Lost in the Wilderness (Reprise) lyrics

Lost in the Wilderness (Reprise)

DID YOU REALLY THINK I’D BE HERE, CHANTING A PRAYER,
TILL YOU FIN’LLY DEIGNED TO REAPPEAR?
NOTHING YOU CAN SAY COULD STOP ME HEADING OUT THERE.
WHEN ALL I KNOW ABOUT YOU
IS YOU LEFT US HERE,
LOST…
ABANDONED IN THE WILDERNESS.
SO — YOU CAN KEEP YOUR BRIBES AND TEMPTATION.
I’M GONNA FIND MY OWN DESTINATION
(Scoops up the bundle and slings it over his back)
OUT IN THE WASTELAND,
WITH NOTHING TO GUIDE ME
BUT THIS BURNING INSIDE ME —

ABEL
Don’t go, Cain!

CAIN
THE SPARK OF CREATION!

ABEL
Cain!

He’ll come back.

FATHER
Will he?

ABEL
He’s got to come back…

FATHER
Abel. Say nothing of this to your father and mother. I wasn’t here. You don’t know
why Cain ran away. This is our secret. Do you understand?

ABEL
Yes, Grandfather.

FATHER
Promise?

ABEL
Promise.

FATHER
ABEL, MY GRANDSON,
YOU ARE THE FUTURE.
ALL MY HOPES LIVE IN YOU.
DON’T BREAK MY HEART…


EVE has joined ABEL. THEY watch ADAM as he stands gazing out
over the hills, shielding his eyes with his hands)

ADAM
Cain! Cain!

ABEL
He’ll be all right, Papa.

ADAM
And what if Father finally comes for us while he’s gone? What then, Abel?

What then?

ABEL
I don’t know.

ADAM
Damn him, anyway!
