terra song

Experimenting on my new coloring style again, victim number 2 here is the lovely Terra from the Teen Titans animated series. This time is mostly trying to draw better eyes and perform better lighting.

Also I was looping the song “Last Stardust” by Aimer while drawing Terra, it really saddens me when I looked up the lyric and think of what happened to Terra, the song is good and recommended by me!

Seven devils all around me!
Seven devils in my house!
See they were there when I woke up this morning
I’ll be dead before the day is done

Seven devils all around you
Seven devils in your house
See I was dead when I woke up this morning
I’ll be dead before the day is done
Before the day is done

Get it? Because Deb was Australian … and … Silas, Canadian … basically I’ve been listening to a lot of shanties and feeling colonial lately.

The story goes* that no one on the expedition could carry a tune, but that didn’t stop them singing with gusto at any opportunity.  No wonder the penguins were curious; it must have sounded amazing.

For five hours the company has been sitting round the table singing lustily; we haven’t much talent, but everyone has contributed more or less, and the choruses are deafening.  It is rather a surprising circumstance that such an unmusical party should be so keen on singing.

Song of Terra

Song of Terra

“Sing me a song,” said the child in the garden.
“Grandmother, sing! I’ll sit here by your side.
Sing me a song of the world they call Terra,
The world that you came from when you were a bride.”

“Child I have journeyed all over the starfields
Out to the rim of the worlds that we know–
Child, I can’t sing you a song about Terra!
For Terra was too many planets ago!

“Sing me a song,” said the child in the garden
“Grandmother, sing to me!  Tell me no lies.
Sing me a song of the world they call Terra;
I know you remember, by the tears in your eyes.”

“Child I have journied all over the starfields;
Child, I have left all my memories behind.
Child, I can’t sing you a song about Terra,
For I have put Terra clear out of my mind.”

“Grandmother, sing!” said the child in the garden.
“I have learned all about stubborn from you.
Sing me a song of the world they call Terra,
Where the grasses grow green and the oceans are blue.”

“Child how you weary me, asking of Terra!
You are no babe!  You should understand why…
We who left Terra for ever and ever
Were those who could tell her forever goodbye.”

A haunting space song by Suzette Haden Elgin, who passed away this year.

Sung by Mark Heiman at Carleton College’s (well, Carleton’s nerd club’s) annual Filk Night in 2014.  It’s a hard song to find recordings of, so I’m grateful he’s letting me post this.

Siamo la sorpresa dietro i vetri scuri; 
Siamo la risata dentro il tunnel degli orrori; 
Siamo la promessa che non costa niente; 
Siamo la chiarezza che voleva molta gente. 
Siamo il capitano che vi fa l'inchino; 
Siamo la ragazza nel bel mezzo dell'inchino; 
Siamo i trucchi nuovi per i maghi vecchi; 
Siamo le ragazze nella sala degli specchi. 
Siamo il culo sulla sedia, il dramma, la commedia, 
il facile rimedio; 
Siamo l'arroganza che non ha paura; 
Siamo quelli a cui non devi chiedere fattura. 
Siamo yeee yeee…il sale della terra! 
Siamo l'opinione sotto libro paga; 
Siamo le riunioni qui nel retro di bottega; 
Siamo le figure dietro le figure; 
Siamo la vergogna che fingiamo di provare. 
Siamo il culo sulla sedia, la farsa, la tragedia, 
il forte sotto assedio; 
Siamo la vittoria della tradizione; 
Siamo furbi che più furbi di così si muore. 
Siamo yeee yeee…il sale della terra! 
Siamo la freddezza che non ha paura; 
Siamo quel tappeto steso sulla spazzatura; 
Siamo la Montblanc con cui ti faccio fuori; 
Siamo la risata dentro il tunnel degli orrori.
