Karaoke for the Deaf:

Natalie Imbruglia sings the song "Torn."  David Armand, a member of the troupe "Hollow Men" performs the song in a series of visual puns and pantomime.

Below are the words to the song.  (Later when I get some time I will write out the "signs" that David is using.)
Also, as of this writing a good link to a video of the performance is: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F0hAUN4bYVk

I thought I saw a man brought to life
He was warm, he came around like he was dignified
He showed me what it was to cry

Well you couldn�t be that man that I adored
You don�t seem to know, or seem to care what your heart is for
I don�t know him anymore

There's nothin' where he used to lie
Our conversation has run dry
That's what's goin' on
Nothing�s fine
I'm torn

I'm all out of faith, this is how I feel
I'm cold and I am shamed
Lying naked on the floor
Illusion never changed
Into something real
I'm wide awake and I can see the perfect sky is torn
You're a little late
I'm already torn

So I guess the fortune teller's right
I should have seen just what was there and not some holy light
But you crawled beneath my veins and now I don't care, I have no luck
I don't miss it all that much
There's just so many things
That I can't touch
I'm torn

I'm all out of faith, this is how I feel
I'm cold and I am shamed
Lying naked on the floor
Illusion never changed
Into something real
I'm wide awake and I can see the perfect sky is torn
You're a little late
I'm already torn

Torn...

There's nothing where he used to lie
My inspiration has run dry
That's what's goin' on
Nothing's right
I'm torn

I'm all out of faith
This is how I feel
I'm cold and I am shamed
Lying naked on the floor
Illusion never changed
Into something real
I'm wide awake and I can see the perfect sky is torn

I'm all out of faith
This is how I feel
I'm cold and I am ashamed
Bound and broken on the floor
You're a little late
I'm already torn

Torn...

Oh...

Oh yeah, oh yeah...(repeating, fade out)
