The Lyrics

This song was tricky to get the rhyming structure right. Anyways, this is the song about the Defunctory. The warehouse hangout of Picket Gate and his friends. I would consider it akin to a Simpsons episode, in how Bart Simpson acquired a run down warehouse for cheap, and for fun, but this time it is well taken fare of. This song sets a montage from past to present and how each member of Picket's anti-magic crew contributed to its refurbishment. Consider this a secondary site for S.A.E.M. operations. The primary site being in conjunction with Crystal Prep's student government (yeah that school has one), in trying to get the moral high ground. Also, I am trying to get more characters to sing these songs as seen
(news of enrolment in Canterlot High School drops as parents move students out, funding for CHS is slowing)(“We want to assure the parents that this school is safer now that the statue is off grounds, a new statue is in the process of being erected in its place”)(“Sold! new leased property for Snowmound Pile.” “…decommissioned factory in state of repair/maintenance”)(“Don’t worry I’ve got help”)

(Snowmound Pile sings)
We got a bio-metric login key
Security cameras, for you to see
If you need to cleanse, then this is the place to be

We got a medical lab and room to heal
Got an… exer-cise room
Got a fully stocked pantry with canned goods to cook for us
We got fluorescent light
Sleeping quarters on site
With machinery, and equipment to build
Just as the blue prints show
With a second floor board room
And a conference phone line to
In our second home

(Ivy Drip Sings)
There is an archaic, weapons shed
A second look, may fill you with dread
But it’s for display, not a reason to spill blood
There’s a T1, mainframe server station
A generator, to maintain
Recreational games and activities for our domain

(Retrogradient Sings)
We’ve got to, pay our dues*
To maintain what we can use
But not for a real world escape (escape, escape, escape, escape, escape, escape,)
Wooooooooow see!! all the space we can roam
In our second home

(Snowmound)
I see activity in a deserted field
Some new power they will not yield**

(TV and Radio broadcasts of secret military operations and portal discovery [new news])(legal action sought from architect of statue against Twilight Sparkle and family for liability)(settlement reached, academic record smeared)
*by dues, each person does have a job and donates part of their salary to keeping this place working. Picket Gate works at a Paintball Park, working at front and/or cleaning the field areas of paint. Ivy Drip works as a pharmacy cashier, checking prescriptions, etc.. Scalding Wok has been working at his family's B&B kitchen for tips and helping out other areas of the hotel part-time. Retrogradient works at an auction house preparing/curating items to be sold and arranging storage/inventory for any other antiques that need to be sold. Snowmound Pile works at the same electronics store that Twilight Sparkle does but at different shifts He works on customer service sections mostly (not really challenging to him but legal and clean). Lightning Dust works at the same sports apparel store as Rainbow Dash (which further stems competition between them since she can't help but use magic) but in different areas. However, she is more of a sales support rep., helping customers explain the items in the store, trying to encourage the sale. Their jobs do not conflict with their education at Canterlot High School in any way. ** Still think that Equestria is disconnected to the human world? Think again. This ties back to the story later. Next Track: Human Sunset.

Nice. Perfect pace, nicely rhymed, set a scene and moved the story forward. You are getting better with every one of these!
