Were The World Mine Lyrics [Tanner Cohen]

I see their knavery,
This is to make an ass of me,
To fright me – if they could.
But I will not stir from this place –
do what they can
I will walk up and down here.

And I will sing that they shall hear,
That I am not, I am not afraid,
I am not afraid

I know not by what power I made bold,
But still you flout my insufficient seed
The more my prayer, the lesser is my grace.

My ear should catch your voice; my eye, your eye,
My tongue should catch your tongue, sweet melody,
My tongue your tongue were the world mine

And I will sing that they shall hear
That I am not, I am not afraid,
I am not afraid

Faeries away, fetch me that flower
(up and down and up and down)
I will lead them up and down

Faeries away, swift as a shadow
(up and down and up and down)
I will lead them up and down!

Oh, why rebuke you him that loves you so?
Lay breath so bitter, on your bitter foe
On your bitter foe

What angel wakes me from my flowery bed?
I pray thee gentle mortal sing again –
I pray thee gentle mortal sing, again

Mine ear is much enamored of thy note
So is mine eye enthralled to thy shape
I’ll follow thee
I’ll follow thee
and make a heaven of hell

I’ll follow thee
I’ll follow thee
And make a heaven of hell
[And make a heaven of hell]

(Faeries away, fetch me that flower
up and down and up and down
I will lead them up and down)

(Faeries away, swift as a shadow
up and down and up and down
I will lead them up and down!)

(Faeries away, fetch me that flower
up and down and up and down
I will lead them up and-)

(Faeries away, swift as a shadow
up and down and up and down
I will lead them up and down!)

[My ear should catch your voice,
My eye should catch your eye,
My tongue your tongue were the world mine]

We follow
Darkness

All Things Shall Be Peace

CHORUS:
Over hill, over dale,
Thorough bush, thorough brier,
Over park, over pale,
Thorough flood, thorough fire

MS. TEBBIT(spoken):
I do wander everywhere,
Swifter than the moon’s sphere
(sung)
What have we done?
We have mistaken quite,
And laid the love juice
on some true love’s sight

Thieves of love,
We’ve come by night,
And stolen lovers’ hearts
Away in spite

TIMOTHY (spoken):
Let me go.
Let me go!

MS. TEBBIT:
The will of man is by your reason swayed,
With such force and blessed power,
With all good will,
With all my heart
All things shall be peace

TIMOTHY:
And so far blameless proves my enterprise
That I have ‘nointed those poor souls’ eyes
MS. TEBBIT (spoken):
Think of your friends,
Your family
TIMOTHY (spoken):
No!
(Sung)
And so far am I glad it so did sort,
As this their jangling I esteem a sport

CHORUS:
The will of man is by your reason swayed,
With such force and blessed power,
With all good will,
With all my heart,
All things shall be peace

MS. TEBBIT (echoed by CHORUS):
We fairies
That do run
From the presence
Of the sun
We follow
Darkness
Like a Dream
CHORUS:
Be as thou wast wont to be
See as thou wast wont to see
MS. TEBBIT:
Like a dream
CHORUS:
Be as thou wast wont to be,
See as thou wast wont to see,
TIMOTHY (spoken):
You rent our ancient love asunder.
CHORUS:
Be as thou wast wont to be,
See as thou wast wont to see,
Be as thou wast wont to be,
TIMOTHY:
Take comfort, he no more shall see my face,
CHORUS:
See as thou wast wont to see,
TIMOTHY:
Whom I do love and will do till my death,
CHORUS:
Be as thou wast wont to be,
See as thou wast wont to see,
Be as thou wast wont to be,
See as thou wast wont to see,
Be as thou wast wont to be,
See as thou wast wont to see,
Be as thou wast wont to be,
See as thou wast wont to see

MS. TEBBIT (spoken):
I have a device to make all well.
Crush this herb into the lover’s eyes,
Whose liquor hath this virtuous property,
To take from thence all error with their might,
And make their eyeballs roll with wonted sight,
When they next wake, all this derision,
Shall seem a dream and fruitless vision,
Don’t haste, get to the play tonight
And with some luck there, all things shall be right

TIMOTHY (spoken):
I swear to thee by Cupid’s strongest bow,
By all the vows that ever men have broke,
CHORUS;
All things shall be peace
TIMOTHY (spoken):
I’ll be there.
CHORUS:
All things shall be peace
All things shall be peace
All things shall be peace

 
Zelda Williams -Pyramus and Thisby-
Gentles, perchance you wonder at this show;
But wonder on, till truth make all things plain.
This man is Pyramus, if you would know;
This beauteous lady Thisby is certain.

By moonshine did these lovers think no scorn
Met at a tomb to woo by pale moonlight.
This grisly beast, which Lion hight by name,
The trusty Thisby, coming first by night,
Did scare away, or rather did affright…

If we offend, we’ve got good will,
If we are crude, our measure’s plain
Our true intent is your delight
It’s merry, tragical and brief…
Oh Pyramus…Pyramus…loved Thisby

And as she fled, her mantle she did fall,
Which Lion vile with bloody mouth did stain,
Anon comes Pyramus, sweet youth and tall,
And finds his trusty Thisby’s mantle slain,
Da da da da da da da da da da

Whereat with blade, with bloody blameful blade,
He bravely broach’d his boiling bloody breast,
Thus he died,
He died, he died,
His soul in the sky…

Now Thisby’s passion ends the play in tears,
Asleep, my dear?
What, dead, my dove? Arise!
Tongue, not a word,
Come, blade, my breast imbrue,

Thus Thisby ends, adieu, adieu,
Adieu, adieu, adieu, adieu, adieu, adieu, adieu,

If we offend, we’ve got good will,
If we are crude, our measure’s plain
Our true intent is your delight
It’s merry, tragical and brief…
Oh Pyramus…Pyramus…loved Thisby
Da da da da da da da da da da
Oh Pyramus…Pyramus…loved Thisby
