In the light of the moon, too soon
In a hot air balloon, he crossed the sea
Once an airship tycoon, turned buffoon
Leaving his home marooned, attempted to flee
The life he's begun.

In the blink of an eye, he spies
The shore where he's fantasized, his baby to be
Turns his gaze to the skies, he cries
Just give me one more try, to chase down my dream
Before I am done.

Unsure from the day, she prays
Hoping their getaway, will still come to be
Watching stars ricochet, she strays
Beyond the alleyway, where no one can see
Not anyone.

In the blink of an eye, she spies
The spot in the foggy skies, she's been longing to see
Camouflaged by the tides, she hides
Where the water and wind collide, she's soon to be free
From what she's begun.

In a hot air balloon
Corrinado flies over the sea
for Leora today
And in one day
He went from his cell to the sky
At his last chance to fly

    General CommentSCENE IV - Hot Air Balloon
    Corrinado embraces Mulberry. He stares in awe at the hot air balloon. The fantastic pipe dream that had become his greatest joy had also led to his persecution. He starts up the engine and takes off, flying over the sea to rescue his beloved Leora. Leora waits lying by the sea on the beach. She frets about whether or not Corrinado has survived As dawn approaches, she sees a speck on the horizon. Corrinado has arrived. He sets his balloon down on the shore. Leora climbs in with him. They take off together, never to be seen by anyone again, flying off into the sunrise.
