The Least of My Kind – Three Weird Sisters

Prying my switchblade cold out of my fingers’ hold,
Pause to take stock, reflect, and rue.
Look on the damage done here by a single one;
What do you think a full pack will do?

“The Least of My Kind,” a werewolf’s warning written by Catherine Faber and performed here by Three Weird Sisters.

Outward Bound – Echo’s Children

“They’re looking for a scientist,” my buddy said one day,
“‘Course, the only thing that’s smaller than the quarters is the pay,
But it does mean work in orbit–” I said “Get out of my way!”
And it won’t be much longer now.

I’ve had a berth on Outward Bound since she was begun
I’ve got a berth on Outward Bound and she’s almost done
I’ve got a berth on Outward Bound and–hey!–I’ve got to run!
Cause it won’t be much longer now. 

“Outward Bound” by Echo’s Children, perfect for when you want to bellow along to a space exploration singalong.

My Planet’s Child – Echo’s Children

Oh, I come by it honestly if I am star-beguiled,
For if I am a rover, well, I am my planet’s child.
The very iron in my blood has wandered wide and far–
Forged and flung from the fire’s heart that fueled a foreign star. 

“My Planet’s Child,” a joyful song about space exploration by Echo’s Children.

Lyrics available on Bandcamp.

The Last Spaceship – Cat Faber

If the ship’s engines blaze without holds or delays
Why that boat could amaze in it’s prime
Fortune smiles on strays and audacity pays
If the last spaceship leaves on time

Not enough hopeful space songs of late.  “The Last Spaceship,” by Cat Faber.  Lyrics, chords, sheet music, AND a download link here!

No Quarter – Cat Faber


    Ancient legends say the rank a fallen warrior held
Depended on an Honor Guard of foes that one had felled.
And so in tardy tribute to the one we couldn’t save,
We’ll lay your fiery deaths like crimson flowers on her grave.
Some days I just feel like singing this song non-stop.
Hm. On a totally random train of thought – I think Mandalorians might like this song.
