The Lyrics

Ok. This song may seem like a stretch if I was to think these beams of magic are sentient. I will leave this to other creative people to decide who would sing this song. This may also provide some insight into possible dangers that magic can do to humans. In which case, this song can be seen a precursor to the next three, when considering the targets.
(Instrumental intro)
(screen show of beams of magic in human world, buzzing around erratically, taking various outline forms)
What shall we do, to put them, through the paces
Where beasts, and monsters, form
How shall we change, their human faces
For magic to become, more, and more

Shall we mess with technology?
Shall we tell them their will is not free?
Shall we make them start a fight?
Shall we go day and night?
Fill their lives with strife?
From west to the east
Genetic, disease
Make them run, from our fun
Make humans all dumb
See that Cinch, in a winch
With pressure, they won’t flinch
Make backpacks for pets
Move objects, recall events,
Diamond supply disdain
Break bones, then explodes, and
Never relent at all
With friendship at your call
Snowmound Pile is a technocratic individual. He has become immersed in technology after reading a series of books by Binary Cipher. Much of these details included being the forefront to whistleblowers and keep corruption in check. At age 12, he developed a habit for hacking computers and joined up with Synonymous (not affiliated with Anonymous, just a coincidence). Although not as experienced, after finding information from a bio-tech company regarding new lymphoma treatments, that would actually act as placebos, Snowmound Pile took the initiative even with Synonymous' approval. The result was that federal authorities were able to track the hacking to Snowmound's location and ended up arrested at age 13. Snowmound may have thought that representatives from Synonymous would defend him in court (like other friends would), but as hackers go they are more mobile and mysterious. Snowmound got sent to a juvenile correctional facility (Insert name here) for 1.5 years, with appeal for probation. Snowmound would eventually be put under house arrest, for the remaining 9 months without access to technology. What Snowmound did not know was that Picket Gate and Ivy Drip were in the gallery of his trial and felt compelled to look into his story. In him, they saw someone who lost everything (his trust in online friends, applied technology, an online presence w/o a criminal record). It was during the 4th month of his incarceration that Picket Gate went to visit him. With the shock of who this kid was, Picket Gate simply said "Only cowards who hide behind an online presence would not be committed to your friendship IRL." "You will have friends on the outside after you have served your time, but only if you appreciate RL more with us." During his house arrest, other members of Picket's clique would hang out, pass homework assignments from Canterlot High School to him, even writing letters as correspondence. Snowmound was quite relieved when he could go back on the grid. Now he focusses more on innovative solutions, inventing, modifying current technology, but also being more careful of his own surveillance. Some oversight can be infringing on Snowmound's privacy. A new hangout for Picket's clique would soon come to pass. Snowmound Pile Bio: Age: 17 years old (but seen a junior given his jail time), Height: 5"7, wears glasses/contacts lenses, slim-to-normal build, Interests: inventing, online gaming, hacking, virtual reality, technology modification, bowling, pinball and other arcade machines, game theory enthusiast. Adjustment to other Bios: Ivy Drip and Retrogradient have normal builds. Next track: Green Thumbs Up

Pacing off a little bit here, seems like randomness. I love that you took this song, which only appears in the movie and live performance, but it needs more work.

Change "become" to "be"?
Agrimorfee - December 11, 2018 - Report this comment
hmm, the OS line is "In search of more (and more) and more applause." Maybe you should change your line altogether?
Arch Vile - December 16, 2018 - Report this comment
Ok. One idea to change that line would be "To horrify, this world, (this world) for sport."

Not bad at all. It's neat that it naturally paces with the rhythm even though it's not the same number of words.
