This was the final round entry for 2013's Wily Castle Remix Gauntlet (WCRG): ocremix.org/forums/showthread.php?t=44149 The "Robot Master Royalty" team included myself, ladyWildfire, and Sterling Ortiz; throughout most of the competition, we took turns doing remixes of various Capcom/Mega Man themes, but for this final round, we all collaborated. Beth did the actual music (although I did contribute some vocal mixing help and some minor synth parts), I wrote all the lyrics (each of us got a verse and Beth & Sterling tweaked their lyrics a bit), and Sterling also contributed some flute parts.
This track incorporates musical elements from FOUR different sources: Tornado Man from Mega Man 9 (Beth's chosen source), Galaxy Man from Mega Man 9 (my source), Dive Man from Mega Man 4 (Sterling's source), and the Ending Theme from Mega Man 6.
Beth did a great job incorporating all the different parts of the different sources and did some great wrangling with the different parts of the mix... this is honestly one of my favorites songs of hers... hope you enjoy! oh and make sure you check out more of Beth's music here: soundcloud.com/ladywildfire
Adventure of a Lifetime, was so sweet
but your Lifetime Adventure ain't complete
all those little moments from day to day
don't ever let them slip away
it's what's in front of you right now that's real
even though it's over and you may feel
empty inside, won't you stay?
"big picture" is how you were made
each moment brings a brand new challenge
and the only question is, will you allow it
to bring you the thrill that you always wanted
or will you run away on an endless hunt for it?
you can search the galaxy for life
but please, just open your eyes
it's right in front of you, this whole time
the grass isn't greener, no matter how you try
the only thing for certain is death and taxes
that along with a few natural disasters
like a tornado or a wave that crashes
into your dreams, and then they shatter
million pieces, million ways
in a split second your life can change
something as simple as a word said in haste
can bring about a great deal of pain
but don't let it all keep you down
take that pain and turn it around
give it all to the ones you love
and no matter what, don't give up
keep your feet firm on the ground
but don't be afraid to dream in the clouds
ignore all the lies and all that stuff
let your Lifetime Adventure take you above
take a dive deep in the ocean
or keep your feet always in motion
you just can't run, and you sure can't hide
from the pain that'll come inside
it may not be a big commotion
it may just be the tiniest quotient
of your life that'll break your stride
and you'll find yourself on a different ride
"Clearly not what you wanted?"
get it in your head to just accept it
you'll find yourself with new affections
and your heart's gonna turn resurrected
I think you will soon see clear
Adventure of a Lifetime; that what you're after!
So we'll take you, on a Lifetime Adventure
That's who we are, the Robot Master Royalty!
