By ME! TTTO: "Stuck In The Middle" by Stealers Wheel

Well I don't know how I got here tonight,
I got the feeling that something ain't right,
I'm so confused by this funky ol' chair,
And I'm wondering how I'll get down those stairs,
Switches to the left of me,
Buttons to the right, here I am,
Stuck on an island with clues.

Yes I'm stuck on an island with clues,
And I'm wondering what it is I should do,
There was this guy with a big floating face,
And there's puzzles all over the place,
Books to the left of me, Gears to the right,
Here I am, stuck on an island with clues.

Well I started out with nothing,
And I'm proud that I got that last book,
But there's this guy leaving notes on the lawn,
Pick it up and it says,
Please.... Please.....

Trying to make some sense of it all,
'Cause it seems that it makes no sense at all,
Hey, cool, I can get through this door,
But I'm not sure what I'm doing anymore
Red pages to the left of me, Blue pages to the right,
Here I am, stuck on an island with clues.

Well I've got a bit more than nothing,
Bringing pages back to where I began,
And these guys, they're still in there waiting,
Peer through the static they say,
Please.... Please.....

Well I don't know how I got here tonight,
I got the feeling that something ain't right,
I'm so confused by this underground maze,
And giant trees just left me in a daze,
Switches to the left of me,
Buttons to the right, here I am,
Stuck on an island with clues.

I've been trying for a while to write a good song about the end of Uru. Of course, it's not really the end. We've been here before. This is our story now, and we will continue it, no matter how long it takes. And in that vein, I finally found the right song to filk, though it wasn't the one I was expecting.

“We Are the Called”
To the tune of “Major Tom” by Peter Schilling

Standing with the book
The link is waiting
Linking through the page
No one’s there
The DRC is gone
But the explorers
Know it won’t be long
We know that D’ni
Will rise again

Myst Island began
A stranger’s mission
Now it is a grand
Expedition
Try to know the past
Within the cavern
Empire’s don’t last
So says Yeesha
We heed her call

And
We
Link
On
Myst awaits us
Linking, learning
Seeking ages
Calling, calling
Home

Funding has been cut
The DRC leaves
Cavern’s closing up
But we believe
We cannot access
Great D’ni’s data
But we’re a success
When all is done
Yeesha goes on

When explorers try
There is a problem
Reltos everywhere
Not responding
Yeesha are you there?
Are you receiving?
Are the bahro gone?
We’re standing by
But still we try

And
We
Link
On
Myst awaits us
Linking, learning
Seeking ages
Calling, calling
Home

Across Yahvo’s great tree
A final message
“The ending has not
Yet been written”

Far above the cave
Explorers waiting
For we realize
We’re D’ni
And we understand
What Yeesha taught us
We will wait and plan
And return home
We’re coming home

Myst behind us
Not forgotten
Link through ages
Calling home

Life before us
We’ll be waiting
Knowing Yeesha’s
Calling home

Myst awaits us
Linking, learning
Seeking ages
Calling, calling
Home

Kick the Quab! Kick the Quab!
Ahnonay-nee link and spin and link and spin and link
Kick the Quab! Kick the Quab! Kick the Quab!
Kick the Quab!

By Hitana:

Icy crystal tree this is not your domain
in the water a quab was heard to cry.
Misty mists whispering and gentle thunder sounds
belied the deathly space that was all around.

Hear the quab harken to the kicking of the explorer
gone to water.
See the splashing of the explorer flashing to the water.
And a stream of blue is sliding unseen beneath the rocks
laughing as it passes through the endless backrounds
making for the waterfall.

In the lazy ahno meadow I lay me down.
All around me silver tree flakes settle on the ground.
Basking in the sunshine of a bygone misty sphere
bringing sounds of squashing quabs into this empty room.

Hear the quab harken to the kicking of the explorer
gone to water.
See the splashing of the explorer flashing to the water.
And a stream of blue is sliding unseen beneath the rocks.

(to the tune of Grandchester Meadows by Pink Floyd)

Ok, ok, old, old memories, I know - but this is one I wrote way back when we were just given D'mala and a caution about any optimism we might feel because of that. To the tune of "Hello Muddah, Hello Faddah.."


Hello UU, hello RAWA,
Here I am at Shard D’mala.
In my Relto, it’s always raining
Plus there’s sounds of someone constantly complaining!

In the city it is gloomy
And in Tele, I can’t see Shroomie
I can’t enter the museum.
And the Tele buckets circle ad nauseum!

In Gahreesen, there’s a nexus
That when we use it, breaks our neckses
There are doors there that won’t open
Though for 2 long years we’ve stood outside them hopin’

You’ve put nixes, on the fixes
Leaving levers that still stickses
And though Kadish does amaze me
There’s a moonroom glass floor there that drives me crazy!

Then you told us, pick 5 explorers
DRC reps! Now what a chorus!
What a chasm, what a schism
But you quickly fixed it (cautious optimism).

Now I get it! We’ve been squawking
And to distract us, you got us talking.
To keep us happy, and keep us busy -
What better method? Put us in a tizzy!

It’s not new content, but it’s something
We should be cheering, should be jumping!
It’s a carrot! Though it’s wrinkly,
It is all we get as you have said succinctly

Until Live lives, and it thrives again
As long as we don’t hold our breaths ‘til then
If we do that - might end up cryin’,
Plus our little skins will end up turning cyan!

Now I’m happy with the “features”
And the teensy, weensy creatures
Skies are clearing, hope is brimming
(Where’s my swimsuit? Here I come, Ahnonay swimming!!!)

Thank you Cyan, Thank you RAWA
Thanks for the joys of Shard D’mala
We’re all grateful for your largesse -
That’s until we find out just how much you’ll charge us!


:squish:

nerf.

Bit more serious. I also SUCK at this sort of thing... but it needs moar peter gabriel.

Right Here, in Uru, to the tune of More Than This by Peter Gabriel. I... suck at this, yeah. I've barely changed the words becuase the song fit so well already (heck, if anyone has better ideas I'd love to hear 'em >>; )

i woke up and the cavern inside was dark
all so quiet before the end
pressed my hand to the page and linked outside
the surface was cold...

i linked until i couldn't link anymore
to an Age i'd never been
there was something moving in the words
in front of me, i could see

more than this
more than this
so much more than this
there is something else here
when all that we had has all gone
and more than this
i stand
feeling so connected
and i'm all here
right here in Uru

it started when i saw the DRC go up
i saw them climbing in the shaft
and suddenly the panel goes black
in front of me

now we're busy making all our busy plans
on foundations built to last
but nothing fades as fast as the future
and nothing clings like the past, until we can see

more than this
more than this
so much more than this
there is something out there
more than this
it's linking through
and more than this
i stand alone and so connected
and I'm all here
right here in Uru

oh then it's alright
when with every day another book falls apart
oh but it's still alright, alright, alright
and like words together we can make some worlds

much more than this
way beyond imagination
much more than this
beyond the Fissure
with my head so full
so full of fractured tablets
and i'm all here[/spoiler]
right here in Uru
so much more than this
there is something else here
when all that we had has all gone
and more than this
i'm alone
feeling so connected
and i'm all here, right here in Uru

more than this
more than this
more than this


(just to prove how much I suck... here's the original [spoiler]i woke up and the world outside was dark
all so quiet before the dawn
opened up the door and walked outside
the ground was cold

i walked until i couldn't walk anymore
to a place i'd never been
there was something stirring in the air
in front of me, i could see

more than this
more than this
so much more than this
there is something else there
when all that you had has all gone
and more than this
i stand
feeling so connected
and i'm all there
right next to you

it started when i saw the ship go down
i saw them struggle in the sea
and suddenly the picture disappears
in front of me

now we're busy making all our busy plans
on foundations built to last
but nothing fades as fast as the future
and nothing clings like the past, until we can see

more than this
more than this
so much more than this
there is something out there
more than this
it's coming through
and more than this
i stand alone and so connected
and I'm all there
right next to you

oh then it's alright
when with every day another bit falls away
oh but it's still alright, alright, alright
and like words together we can make some sense

much more than this
way beyond imagination
much more than this
beyond the stars
with my head so full
so full of fractured pictures
and i'm all there
right next to you
so much more than this
there is something else there
when all that you had has all gone
and more than this
i'm alone
feeling so connected
and i'm all there right next to you

more than this
more than this
more than this[/spoiler]

Before I start: My sincere apologies to all who might think that this is blasphemy. I'm christian too!

Amazing caves

Amazing caves! -
how sweet this
home -
that saved an explorer
like me!
I once was lost, but
now I found,
was blind, but now
I see.

'Twas caves that
taught my heart to
fear,
and caves my fears
relieved;
how precious did
those caves appear,
the hour I first
believed.

Through many
dangers, toils and
snares,
I have already come;
'Tis journeys brought me safe
thus far,
and friends will lead
me home.

The grower had
promised good to
me,
her word my hope
secures;
she will my support
and portion be,
as long as life
endures.

When we've been here ten thousand
years,
bright shining as the lake,
we've no less days to sing D'nis
praise
Than when we'd first begun.

And when this stones
and steps shall fall,
and mortal life here shall
cease;
I shall possess,
within my mind,
the memories and
ease.

The cavern shall soon
dissolve like dust,
the lake forbear to
shine;
But what had called
me to here below,
will be forever
divine.

Amen
