Run to the Hills - Run for your life
« on: January 27, 2009, 11:33:22 pm »
"While many does not expect it, the goblin tribes of Cerilia have an oral tradition stretching back millenia. A careful listener, if learned in the goblin tongue, would be able to hear this song around the fireplaces in the former Markazor provinces:"


"Pinkskins came across the plains
Brought us pain and misery
Killed our tribes killed our creed
Took our game for his own need

Run to the Hills, run for your lives
Run to the Hills, run for your lives

We fought him hard we fought him well
Out on the plains we gave him hell
But many came too much for we
Oh will we ever be set free?

Run to the Hills, run for your lives
Run to the Hills, run for your lives

Riding through dustclouds and barren wastes
Galloping hard on the plains
Chasing us goblins back to our holes
Killing when peace should be named
Murder for land a stab in the back
Women and children and cowards attack

Run to the Hills, run for your lives
Run to the Hills, run for your lives..."

Hey Niels, that's pretty good.  I dusted off my Iron Maiden CD, fired it up, and read your lyrics.  Nicely done!

Thank you!

It just sprang to mind when I studied the whole scenario that were unfolding... Indigineous people, disregarded as little more than beasts, there were so many parallels and the Iron Maiden version is so full of energy and the lyrics certainly deep and growly enough that a goblin could have been performing.  ;D

Very nice song.

I'm thinking Jimi Hendrix's "All along the watchtower" might be another fun song that could be tweaked for events in RoE...  Hmmm....
