Rose's Rebellion

about

Someone said that my music wasn't progressive enough recently. Too bad.

When I wrote this not much was known about the War against "Homeworld" that Rose Quartz led in Steven Universe... I sort of imagined it going something like this.

I re-recorded guitars on this one compared to the single. It's a lot tighter now.

lyrics

Millenia in the past humanity had just awoken
An ageless race came to us, who knew our home would be broken
We gladly served our Goddess, upon her throne of rose
The shine in her eyes dimmed, the coming terror undisclosed

"All life deserves a chance”
She cried to diamonds from the sky
They didn’t give us a second glance
She went to war with her own kind

This global Disease was sapient, injecting themselves into the ground
Siphoned the life from our planet, then came death and famine
Apathetic to all the damage, Gods uncaring if we could manage

She couldn’t stand our pain
She leapt to battle, tears in her eyes
Her kin had become monsters
Leaving another species to die
"All life deserves a chance”
She cried to diamonds from the sky
They didn’t give us a second glance
She went to war with her own kind

So began the rebellion

She couldn’t stand our pain
She leapt to battle, tears in her eyes
She saw her own were monsters
Leaving another species to die
The war waged for centuries
They left, the rose shielded mankind
Only a few of her friends survived
To defend our home she stayed behind

There’s no such thing as a good war
