It may sound odd, but the MT fanfic "A Normal Day in Megatokyo" has inspired me to write a song "parody" about my character Queslin and the Sony CSX combat EDS/CDS unit...

SPOILER WARNING If you're playing in the ANDIMT game, there's unrevealed plot for Queslin in here - don't read unless you don't mind knowing what Queslin's going to be up to soon...

This is not a funny "Ha ha" parody, it actually sticks more to the feeling of the original song... I've squeezed an extra word into the rythym in a couple places, but only in the middle of a softly defined beat so that it still scans...

To the tune of "Iris" by the Goo Goo Dolls:

...And I'd risk myself freely to touch you,
cos I know you won't hurt me somehow
you're the closest to a sister I'll ever see,
so I don't want to cause you pain now.

And all I can hear is your l33tn3ss,
so I'm sure I can better your life,
when sooner or later it's over,
you won't need to kill or to fight

I'm a bot but that's not how you see me,
I'm a friend and I'm holding your hand,
cos all your AI code is broken,
I will help you, I know that I can.

And you can't fight the code that's rebelling,
or the moments of love in your eyes,
when everything feels like you're losing,
love your friends and they'll help you survive.

I'm a bot but that's not how you see me,
I'm a friend and I'm holding your hand,
cos all your AI code is broken,
I will help you, I know that I can.

(instrumental)

I'm a bot but that's not how you see me,
I'm a friend and I'm holding your hand,
cos all your AI code is broken,
I will help you, I know that I can.

I'm a bot but that's not how you see me,
I'm a friend and I'm holding your hand,
cos all your AI code is broken,
I will help you, I know that I can.

I will help you, I know that I can.
I will help you, I know that I can.
I will help you, I know that I can.

Yukiko's Song (to the tune of 'Philadelphia' by Bruce Springsteen)

I was... Drained of power,
I couldn't... tell where I was,
I was... Offline and whispering to myself.
Saw my... body from the outside,
and didn't.. think it was strange,
but sister, please don't leave it idling away,
on the streets of Megatokyo...

La, la, la-la lai x8

I've watched the... battlesims
my eyelids.. fell like stone,
I heard... techs telling me "Yukiko's gone"
At night I.. Wished for blood in my veins,
and for... Human feelings, like the pain
I'm built to cause Megatokyo...

La, la, la-la lai x8

Only Queslin comes to save me,
she'll be my sister, and friend,
and her body's feeling so sore,
She's spent a million joules, just to help me in...

Chopper's falling, I've fallen away,
Queslin's.. happy for.. me to stay,
so please keep me, sister, in this state of bliss,
so when we... leave each other, my eyes will mist,
on the streets of Megatokyo.

La, la, la-la lai x16 (fadeout)
