Rockopolousaninjananophone Eternal - The Vishnu Cycle , a song in six parts by Frankie and the Falangists

(1. Lizard Wizards)
Vishnu ... Vishnu ... Vishnu ... Vishnu .... (I make love to a tiger grrrr!)

(2. Character Sheet)
Putting up your dungeonmaster's screen, better than a sunscreen
Roll your d20, Luke Reinhart's faint dream -
Like a +3 sword of summoning, summon up a first date?
Now that you're forty, it's far too late

You never leave your home ...

(3. City at the Edge of Midnight)
Uni-burger, token black girl, aryan Hank with bow
Presto geeklord, midget warlord, Sheila steals, bad show
rollercoaster groaning, oh no here comes dungeonmaster
Short-arsed paedo science teacher with a face like plaster
Cavalier has got my vote, he was from real world
Did you ever see the one where Vengor was a girl?
Hang on no that was the Battle of the Planets now
Alternate realities but the one thing I do know

They never made it home ...

(4. Vishnu Cycle)
Vishnu on a motorcyle, Christ is on his bike,
Allah better get a moped, Gods don't have to hike
In a race to save the planet, but the here and now is then -
Like Jay Allen versus Superman, they race and race again ...

They'll never save our home!

(5 Alternate Realities)
I likes my meat, Vishnu likes his meat
Rockopolousaninjananophone Eternal
Round and round we go, I likes my meat
Rockopolousaninjananophone Eternal

(6. Wizard Lizards - slight reprise)
Vishnu ... Vishnu ... Vishnu ... Vishnu ....

Rockopolousaninjananophone Eternal - The Vishnu Cycle, an epic Ninja beat poem as told by The Zombie Love Militia.

Twelve thousand years ago, the nomadic ninja tribes finally found the land promised to them by their ancestors. For centuries, they had wandered the earth alone, making their living by killing for money and playing crappy gigs in bars, never asking anything from anyone except for the simple pleasure of wandering aimlessly in the desert. When they finally arrived at their sacred grounds, their ninjavana, their destiny, they christened it... ROCKOPOLOUS.
Unfortunately for the poor ninja people, they were not the first to arrive. The fearsome motorbike gang, The Vishnu Cycle, had already staked out their territory there and were prepared to defend it at any costs. Many noble ninjas died in the resulting struggle, because they were no match for the Hindu Hell’s Angels and their terrifying vehicles. The ninjas prayed to their mighty stealth gods in hopes of revealing the bikers’ weakness, and one day it came to them.
Eisenhower Miyazaki, a junior ninja second class notorious for his bad spelling, was wandering through a field practicing his banjo when he tripped over a strange object. It rang at him menacingly. At once, he knew it was a secret ninja artifact sent from the gods to defeat their rivals - this was it! The Vishnu Cycle was allergic to phones!
In the bloody conflict that followed, many brave ninjas lost their lives, but they had accomplished what they set out to do. The Vishnu Cycle had vanished from the earth, but the world would know their legacy in the form of that ninja folk song: Rockopolousaninjananophone Eternal - The Vishnu Cycle

:oops: Yes - I can hardly accuse J$ of plagarism! And yes, I also realise that Imran is Muslim, not Hindu - so it makes even less sense than the rest of the song, oh well...

Rockopolousaninjananophone Eternal or The Vishnu-cycle
by Mostly Harmless

Verse 1:
Puce: On the tower of Babel there are some things you can't do.
Plat: One, we found out, was worship the false idol Vishnu.
Puce: Playing rock 'n roll is the only thing worse.
Both: We did both so God cursed us and knocked us to earth.

Chorus:
Our new communication barrier can have its ups and its downs
Incomprehensibility, we can't say "guitar" because now we pronounce it
"Rockopolousaninjananophone". [we're] Eternally cursed to confuse everyone.
But we love our new religious fan base, seeing how they think we're always "speaking in tongues".

Verse 2:
Plat: The worst thing about a band who only speaks gibberish,
Puce: Is that landing a gig these days can be a bit ch...allenging.
Plat: There's no money in songs that people can't understand.
Both: It's either give up or become a death metal band! (Raaargh!).

Chorus:
Our new communication barrier can have its ups and its downs
Incomprehensibility, we can't say "guitar" because now we pronounce it
"Rockopolousaninjananophone". [we're] Eternally cursed to confuse everyone.
But we love our new religious fan base, seeing how they think we're always "speaking in tongues".

Garbled Instrument Solos:
Puce: Rockop-olous-anin-janan-ophone solo!
Plat: Accord-uko-torgo-borine-olin solo!
Both: Heli-clavi-mando-tom-ornado solo!

Mean-spirited Banter:
Puce: Hey, there goes Vishnu on his Hindu-mobile!
Plat: I think the politically correct term is "Vishnu-cycle"
Puce: Eh, whatever... Let's go knock him off and take it.
Plat: Yeah, OK!

Rockopolousaninjananophone Eternal - The Vishnu Cycle

I was rocking out at a lollapalooza concert clone
but if i'd known what was happening, I probably would've stayed home
This had been planned for centuries
In legend and in prophecies

When the music's just right and the backbeat shakes you to the core
and you're dancing until your body starts to get sore
You don't expect to get attacked
By crafty ninjas dressed in black

CHORUS

Rockopolousaninjananophone
Now I've been cursed and I can never go home
Again

Caught a glimpse of a ninja commumicating on a bananaphone
and if i'd been thinking straight, I guess that I should have known
Something didn't seem quite right
and lightning flashed and filled the night

So now I'm stuck here, and the only way I can leave
is for someone to take my place, the same way they tricked me
I miss my family and my friends
But this Vishnu cycle never ends

The ninjas came up they were all dressed in black
and when the time was right they prepared their attack
and now I have been cursed and I'll never go back home again

Rockopolousaninjananophone Eternal - The Vishnu Cycle

Post by Mogosagatai » Tue Nov 01, 2005 5:58 pm

There are no lyrics is this weeks phuntsong, but the music tells a story. Here's a general outline, so that those who wish may follow along. Also, <a href="http://songfight.net/forums/viewtopic.p ... here</a>'s an explanation of what's these things mean.

Phunt Your Friends <b>Rockopolousaninjananophone Eternal - The Vishnu Cycle</b>.

I. <u>Rockopolousaninjananophone Eternal</u> (:00)

II. <u>Rhy Ninjru's Wheel</u> (8:00)

III. <u>The Vishnu Cycle</u>

a. <i>Matsya</i> (16:00)

The world falls into sin. The great king Manu is paying penance at the seaside, when a fish appears and asks the king to rescue him. The king puts him in a jar, but then the fish grows to enormous size (breaking the jar), and it turns out it's an avatar of Vishnu. Matsya (that's the giant fish's name) tells Manu to build a great ark and to take a bunch of animals and good people on it. Manu does so, and then a huge flood comes and destroys all the sinners.

b. <i>Kurma</i> (17:50)

There is great battle going on between the devtas and asuras (gods and demons). The devtas ask Vishnu for help, so he tells them to use a big mountain to churn the sea, which will create a nectar of immortality. They ask the asuras for help in exchange for sharing the nectar once it comes. So the devtas and asuras churn the sea with the mountain for a while, using a huge serpent as a rope, but then the mountain begins to sink. Vishnu comes as a giant tortoise, Kurma, and he keeps the mountain afloat. As soon as the nectar comes, the asuras grab it, but Kurma manages to get it from them and give it to the devtas, who then drink it and become immortal.

c. <i>Varaha</i> (19:37)

Hiranyaksha, an asura who has been given invincibility by Brahma, goes on a reign of terror and conquers the world, sending the earth to Pataal Loka, the underworld beneath the sea. But it turns out that he's actually not invincible to boars, so Vishnu turns into Varaha the great boar, goes to Pataal Loka, and battles Varaha. He kills the demon and returns to the world to above the surface.

d. <i>Narasimha</i> (21:19)

Hiranyakasyapa (Hiranyaksha's brother) had convinced Brahma to grant that he could neither be killed at day nor night, inside nor outside, by man, beast, nor god. After the wish was granted, he commanded that no one worhip any gods, save himself. His son, Prahlada, still prayed to Vishnu, however, and this enraged Hiranyakasyapa. The demon tried to kill his son a few times, to no avail (the power of Vishnu saved Prahlada). One evening, Hiranyakasyapa was particularly angry at Prahlada (who had been saying the Vishnu is everywhere), and he knocked down a pillar, asking "Is Vishnu in there?" Sure enough, Vishnu came out of the pillar, as a half-man/half-lion/half-god (yes, three halfs) named Narasimha, and since it was evening (half-day/half-night), and they weren't quite inside or outside, Narasimha was able to slaughter Hiranyakasyapa.

e. Vamana (22:40)

Bali, Prahlada's grandson, conquered the world, though he was somewhat more noble than his asura ancestors who did the same. Still, the gods didn't like that, so Vishnu incarnated as a dwarf, Vamana. He grew up in Bali's household as a servant. One day, he approached Bali and asked for alms: that he could own as much of Bali's empire as he could walk across in three steps. Bali amusedly agreed, and then the dwarf grew to enormous size and stepped over all of earth in one step, and all of heaven in the next. The king, being virtuous, then offered his own head as a place for Vishnu to step next, so Vishnu crushed him.

f. Parasurama (24:30)

The world was becoming overrun by kshatriyas (warriors) in place of brahmanas (priests), so Vishnu came as Parasurama, a warrior-priest. Parasurama's father, Jamdagni, had a cow that could give an endless supply of milk, but one day, the evil king Kartavirya had his men come to steal it--but Parasurama killed them all. So then the Kartavirya had his men kill Jamdagni, which of course enraged Parasurama. So then Parasurama when on a wild battle spree and killed most of the kshatriyas, once again returning power to the brahmanas.

g. Rama (25:26)

Rama was an ideal man, and his wife Sita was the ideal woman. He was also a prince. One day, Rama's stepmother (who wanted her son to have, Rama's younger half-brother, to have the throne) banished him to a forest, and he gladly obeyed her wishes (being the ideal son). Sita went with him, but the demon Ravana came and abducted her at one point. Rama went on a long search to find her, and ended up battling and killing Ravana. Then Rama was a king for about a thousand years.

h. Krishna (27:00)

Krishna was charioteering the king Arjuna on the cusp of a great battle, when he revealed himself as an incarnation of Vishnu. Then he had an enormous philosophical and spiritual discourse with Arjuna, which is known as the Bhagvad-Gita, in which he shaped how human beings should behave (in a less idealized manner than that of his previous incarnation, Rama).

i. Buddha (28:18)

Buddha taught that humans should seek Enlightenment, and his teachings entailed an eight-fold path which, if properly followed, would lead to it.

j. Kalki (30:56)

This one hasn't come yet. The world will have fallen into sin once again, and Kalki will come riding a white horse and carrying a blazing sword, and he will destroy the world, preparing it for a fresh, new cycle.
