Ocean of Dave

Original is “Castle of Glass” by Linkin Park. Davesprite song. (I think it’s the first I’ve ever done for him?)


Take me back like a month or five
Take me back to when they’re alive
Stop the puppet from going in
Can this ever be home again?

Merge me up with an orange soul
Heed the crow but ignore the troll
Level up with the future stuff
And never skip to the gate above

‘Cause I’m only a wave
In this ocean of Dave
Hardly anything worth
Your time at all
Your time at all

Rock the game as the gods you are
Leave me here as you’re going far
Wash the yellow from off my skin
This will never be home again

‘Cause I’m only a wave
In this ocean of Dave
Hardly anything worth
Your time at all
Your time at all

‘Cause I’m only a wave
In this ocean of Dave
Hardly anyone else
Will care at all

‘Cause I’m only a wave
In this ocean of Dave
Hardly anything worth
Your time at all
Your time at all
Your time at all

Die and Rise

Original is “Hide and Seek”. Rose request.

Where are we?
What the hell is going on?
The night it only might
Begin to fall
To monsters in the darkness
Sighing… Crying…

Wake us up again
Upon the moon
This fate will wait for me
With felt-lined homes a mess with someone
Who’d stop to tell
Their lies… to me

Die and rise
Bombs and all-seeing eyes
All my dreams
They must seem fake

Dersite twins, our role begins
Where happy comfort hung before
The suicide,
The sweeping insensitivity of this mission

Die and rise
Bombs and all-seeing eyes
(oh, I don’t have to be joined here)
Hopes and dreams (love)
They must seem fake

Mmmm whatcha say,
Mmm that you only mean well?
Well that’s obvious
Mmmm whatcha say,
Mmmm that you think this is best?
Of course it is
Mmmm whatcha say?
Mmmm that I won’t die alone?
I decided this
Whatcha say?
Mmmm what did you say?

Dear regards keep falling out your mouth
Pure sweet talk, but you won’t make it out
Speak no further no you won’t be murdered
You don’t have to die
You don’t have to die

(Die and rise)
Dear regards keep falling out your mouth
Pure sweet talk, but you won’t make it out

(Die and rise)
Speak no further no you won’t be murdered
You don’t have to die
You don’t have to (you don’t have to) die

(Die and rise)
Oh no, you don’t have to die
Oh no, you don’t have to die

(Die and rise)
Oh no, you don’t have to die
You don’t  have to die
You don’t have to die

Some Times

Original is “Some Nights” by Fun. I still think this could have been like one single character but okay if you want to cover this you can do it as any single one of the beta kids or any combination of the beta kids. Which was harder to write but oh well.

And for those that like to say Sburb as es-burb, know that here it’s treated as one syllable. 

Some times, I serve Sburb, building up a tower
Some times, I’m climbing it up
Some times, I feel that this really gives me power
Some times, I feel I’m just so stuck

But I still play on, I still reach the sky
Though friends, I’m still not sure why I even try
Why do I bother? Why do I bother?
This time, why’d I try? I don’t know…
Oh whoa, oh whoa, oh oh
Oh whoa, oh whoa, oh whoa oh oh

This is it, friends, it’s the end -
Why don’t we try again?

Why don’t we break the game already?
I was never one to sit back and die -
Save that for the doom-ed times

I’ve fought twice as hard and I’ve saved your life,
But there it goes again and the dreamers die


But that’s just fine; I find it harder to take in this sight
I’m stained with blood from guardians
oh come on back, come on back, come on back

Oh, come on.. no… no…

Well, some times, I see that I’m at my end
And now I feel alone for a change
And some times, I’m scared I will lose you again
Some times, I’m giving in, I’m giving in…

But I still play on, I still reach the sky
Though friends, I’m still not sure why I even try
Why do I bother? Why do I bother?
This time, why’d I try? (come on)

So this is it? I’m s’posed to die for this?
Wash my hands of life for this?
I miss my guardian for this?

(Come on)

No. When I see stars, when I see, when I see stars,
They aren’t that far

I know that now, they’re what we play for, so play on
So play on. so play on, SO PLAY ON!

Well, say goodbye friends, time to split -
Five minutes in and I’m bored of it

Three years of this, it’s hard and does anybody understand?
I’m stuck right here like I was at home;
But we have a plan and have to go

Who the fuck wants to die alone all fried up by a giant sun?

My heart is facing towards the future
And the hope that we can win

When I took the time to realize…
Oh, I’m going to see
The most amazing things
And then maybe…

Some old friends’ll rise…ahhh…

Oh whoa, oh whoa, oh whoa, oh oh
Oh whoa, oh whoa, oh whoa, oh oh

The other night, you wouldn’t believe
The dream I just had about you and me

I woke alone, but we got to meet
And in the end we’ll beat the mission
And in the end we’ll close the distance… oh…
And in the end we’ll beat the mission
And in the end we’ll close the distance… oh…

Say I’m Yours

Original is “C’est la Mort” by The Civil Wars. This wasn’t a request, but Conny mentioned this song so I looked it up and I really wanted to write a parody for it, so this is for her I guess.

D is for Dave, J is for Jade, B is for Both.

D: Tower stands, a hundred stories tall
D: Hope shines through, and then the tower falls
B: Though we’re gods, we die eventually
B: But don’t die without me

J: Stand our ground, where villains have been met
J: Take the shot, and swallow your regret
B: Saved every time but when it comes to be
B: Don’t die without me

B: Say you care
B: Say I’m yours

B: I am there
B: Forevermore

D(J): Let’s face fate, and do so hand in hand
D: Live our lives, like only godtiers can
B: Living or dead or something in between
B: Tell me you, will take me when you leave
B: Don’t die
J: Please don’t die
B: Don’t die without me

Knight, knight, knight

Original is “Gone, gone, gone” by Phillip Phillips. Anonymous Dave -> Karkat request.

When you think of friends who died
I’ll be here right by your side
We’ll get you through, we’ll get you through
Until you can face your fears
I’ll call, talk, and dry your tears
I’m here for you, I’m here for you

When enemies are back again
And taking on the form of friends
We’ll get you through, we’ll get you through
If we’re sent miles apart
I’m still right there in your heart
I’m here for you, I’m here for you

Knights protect, it’s in the name
So I know you would do the same

And I would do it for you, for you
Karkat, I’m here every time
If it’ll help you sleep at night
Yeah you, for you
You’re a special friend of mine
And you and I are hella tight
And I can be your knight, knight, knight

When you feel you’re forsaken
Like all your friends are taken
I’m not far away, not far away
And if your logs are empty
Not a thing will prevent me
Chatting up all day, find things to say

I can help you through the game
Cause I know you have done the same

So I would do it for you, for you.
Karkat, I’m here every time
If it’ll help you sleep at night
Yeah you, for you
You’re a special friend of mine
And you and I are hella tight
And I can be your knight, knight, knight

You’re my knight of blood
Got a friendship that’s never dying

Like a dream self we shoot off flying
Like a dream self we shoot off flying
Like a dream I can never stop flying..

And I can be your knight, knight, knight
We’re super tight cause we’re the knight, knight, knights

Pesterlogs

Original is “Little Talks” by Of Monsters and Men. A Dave and Rose suicide mission song requested by f33lsposion. If I didn’t label D or R at the beginning of a line, it means it’s sung by both or I couldn’t tell which one should be singing so you can work it out if anyone covers it.

Hey! Hey! Hey!

R: I dont like having to go and have my life be blown
D: Well wake me up I’ll ride along with you
R: You don’t see, you should sleep I’m keeping you away
D: Yeah but Rose this is what I choose to do
R: Oh Dave I could never have you killed
D: Its killing me to see how you’ll fall

Cause though our fate feels desolate
Don’t you count on it
We can change it all


Hey! Hey! Hey!

R: There’s a dark voice whispering I’m destined to die
D: Well tell it that I’ll miss our pesterlogs
R: Soon it will all be over and buried with our past
D: Well maybe we’ll be fine when all is done and I’ll be right and you’ll be wrong
R: These days I feel like I’m wrong most every time
D: I hope that I can help you climb that wall

Cause though our fate feels desolate
Don’t you count on it
We can change it all

Hey!
D: Don’t think I’ll let you die alone
Hey!
D: Your choice is not condoned
Hey!

Though our fate feels desolate
Don’t you count on it
We can change it all

We’re far far far apart
The distance only grows
And in time we’ll be severed too
Though we’re close close close for now 
There’s nothing we can do

D: Just wake me up I’ll fly to see you

R: No sleep sleep sleep for me
R: Please stay away
R: I’ll see you when the game is scratched

Hey!
D: Don’t think I’ll let you die alone
Hey!
D: Your choice is not condoned
Hey!

Though our fate feels desolate
Don’t you count on it
We can change it all

D: Don’t think I’ll let you die alone
Hey!
D: Your choice is not condoned
Hey!

Though our fate feels desolate
Don’t you count on it
We can change it all

Though our fate feels desolate
Don’t you count on it
We can change it all

Though our fate feels desolate
Don’t you count on it
We can change it all

Maybe We’re Gay

Original is “Maybe Someday” by Teen Hearts. A John -> Dave song requested by jakestridork (my 500th follower!)

We are split by the net
But you start the logs that rock up my whole day
And it’s just conversation (small chat)
But it’s still perfect to me

I’ve got this signature bunny
And you wear the ironic shades
And now it’s clear to me I want to see you in person (person)
It’s just what I need

The miles between us are driving me crazy
Dave, did you ever think that maybe I could lie against you
And maybe you could hold me tightly too
I can’t deny I breath you in
Like we’re standing chin to chin
I know the norm is to be straight
But maybe we’re gay (maybe we’re gay)

You wrote me a letter ‘cuz
You sent a gift to lift up my spirits

And since it was my birthday (birthday)
But that’s not the point

So I’ll sit alone in my bedroom
And dream about

So perfect a day where you could come my way
Maybe one day you’ll stay
Until then I guess I’ll just play (just play) this game

The miles between us are driving me crazy
Dave, did you ever think that maybe I could lie against you
And maybe you could hold me tightly too
I can’t deny you every time
Cause I wish you could be mine
I know the norm is to be straight
But maybe 
we’re gay (maybe we’re gay)

And maybe one day you’ll see
That you could be with me
And maybe one day you’ll see (you’ll see)

Maybe I could lie against you
And maybe you could hold me tightly too
I can’t deny I love you so
This is something you should know

I know the norm is to be straight
But maybe we’re gay
Maybe we’re gay
Maybe we’re gay

All That I Am

Original is “All That I’ve Got” by the Used. Anonymous wanted a Jade -> Dave song. It’s um, it’s not very “to Dave” but you can pretend it is…

So cold, that it didn’t even need to snow an’
Dog ears, grey skin and
Now I’m far from human
Alone, I can see the darkness crawling in
So cold, that it didn’t even need to snow an’

I..

I know some place else
Where it is always snowin’
L O, frost and frogs
The days where we were dreamin’
I can’t now
Even if I sleep I’m still not human
So cold, that it didn’t even need to snow an’

I…

I can’t go on
Pretending I can
I’m far from human
And that’s all that I am

I can’t go on
Pretending I can
I’m far from human
And that’s all that I am

On top, I submit to every order given
Below, I want to let just one person in
I dropped so low
I stopped my heart from hearin’
So cold, that I didn’t even feel nothin’

I..


I can’t go on
Pretending I can
I’m far from human
And that’s all that I am

I can’t go on
Pretending I can
I’m far from human
And that’s all that I am

And that’s all that I am
Yeah, that’s all that I am
That’s all that I am
That’s all that I am
That’s all that I am!

So cold, that it didn’t even need to snow an’
So cold, that I didn’t even feel nothin’

I can’t go on
Pretending I can
I’m far from human
And that’s all that I am

I can’t go on
Pretending I can
I’m far from human
And that’s all that I am

And that’s all that I am
Yeah, that’s all that I am

Harley

Original is “Who Knew” by Pink. Rampuz wanted a Dave -> Jade song.

You took my hand
You were my friend
You promised me we’d meet again
Uh huh
That’s right
I took your words
And I believed
In everything
You said to me
Yeah huh
That’s right

If someone said three years from now
You’d be grimbark
I’d stand up and cut them down
Cause you’re not dark
You’re a good girl
You can change the whole world
And you will
Harley

Remember when we were such fools
And so convinced and just too cool
Oh no
No no
I wish that we could play again
I wish I could have back my friend
I’d give anything

When someone said light the stars up now
'fore they lose spark
I guess I just didn’t see how
They could go dark
You’re a bad girl
You can change the whole world
And you will
Harley

Yeah yeah
I’ll keep you locked in my head
Until you’re sweet again
Until you’re
Until you’re sweet again
And I won’t forget you my friend
What happened

If someone said three years from now
You’d be grimbark
I’d stand up and cut them down
Cause you’re not dark and
What I’ll do
Is miss you
Until you’re sweet again
In time you’ll
Get better
I pray for that endeavor
And I keep
The memory
Of your old self close to me
My darling
Harley
My darling
My darling
Harley
My darling
Come find me
My darling
Harley
Harley

Grimbark

Original is “Perfect” by Simple Plan. Happy wanted a grimbark Jade song. 

Hey, Dave, look inside
Think back to other times
Did you miss me throughout the three years?
And do you think I’ve 
Lost my old life? 
Traded it for servitude 

You must know I do not approve what I do

And now I try to resist it 
But it’s too persistent, Dave…
I’m never gonna be what I used to be
Can’t pretend that
I’m alright
And you can’t change me

'Cuz it's not the same 
I just keep on changing
I’m sorry 
I must be
Grimbark

Now it’s just too late
And I can’t go back
I’m sorry 
I must be
Grimbark


I try not to think
About the pain I feel inside
Did you know you’ll always be my hero?
All the days you spent with me
Now seem so far away
And you might think I don’t care anymore

And now I try to resist it 
But it’s too persistent, Dave…
I’m never gonna be what I used to be
Can’t stand to cause a fright
And nothing’s alright

'Cuz it’s not the same 
I just keep on changing
I’m sorry 
I must be 
Grimbark

Now it’s just too late
And I can’t go back
I’m sorry 
I must be
Grimbark


Nothing’s gonna change the threats that I’ve made
Nothing’s gonna fix this witch a space
But don’t turn your back
You know that it’s still me
Just dig deeper down
And we could share a laugh

But it’s not the same 
I just keep on changing
I’m sorry 
I must be 
Grimbark

Now it’s just too late
And I can’t go back
I’m sorry 
I must be
Grimbark


'Cuz it’s not the same 
I just keep on changing
I’m sorry 
I must be 
Grimbark
Now it’s just too late
And I can’t go back
I’m sorry 
I must be
Grimbark
