“The Council Has Spoken” by Super Smack YODA: At war we are, and Chosen though he may be Hazy is the way the Sith evade me Slipping is our gripping on this trainee Prophecies, hypocrisies, betray me. Chosen though he may be Hazily they evade me Prophecies, hypocrisies, betray me. MACE WINDU: Boom, go the clones and droids. Hush go the politicians plotting their ploys We got the Sith playing with us like a kid with a toy We're a Council of men. Now they sending us boys? Well I’ll be damned, if I let this grandstanding Chancellor Push plans on me. I'm a Jedi Master That’s a rank, young Skywalker will never reach Long as I, Mace Windu, sit in this seat. OBI-WAN: The Council has spoken, spoken, spoken, spoken YODA & MACE: The Council has spoken, spoken, spoken, spoken The Council has spoken, spoken, spoken, spoken The Council has spoken, spoken, spoken, spoken ANAKIN SKYWALKER: Hold up, I didn’t ask for this, Mace But you rejecting me? That’s a f****n disgrace OBI-WAN KENOBI: Anakin, enough. You’re out of place. ANAKIN: Back me up, Obi-Wan. Look me in the face And tell me I don’t deserve this. You know my service. Dooku shook you, and I killed him, I earned this- I've been rippin every mission that you asked me to Palpatine sees it, why can’t you? OBI-WAN: Blast. Is he right? Is he Master? Is he Knight? He’s gonna be more than anybody before but Will be it Dark or Light? Quiet. Obi-Wan you’re scaring yourself again This guy's your brother, he’s your friend. Shut up and tow the company line. Everything will be fine. But for a second pretend… If the boy turns, isn’t that on you? Cuts like a saber burns. What would Qui-Gon do? What am I gon' do? ...My job. Gotta see this through. Gotta peace to keep, a war win The Sith don’t sleep. Still in the Jedi do I trust The shadow's deep. It’s darkening. But it's not him. Yo, Anakin is one of us. YODA & MACE: The Council has spoken, spoken, spoken, spoken OBI-WAN: I raised you like a son YODA & MACE: The Council has spoken, spoken, spoken, spoken OBI-WAN: I think of all that we’ve been through YODA & MACE: The Council has spoken, spoken, spoken, spoken OBI-WAN: You are the Chosen One YODA & MACE: The Council has spoken, spoken, spoken, spoken OBI-WAN: And I believe in you ANAKIN: Padme, something's not right with me I’m scared I’m not the Jedi that I should be PADME AMIDALA: What's the matter Ani? You're gonna be a father, what else matters Ani? ANAKIN: Premonitions I can't shake Someone trying to take you away from me, And in my dreams Padme, I can hear your screams PADME: Breathe in, breathe out, I don't doubt your strength, don’t you doubt mine now I've been through the fire. Imma be alright. But don't you run away from me, we're running out of time. Check. The Senate is a shell of what it once was To thunderous applause they fall backwards With Palpatine, democratic means are going extinct Any who'd oppose him are frozen like statues ANAKIN: You’re wrong about the Chancellor, He knows of a power... It could be our answer. PADME: The answer is go back to Naboo Raise our child free of this taboo Anakin, what else can we do? I must be with my people, that includes our family too Our family, boo Our fam-i-ly, Ani, what can we do? YODA, MACE, and OBI-WAN: The Council has spoken, spoken, spoken, spoken PADME: What can we do? YODA, MACE, and OBI-WAN: The Council has spoken, spoken, spoken, spoken PADME: What can we do? YODA, MACE, and OBI-WAN: The Council has spoken, spoken, spoken, spoken PADME: What can we do? YODA, MACE, and OBI-WAN: The Council has spoken, spoken, spoken, spoken ANAKIN: Alone…So much noise. Back home. There was so much sand. I remember my mother's voice. I remember how she took my hand. SHMI SKYWALKER: Ani, are you okay? Are you okay? Are you okay? ANAKIN: Mom, I failed you then, but not her. I won't fail again, that's my word. My love, I swear that nothing will hurt you, I’m sick of living in this twisted image of virtue Yoda's riddles, Mace's high horse, Obi-Wan preaching on like he knows Force. There’s a black hole in my dark soul that even that goodie-goodie Kenobi can’t control I want more, I want her, I want us to rule together, 
Beat death, live forever. Serve a higher power, higher Force, Climb the maiden's tower, be their Lord And these words feel wicked but I won't deny. This Council's the gravity that I'll defy. If you’re not the master, then you’re just the slave I’ll be in my grave before I roll with that I will bring disaster, but if her it saves I will pay that price and I will not look back OBI-WAN/PADME: Come baack MACE/SHMI/YODA: Aah ANAKIN: [beatbox] YODA/MACE: The Council has spoken PADME/SHMI: Ani are you okay, are you okay, Ani? ANAKIN: They don’t speak for me. (x4) MACE: We spoke, spoke, spoke ANAKIN: The Council's broken PADME/SHMI: Are you okay?...Okay… OBI-WAN: You're the Chosen One YODA: Chosen though he may be SHMI: Ani... (x4) MACE: The Council has spoken. YODA: At war we are and Chosen though he may be MACE: The Council has spoken. OBI-WAN: Prophecies ANAKIN: …hypocrisies PADME: …betray me. MACE: The Council has spoken. YODA: At war we are and Chosen though he may be MACE: The Council has spoken. OBI-WAN: Prophecies ANAKIN: …Hypocrisies PADME: …Betray me.
