The Lyrics

Celebrating the SyFy series "12 Monkeys" based on the movie by Terry Gilliam which in turn was based on a French film!
Deadly virus released in '17
Killed over 7 million human beings
James Cole immune took up the call
Traveled back before it all

Dr. Cassy Railly lectuted then
Of plague questions: how or when?
Cole abducted her and told earth's fate
But she only thought he was insane

It was a scary story
Of Leland Frost's sick mind
Of one percent survival
Of the end of all mankind

She thought him delusional
In need of psychiatric care
But Cole knife-cut her wrist watch face
And on the future one... the cut... appeared

Later, he would slow down time
Rescue Cassy at normal speed
Kill Leland Frost, he did the deed
As his masters had decreed

... but time didn't change
Nothing rearranged...

It was a scary story
Of Leland Frost's sick mind
Of one percent survival
Of the end of all mankind

Now the project was in motion
Someone else would see it through
Cole splintered back to '43
Leaving Cassy so confused

... but time didn't change
Nothing rearranged...

And even less explained

He left her... with a scary story


In the TV series the future is 2043 and Cole jumps back to 2013 and 2015 in the pilot. The virus starts in 2017.
