LINKING DOWN TO OLD D'NI
Tune: "Rollin' Down to Old Maui," trad.
Words: (c) 2007 Joseph Abbott

It was late last fall I first heard the call
Though I knew not what it meant
Felt the urge to go to New Mexico
And to Zandi's place I went
Then when Yeesha spoke my desire awoke
To explore the deep city
So I turn the page of each new age
And link down to old D'ni

CHORUS: Linking down to old D'ni, my friends
Linking down to old D'ni
I turn the page of each new age
And link down to old D'ni

Oh, sure I shook when I touched the book
And the world around me changed
But I had to smile when I saw the isle
And my viewpoint rearranged
Here I'll make a home from which I can roam
And I'll see what I can see
And come what may we will find a way
Linking down to old D'ni CHORUS

(There will likely be verses added later...)

Okay, here is my attempt at filk. No one will think less of you if you choose to run now ;)

Write Ages for Us
(roughly to the tune of "Rock Me Amadeus" by Falco)

Ooo... write Ages for us, Atrus.
write ages for us, Atrus.
write write Ages for us, Atrus.
for us Atrus for us Atrus for us Atrus.....

Well hello my friend,
a stranger I need to enlist
I need your help to escape
and save an island called Myst
I tried to teach them some respect
but they want to do is loot and pillage,
My sons kept screamin'
Come on, write ages for us, Atrus

Trapped my sons in books
saved my wife from Gehn
Went back underground
to build D'ni again
Then I gathered the survivors
But had to find them a home
They begged and pleaded,
Come on, write ages for us, Atrus

Write Ages for us Atrus, for us Atrus
Write Ages for us Artus, for us Atrus
Write Ages for us Atrus, oh oh write us ages.

Come on and write us Ages!
Write Ages for us Artus, for us Atrus
Write Ages for us Artus, for us Atrus
Write Ages for us Atrus, oh oh write us ages.

I've been doin' this for years
Writin' worlds on demand,
Everyone keeps mistaking me
for some dude named Rand.
Book after book, I'm writing things
That the mind can barely fathom
But the fans keep screamin'
Come on, write more ages for us, Atrus!

Write Ages for us Artus, for us Atrus
Write Ages for us Artus, for us Atrus
Write Ages for us Atrus, oh oh write us ages.

Come on and write Ages for us, Atrus!

Baby baby write me more ages
Baby baby write me more ages
Baby baby bring me blue pages

Come on and write me new ages.

The Song of Bahro

as sung to "The Sound of Silence" by Simon and Garfunkel.



Hello Ae’Gura, my dear friend,
I’ve come to walk with you again.
And tell you of an odd dream I had,
While I was lying in my bed.
I saw the City
Alive and flowing with light
Quite a sight
And heard the song of Bahro.

And in the darkness-light I saw
A thousand people, maybe more.
People dancing in the Bevins
As if they just made it to heaven
But the dancing
Was to a song that only I heard
Without words
The music of the Song of Bahro.

And then the vision quickly changed
And the Grower called my name.
She said that I had now a new Journey.
The life of darkness now enveloped me
She said the music
Was the essence of their souls
now imposed
Onto the Song of Bahro.

I had to free them from their chains
From those who would enslave
She said to make it be known
We need to find a way and Make a home.
He is coming
But when, she could not say.
Farewell she bade.
And left me to the Song of Bahro.

And so I come to warn right now,
But I cannot tell you how.
All I know is that I must leave here,
And go to the island of K’veer.
For my journey
Will never let me return.
For I yearn
To follow the Song of Bahro……

How about a filk of a slightly more obscure song? Trouble Every Day, by Frank Zappa. Hear the original here. http://filexoom.com/files/2007/1/10/526 ... eryday.mp3

Destruction Every Day

Well I'm about to get sick
From watchin' my own KI
Been checkin' out the news
Until my eyeballs fail to see
I mean to say that every day
Is just another borin' mess
And when it's gonna change, my friends
Is anybody's guess

So I'm watchin' and I'm waitin'
Hopin' for the best
Even think I'll go to prayin'
Every time I hear 'em sayin'
That there's no way to delay
Destruction comin' every day
No way to delay
Destruction comin' every day

Wednesday I watched a protest...
Seen the DRC out there in a huff
Watched 'em throwin' rocks and stuff
And chokin' in the dust
Listened to reports
About the image passin' 'round
Seen the smoke & fire
And the ages burnin' down
Watched while everybody
On the street would take a turn
To pry and cry and sigh and lie
And fry and try and die

And I'm watchin' and I'm waitin'
Hopin' for the best
Even think I'll go to prayin'
Every time I hear 'em sayin'
That there's no way to delay
Destruction comin' every day
No way to delay
Destruction comin' every day

Well you can cool it,
You can heat it...
'Cause, baby, I don't need it...
Take your IC forums and go eat it
'N all the whiners and the dorks
'N all the unconfirmed reports
You know I watched the internet
Until my brain began to sweat
From checkin' out the way
The posters say they get the dirt
Before the guys on forum so-and-so
And further they assert
That any time they'll interrupt
To bring you news if it comes up
They say that if the place blows up
They'll be the first to tell
Because the boys they got in cavern
Are workin' hard and listen better,
And if anybody gets the news
Before it hits the net,
They say that no one blabs it faster
Their coverage is the best

And if another ResEngineer
Gets kidnapped from their seat
They'll send some joker with a brownie
And you'll see it all complete

So I'm watchin' and I'm waitin'
Hopin' for the best
Even think I'll go to prayin'
Every time I hear 'em sayin'
That there's no way to delay
Destruction comin' every day
No way to delay
Destruction comin' every day

Hey you know something people
I'm not Bahro
But there's a whole lotta times
I wish I could say I'm not human

Well, I seen the fires burnin'
And the explorers who're turnin'
On the Cate and all the others
Their friends and all their brothers
And anyone against the fightin'
Watched the mob just turn and bite 'em
And they say it served 'em right
Because they mighta known Nick White,
And it's the same across the cavern
All the hatred forms a pattern
They yell "They're lying, can't you see!"
And all the other crap they hand me
On the forums and my KI
It's all just mass stupidity
That seems to grow more every day
Each time you hear some nitwit say
He wants to bash your brain in
Because the position that you've taken
Just don't appeal to him
(No matter if it's wrong or right)
Because he's out for blood tonight

You know we shouldn't sit around at home
And watch this thing begin
Cuz if we do, there won't be many left
To see it really end
'Cause the fire in the street
Ain't like the fire in the heart
And in the eyes of all these people
Don't you know that this could start
On any street in any town
In any state if any clown
Decides that now's the time to fight
For some ideal he thinks is right
And if a million more agree
There ain't no great society
As it applies to you and me
Our cavern isn't free
And the DRC refuse to see
If all that you can ever be
Is someone searchin' for an answer
Unless your uncle's an investor
You know they'll push you out the door
N' say don't come back here any more
Don't watch the rats go across the floor
And make up songs about being poor
Blow you harmonica son!

Huh, you're right. I just checked the Embassy playlist and all of whutt's videos have been 'removed by user'. Too bad, they were all pretty great. You'd have to ask him why he decided to take them down.

oo-ru, oo-ru, u-r-u:
journey's end comes round again
cycling spiraling in a light bound home
among misty clouds in Realto Isle,
where mystic lovers of the Myst
find solace in Yeesha's newest gift.

Chorus:
oo-ru, oo-ru, u-r-u;
hidden clues reveal the fool:
touch the cloth that lights the hand,
and seven times be quick and fleet;
so find your way where Bahro holds
the secret poles of Uru's Land.

Simple steps all shall take
where ash and sky meet Bahro cries,
and hidden pathways find them out
where linking Ages tap their hearts;
and no one knows just where they'll go,
but all paths lead them back again
to the star cracked fissure in the dark
where light bound figures dance and sing
and a pledge of restoration is made
and sides must choose among themselves;
and memories keeper judges not
of love and war in the dark
where so long ago
evil ran its course in a City
below the starry floor.

Chorus:
oo-ru, oo-ru, u-r-u;
hidden clues reveal the fool:
touch the cloth that lights the hand,
and seven times be quick and fleet;
so find your way where Bahro holds
the secret poles of Uru's Land.


You may fall beyond the sun
and never touch the hidden moon,
but you will find the dream book
wizened Mistress of the Great Art
who leads you unto mysteries
you never fathomed in your earthly sleep:
where journey's challenge puzzles you
among the D'ni lands of old,
and causes you anxious days and nights;
but in the end you'll find your true life,
and walk among your own kind
hand in hand, explorers guide
each to each, proud and free
in endless ages of delight,
where once again the self you are
is known to all, far and wide, as Uru.

Chorus:
oo-ru, oo-ru, u-r-u;
hidden clues reveal the fool:
touch the cloth that lights the hand,
and seven times be quick and fleet;
so find your way where Bahro holds
the secret poles of Uru's Land.


-- earthwiz for all his friends... :wink:
