Types: Filk, Ping, Serious
There's a somewhat rough but pretty prose sketch of Miho with Ping over in the CW forum, that got me thinking along the lines of a filk; and perhaps e-Monk's cool filk of "Mysterious Ways" put U2 into my mind. The result follows, but be warned - it's kind of a downer.

Ping is Mindless

Ping is mindless,
What is wrong with me?
She can't warm the space
Inside me;
Take her back,
Ping is mindless.

In a black box
In a corporate lab,
All that she is,
All she has,
Moves in circuits,
A game, a circus,
Ping is mindless.

Ping is clockworks,
And cold steel;
Circuits too cold to feel.
See the window?
There's no lamp glow.
Ping is mindless.

Ping is mindless,
What is wrong with me?
She can't warm the space
Inside me;
Oh my heart!
Ping is mindless.

A little hope,
With no reason,
Does she
Have real feeling?
Lonely...such desperation,
This almost makes sense.

Ping is lovely,
But just a shell,
No soul to love,
No faith to sell,
Oh I'm wishing,
She's not
Mindless.

Ping is mindless,
What is wrong with me?
She can't warm the space
Inside me;
Oh my puppet,
Ping is mindless.

(apologies to U2)

Love is Blindness
U2


Love is blindness
I don't want to see
Won't you wrap the night
Around me
Take my heart
Love is blindness

In a parked car
In a crowded street
You see your love
Made complete
Thread is ripping
The knot is slipping
Love is blindness

Love is clockworks
And cold steel
Fingers too numb to feel
Squeeze the handle
Blow out the candle
Love is blindness

Love is blindness
I don't want to see
Won't you wrap the night
Around me
Oh my love
Blindness

A little death
Without mourning
No call
And no warning
Baby...a dangerous idea
That almost makes sense

Love is drowning
In a deep well
All the secrets
And no one to tell
Take the money
Honey
Blindness

Love is blindness
I don't want to see
Won't you wrap the night
Around me
Oh my love
Blindness.
