TAFFETA:

Drillgage, wake up,
Your repairs are complete,
You’ve been shut down for hours.
Get back on your feet.

I’m glad you’re okay,
But I feel bittersweet.
I’ve got good news and bad news,
First: Bennington’s defeat.

Clearie’s plan worked
We disarmed his whole fleet
When his diesel bots betrayed him
He was forced to retreat.

But our problems haven’t ended.
I won’t be discrete,
For this next bit of news,
you may want to take a seat.

NEWS REPORTER:

“...reports of a complete takeover of Cogswallop Swamp,
Including Smotestack City and surrounding areas.
At this time, authorities are not sure the identity of the culprit
but she appears to be commanding two distinct automaton armies,
The Moss Agate Police were unable to contain the reign of terror,
and it appears this phantom mastermind has conquered the people of Cogswallop. Who can we count on to stop this mysterious Phantom Conqueror from taking over the entire planet? Who will be there for the residents of the city, flesh and iron alike? Is there anyone out there who can help us?”

DRILLGAGE:

Clearie’s army took over the mines
Using Crockery’s cronies as drillers.
To drain the veins of the diamond supply
And replicate invincible killers.

TAFFETA:

I know you may be wondering why Valentine is here,
Since trusting Lutz Co. was a foolish thing to do.
But he wants to help us stop Crystal Clearie’s cavalry.
She’s made an enemy of the corporation too.

He paid for your repairs, and all your newest parts,
So we should hear him out.
And he believes all we need is to take down Clearie
is to make her armies turnabout.

BENNINGTON AND TAFFETA:

She’s a phantom
Sing her anthem
She’s a Conjurer
She’s a tantrum
Say the mantra
Phantom conqueror

DRILLGAGE:

Hedley has hired the perfect pro for the job,
The best bounty hunter shillings can buy.
An expert at capturing any villain alive,
And then forcing them to abide.

TAFFETA:

And if you’re still with me, we must go along,
We can trick Clearie into a meeting with us,
And bring the hunter into the belly of the beast,
And let them do what they must.

Listen, Drillgage, I want you to know,
I heard everything you told me.
And if you’re still with me,
I’ll hold you if you’ll hold me.

BENNINGTON AND TAFFETA:

She’s a phantom
Sing her anthem
She’s a Conjurer
She’s a tantrum
Say the mantra
Phantom conqueror
