HighwindI'll take you to the winds up high,Highwind by AlmostWhitey
I am an engineer!
I rule the great and boundless sky,
I am the rocketeer!
I smoke, I fly, I drink my tea,
For, goddamn, it is right!
From blue horizons to the sea,
I'm rising up and fight.
I dream of endless, far-off, space
And yet I'm on the ground.
I've lost my hope, my love, my face,
But my lost grit I've found.
My props are spinning in the air,
A breeze under my wings.
Above the valley of despair,
Much better are the things.
My airship is my shield and sword,
My engine and my fuel.
Just call me Cid, mate, Aether-Lord;
Drink tea and keep your cool.
Above the Azure SkiesPut your goggles down, my friend,Above the Azure Skies by AlmostWhitey
We're going on a trip!
Around the world and to it's end,
Inside my cosmic aether ship.
The engine starts and purrs content,
The steam filled boilers shaking.
The tinkered arms spread out and bend,
While my iron hawk is waking.
Far away, in open skies,
Where the westwind-falcon flies,
To the realm of floating lands,
Of unbound highs and drifting strands.
On shiny wings of copper gold,
We're gliding on the upwinds bold.
The abbey of the ravens waits,
The castle in the air.
And while the wind of fury fades,
We see the roofs of Steamtown flare.
Countless buildings fill the sea,
The ocean of the stars.
And while the clockwork ticks with glee,
I'm raising altitude and bars.
To the gates of dawn we ride,
Through dark horizons in the night
And brave into the newborn day
Across the bridge of it's first ray,
Until we reach the southern banks,
Of the land of cats and fangs.
The unbent twin peaks rising up
Above the jungle isles.
And while I drink my tea, a cup,
The Battle of the Tempest (Steampunk)I.The Battle of the Tempest (Steampunk) by AlmostWhitey
We fly through the thunder and lightning,
The aether-gods crossing their arms.
Around us the streams howling frightening,
The airmen are holding their charms.
Our mighty propellers rotating,
The steam engines powering up.
The stormwinds are tearing the plating
And sparks fly from every hub.
The airship is riding the tunnel,
The nimbus clouds devious black.
Before us, we're seeing a funnel,
Above it, the sky pirates flag.
Our captain is yelling his orders,
The motors are drowning his words.
We're reaching the aether storms borders,
Followed by fast iron birds.
Their gunners are opening fire
And screeching the sirens resound.
We raise our cannons up higher
And into their broadside we pound.
Two airships with full speed colliding,
The steam-planes are dancing around.
On up-drafts the two vessels gliding,
Below us the far away ground.
We circle like harriers preying
And biding our time to attack,
Until, while their whole ship is swaying,
Our cannonballs hitting their d
