Countdown - Part 7

Aria & trio: Alice "Men in love with power"

With her area Alice is revealed to be the disembodied voice on the loudspeaker. The countdown advances to fifty seconds.
There are men in love with power,
Who dream of a final explosion.
A power unearthly,
A power to rival God.

They dream of a final triumphant voice,
Exploding against the skies.
Shattering the earth.
Hosannas on high,
Hosannas on high.

Hosannas on high.

A final destructive voice,
Hosannas on high.

Exploding against the skies

Shattering the earth,
Hosannas on high,
Hosannas on high.
Fifty seconds to launch.
Fifty seconds and counting.
Get your key, Jenna.
It can't be, Charlie !
I don't want to die in a hole in the ground.
I don't want to die in a hole in the ground !

Playback Tips: The sound files are in mono format. I am using Sound Machine as a "Helper Application" to play these au format files back on the Macintosh. I have noticed on my system (which is optimized for stereo playback) that unless the volume of the empty channel is disabled or turned all the way down, the empty channel will add hiss to the channel with the sound. If you experience hiss during playback, you should try to disable playback of the empty channel. If you are listening through external amplification as I am, this may merely require panning your balance control all the way to one side.
