Music Friday Prompt #3 “The Last Steampunk Waltz”

Welcome to Music Prompt #3

Man, do I have a rare treat for you! A fellow blogger and I had a wonderful discussion about genres outside of the “safe” realm of Nineties music. Well I found a song from Ghostfire, a steampunk band popular in the UK.

Why should they have all the fun?

According to Ghostfire’s website,  the song  was originally dubbed ‘Calibernus’ which is the Latin name for the legendary sword Excalibur. The sword was thought to be irrevocably connected to the earth and forces of nature. It was renamed “The Last Waltz” in honor of steampunks who, caught up in the magic of Excalibur, waltzed like summoned men and women of old.

Legends spoken shall never fail
Every deed as hard as nails
She never speaks, she never smiles
The journey’s end of a thousand miles
Rings on her fingers and bells on her toes
Music to haunt us she knows

As she goes

Many years in a bed of rock

Too many turns of the season’s clock

She never smiles, she never speaks

The awful silence grows long and deep

Ghost light and candlelight show her the way

Onwards the dawn of the day
As they say

Stay with her, lay with her, carry her high

Swear an allegiance to things you can’t hide

She will find us again

She will bind us again

Lies won’t blind us again

Heavens bow to her reign
Once again

Into her arms below the ground

Eternity never made a sound

She never speaks, she never smiles

The journey ends in a thousand trials

Rings on her fingers and bells on her toes

Devils and demons alive alive-o
Follow us close as we go
As we know

    Here’s mine. It seems you used the same Mister Linky you used on the previous challenge, you need to generate a new code each time =)

    For some reason, the video won’t play, Yves, even searching on YouTube itself. Might just be at my end. I’ll try again once I’m on my laptop imstead of kindle. Wanted to let you know through in case theblink is broken.x

    Ah … Thank you. Very interesting. I will have to write something new for this… but it reminded me of another sword I created https://julesstorypageswhirl.wordpress.com/2014/11/22/11-21-c-7-4-the-ancient-sword-carificis-mlm-fariy-tale-35/ – Not Steam Punk, just a Latin name.

    I will put my new post (when I write it) in the linky as well as in a new comment.

    Okey Dokey

    Turns out to be more fairy tale than steam-punk, but amazingly enough the one link is to another MLMM prompt.

    Shall We Dance?

      Sorry. ..newbie here :/ I didn’t change the Mr Linky from the last one.

        Very interesting….Fits the theme.
        Almost more punk than steam.
        But it worked 😉

    Bohemian Nerd/Vagrant Rhodia.
    I’m debating what to post.
    #1: for me, a shocking piece of adult-contented fiction
    #2: The cleaner, non-adult content depressing stuff I usually do.

    Time to start an adult/mature themed blog that doesn’t make me blush.

      In my opinion I would put a “warning” on the adult themed post and have at it. It’s good to switch things up 🙂
