The nature of the beast
[Swallow]
It seems to me you waited till the time came
I believe, you returned for us at last
It seems to me you tested me so many ways
I believe, every test I passed
It seems to me that every test I passed
[The Man]
If you go deep down inside my eye's, do you see a saviour, a prophet or even a priest?
Or do you only see the blackness there, that's the nature of the beast
The one that you should fear the most, may be the ones you fear the least
If you know me then you have to know, the nature of the beast

There are hungry devils everywhere, it's on my heart they feast
Let me rise above the carcass of this all too mortal beast
If I had the chance I'd fly away, I'd see myself released
I'd fly above the carcass of this poor, pathetic beast
[Swallow]
I don't know why you try to make me doubt you
I don't know why when I believe my spirit so
Some day soon, they'll no longer threaten you
Till that day all my prayers are yours
Until then, all my prayers are yours
[The Man]
The things that you despise the most maybe the ones that can stand the least
There are lots of things you've yet to learn about the nature of the beast
There's always wars and plagues and death, the terrors have never ceased
There's nothing you or I can do about the nature of the beast
[Swallow]
I'm not afraid, you taught me that
[The Man]
You fool why can't you see
[Swallow]
I'm not listening to a word you say, It was God sent you to me
[The Man]
What's the only sound left in this world, when every other sound has ceased?
It's the breathing in and the breathing out
It's still, it's still, in me
It's still the nature of the beast

There are hungry devils everywhere, it's on my heart they feast
Let me rise above the carcass of this pitiable beast
If I had the chance I'd fly away, I'd see my soul released
I'd fly above the carcass of the nature of the beast
[Swallow]
There's a prayer for the lost and for the lonely
There's a prayer to make the blind one's see
But if you, you are not what you must be
Then it's true you haven't got a prayer for me
And I, I haven't got a prayer:.. I have nothing
[The Man]
So many things in your life that your bound to regret
Why didn't I do this? Why didn't I do that?
So many chances you've lost that you'll never forget

So many unspoken vows, so many unopened doors
So many unbroken chains, so many unsettled scores
Why didn't I take it? Why didn't I make it come true?
[Swallow]
No one's ever looked at me
[Swallow & The Man]
No one's ever looked at me
The way your looking at me now


The mob arrive outside the barn. The children block the entrance and the man
hears them. Cornered and with no way out the man pulls out the gun and grabs
swallow as his hostage. He changes his mind and pushes her out of the barn,
closing the door behind her. He pours gasoline around the barn and lights a
match.
The barn bursts into flames with the man still inside it.
The scene moves to the barn after the fire has burnt out. Amos finally
catches up with Swallow. Boone tells her that the man in the barn was not
Jesus. Amos tells her he did not tell anyone about the man in her barn.
The sheriff tells them that the man has gone, there was not a trace of him in
the barn.
Poor baby & Brat sing
"The thunder is rolling, the sky is black
It's gotten so dark somehow
He said there'll be trouble, but I know he'll be back
And I hope that he's home by now
He should have been home by now"
Brat asks Swallow "he's free now, isn't he?"
Swallow replies "He'll be back, I just know he will"
Brat tells how he preyed for a Christmas bonfire and got the biggest one of
all.
Swallow, Boone, Brat and Poor Baby stand in the remains of the burnt out barn
and sing Whistle down the wind...
