Pallis (Played by Brendon Urie):
I've been tracing your steps,
Along with your dainty, exquisite guest
Across mountain land and serpentine seas
These two have been on quite an odyssey.
You're a fool to think this princess,
Could ever really love a couple of poor boys like us.
She requires riches, recherche
riding with rodomontading roues.

Adakias (Played by Thomas Dutton):
Casanovas have charmed with chiffons, so chichi
Chased her with their conceited coteries.

Princess Anhura (Played by Greta Salpeter):
Maharajas have maliloquently mouthed,
Their love for me through their menagerie

Adakias (Played by Thomas Dutton):
She's been propositioned, propounded by every pompous prince
Given panniers of peerless pears and plums, polished

Princess Anhura (Played by Greta Salpeter):
I've been seduced with shimmering, sparkling stones
Squired by suitors to sizable chateaus

Adakias (Played by Thomas Dutton):
And I'm the one she chose!

Pallis (Played by Brendon Urie):
I understand how you can love a man of truth.
So why don't you just ask him where he spent his youth?
Oh, look at her face!
She really doesn't see that you are from the dark
And you've been lying through your teeth.

Adakias (Played by Thomas Dutton):
Anhura, please listen,
I really can explain.
I meant to tell you sooner, it's been gnawing at my brain.
Now you know the truth, but that knowledge shouldn't change
The nature of our love; We've broken through the chains.

Pallis (Played by Brendon Urie):
I'm sure that she would care to hear your acumen
As to how your presence is the reason she is sick.
But I suppose it's in vain, since her life is ending
When I thrust this blade in,
To her heart a-thumpin'!

Adakias (Played by Thomas Dutton):
Brother, No!

Pallis (Played by Brendon Urie):
Brother, what have I done?
My blade has pierced your side;
This was never my intent
O God, please stay alive!

Adakias (Played by Thomas Dutton):
Dear Pallis, you're my brother, you've tried to protect me.
But your dagger's edge found in my
flesh, it truly was my destiny.

Pallis (Played by Brendon Urie):
Brother I was shortsighted,
I ignored your cries.
You really are the chosen one,
The calculated sacrifice.

Adakias (Played by Thomas Dutton):
Please listen to my last words,
Before I fade away.
This is my gift to you:
Live for your love every day.

Pallis (Played by Brendon Urie):
Please don't let your tired heart stop beating.
You're bleeding.
Just keep breathing.

Adakias (Played by Thomas Dutton):
You will take care of this spinning sphere
I'll disappear and see you in the mirror.

Adakias, Pallis, and Princess Anhura:
Place your hand on mine, one last time, and kiss me goodbye.
Take the love inside my mind, before I die.
Place your hand on mine, one last time, and kiss me goodbye.
Take the love inside my mind.

Adakias (Played by Thomas Dutton):
Before I die.
Please don't cry.

The Narrator (played by Aaron Weiss)
The mountains seceded. The light and dark depleted.
We lost Adakias, but regained our science.
Our world was finally reunited.
So this is my cue of where to leave you.
Now it's your story to retell and pass on.
Because an idea is only relevant if it's being thought upon.
So remember, never surrender.
'Cause the unrelenting constancy of love and hope
Will rescue and restore from any scope.
