Alternate First Act Closer

Alternate closing to act 1. comes in from theme sketch 3 with Jurassic Quark shouting
**
You want energy? I'll give you energy lights flickering (the introduction to the music starts before JQ says this)
**
after the first verse chorus, Malcolm will say run.
This is to Time is Running out - Muse
please note italicised lyrics on the right hand side will need changing
the ending of the song sort of tapers of a bit, but we could change that or we could add other songs and make a medley, but i don't think that this is necessary as we can make this song big and suspenseful enough for the closing of the first act  (because isn't that what we're trying to achieve on closing the first act?)

New thoughts:
this song is decent enough to stand on its own (especially if you build the dynamics appropriately)
I think I'm drowning
asphyxiated
I wanna break this spell
that you've created

you're something beautiful
a contradiction
I wanna play the game
I want the friction

you will be the death of me
you will be the death of me

bury it
I won't let you bury it
I won't let you smother it
I won't let you murder it

our time is running out
our time is running out
you can't push it underground
you can't stop it screaming out

I wanted freedom
bound and restricted
I tried to give you up
but I'm addicted

now that you know I'm trapped sense of elation
you'd never dream of
breaking this fixation

you will squeeze the life out of me

bury it
I won't let you bury it
I won't let you smother it
I won't let you murder it

our time is running out
our time is running out
you can't push it underground
you can't stop it screaming out
how did it come to this?
ooooohh

you will suck the life out of me

bury it
I won't let you bury it
I won't let you smother it
I won't let you murder it

our time is running out
our time is running out
you can't push it underground
you can't stop it screaming out
How did it come to this?
ooooohh
Charging the public-per
kilowatt hour
gonna make a fortune
with my pow-w-er

So that's your plan-n then
No flaws about it
Well I won't play the game
I won't just submit

you will be the death of me
coz you want to steal my energy

Harvest it
I won't let you harvest it
I won't let you siphon it
I won't let you capture it

Now your time is running out
your time is running out
You can't keep me tied and bound
Just try and stop me-e now

Short Interlude (Malcolm: Everybody RUN!)
The quark starts catching people and turning them into quarks (will be choreographed) Ann falls or something and ends up coming face to face with the quark and his new minions


Now that I'm out and free
I'll be your Judgement
a sentence you will get
for your cruel intent

now that you know you're trapped
I feel your tension
Thats right you should be scared
of your new "invention"

At this point Malcolm or Lisa runs back and drags ANN away or something like that (malcolm because of that whole thing about liking each other later on in the story)
JQ is now singing towards her retreating form (layering of songs may begin here)

You won't get a drop out of me

Harvest it
I won't let you harvest it
I won't let you siphon it
I won't let you capture it

This is your final hour
This is your final hour
You'll all be turned into quarks
Thanks to your thirst for power
It's time to end this
ooooohh yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah x2
ooooohh yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah

interlude where the back up dancers align themselves into a circle around JQ and dance, before splitting into concentric circles and dancing around JQ, 

you will suck the life out of me

harvest it
I won't let you harvest it
I won't let you siphon it
I won't let you capture it it

This is your final hour
This is your final hour
You'll all be turned into quarks
Thanks to your thirst for power
I'm gonna end this
ooooohh yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah x2
ooooohh yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah

outro where the quarks will arrange themselves around the stage (and where the lights go down and then/but the lights at the front of the stage remain on, so that the shadows of the quarks stretch onto the back wall, followed by a hard lights down
