I know no one's heard this song, but I don't really care about that. This is my chance to finally expose this place to some good musi--er.. I mean, some different music. Haha.. yeah.. that's it.. ^_^;;

Comparing the lyrics, it doesn't scan properly all the time but, if you've heard the song and know how Thom Yorke sings, then it all flows relatively well. I don't filk based on syllables, I filk based on what fits into the music.

That being said, insert a little Piro Complex and we're ready to go.

<hr/>Alone
A filk of "Let Down" by Radiohead

Classmates, passersby, those gaijin
Staring and gossiping
Pushing me to the edge
Making me feel empty
Isolation soothes me, hides me from their harshness
But even that helps little, I need someone

[Chorus]
All of the faces mocking
Tears fall so freely now
All of the faces mocking


Hopes dashed, hurts so much my
Heart aches, pain inside me
Learning that the people
Only want to hurt you

Some day I'll no longer doubt you
I'll see you as a real girl
So innocent and caring
So innocent and...

(Chorus)

Alone again
Alone again
Alone again

Tell me, tell me who you are and
Tell me who you are and
I promise that I'll
Believe, swear to you
That one day...
I'll no longer doubt you
I'll see you as a real girl
So innocent and caring
So innocent and...

(Chorus)

<hr/>Let Down
Radiohead

Transport, motorways and tramlines
Starting and then stopping
Taking off and landing
The emptiest of feelings
Disappointed people clinging on to bottles
And when it comes it's so so disappointing

[Chorus]
Let down and hanging around
Crushed like a bug in the ground
Let down and hanging around

Shell smashed, juices flowing
Wings twitch, legs are going
Don't get sentimental
It always ends up drivel

One day I'm going to grow wings
A chemical reaction
Hysterical and useless
Hysterical and ...

(Chorus)

Let down again
Let down again
Let down again

You know, you know where you are with
You know where you are with
Floor collapsing
Floating, bouncing back
And one day....
I am going to grow wings
A chemical reaction
Hysterical and useless
Hysterical and...

(Chorus)
