Sky Shanties!
« on: November 04, 2014, 07:28:16 pm »
Muse just posted two magnificent Sky shanties on their facebook page! I decided to make a dedicated post for them and I also tried to write down the lyrics.

Take to the Skies
Performed by Jacob Burgess and produced and orchestrated by Devin Vibert
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6xhp7T3P54s&feature=youtu.be

Take to the skies, me hearties, me hearties
Take to the skies, to the white above!
Take to the skies, me hearties, me hearties
Look for him no more, his love.

He took to the skies, me hearties, me hearties
He took to the skies her sweet, dear heart
He took to the skies, me hearties, me hearties
In that life, she'll never take part

Take to the skies, me hearties, me hearties
Take to the skies, in this age of air
Take to the skies, me hearties, me hearties
The freedom, the glory, nothing compares



He took to the skies, me hearties, me hearties
He took to the skies in a ship so strong
He took to the skies, me hearties, me hearties
Sky, rope and sail knot can never go wrong

He travels the skies, me hearties, me hearties
He travels the skies, to be some captains fodder
He travels the skies, me hearties, me hearties
And there she stays, a poor tanner's daughter

Take to the skies, me hearties, me hearties
Take to the skies, in this age of air
Take to the skies, me hearties, me hearties
The freedom, the glory, nothing compares



They fight in the skies, me hearties, me hearties
They fight in the skies, oh blast down these cursed
They fight in the skies, me hearties, me hearties
They are defeated, his last thoughts of her

Take to the skies, me hearties, me hearties
Take to the skies, do this tale do you hark?
Take to the skies, me hearties, me hearties
A new fire burns, it takes but a spark

She looks to the skies, me hearties, me hearties
She looks to the skies, and her father's ark
She looks to the skies, me hearties, me hearties
What has she now to mend her heart?


He roams in the skies, me hearties, me hearties
He roams in the skies, oh grave prize he paid
He roams in the skies, me hearties, me hearties
He'd the best of intent, now she loves but a shade.

The call of the skies, me hearties, me hearties
The call of the skies, tis there shall she rise
The call of the skies, me hearties, me hearties
Rage curled in her gut she takes to the skies

Follow her to the skies, me hearties, me hearties
Follow her to the skies, or grew faint have they heard
Follow her to the skies, me hearties, me hearties
The devil on their heel, she'll see them burn

Take to the skies, for people,  for country
Take to the skies, for passion or fame
Take to the skies, for freedom or glory
No matter the reason, it amounts to the same

Take to the skies, me hearties, me hearties
Take to the skies, in this age of air
Take to the skies, me hearties, me hearties
The freedom, the glory, nothing compares

Air Shanty (aka Spot the Skies)
by Jig To A Milestone
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_FDFUusqTy8&feature=youtu.be

Engies top deck, gunner right
Fire straight, boys, don't lose sight
Allies hear we're moving in
Let's hope they don't give up the fight.

Engies running, hitting, gunning
Captains calling, yelling, balling
Round the deck, boys, round we go
Far above the ground below


Lesmok in the Lumberjack
Nothing you can do now don't look back
Burn the engines straight ahead
Ram that Goldfish in the red

Engies running, hitting, gunning
Captains calling, yelling, balling
Round the deck, boys, round we go
Far above the ground below


First the Gatling then the Mortar
Nothing's faster than that order
No one's following the captain's orders
Fire those Greased Rounds faster

Engies running, hitting, gunning
Captains calling, yelling, balling
Round the deck, boys, round we go
Far above the ground below


Flaming left then flaming right
Ships can't get out of its sights
Speediest beast in all the skies
Nothing's glassy as Squid's eyes

Engies running, hitting, gunning
Captains calling, yelling, balling
Round the deck, boys, round we go
Far above the ground below


Canyons tall, the battle's on
Can not see out of this damn fog
Drums are beating in my ears
Where the hell did they go

Engies running, hitting, gunning
Captains calling, yelling, balling
Round the deck, boys, round we go
Far above the ground below


Hero flying in the rear
Galleon's turning so I hear
Nothing you can greater fear
Than a full Hwacha volley

Engies running, hitting, gunning
Captains calling, yelling, balling
Round the deck, boys, round we go
Far above the ground below


Ally's gone, we're all alone
The Spire's sniping, aruah
Kept him off us long enough
Ready for our last hurrah

Engies running, hitting, gunning
Captains calling, yelling, balling
Round the deck, boys, round we go
Far above the ground below


Engies running, hitting, gunning
Captains calling, yelling, balling
Spot the skies, boys, use your eyes
The ground is rising as we die



These lyrics probably aren't perfect, but it's the best I could do. If someone spots a mistake, please tell me!

Now, lets try to spread these songs through the entire community! I want the entire crew to pitch in if I start singing this.

They are both great but I like the "Spot the Skies" better for the multiple voices on the chorus. If it were not for the mic lag I would love to have a sing along in the lobby.

Love those two shanties, though I'm one of the guys who will randomly burst into singing Drunken Sailor in the lobby...
I should sing three dirty goblins more often...

I hear "Pyra flying in the rear" out of that first line.

awesome though, I'm happy to see a thread dedicated to this.  I would love to see more.

Take To The Skies has been on my iPod for 2 weeks now, can't get enough of it!

(On the plus side, done exams for now, so I can play more GoIO! :D)
