The Light Princess Musical - The Solution Lyrics

Song was written by Tori Amos and Samuel Adamson.

King Darius:     
Name? 

Mr Flowers:
Zachary Flowers: throughbred Lagobellan.
And I have a cure, sir.

King Darius:
Premature,  sir,
I want your diagnosis first. 

Mr Flowers:
Poppy seeds with sage and thyme,
Don’t resist, inhale the fumes.
There-there, baby, no big crime:
You ate too many magic shrooms.
Heartbeat slows –

King Darius: I’m uneasy – 

Mr Flowers: – vision blurs –

King Darius:
– he’s so sleazy – 

Mr Flowers:
–    speech sluuuurrrrs.
Eyelids heavy, body queasy,
Drowsy, dozy, fuzzy-wuzzy,
Down

King Darius:     
Down?       

Serjeant-at-Arms:
Down      

All:     
Down...

King Darius:         
You’ve done it, man.
Why is she floating?

Servants:
Floating, floating, floating like a
Wafting ginger freak with a ginger beak.

King Darius:
Name?

Mr Crabbe:
Octavius Crabbe: thoroughbred Lagobellan –

Althea:
I’ve found the Lake that gives us life.  

Mr Crabbe:   
I have a cure, I can fix her.

King Darius:
How dare you?
Give me your diagnosis first.

Mr Crabbe:
Crème brûlée and lard and bread,
Doughnuts, pasta, syllabub.
Girls like you are underfed,
They need some fat, now eat your grub.
Tummy bloats –

King Darius:
I’m uneasy –  

Mr Crabbe:
– breathing slows –

King Darius:
– he’s so cheesy –  

Mr Crabbe:
– gout grrrroooows.
Eyelids heavy, body queasy,
Glutted, sated, chocka-blocka,
Down –

King Darius:     
Down?

Serjeant-at-Arms:
Down –      

All:
Down...

King Darius:    
You’ve done it, sir.
Why is she floating?

Servants:    
Floating, floating,
floating like a
Mutant bird-girl glitch;
she’s a puking witch.

Mr Grey:    
Y-Y-Y-Y-

King Darius:    
Come to the point, sir!
I just need your cure, sir!

Mr Grey:    
L-love, your majesty.

King Darius:    
My girl, you’ve gone too far,
Who do you think you are?
I have my own solution –
I’ll cure you, Althea.

Serjeant-at-Arms:    
Did he say the dungeon?

Servants:    
The dungeon.
He has his own solution,
He has his own so –
