    The Gods Must Be Lying

    Friend, Leader.



    An Apology

    View all

    Homestuck filk. An Eridan Ampora fansong I recorded with a sore throat and a headache, don't ask me why...but I kind of like the result.

    Homestuck(c)Andrew Hussie




    I am a prince and I live in a ship and I aim my rifle and I shoot from the hip
    and I have a friend I pity quite a bit
    she said “grab your gun let's have some fun, share with me your perigees
    I have responsibilities, I cannot run!”

    “I do not wish the death of any living thing,
    I might be a killer but one day I shall be queen
    and put an end to slaughter, but until then I'm keen
    on staking claim to land and sea and everyfin between.”

    I played a game with eleven fools who told me not to break the rules
    but when have angels ever helped me yet?
    and magic isn't real and anyway it doesn't matter
    cause no matter what I conjure it could not help be me deflect

    the angry death of every hopeful thought
    that I might be a lover or a fighter that I’m not
    in someones spider web or net I could be caught
    but I'm too bitter, better off alone, guess I forgot

    So what? Do you want me to say sorry?
    should I apologize, when you ignore me?
    I didn't ask to be right or to be lonely
    or to be hatched into an ugly story

    I am a prince and I had a pair of princesses in two sharp squares
    but then I guess I bored them both to death
    And now I think my calling is to break apart and fall to pieces
    better yet invent a brand new method of ascension

    I'm impressed, you've managed to survive
    but rest assured we'd all be better off dead than alive
    cause when they get a-hold of us we'll all be batter fried
    and I'm surprised that nobody's considered switching sides

    So here I am, respectfully and royally destroying
    any chance of getting back on your good gills
    And I don't want to be hurtful but if yellows the new purple
    well then bleeding's the new breathing, don't you think I will!

    I used to wish the death of every living thing
    I might be your killer but you'd never be my queen
    so put away your laughter, pack up your hopes and dreams
    I'm done with black back-handing and red pandering, it seems

    That I am just pathetic, I won't be overlooked
    I'm past the point of fishing to get back upon your hook
    I've made a manifesto, I've been bested by a crook, but never more!
    I'm planning on reclaiming what he took...

    So what? do you want me to say sorry?
    should I apologize, when you ignore me?
    I didn't ask to be right or to be lonely
    or to be hatched into an ugly story
    to be hatched into an ugly story

    Oh my, this pantomime is getting gory

    I am a prince and I live in a ship
    I am a prince and I live in a ship

      He DOES live in a ship. He lives in Erifef. BUT THEY CALL IT CANON BECAUSE IT PUTS HOLES IN YOUR SHIPS </3 Anyway. I love your singing. This song isn't why I like Eridan, I've liked him from the start, but it deepened my appreciation for him<3 Thank you for writing this, seriously c':

      After years of really, REALLY disliking Eridan, this song single-handedly got me to like him. Kudos, absolute kudos.

      This song is so perfect! The lyrics really tell Eridan's story very well! All your songs are wonderful! The lyrics are pure poetry! Keep it up!

      This is such a beautiful song. You have a gorgeous voice!
      I was wondering if you'd be able to write a tab for this? I would love to see how you play it.

      @monkeyfetus: It wasn't intentional (I had a sore throat at the time of recording) but I kinda like the effect anyway lol

      I noticed at this part you get a bit quiet and breathy, like you're not confident in your ability to hit the high notes. Is this what's happening, or are you intentionally softening your voice? I only noticed this just now, on what's somewhere around my 20th listen.

      I would purchase a fan album made entirely of your homestuck fansongs. These are wonderful.

      Your best yet. It's one thing to make a parody song like so many others have done, but writing original music AND brilliant lyrics AND having the talent to play and sing your song. You are unique among homestuck fans.
