about

This song is an attempt to look into Luna's psyche as she slowly progresses further and further toward becoming Nightmare Moon.

 On one hand, we wanted to show her downright enjoyment of going after revenge, and thinking she's giving her sister what she deserves. In NMM's mind, this is just glorious fun, and she wouldn't have it any other way.
 However, we also wanted to show the tragedy of this story. How in the end, what lead Luna to choose to go down this evil path was just her feeling lonely and rejected.

lyrics

A tattered swing on the northern wing
Of our castle it did lay
Where time would fly singing lullabies
Through the night and day

Now it stands there all alone
Not a soul upon it's chains
Like the kinship we once shared
No nothing now remains

Bada ba ba ba
Bada ba, badaba ba ba
Bada ba ba ba
Ba-bap, shoo-bap, shaba deeba daba da-bow
(x2)

We grew up then all to fast
Responsibility
Shrouds our hearts and turns our eyes
From our own minds' fragility

I did do my royal call
But sister got the fame
So I was left then all alone
with nothing to my name

So I started singin'...

Bada ba ba ba
Bada ba, badaba ba ba
Bada ba ba ba
Ba-bap, shoo-bap, shaba deeba daba da-bow
(x2)

For many years I waited here
So I could get my dues
And sister's sun sure didn't help
These lonesome midnight blues

Well I called your bluff, you've had enough
Now I will get my way
And very soon, princess of the sun
You'll turn to me to pray

I threw a ball to bring them all
The ponies far and wide
From miles around the day-rats came
Flaunting sickly pride

And as they swung; the old, the young
I stood and took the crown
Surprise buffoons, it's Nightmare Moon
And I'm taking over this one horse town

Bada ba ba ba
Bada ba, badaba ba ba
Bada ba ba ba
Ba-bap, shoo-bap, shaba deeba daba da-bow
(x2)

The battle fought was all for naught
And sister got her way
Banishment is what I got
To the moon so far away

A thousand years, yeah it'll be
Till you see me again
But when I'm back you can bet your bits
That Nightmare Moon will reign

And all the world sings...

Bada ba ba ba
Bada ba, badaba ba ba
Bada ba ba ba
Ba-bap, shoo-bap, shaba deeba daba da-bow
(x4)

A tattered swing on the northern wing
Of our castle it did lay
A metal heap where I did weep
Through the night and day
