Choir: Give us the doctor
Give us the rope

Give us his hands
Give us his feet
Give us the doctor
Give us the rope

Give us a grave
Give us a shovel
Give us a marker
Give us the doctor

Give us the rope
Give us the doctor

Give us the rope

    General CommentWhen I hear this song, I see the following in my head:
    The judge bangs his gavel, and Dr. Light is escorted out of the courthouse by Wily's robots. As the clarinet (?) plays, bystanders gawk and gossip at the defeated-looking man led by in shackles, head hanging, tears in his eyes. The courthouse door creaks as it opens, and a furious mob is seen outside, screaming for blood.

    The mob is barely held off by Light's robot escort, and the good doctor is brought to a truck and driven to a train while Light has to hear the taunts and jeers of the city Wily has turned completely against him. I imagine that the robot escort continuously reassures Dr. Light, "We have control. We keep you safe. We are your hope. We are in control." But maybe that's too much.

    This song blends seamlessly into How the World Fell Under Darkness, which starts with the sounds of a rail car coming in behind the music, which is why I imagine that Light is taken to a train station before heading to the prison.
