Deep in the pages of history
Lies a shadow hiding in a mystery
A late night story buried far away
Until it once again sees the light of day

And when the little colts and fillies turn out all lights
And tell a story of a factory as black as night
The luxury of rainbows comes at a price
Just ignore the screams, and don't think twice

You've proven to yourself and to all of us
That you're not fit to fly like a Pegasus
You don't even deserve those wings you bear
When you stand beside a legend, you don't even compare
All of the failures help to fuel success
In the bloody and visceral weather game of Chess
And just because you've disappointed you'll pay the price
Now accept your fate and die in the Pegasus Device

Phantom screams echo through the ruined facility
A horrible silence builds an eerie tranquility
The souls of many innocent fill the air
And the hope that they all died with scattered here and there

A mighty machine built within the wake
Of a long dead dream, little demon awake
The citizens sleep, never quite knowing when
The device will reawaken, hungry again

You've proven to yourself and to all of us
That you're not fit to fly like a Pegasus
You don't even deserve those wings you bear
When you stand beside a legend, you don't even compare
All of the failures help to fuel success
In the bloody and visceral weather game of Chess
And just because you've disappointed you'll pay the price
Now accept your fate and die in the Pegasus Device

All of the failures help to fuel success
In the bloody and visceral weather game of Chess
And just because you've disappointed you'll pay the price
Now accept your fate and die in the Pegasus Device

I don't even remember my past
I don't remember who I used to be
I don't even remember my friends of old
I don't remember my destiny

My mane is purple and my coat is orange
What I've become? I have no idea.
I only know one simple thing
The name they gave me: Absentia

You've proven to yourself and to all of us
That you're not fit to fly like a Pegasus
You don't even deserve those little wings you bear
When you stand beside a legend, you don't even compare
All of the failures help to fuel success
In the bloody and visceral weather game of Chess
And just because you've disappointed you'll pay the price
Now accept your fate and die in the Pegasus Device

I don't even recognize your rainbow mane
When you hide it behind that mask of shame
You don't even deserve those wings you bear
You used to be a legend, a righteous mare
All of the failures help to fuel success
In the bloody and visceral weather game of Chess
And then you sit upon your throne and you roll your diamond dice
And you send us all to die in your Pegasus Device

In the Rainbow Factory, where fears and horrors come true
In the Rainbow Factory, where not a single soul gets through
In the Rainbow Factory, where failures pay their toll
Now I've awoken, and I'm taking back control

    My OpinionIm pretty sure that everyone who knows this song knows what it's about but for those who don't here is my personal opinion.
    The song is about a factory that is well known by the citizens of cloudsdale and it was shut down but the people knew eventually it would be reactivated. And it's about a Pegasus who failed the flight test and they are shunned and called a failure so they are used in a different way and in the end it turns out to be scootaloo who failed the test and said to rainbow dash "you used to be a legend a righteous mare" because she held her as her hero then she found out she was in charge of the Pegasus device and the rainbow factory and didn't want her to be her hero anymore.
