Asylum Song Lyrics
What's your business here?
We are representatives of Sir Percival Glyde
We're here to see Anne Cattrick.
I feel so nervous
You've been so brave
There is something
I must say to you
Something i've held deep inside for so long
Only one of you
(the woman leads marian through the patients in the asylum to Anne)
You can have five minutes
Not that you'll get much sense from her
(marian approaches anne)
(Marian realizes that it is infact her sister Laura and not Anne Cattrick)
How can this be?
They held me down and drugged me
They dressed me in Anne's clothing
I was sure I heard some screaming
But they told me I was dreaming!
They brought me here that evening
Underneath a cloud of darkness
Though I told them who I was
There was no one who believed me!
Then it was Anne they buried
Claiming it was you!
There isn't time now
We must get out of here!
We've got to stop Glyde before he gets away!
I will redeem this pledge
Marian I don't understand!
What have they done to Anne!
Oh Laura I am so sorry!
Anne Cattrick is dead!
I believe they killed her
And put you in this asylum in her place
Please God No!
Laura I am so sorry
Then her secret has gone with her to the grave!
We musn't think about this now
We have to get you to safety
But we must know her secret
We have to go to Limmeridge
We are but three miles away
And your uncle knows more than he's admitting
It's time for him to tell the truth!
