You see us soar through the sky, flight goggles shining bright, with wings of steel, faster than anypony who can fly. We are the speedy cure, we’re what you’re looking for. The antidote sent to impress crowds who always want more. Some say that we’re all fake, boy that’s a big mistake, I’ll challenge anypony, life or death? Your choice to make. ‘cause we will not back down, I’ll turn this right around. These rumours stain our legacy of which I am so proud. No. We refuse to let you win, you’re a liar and always have been. There are dark stories of our past that I bet you don’t know. The truth about where we came from kept secret even though we are so famous, these secrets shame us. Lab rats from day one until somepony dares save us. So desperate were we to be known by all Equestria, we sold our souls and so ourselves unto Celestia, and now we don’t even know where we stand within this place. Just doing as we’re told and hoping one day that we’ll escape. With all these years I’ve wasted, if only I was brave enough to face it, this was too good to be true from the very start, I should never have believed this was from the heart. We were but young ponies so absorbed in our dreams, it took too long to realize that we had been tricked with ease. such promises of fame and fortune proved too much to take. If asked the same question right now, I’d make the same mistake. for even though I do regret the things that I have done, I’d rather take on all the blame myself for everyone. It’s better to live with it all and save the ones I need that just give in and let it bring all of us to our knees. Leave us alone.
