We should play this after its all over, for all our fallen comrades lost on the battlefield.
YouTube - Fare Thee Well MechWarrior



Fare Thee Well MechWarrior


Mechwarrior...


Cling thee not to this world


As it holds for you no more


But listen...


Listen for the song from afar


And heed the lilting call of the lands that awaits...


Let the final breath slip from your pierced chest


And your broken hands fall from the stick


Bend your bloody brow to this life, and let tumble the shattered helm that once cradled your head


Leave behind these acrid smokes of the fields


These swirling battlegrounds of charred metal, bone, and flesh


Depart from the flashing fires that filled your eyes with destruction


And abandon the burning hulk of steel and crimson that was your mount


Hold not to this realm, but hasten


Hasten down the twisting path to the mountains


To the dark mountains and beyond


And across the shimmering sea


Voyage then, voyage thee well Mechwarrior


Voyage thee well and long


Cross the great divide, and find the land that beckons with its sirens song


Where swords and strife can not follow


Nor can cruel laser and cold gauss reach


Where rolling hills of soft sun, and velvet grasses embrace


And quiet waters sooth your beleaguered soul


Then, lay thee down Mechwarrior, lay thee down and sleep


Dream the dreams of victors


Loose the silver cord


And find your peace complete


Fare thee well Mechwarrior


Fare thee well...

No, 'cause Tybs probably wouldn't care for the DMCA mess that followed.

DMCA mess?

Digital Millenium Copyright Act -- that thing that makes it illegal to copy copyrighted electronic media.. I'm guessing Jodie assumed that song might be from the game? It appears to have been created by a private person...

However, there is no copyright information listed. Best rule of thumb, is that unless specifically covered under a Creative Commons or similar license, you best get written permission to use it.... Lawyers and litigation is a real pain...

Hi guys.

Yeah, I used the music without permission, but the words are mine. The images are from the MekTek gallery and I assume are available for fair use. I could do a remix without the music. I would also want to ask George Ledoux for his permission to use his work (the reading) outside of Youtube.

BTW, that's "..beleaguered soul", not "believed soul". :wink:
