lyrics

Bruno is led into the room by the Valet, Bellarmine sitting in chair,

Bellarmine – Our most renowned provocateur

Bruno – Our most reverend lawyer

Bellarmine - I am a man of God. You should be grateful for my hospitality, my palace must be a welcomed change from your meagre cell.

Bruno – You’re a legal viper they bribed with a red hat, for after seven years they’ve proved too timid to convict me, too frightened to acquit me and too stupid to outwit me. This ordeal is an absurd comedy and pathetic travesty…

Bellarmine – Ah, like the obscene one you wrote, Il Candelaio wasn’t it?

Bruno – My play puts a mirror to the face of hypocrisy, now I’m acting in a far more grotesque farce.

Bellarmine – You have contempt for everything.

Bruno – Except the truth.

Bellarmine – You believe the truth to be a fixed shining star like the sun; it’s a relative concept.

Bruno – The truth is fixed, the sun is not.

Bellarmine – We wish our stray sheep to be returned to the flock Giordano.
Think of me as a gentle shepherd. I have reduced the thirteen charges against you to eight. Simply recant these and you may go free.

Bruno is given the document and reads the eight charges

Bellarmine – The Holy Father has entrusted your situation to the Office of the Inquisition of which I am the sole authority – I alone will be your judge, jury and if needs be your executioner.

Bruno – You’re a lying pimp and Hell itself would choke on your putrid mendacity and vomit you into the void.

Bellarmine – Get him out of here, Get him out!

Bruno – And Hell would choke on your lies and spit you into the void.

Bellarmine - Get him out! Get him out!

Bruno - Into the void, Into the void…

Bruno is dragged out singing
