Lyrics

OPHELIA

oh what a noble mind is here o'erthrown!
The courtier's, soldier's, scholar's, eye, tongue, sword;
The expectancy and rose of the fair state,
The glass of fashion and the mould of form,
The observed of all observers, quite, quite down!
And I, of ladies most deject and wretched,
That suck'd the honey of his music vows,
Now see that noble and most sovereign reason,
Like sweet bells jangled, out of tune and harsh;
That unmatch'd form and feature of blown youth
Blasted with ecstasy: O, woe is me,
To have seen what I have seen, see what I see!

Very original take on Ophelia. Beautiful music, recital, production and collaboration.

Ophelia pain...I really do!
Sorry...this is an exquisite reading of another of the Bard's great soliloquies...well done all!

Really nice, the guitar sounds give this a period style feel, nicely done spoken word as well.

Very cool guitar backup and nice recitation! It all sounds very ominous and disorienting, which matches the lyrics.

How interesting! Love Kate's recitation, perfectly matching the musical background. Well done!
