This was orignally produced for the Erika Conspiracy...er...Erika Project, which pretty much consists of KaMu and smurd and li'l ol' me. It was KaMu who pointed out that it fits the current story arc particularly well, so I'm posting it now. Hope y'all enjoy it.

I'm Just An Actress (In An Animé Show)

I'm just a-hiding in a game-lovers' store,
Ducking so many people, and I'm trying to be free,
Back when my voice gave all those characters life,
I was too many people, and none of them me.

And if you think that I'm the only woman for you,
And you want to know the meaning of love, don't ask me,
I'm just an actress in an animé show.

A thousand meanings can be drawn from one glance,
Yet not one of them real, they're just fantasy dreams.
A thousand roles can lead down so many paths,
If the end is illusion, then what good would they be?

And if you think this world of yours revolves around me,
And you're coming here to make your plea, don't tell me,
I'm just an actress in an animé show.

I just can't understand
Worship from otaku for idoru
Who are only deluding themselves,
And if you see the broken
Bird inside the girl behind the
Microphone, don't stare too hard at her.

I'm just a-hiding in a game-lovers' store,
Ducking so many people, and I'm trying to be free,
And still I'm wearing all these costumes and props,
Can't I ever let go, is something wrong with me?

And if you think that I'm the only woman for you,
And you want to know the meaning of love, don't ask me,
I'm just an actress in an animé show.

I just can't understand
Worship from otaku for idoru
Who are only deluding themselves,
And if you see the broken
Bird inside the girl behind the
Microphone, don't stare too hard at me.

Animé is travelling all across our world,
Reaching so many people far across the seas,
I'm just an actress in an animé show,
We're just the actresses in animé shows,
I'm just an actress in an animé show...

I'm Just A Singer (In A Rock And Roll Band)
The Moody Blues


I'm just a wandering on the face of this earth
Meeting so many people who are trying to be free,
And while I'm traveling I hear so many words,
Language barriers broken, now we've found the key,

And if you want the wind of change to blow about you
And you're the only other person to know, don't tell me
I'm just a singer in a rock and roll band.

A thousand pictures can be drawn from one word,
Only who is the artist we got to agree,
A thousand miles can lead so many ways,
Just to know who is driving, what a help it would be.

So if you want this world of yours to turn about you,
And you can see exactly what to do, please tell me
I'm just a singer in a rock and roll band.

How can we understand
Riots by the people for the people
Who are only destroying themselves
And when you see a frightened
Person who is frightened by the
People who are scorching this earth.

I'm just a wandering on the face of this earth
Meeting so many people who are trying to be free,
And while I'm traveling I hear so many words,
Language barriers broken, now we've found the key.

And if you want the wind of change to blow about you,
And you're the only other person to know, don't tell me,
I'm just a singer in a rock and roll band.

How can we understand
Riots by the people for the people
Who are only destroying themselves
And when you see a frightened
Person who is frightened by the
People who are scorching this earth.

Music is the traveller crossing our world
Meeting so many people bridging the seas,
I'm just a singer in a rock and roll band.
We're just the singers in a rock and roll band.
I'm just a singer in a rock and roll band...
