14. The Visitation (3:27)
I’m down here on my knees
Feeling the weight of shame
How could I have done this
To you, my son?

I can’t believe my eyes
Is it really you?
Why should I forgive you
After all you’ve done?

I was driven and blind
Not so unlike yourself
We can still work together
If you allow me

Why should I give you a chance?
Why should I trust you now?
Ha… I bet you are helpless
Without me

If we join our minds
Then together we can do this

[Father and Prodigy:]
We both want to be the first
We both want to change the world

We can work all night
'Til we find out what the truth is

[Father and Prodigy:]
We’ll solve this mystery
Be a part of history

I’m so damn close

I’ll fill in the blanks

I could use a hand

Just give me this chance

[Prodigy and Father:]
For we’re on the verge of a breakthrough

The meds help me not to sleep

It's too late to stop now

I'll take just a few more

Just 'til the answer is found

[Prodigy and Father:]
We can make it,
We'll find the truth

Let’s join our minds
It’s our destiny to do this
We’re going to be the first
We’re going to change the world

We’ll work all night
'Til we find out what the truth is
We both know we’ll never sleep
'Til we make this quantum leap
We are in this way too deep
