate you spoke, hate you dreamed
All your hate gave me substance
Your lives are undone
It's your eve of destruction, your hatred has won!

Hearts are Hurting Part Two

Xena:
I never dreamed that we'd be distanced by a hate
That all the trust we had would go

Gabrielle:
How could I hate you

Xena:
How could it come to pass
This awful twist of fate

Gabrielle:
How could I hurt you

Xena:
This madness can't be so

Gabrielle:
I can't believe it

Xena:
I never dreamed that any barriers could rise

Gabrielle:
Or that I'd ever see the stranger in your eyes

Xena:
Our hearts were hurting both the same

Gabrielle:
The hurt was tearing up our souls

Xena:
The fury in us made us blind

Gabrielle:
We could not see beyond the pain

Xena:
If we can turn again to love

Gabrielle:
If we can heal these open wounds

Xena:
We'll leave this hatred far behind

Gabrielle:
So not a trace of hate remains

Both:
We'll overcome our damaged past
And we'll grow stronger side by side
To stand together through the storms
We're safe 'cause love will be our guide

The Love of Your Love

Yes I lied
Thought I could protect you from the truth
Deliver you from evil
Spare your innocence and youth
That I could simply will it
Was the real untruth
I was wrong
I wore a mask to cover my deceit
But underneath it all
I couldn't keep away my doubt
Now I'm left without a mask
And one question left to ask
I'm sorry, please help me, forgive me
Don't hate me, don't leave me, forgive me
Forgive me my debt as only you could
Forgive me the hate
Replace evil with good
Forgive me and find out that you
Will be able to forgive yourself too
My dear Solon,
I never told you that you were my son
I didn't know the days we had left were so few
If I only knew, I'd have been with you
I'm so sorry
I couldn't be the mother you deserved
And I regret that I missed your first step, your first word
That I never heard - - now it seems absurd
Can you forgive me
Open up your heart and let me in
No matter if the Fates against us turn
There's one thing through all of this I've learned
That what I need from you is to…
Forgive me, I'm sorry, believe me
Stop hating, stop hurting, forgive me
Forgive those who harm you
Do good for those who hate
Forgive, if not forget
I know it's not too late
Forgive me and you'll discover too
That the love of your love is you
