January. Not exactly the most pleasant of months in most places, and Megatokyo was no exception. So to deal with the chilling cold outside, many were finding their own ways to stay warm. One popular method was to cram as many people into a single building as possible, as was the scene at the Cave of Evil.

Durden, who was running the bar, hadn't seen it this full in quite a while. "Hmm…I didn't know karaoke was this popular," he mused quietly before being flagged down to serve a new customer. "Good for business though…"

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"Now, you did practice the lyrics, didn't you?"

"Yeees."

"Good. I don't want you making me look like a fool up there."

"I won't. But I don't understand why you would be holding a karaoke contest where the contestants make up their own lyrics, Miho."

"Well, I think it will be fun, don't you, Piro?"

"I would if we didn't have to dress up…"

"Complain one more time and I'll tell Largo what you're doing. Fraternizing with the "enemy". You won't be able to get him off of you… Or I could just tell him how you were siphoning all his bandwidth last week. You remember how mad he got over the "unknown zombie" that was making him lag in Quake3, don't you?"

"......"

"That's what I thought, now let's go. We're on in five."

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"Yo, bartender. Give me another ale over here!"

Durden was running hurriedly back and forth, trying to keep up with the high demand on the other end of the bar. Suddenly, the lights dimmed and several lights were focused on the stage.

"Ah, it seems the karaoke is about to st… what the…Niho and Pirogoeth?!" Durden stared, his mouth slightly open in shock, as Miho and Piro came on stage dressed as their Endgames characters. He was quickly forced to abandon this pose to serve the next customer, but he'd definitely be keeping most of his attention on the stage for this performance.

Rivalry
A filk of Inside Out
Apologies to Eve 6
By Arram

I would control their minds
I would take all their lives
But the strength he has would end me every time
Destroyed my love, knife in her small glove, found nothing but love in nothing
Want to take my revenge oh he will see then
Watch him beg me to save her from my oblivion
Very soon I'll be through with you

He burn burns like a vile demon, chalk white but never frail
We had been fighting tooth and nail
The hard steel of the blade was helpful
So cold and never dull
He wanted to control it all
I know now that he still chases
I am scared 'cause "he's" female
My head is light but I won't fail

I would control their minds
I would take all their lives
But the strength he has would end me every time
She had destroyed my love, knife in her small glove, found nothing but love in nothing
Want to take my revenge oh he will see then
Watch him beg me to save her from my oblivion
Very soon I'll be through with you

Japan is where I now stay, but I can't stay where I want
I'm a pathetic artist fool
I'm also Pirogoeth,
Knowing I again must fend myself from all the motives in her head

I would control their minds
I would take all their lives
But the strength he has would end me every time
She had destroyed my love, knife in her small glove, found nothing but love in nothing
Want to take my revenge oh he will see then
Watch him beg me to save her from my oblivion
Very soon I'll be through with you
Very soon…

I alone am the one you know you can't beat take heed quench your ego
Make your time when your eyes close think when you get close never think I'm like most
I alone am the one you can't beat I know you know you can't beat me
Make your time when your eyes close, I am never like most

I would control their minds
I would take all their lives
But the strength he has would end me every time
Destroyed my love, knife in her small glove, found nothing but love in nothing
Want to take my revenge oh he will see then
Watch him beg me to save her from my oblivion
Very soon I'll be through now I'm through with you

Through with you
Very soon I'll be through with you

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"Now that wasn't so bad, was it?" Miho managed to say over the deafening cheers eminating from the crowd before them.

Inside Out
By Eve 6

I would swallow my pride
I would choke on the rhines
But the lack thereof would leave me empty inside
Swallow my doubt turn it inside out find nothing but faith in nothing
Want to put my tender heart in a blender
Watch it spin 'round to a beautiful oblivion
Rendezvous then I'm through with you

I burn burn like a wicker cabinet chalk white and oh so frail
I see our time had gotten stale
The tick tock of the clock is painful
All sane and logical
I want to tear it off the wall
I hear words in clips and phrases
I think sick like ginger ale
My stomach turns and I exhale

I would swallow my pride
I would choke on the rhines
But the lack thereof would leave me empty inside
I would swallow my doubt turn it inside out find nothing but faith in nothing
Want to put my tender heart in a blender
Watch it spin around to a beautiful oblivion
Rendezvous then I'm through with you

SoCal is where my mind states but it's not my state of mind
I'm not as ugly sad as you
Or am I origami
Folded up and just pretend demented as the motives in your head

I would swallow my pride
I would choke on the rhines
But the lack thereof would leave me empty inside
I would swallow my doubt turn it inside out find nothing but faith in nothing
Want to put my tender heart in a blender
Watch it spin around to a beautiful oblivion
Rendezvous then I'm through with you

I alone am the one you don't know you need take heed feed your ego
Make me blind when your eyes close sink when you get close tie me to the bedpost

I alone am the one you don't know you need you don't know you need me. Make me
blind when your eyes close, tie me to the bedpost

I would swallow my pride
I would choke on the rhines
But the lack thereof would leave me empty inside
Swallow my doubt turn it inside out find nothing but faith in nothing
Want to put my tender heart in a blender
Watch it spin around to a beautiful oblivion
Rendezvous then I'm through now I'm through with you

Through with you
Rendezvous then I'm through with you
