about

While playing Dragon Age: Inquisition, I got really interested in the Friends Of Red Jenny, as a kind of fantasy mash up of Occupy Wall Street and an assassin's guild. And, ok, it didn't hurt that Sera was my favorite character in the game. So here's my murder ballad about a Jenny taking down another hateful member of the nobility.

lyrics

You leave the theater
Jolly and warm
Your friends are all laughing
Like the girl on your arm

The vagrants and drunkards
Who prowl night’s highstreet
Are no more your concern
Than that clerk you mistreat

But you should know better
Being trained, after all
By the greediest bastards
To know that the walls

Hear all you say,
And the shadows see you
And that in the world's gutters
Her secrets accrue

Yes you, you've done wrong
And tonight it's my duty to see you undone
We look out for our friends
So by blackmail or arrows, your oppression ends

One after another
Your friends leave the bar
For your final walk home
It’s just you and the stars

Around the last corner
You don’t hear my feet
As I drift through the darkness
My dagger unsheathed

But I want you to see me
A special request
From the clerk that you’ve tortured
Who’s safe home in bed

In your final moments
You’ll know that he’s won
On behalf of the lowborn
Red Jenny has come

Because you, you’ve done wrong
And tonight it's my duty to see you undone
We look out for our friends
So by blackmail or arrows, your oppression ends

Class casts a shadow
Long as the sun
And it’s in that darkness
That our work gets done

And much as she’d rather
Have nothing but fun
Jenny can’t rest
‘Til your fortune’s in ruins

Because you, you’ve done wrong
It’s forever her duty to see you undone
She looks out for her friends
So by blackmail or arrows, your oppression ends
