Ah, these songs seem to be making sense on their locations and the "feel" of the songs. Nice job everyone! :)

I've always loved Balcony, so...

You have made it
The summit
For the battle
The plummet

Many reach here
Fail the game
Now you must go
And not shame

Now, it is your one chance
To show your power
Defeat the Doctor
And save the tower

Go into the next room
And give it all you've got
With the spur in hand
You can make them rot

Go on now, save your game
Head onto the fame
You can now give them all
What you can roll

They all got to earn
What you will learn
The true art
That is inside your heart

...I can't believe I did that in 5 minutes. ^^

Defeat the doctor and save the tower? What tower?

Well, I assumed that the place where you fight Misery/the Doctor/the Core would be a tower since it goes beyond the clouds.

Sorry about the confusion. :)

The game takes place on a floating island, you know.

There's a tower. The tower is on a floating island. There are clouds wreathed around the tower. Let it go.

Undead core:

This is it... just gotta, destroy the core again
Your gonna save the world
There won't be any more plot twists
Okay there will
But this the last battle
So stop reading these made up lyrics and get to it!
Cause the fate of the world depends of you!
And you couldn't just blow the crown off the doctor
No you gotta defeat this core
Because The Doctor made it undead somehow!
Who gives a damn
I don't!
But do this anyway,
Cause you wanna beat the game
And you beat the other bosses...

Necro bump with content.

I was feeling inspired by Toroko's Song, so I wrote words for it. The lyrics dwell within the confines of the fourth wall: it's an old Mimish song about the Surface. The song has a background you're not aware of, because I made it up: it's Toroko's favorite song. Arthur would sing it as a lullaby for her. And because she loved it so much, it was played at her funeral.
Mimigas used to live on the Surface, but their homes were underground. Like rabbits. Or Hobbits. When the Island was lifted up with them on it, the exterior became inhospitable (wind, temperature, lack of water) and they eventually stopped going outside altogether. Now they treat the outside of the island how you would treat a sheer cliff.
The "Earthbound evil" mentioned in the song is also a product of my imagination. Suffice to say, there was a war, and the sky was safe. I might elaborate later.


Try to recall
Old Mother Earth's embrace,
The snowfall,
And rain stroking your face.

It's been long
Since we have seen the stars
Shining strong
Upon what once was ours.

Earthbound evil forced us to flee
The green fields and blue canopy.
It robbed us of the deep, wide sea,
Now these are only in our memory.

Does the Surface remember us?
Lament its lost Mimigas?
Can we go back to our mother Land?
Will we ever feel the sunshine firsthand?


In my head, the Mimiga belief in death is that you become a spirit, and you can roam anywhere like that. Toroko is now free to go back home and experience the Surface. This made the song extremely appropriate for a funeral.

I usually just start making up words along "This is fucking gaaaaaay" (moonsong) whenever I start to die a lot (usually within mods.)

Man, finally, someone who enjoys this so as much as I do.
How long did it take you to think of this?
P.S. SOMEONE SHOULD DO THESE USING VOCALOID.
Just sayin'

The idea has been in my head a long time, but I only started writing words this morning. So I guess it took me two hours. You can really tell.

Add a "so" so that it would be "It's been so long."

No So needed,

And a little Chorus i made for Toroko's theme


Here we live and we work and grow
On a floating island we will go,
Through the stars and through the clouds,
Living now or floating as our souls,

I've had the line "On a floating island we will go" in my head every time i listened to the song, just fits :)

It would be great if someone could post the notes of Toroko's song.

First of all, JetHawk, get your own song, don't try to change mine. I'm not sure if you noticed, but Toroko's Song doesn't have a chorus. There are only four stanzas.
SECOND!
Yeah, a "so" would be too many syllables.
And finally, Toroko's Song in org format.

Sadly, I've only ever thought up lyrics to the songs from the first Remix Project.

Well its the second Stanza, and chill its not like you own the song and you're lyrics were of pure quality and profession and no one else can ever post lyrics to Toroko's theme ever again or else you'll spit your dummy out and cry..
