Crepuscule

by dragonight9


Warning: This work has been rated 16+.

I am writing this to practice how to write song lyrics so I can add them to my book. Any grammar errors or ways to smoothly transfer to the singing of the lyrics and back would be greatly appreciated. This song is heavily inspired by, and to the tune of, "Discord" by, 'The Living Tombstone' in their album, Eurobeat Brony. Can be found on Spotify or YouTube.

For those who want no spoilers for "Shadow's Rising" just skip to the song. I will be describing an idea I have for near the end of my series which is a long way off but I wanted to give fair warning for those who dislike spoilers.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

SPOILERS: This is a song I wrote to be sung by the Night Wings who's minds were taken by a villain in my story named Crepuscule (to be described way later). He is the mastermind of their downfall. After helping them prosper (in order to build trust with them) he then gradually took control until even their minds were his. He now enjoys sadistically listening to them sing about their suffering. I plan to have the main group of characters infiltrate his land and find a pit with a throne looking down into it. In the pit these dragons are singing this song over and over with haggard bodies and eyes red from crying. Trapped in a prison of their own minds.

Suddenly, the Night Wings in the pit began to sing.

"

We’ve always hated puppeteers,
but we had nagging fears,
someone else was pulling at our strings.

Something terrible is happening,
though we were prospering,
we lost sanity and all our wings.

I can’t breath one flame, no, I can’t move at all.

I curse his name, the one behind it all…

Crepuscule! I’m roaring in cave,
And weeping for the day that you made me into your slave.

Crepuscule! Whatever did we do,
That would make you take our minds away?

Crepuscule! Are we your prey alone,
Or are we just a stepping stone for taking back the throne?

Crepuscule! I can’t take it anymore!
Please take your tyranny away!

Crepuscule…

***Music***

I was fine with giving you control,
But then I sold my soul,
Now the world is being torn apart.

With words of sweetest symphony,
you brought catastrophe,
What a terrifying work of art.

I can’t breath one flame, no, I can’t move at all.

I curse his name, the one behind it all…

Crepuscule! I’m roaring in cave,
And weeping for the day that you made me into your slave.

Crepuscule! Whatever did we do,
That would make you take our minds away?

Crepuscule! Are we your prey alone,
Or are we just a stepping stone for taking back the throne?

Crepuscule! I can’t take it anymore!
Please take your tyranny away!

Crepuscule…

***Music***

Crepuscule! I’m roaring in cave,
And weeping for the day that you made me into your slave.

Crepuscule! Whatever did we do,
That would make you take our minds away?

Crepuscule! Are we your prey alone,
Or are we just a stepping stone for taking back the throne?

Crepuscule! I can’t take it anymore!
Please take your tyranny away!

"

They cried in agony.

Again, all credit to The Living Tombstone. I hope you enjoyed.
