I'm Alive Lyrics

5. I'm Alive (11:13)
...and at last before my eyes,
no longer alone, I realize.
There are tracks on the sand,
someone else has come before me -
making plans for this land,
laying claims that are not mine!

Through the trees I see him kneeling,
and he looks to me like Christ.
Gethsemane crosses my mind,
but the doubter here is me -
Can it be? Can it be the truth before me, all the while?
Can it be? Can it be the Pilot lost from the Mercy Childe?

(PILOT:)
Now my Captain now you see the truth;
I am alive, I am alive!
The pilot charts were left for you to find your way
To my side, I am alive!

(CAPTAIN:)
How are you here, O my pilot?
You cost me my command -
And the Mercy Childe is lost!

(PILOT:)
This doesn't matter now,
let the cares escape your mind
the never-ending is your home now,
forever - Eleutheria...

Your Mercy Childe has gone,
and so too flies your duty and your charge.
You shall live in this land now,
The quiet shores, forever - Eleutheria...

(CAPTAIN:)
I don't understand, your words confuse my mind.
This land is now the King's domain,
The other constraints compromised.
I will commandeer your vessel,
Return to serve my oath,
Build a second, better crew -
And lead them back to colonize...

(PILOT:)
My friend you have not understood,
Freedom is not a boon to man.
There will never be a ruler here,
But you and I can share this land.

(CAPTAIN:)
You talk and talk at me Pilot,
And you begin to test my nerves,
Captains give commands -
Pilots serve!

So this land is yours?
Well I say it's mine!
Many resources so rich and grown...
I must bring him word,
what I've witnessed here
Mighty King and countrymen at home...

(CAPTAIN:)
You owe it to our struggling nation...

(PILOT:)
I owe nothing to the lives of men.

(CAPTAIN:)
You cannot stop progress Pilot!

(PILOT:)
But I will stop you if I can...

(CAPTAIN:)
if I can!

(COUNCILMAN:)
...Captain? Are you still with us, Captain? Why is it that you've stopped speaking? You are in a public hearing for your own defense this morning, and neither His Majesty, not this Court - are in an obliging mood. You've returned to us empty-handed, and although your claims of mutiny have been delivered with passion - they do not persuade us. You'd best think carefully about what you have to say in your defense - for your very life is at stake...

(CAPTAIN:)
Thank you, my lord, for your learned advice - but I am aware of the stakes involved in this hearing. I must admit, it is this part of my tale that is most difficult to tell, for - you see, despite my best efforts to convince the Pilot he wouldn't concede. He claimed that the new land was to remain virgin, unused and primitive, and our argument reached a fevered pitch. He was speaking treason my lord, and - God help me - with a stone from the river, I - brought him down. My God, I killed the Pilot. But I tell you now Councilmen - I did this in defense of His Majesty's regal claims... Listen to me - for there is none more faithful than myself. I have ever worked to serve this land, and my lord the King, and to that end I have brought the proof that will both exonerate me, and lead our Nation back... Do you see? Do you see them? These are the Charts! And I understand them now! Believe me, Council - grant me a ship, and I will find the way. The land is there, the land is there - it's for us now! These charts are a map to Paradise! Believe me when I tell you, the stars will connect - we'll find the way - the passage opens the Sea - the Second Sea...

Ad lib.
