The Bitter Suite was the first musical episode of Xena. And by the Gods, they pulled it off. Better than anyone thought they could have.


WHAT 'S STILL UNWRITTEN...
Callisto
Ohh, Glad that you're feelin' strong
Thought I might lose ya.
Don't use words, sing a song
This is Illusia


Song of Illusia
Callisto
Xena be warned, Xena beware
By closing your eyes you can see what isn' t there
Xena be calm, open your eyes
Lies may be truth and truth may be lies
Fate is a wheel, it will reveal
All you've become, all that you feel
Destiny knows what has to be
You'll pay the price, nothing is free
I'll be your guide, take the hand of your muse
You just might lose your way in the Land of Illusia


Illusia is music, a world built on rhyme
It's carved out of space in the absence of time
You've tasted how evil and good coexist,
The bitter and sweet of it


White Dog
All in the lips that you kissed...ahhh


Callisto
Lion and bull, eagle and snake
To live or die It's a choice you have got to make
Can you undo what you create
Step through the wheel
Follow your fate


Chorus of Animals
The fates have a fix on you
We can play tricks on you
We deal in truths you're too troubled to face
Gamble the worth of you, on the rebirth of you
Don't turn away, don't start to fade
What's still unwritten...
You can erase


Callisto
Your villainous infamy tortures your soul
Descent into evil must levy it's toll
The darkness that rots you has brought you to this


Snake
Surrender serenity, suffer sweet misery
Sin seeks it's cursed abyss


Anubis
Oh Xena, with death there is always rebirth
Sphinx
Come see with a vision denied you on earth


Callisto
Illusia is waiting: we'll show you the way
But all consequences are your own creation
And there's a price you must pay


Calisto and Chorus of Animals
The fates have a fix on you.
We can play tricks on you
We deal in truths, you're too troubled to face
Gamble the worth of you, on the rebirth of you
Now is the time this is the place (Don't turn away, don't start to fade)


Callisto
What's still unwritten you can erase


Chorus of Animals
Illusia is music, a world build on rhyme It's carved out of space, in the absence of ....


Xena
All right Callisto
You like little dittes. Fine. I've got one for ya
You're actin' so strangly that I hardly know ya
but still I would't trust you far as I throw ya


Callisto
You're wrong not to trust the one that knows you so well
I haven't betrayed you That was Gabrielle


Xena
Gabrielle. Is she here? The one who betrayed me is she in this land?


Callisto
I'm merely your guide dear along for a grin
You'll get not free ride here If you want to know more, then spinn


Gabrielle
The Elysian fields. Only heroes wind up here.
Dead heros... Dead naked heros...


JOXER THE MIGHTY
Joxer the Mighty,
master of georgraphy
Here to guide you on your way
Stick with me, you'll never stray
If you're in the land that's new
I'm the man who'll get you through
Even when you're slightly nude
I'm Joxer! Joxer, the Mighty!


Joxer
We're in illusia


Gabrielle
So much for the Elysian Fields theory


Joxer
Yeeh


Gabrielle
How did you...
Joxer go away... Can't you see, I'm naked...


Joxer
Okay, but, maybe I could, like, help you out, with--
Beeing naked won't excuse you
Sing to talk we're in illusia


WAR AND PEACE
Warriors
Praise the winds of chance that blew
Xena back where friends are true
We would fight to death for you brave Xena
When your mighty chakram arcs
throwing fierce magnetic sparks
No one ever hits her marks like Xena
Famed for prowess with a sword
Who's as feared and as adored
You've not lived till you've been gored by Xena


Warrior #1
You're the Warrior Princess who's as strong as an oak


Warrior #2
You've got eyes that can tear out the heart of a bloke


Warrior #3
With one look you can wilt a flower

All Warriors

Xena
Ares, I thought as much. But why the big production number?
What's the point?


Ares
Your are the most devine, delicious warrior
A man can't help saluting your return
And if you start my heart it's just the way you slash and burn
Bewitching women, straining at the armor plate
You singe me with the ardor you inflame
And in my carnal heart there's not a sorry shred of shame


All Warriors
You and me love war
Doesn't matter what it's for
Pandemonium reigns and we're bludgeoning brains
Give us War, War, War
Keep it down to a roar


Warrior #5
Words of wisdom Ares said


Ares
When in battle keep your head


All Warriors
Warriors love War,War,War


Villagers
Gabrielle, Gabrielle, Gabrielle...

Her blood innocence is lost, Gabrielle
Now the past has set her free
And she's traveled home to be

Villager #4

While the hours away baking bread, pitching hay
We love peace,peace,peace, simple joys that never cease


Villager #1
Nothing changes but the time


Small Group of Villagers

Ares
Vengeance can be such a hoot

MELT INTO ME
Ares
You're lost and confused but I understand
This once beloved friend has been slain by your hand
You feel all alone, betrayed and adrift
But maybe her loss can be viewed as a gift


Now I'll be your rock, your strength and support
Your close confidant with whom you can consort


I know you completely Come melt into me
Unleash the power of your destiny


You've proved to yourself
now that you've made the kill
That you're just like me
With as evil a will


Our forces are meant to be merged into one
The world will be panicked
when our work is done


Let the music of war,
with it's lustful refrain
Arouse us to heights
with a passionate strain


Imagine how awesome together we'd be
So feel what I'm feeling
Come melt into me


Callisto
Did that fill you with glee
To kill your little friend
Did that ease your suffering
Or bring it to an end
Let go...
All of your anger will poison you yet
Unless you can just
Let go


HEARTS ARE HURTING
Part One
Xena
How are you feeling right know, Nothing about the past, right now


Gabrielle
I hurt inside, don't you...


Xena
My heart is hurting beyond words
The pain is tearing up my soul
These days have seen my spirit die
My life propelled out of control
My wounds lie naked to the world
My depth of suffering exposed
This damaged past can never heal
Until this nightmare book is closed


Gabrielle
My heart is hurting beyond words
The pain is tearing up my soul
Please tell me how can I retrieve the life that all the sadness stole
Because of you this happened
Because you had to carry out your vengeful little plans


Xena
It's you who should be guilty
Because of you my child is dead
His blood is on your hands


Gabrielle
If only you had never brought me there


Xena
If only you had done what you were told


Gabrielle
It's you who's to be blamed


Xena
And you should be ashamed


Gabrielle
It's your fault


Xena
No it's yours


Gabrielle
How could you


Xena
How could you
It's your fault...


HATE IS THE STAR
Song of Torment
Gabrielle
It's Dahak. This is where it started. I can't. I can't


Xena
No Garbielle.


Gabrielle
I can't.


Xena
Look Gabrielle everything about this place has been a Torment We've been guided through it for a reason, whatever happens we have to go through it together.


Hate
It begins very small
seems like nothing much at all
Just a germ, just a speck, just a grain
but the seed has been sown
and before you know it's grown
It has spread through you life like a stain
And its power will strangle your love and joy
and its hunger consumes for it lives to destroy, Hahaha....


Hate is the star: it becomes who you are
Not the hated, but the hater
has a torment that's greater


It will eat you alive, consume you and spit you out
Hate's gonna win that there's no doubt about
Hate doesn't care who you are-Hate Is The Star!


Learning hate is an art, even people who are smart
can be caught, can be crushed, can be creamed
Hate has swallowed you whole
Did you think you're in control
Hate you thought, hate you spoke
hate you dreamed
All your hate gave me substance
your lives are undone
It's your eve of destruction, your hatred has won!


HEARTS ARE HURTING
Part Two
Xena
I never dreamed that we'd be distanced by a hate
that all the trust we had would go


Gabrielle
How could I hate you


Xena
How could it come to pass
This awful twist of fate


Gabrielle
How could I hurt you


Xena
This madness can't be so


Gabrielle
I can't believe it


Xena
I never dreamed that any barriers could rise


Gabrielle
Or that I'd ever see the stranger in your eyes


Xena
Our hearts were hurting both the same


Gabrielle
The hurt was tearing up our souls


Xena
The fury in us made us blind


Gabrielle
We could not see beyond the pain


Xena
If we can turn again to love


Gabrielle
If we can heal these open wounds


Xena
We'll leave this hatred far behind


Gabrielle
So not a trace of hate remains


Both
We'll overcome our damaged past
And we'll grow stronger side by side
To stand together through the storms
We're safe cause love will be our guide


THE LOVE OF YOUR LOVE
Gabrielle
Solan. it was him. He's why we're here. It's the way out It's gotta be... He's here to lead us home. Come on... Come on... Xena Quick


Xena
I can't


Gabrielle
Of course you can


Xena
It no use Gabrielle It's Ming Tien. I killed him. I killed you bustard


Gabrielle
You lied?... You gave me your word... You lied...


Xena
(Singing) Yes, I lied
Thought I could protect you from the truth
Deliver you from evil
Spare your innocence and youth
That I could simply will it
Was the real untruth


I was wrong
I wore a mask to cover my deceit
But underneath it all I couldn't keep away my doubt
Now I'm left without a mask
And one question left to ask


I'm sorry, please help me, forgive me
Don't hate me, don't leave me, forgive me
Forgive me, my debt as only you could
Forgive me the hate
Replace evil with good
Forgive me and find out that you
will be able to forgive yourself too


My dear Solan,
I never told you that you were my son
I didn't know the days we had left were so few
If I only knew I'd have been with you


I'm so sorry I couldn't be the mother you deserved
And I regret that I missed your first step your first word
That I never heard
Now it seems absurd


Can you forgive me
Open up your heart and let me in
No matter if the fates against us turn
There's one thing through all of this I've learned


That what I need from you is to...
Forgive me, I'm sorry, believe me
Stop hating, stop hurting, forgive me
Forgive those who harm you
Do good for those who hate
Forgive, if not forget
I know it's not to late
Forgive me and you'll discover too
That the love of your love is you
