about

Rupus Fugue dared to ask “Why?” Now he is doomed to move back and forth in time and witness the end of the world. (Campaign: Sekorah Above the Mists)

lyrics

A Balleto for Rupus
© 2011 by Mary Crowell
Rupus Fugue is misty mad, Fa la la la la la la la!
Fed by pity, ragged clad. Fa la la la la la la la!
The vapors sing their songs to him, Fa la la la la la la la!
The song discordant, always grim. Fa la la la la la la la!

Mists of pink will raise the dead; Fa la la la la la la la!
All that hungers must be fed. Fa la la la la la la la!
Monks and crows shall hear the call. Fa la la la la la la la!
Red will swirl to change them all; Fa la la la la la la la!

CHORUS
Songs of memory and time,
Poly-rhythms, slanting rhyme,
Deep within the swirling pale,
They ride upon the fiercest gale.

Rupus Fugue can hear them croon, Fa la la la la la la la!
Dances to its timely tune. Fa la la la la la la la!
Songs are sung of presents past. Fa la la la la la la la!
Futures now will never last. Fa la la la la la la la!

Summon birds with mists of green; Fa la la la la la la la!
Raven font will wash them clean. Fa la la la la la la la!
Souls will fly on midnight wings Fa la la la la la la la!
But soon forget what Rupus sings. Fa la la la la la la la!

CHORUS

[Instrumental]

Rupus Fugue is misty mad, Fa la la la la la la la!
Fed by pity, ragged clad. Fa la la la la la la la!
The vapors sing their songs to him, Fa la la la la la la la!
The song discordant, always grim. Fa la la la la la la la!
Rupus Fugue is misty mad, Fa la la la la la la la!
