Ping-chan's prayer
Filk of "Dante's Prayer" by Loreena McKennitt, The Book of Secrets
----------------------------
When the darkness came upon me,
and all my circuitry went down,
When my closest friends leave me by myself,
In troubled dreams I ran.

I cannot yet begin to live a normal life,
Though I've learned to play along,
When acceptance of me seemed forever lost,
you showed me friendship unlooked-for.

Chorus:
Meet my eyes when I'm speaking,
Hear my words, try to see...
Though you know I'm not human,
please believe in me.


When lack of knowledge oppressed me,
and my need for cherishing grew strong,
From the deepest depths of your subconscious,
you saw my lack, and made me strong.

Meet my eyes when I'm speaking,
Hear my words, try to see...
Though you know I'm not human,
please believe in me.


Though we spend our days together,
How fragile is my heart.
Please help this metal frame spread it wings,
to touch the face of the stars.

Help breath life into this feeble frame,
help me become the girl I long to be,
take my programmed hopes, heed my helpless tears,
I wish to rise up, I wish to be.

Meet my eyes when I'm speaking,
Oh, my friends, believe in me.
Though you know I'm not human,
I, too, strive to be.
I, too, strive to be.
