Two weeks to take a song from conception to completion to competition!

Steel to the Sky

This song was created for Game of Bands round 135 : " Odd Times and No Rhymes IV"

Lyrics:

Starlings rose on a planet far
With great steel
Above them swooped the Mechagons
Untouchable masters

Strength along could not kill them
The famine grew
They needed weapons, but what kind?
Something unheard of

So away three were smuggled
To the planet of Kesa
Where the fae were known to live
With the technology
Of masterful magicka

To gain it would not be easy
And to fail would not be acceptable
But to die would be forgivable

Rise, Starlings, steel to the sky
(Wave your swords, fight your fate)
Bring them down from the cosmos
(Strike them thrice, take their joy)
Ride to the heavens and rain victory
(Make them pay, save your spirits)
A battlecry of freedom

Three trials of S’Kaling were owed
Three to spill blood
One with a sword, a terrible slice
The creature slain

One with an arrow, true to the bone
Proven worth
And one spoke peace, wounded himself
Third blood fulfilled

Gifts from the Kesa they won
A ship for battle
Arrows photonic, swords of light
And armor unseen

Their magick seemed unbeatable
And to fail seemed impossible
Now to die seemed unforgivable

Rise, Starlings, steel to the sky
(Wave your swords, fight your fate)
Bring them down from the cosmos
(Strike them thrice, take their joy)
Ride to the heavens and rain victory
(Make them pay, save your spirits)
A battlecry of freedom
[Exit]
