The Dark Shadows Wiki

Epilogue is a specially recorded spoken word track narrated by Jonathan Frid . Recorded in 1969, "Epilogue" was released as the sixteenth track on the album Original Music From Dark Shadows (Volume 1) in its LP and later compact disc printings. The music is composed by Robert Cobert with words from Shakespeare's 'The Tempest'.


Our revels now are ended.

These our actors,

As I foretold you, were all spirits and

Are melted into air-into thin air:

And, like the baseless fabric of this vision,

The cloud capp'd towers, the gorgeous palaces,

The solemn temples, the great globe itself,

Yea, all which inherit it shall dissolve

And, like this insubstantial pageant faded,

Leave not a rack behind.

We are such stuff

As dreams are made on, and our little life

Is rounded with a sleep.
