The Lyrics

I just finished reading the Tween book "The City of Embers" which tells the tale of an underground city of 400 that are unaware of the world above them, destroyed 241 years previously. A group of unknown Builders had constructed the city of Ember as humanity's last hope of survival, but made sure that they knew nothing of the outside world until the proper time. Power for the city had been underground Hydroelectric through the Pipeworks, but only for 200 years. 41 years overdue and the Generator is going out, leaving scared residents in total darkness. All the food and material stores are also depleted. No one knows what to do because the Instructions from the Builders have been lost for generations... until Lina Mayfleet, a courier, discovers them in pieces and with the help of Doon Harrow must figure out this enigma in time to save Ember. They ultimately put the pieces together and attempt to find the upper world of light. A very cool book and there is a movie as well (never seen it). Here, I am doing a brief plot synopsis with the lyrics...
Below, below
Unknown edge of darkness

Below, below
Unknown edge of darkness

Darkness!
Pipeworks
Darkness!
Pipeworks
Darkness!
Pipeworks
Darkness!
BLACKOUTS!!!

Ember is an underground city
Where everyone works to meet basic needs
Population isolation- insane
But only two dream of being freed

An exit found, exit found, found
Egress out of town, egress out of town

[Chorus]
Pair of Lina and Doon, fight the impending doom
The unknown edge of Darkness, scary!
Pair of Lina and Doon, fight the impending doom
The unknown edge of Darkness, scary!

Below, below
Unknown edge of darkness

Below, below
Unknown edge of darkness

Darkness!
Pipeworks
Darkness!
Pipeworks
Darkness!
Pipeworks
Darkness!
BLACKOUTS!!!

The Instructions found are puzzling
Underground river is the only way
Markings lead to rungs down to doorway
And a panel with a hidden key

An exit found, exit found, found
Egress out of town, egress out of town

Pair of Lina and Doon, fight the impending doom
The unknown edge of Darkness, scary!
Pair of Lina and Doon, fight the impending doom
The unknown edge of Darkness, scary!

Below, below
Unknown edge of darkness

Below, below
Unknown edge of darkness

[Bridge]
Builders plan doesn’t make sense,
Insider the river’s currents
Huge tunnels, with a foul stench, boggle the mind
But at the edge of darkness
A cavern pathway makes sense
Notice, provides evidence,
Of an upper world of sunshine

So high above view,
The outer world the Builders once came through
Now we have a breakthrough,
A way to come to Ember’s swift rescue
A rescue!

Pair of Lina and Doon, fight the impending doom
The unknown edge of Darkness, scary!
Pair of Lina and Doon, fight the impending doom
The unknown edge of Darkness, scary!

Below, below
Unknown edge of darkness

Below, below
Unknown edge of darkness

Darkness!
Pipeworks
Darkness!
Pipeworks
Darkness!
Pipeworks
Darkness!
BLACKOUTS!!!

MUST GET OUT!!!
