about

I've been planning to do a song about Nightmare Moon more or less since I started writing Pony music, and now it's finally complete. This ended up pretty far from where I expected it to go, but as I started writing I decided I wanted to indulge my love of Dead Can Dance and make something with both gothic and world music influences. I highly recommend listening on headphones for all the spooky vocal effects to come through.

lyrics

So this is my ascent
A coronation only I'll attend
The night of which I dreamed
With no one to admire it but me
In the darkness I've embraced
I still see your twisted face
"To the moon" - my sister's irony

If this is how it ends
The nightmare inside me my only friend
How different will it be
From reigning over quietude and sleep
Safe in dreams so bright and clear
My subjects can ignore their fears
But also all of my night's majesty

My story does not end in this fall
(My story never ends)
Despite this exodus, I'll return to rule you all
(I will rule you all)
So spend this night in sweet pursuit
And hope the queen of nightmares smiles upon your tribute
(Hope that I smile upon you)

So dream of me tonight
Show me your devotion in your fright
Know a world forever without sun
Drowning in this terror I've become
My sister hides a tyrant's lies
In brightest day and sunlit skies
But in the world I rule, there is no light
