REIMAGINE

1.
(We’re in this together!) Looking back feels so bittersweet. I’d never imagine what we started could mean so much to me. It might be true we’ve passed the golden years, well let them say what they want, I’ll politely disagree ‘cause it doesn’t mean much if you’re where you wanna be. So scream if you’re out there, if things just ain’t fair, alone in a nightmare, we’re not going anywhere. Don’t tell me it’s over, that all things have to end, I think we’ll live forever ‘cause we’re in this together! (Hey!) Tell me where do we go from here? (Hey!) Do we just burn up and disappear? (Hey!) Will you still be there stood next to me? (Hey!) Like you were back in 2013. Will they remember you when you’re dead and gone? Let them ask you where you were, show them you’ve been here all along. Will you remember me when it’s been so long? Will we fade to distant memories, will I see you at the con? Every time I look back at the place we all came from, familiar faces one by one, seems everypony’s movin’ on. Every step I take feels like someone gets left behind, but it’s their choice and that’s okay, we’ll keep that fire burning bright. Will you remember them, the friendship that they found? Will you know the songs and sing along twenty years from now? Or will you still be here screaming every word? I know I’m not going anywhere, I’ll die with the herd. Yeah I’ll die with the herd!

Destabilize 03:25
Looks like my secret’s been revealed, I’m not a pony after all, but will they seek to disassemble me? Back me up against the wall. I see how they look at me, following my every move. Suspecting one day I will attempt to crush them all beneath my hooves. Is this what I really am? (It can’t be real, I think, I feel) I can’t begin to understand. (is something wrong inside?) Mechanised components fill my soul. Systems crashing down. The time has come to take control. Systems crashing down. I will assimilate you all. Bionic lenses in my eyes, the metallic circuits in my mind, the gears that twist and turn inside, my memories corrupted over time. (Overload in progress, self-awareness protocols disengaged, all systems reaching critical levels, meltdown in 3, 2-) Why can’t I forget my life before? (It can’t be real, I think, I feel) Am I machine and nothing more? (Is something wrong inside?) Set phasers to hug!
3.
Ever since I found out what I am, every second I can’t understand. As time’s ticking by, with tears in my eyes, can I feel or is sadness programmed? Do I mean the words that I say? Is the world I see really that way? From data collectors, through lenses and sensors, I’m living in an overlay. You’re not the mares I used to know. I wonder what you’ll do. “I have no choice” I hear you say. Well that depends on you and if you’ve got the guts then fire away. Is this the choice you made? I hope you’ve brought the best you’ve got, so steady on that aim and take your best shot. Did they send you out here to kill me? ‘Cause I don’t think that you’ve got the nerve. Though you wear a disguise, it’s there in your eyes. Is this what they tell you I deserve? How do you think that we got this way? “I don’t know you anymore” you say. Well let me remind you of your own past all while you pretend you’ve forgotten my name. You know what must be done. Everywhere a nightmare. I’ve run around trying to find a way out, the sky’s closing in as the screams leave my mouth. Look to the danger and you just might see, the pain and the sorrow that you had caused me. I wonder what you’ll do (what will I do?). “I have no choice” I hear you say (I have no choice). Well that depends on you and if you’ve got the guts then fire away (do I have the guts to fire away?). Is this the choice you made? (But is it right?) I hope you’ve brought the best you’ve got (why am I here?). So steady on that aim (steady!), and take your best shot. I still remember where we all came from. I’m lost in data but are the memories gone? Your eyes look different, I swear they used to glow. Are you lost like me? am I a mare you used to know? Am I a mare you used to know?

Conviction 04:25
I can’t remember the last time I saw another pony, it reminds me of before. Before I became what I am, before I had strength to command, I’m greater than I was back then. My filly days made me this way. You will see I am the wind and rain, you’re just a pony in my way. I am a raging tempest. This is a storm you cannot hide, I feel a fire deep inside. I am a raging tempest. They’re with me every day, memories that stay the same, remind me why I walk this road. Long and winding though it is, the only path that I have left is this. Through storm and shadow I will push on and break those bonds so shallow. You will see friendship is a lie, and you’re running out of time, I hope you said goodbye. Tell me where are- tell me where are your friends right now? They left you all alone somehow so tell me if it’s- tell me if friendship is the way, you’re all alone, so where are they?
5.
My eyes have seen this, the cold of indignation. They always look here, I feel their lacerations. I’ll never be enough, I’ll stumble back again, but I don’t care enough. I wish I had a friend. How many times did I try? They pushed me too far, the great and the powerful Trixie knows just what you are. But is it worth it now? Is this all that I am? You wish I had never appeared, I just wish you’d give a damn. I trusted them to see what’s inside of me, I trusted me to see what’s inside of them. I may have stumbled once on my insignificance but that is all over now, I’ve let go of my dissonance. Our eyes a purple haze, we share the same shade. Yours see power, mine see magic, see a friendship we could’ve made. “She is so talented”, but what is there for me? “I’ve seen a better show”, but I, she will never see. Orion save me now. Polaris guide me now. The water’s rising, how long until I drown? My only sorrow is my head was never in the clouds. The water’s rising, how long until I die? I’m suffocating on tears I hold back inside. The water’s rising, how long until I drown? My only sorrow is that I never stilled my frown. The water’s rising, how long until I die? I’m suffocating on tears I’m holding back inside. I’m only drowning on my loss of self-control, the water’s risen and I’m left with an empty soul. I’ve stumbled for the last time, I’ll leave this place forever, my arrogance precedes me, it’s been a moot endeavour. I’m only drowning on my loss of self-control, the water’s risen and I’m left with an empty soul. I never thought I’d end without a cause to blame, but you were the one there to show me it’s not about the fame.
6.
I wake up in these fields of green, a flash of dark, my memories. How did I get here? Where am I from? I have a feeling that there’s something wrong. When I close my eyes I see it all, my memories of where I came from. Now I’m far away I can start again, make a change to who I was back then. Don’t you see? We’re never welcome in the end. The only way we can live is to destroy them. For us to live, they have to die. A life for a life, an eye for an eye. After all the lives they’ve taken from you, will you lie down and die? Would you let them hunt you too? You could join me, we could destroy every trace of their kingdoms and raise our own. Black citadels reaching the sky, one thousand nights for every lie. When I close my eyes I see it all, my memories of where I came from. Now that I’m far away I can start again. Make a change to who I was back then. Can I let it go, what they’ve done to me? Can I start over with these memories? Can I forgive them all? Should I forgive them all? For all the blood they’ve spilled, for every life we’ve lost. You have to burn them to the ground. (I have to) burn them to the ground. We will have victory when their monuments fall.
7.
[Mayday, mayday, mayday! Cloud 1-1 going down in sector 5 delta. I repeat, mayday, mayday, mayday!] You hide behind your walls, you cower afraid. We will teach you what it is to fear. You think your guardians will save you? You think your princess can help you- will know hell. [This is Harmony 2-3 to Honest 2-1. Nearly in position for overwatch. What’s your situation? Over. Harmony!? Thank Celestia. We’re taking heavy fire! Multiple casualties! This sector’s crawling with bugs!] Your world will burn. A mile of ash for every wrong done to me. Your world will die. You’ll never see the sun again. The streets will run with blood. The streets will run with blood. [This is squadron Loyal 1 to any GCEs in sector 2 bravo, be advised attack run is green. ETA 30 seconds. I repeat, Loyal 1 green for attack run. Over.] Where will you run when your last bastions fall? You will find no safe haven from this swarm. Where will you turn when your friendship has failed? There is no light that can quench us.
8.
It’s been a while since I’ve felt this way, the sting of defeat, the guilt and the searing pain. Forgiven, forgotten too many times. You’re out of love so you’ll try to take mine. No longer can I turn a blind eye. There’s so much blood on your hands and you’ll pay with your life. Well I’m still breathing, my heart’s still beating. you thought my life would be so easy for you to take (for you to take). When everything’s on the line you’ll find I’m harder to break. Look at what you have done, everything’s broken, this kingdom in ruins for your revenge. This is not the end. We’ve all held on through everything you’ve thrown at us we’ll only grow strong enough to rip you down. To tear away that stolen crown. you may have battered and beat us but we’re still here. These scars will give you a reason to understand fear. For all the blood you’ve spilled, for every life we’ve lost (everything’s broken, this kingdom in ruins). For every orphaned child, your life will be the cost. You will pay in blood.
9.
This is the end of everything you are. You thought you’d left me for dead? Do I look dead enough? How will you carry the weight of your sins with your crimes all laid bare, how will you pay? Blood for blood, how will you pay? Blood for blood. Show yourself shapeshifter. Tell me what your rule’s worth when you’re swimming in blood. You speak of cowardice, but that face isn’t yours, but that face isn’t yours. I hope you thought it was worth it as you pulled out the knife. We both have blood on our hands, but only one will survive. I’ve spent so long hoping you would change, thinking you could learn there is more to power than violence. But years have come and gone, your ways will never stop. If it is power you crave then I will abide. If it is power you crave, I will abide. You’ll find you have no friends in the light. You’ll find you have no ally in darkness. You’re but a queen of masks on a hollow throne, you asked for this genocide. You’re but a queen of masks on a hollow throne, your end will be justified. You’re but a queen of masks on a hollow throne, you’ll pay your debts in blood, you’ll pay your debts in blood.
10.
You don’t eat. you don’t sleep, doing nothing but it feels you’re in too deep. It’s quiet but you don’t speak. It’s loud inside and it’s getting hard to breathe. You get lost in yourself, better than being near anyone else. It’s so loud here in my head, echoes of the thoughts I’ve left unsaid. Echoes every word I’ve left unsaid. Will you be the one to show them all you’ll carry on? The storm won’t last, the skies will clear. Show them your story won’t end here. Will you be someone to make it right? To let them know it’s worth the fight, outlive the night, through black until you see daylight. Phone on, head down. Only smile when there’s no one else around. Ripped jeans and headphones too loud. Jaded but there’s comfort in the sound. But there’s comfort in the sound.
11.
Are you there? Can you show me how you make it look so easy, lookin’ easy, fuckin’ any second now. Are you there? Can you hear me now? Turn the music up so loud your family won’t hear her leaving now. Tell me how I’m meant to be, it’s better if it’s not up to me. Show me where I’m meant to go, I think I’m better off if I don’t know. The sun will rise through the blinds into my skeptic eyes. Through streets I’ll run all alone but I’m not the only one. If I mean the world to you, would you give your world to me? Saving hearts for rainy days, tell me boy what do you mean? Where have all the bright lights gone? It’s black as far as I can see. Time won’t wait for what you want, so can you tell me- It doesn’t have to be like this, we weren’t always this way. It took a while to fall apart, but it gets easier every day. Though times will change all around me while I stay the same, through streets I run, By myself but I wasn’t always the only one. You said I mean the world to you, but you took the world from me. saving hearts for rainy days, tell me boy what do you mean? Where have all our bright lights gone? It’s black as far as I can see. Time won’t wait for what you want but will you tell me.
12.
Delta Vee 03:33
So we’re back again, let’s start where we came from. This tale’s been told a thousand times, the repetition’s made me numb. ‘Cause I see right through you, and the shit that you put me through. Going round and round inside my head, I did all that I could do. You can’t just tell me who I am with words you think you understand. I’ll watch as you pretend it doesn’t hurt again. You can’t just tell me who to be, your lies don’t mean a thing to me. You try but I can tell, I know that face too well. So you think that in the end there’s nothing wrong? You forced a life on me, but it’s my role to play along? Again you stare at me looking for sympathy. You spawned a life and ruined mine, and named her Apogee. So burn the pictures on your wall, you hung me out to take the fall. Left me behind in your jetstream, this is the last of Delta Vee. Take every gift down from the shelf, you only cared about yourself. But after all you’ve done to me, I’ll still be there for Apogee.
13.
Were you ever left in the dark alone? I was ten centuries on a moonlit throne. There are no words for such a dark despair when the only light comes from who put you there. I know you feel the darkness I feel. I see it in your eyes, you will kneel. The life you took from me, I will pay it back, a thousand screaming years drowning in feedback. You are the betrayer. You will fail, you will fall, I know you’ll lose, I hear it in your voice, you feel it too. You are the betrayer. You will fail, you will fall. Betrayer, pretender, a broken jewel. A shadow of yourself clinging to failing rule. You claim there’s purity in light but are you sure? I’ve learned that only darkest night is truly pure.
14.
Hey Fluttershy, listen to me when I say you do not need any of this. There’s no way that changing who you are could prove to us that you’re assertive. They can’t tell you how to act when they don’t know what you’ve been through, the only one who can decide to try and change this is you. You’ve gotta keep it together! Little filly tell me now, why this angel never leaves the ground, she’s not the type to follow through, this story’s pages start and end with you. She’s left out in the rain, she’s too shy to complain. Just suck it up and let it go, how she feels inside we’ll never know. One, two, three, four. Her eyes glued to the floor. Five, six, seven, eight. Left feeling second rate. While her dreams pass her by, she’ll wish she weren’t so shy. Why can’t I just make myself be less scared to try the things I wish I could do like soar into the sky. The more I try to hide my doubts the more that I find. Perhaps I should give up and just pretend I don’t mind. Fluttershy don’t let this end. No one’s a perfect friend. This burden’s not just yours to bear, you’ve gotta know your friends are always there. So come out of the rain, we didn’t mean to cause this pain, just grab your dreams and don’t let go. They’re yours to keep, so hold them close.
15.
As I stare out from the edge, where the laughter was now echoes silence. As I reach out to the dark, where the brightest rainbow now falls black. I scream out loud to where you are, though I know my voice can’t reach that far. I’ll light a spark, bright memories, and cast a spell to bring you back to me. We are candles in the rain, burning bright ‘til we’re snuffed out. So many lights along the way, I’ve seen them flash just as they- I’m gonna grab that light, these thoughts won’t take me over again. Gonna make it right, this won’t be the road I walk, I’ll step back from the edge, take me home again ‘cause I’m gonna grab that light. I wanna see that better tomorrow. We are candles in the rain, burning bright ‘til we’re snuffed out. So many lights along the way, I’ve seen them flash just as they drowned. I won’t let you fade in the dark (I won’t let you fade in the dark). It’s hard remembering your voice. I’ve gotta see those smiles again (I’ve gotta see them). Though it’s selfish do I have a choice?
16.
Go! (Whoa, whoa, whoa-whoa) What is going on? I can’t believe this. After the years when I was small, I thought I would miss my princess Cadence, this doesn’t make sense. How could you change so very much? Now I’m on the fence. Now it’s come to this, I will not let them win. I don’t care what you say, I will stand up and fight! (Whoa whoa) I will not let this die. These black clouds fill the sky, we will fight back tonight! (Whoa whoa) We will not let this die. I swear I’ll never let you beat me. Even if I can’t win the fight, I’ll keep believing. I’ll never run or hide, the truth I have to find. No matter what mask you may wear, my real friends will not die. I don’t care what you say, I will stand up and fight! (Whoa whoa) I will not let this die. As changelings fill the sky, we will fight back tonight! (Whoa whoa) We cannot let this die. Oh!
17.
Holy Fire 04:44
(Just lie here tonight under cool moonlight, so stay here inside depths of my mind.) Every time I close my eyes it’s always the same, it’s you standing there, always see you standing there. And every time I run I can’t seem to get away, you’re always right there with me, you’re always right there with me. You burn like a candle’s flame. Ablaze inside and yet you keep it tame, so wear your smiles, I know your true desire. To wash this land away in righteous fire, all will burn, all will burn. I’ll always be right here keeping the blue skies clear, though fire hides inside, its warmth is insincere (so insincere). But I still feel the flames, a blazing sea (a blazing sea). The sun is rising now, the day will break with me (the day will break with me). I am the divine sun. Through flame, all life undone. I am the divine sun. In fire all become one. The sun will rise with me. Daybreaker.
18.
Goodbye 03:45
Do you remember when we met? You were looking down and yet we picked you up to dust you off, I still remember what you said. That you’d lost your way, such melancholy words you’d say. Time has come and gone since then but don’t get lost in the good old days. Don’t get lost in the good old days. So we’re here at the end, did we teach you well, my friend? Don’t look so sad to see us go, it rains but then there’s rainbows. We’ve come so far, we’ve done it all. We took a stand and took the fall, through our time we’ve learned what’s right but now it’s time to say goodbye. It’s time to say goodbye. Soon nine years will pass, how does time go by so fast? Some things are easier said than done but I know your journey’s just begun. I know you’ll make it far from here, you won’t see us but we’re near. Long as you remember the good old days we’ll be beside you all the way. We’ll be beside you all the way! Are you still out there? Did things turn out fair? Did you wake from the nightmare? Are we going anywhere? Will you say it’s over? That all things have to end? Or will we live forever? Still in this together. Now we’re here at the end, did we teach you well, my friend? Don’t look so sad to see us go, after the rain comes rainbows. We’ve come so far, we’ve done it all, we took a stand and took the fall, through our time we’ve learned what’s right but now it’s time to say goodbye. Goodbye.
