Colossus Lyrics

2013 Melbourne production
King Kong the Musical - Colossus Lyrics


No brazen beast, to tear us away
No dragon defiant, to keep us at bay
Liberty rise, light up the skies
And carry we broken men home

Come, come, torch in the sky
Light up the sea, bring us home

Give me your poor, tired and weak
Your huddled masses
I have what you seek
Beacons of gold, tempests have tossed
Masses to me, and they’re lost




King Kong the Musical - Colossus Lyrics

Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame,
With conquering limbs astride from land to land,
Here at our sea-washed, sunset-gates shall stand
A mighty woman with a torch,
Whose flame is the imprisoned lightning, And her name Mother of Exiles.
From her beacon-hand glows world-wide welcome,
Her mild eyes command the air-bridged harbor that twin-cities frame.

“Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!” cries she, with silent lips.
“Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lie my lamp beside the golden door!”
