Song of the Day, 6 December 2020
Song of the Day, 6 December 2020
#1


Rumors heard
From a little black bird
The edges of a prophecy
The pieces I have learned
Said the daughter of the reaper
Has been searching for the keeper
And I fear she'll let me burn
Locked tight up
In the tower on top
Of the domain of humanity
The godhood that I've earned
When you're holding on to majesty
You'd fear the hunt, a travesty
That balance may return

When you're sinful to the bone
Unholy
And you've claimed yourself a throne
Like me
Wield power of your own
Making
Godhunter's gonna hunt you down
If you're something more than flesh
Ascended
And you've taken on the rest
To end it
Then she'll find you in a dream
Tormented
Godhunter's gonna hunt you down

Fear confined
To the depths of my mind
For what could be such a threat to me
The conqueror of time
Yet the whispers of a reckoning
Have kept the spirits beckoning
To look upon my crime
Blood and war
When the world is no more
She's been watching for a century
With hatred, and with scorn
If you know the hunter's coming
Then you hide or keep on running
'Cause she's slain the gods before

When you're sinful to the bone
Unholy
And you've claimed yourself a throne
Like me
Wield power of your own
Making
Godhunter's gonna hunt you down
If you're something more than flesh
Ascended
And you've taken on the rest
To end it
Then she'll find you in a dream
Tormented
Godhunter's gonna hunt you down

Don't let her see your power in the daylight
Don't let her see it when you bring the storm
To the master of the eldritch she's a growing bed of thorns
Dark cults, leaders of the night,
Tell the tales of a fright
From a ghost of the future days
A holy crusade
On the gods decayed
To end our violent ways
Lost kings, fallen in the mist
Made their names on a list
And the hunt was carried through
A price for the past
When your name is last
And the hunter comes for you

Of all the free
She has none left but me
And my loyal knights have passed with time
A god and a throne, locked up all alone
In the kingdom I called mine
Dreams of a being
From the watcher unseen
Now he warned me she'll come to take his due
"The hate in your head, she has more" he said
"The godhunter waits for you"

When you're sinful to the bone
Unholy
And you've claimed yourself a throne
Like me
Wield power of your own
Making
Godhunter's gonna hunt you down
If you're something more than flesh
Ascended
And you've taken on the rest
To end it
Then she'll find you in a dream
Tormented
Godhunter's gonna hunt you down

That has some really strong parellels. Does this buff the Buffy?

At this time I don't have any plans to use it as a power song; for the moment consider it a theme song or background music, or possibly something Doug quotes to taunt Glory.

Bob, you might also look for "Godwhacker" by Steely Dan. Similar subject matter.

I've suggested that one before, with a power effect of "things unkillable through fate hax/supernatural resistance/not having a concept of death/etc. can now die from physical damage, as long as you can inflict enough physical damage." Like the song says, "you know, this might get messy... Godwhacker's on the case."

"Godwhacker" is the song of the day for 4 August 2017.
