Music Parody (Week 3)

I will state this now, I don’t want to have to post these assignments into different posts. It’s so disorganized and I hate it. But here it is! This was a fun challenge I did once before in the past (using a different song). I followed the same rhyming scheme, syllable count, and how many words were in each line. What came out of it was this.

This assignment can be found here. It is 3 stars.

I did this parody based on this song

The lyrics of the original song written down if you would like to try it yourself.:
(The kids in the dark, the kids in the dark)
(The kids in the dark, the kids in the dark)

Here we are
At the end of the road – a road that’s quietly caving in
Come too far to pretend that we don’t – we don’t miss where we started
Looking back, I see a setting sun, and watch my shadow fade into the floor
I am left standing on the edge
Wondering how we got this far, (how we got this far…)

They left us alone
The kids in the dark
To burn out forever
Or light up a spark
We come together
State of the art
We’ll never surrender
The kids in the dark
So let the world sing
“What a shame
What a shame
Beautiful scars
On critical veins”
Come together
State of the art
We’ll never surrender
The kids in the dark
The kids in the dark

(The kids in the dark, the kids in the dark)

Here we are at the top of the hill – a hill that’s quietly crumbling
Been a while since you dressed for the kill- the kill that sent me tumbling
Looking up, I see a falling star, and watch its fire burn into the floor
I am left standing on the edge
Wondering why we fall so hard, why we fall so hard

They left us alone
The kids in the dark
To burn out forever
Or light up a spark
We come together
State of the art
We’ll never surrender
The kids in the dark
So let the world sing
“What a shame
What a shame
Beautiful scars
On critical veins”
Come together
State of the art
We’ll never surrender
The kids in the dark
The kids in the dark

Whoa
Whoa (The kids in the dark, the kids in the dark)
Whoa
Whoa

They left us alone
The kids in the dark
To burn out forever
Or light up a spark
We come together
State of the art
We’ll never surrender
The kids in the dark
So let the world sing
“What a shame
What a shame
Beautiful scars
On critical veins”
Come together
State of the art
We’ll never surrender
The kids in the dark
The kids in the dark

(The kids in the dark, the kids in the dark)
We’ll never surrender
The kids in the dark
The kids in the dark

My Lyrics:
The wolf in the dark, the wolf in the dark
The wolf in the dark, the wolf in the dark

There they are
At the start of the life – a life that’s amusingly started
Come to far pretend that you don’t – you don’t miss where you started
Looking back, you see the rising sun, watch the shadow rise on the floor
You are left, sitting on the ledge
Wondering how life treats you well, how life treats you well

You are left alone
The wolf in the dark
To howl on forever
To snarl or to bark
You leave whenever
State of the mark
You’ll never endeavor
The wolf in the dark
So let your pack howl
What a song
What a song
Beautiful claws
On critical paws
Leave whenever
State of the mark
You’ll never endeavor
The wolf in the dark
The wolf in the dark

The wolf in the dark, the wolf in the dark

There you are on the edge of the ledge – a ledge that’s suddenly breaking
Been awhile from you last scent of fresh kill – a kill that sent you retaking
Growing up, you see a setting moon, and see it’s light melt into the ground
You are left, sitting on the ledge
Wondering how life treats you well, how life treats you well

You are left alone
The wolf in the dark
To howl on forever
To snarl or to bark
You leave whenever
State of the mark
You’ll never endeavor
The wolf in the dark
So let your pack howl
What a song
What a song
Beautiful claws
On critical paws
Leave whenever
State of the mark
You’ll never endeavor
The wolf in the dark
The wolf in the dark

Arrroooo
Arrroooo the wolf in the dark
Arrroooo
Arrroooo

You are left alone
The wolf in the dark
To howl on forever
To snarl or to bark
You leave whenever
State of the mark
You’ll never endeavor
The wolf in the dark
So let your pack howl
What a song
What a song
Beautiful claws
On critical paws
Leave whenever
State of the mark
You’ll never endeavor
The wolf in the dark
The wolf in the dark

The wolf in the dark, the wolf in the dark
You’ll never endeavor
The wolf in the dark
The wolf in the dark
