The void is vast & the void is black!

Climb onboard on a Tenno’s Railjack. 

 

Bring your Plague or bring your Braak.

Bring your dog or Smeeta Kavat.

All onboard on a Tenno’s Railjack. 

 

Find that crew let thrusters burn.

Patch that hull from bow to stern

Galleons belching smoke and flack.

Find that captain and show him what’s what.

 

Get that loot then head on back. 

Set another course on a Tenno’s Railjack.

(Repeat)

No wind to howl, no waves to throw -

Hey! Ho!

We ride!

Where?

The void only knows...

The sun is my horizon, with the void we don't row -

Hey! Ho!

We sail!

How?

The void only knows...

Tenno on the deck means a battles bout to blow -

Hey! Ho!

We fight!

Why?

The void only knows...

Litter the heavens with metal and woe -

Hey! Ho!

We crow.

'til the void claims our souls.

Ninja's trough space they be
Roaming like it were the seven seas
Fighting of hordes of infested scum
Killing grineer like it's nothing but fun

Ho Ho say Ninja's we be
fighting for salvation and dignity
Tearing trough space from pluto to mars
heading the call to get of of your arse

fighting for more then just killing scum
we're fighting for glory and platinum
Ho Ho those ninja's you see
they're of to the void to be free

Tenno, come join me at my side
so others may do the same
Step in to the light step in to your frame
Fighting for glory and living the game

Ho Ho say Ninja's we be
And together we'll always be free!

We fish we fight with all our tenno might

No doubt no blight peace is in our sight 

Sentients at our bow a galleon at the stern 

Plague star back down ghouls all around 

Cut them down for ostron all around

The void is strong will the lotus come along ?

For those of us who remember the old ways of the sea.

The monsters of the deep are those we used to fear.

 But now we must fear the monsters we have already have forgotten.

We must band together, for we are now going back to the stars.

The railjack is our home and from there we must protect.

This is my entry. I wrote these lyrics from the heart because i love my railjack more than anything.

More than a ship, more than a weapon

The Crew will always call her Home,

But when our foes hurt this vessel in chrome

The Tenno will teach ‘em a lesson!

 

Start her engines, let them purr

In the dark void, she’ll be but a blur!

Quick! Man the turrets and hold your aim

The roaring cannons are one with your frame!

 

(chorus)

Boom Crash! A fight so relentless,

Our heroes so helpless!

Boom Crash! Let’s all sing along,

The Railjack stayed strong!

 

And Just when we think it’s over

We notice the Ramsleads right ahead

Are those amateurs really trying a takeover?

Then the Railjack will be their deathbed!

 

(chorus)

Boom Crash! A fight so relentless,

Our heroes so helpless!

Boom Crash! Let’s all sing along,

The Railjack stayed strong!

 

And the captain drops tired

The crew feels inspired

This is no time to sigh!

A Ship-killer in the corner of my eye!
 

(chorus)

Boom Crash! A fight so relentless,

Our heroes so helpless!

Boom Crash! Let’s all sing along,

The Railjack stayed strong!

 

(chorus)

Boom Crash! A fight so relentless,

Our heroes so helpless!

Boom Crash! Let’s all sing along,

The Railjack stayed strong!

Gather your crew of tenno
Wether they near or far
We're going on an adventure
In our big space car

Driver flying true
Achwing in the rear
Repair the ship oh tenno
I think grineer are here

Keep the ship on course
Keep the ship on course
Keep the ship on course
Let's take our enemy by force.

The Easiest Job:

 

 

Seal The breach!

Or are you dreaming?

Seal the breach!

Or we all die screaming!

...

Fix the wire!

Or are you able?

Fix the wire!

No not that cable!

...

Snuff the flames!

Get off the commode!

Snuff the flames!

Before we explode!

Load the stores!

You can’t go wrong!

Load the stores!

What is taking so long?

Secure the ship!

You sure are Lazy?

Secure the ship!

You drive us crazy!

Man those guns!

Your all alone!

Man those guns!

The crew has flown!

Why’d we fail?

You suck at your job!

Why’d we fail?

Get off our squad!

...

Warning, this song spoils almost everything prior to Rising Tides:

 

Spoiler

Cast in nightmares born of void,

Clad in chains of white.

We shall not take any more,

We are prepared to fight.

 

So long we have been smothered in dreams,

Shunned by our golden kin.

Lone survivors of the Zariman plague,

That was our only sin.

 

Cast in nightmares born of void,

Clad in chains of white.

We shall not take any more,

We are prepared to fight.

 

Thousands of years we stayed sealed away,

Locked within our minds.

But we all have been set free,

With frames of war to strike.

 

Cast in nightmares born of void,

Clad in chains of white.

We shall not take any more,

We are prepared to fight.

 

Decay and greed are all around,

Claiming they own all.

hoarding scraps of a golden god,

which we did make fall.

 

Cast in nightmares born of void,

Clad in chains of white.

We shall not take any more,

We are prepared to fight.

 

The three-way war shall soon return,

Even with Ballas dead.

His creations can still scourge the sky,

A plague on every land.

 

Cast in nightmares born of void,

Clad in chains of white.

We shall not take any more,

We are prepared to fight.

 

So in the name of all those lost,

To every foe we’ve faced.

We soar across the vast fields of space,

And resist at any cost.

 

Cast in nightmares born of void,

Clad in chains of white.

We shall not take any more,

We are prepared to fight.

Note: (Ride the Rail) is meant to be sung by everyone in the room. The rest is one singer, up to four. 

"We don't know who wrote these words, only that more recently, tuning in to Nightwave late in Sol's cycle lets one hear it echoing in their head space. You're welcome. 
Sometimes it's girls singing it, others, young men, or both, but mostly, it sounds like a bunch of lost souls finding each other. Some old stuff that sticks, some new stuff that stays. The song caught us. As things go you know. We're all just survivors out here, together." - Nora

“Riders of the Rail.”

Hey kiddos.

(Ride the Rail)

Shed not a tear for the Final Frontier.
It's written in the runes.

The Sentients sigh their darkest tunes,
Old Blood and New Blood, New War and Old War.

The Final Frontier, pah! 
Ain’t no beginnings, my friends,
Nor are there any ends.

(Ride the Rail)

Now off the Moon, so soon, or not soon enough?
Tides are Rising, 
Lua's cradle was your boat, now cast afloat.

Don’t let yourself drown, 
Despite the weight of your crown.

(Ride the Rail)

Swim the void. Fly! Never say die!
My friends it’s not the end.
We all know it’s not. With danger fraught,
the journey is, in wake of the War Within.

(Ride the Rail)

To the other side, and out, without a doubt,
There’s the best we’ve ever been.

Riding the Rail!
It’s the best way to set sail, ‘cause
Solar wind is the song of our souls.

(Ride the Rail)

Toss a Cred to your Tenno,
O’ Star Chart of Plenty~
So our souls can breach Styx
We’ve got balance to fix.

(Ride the Rail)

Y’all know we ain’t comin back,
When we take ourselves out through the Black!

 

Wake up, Tenno.


Ride the Rail.

Hey Kiddo,
Railjack sails.
Through the cold Void,
and to the Veil.
Don`t just stand,
on those dry docks.
Come  on board,
to fight The New War.

Sing my brothers!
Sing my sisters!
Off to war we go!
Pray for mothers!
Pray for fathers!
That we left on shores!
Sing my brothers!
Sing my sisters!
When tides rise!
Hold your faith!
Hold your strength!
In combat they will shine!

Hey Tenno,
calm your mind!
Your warframe,
heeds your call!
With steady hand,
and eagle`s eye.
We`ll meet the swarm,
and defeat them all!

Sing my brothers!
Sing my sisters!
Off to war we go!
Pray for mothers!
Pray for fathers!
That we left on shores!
Sing my brothers!
Sing my sisters!
When tides rise!
Hold your faith!
Hold your strength!
In combat they will shine!

Hey Hero,
when Sun sets!
And war is,
long gone!
Return safely,
to your people.
And bring stories,
to tell at your home!

Sing my brothers!
Sing my sisters!
Off to war we go!
Pray for mothers!
Pray for fathers!
That we left on shores!
Sing my brothers!
Sing my sisters!
When tides rise!
Hold your faith!
Hold your strength!
In combat they will shine!

We travel as warriors to the stars 
It shapes us into what we are 👫
With valor shining from our hearts 💖
As light coming from dying stars 🌟
We make our journeys last so far 
We mark the galaxy as a scar ✍️

As Grineer Queen sends her maggots 🐍
We dreamers send them back to atoms ⚛️
We fly, we fight, we die, we rise 🙋‍♀️
we make our history in the skies ☁️

We built our ship from scattered parts

we traveled far and wide

Now here we stand on this Railjack as she takes to the sky!

 

We've lost our familes

Lost our Mother

our people are long gone

Yet when we stand upon this ship

Our families by our side

 

As we set out to darkest black

We face the endless void

But with crew and trusty Railjack

We'll show the Tennos might

 

Take to the sky

Take to the stars

Take us to the deepest void

With crew and trusty Railjack

There's nowhere we can't go

 

Let bullets fly

Let lasers flash

Light all the sky afire

We Tenno shall stand strong against you, as we reclaim the skies

Wait just a second. We're writing space shanties, yet Pirates and Ninjas are clearly mortal enemies...

Meh, whatever.

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

Ohhhhhhhhhhhh~

Get up, get up, set sail
The stars will guide our feet
Our Railjack will not fail
The Grineer will be mincemeat!

[Refrain]
Yo ho,
Off we go!
The Tenno will be there!
Yo ho,
Off we go!
Make all our foes beware!

Get up, get up, we rise
It's time to look ahead
We'll cut through all the lies
So that we won't wind up dead!

-- [Refrain] --

Get up, get up, and fight
Fortuna will rejoice
In darkness or in light
Let Nef Anyo hear their voice!

-- [Refrain] --

Get up, get up, and run
We're crashing through the void
Pull out every gun
And leave Baro unemployed!

-- [Refrain] --

Yo ho,
Off we go!
We launch into the fray!
Yo ho,
Off we go!
Our Warframes win today!

<Second dream music starts>

From the echoes of the veil a familiar call

bellows down over the railjack

in a suit of battle-word ears it falls

we get ready for an attack

of the angelic songs of a mothers' voice

distant murmurs are all that remain...

<Second dream music fades away and Octavia starts playing rock on her mandachord>

CONQUER OUR SORROWS AND EMBRACE OUR PAIN

MAKE IT A PART OF OUR POWER

FLYING THROUGH SPACE LET THEM FEEL NOTHING BUT BANE

UNDER OUR CANNONS THEY'ILL COWER

AND OUR SWORDS ARE THEIR DEMISE

SLAY TRUE WITH GREAT POWER

WITH HEAVY HANDS AND TEARFUL EYES

WE STRIKE WITH OUR BLADES AND THE LOTUS DIES

<Mandachord rock suddenly stops and Second dream fades in>

In the perilous void on the edges of space

I turn to my mother fallen from grace

as the light in her eyes fades with sorrow I say:

"May the Lotus show me the way"

We've entered the system
Crew's itching to fight
Fighters incoming
And ramsled in flight

Boarders incoming
Now send them running
The pilot's flying
Two gunners gunning
The stores are all full
Forge is ready to go
Grab Omni and Revolite
Drive out the foe

The ramsled door opens
Garuda's got them no doubt
She's always effective
But those stains don't wash out

Boarders incoming
Now send them running
The pilot's flying
Two gunners gunning
The stores are all full
Forge is ready to go
Grab Omni and Revolite
Drive out the foe

Another wave coming
Hydroid's drowned the goofs
Do we know for sure
Is this ship waterproof?

Boarders incoming
Now send them running
The pilot's flying
Two gunners gunning
The stores are all full
Forge is ready to go
Grab Omni and Revolite
Drive out the foe

New foes, but oh wait:
Seems Revenant's through
They're all still alive
And we've gained a new crew

Boarders incoming
Now send them running
The pilot's flying
Two gunners gunning
The stores are all full
Forge is ready to go
Grab Omni and Revolite
Drive out the foe

Grendel's rolled out
Gobbling them like it's sport
But he's far on one side
So we're drifting to port

Boarders incoming
Now send them running
The pilot's flying
Two gunners gunning
The stores are all full
Forge is ready to go
Grab Omni and Revolite
Drive out the foe

All ahead full everything counts on our speed!

Our enemies move against us,

Our enemies seek to defeat us,

Let us meet them head on!

 

Prepare for the void jump!

Let us travel to planets unseen,

Let us find stars that shine,

We take the fight to them!

 

The past no longer holds sway over us!

Stand tall in the face of defeat Tenno,

Stand tall in the face of adversary Tenno,

Let yourself shine so bright that you illuminate our universe!

 

All weapons going live and ready to fire!

Fear not what might happen,

Fear not the coming end,

If you give in to fear all is lost!

 

Fear is our enemy’s greatest weapon!

Don’t let fear worm it’s way into your mind,

Don’t let fear cloud your judgement,

Follow me and we shall make it through the infinite night!

 

We are heroes now and forever!

The Void gifted us these powers,

The Void gave us a second chance,

Shunned and feared we were but no more!

 

Don’t turn your back now we are nearly there!

What say you in this great journey,

What say ye on this magnificent voyage,

We are all friends and together we shall never fail!

From the Void came voices, right in me head!
--'Tis not something we can tolerate!
Gotta woosh!, swoosh! and obliterate,
We're sailing along, to beat'cha!

Guns and swords; we're more than ready,
We will board our Betty, and make it steady!
Then we ktang!, and bang!; Grineer are petty,
Floatin' enemies make Cy so happy!

Oh Vor, oh Vor; ya hasty little pitcha'!--
Tried to fit in; instead became an itcha'!
Yellin' VOID! and VOID!; then NO! and NO!
Might've lost your legs; yet you run like Queen's snitcha'!

We tried to be nice; but you all insisted
that we beat you up good; like someone else pissed it!
And we're rowing, and rowing till we reach the outer rim!--
Take a look at us,
All you'll ever see is grim!

 

*Chorus

*Drunk voice; less melodic

*Final chorus where everybody is audible.

(Something quick and fun! To be sung with a steady driving beat.)

Hey! Ho!
If you seek a profit
Hey! Ho!
With the Corpus you should ride

Hey! Ho!
If you seek a future
Hey! Ho!
The Grineer will provide

Hey! Ho!
But if you seek adventure
Hey! Ho!
Come away with me tonight!

Sailing on the rails
All hands to man the guns
In the Void and back again
So long as the engine runs!

Hey! Ho!
It's dangerous it's true
Hey! Ho!
The Infested never rest

Hey! Ho!
And out beyond our star
Hey! Ho!
Sentients call their best!

Hey! Ho!
But see the stars so bright and clear
Hey! Ho!
What else are we to do?

Sailing on the rails
All hands to man the guns
In the Void and back again
So long as the engine runs!
