The Space Shanty Contest [Winners Announced]!

Recommended Posts

Tenno Unite
Railjack rides. 
Grineer dies. 
Enemies fall before our stride. 
Raise your clans flag into the sky.
Prepare, prepare for the heavens so bright.

Bring out the Turrets.
None shall stop us. 
No delay will befall us, our mission important. 
Tenno unstoppable, the remnants of man. 
Heavens burn when we show our hand.

When they come before us. 
Our cannons ignite. 
Purge the Infested from our skies. 
Heed our words upon this night. 
The heavens are ours, best flee in fright.

Rise rise, Tenno rise. 
Though few we are, our enemies hide. 
Run little Corpus, no match, no contest. 
You were never player, in this game you should forfeit. 
Never forget our Warframes might. 
The Heavens are ours, Tenno unite!

Silver as the night the Revil takes flight 

to take back the light of star sailors delight! 

Through’r darkened seas of dust and ice, 

Ash he guides our ship to fight!

His speed is true and aim precise! 

 

By Lua we sail, where foes were born,  

Ancient beings by whom we scorn! 

Omnis on deck! Scuttle the floor! 

Slashing Grineer! Those pesky thorns! 

 

Avast ye! A Wukong he plots!  

With mischievous thoughts, a new captain he sought! 

A Hydroid he thought more fit to fly, 

But by Ash’s side the Hydroid would die. 

 

Strangers ride among ye in these dark seas, 

But loyalty be a strong thing indeed! 

Fiends such as he and ancients long be, 

Swarm like flies from deep beyond thee.   

 

Ballas ye swine, do you hear the bells toll? 

Umbra sides with us, your head will soon roll. 

 

Red as the fire our passion steadfast. 

We strike at the hearts of the Sentients at last! 

 

 

Note: Our ship is named the Revil. Didn’t want anyone to be confused by that line. Had a lot of fun with this!

Set your Archwings ready! For we going on a raid!

Sharpen your blades! Load your guns! 

Set the rockets alight! And then let them taste our might! 

The grineer won't do anything! For we hear them all weeping!

For we thrive! (WE THRIVE) We thrive our might! 

We contain the power of a thousand suns! Let them see our brilliance!

We're richer than the corpus! Stronger than grineer! The only thing they show us is cowering fear! 

For we thrive! (WE THRIVE) We thrive our might! 

Run away! Run away! For we coming for you! 

Run away! Run away! For there's nothing you can do!

We are the space pirates, the famous raiders! 

We send them our power! Send them our might. (BLINDING MIGHT) 

For we thrive! (WE THRIVE) We thrive our might! 

 

We stand and fight until the end! For we never give up! 

There's nothing you can do, for we're coming for you!

We blind you with our power! All you do cower! 

For we thrive, we thrive, we thrive our (MIGHT)

Brothers and sisters we've got fools to fight,
Come bring out your weapons, let's board and take flight.

Come grineer, come corpus, come sentients, come all!
Don't think we are outmatched just because you are more.

Be saryn, be ember, be rhino or frost,
No matter the frame, you are already toasted.

Just cease your struggling and give us your loot,
Avionics or weapons not your stinky boot.

A handful of crewships and a hundred fighters?
This is not a fight, it'll be just a slaughter.

Here comes a crewship, it's just a non-factor,
Just slingshot away and take down the reactor.

We are being boarded by a bunch of weaklings,
A twist of the wrist and they are now kindling.

And another crewship, you know your job lads,
It’s still the same ship have ya’ll just gone mad?!

Just board it or shoot it, do something, destroy it!
Or sit back its fine, I'll go out and blow it.

I am just the pilot and it'll take a few seconds,
My crew is strong, they'll be fine, I reckon.

Don’t come outside now, the crew ship is gone,
OUR SHIP NEEDS REPAIRS OR WE ARE ALL GONNA EXPLOD-.

Here's my entry!

(Sung as if by vikings/ Wind Rose/ Sabaton)

The Eternal Grind

 

The Void is cold,

The war never ends,

Make sure you don’t get the bends!

Ya ha ha ha ha.

 

Shipshape, our bolts are tight,

Off we go to the great frontier!

Corpus! Infected! Grineer!

Off to the eternal grind.

 

Following the stars,

Get to your gunner’s seat!

We shoot them down,

Cephalons are our guide.

 

Shipshape, our bolts are tight,

Off we go to the great frontier!

Corpus! Infected! Grineer!

Off to the eternal grind.

 

Our Railjack is our friend,

The adventure will never end,

Friends beside us,

So long as we are true!

 

Shipshape, our bolts are tight,

Off we go to the great frontier!

Corpus! Infected! Grineer!

Off to the eternal grind.

 

Bullets fly and our foes die,

Warframes side by side,

What a ride,

Our helmsman cannot fly!

 

Shipshape, our bolts are tight,

Off we go to the great frontier!

Corpus! Infected! Grineer!

Off to the eternal grind.

 

Soldiers are we,

Living for free

Platinum costs too much!

Yo ho ho ho!

 

Sail on forever!

Heya guys! I was really inspired to take part in this contest because I absolutely love sea shanties! I wrote this shanty about all the Tenno who will need to come together to pilot the new Railjacks and what kinds of skills they'll need to be a successful crew. I really hope you guys like it!

 

Calling all Tenno

By. Mcawsome14

 

 

Oh, come all ye sailors!

From planets around,

There’s Grineer who’ll chase us,

And glory abound!


Oh, come all ye Tenno!

With a Railjack ye found,

There’s Grineer who’ll fight us,

And treasure to be found!


Oh, come all ye might!

A crew we’ll make,

Ragged we might be,

But treasures at stake!


Oh, come all ye clansman!

Your help we’ll need,

To fix up this Railjack,

And take her to sea!


Oh, bring all ye Warframes!

Their strength we’ll need,

To fight the Grineer,

They’ll make em’ all bleed!


Oh, come ye adventurers!

We’ll sail the sea,

We’ll sail the Proxima,

And wonders you’ll see!

 

Oh, come all ye warriors!

Come fight with me,

We’ll sail into battle,

And prey on the weak!


Oh, come the wisest!

With knowledge abound,

When trouble arises,

You won’t fool around!


Oh, come if ye dare!

Many fights they’ll be,

No one knows where,

Our voyages might lead!

Space is for the Tenno

We all, we are the hunters!
All of us are ready to fight!

Sentients are coming!(There's no escape!)
So only you can do is to accept your fate!
Loading our guns and sharpening blade
Do not let us to be eliminated!

We all, we are the hunters!
Launching our engines to the flight!

We've got Railjack!(It costs six millions!)
But this is good price for saving billions!
Riding the spaceship up piercing the skies
Now spread your archwing and fly!

We all, we are the hunters!
Every man and every kind must know!

Grineer made mistake.(They awoke Hunhow!)
How can we win this war? Just how?!
Don't worry, Sol System. Everything will be fine!
Tenno will bring victory to mankind!

We all, we are the hunters!
And even with broken memo!

We all, we are the hunters!
This space is only for the Tenno!!!

Captain Piper’s Flying Tavern

A Space Shanty by Somnetor Umbra

 

I know of this place, that isn’t too far.

Where rest is had and great railers share wisdom

And they serve the best skrum in the system

In an inn that travels between the stars,

It’s Captain Piper’s Flying Tavern.

 

It’s a place unruled by the empires

Free from the grip of infested

Where the railers are always well rested.

Home of the greatest rogues to admire,

In Captain Piper’s Flying Tavern.

 

They say when Piper was but a wee lass

She found a fomorian, ancient in years.

She fixed the ship up, with her privateers

Never again to be seen, til’ we sleep our last,

In Captain Piper’s Flying Tavern.

 

Yet the bar ain’t the only attraction.

There’ll be assassins and generals and robots and you,

Even the Tenno aren’t above downing a pint or two.

You’ll be welcome no matter your faction,

In Captain Piper’s Flying Tavern.

 

‘Cause Piper don’t care who walks into her inn,

So long as you pay and play nice on her ship.

So lay down your arms and unwind away,

So that you may forget your sorrows ‘til tomorrow

In Captain Piper’s Flying Tavern.

 

So when my soul finally leaves its host

I’m sure that I’ll miss this life all the same

But do not be sad for me, whatever my fate

For I’d be spendin’ my eternity as a ghost

In Captain Piper’s Flying Tavern.


 

 

Author’s Notes

Railer - a pun of the word ‘Sailor.’  Used in its stead as while no one sails in the game, navigation is done by rails (Rail Jacks, Solar Rails).  

Skrum - a drink based off of rum.

Piper - a common name by today’s standards, I figured it would be considered exotic by the time Warframe takes place.

 

This forecastle shanty was based off the real life concept of “Fiddler’s Green.”  It’s the sailor version of heaven, but far simpler and with less holiness. I figured with multiple wars going on at the same time in the game, the railers would’ve comforted themselves with thoughts of a better life afterwards as they constantly risk dying like the sailors of old.  So I imagined that Captain Piper’s Flying Tavern was their version of Fiddler’s Green.

You wake up in the morning to the sound of Ordis' bell
You get into your warframe and go out to battle hell
But there is just so much fighting 
That us Tenno can do on foot
So tired of getting back to the orbiter
Covered in dirt and soot

They took away my Space Mom 
I wonder if I'm free
Well there is just one answer -
You can't take the sky from me 

And so to the skies we go
Rising hell on the go
The motley crew of strangers and friends
Hoping we'll live till the mission ends

They attack us from the front
They attack us from the rear
We blow up their cannons and sabotage ships
And then celebrate and cheer

Ooops, now we're being boarded
Well that is just no fun
The enginner has fallen asleep
I guess that means we're done

Still, even with the ship on fire
The captain has only one decree
As we try to steer our way back, he shouts
"You can't take the sky from me".

 

(It ended up being a kind of a Warframe/Firefly omage ^_^)

Past the stars A place where no one will why

Far away in the depth of the empty void

Where hope for many is destroyed

We search for riches in the sky.

 

an empire long ago who fell because of a lie

With arrogance as their foundation

silenced by their own creation

We search for riches in the sky.

 

Conquers and the gold obsessed cult shall die

The universe is full of their pain

But we shall clean up this stain

We search for riches in the sky.

 

A disease with a fearsome cry

Mutated ugly like no other

Keeps calling me his brother

We shall search for riches in the sky.

 

To fight an enemy on our powers we rely

They adapt and secrete

Our weaponsare meant to meet

We search for riches in the sky.

 

 

Darkness and pain because we were misled by a lie

Left Alone with no guide

Wondering if we were the right side

We search for riches in the sky.

These Parts are not our own, but with them we create

a ship that shall be flown, across the vacuum of space

 

Chephalon CY's the one in charge

He sends us off to near and far

We'll find the parts they left behind

that Orokin tech all lost to time

 

These Parts are not our own, but with them we create

a ship that shall be flown, across the vacuum of space

 

These parts are old and worn right through

but when were done they're good as new

We sing this song and work in time

to return this ship back to it prime

 

These Parts are not our own, but with them we Create

a ship that shall be flown, across the vacuum of space

 

The ship is huge it's 12 'frames tall

Now that its done its at our call

to defend our home We shall fly straight 

this Orokin relic we did create

 

These Parts are not our own, but with them we create

a ship that shall be flown, across the vacuum of space

I've heard of a moon in Saturn's rings,
Where the fight is won and justice sings,
I've heard it's out there and I've gone away,
I ride the railjack night and day
And I know I'll reach that moon someday.

I've heard of a path up to that moon,
So I ride the trade lanes, to find it soon,
It's covered with riches that lead the way
I've left room in my cargo bay,
'cause I know I'll find that path someday.

I've heard of a man who knows that path,
He's sailed the void, with all its wrath,
He fights for justice and he clears the way,
He'll board my railjack right away,
Whenever I find that man, someday.

I've searched many years for that mythic land
And I've traveled the stars with many a band
But I haven't seen man, moon, or way
to point me to them, so I stray
among the stars, I'll stop someday.

It's for a place like this that we fight,
Our engines run both day and night
The infestation cannot stay,
Grineer and Corpus run away!
We're going to stop them all someday.

Come seek the moon in Saturn's rings
Where the fight is won and justice sings
No enemy will ever take away
Our railjack crew, the strong and brave
Will find that void-blessed land someday.

----------

Inspired by the many old sailor-songs that focus on dreams and goals of the sailors. I just figured the Tenno cause is a little more noble than the mere pursuit of treasure and attractive women.

"We Tenno have been in the Orokin for generations"

*For the orokin we go

For the orokin we fight 

We raise our primes Just to let them taste out bite

Our kubrows are strong Our Cephalons are smart

We raise the cannons and shoot you with pride

Hooooo eyuh eyuh eyuh hooooooo!!!!

Earth is where we shall go now

The Grineer are there to greet us

I'll pilot the 'jack you head to the back

with your archwings attack they'll fear us

 

As we fly through the unknown

and venture far from home

Cy is our guide

our friends by our side

We'll protect the system alone

 

They're on the run as we fire our guns

the blasts bright as the sun they're cornered

Saturn is next we shall do our best

The Grineer soon oppressed Move forward

 

The Veil is last this place is so vast

Our gaze is soon cast towards it

The tower it stands decrepit but grand

On its doorstep we land, explore it!

 

As we fly through the unknown

and venture far from home

Cy is our guide

our friends by our side

We'll protect the system alone

 

The inside is broken Built by the Orokin

Once new and unburdened now derilect

We run through it's halls and jump up it's walls

but something it calls; our home

 

As we fly through the unknown

and venture far from home

Cy is our guide

our friends by our side

We'll protect the system alone

Jaws of Oblivion

[Verse 1]

We ride upon the solar rails,
to war we go, in to the breach. 
We ride with our spirits high, 
the Shawzin's call dost fortify. 
Quellor stowed, and Pennant sheathed,
at battle stations, patiently
await the time when we arrive. 
Begin the fight for all our lives.

[Chorus]

Ready crew, we heed the call
to bravely go ev' if we fall
to the jaws of oblivion,
where our spirit shall live on.
Through unity, our forces strong
tenacity will take us far
to the jaws of oblivion,
where our spirit shall live on.

[Verse 2]

From the void the heralds came,
on horizon brewed a vengeful storm.
Clanging of the watcher's bell
sent out the call, to us to tell
our brothers and our sisters to
take up arms, to form the crew.
Engines fire in cacophony.
What dread awaits for us to see.

[Repeat Chorus]

[Refrain][Note: Sung roughly half the speed.]

Forge's fires rage constantly,
to build the arms in dire need 
Booming of the battered hull
Shields depleted, protection null.
Looming over, last we see,
twisted maw of Sentient breed.
Though we perish, not all is lost.

For our spirits, shall live on!

[Repeat Chorus][Note: Final chorus starts by overlapping with "on!"]

Where our spirits shall live on.

 

Extra notes in spoiler!

Spoiler

BPM = 120  Word Count = 190 (with chorus notated.)

'Jaws of Oblivion' is inspired by the idea of railjack crews in the early days of the Old War when the outlook of survival was grim. Faced with an enemy alien to them who adapts to their weaponry and tactics, and for every one you kill many more have already been built and deployed. In this live or die situation, crews learned to accept their fate going into battle in the hopes that it would buy enough time for others to find a way to defeat them.

A backing track and sing-along video available to set the speed and tone here!

Vamos Marujos subam na minha embarcação!
Que tal uma bela canção?

Quando acordar  siga as estrelas que é lá o nosso lar.
Nessa tripulação o capitão Hydroid nos ajudara.

No vácuo não a que temer, basta que juntos e por Lotus vamos vencer.

Essa tripulação, cheia de aptidão, com Warframes vencem oque vier.
Podem os Grineers nos atacar, os corpos roubar
E ainda estamos em pé
Nos Tenos vamos contra atacar não importa oque vier!

'eres one where you can switch and swap lyrics if you want. Two verses, then a bridge.
tbh, I don't even think 'bridge' is the right term, but...eh. Here's to all you poor sods who have had One Of Those MissionsTM

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Fighters on the left but the gunner’s on the right,
Galleon ahead but a downed archwing’s in flight
Where is the engie, starboard hull’s in a plight!
Yet another scuff-ed flight!

Missile platform ahead and the away team is dead
Ramsleds in flight and the captain has fled
Crewship punched in and a bomb’s been planted
Yet another scuff-ed flight!

We gave it our best
Took the test
“Kill 'em all, Void sort out the rest!”
But it wasn’t alright
The mission took the night
It was yet another scuff-ed flight!
 

Finished the anomaly but the host said ‘Goodbye’
Captain needs more flux but the forge bank is dry
Honestly this whole mission just wants to make us cry
Yet another scuff-ed flight!

Fired off a missile only for another ship to break the lock
The void hole we fired managed to even miss the dock
We finally broke the enemy but our reward wasn’t even worth a rock
Yet another scuff-ed flight!

We gave it our best
Took the test
“Kill 'em all, Void sort out the rest!”
But it wasn’t alright
The mission took the night
It was yet another scuff-ed flight!

Swazdo-Lah!

Fight On Tenno!

The Railjack, a vessel of war,
Carry you through the stars,
From Konzu under missing moon,
gather at Maroos Bazaar!
The Lotus gives our orders,
Her favor to attain!
To rise, fight, and win our war,
Lift together once again!

For its fight on, Warframe
The Tenno’s second skin
With your chosen way, the gun and blade,
We fight the war within!

Among the ghouls of Cetus town,
Our warriors fight did dance,
With transference deep within their hearts,
The Tenno did advance.
Among Corpus techs and Grineer Clones,
The Infested plague did grow!
There came a storm, a warriors way,
Cleanse them away, Tenno!

For its fight on, Warframe
The Tenno’s second skin
With your chosen way, the gun and blade,
We fight the war within!


Both light and dark, you’ll find your fight!
Build up your clan!
Take down the Wolf of Saturn Six,
Stand beside our Lotus’ plan!
So ride the rails, among the stars,
You’ve beat the Devils claw!
Arrive again to that orbiter,
And cheer out, Swazdo-Lah!

For its fight on, Warframe
The Tenno’s second skin!
With your chosen way, gun and blade,
We fight the war within!

For its fight on, Warframe
The Tenno’s second skin!
With your chosen way, gun and blade,
We fight the war within!

SARK, the MateMonk
