A Story Told [Geschichte]

[Mondego]
We are friends, are we not?
 
[Danglars]
And our interests are the same
 
[Villefort]
We collaborate
 
[Danglars]
And trust in fate
To parcel out the blame
 
[Mondego]
There are ends we’ve all got that can justify the means
 
[Danglars]
We negotiate
 
[Villefort]
Then fabricate the facts behind the scenes
 
[Mondego]
Keeping all the details vague and secrets hidden
 
[Danglars]
Safe in the balanced sheet [?] of those you trust
Because history is a story told by the winners of the fight
You imply a little
 
[Mondego]
Lie a little
 
[Villefort]
Testify and try a little sailor
 
[Mondego]
Who’s gonna question what goes on
in the middle of the night?
Not a tinker
 
[Danglars]
Not a tailor
 
[Mondego]
Not his father or Mercedes
 
[Villefort]
Or a jailer
 
[Mondego]
So we all are agreed
Let’s be vigilant and wise
 
[Danglars]
We must all pretend our naïve friend
Was caught in his own lies
For our plan to succeed
we must share but one belief
Edmond Dantès stays and ends his days
Inside the Chateau d’If
 
[Mondego]
Where the softest things he’ll touch are stones and darkness
Deep in a craggy isle in dungeon’s keep
 
[Villefort]
Because history’s a story told by the men who make the laws
 
[Danglars]
We supply a little lie
 
[Mondego]
To help the gullible to buy a little fable
 
[Villefort]
What will become of the righteous men who fashions Dantès’ flaws?
 
[Danglars]
The rich
 
[Villefort]
And well respected
 
[Mondego]
Are no more to be rejected at our table
I’ll be a comfort in her time of grief and anguish
I’ll be Mercédès’ ever faithful acolyte
Every night
 
[Villefort]
And part of me wishes Dantès didn’t have to languish
But I can see it’s him or me
 
[Danglars]
Let him sit there and rot until he’s forgot
 
[Mondego]
Let him rot!
 
[All]
History’s a story told by the people who survive
 
[Villefort]
Let me sign and then initial
 
[Danglars]
It’s the truth if it’s officially the story
 
[Mondego]
What if it costs us one young man so three more men can survive?
 
[Villefort]
He’s a price we have to pay
 
[Mondego]
To live and fight another day for love and glory
 
[Danglars]
He was standing in the way
A threat to justice in Marseille
 
[Villefort]
So goes the story!
 
[Mondego]
Stick to the story!
 
[All]
Here ends the story!
