We didn’t start the fire by Billy Joel – A shameless Bioniclization

2001, Tohunga
Welcome Toa, everyone.
Tahu, Gali, Rahi run.
Enjoy the Mata Nui sun.
French fries, MNOLG
Masks, sets, comics, cake,
A book came out in the wake.

We didn’t start the fire,
But it keeps burning,
Our thoughts keep turning,
We didn’t start the fire,
We didn’t light it,
But we tried to ride it.

2002, Bohrok,
Round sets, what a shock,
Krana contest, Toa back,
Bahrag, Nuva snack.

We didn’t start the fire,
But it keeps burning,
Our thoughts keep turning,
We didn’t start the fire,
We didn’t light it,
But we tried to ride it.

2003, Bohrok-Kal
Repeats of last fall.
Rahkshi, Makuta here
A movie some hold dear.
Takanuva, Kohlii match, Nokama head-scratch,
Turaga’s home, battle won, looks like we’ve just begun!

We didn’t start the fire,
But it keeps burning,
Our thoughts keep turning,
We didn’t start the fire,
We didn’t light it,
But we tried to ride it.

2004, Metru Nui,
Toa Metru, Turaga Dumey,
Krekka, Morbuzak,
Nihiki and Nivhawk,
Lhikan, past his prime,
Matau in the lime,
Nokama, tsk,tsks,
Vakama and the Great Disks.
Impostor, seeing red,
Matoran sleepy heads.

We didn’t start the fire,
But it keeps burning,
Our thoughts keep turning,
We didn’t start the fire,
We didn’t light it,
But we tried to ride it.

2005, Visorak,
Toa Metru totally clocked.
Roodaka, Sidorak,
Krahka gets a midnight snack,
Secrets, Zivion, Whenua in oblivion,
Spinners, Tahtorak, Toa and the Keelerak,
Keetongu, the Great Rescue,
Makuta escapes too.

We didn’t start the fire,
But it keeps burning,
Our thoughts keep turning,
We didn’t start the fire,
We didn’t light it,
But we tried to ride it.

2006, Nuva lose,
Matoran on the move.
Piraka, Inika, Axonn and Brutaka,
Nektann, Zaktan,
Antidermis and the Band.
Vezon, Fenrakk, Inika in the sea block.

We didn’t start the fire,
But it keeps burning,
Our thoughts keep turning,
We didn’t start the fire,
We didn’t light it,
But we tried to ride it.

2007, Undersea,
Mahri Nui colony,
Barraki, more trouble,
Hydruka and the air bubble.
Toa, save the day,
Not sure about the way.
Hydraxon, Makuta back, Matoro and Pridak,
Tuyet, Artaka’s Staff, Mata Nui breathes his last,
Matoro, Rescue,
Mata Nui lives anew!

We didn’t start the fire,
But it keeps burning,
Our thoughts keep turning,
We didn’t start the fire,
We didn’t light it,
But we tried to ride it.

2008, In the sky,
With these Toa that can fly.
Makuta, Order here, fighting for the next year.
Triglax, Helryx, Toa spilt, The Shadowed One,
Vahi, Voporak,
Karda Nui, energy shock.
Takanuva, Order gaff, Teridax gets the last laugh…

We didn’t start the fire,
But it keeps burning,
Our thoughts keep turning,
We didn’t start the fire,
We didn’t light it,
But we tried to ride it.

2009, where are we?
Hello, Mata Nui!
Glatorian, Agori, Skrall and their cavalry, 
Cheap movie, hardly best,
And now for all the rest!

We didn’t start the fire,
But it keeps burning,
Our thoughts keep turning,
We didn’t start the fire,
We didn’t light it,
But we tried to ride it.

2010, Robot fight,
Blasting us into the night,
Golden Armor, Tahu down,
Battle raging all around.
Journey’s End, Makuta dead,
Hit him right in the head.
Golden Skakdi, new world,
New thoughts to turn and whirl.

We didn’t start the fire,
But it keeps burning,
Our thoughts keep turning,
We didn’t start the fire,
We didn’t light it,
But we tried to ride it.

We didn’t start the fire,
But it keeps burning,
Our thoughts keep turning,
We didn’t start the fire,
But it burns on and on, 
On and on and on…

I've got no strings, to hold me down

To make me fret, and make me frown

I had strings, but now I'm free

There are no strings on me

Awesome remake. That's personally one of my favorite songs by Billy Joel; good summary of Bionicle throughout the years. I've considered doing this very idea, but never went through with it because I'd be horrible at rewriting. :P However, you, on the other hand, did it quite well. Each stanza was more interesting with your descriptions of the years. It fit exactly with the beat of the song, which made it even better. Great job, keep it up. You need to try your hand at some actual story-writing - you have some great potential. ;)

On the day the wall came down / They threw the locks onto the ground
And with glasses high / We raised a cry / For freedom had arrived
 
On the day the wall came down / The ship of fools had finally run aground
Promises lit up the night / Like paper doves in flight
 
I dreamed you had left my side / No warmth, not even pride remained
And even though you needed me / It was clear that I could not do a thing for you
 
Now life devalues day by day / As friends and neighbors turn away
And there's a change that even with regret / Cannot be undone
 
Now frontiers shift like desert sands / While nations wash their bloodied hands
Of loyalty, of history / In shades of grey
 
I woke to the sound of drums / The music played, the morning sun streamed in
I turned and I looked at you / And all but the bitter residues slipped away
 
slipped away...

You can see this topic for more of my awesome story-style works. And thanks for the praise. :-)

This is wonderful. I actually sang this while reading it, and it gave me quite a rush. Nice way of sumerizng each year, sumerizing the main cast and characters but still fitting the songs beat. I will have to look at your other songs.
