Tyillaan's theme song

Joined: Jan 21 2004

After a record breaking attempt of three deaths and three SS strands on a quest series. Preceded in a broader record breaking attempt of 5 SS from 8 deaths. I give you.

Goodbye Admorin
Though you never fired a shot
You had the grace to hide yourself
While those around you buffed
They crawled out of the cavern
And they bashed into your Dragon
They set you on the treadmill
And they made you change your game

And it seems to me you lived your life
Like a candle in the wind
Never knowing who to pray to
When the rain set in
And I would have liked to have known you
But I was just an NPC
Your candle burned out long before
Your legend ever did

Roleplay was tough
The toughest role you ever played
Fog-a -wood created a superstar
And strands was the price you paid
Even when you died
Oh the GM still hounded you
All the others had to say
Was that Admorin was found in the rear

Goodbye Admorin
For the young man with the 2nd strand
Who flees as three is more than expected
More than just our Druid now

Your candle burned out long before
Your legend ever did

Kaelyn's song. Still haven't found one for Rissa after 3 and a half years.

Amarillo Sky - Jason Aldean

She gets up before the dawn
Packs a lunch and a thermos full of coffee
It's another day in the dusty haze
Those burnin' rays are wearing down her body
And diesel's worth the price of gold
And it's the cheapest grain she's ever sold
But she's still holding on

CHORUS
She just takes the tractor another round
And pulls the plow across the ground
And sends up another prayer
She says, "Prunilla I never complain I never ask why
But please don't let my dream run dry
Underneath, Underneath this
Amarillo sky"

That hail storm back in '83
Sure did take a toll on her family
But he stayed strong and carried on
Just like her mom and grandmom did before her
On her knees every night he prays
Please let my crops and children grow
Cause that's all she's ever known

CHORUS

And she takes the tractor another round
Another round, another round
And she takes the tractor another round
Another round
She says I never complain I never ask why
But please don't let my dreams run dry
Underneath, underneath this
Amarillo Sky

Underneath this
Amarillo sky

Dailymotion - Amon Amarth - The hero - ein Musik Video


This one certainly fits Kurn to a T. The Hero by Amon Amarth


The tale of an ultra-violent, black hearted merc who dies heroically in battle, and warns that none should weep for him when he is gone.


The blade I swing

Is black as night

Black as my soulless heart

It bears the burden

Of many lives

But I don't feel remorse


I lent my sword

To anyone

Willing to pay the price

No regrets for

What I've done

A mercenary's life


But there i was

On battleground

Until I felt the jaws of death

Cut into my flesh

Defending old and weak

But I did not retreat


Now, here I lie

In my own blood

And strangers cry for me

I'm prepared to meet the gods

I wish they'd let me be


I don't deserve

Their sympathy

I know who I am

My soul is death and misery

I am an evil man


I rest in my blood

Soon I will face the gods

Strangers cry for me

I wish they'd let me be


Show no sympathy

Shed no tears for me

I know who I am

I am an evil man


I know who I am

I am an evil man

another plot another strand (or the dangers of returning to the plot)


Ooh, let's go

Arfur walks warily down the cave

With the shield pulled way down low

Ain't no sound but the sound of his save

Strands ready to go


Are you ready! hey are you ready for this!

Are you hanging on the strand of a soul

Out of some looping the arrows rip

to the sound of the snap -yeah


Another one bites the dust

Another strand goes the road

and another one gone and another one gone

another one bites the dust eh

another strand goes the road


How do you think Im going to plot along

without strands that are gone

you took me for the strands that I had

and it will never be quite the same


Another one bites the dust

Another strand goes the road

and another one gone and another one gone

another one bites the dust eh

another strand goes the road


There are plenty of ways that you can hurt a man

And bring him to the ground

You can ignore him

You can gore him

You can treat him bad and leave him

When he's dead, yeah


But I'm clueless, yes I'm plotless for you

I'm standing on my own two feet

Out of the looping the arrows rip

twanging to the sound of the snap

Oh yeah


Another one bites the dust

Another strand goes the road

and another one gone and another one gone

another one bites the dust eh

another strand goes the road

Found Tyra's themesong. Hope you like this one Shiff.


YouTube - GLEE - Get It Right (FULL HQ ORIGINAL SONG)


What have I done?

I wish I could run

Away from this ship goin' under

Just tryin' to help, hurt everyone else

Now I feel the weight of the world is

On my shoulders


What can you do when your good isn't good enough?

When all that you touch tumbles down?

'Cause my best intentions keep making a mess of things

I just wanna fix it somehow

But how many times will it take?

Oh, how many times will it take for me?

To get it right

To get it right


Can I start again with my faith shaken?

'Cause I can't go back and undo this

I just have to stay and face my mistakes

But if I get stronger and wiser

I'll get through this


What can you do when your good isn't good enough?

When all that you touch tumbles down?

'Cause my best intentions keep making a mess of things

I just wanna fix it somehow

But how many times will it take?

Oh, how many times will it take for me?

To get it right


So I throw up my fist

Throw a punch in the air

And accept the truth that sometimes life isn't fair

Yeah, I'll send down a wish

Yeah, I'll send up a prayer

And finally, someone will see

How much I care!


What can you do when your good isn't good enough?

When all that you touch tumbles down?

'Cause my best intentions keep making a mess of things

I just wanna fix it somehow

But how many it times will it take?

Oh, how many times will it take for me?

To get it right

To get it ri-igh-ight

There are a lot of songs that have reminded me of different characters in different situations, but it's always been difficult thinking of a song as being a theme for any particular character. Like summarizing a whole person in a few lines!


This one has made me think of Acacea for a few years, and is the only song I've ever considered ripping the lyrics of to perform IC. I don't really like using lyrics taken from RL songs, but it was tempting. :)


Quote:
This world is made from sweat and toil

Pushing muscle and elbow oil

We can’t lie too long in the shade

'cause everyday must be remade


Some days we fall, some days we fly

In the end we all must die

Our rotting flesh and broken bones

Will feed the ground that we call home

Will feed the ground that we call home


A new sprout grows from a fallen tree

This song will go on after me

So lift your heart and dry your eyes

It’s another day to live and die

It’s another day to live and die


Now I’ve run naked in the wild

Seen the beauty of a new born child

And like the alchemists of old

I’ve tried to spin my straw to gold


Most times a giver, sometimes a thief

So full of hope, but prone to grief

Between freedom and despair

I know the truth is lying there

I know the truth is lying there


A new sprout grows from a fallen tree

This song will go on after me

So lift your heart and dry your eyes

It’s another day to live and die

It’s another day to live and die


Go on now, don’t you worry about me

You’ve miles to go and a world to see

My life’s been long and full and good

I’ve run this race the best I could


It’s a short time here and a long apart

The same song rings in both our hearts

So take this guitar when I’m gone

Write your rhymes and pass it on


A new sprout grows from a fallen tree

This song will go on after me

So lift your heart and dry your eyes

It’s another day to live and die

It’s another day to live and die

Let a new sprout grow from a fallen tree, this song will go on after me

So lift your heart and dry your eye, it's another day to live and die

It's another day to live and die


Just another day

A song for Chaynce from Daniella: (Ironically... this started playing on the radio station I was listening to right after Chaynce died)


One Sweet Day- Mariah Carey and Boyz II Men


Sorry I never told you, all I wanted to say.

Now it's too late to hold you,

'cause you've gone away, so far away..


Never had I imagined,

living without your smile.

Feeling and knowing you hear me,

It keeps me alive,

Alive..


And I know you're your shining down on me from heaven,

Like so many friends we've lost along the way.

And I know eventually we'll be together

One sweet day..


Darling I never showed you.

Assumed you'd always be there.

Took your presence for granted

But I always cared

And I miss the love we shared


And I know you're your shining down on me from heaven,

Like so many friends we've lost along the way.

And I know eventually we'll be together

One sweet day..


Although the sun will shine the same,

I'll always look to a brighter day.

Lord I know when I lay me down to sleep,

You will always listen as I pray..


And I know you're your shining down on me from heaven,

Like so many friends we've lost along the way.

And I know eventually we'll be together

One sweet day..


And I know you're your shining down on me from heaven,

Like so many friends we've lost along the way.

And I know eventually we'll be together

One sweet day..


Sorry I never told you, all I wanted to say..

One for Daniel B. Poetr and Viper (Bella)


Separate Lives- Phill Collins and Marilyn Martin

YouTube - ‪Seperate Lives ~ Phil Collins / Marilyn Martin‬‏


You called me from the room in your hotel

All full of romance for someone that you met

And telling me how sorry you were, leaving so soon

And that you miss me sometimes when you’re alone in your room

Do I feel lonely too?


You have no right to ask me how I feel

You have no right to speak to me so kind

We can’t go on just holding on to time

Now that we’re living separate lives


Well I held on to let you go

And if you lost your love for me, well you never let it show

There was no way to compromise

So now we’re living (living)

Separate lives


Ooh, it’s so typical, love leads to isolation

So you build that wall (build that wall)

Yes, you build that wall (build that wall)

And you make it stronger


Well you have no right to ask me how I feel

You have no right to speak to me so kind

Some day I might (I might) find myself looking in your eyes

But for now, we’ll go on living separate lives

Yes for now, we’ll go on living separate lives

Separate lives

William's themes: Mass Effect 3 Soundtrack- Leaving earth (cover for electrical guitar) and Apocalyptica - Ruska. And since recently, he has fallen into this: Mass Effect 3 Soundtrack - I was lost without you.

Aden's theme, "Driven": Apocalyptica - Somewhere around nothing

Faction theme song(s):
Wolfswood Rangers, Followers of Folian: more than just singing for the trees. Amon Amarth - Live for the kill

Quote:
The pack of wolves
Are closing in
Now, hear the howling beasts
They move fast
Through winter woods
And soon it's time to feast

A vicious hunt
On through the night
The prey is short of breath
They feel the sting
Of burning eyes
That's fixed upon their necks

A predator's heart
Knows no remorse
It lives for the hunt
A predator's heart
Knows no remorse
It lives for the hunt
A natural force

They show their sharp
And grinning teeth
As howls are getting higher
Sending chills
Down fleeing spines
Their blood runs hot as fire

The vicious chase
Is soon at end
They're hunted until death
They feel the pain
Of sharpening steel
That's cutting through their flesh

Fearless warriors
Feed the wolves
Now hear the howling beasts
They move fast
Through winter woods
See the grey-backs feast

A natural force
It knows no remorse
And lives for the kill

The cello bridge fits as well.

For the followers of Toran and allies, I found this theme to be great. Albeit there are more impressive pieces of music and speeches, this one is another nice one, in my opinion.:

Mass Effect 3 Soundtrack - Stand strong, stand together.

Malukah - Reignite

Hope can drown lost in thunderous sound
Fear can claim what little faith remains

But I carry strength from souls now gone
They won't let me give in...

I will never surrender
We'll free the Earth and sky
Crush my heart into embers
And I will reignite...
I will reignite

Death will take those who fight alone
But united we can break a fate once set in stone

Just hold the line until the end
Cause we will give them hell...

I will never surrender
We'll free the Earth and sky
Crush my heart into embers
And I will reignite...
I will reignite.

Haven't posted in here in a while, but the most worthy Steel theme song yet:

Slipnot's

"Before I Forget"

Go!

Stapled shut, inside an outside world and I'm
Sealed in tight, bizarre but right at home
Claustrophobic, closing in and I'm
Catastrophic, not again
I'm smeared across the page, and doused in gasoline
I wear you like a stain, yet I'm the one who's obscene
Catch me up on all your sordid little insurrections,
I've got no time to lose, and I'm just caught up in all the cattle

Fray the strings
Throw the shapes
Hold your breath
Listen!

I am a world before I am a man
I was a creature before I could stand
I will remember before I forget
BEFORE I FORGET THAT!

I am a world before I am a man
I was a creature before I could stand
I will remember before I forget
BEFORE I FORGET THAT!

I'm ripped across the ditch, and settled in the dirt and I'm
I wear you like a stitch, yet I'm the one who's hurt
Pay attention to your twisted little indiscretions
I've got no right to win, I'm just caught up in all the battles

Locked in clutch
Pushed in place
Hold your breath
Listen!

I am a world before I am a man
I was a creature before I could stand
I will remember before I forget
BEFORE I FORGET THAT!

I am a world before I am a man
I was a creature before I could stand
I will remember before I forget
BEFORE I FORGET THAT!

My end
It justifies my means
All I ever do is delay
My every attempt to evade
The end of the road and my end
It justifies my means
All I ever do is delay
My every attempt to evade
THE END OF THE ROAD!

I am a world before I am a man
I was a creature before I could stand
I will remember before I forget
BEFORE I FORGET THAT!

I am a world before I am a man
I was a creature before I could stand
I will remember before I forget
BEFORE I FORGET THAT!

I am a world before I am a man
I was a creature before I could stand
I will remember before I forget
BEFORE I FORGET THAT!

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, OH!

Everytime i heard this song it remind me of Armand "The gnuman", he is one big experiment going horribly wrong to go all the way to where this song would lead.

Heard this morning and couldn't help but to think of the gnuman Armand Dawson

 

The future soon.

 

......
 
I'll probably be some kind of scientist
Building inventions in my space lab in space
I'll end world hunger, I'll make constructs speak
Work through the daytime, spend my nights and weekends
 
Perfecting my warrior robot race
Building them one laser gun at a time
I will do my best to teach them about life and what it's worth
I just hope that I can keep them from destroying the earth
 
......
