The deal is signed?


Yes


About time


Get on the line


I did what I had to do


That's what they did too


Now in Hadestown there were a lot of souls


Low, keep your head, keep your head


Working on the wall with all their might

Oh, you gotta keep your head


You see, they kept their heads down low


If you wanna keep your head


You couldn't quite see their faces right
But you could hear them singing:


Low, keep your head, keep your head


Swinging their hammers in the cold, hard ground
You can hear the sound of the pickaxe ringin'


If you wanna keep your head


And they called it--

“Freedom.”


I’m Eurydice
Doesn't anybody hear me?


They can hear


But they don't care


No one has a name down here


Mr. Hades set you free
To work yourself into the ground
Free to spend eternity


In the factory


And the warehouse

Where the whistles scream


And the foreman shouts


And you're punchin' in


Hoo


And punchin' in


Hoo


And punchin' in


And you can't punch out, and you’re-


Way down Hadestown

Way down Hadestown

Way down Hadestown

Way down under the ground!



Why won't anybody look at me?


They can look


But they don't see


You see, it's easier that way


Your eyes will look like that someday

Down in the river of oblivion


You kissed your little life goodbye


And Hades laid his hands on you


And gave you everlasting life!


And everlasting overtime


In the mine


The mill


And the machinery


Your place on the a**embly line



Replaces all your memories


Way down Hadestown

Way down Hadestown

Way down Hadestown

Way down under the ground!



What do you mean I'll look like that?


That's what it looks like to forget


Forget what?


Who you are


And everything that came before


I have to go


Go where?


Go back!


Oh?
And where is that?


So what was your name again?


You've already forgotten


You see, it’s like I said before:
A lot can happen behind closed doors
Eurydice was a hungry young girl, but she wasn’t hungry anymore
What she was instead, was dead--
Dead to the world, anyway
You see, she went behind those doors
And signed her life away


Ah-ooh


Saw that wheel up in the sky


Hoo


Heard the big bell tolling


Ah-ooh


A lot of souls have gotta die


To keep the Rust Belt rollin'


Ah-ooh


A lot of spirits gotta break


To make the underworld go 'round


Way down Hadestown


Hoo


Way down under the ground!
