SKEPTIC:
Hey!
Are we ever going to find.. this...
"Heartland"?
LEADER:
WORRY NOT, My friends... for the Heartland is not far off...
And how will we know when we found the heartland?
{music begins}
LEADER:
{singing} Oh when we find The Heartland, we'll feel it deep in our bones
We'll know it's there and we won't care what put us on the road.
All that happened in the past are lessons learned and now we know that
when we step into the heartland we've seen the end of our woes.
THE PEOPLE:
And we say in the Heartland men are free!
Free to live responsibly!
And for all those who disagree
We'll stop their hearts entirely
{grunting}
LEADER:
Oh when we find the Heartland we'll have to raise the stakes.
{unknown}:
Well...
First I'll arrange the carriages into a little makeshift stage
{unknown}:
OK
LEADER:
and if there is a man who would try to hold us back,
{unknown}:
Yeah?
LEADER:
I'd stick a stake into his face and push until I push through neck.
{unknown}:
Ah-ah...
LEADER:
Oh when we find the Heartland we have to start anew
and all we've learned from scorn and spurn should show in what we do.
All we've learned from scorn and spurn
and all the pain and all the hurt
is when we step into the Heartland that pain must never return.
THE PEOPLE:
But we say in the Heartland fight with us!
Unite behind what's right with us!
Ride on through the night with us!
And if you don't we'll knife your guts.
{more grunting}
{music changes style}
{unknown}:
A Fable:
There once-a was a donkey king, behind him sat his two sons.
To each he bequeathed a crown as gifts with spices and barrels of rum.
Said one son to the next "I say! Your stack is bigger than mine!"
The king said only an ass would think to measure his brother's supply."
{music returns to original style}
THE PEOPLE:
I don't think I even get that,
but I don't buy that for a second!
And you must be working with them!
Because why else would you say that?
What a time to go against us!
What a time to go and test us!
Oh I think we got the message,
Now we can give you a message:
OH BY GOD, THE HEARTLAND STARTS,
WHEN WE BUILD IT ON YOUR GRAVE!
{unknown}:
YEAH!
