Stuff in the description, yes yes yes

This week's Toastbeard theme was "The Big Reveal." I thought about it, and I decided, "What if not all manticores are as nice as the one that the mane 6 encounter in the second episode?"

This song is a race for your life against the manticore. I went all out, and I'm super proud of the result. I hope you enjoy!

Lyrics: The clouds rolling overhead block out all the light The twisting trees and branches are an ominous sight You know that something's watching, hear a howl in the night And beneath your calm exterior you tremble with fright

Your legs begin to shake, and your tail starts to sway You feel its hunger for you as you try to hide your dismay You think you might be able to keep the beast at bay But heed your better judgment; you know it's unwise to stay,


A mighty bellow signals that the hunt has commenced You start to hoof it, bending to your own common sense You know no one's around to help you mount a defense And as you run, the air you're breathing starts to get dense

You try not to stumble, legs aquiver with fear And all its vicious snarling is like a gun in your ear Adrenaline numbs your body as it kicks into gear You see your peaceful village and you finally think you're clear


Run from the Manticore It senses your fear So there's nowhere to hide, now

It's a creature like no other before: A feral killing machine So you should stay inside, now

Cower before the Manticore Under cover of night It'll beat you til you're black and blue

A terrifying carnivore; You better watch your back because It's gonna make a filly out of you

You loose a cry for help as you duck into town You feel the massive tremors when its paws hit the ground Your fellow ponies wake from the cacophonous sound But no one tries to save you from the monster inbound

You collapse, exhausted from your perilous hike The realization hits you that your head's on a pike You bow before the manticore with tears in your eyes You close your eyes in horror as you wait for its blow to strike
