The Imposters

Villagers



When he arrived he was our truth

He was the answer to our prayers

He was the truth that gave us hope

The one who's there when no one cares

Is he really the one to blame?

Was the truth just a lie that we chose to believe in?

Father Dominic

Who are the imposters here?

We who live our lives deceiving

Hiding from the truths we fear

We are always make-believing

We are caught like captive flies

In this web of lies were weaving

Day by day and year by year

Tell me who are the imposters here

Pierre & Mme de Rols

Who is the impostor here?

There behind a mask he's hiding

Waiting like a mutineer

To destroy the law-abiding

We will send him to his grave

Pierre

Justice is the wave we're riding

Pierre & Mme de Rols

Soon the mask will disappear

Then we'll burn the vile imposter here

The imposter is here

Villagers

The imposters are here!

Father Dominic

The imposters are you and I

Look inside and you'll see

It is we who are dying

Villagers

Who are the imposters here?

Christians who would hunt and seize us

Worshipping the bloodied spear

Killing in the name of Jesus

Only love will see us through

Only faith in you, Lord, frees us/Jesus save us, lead us, free us

Lead us out of mortal fear

Save us from the true imposters here!' The imposters are here!

Prostestants

In their hatred and lies!

Villagers

God knows by daybreak

The judgment will come

Guillaume

And then he'll hang by his neck and I'll watch his face

As he dies, so I'll rise to my rightful place!

Villagers

Let us pray for the day bringing light to the lie

When the truth will shine like the sun in the sky

By that burning star, we'll find out who we are

Who are the imposters here?

Those who live their lives deceiving

Who are the imposters here?

Those who live their lives deceiving

Hiding from the truths they fear

They are always make-believing

They are caught like captive flies

In the web of lies they're weaving

Day by day and year by year

God knows who are the imposters here

Arnaud, Bertrande & Guillaume

She is/You are my life!

Pierre & Mme de Rols

This man will perish for deceiving us

Arnaud, Bertrande & Guillaume

She/He always will be

Pierre & Mme de Rols

Watch him dying in the web of lies he's weaving

Arnaud, Bertrande & Guillaume

Until my dying day

Villagers

The imposter is here

Father Dominic & Protestants

Like a sickening blight

Villagers

The imposter is here

Pierre, Mme de Rols & Guillaume

Like a thief in the night

The whole village

(back in the courtroom)

He is the imposter here!

Judge Coras

Never have I heard such a pitiful case

The law demands dignity, never disgrace

I have every word that you've said, every lie, every grudge

On the word of the fool, there is no case to judge

(The villagers protest vehemently)
