Hymn Of The Hanged Lyrics

2017 West End
The Grinning Man the musical - Hymn Of The Hanged Lyrics

TRELAW
Don’t give up
Don’t lose hope
Don’t lay your head on the ground

GRINPAYNE (spoken)
You’re dead!

TRELAW
Find your strength
Find your way
Fight ‘til the right way is found

GRINPAYNE (spoken)
I can’t!

TRELAW
Look at my eyes, they are lifeless dry
But the cause that I fought for refuses to die
I lived by the sword and I died by the rope
But stronger than both is the spirit of hope

Fight for this child that you found in the snow
Fight ‘til your bodies are home
Each rasping breath beats your battle with death
Don’t let your brave little souls be ripped from a world
Hearts full of dreams
Aching to make them come true
Search for the cause that your little heart needs
To fight for the life within you
Fight!

GRINPAYNE
There is blood in my nightmares

TRELAW
Fight!

GRINPAYNE
My heart screams of unspeakable monsters

TRELAW
Fight!

GRINPAYNE
You may strip all the stars from the sky

TRELAW
Fight!

GRINPAYNE
But I know that I don’t want to die

TRELAW
Fight!

GRINPAYNE
I vow to remember my mother
I promise to fight for the life of this child
And by the laws of every land
And the shame of my disgrace
I vow to find and kill the man who crucified my face
(spoken) Help! Help us!

URSUS (spoken)
But who would hear his cries at this hour, in this storm?

GRINPAYNE
Help!

URSUS
For certain, it would be no man…
