The Princess’s words resonate with Gabriel and he remembers how his song in the square temporarily moved Nafaryus the day before. Gabriel is convinced that the absence of art and music and the incessant drivel being spewed out by the NOMACS has caused a sort of emotional hibernation amongst Lord Nafaryus and his supporters, ultimately leading to the deadening of his soul and the lack of any compassion in his heart. If Gabriel could just meet with the Emperor and Empress, he knows that through the power of his magical gift of music, especially with their daughter by his side, he could reawaken their spirits and bring harmony back to The Realm. Nafaryus need only agree to ignore the NOMACS for a moment and just listen. Excited to share this encouraging plan with her father, she returns to the palace to speak to him and convince him to meet with Gabriel.

'''Gabriel:'''
  +
Her words ring true
  +
Her message clear
  +
How can he hear
  +
Through all the noise and dissonance?
  +
  +
I've seen a sign
  +
That he can change
  +
If given just a chance
  +
  +
Against all hope
  +
We found a way
  +
And it is all because she trusts in me
  +
  +
Why have a gift
  +
You can't embrace
  +
When all you need is faith
  +
  +
And there's a reason now I see
  +
The reason I've been chosen
  +
She sees the light inside of me
  +
A reason to believe
  +
  +
But I can't climb this mountain without you
  +
No I can't face this on my own
  +
With you by my side we will open his eyes
  +
And the truth will deliver us home
  +
  +
And there's a reason now I see
  +
The path that he has chosen
  +
He fears the light inside of me
  +
  +
In the absence of song
  +
He's forgotten right from wrong
  +
Our voices will release him
  +
He's refused to listen far too long
  +
  +
I'm convinced beyond a doubt
  +
There can be no other way
  +
He just has to hear me out
  +
There's so much I need to say
  +
  +
But I can't climb this mountain without you
  +
No I can't face this on my own
  +
With you by my side we will open his eyes
  +
And the truth will deliver us home

Lyrics

[INT. Gabriel's Hideout - Night]

Gabriel:
Her words ring true
Her message clear
How can he hear
Through all the noise and dissonance?

I've seen a sign
That he can change
If given just a chance

Against all hope
We found a way
And it is all because she trusts in me

Why have a gift
You can't embrace
When all you need is faith

And there's a reason now I see
The reason I've been chosen
She sees the light inside of me
A reason to believe

But I can't climb this mountain without you
No I can't face this on my own
With you by my side we will open his eyes
And the truth will deliver us home

And there's a reason now I see
The path that he has chosen
He fears the light inside of me

In the absence of song
He's forgotten right from wrong
Our voices will release him
He's refused to listen far too long

I'm convinced beyond a doubt
There can be no other way
He just has to hear me out
There's so much I need to say

But I can't climb this mountain without you
No I can't face this on my own
With you by my side we will open his eyes
And the truth will deliver us home
