As has been said in other filk threads, it's best to choose a song not too close to what you're writing about. For example, what song can we see Ed almost certainly not singing? How about "Bridge Over Troubled Water" (which I'm also shocked to see has never been filked before)? The tone is actually dangerously close to what most people would think of for this scene, which is why I thought of it originally, but with Ed singing it, even the lines that stay the same take on a sinister tone.

Supporting Fire
Sung by Ed, in his prettiest bishie voice

When you play a lonely game
When bows fall from your hair
I'll be down that lane
Just out of sight
When zombies roam
And foes just can't be drowned
Like a gun with supporting fire
I will lay me down
Like a gun with supporting fire
I will lay me down

With your ribbons out
When you start to change
When evening starts to snow
I will comfort you
Like Sony's crow
When dishes break
And grrlies feel so sad
Like a gun with supporting fire
I will lay me down
Like a gun with supporting fire
I will lay me down

Shattered shadow girl
Shattered, lie
Your time has come to fry
All your bows are blown away
See how they fly
When you need a friend
I'll shadow right behind
Like a gun with supporting fire
I will ease your mind
Like a gun with supporting fire
I will ease your mi~ind
