One man against the whole of modern life. One man for an against the world.
[Scene begins with a single man standing alone in the middle of a crowded room. Slowly the people trickle out. All that remains is the man. He looks up and begins to sing.]

I am a simple man
Simple dreams
Simple strings
Than any old guy can pull
(vague laughter from the shadows)
All I have ever wanted was to make something
Create something
That everyone would know
And watch it grow
And then let it go

[The man holds up his hands and faces away from the audience]

But god!
Oh god that i have no hope in
Oh god that has forsaken me
Begotten me no miracles worthy of his golden kingdom
Well hear of my kingdom!

[The mans voice rises]

My kingdom of wonder and hope
Yet of woe and hatred beyond any scope
Hear the screams of joy mix with the screams of anger
The peals of bells and the peals of laughter
Each hallowed hall and city street
Filled with sounds and words and beat
Each morning sun told a thousand ways
Each forgotten wave
Each person of any shape, gender, or size
Each equal in the eyes of the masses
My masses
The masses that tear and rip and hate-

[His hands lower and his voice grows soft]

The masses that have pillaged and raped
The masses born of mass murderers
Mass hate
Each singular piece of a mass so dastardly yet so common
Such blasphemy it would be to ignore them
Abhore them
Tell them theyre worthless scumbags and that their tone is toneless
Boneless is a man like me
That allows himself to be shoved this way and that as if at sea
Woe is me.

[The stage goes dark]
