Track Name: Rainbow Dash Picked Me!
'My life spent going nowhere
'Just lived to be ignored
Didn't know how I'd make it
'til she came through that door.
My world so cold and empty
Life moving at no pace
'Seemed just like second nature
to run in Rainbow's race.
I faced fierce competition
from creatures large and small.
I know there was no way I'd ever beat them all
I waited for my window:
my chance to show them all
So I went and I found Rainbow
and answered to her call.

[Chorus]
When we're together it's like my soul is set free!
You bestow me with that lift I always need!
All the other pets will bow to my decree.
When I announce that Rainbow Dash picked me!

So much time to decide it
as I just crawl along.
Is this to be my future?
Is this what keeps me strong?
The light is closing in now,
and I can see her form.
'Just trapped here in the bottom
She's so hard to ignore.
She sees me coming closer.
That look sits in her eyes.
You know just what I mean now:
that look of stunned surprise.
I'm lifting up her burden,
as she finds her new strength.
I promise not to hurt her
if I become her tank!

[Chorus]

[Break]

[Chorus]

[Outro]
Track Name: Let Your Mane Down
Verse 1:

All alone, parents gone, and there's nothing to do
Trying hard just to start making breakfast for you
She's working hard just to try to change your mind
Hoping now is the time you'll realize
That it's you, Rarity, she'll idolize

You know she'll do just about anything for you now
'find a way to have a say in what you both do now
So find a way to make her day, you know you have the power

Chorus:

Let your pride go, girl, as you take the floor
It's raining; let your mane hang down now
You know now Sweetie Belle matters more
So lady, let your mane hang down now
It shouldn't matter what you wanted before
Just go on curing your sister's frown
Just let your mane down; open the door
You know Sweetie Belle matters more

Verse 2:

Let it go as you show the world what you do
We all know that this foal means the world to you
You're working hard just to try to change her mind
Hoping now is the time she'll realize
Just how much you need her in your life

So mark your pace and run the race under your disguise
You'll win her faith and make her day when you're recognized
... and realize that two sisters are like apple pies.

[Chorus]

[Break]

[Chorus]
Track Name: The Final Battle
Here we stand on our own.
Here we stand not alone.
The end draws near, but father time may never ever hear our prayers.
The end draws near.

Here we are all alone.
Here we fight for our home.
Though it's not clear how we found the strength to persevere,
it is clear the end is near.

While our village lay in flames,
all who follow will honor us today.
.. and as our bodies turn to dust
everypony will forever remember us.
Track Name: Vicious Lies
You've got no alibi
'cause everything you say is a lie.
You're gunning for half-past twelve
it's deeper into your mind we delve.
The older sister of one makes two,
but you say she's coming after you.
A little lie lets the story unfold
That little lie that keeps the story told.

A tall tale of ambition and power,
Luna's ruse is the one of the hour.
Your sister's mind has been bought and sold.
Now everypony thinks you're made of gold.
.. but what they don't know surely can't do harm.
It's better sounding Nightmare Moon's alarm.
A little lie sends her to the moon.
A little lie that gets discovered soon.

A little story, and you've got all the power.
'gone a thousand years with the tale of the hour!

You're telling vicious lies.
Your power knows no compromise.
You're telling vicious lies,
to be the savior in their eyes!

Nightmare Night descends upon the world.
Your web of lies and deceit unfurl.
With everypony looking to the sky,
never knowing that it's all a lie.
You send the elements to beat her down,
nevermind you're nowhere to be found.
Another lie only seals their fate.
For all time it's Nightmare Moon they hate.

A little story and you've got all the power.
Gone a thousand years with the tale of the hour!

You're telling vicious lies.
Your power knows no compromise.
You're telling vicious lies,
to be the savior in their eyes!
You're telling vicious lies.
Your power knows no compromise.
You're telling vicious lies,
to be the savior in their eyes!
Track Name: The Apology
Baby I can't figure it out.
You know what you want,
and yet you still flaunt that attitude.

Nopony's impressed now.
It's just a mess now.
They've abandoned you

Maybe I won't figure it out
but baby don't let all your doubts,
take a hold of you.

Just make things right now
I think you know how,
and what you have to do

It's time to say you're sorry.
[Admit where things went wrong]
It's not about the glory.
[Although you still are strong]
It's time time to say you're sorry.
[Your shame won't be for long]
It's time to change the story.
[You know where you belong]

It's time to say you're sorry.
[Admit where things went wrong]
It's not about the glory.
[Although you still are strong]
It's time time to say you're sorry.
[Your shame won't be for long]
It's time to change the story.
[You know where you belong]

Baby I won't turn you down.
You know what I want, and
know that you're wrong and what to do.

Ponyville's distress, now:
it's in the past now,
so it's up to you.

Don't let this keep you down, cuz,
you know they'll be around to,
hear the truth from you.

It's time to look up, and
admit you messed up, and
begin your life anew.

It's time to say you're sorry.
[Admit where things went wrong]
It's not about the glory.
[Although you still are strong]
It's time time to say you're sorry.
[Your shame won't be for long]
It's time to change the story.
[You know where you belong]

It's time to say you're sorry.
[Admit where things went wrong]
It's not about the glory.
[Although you still are strong]
It's time time to say you're sorry.
[Your shame won't be for long]
It's time to change the story.
[You know where you belong]
Track Name: Taking Flight
I've had this feeling ever since you left your home.
It started with acts of love that quickly grew beyond control.
Life goes on teaching all you'll ever need to know.
When you open up your heart you will find your strength to grow.
I've got this feeling you'll do just fine on your own.
The princess of their hearts, reaching out beyond the throne.

Spread your wings and learn to fly.
As you glide your heart can touch the sky.
Spread your wings and learn to fly.
Be our guide and hold our dreams up high.

You'll keep on reaching for some kind of point of view.
No matter how hard you try, you'll never know just what to do, but,
your love goes on reaching all who choose to stand with you.
The declaration of your love is more than enough to get through.
Now, your heart goes on teaching all the things I taught to you.
It's time I left this place behind and left their care with someone new.

Spread your wings and learn to fly.
As you glide your heart can touch the sky.
Spread your wings and learn to fly.
Be our guide and hold our dreams up high.
Track Name: The Fantasy
It's sad we're worlds apart.
There'll have to be a way for us to start.
You're in an alternate reality.

I know that you're not real, except for what I feel.
I want you buried in my heart.
The way you look at me, with such ferocity, it's makin' me just fall apart.
Tell me, is this wrong?

There's nothing for me here, but solitude and fear.
Your bright colors make it clear.
If I were to leave what more could I be than just some passing stranger?

This is my life
This is my dream
This is my fantasy
Wanting for more
Wanting your form
to be so near to me.
This is my life
This is my dream
This is my fantasy
Wishing for more
Wishing your form
to be so near to me.

This is my life
This is my dream
This is my fantasy...
Track Name: Loveless Lovechild
A thousand years ago I was born of love.
As the years wore on I found it's not enough.
A father I barely knew. A mother on her own.
It didn't take me long to know I was alone.

[Break]

Then I came of age, my heart made of glass.
I watched the ponies play as centuries drift past.
I'll be their queen one day, and their love will all be mine.
Still the only way to heal my heart is time.

Power.
Love.
Dreams.
Beauty.

I'm just a loveless lovechild.
Destiny calls me and I'll
silently take my exile.
Their love has made my heart vile. [x2]


Trapped in solitude my heart know no love
... and I as I watch the world turn, there's emptiness thereof
For an eternity I'll wait in the end.
On Equestria I'll have my revenge!


"What a lovely but absolutely ridiculous sentiment!"


I'm just a loveless lovechild.
Destiny called me and I'll
silently take my exile.
Their love has made my heart vile. [x2]
Track Name: Mistress Zecora
When you've got a disease, magic won't solve it
she's got the herbs that you need.
(She's got the herbs that you need)
Just call the girl with the Z, you know she'll halt it
for a nominal fee.
(For a nominal fee)

You think she'll do this for free?
Well just between you and me,
I've been behind the scenes
where seldom ponies have been.
Lonely traveler beware,
for what you will find in there:
a paradise for this mare,
in her chamber of terrors.

[Chorus]
She's Mistress Zecora!
She's coming to claim us all!
Beware Mistress Zecora!
Just a lonely, saddened soul!

Now you're lost in her eyes.
Don't you deny it.
It's time that she claims her prize
(it's time that she claims her prize)
'Cant back out or escape, so don't you try it
There's a debt to be paid
(there's a debt to be paid)

So take a drink of her brew.
She'll put a spell over you.
Your freedom's nothing to you.
What's a pony to do?
So now you're spending the night,
and soon it's gonna feel right,
as she takes all of your fight,
and turns off all of the lights!

[Chorus`]
She's Mistress Zecora!
She's coming to claim us all!
Beware Mistress Zecora!
Just a lonely, shattered soul!

[Chorus``]
She's Mistress Zecora!
She's coming to claim us all!
Beware Mistress Zecora!
'Just a lonely, scattered soul...
Track Name: Images of Home
I thought I left it all behind.
Trapped in thought and state of mind.
... but as I stand here all alone
... plagued by images of home...

Looking back I stood my ground
making promises lost but never found
... and as I call you to my side
to help me set aside my pride.


It isn't easy,
to ask you to free me,
it's hard to stay this strong.
It isn't easy,
knowing you need me,
to stay where I don't belong.


Shattered glass now makes the frame.
It's not enough to hear you call my name.
To stay or remain? It hurts just the same.
My heart is still my own.

A different world on either side:
To swallow love or swallow pride?
One heart in pain, the other in vain.
Where will I ever thrive?


It isn't easy,
to ask you to free me,
it's hard to stay this strong.
It isn't easy,
knowing you need me,
to stay where I don't belong.
