The Lyrics

This is an upload of an MLP-inspired parody that I've had to try and recall from memory.
I hear the drums echoing tonight,
Tears are only whispers of some quiet conversation.
She's coming in, guided by moonlight,
Sky-blue wings reflect the stars that guide us toward salvation.
I stopped an old mare along the way
Hoping to find some old forgotten words of ancient melodies,
She turned to me as if to say, "Run on, boy, it's waiting there for you!"

It's gonna take a lot to drag me away from you,
There's nothing that Celestia herself could ever do!
I guess the rain's down in Zebrica.
Gonna take some time to do the things we never had.

The diamond dogs cry out in the night
As they grow restless longing for some gemstones they can hoard for themselves.
I know that I must do what's right,
Sure as Canterlot rises like Olympus above Equestria.
I seem to cure what's deep inside, trying to get a hold of myself.

It's gonna take a lot to drag me away from you,
There's nothing that Celestia herself could ever do!
I guess the rain's down in Zebrica.
Gonna take some time to do the things we never had.

Hurry boy, it's waiting there for you.

It's gonna take a lot to drag me away from you,
There's nothing that Celestia herself could ever do!
I guess the rain's down in Zebrica.
I guess the rain's down in Zebrica.
I guess the rain's down in Zebrica.
I guess the rain's down in Zebrica.
I guess the rain's down in Zebrica.
Gonna take some time to do the things we never had.
This is not my original idea. I can't recall the name of the originator but he did upload his concept on DeviantArt but it seems to have gone missing, compromising my ability to consult with s/he over my decision to put this up here.
