The movie "Mercury Rising" is not just about a child whose parent's are killed by the mob: it speaks directly to the topic of child abuse. The lyrics herein, work in progress, reflect the music and tone of this theme, and hopefully, I have managed to convey a part of it herein. Best to be reviewed with the music from the soundtrack if you can get to it. The main theme and the child's theme are covered, but not exactly fitted: web access and computer access are constrained to <140 minutes a day at the moment.

Mercury Rising

(WIP (work in progress), © Copyright 2003-6 Roy A. Crabtree, All Rights reserved)


[To be done: fitting the exact phrasing to the two main themes from Mercury Rising:]

{Main theme: mercury Rising}
{Child’s Theme: Mother & Father}

My mother … my father

I need you … where are you?


(tonal change: somber)

My mother … my father

I need you … where are you?


(Tonal change: resolution)
My mother, my father …


#2: Main Theme


Mercury, rising, down, on thee

Percuring Hopes & Dreams, as Thy Destiny


Venus Turns, bearing Sad Lament

Down the darkened Voids, that Hath Pluto Lent


            Down inside my Deepest Soul

            Will Come the Rising Dawn

                        And I Will Carry On


            Deep Inside my Soul

                        That I Will Bear Thee On

#8:  Restatement


You are my mother; you are my father


Titan charms young maiden Ganymede

Slighting those, harmed, bade insanities


Summer’s warmth, verdance, springs, maid chaste

Autumn’s winters bring, lashing down, laid waste


            Io flies towards Jupiter

            And I Will Raise The Stars

                        A Newlit Juniper

#11:  Closure


Season’s Fruits will bring sad lament

Should Reason’s Lose, All Grounds, Be Thou Glad: repent


Man, well meant, unto Lunacy

Crying sad lament, always Few, ne’er He


            Deimos’ rage Feeds Phobias

            While Those most Sage, seed Cornucopias

#2: Close


Jupiter Has Aligned With Mars

Thru the Firmament, Crost a Billion Stars


Neptune’s Guest, Saturnalian

Kept in Chests & hearts, Cold Uranian


            I duly Love All I see

            And newly Loved, Show their mercy, maiden me


            Lord O God of Love yet Please

            That you let me Love my own Persephone

Left overs:


Under sway of the rising Sun

One more (Wonder/wander) day (way), love’s reprise, begun






Solarian/proletarian/Rotarian/notarian (no tarrying)
