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!

(All the people runs. Anne comes with a guardian)
