The Idol's Departure
by Eli Young (Elyscape)
Apologies to Pink Floyd

Kami, Kami, what's it all about?
Trying to keep these nuissance fanboys far away
They push each other just to see me pout
Oh, God, that isn't me, I must shout out

I can't believe that all this time
I have been living a complete lie
Though I never fathomed it, my cynicism was
Just a way to stay alive

Sweetheart, sweetheart, are you fast asleep? Good.
That's the only time that I can really learn 'bout you
And there is something you've kept away
Away from me, and I think that your love for me was simply fake

When he turned out to be lying [1]
My feelings broke down and I couldn't stop crying [1]
I found that I was much the same and I had to change

But burning in my heart
The love I felt smolders on
With the echoes of my end on the intercom

[1] Pronounce this as one syllable, for example, lying like "laing" instead of "lai-ing".

The Hero's Return
by Pink Floyd

Jesus, Jesus, what's it all about?
Trying to clout these little ingrates into shape
When I was their age all the lights went out
There was no time to whine and mope about

And even now part of me flies
Over Dresden at Angels-One-Five
Though they'll never fathom it, behind my sarcasm
Desperate memories lie

Sweetheart, sweetheart, are you fast asleep? Good.
That's the only time that I can really speak to you
And there is something I've locked away
A memory that is too painful to withstand the light of day

When we came back from the war
The banners and flags hung on everyone's door
We danced and we sang in the street and the church bells rang

But burning in my heart
The memory smoulders on
Of the gunner's dying words on the intercom
