While going through some old writing of mine, I came across a ton of unposted filks. In almost all of those cases, you guys are the fortunate party. However, I found this filk of "Moonage Daydream" from an abandoned project written in early 2007, and thought it's probably good enough to go ahead and post (with a few minor changes).

I remember also partially completing "Starman" as a companion to this, but unfortunately that seems to be lost.

Tokyo Nightmare
With apologies to David Bowie

I'm a failing artist, I'm a gaijin gamer runnin' away
I'm a stranded tourist, I'll find my way through shoujo games
Read some girls' books, you're givin' me those Japanese words
And I'm stumblin' like an anime nerd

Keep your schoolgirl eyes off me, babe
Take your plaid-skirts from my mind
Keep your flat chest off of mine, girl
Freak out in a Tokyo nightmare, oh yeah!

Don't steal it schoolgirl, give that bookbag to me
My book of sad sketches is such a worthless thing to keep
Leave me, schoolgirl, leave me here to whine and moan
Let me keep myself alone

Keep your schoolgirl eyes off me, babe
Take your plaid-skirts from my mind
Keep your flat chest off of mine, girl
Freak out in a Tokyo nightmare, oh yeah!

Keep your schoolgirl eyes off me...

Oh why?
No wai!
Kawaii!
