You've heard of Alexander Hamilton.

But have you heard of the official Cosmere version?

Introducing to you, Silverlights #1 most popular play, endorsed by Cosmere Incorporated...


Song 1 (Kelsier, Survivor):


How does a bastard, orphan, son of a whore and a nobleman, dropped in the middle of a forgotten 
spot in Luthadel by Providence impoverished in squalor
grow up to be a hero and a survivor?

The Ten boxing, godlike father without a father
got a lot farther by working a lot harder
by being a lot smarter by being a martyr
by forty, they placed him in charge of a religion charter

And every day while Skaa were being slaughtered and carted away 
across the maw he struggled and kept his guard up
Inside he was longing for something to be a part of 
the brother was ready to beg steal borrow or barter

Then a inquisitor came and devastation rained 
our man saw his future drip-dripping down the drain 
put a dagger to a man's temple connected it to his brain
and he wrote his first refrain a testament to his pain

Well the word got around they said this kid is insane man
took up a collection just to join him to the crews
Get your stealing don't forget from whence you came. And the world is gonna know your name. 
What's ya name, man?

Kelsier, Survivor.
My name is Kelsier, Survivor.
And there's a million things I haven't done. 
But just you wait, just you, wait.

When he was 10, his father shot
Life naught, moneyless
Two years later, see Kel and his brother, homeless
Half-dead, sittin' in their own sick, the scent thick
And they got better but his boxings went quick

Moved in with a crew, the crew killed for thieving.
Left him with nothin' but ruined pride
Somethin' new inside
A voice saying Kel, you can't live like livestock
He started stealin' and swindlin' every nobleman on the block

There would've been nothin' left to do
For someone less astute
He would've been dead and destitute
Without a cent of restitution
Started workin', stealin' for his late mother's crew boss
Tradin' gemstones and rum and other things he can't afford

Scannin' for every trick he can get his hands on
Plannin' for the future, see him now as he goes on
The back of a cart headed for a new prison
In the Pits you can remake yourself (x4) In the the Pits (The Pits)) Just you wait (x3)

Kelsier, Survivor
We are waiting in the ash for you
You could never back down
You never learned to take your time
Kelsier, Survivor
The empire sings for you
Do they know what you overcame
Do they know you control your name
The world will never be the same, oh

The cart has reached Hathsin now
See if you can spot him
Another prisoner comin' up from the bottom
His enemies destroyed his mind, Luthadel forgot him

We, fought with him
Me, I died for him
Me, I trusted him
Me, I loved him
And me, I'm the damnation fool that stabbed him
There's a million things I haven't done, but just you wait
Whats ya name man? 

This first song was really fun to work with!

I will continue the project, if you guys like it. It will be across multiple worlds and stories in the Cosmere, hence the "worldhopper" in Alexander Woldhopper.

I particularly had trouble with part five. I still don't like it, but I can't figure out how to fix it.
