A Dueteronomic Descant

Then Caprice was led by the Dementor into the desert to be tempted by Azazel. After meandering forty days and forty nights, Caprice became lost in the wilderness.

Lo and behold, Azazel, the Demonic Spirit of the Desert Wilderness, sauntered up to Caprice and said, "If you are up for a little Gamboling, let us sing a Spirited Duet."

Caprice answered, "The Music Man does not live on high school productions alone, but on every Theater of the Muse."

Then Azazel and Caprice assumed their places upon a rocky ledge on high, overlooking the Wikisphere.

"If you are truly Caprice the Flying Goat," intoned Azazel, "let us soar with wings of song."

And so Caprice and Azazel crooned their impassioned duet, as it was written and recorded in streaming audio, with lyrics by Pat Humphries and Barsoom Tork Associates.

And lo the audience joined in and each sang whichever verses it pleased them to harmonize with, for as it is written, "It is our choices that reveal our true character, far more than our clever abilities."

Slouching To the Darker Side
  
Chorus: Chorus:
We are living 'neath the great Big Dipper We are entangled with The Big Bamboozler
We are washed by the very same rain We are dashed by the very same rain
We are swimming in the stream together We are drowning in the stream together
Some in power and some in pain Some in power and some in pain
We can worship this ground we walk on We can defile this site we post on
Cherishing the beings that we live beside Crushing the beings that we view in snide
Loving spirits will live forever Troubled spirits will dwell forever
We're all Swimming to the Other Side We're all Slouching to the Darker Side
   
I am alone and I am searching I am alone and I am lurching
Hungering for answers in my time Pumping Adrenalin in my grime
I am balanced at the brink of wisdom I am balanced at the brink of failure
I'm impatient to receive a sign I'm impatient to commit a slime
I move forward with my senses open I reel backward with my senses gobsmacked
Imperfection it be my crime Indignation it be my crime
In humility I will listen, In arrogance I will blather,
We're all Swimming to the Other Side We're all Slouching to the Darker Side
   
Chorus Chorus
  
On this journey through thoughts and feelings On this travail through myths and passions
Binding intuition my head, my heart Blind to intuition, my head, it hurts
I am gathering the tools together I am gathering the phools together
I'm preparing to do my part I'm conspiring to play my part
All of those who have come before me All of those who have succumbed before me
Band together to be my guide Band together to be my guide
Loving lessons that I will follow Goading lessons that I will follow
We're all Swimming to the Other Side We're all Slouching to the Darker Side
 
Chorus Chorus
  
When we get there we'll discover When we get there we'll discover
All of the gifts we've been given to share All of the gibes we've been given to snerk
Have been with us since life's beginning and Have been with us since life's beginning and
We never noticed they were there We never noticed we were jerks
We can balance at the brink of wisdom We can totter at the brink of ruin
Never recognizing that we've arrived Never realizing how far we've dived
Loving spirits will live forever Troubled spirits will dwell forever
We're all Swimming to the Other Side We're all Slouching to the Darker Side
   
Chorus Chorus
