inspired by Iain M. Banks


My name is Anaplian
The Culture is my home
though I come from a distant Shellworld
where my father holds the throne

But now that worlds been torn apart
I know I must return
my brother's life's in peril
my father's castle burns

Sister Warrior
Culture Soldier
Contact Martyr
Shellworld Savior!

An evil wretch now holds the throne
a price on my brother's skull!
When I touch down on this shitty world
I'm gonna show them all

But now it seems an ancient force
has awoken in the caves
set there in the distant past
to dig a million graves


On my backwards home planet
they say I'm just a girl
But I'm an SC Warrior
a walking arsenal

I'm a Culture agent
Special Circumstances Arm
and so my life I'll sacrifice
to rid this world of harm
