They Cancelled Firefly

To the tune of Mr. Brightside by the Killers. I love this band and also Firefly - and They Cancelled Firefly fits so well into the chorus. The verses are a bit scattered at the moment, but I think it would be super fun to do A Capella as the riff could be split between the varied sections of the choir. Anyway, here it is! (Formatting hates me again because of ODT)

Original                                                Firefly

I'm coming out of my cage            As foretold by a sage
And I've been doing just fine         Much like when planets align
Gotta gotta be down                   Destined for great renown
Because I want it all                   Yeah all nerds heard the call
It started out with a kiss             It started well on syfy
How did it end up like this            A civil war from on high
It was only a kiss,                      Tell me why did they try?
it was only a kiss                       The browncoats couldn't survive
Now I'm falling asleep                  Now they're playing for keeps
And she's calling a cab                With a captain named Mal
While he's having a smoke           Who wears a badass brown coat
And she's taking a drag               and takes shit from no man
Now they're going to bed             With the crew that he heads
And my stomach is sick               and a beautiful ship
And it's all in my head                 doubles as a homestead
But she's touching his chest         But you see I digress 
Now, he takes off her dress         yeah, this show it was the best
Now, letting me go                     yeah – tell me true
I just can't look its killing me        how many seasons did they make? 
And taking control                      not even one?


Jealousy, turning saints into the sea    Joss Whedon, did not get the chance he earned
Swimming through sick lullabies           With that show about vampires
Choking on your alibis                       Somehow bore the network's Ire.
But it's just the price I pay                And they said no not today.
Destiny is calling me                         Serenity is not to be
Open up my eager eyes                    And in spite of all advice
Cause I'm Mr Brightside                     They Cancelled Firefly

I'm coming out of my cage               So the foreshadowing
And I've been doing just fine            amounted to not alot
Gotta gotta be down                      plot lines carefully lain
Because I want it all                       grinded to a swift halt
It started out with a kiss                 Questions doom to remiss
How did it end up like this                Will simon ever find bliss?
It was only a kiss, it was only a kiss  Will he ever get kissed? He and Kaylee should kiss.
Now I'm falling asleep                      River's torment runs deep
And she's calling a cab                    She kicked Jayne in the nads
While he's having a smoke               Wash may seem like a joke
And she's taking a drag                   But Zoe's hot enough to brag
Now they're going to bed                Shepherd book has got cred
And my stomach is sick                   Inara turning her tricks
And it's all in my head                    Yeah she's up in Mal's head
But she's touching his chest           But again I digress
Now, he takes off her dress           yeah, the movie is a mess
Now, letting me go  yeah,             we won't know
I just can't look its killing me           Or even get to see the enD

And taking control                        Of this whole 'verse


Jealousy, turning saints into the sea   Joss Whedon, did not get the chance he earned
Swimming through sick lullabies          With that show about vampires
Choking on your alibis                      Somehow bore the network's Ire
But it's just the price I pay               And they said no not today.
Destiny is calling me                        Serenity is not to be
Open up my eager eyes                   And in spite of all advice
Cause I'm Mr Brightside                    They Cancelled Firefly


I never
I never
I never
I never
