Last Serving Daughter AU

Hope In The Air

Laura Marling

He opened his mouth on Judgement Day
I listened with all of my might
But was scared by the look in his eyes
Like he'd already lost the fight
And there was no hope ever in sight

Pick up your rope, Lord, sling it to me
If we are to battle, I must not be weak
And give us your strength, lord, and your food, and your water
Oh, I am your saviour, your last serving daughter

Wolf Count

The Mountain Goats

Find a clearing in the forest
Wait for word from the battlefront
Sing to the moon until your throat's raw
The Lord of the manor --
He won't be coming back from the hunt

Soon it'll be my time to go
I know
Breach the perimeter with my brethren
Know who your friends are when you need them
Sleep soundly with the enemy
And remember me --
Too dumb to trade his cloak for freedom

The Horror and the Wild

The Amazing Devil

You're the daughter of silent watching stones
You watch the stars hurl all their fundaments
In wonderment, at you and yours, forever asking more

All the stones and kings of old will hear us screaming at the cold
Remember me I ask, remember me I sing

Think of all the horrors that I
Promised you I'd bring
I promise you, they'll sing of every
Time you passed your fingers through my hair and called me child
Witness me, old man, I am the Wild
You are the son of every dressing up box
And I am Time itself, I slow to let you play
I steal the hours and turn the night into day
Day by day, oh lord, three things I pray
That I might understand as best as I can
How bold I was, could be - will be - still am, by God still am
Fret not dear heart, let not them hear
The mutterings of all your fears, the fluttering of all your wings
Welcome to the storm, I am thunder
Welcome to my table, bring your hunger

Eat Your Young - Bekon's Choral Version


Honey, I wanna race you to the table
If you hesitate, the gettin' is gone
I won't lie if there's somethin' to be gained
There's money to be made, whatever's still to come

Get some
Pull up the ladder when the flood comes
Throw еnough rope until the legs havе swung
Seven new ways that you can eat your young

My Eyes

The Lumineers

Oh, the devil's inside
You opened the door, you gave him a ride
Too young to know, too old to admit
That you couldn't see how it ends

You always confused your servants for friends
But you couldn't see how it ends
It's all or nothing to you
What did you do to my eyes?
What did you say to my only child?


Rina Sawayama

I'm gonna take the throne this time
All the words all mine, all mine
It's been way too long, too far
Too gone, to carry on
You can't hide it in the walls
Sweep it under marble floors
It's been living in our lives
Passed on down family lines
(Anything to carry down our)
The pain in my vein is hereditary
Running in my bloodstream, my bloodstream
And if that's all that I'm gonna be
Won't you break the chain with me?

(Hurting inside, no end in sight)
(Passing it down, am I losing this fight?)

(Now it's my time to make things right)
And if I fail, then I am my dynasty

Blood // Water - Acoustic


Look me in my eyes
Tell me everything's not fine
Oh, the people ain't happy
And the river has run dry
You thought you could go free
But the system is done for
If you listen real closely
There's a knock at your front door

We'll never get free, lamb to the slaughter
What you gon' do when there's blood in the water?
The price of your greed is your son and your daughter
What you gon' do when there's blood in the water?

It Will Come Back


You know better, babe, you know better, babe
Than to look at it, look at it like that
You know better, babe, you know better, babe
Than to talk to it, talk to it like that
Don't give it a hand, offer it a soul
Honey, make this easy
Leave it to the land, this is what it knows
Honey, that's how it sleeps
Don't let it in with no intention to keep it
Jesus Christ, don't be kind to it
Honey, don't feed it, it will come back
You know better, babe, you know better, babe
Than to smile at me, smile at me like that
You know better babe, you know better babe
Than to hold me just, hold me just like that
I know who I am when I'm alone
I'm something else when I see you
You don't understand, you should never know
How easy you are to need
Don't let me in with with no intention to keep me
Jesus Christ, don't be kind to me
Honey, don't feed me, I will come back
It can't be unlearned
I've known the warmth of your doorways
Through the cold, I'll find my way back to you
Oh, please, give me mercy no more
That's a kindness you can't afford

God Is Alive Magic Is Afoot

Buffy Saint-Marie

Alive is afoot, magic never died

Many poor men lied, many sick men lied
Magic never weakened, magic never hid
Magic always ruled, God is afoot

God was ruler
Though his funeral lengthened
Though his mourners thickened
Magic never fled
Though his shrouds were hoisted, the naked God did live
Though his words were twisted, the naked magic thrived
Though his death was published 'round and 'round the world
The heart did not believe
Many hurt men wondered, many struck men bled
Magic never faltered, magic always led
Many stones were rolled but God would not lie down
Magic is afoot, God rules
Alive is afoot, alive is in command
Many weak men hungered
Many strong men thrived
Though they boasted solitude, God was at their side

Though laws were carved in marble
They could not shelter men
Though altars built in parliaments, they could not order men
Police arrested magic, and magic went with them
For magic loves the hungry

But magic would not tarry, it moves from arm to arm
It would not stay with them, magic is afoot
It cannot come to harm, it rests in an empty palm
It spawns in an empty mind, but magic is no instrument
Magic is the end

Many men drove magic, and magic stayed behind
Many strong men lied
They only passed through magic and out the other side
Many weak men lied, they came to God in secret
And though they left him nourished
They would not tell who healed
Though mountains danced before them
They said that God was dead
Though his shrouds were hoisted, the naked God did live
This I mean to whisper to my mind
This I mean to laugh with in my mind
This I mean my mind to serve 'til service is but magic
Moving through the world
And mind itself is magic coursing through the flesh
And flesh itself is magic dancing on a clock
And time itself, the magic length of God

Sigh No More

Mumford & Sons

Serve God, love me and mend
This is not the end
Live unbruised, we are friends
And I'm sorry, I'm sorry
Sigh no more, no more

My heart was never pure
You know me, you know me
But man is a giddy thing

Love, it will not betray you
Dismay or enslave you, it will set you free
Be more like the man you were made to be
There is a design, an alignment
A cry of my heart to see
The beauty of love as it was made to be
