Here is the church
And here is the steeple
Open the doors and see all the people
Close the doors and listen to them pray
Open the doors and the all walk away

“They” by Jem

Who made up all the rules
We follow them like fools
Believe them to be true
Don’t care to think them through

And I’m sorry, so sorry
I’m sorry it’s like this
I’m sorry, so sorry
I’m sorry, we do this

And it’s ironic too
‘Coz what we tend to do
Is act on what they say
And then it is that way

And I’m sorry, so sorry
I’m sorry it’s like this
I’m sorry, so sorry
I’m sorry, we do this

Who are they?
And where are they?
And how can they possibly
Know all this?

Who are they?
And where are they?
And how can they possibly
Know all this?

Do you see what I see?
Why do we live like this?
Is it because it’s true
That ignorance is bliss?

Who are they?
And where are they?
And how do they
Know all this?

And I’m sorry, so sorry
I’m sorry it’s like this

Do you see what I see?
Why do we live like this?
Is it because it’s true
That ignorance is bliss?

And who are they?
And where are they?
And how can they
Know all this?

And I’m sorry, so sorry
I’m sorry we do this

“All These Lives” by Daughtry

Doesn’t come down when she calls
“It’s time for breakfast.”
Mama can’t get down those halls
Fast enough to see

Glass is sprayed across the floor
From the broken window
She can’t breathe anymore
Can’t deny what we know

They’re gonna find you, just believe
You’re not a person; you’re a disease

All these lives that you’ve been taking
Deep inside, my heart is breaking
Broken homes from separation
Don’t you know it’s violation?
It’s so wrong, but you’ll see
Never gonna let you take my world from me
The world outside these walls may know you’re breathing
But you ain’t comin’ in

(But you ain’t comin’ in)

Posters hung on building walls
Of missing faces
Months go by without the calls
The clues, or traces

They’re gonna find you, just believe
You’re not a person; you’re a disease

All these lives that you’ve been taking
Deep inside, my heart is breaking
Broken homes from separation
Don’t you know it’s violation?
It’s so wrong, but you’ll see
Never gonna let you take my world from me
The world outside these walls may know you’re breathing
But you ain’t comin’ in

Shed the light on all the ones who never thought they would become
A father, mother, asking why this world can be so cold

Doesn’t come down when she calls
“It’s time for breakfast.”
The memories begin to fall
She asks, “When will I be free?”

All these lives that you’ve been taking
Deep inside, my heart is breaking
Broken homes from separation
Don’t you know it’s violation?
It’s so wrong, but you’ll see
Never gonna let you take my world from me
The world outside these walls may know you’re breathing
But you ain’t comin’ in

All these lives that you’ve been taking
Deep inside, my heart is breaking
All these lives that you’ve been taking
Deep inside, my heart is breaking
All these lives that you’ve been taking
Deep inside, my heart is breaking
The world outside these walls may know you’re breathing
The world outside these walls may know you’re breathing
But you ain’t comin’ in

“Never Too Late” by Three Days Grace

This world will never be
What I expected
And if I don’t belong
Who would have guessed it?
I will not leave alone
Everything that I own
To make you feel like it’s not too late
It’s never too late

Even if I say
It’ll be alright
Still I hear you say
You want to end your life
Now and again we try
To just stay alive
Maybe we’ll turn it all around
‘Cause it’s not too late
It’s never too late

No one will ever see
This side reflected
And if there’s something wrong
Who would have guessed it?
And I have left alone
Everything that I own
To make you feel like
It’s not too late
It’s never too late

Even if I say
It’ll be alright
Still I hear you say
You want to end your life
Now and again we try
To just stay alive
Maybe we’ll turn it all around
‘Cause it’s not too late
It’s never too late

The world we knew
Won’t come back
The time we’ve lost
Can’t get it back
The life we had
Won’t be ours again

This world will never be
What I expected
And if I don’t belong

Even if I say
It’ll be alright
Still I hear you say
You want to end your life
Now and again we try
To just stay alive
Maybe we’ll turn it all around
‘Cause it’s not too late
It’s never too late
Maybe we’ll turn it all around
‘Cause it’s not too late
It’s never too late (It’s never too late)
It’s not too late
It’s never too late

“It’s the Hard-Knock Life” from Annie

[ORPHANS]
It’s a hard-knock life for us!
It’s a hard-knock life for us!

[ANNIE]
‘Stead of treated

[ORPHANS]
We get tricked!

[ANNIE]
‘Stead of kisses

[ORPHANS]
We get kicked!

[ALL]
It’s a hard-knock life!

Got no folks to speak of, so
It’s the hard-knock row we ho
Cotton blanket
‘stead a wool
Empty Bellies
‘Stead a full!
It’s a hard-knock life!

[ANNIE]
Don’t it feel like the wind is always howlin?

[KATE AND TESSA]
Don’t it seem like there’s never any light!

[ANNIE and MOLLY]
Once a day, don’t you wanna throw the towel in?

[PEPPER,JULY]
It’s easier than putting up a fight

[ANNIE]
No one’s there when your dreams at night are creepy!
No one cares if you grow or if you shrink!
No one dries when your eyes get wet and weepy

[ALL]
From the crying you would think this place’s would sink!
Ohhhh!!!!!!!

Empty belly life!
Rotten smelly life!
Full of sorrow life!
No tomorrow life!

[MOLLY]
Santa Claus we never see

[ANNIE]
Santa Claus, what’s that?
Who’s he?

[ALL]
No one cares for you a smidge
When you’re in a orphanage
It’s the hard knock life

[MOLLY]
(Making a whistling sound and imitating Miss Hannigan)
You’ll stay up till this dump shines like the top of the Chrysler Building

[ORPHANS (Except Molly)]
Yank the whiskers from her chin
Jab her with a safety Pin
Make her drink a Mickey Finn
I love you Miss Hannigan

[Molly]
Get to work!
Strip them beds!
Scrub that floor!
Polish my shoes!
And I mean
Start
NOW!

[ALL]
It’s the hard-knock life for us
It’s the hard-knock life for us
No one cares for you a smidge
When your in a orphanage
It’s The Hard Knock Life!
It’s the Hard Knock Life!
IT’S THE HARD KNOCK LIFE!!!
