about

After the failed siege, changelings (those who survived) tried frantically to escape capture, scattered as they were throughout Equestria. Some went back to the hive, some tried merging into towns, and our singer simply ran as far as she could.

After a few sleepless nights she collapsed and was captured, only to find that her captors were actually changelings in disguise. These changelings had the idea to form a band, as a means of gaining love and attention (hiding in plain sight). All they needed was a singer.

Hungry and cold, but now in the company of friends, our singer agreed. Survivors of the Siege was born.

Aftermath

Breaking News:

After another successful raid, we can confirm the capture of 15 changelings, presumed to be directly involved in the recent siege. Authorities ask the public to report strange activity or behavior, and to remain vigilant.

Fleeting images, before my eyes they pass,
Broken bones, bleeding on the grass
While I’m healed of all but the phantom pains
The memories still remain

And I’m blessed since I crawled away
Though the hunter is now the prey
Though the hunger my will betrays
I’ve lost all that I’ve ever loved
But lived to suffer another day

I change my form to hide my scars
I keep running, don’t know how far
The visions haunt me, by day I fake reprieve
But at night, they’re all I see

My sisters, my brothers,
They’re falling, they’re falling,
Into the ground
Screaming, they’re crying,
Their voices are fading,
Then there’s no sound
I’m sobbing, I’m waking,
The moon is spectating
I run to a new town.

It’s been weeks now, oh how the panic lasts
Us and them, caught in frantic dance
I avert my eyes, they scrutinize my frame
They don’t ask, I don’t give a name

They keep catching us, or so the newscasts say
Broken by hunger, the weak from safety stray
Their fate I share, but with delay
Even now I waste away

My vision blurs, my stomach churns
I crack and falter, cue despair
My world is fading, I’m well aware
As I fall I utter one last prayer

For the survivors, the few there are
For those fallen, watching from afar
If I must join them, I pray for dignity
Instead my nightmares, are all I see

My sisters, my brothers,
They’re falling, they’re falling,
Into the ground
Screaming, they’re crying,
Their voices are fading,
Then there’s no sound
I’m sobbing, I’m waking,
The moon is spectating
Looks like I’ve been found.

Changelings, they greet me
They clothe and they feed me
They say I’m safe and sound

They trust me completely
For their plan they need me
I promise to stick around
