Finally, the Dave Strider fansong I promised you all ages ago! The third installment in a set of four Homestuck songs I’m doing, one for each of the beta kids. Jade and Rose have already been done.

This song was a bit different in the vocal style for most of the other songs I’ve done before, but I’m quite happy with how it turned out! ABSOLUTELY WEAR HEADPHONES FOR THE FULL HELLA RAD EFFECT.
•••
Time is on my side but I don’t know which side I’m on, you see ‘cause
I do not abide by rules that don’t agree with me, you see

But what if I’m the rule-maker, rule-breaker, rule-maker, or some future deity?
Maybe I’m a world-creator, tool-breaker, sword-taker from all these dead bodies?

I guess I’m finding life is turning on a dime
I’d reach for the stars but it’s too high a climb
I’m a paradox abomination, a most ironic crime
‘cause I’m the god of clockwork and I’m running out of time.

I was born on rock and raised on top of clocks and fire-sea
now here we are on this dead star on some new messed Odyssey

But what if there is more to it, more to it, fuck; screw it, we’re now nearly halfway there.
What if I got left behind, in my mind, back in time, and now I’m just hot air?

I’m running out of time, and I’m running far away
and I would give a lifetime if I could live another day
and I’d be worth a thousand words if I’d something left to say
I guess the world is now my playground, but I don’t want to play

because I’m running out of answers and I’m running out of rhymes
and I’m running out of comebacks, and different ways to die
so if you ever need me, I’ll be on the other side
because I’m the god of clockwork, and I’m running out of time.

Red blood and red sleeves and flash floods and light thieves
Time scratch and disk hacks and timelines and white lies
(Sear my mind, seer mind – paint my heart black as dark
day and night, Knight and Page, Heir and Witch, Prince and Maid)
(And off and on and off again I hope this sick beat never ends
then maybe I can get some sleep, though I can never again dream)

This is a song parody of Wicked’s “Popular,” instead sung by Vriska rather than Glenda. The parody was written by cronus-ampoophead and awkwardvriska. Vriska and Tavros were both sung and voiced by crokrikat!

Lyrics:

(Spoken)
VRISKA: Tavros, now that we’re friends, I’ve decided to make you my new project.
TAVROS: wOW VRISKA,
TAVROS: yOU, uH, yOU REALLY DONT HAVE TO DO THAT
VRISKA: I know! That’s what makes me so nice!

(Sung)
VRISKA:
Whenever I see someone less powerful than I,
And lets face it, who isn’t less powerful than I?
My tender heart tends to start to 8leed.
And when someone is a pushover,
I simply HAVE to take over!
I know, I know, exactly what they need

And even in your case (Tavros),
Though it’s the toughest case I’ve yet to face
Don’t worry, I’m determined to succeed.
Follow my lead,
And yes, indeed. You will 8e…

Confident!
You’re gonna 8e confident!
I’ll teach you the way to walk
show you how to talk
tips on how to bang the clowns! (ooh!)
I’ll show you what clothes to wear
how to spike your hair
Everything that really counts to 8e…

Confident!
I’ll help you 8e confident!
You’ll fight the right cohorts
You’ll destroy their forts
Know the moves you gotta know!
So let’s start,
Cause you’ve got an awfully long way to go!

Don’t be offended by my frank analysis
Think of it as fortitude dialysis!
Now that I’ve chosen to 8ecome your
pal, a matesprit, and your advisor
,
There 8n’t no8ody wiser!
Not when it comes to…

Confident!
I know about confident.
And with an assist from me
to 8e who you’ll 8e
instead of pathetic who you were…Well, are
There’s nothing that can stop you,
from 8ecoming confident.. dar?

La la, la la!
We’re gonna make you confident!

When I see pitiful creatures
With sagged shoulders and sad features
I remind them on their own 8ehalf
to think of
Those low8lood[ed?] re8el leaders
Or those 8adass subjuggul8rs!
Were they weak or insecure?
Don’t make me laugh!

They were CONFIDENT!
Please
It’s all about confidence!
It’s not about aptitude
It’s your attitude!
So it’s really gr8 to be
Very very confident
like ME!

(Spoken)
Vriska: Hey, Toreadum8ass, I think you’re getting it!
Vriska: Now clim8 up those stairs!
Tavros: aRE YOU CRAZY? i CANT DO THAT!
Vriska: Not with that attitude!
Tavros: gOODBYE, vRISKA,
Vriska: (sigh) You’re welcome…

(Sung)
Vriska:
And though you protest,
Your disinterest
I’m so sure that you’ll be
You’re gonna live to bear it
Your newfound tenacity !(yeah!)

la la, la la!
You’ll 8e confident!
Just not quite as confident as MEEEEEEEE!
(spoken) after all, who could EVER 8e as confident as me?

See the Light- (Parody of Lights by Ellie Goulding)

So I started a youtube channel for my fansongs/parodies as well. The above is the latest one I’ve done, the Lights parody for Rose.  The Even in Death lyrical rewrite is up already as well. I’ll be uploading No Surprise and Call for Me(Calliope) soon. :)

Lyrics: Bro of mine, one day you will die

With Sburb far behind, you will go into the dark

Free of twisted games and neverending dreams

You won’t need to scream when death silences your heart

 -

When the forces behind Earth decide you have proved your worth

And your final rival has you pinned down in the dirt

If you worry you’ll be lonely when he hits his mark

I’ll be waiting for you in the dark

 -

I died for a bird skewered with a sword

But he wore your face so what else could I do?

I could not allow my brother to go down

But I taught you strength, so I know you can pull through

 -

When the forces behind Earth decide you have proved your worth

And your final rival has you pinned down in the dirt

If you worry you’ll be lonely when he hits his mark

I’ll be waiting for you in the dark

 -

I wish I had no fear now you’ve reached God Tier

That you’ll meet me here where the sun never burns

But little bro, I raised a hero

So deep down I know your immortality can’t last

 -

When the forces behind Earth decide you have proved your worth

And your final rival has you pinned down in the dirt

If you worry you’ll be lonely when he hits his mark

I’ll be waiting for you in the dark

I’ll be waiting for you in the dark
