Sister, brothers,
Water colors.

Father, above
We sing with love.

Underwater sounds.

Lonely diver,
You will find her.

Open your ears
And you will hear

Underwater sounds.

I come here following a current that carries all I ever lost.
I won’t stop swimming till I find it. It doesn’t matter what’s the cost.

Which one of you wants to show me the way.
Which one of you will guide me?

The guy you want, the one and only Carl Young.
The chosen son, runs the old congregation.

You need some direction? Carl Young. He’s got ‘em.
You need a confession? Carl Young. He’ll listen.

Here he comes, chosen one, our prophet Carl Young.

Ladies come here. Who is your friend?

He’s just a diver on a mission. We told him we’d help him if you gave your permission.

Diver, come here. Let me see those eyes.
You look for her with God on your side. If you don’t accept him a storm end will your life. Follow me, young diver, I’m your only chance of survival.


from Lillian: A Folk Opera, released June 14, 2011
