What Good This Deafness Lyrics

Artist: Trans-Siberian Orchestra
Album: Beethoven's Last Night

[BEETHOVEN]

WHAT GOOD THIS DEAFNESS
THAT MY WHOLE LIFE I HAVE DREAD
WHAT GOOD THIS DEAFNESS
WITH THESE VOICES IN MY HEAD

WHAT GOOD THIS DEAFNESS
IF THIS PRATTLE I MUST HEAR
IF I WERE BLIND I'M SURE THEY WOULDN'T DISAPPEAR

[TWIST]

DID YOU REALLY WANT TO BELIEVE WHAT YOU'RE SAYING
DID YOU REALLY WANT TO BE HERE ALONE
HAVE I INTERRUPTED A MOMENT OF PRAYING
WHILE YOUR LIFE'S DECAYING
YOUR SINS ARE THEY WEIGHING
WHILE YOU'VE BEEN CARVING YOUR STONE
ALL ON YOUR OWN

DID YOU REALLY WANT TO SIT HERE IN SILENCE
COULD IT BE THAT BROODING IS PART OF YOUR ART
IS IT AN EXTENSION OF ARTISTIC LICENSE
A MOODY DEFIANCE
OF ALL OF LIFE'S TYRANTS
WHILE YOU'VE BEEN SEARCHING YOUR HEART
ALONE WITH US IN THE DARK

[Beethoven implores the spirits to leave him alone, but Twist tells him that as shadows they only exist by the light that Beethoven's life has cast and as that light is fading, it is only natural that they should cling to its last moments of illumination. As the clock strikes midnight their conversation is suddenly interrupted by the appearance of Mephistopheles. His presence causes all the other spirits to shrink silently back to the corners of the room.]

[Mephistopheles informs Beethoven that he has come to collect the composer's soul. Faced with eternal damnation, the terrified composer claims that it cannot be his time, that he has yet to complete his Tenth Symphony. Mephistopheles looks at the manuscript and then with seemingly uncharacteristic generosity, offers to give him as much additional time as he needs, but only if he will tell him what parts he plans to add or change. Beethoven is forced to admit that it is his masterpiece and he would not change a single note. His bluff called, Beethoven still can not believe that this is how his life must end. Mephistopheles assures him that not only is it so, but his reaction is the nearly universal response from every man who is about to be condemned to hell. But he then tells Beethoven he is a very fortunate man, for he has decided to offer the maestro something very rarely offered to humans at the end of their time, a second chance, a possible way out of his most unfortunate dilemma.]
