Rose's Rebellion

by Cyril the Wolf

1.
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

about

Steven Universe has taken over my senses. It feels like 2011 all over again. Except this time, I'm a far better musician and can adequately express my adoration of this delightful work of animation. After becoming bolstered by doing a few covers (namely my "Lapis Lazuli" cover) and I had this idea of doing something epic about the Gem War or about the Kindergarten.

A few of my fans expressed disappointment that my recent work has not been very "progressive' so... here's something to make up for it.

Special thanks to Tarby for helping me reign in my complexity a little and The Ringo Zone podcast for tossing some lyrical ideas my way. :-)
