Pure of Heart – Araxie Haldane

scribefindegil:

It was only a matter of time before I wrote a filk inspired by The Last Mabelcorn. Don’t let the unicorns get you down.

Lyrics:

The unicorn smiled when she saw you approaching her fountain
“Just one little test” she demanded and shot you a grin
“Just prove that your heart is as pure as the dew on the snowdrops
You’ll foul my glade if you’re wicked and tainted with sin.”

CHORUS:
Don’t fall for the lies of those cruel unicorns
You’ve been messy and mortal since the day you were born
If you try to be perfect it’s just gonna tear you apart.
They want you to break yourself down till you shatter
They’ll say that you’re selfish for knowing you matter
So be brave and tenacious and loving and joyful and smart
But forget pure of heart.

“My lady,” you said, “I can’t claim that my spirit is blameless,
But I try to do good and to help in the ways I know how
My heart’s filled with love for myself and the people around me
And I’ll strive to do more and be better and stronger, I vow!”

CHORUS

The unicorn scoffed and she drew back her head with a shudder.
“I knew it! You arrogant mortals have never been pure!
Perhaps if you’re humble enough you may gain some forgiveness
But you’ll never be perfect. You’re sullied, and I have no cure!”

CHORUS

“Well, what have you done then?” you said as you stood up and faced her
“Just sit in this glade telling people the things they can’t do.
There isn’t a deed or a person who’s ever been perfect
And I may not be pure but I’ve damn well done more good than you!”

CHORUS

If you’re careful you’ll notice that unicorns live all around us
You can tell by the smugly superior look in their eyes.
They’ll enumerate each of your flaws with distain in their voices.
They’ll all tell you you have to be perfect; they’ll all tell you lies!

Don’t fall for the lies of those cruel unicorns
We’ve been messy and mortal since the day we were born
If we try to be perfect it’s just gonna tear us apart.
I won’t let the world break me down till I shatter
I’d rather be selfish than think I don’t matter!
I’m brave and tenacious and loving and joyful and smart
But I’m not pure of heart.

Make This Timeline Brighter (Demo) – Araxie Haldane

scribefindegil:

A rough demo of the hope song I’ve been trying to write since November 8th.

Lyrics:

So here we are. It’s come to this.
The darkest timeline’s where we’re living.
I know it’s hard to carry on
And take the world that we’ve been given.

But we’re still here. And we’re still fighting
With our hands, our words, our hearts
In little ways, through darkened days.
This is where the future starts.

So make this timeline brighter.
Make this timeline brighter.
Make this timeline brighter.
From today.

I know that I can’t save the world
But I will save the things I can.
In start and fits, the timeline splits
Every time we take a stand.

We make this timeline brighter.
Make this timeline brighter.
Make this timeline brighter.
From today.

So help the ones who need your helping
Lend your voices to their song
And small and slow the world starts changing
Though the work is hard and long

We’ll make this timeline brighter.
Make this timeline brighter.
Make this timeline brighter.
From today.

scribefindegil:

Sometimes you need to take a break from hope songs to be sad and scared and take refuge in needlessly complicated poetic forms.

The Last Centurion’s Song – Will Sturman

I got left alone in a recording studio last week, so I thought I’d do a recording of the Doctor Who song thebastardofgloucester and scribefindegil wrote, to the tune of Leslie Fish’s “Roman Centurion’s Song.”  Because it’s great and I want people to hear it.

We Shall Wear Midnight – Araxie Haldane

I was really really sad about Terry Pratchett, so I sang the last song on Steeleye Span’s Wintersmith album (the one where Tiffany breaks the fourth wall and sings to her author).
