Flash's Dream (the Final Elbow)

Flash's Dream (the Final Elbow)

The Kinks

[Scene]
Mr. Black's army is closing in on Flash & The Spivs.
After a long day's campaigning Flash, having overindulged
The alcohol, has fallen asleep in his den.

[Voice]
Cooee. Cooee. Flash. Flash

[Flash]
Who is this?

[Voice]
Wake up Flash. Can you hear me Flash?

[Flash]
Who is this? Who dares to wake me from my slumber?

[Voice]
Need I announce myself? Am I such a stranger to you?

[Flash]
Say your name. Speak!

[Voice]
I am your soul.

[Flash]
My soul?

[Voice]
I have come to show you who you are.

[Flash]
Show me who I am? I know who I am you upstart! How
Dare you intrude.

[Voice]
You lied and schemed and took over a simple village and
Turned it into a vulgar playground for your own money-
Making ends. Before you came people lived simple lives.
This was a happy place. Then you ploughed up the fields,
Sold off the land and lined your own pockets with the profits.

[Flash]
Lies! Lies! I did it to help the nation

[Voice]
You did it for your own preservation!

[Flash]
No! No!

[Voice]
Prepare yourself Flash, there are many who suffered at your
Hands. They are craving for vengeance. Time is running out.

[Flash]
Can this be the end? Can this be the swan song? The final
Elbow? I will not go. The people need me.

[Voice]
Men like you will always come and go, but the people will go
On forever. Take one final look at the past Flash. Enjoy it,
Because you have no future.

[Flash]
No! No! No! I can't stand this.
Trumpets herald the final confrontation between Flash and himself.
