MADMEN (Dancing) Leave all love and hope behind. Out of sight is out of mind in these caverns of the dead. In the city overhead former lover, former foe to their works and pleasures go nor consider who beneath weep and howl and gnash their teeth. Down in hell as up in heaven no hands are in marriage given, nor is honour or degree known in our society. Banker, beggar, whore, and wit in a common darkness sit. Seasons, fashions, never change, all is stale yet all is strange. All are foes and none are friends in a night that never ends.
(It's listening the lock sound)
Hark! Minos comes, who cruel is and strong. Beware! Away! His whip is keen and long!
