these are the original scratch notes I make when working the rhythms out while writing a song. This is all subject to change, and the full script will be available in the final version.
Bailiff: All Rise for the honorable Magistrate Lord Witherow as he prepares to issue the verdict in the trial of the wicked Sebastian for high crimes against Lake Panic
The Jury: What kind of court is this? The verdict comes first?
So this it?
This is the process?
I get no defense?
What will happen to me?
I don't get these trials
You haven't got much chance
But you will get a brief defense
After the sentence
Magistrate Lord Witherow:
In judging the case of the wicked cruelty of Sebastian, addressing his alleged crimes of aggressive intent against Lake Panic, I find him guilty of all such charges and sentence him to death.
What kind of court is this? This ain't a fair trial.
Solicitor Proton (presenting the prosecution's arguments)
He's bad / He's Guilty x4
(that) He's bad
i am before you
in humble judgment
lend me your ear
they came to my peaceful home
and seized my love, and took her here
and if you were in my hooves
and the same thing happened to you
if they took your love so true
you do the same fuckin thing too!
We find the defendant innocent of the crime, of the crime, of the crime
What kind of court is this? Its just a recommendation? What?
Magistrate Lord Witherow: The recommendation is rejected. The sentence now applies to the jury, and they too shall share Sebastian's fate.
