Another Day, Another Mix Closer To Perfection

Well, I've been messing with the mix on the (first of many, I hope) songs, and I've just about got it tweaked to perfection. This song began as me noodling about in Finale, and now it’s grown into my own piece of 10 minute-long, mini Wagnerian rock opera, in the fine tradition of Jim Steinman, Tobias Sammat, TSO, and many other fine rock ‘n roll composers of eras before mine. It doesn’t have any vocals yet — those are coming., as soon as i can find a vocalist up to snuff and crazy enough to attempt the melody. It does have lyrics, though (they’re posted next to this column). That “operating voice” you hear singing along on the track is singing the lead vocal melody; see if you can sing along, using the lyrics below!

Fight On Forever (Where Dreams Never Die)

Lyrics © 2019 by

 William A. Hainline


A suicidal dreamer, with a renegade inventive mind

Met a superheroine femme fatale; who expanded his paradigm;

She rescued him from heartache, he never really stood a chance

(And) he fell in love with her wicked ways and joined her in a dance


He was all alone 

And she had the magic

And together 

Unstoppable

Yes, unstoppable


(Well) they flew away on star streams, in a flying saucer built for two

And they went on an adventure unlike anything you’ve ever seen

They fought an evil wizard, and a dragon and a demon too

And they came back changed from everything that they had ever been


When people seem strange

When you’re a stranger

And the angels they have all fallen 

Always remember

Heroes remain

Yes, heroes remain


Never in life have we ever ft in

Always outside in the fire have we been

(But) for wonderland, for neverland, we fight with all our might

We fight on forever where dreams never die;

We fight on forever where dreams never die;

We fight on forever where dreams never—


We’re fighting a battle against the Mundane

We don’t give a damn if you think we’re insane

We’re flyin’ high and kickin’, we won’t give up the fight

We’ll fight on forever where dreams never die;

We’ll fight on forever where dreams never die;

We’ll fight on forever where dreams never die!


Avenging avengers, and vanquishing Vampires

And fighting gods gone insane

Destroying demons, assassinating sorcerers

And shadows that shall not be named


Raging into the night 

This evil demands a fight

We came, we saw, we kicked it’s ass,

We’re warriors of the light

 

When the darkness falls all around you

And all the lonely tears you’ve cried

Go winding throughout time

And all your precious gods are dead

And all your hope is gone,

A hero will take up the sword,

Until the battle’s won, 


Yes a hero will take up the sword,

Until the battle’s won!


The deepest darkest villains, with their super genius evil minds

Cannot vanquish true romance, it’s beyond all space and time

It can heal the gravest mortal wounds and salve all injury

It can spark a change in wicked hearts with electrical intensity


When people seem strange

When you’re a stranger

And the angels have all abandoned you 

Always remember

Heroes remain

Yes, heroes remain


Never in life have we ever ft in

Forever outside in the fire have we been

(But) for wonderland, for neverland, we fight with all our might

We fight on forever where dreams never die;

We fight on forever where dreams never die;

We fight on forever where dreams never—


We’re fighting a battle against the Mundane

We don’t give a damn if you think we’re insane

We’re flyin’ high and kickin’ ass, we won’t give up the fight

We’ll fight on forever where dreams never die;

We’ll fight on forever where dreams never die;

We’ll fight on forever where dreams never—


Never in life have we ever ft in

Forever outside in the fire have we been

For wonderland, for neverland, we fight with all our might

We fight on forever where dreams never die;

We fight on forever where dreams never die;

We fight on forever where dreams never—
