Lyrics of the Day

Ragnar the Red
Numerous bards throughout Skyrim


Oooooh...

There once was a hero named Rognar the Red,
Who came tiding to Whiterun from ole Rorikstead,

And the braggart did swagger and brandish his blade,
as he told of bold battles and gold he had made!

Bit then he went quiet, Did Ragnar the Red, when he met the shieldmaden Matilda who said...
"Oh you talk and you lie and you drink all our mead! Now I think it's high time that you lie down and bleed!"

And so the claching and slashing of steel,
as the brave Lass Matilda charged in full of zeal!

And the braggart Ragnar was boastful no mooooooooore...
when his ugly red head rolled around on the floor.

Break Free (Lead the way) - Super Mario Odyssey

Smash through the blocks that bar your way

No time for fear just let it all fall away (all fall away)

Nobody believes in me and you, just look at the way they stare

So what if we live in a walled garden, as long as I've got you then I don't care

Kick off the wall and take the plunge

Tripping through 2 dimensions

Up on the moon we'll twirl and swoon

Just lead the way (and I'll follow you)

I'll throw my hat in the ring, 'cause you're the one

A miracle in three dimensions

Follow the brick path straight to my heart

And we'll grab the flag together the fireworks are gonna start

Shake off the chains, you're running free

You'll be amazed at all that there is to see (there is to see)

Together we're racing for the goal, and no one can stop us now

Maybe we don't know where we're going, but we're gonna get there somehow

Climb up the vine and land in the clouds

Maybe then we'll swap up for down

'cross the sea we're still you and me I'll follow you (ust lead the way)

You've got me over the moon, and that's no jest

We're miles above the rest

Look in your eyes and I know we'll be fine

So let's shoot for the stars and make this love really shine

Nobody believes in me and you, just look at the way they stare

So what if we live in a walled garden, as long as I've got you then I don't care

Kick off the wall and take the plunge

Tripping through 2 dimensions

Up on the moon we'll twirl and swoon

Just lead the way (and I'll follow you)

I'll throw my hat in the ring, 'cause you're the one

A miracle in three dimensions

Follow the brick path straight to my heart

And we'll grab the flag together the fireworks are gonna start

Mami, here's what ya (Not gon' do)
Slide into my DM with those nudes
I wrote back, "My wife got those too"
And I'ma take hers if I had to choose

-Andy Mineo, Not Gon Do
I totally forgot about Andy Mineo! He's one of the few Christian rappers that I think had real talent. But then I'm not huge on rap. I listen to some NF but who doesn't?

And since it's the lyric thread, this is one of my favorite songs in the world. The setting influenced the fabulous (literal) entry I did a few years ago for the writing comp about a mayfly encountering a cicada.

The Beetle King On A Coconut Estate - mewithoutyou

As the Moon rose and the hour grew late, the day help on a Coconut estate raked up the dry leaves that fell dead from the Trees, which they burned in a pile by the lake.
The Beetle King summoned his men, and from the top of the Rhododendron stem: Calling all volunteers who can carry back here, the Great Mystery's been lit once again.
One Beetle emerged from the crowd in a fashionable abdomen shroud, said: I'm a Professor, you see, that's no mystery to me...
I'll be back soon, successful and proud.
But when the Beetle Professor returned he crawled on all six, as his wings had been burned, and described to the finest detail all he'd learned.
There was neither a light nor a heat in his words.
The deeply dissatisfied King climbed the same stem to announce the same thing, but in his second appeal sought to sweeten the deal with a silver Padparadscha ring.
The Lieutenant stepped out from the line as he lassoed his thorax with twine, thinking: I'm stronger and braver and I'll earn the King's favor.
One day all he has will be mine!
But for all the Lieutenant's conceit he, too, returned singed and admitting defeat: I had no choice, please believe, but retreat...
It was bright as the sun, but with ten times the heat!
And it cracked like the thunder and bloodshot my eyes, though smothered with sticks it advanced undeterred.
Carelessly cast an ash cloud to the sky, my Lord, like a flock of dark, vanishing birds.

The Beetle King slammed down his fist: Your flowery description's no better than his!
We sent for the Great Light and you bring us this?
We didn't ask what it seems like, we asked what it IS!
His Majesty's hour at last has drawn nigh!
The elegant Queen took her leave from his side, without understanding but without asking why, gathered their Kids to come bid their goodbyes.
And the father explained: You've been somewhat deceived...
We've all called me your dad, but your True Dad's not me.
I lay next to your mom and your forms were conceived, your Father is the Life within all that you see.
He fills up the ponds as He empties the clouds, holds without hands and He speaks without sounds, provides us with the Cow's waste and coconuts to eat, giving one that nice salt-taste and the other a sweet.
Sends the black carriage the day Death shows its face, thinning our numbers with Kindness and Grace.
And just as a Flower and its Fragrance are one so must each of you and your Father become.
Now distribute my scepter, my crown and my throne and all we've known as 'wealth' to the poor and alone...
Without further hesitation, without looking back home, the King flew headlong into the blazing unknown!
And as the Smoke King curled higher and higher, the troops, flying loops 'round the telephone wires, they said: Our Beloved's not dead, but His Highness instead has been utterly changed into Fire!!!

Why not be utterly changed into Fire?...

Song: "The Black Mare"

Artist: Dragonland.


Crack of thunder, sound of rain across the endless fields
As we speed towards the night upon a steed that never yields
Black as the night, swift as the wind and eyes of emerald green
In restless flight our journey takes us further east

The seventh day we reach the west trail through the Nethermoor
Guides us through the mist
Across the river past the grey stones of Ne'anthor
Stars shine our way

Journey into far away and to forgotten lands
And here by my side she will ride there with me
To the home of her kind

I see creatures from old stories I thought make believe
Crawling in the shades with thousand eyes they gaze upon me
She lifts her head up like she senses unseen enemies
In the black of night a shadow watches over me

On the second moon we set out east for Val'inthor
Where her kindred dwell
We pass the mighty ruined citadels of ancient lore
Moon lights our way

Journey into far away and to forgotten lands
And here by my side she will ride there with me
To the home of her kind

Ghostly specters, faded wanderers that gone before
Reveals the passage through the river to the northern shore
Something dwells within the dark I sense we're not alone
Though I know it cannot pass beyond the warding stones

Before the break of fall we stand before the sacred realm
Where her kindred dwell
We make camp in crumbling temples by the raging ford
Light shine our way

Journey into far away and to forgotten lands
And here by my side she will ride there with me
To the home of her kind

Journey into far away and to forgotten lands
And here by my side she will ride there with me
She's the queen of her kind

Dog Years — Maggey Rodgers


I count my time in dog years
Swimming in sevens
Slow dancing in seconds
Oh, and I'm the one that loves you
Oh, and I'm the one that loves you


I spend my time daydreaming
As sure as the sea
It's just you and me
Oh, and I'm the one that loves you
Oh, and I'm the one that loves you


And if you had a bad week
Just let me touch your cheek
Oh, and I'll be there waiting
When you get frustrated
I know things are changing
But, darling, I'm saying
I'll be singing you in all of my songs


Come what may
I'll still stay
Inside your mind
For all of time
Singing, ooh
We will be alright
In the afterlife


Of all that is shifting
And shaking my system
I know your rhythm
And I know, I know, I know, I know
That I'm the one that loves you
Oh, and I'm the one that loves you


And if you had a bad week
Then I'll sing you to sleep
Oh, and I'll be there waiting
If you start to get jaded
I know things are changing
But, darling, I'm saying
I've been here all along


Come what may
I'll still stay
Inside your mind
For all of time
Singing, ooh
We will be alright


Not in vain
We'll still stay the same
Inside your mind
For all of time
Singing, ooh
We will be alright
In the afterlife
In the afterlife

I count my time in dog years, dog years, dog years, dog years, dog years
We will be alright
(Dog years, dog years)
We will be alright
(Dog years, dog years)
In the afterlife
(Dog years, dog years, dog years, dog years)
Singing, baby, we will be alright
(Dog years, dog years)
We will be alright
We will be alright

The Promised Flag - Galneryus

Yes, I could find
The meaning of established flag, and then
I'm able to move outside with my intuition from you
I only believe myself but don't wanna say more
Good-bye to my past and to my darkness

Look around and feel the freedom
Fight against the darkness on me
Overturn my obedience and my life
Along with my iron heart
There's no fear, no hesitation

Reach to the sky
Let the flag raise again don't look back
Go my way
Surely I can find the key
Reach to the sky
Let the flag raise again don't lie to my heart
On my way
I can change my life once again

My body has been threatened
By something wrong again
I have little bit of fear certainly
But I don't care anything
There is my faith stronger than my weakness
And I do have mind that wanna go to the future
And my soul is still burning

Enduring the sleepless night
And thinking everything in few hours
And I accept your suffering and sorrow
Into my iron heart
There's no fear, no hesitation

Reach to the sky
Let the flag raise again don't look back
Go my way
Surely I can find the key
Reach to the sky
Let the flag raise again don't lie to my heart
On my way
I can change my life once again

Wanna be stronger than yesterday
Wanna be brighter than before
Tomorrow is waiting for me surely
Now I'm breaking my cage
Fly to the other side

Look around and feel the freedom
Fight against the darkness on me
Overturn my obedience and my life
Along with my iron heart
There's no fear, no hesitation

Reach to the sky
Let the flag raise again don't look back
Go my way
Surely I can find the key
Reach to the sky
Let the flag raise again don't lie to my heart
On my way
I can change my life once again
Reach to the sky
Let the flag raise again don't lie to my heart
Go my way
Surely I can find the key, oh
Reach to the sky
Let the flag raise again don't lie to my heart
On my way
I can change my life again
Once again
Go my way

"When the Wild Wind Blows" - Iron Maiden:

Have you heard what they said on the news today?
Have you heard what is coming to us all?
That the world as we know it will be coming to an end
Have you heard? Have you heard?

He sees them in the distance, when the darkened clouds roll
He could feel tension in the atmosphere
He would look in the mirror see an old man now
Does it matter they survive somehow?

They said there's nothing can be done about the situation
They said there's nothing you can do at all
To sit and wait around for something to occur
Did you know? Did you know?

As he stares across the garden looking at the meadows
And wonders if they'll ever grow again
The desperation of the situation getting graver
Getting ready when the wild wind blows

Have you seen what they said on the news today?
Have you heard what they said about us all?
Do you know what is happening to just every one of us?
Have you heard? Have you heard?

There will be a catastrophe the like we've never seen
There will be something that will light the sky
That the world as we know it it will never be the same
Did you know? Did you know?

He carries everything into the shelter not a fuss
Getting ready when the moment comes
He has enough supplies to last them for a year or two
Good to have because you never know

They tell us nothing that we don't already know about
They tell us nothing that is real at all
They only fill us with the stuff that they want
Did you know? Did you know?

He's nearly finished with the preparations for the day
He's getting tired that'll do for now
They are preparing for the very worst to come to them
Getting ready when the wild wind blows

He sees the picture on the wall it's falling down
Upside down
He sees a teardrop from his wife roll down her face
Saying Grace

Remember times they had they flash right through his mind
Left behind
Of a lifetime spent together long ago
Will be gone

They've been preparing for some weeks now
For when the crucial moment comes
To take their refuge in the shelter
Let them prepare for what will come

They make a tea and sit there waiting
They're in the shelter feeling snug
Not long to wait for absolution
Don't make a fuss just sit and wait

Can't believe all the lying
All the screens are denying
That the moments of truth have begun

Can't you see it on the TV?
Don't believe them in the least bit
Now the days of our ending have begun

Say a prayer when it's all over
Survivors unite all as one
Got to try and help each other
Got the will to overcome

I can't believe all the lying
All the screens are denying
That the moments of truth have begun

Can't you see it on the TV?
Don't believe them in the least bit
Now the days of our ending have begun

When they found them had their arms wrapped around each other
Their tins of poison laying near by their clothes
The day they both mistook an earthquake for the fallout
Just another when the wild wind blows...

your nightmares into your heart <3
I hate a moral coward, one who lacks a manly spark
I just detest a man afraid to go home in the dark
I always spend my evening where there's women wine and song
But like a man, I always bring my little wife along!
I'm a member of the Midnight Crew
I'm a night owl, and a wise bird too
Home with the milk in the morning
Singing the same old song!
Rise with the moon, go to bed with the sun
Early to bed, and you'll miss all the fun
Bring your wife and trouble, it will never trouble you
Make her a member of the Midnight Crew!
The fun it doesn't stop 'til 12 on happy old Broadway
So what's the use of going home, until the break of day?
Now, something confidential, whisper not above a breath,
I once went home at 2 AM, and scared my wife to death!
I'm a member of the Midnight Crew
I'm a night owl, and a wise bird too
Home with the milk in the morning
Singing the same old song!
Rise with the moon, go to bed with the sun
Early to bed, and you'll miss all the fun
Bring your wife and trouble, it will never trouble you
Make her a member of the Midnight Crew!
I never shall forget the night I made Six Rappers' Run
Although I didn't have a knife, a blackjack, or a gun
I proved myself a hero of a very high degree
I ran for home, and six of them, were running after me!
I'm a member of the Midnight Crew
I'm a night owl, and a wise bird too
Home with the milk in the morning
Singing the same old song!
Rise with the moon, go to bed with the sun
Early to bed, and you'll miss all the fun
Bring your wife and trouble, it will never trouble you
Make her a member of the Midnight Crew!

Hope of Morning - Icon for Hire

My mind's a kaleidoscope, it thinks too fast
Blurs all the colors 'til I can't see past
The last mistake, the choice I made
Staring in the mirror with myself to blame
Sometimes I'm afraid of the thoughts inside
Nowhere to hide inside my mind
I'm scared that you'll compare and I'll look a lifetime past repair
I second guess myself to death, I re-solicit every step
What if my words are meaningless? What if my heart's misleading this?
I try to capture every moment as it comes to me
Bottle up the memories and let them keep me company

When the hope of morning starts to fade in me
I don't dare let darkness have its way with me
And the hope of morning makes me worth the fight
I will not be giving in tonight

When I'm old and grey, or thirty, or whatever happens first
I'll need you to reassure me I didn't waste a verse
Or worse, what if my life's work is reduced to just myself
Like never let you get a word in, while I dissect my mental health
Or lack thereof, whatever, there's too many things to track
I really can't remember if I'm insane or insomniac
Now days, all the kids want crazy, wanna diagnose themselves
Trade up made up epidemics, pass around prescription pills
But my disorder can't be cured by a bottle, blade, or dose
Self-disgust and selfishness tend to hold me awfully close
But I don't wanna let you see that, I don't want my friends to know
Self-disgust and selfishness take me everywhere I go

When the hope of morning starts to fade in me
I don't dare let darkness have its way with me
And the hope of morning makes me worth the fight
I will not be giving in tonight

Try as I might to keep it together
Why is recovery taking forever?
Fool the whole world, just until I get better
I'm terrified I'll be faking forever
(Faking forever)
On and on I wonder what went wrong inside my head
I don't have to have the answers, but tonight I wish I did
All the pain I can't explain away won't fade
All the the secrets silenced by the shame
Don't make me say it
Don't make me say it
Don't make me say it
Don't make me say it
Don't make me say it
Don't make me say it
Don't make me say it

When the hope of morning starts to fade in me
I don't dare let darkness have its way with me
And the hope of morning makes me worth the fight
I will not be giving in tonight
