(SUNG BY: Diabolique, Chip, & Mortatus)

DIABOLIQUE & CHIP
Higher and higher the moon must climb
To it's place amid the zodiac
Now we reach the appointed time
When Madeline will come back

(Lightning! Thunder! Annabel's grave opens, from which Mortatus enters.
Madeline screams. Mortatus, with a wave of his hand, silences her, and she is instantly calm.)

MORTATUS
The full moon is here
My orders were clear
You must prove your worth!

CHIP (SPOKEN)
" I did! The moon was full before Doctor Popov ever discovered the allergy!?!"

MORTATUS (SPOKEN)
" SILENCE!"

MORTATUS
You've fallen short
I've come to escort
Her away from this Earth!

(As Mortatus beckons, Madeline sleep-walks towards him.)

MORTATUS (SPOKEN)
" That's right, Madeline. Time to come home. See? The little human couldn't protect you.
The allergy was discovered. And, the moon is full WHEN I SAY IT'S FULL!"

MORTATUS
You lacked the energy
To guard her allergy
Revenge is mine!

Love's an impostor
Dear boy you have lost her
For good this time!

(Mortatus, embracing Madeline, begins to re-enter The Netherworld through the grave.)

CHIP (SPOKEN)
" WAIT! Give her one more chance."

MORTATUS (SPOKEN)
" Don't tell me..."

CHIP (SPOKEN)
" What if I go in her place?"

MORTATUS (SPOKEN)
" What?"

(Mortatus stops dead in his tracks.)

CHIP
Take me with you
I'll die instead
One last chance to defend her

Let her live please
Give back her life and my own I surrender

MORTATUS
You would trade your life so she would live?
What more could you give?
The true test of love you have passed
With Madeline Mojeaux at last
Together you'll be!

(Mortatus opens a small vial containing Madeline's spirit, pours it over her body, and vanishes into the depths of the grave. Annabel's grave seals itself behind him. Suddenly, Madeline begins to breath and move...she is alive again!)

MADELINE (SPOKEN)
" Falling…I'm falling. Catch me!"

CHIP (SPOKEN)
" I've got you."

CHIP & MADELINE
Oh, now I'm with you once more
That's what I'm living for
Forevermore, ever more.
