  • Upstagement (Karaoke night!)


    ::A figure walked up to the front of the bar. It was karaoke night, and no one had broken the ice yet. He was dressed head to toe in dark robes, which should have given his identity away emediatley. Mephisto grabbed the mic, and waved Tempist up from the crowd. They had aggreed to do one song together, and then they could do stuff on their own as the night went on. The music began, and Mephisto started to sing a song that few knew by a band that everyone knew. ::

    Hello, My name is Johnny! Well HELLO! My Name is JOHNNY!
    I like to exploit myself, and I like to complain in vain.
    (Sweet little boy) Johnny! (Sweet little boy) JOHNNY!

    Let me show you the way to mine, let me show you the way to mine. Let me help you explain your mind, when I help you explain, your mine!

    ::Mephisto stoped singing, and passed the mic to Tempist, who sang in a similar fashon, but sounding much more like the origional singer::

    Hello! My name is Roger! Well HELLO! My name is ROGER!
    I like to proclaim myself a god, and likely ordain myself...
    (Sweet little boy) Roger! (Sweet little boy) ROGER!

    Let me show you the way to mine, let me show you the way to mine. Let me help you explain your mind, when I help you explain, your mine!

    ::Tempist steped back from the mic a little, and Mephisto moved closer, so they could sing into it at the same time. Mephisto was nearly whispering for a few sentences though, in accordance to the song::

    Sweet little boy... Sweet little boy!!!!

    Let me show you the way to mine, let me show you the way to mine. Let me help you explain your mind, when I help you explain, your mine. LET ME SHOW YOU THE WAY TO MINE! LET ME SHOW YOU THE WAY TO MINE! LET ME HELP YOU EXPLAIN YOUR MIND! WHEN I HELP YOU EXPLAIN, YOUR MINE!

    ::The song abbruptly ended, and the two walked off stage, each going to seperate areas of the bar.::

    Tempist walked away from the front, satasfied with their performance, and got himself a drink. He hoped that this night would be eventful...

        *Music. Finally something to set his mind at ease. Snack walked up on stage, picking up the mic while taking a seat on a stool which was already on the stage. Clearing his voice softly, he cued the music.*

        "Crawling in the Dark" by Hoobastank




        I will dedicate
        And sacrifice my every-
        Thing for just a seconds worth
        Of how my story's ending.
        And I wish I could know
        If the directions that I take
        And all the choices that I make
        Won't end up all for nothing.

        Show me what it's for!
        Make me understand it!
        I've been crawling in the dark
        Looking for the answer.
        Is there something more
        Than what I've been handed?
        I've been crawling in the dark
        Looking for the answer.

        Help me carry on.
        Assure me it's ok to
        Use my heart and not my eyes
        To navigate the darkness.
        Will the ending be
        Ever coming suddenly?
        Will I ever get to see
        the ending to my story?

        Show me what it's for!
        Make me understand it!
        I've been crawling in the dark
        Looking for the answer.
        Is there something more
        Than what I've been handed?
        I've been crawling in the dark
        Looking for the answer.

        So when and how will I know?..................

        How much further do I have to go?
        How much longer until I finally know?
        Because I'm looking and I just can't see what's in front of me,
        In front of me!

        Show me what it's for
        Make me understand it
        I've been crawling in the dark
        Looking for the answer.
        Is there something more
        Than what I've been handed?
        I've been crawling in the dark
        Looking for the answer.

        *The music cuts off, and Snack stands and exits stage right.*

          Tempist claped at Snack's performance, and pointed to the sign in the front in response to the question. It said "Karaoke Night! All are welcome!"

            ::Saharia grinned and stepped onto the stage::

            The mouths of envious
            Always find another door
            While at the gates of paradise they beat us down some more
            But our missions set in stone
            Cause the writings on the wall
            I'll scream it from the mountain top
            pride comes before a fall

            So many thoughts to share
            All this energy to give
            Unlike those who hide the truth I tell it like it is
            If the truth will set you free
            I feel sorry for your soul
            Can't you hear the ringing cause for you the bell tolls

            Im a freedom fighter
            No remorse
            Raging on a holy war
            Soon there'll come a day
            When your face to face with me
            Face to face with me

            Cant you hear us coming?
            People marching all around
            Cant you see we're coming?
            Close your eyes its over now
            Cant you ehar us coming?
            The fight has only just begun
            Cant you see we're coming?

            Im a freedom fighter
            No remorse
            Raging on a holy war
            Soon there'll come a day
            When your face to face with me
            face to face with me.

              Clapping for the previous preformers, Lana then took her turn on stage, replacing Saharia's spot. She grinned and chose her song carefully...

              The Trial - Pink Floyd

              Good morning, Worm your honor.
              The crown will plainly show
              The prisoner who now stands before you
              Was caught red-handed showing feelings
              Showing feelings of an almost human nature.
              This will not do.
              Call the schoolmaster!
              I always said he'd come to no good
              In the end your honor.
              If they'd let me have my way I could have
              Flayed him into shape.
              But my hands were tied,
              The bleeding hearts and artists
              Let him get away with murder.
              Let me hammer him today.
              Crazy... toys in the attic I am crazy,
              Truly gone fishing.
              They must have taken my marbles away.
              Crazy, toys in the attic. He is crazy.
              You little @#%$ you're in it now,
              I hope they throw away the key.
              You should have talked to me more often
              Than you did, but no.
              You had to go your own way, have you
              Broken any homes up lately?
              Just five minutes, Worm your honor,
              Him and Me, alone.
              Baaaabe!
              Come to mother baby, let me hold you in my arms.
              M'Lord I never wanted him to get in any trouble.
              Why'd he ever have to leave me?
              Worm, your honor, let me take him home.
              Crazy, over the rainbow, I am crazy,
              Bars in the window.
              There must have been a door there in the wall
              When I came in.
              Crazy, over the rainbow, he is crazy.
              The evidence before the court is incontrovertible
              There's no need for the jury to retire.
              In all my years of judging I have never heard before
              Of someone more deserving of the full penalty of law.
              The way you made them suffer,
              Your exquisite wife and mother,
              Fills me with the urge to defecate!
              Since, my friend, you have revealed your deepest fear
              I sentence you to be exposed before your peers.
              Tear down the wall!

                "... Seems three years
                Though maybe four
                Someone drops dead
                Whom i adore
                You love someone
                There will be grief
                The kiss of death
                Lips of a thief

                Goddamnit

                A dusty stack
                of photographs
                Of times I've cried
                But mostly laughed
                Commit the past
                Into blue flame
                Acrid smoke
                Cowardly shame

                Goddamnit

                At times I'm truly terrified
                Cause dope and booze
                Don't help to hide
                They're used to mask
                A weakling's hurt
                It's just like painting
                Over dirt

                Everyone I love is dead (ha-ha)

                Life's a game I cannot win
                Both good and bad
                Must surely end
                The mirrors
                Always tell the truth
                I love myself
                For hating you ..."

                    Re: Upstagement


                    Xavier smiles and claps for everyone before stepping up onto the stage. "Very good.. but everyone knows I always pick the best songs." He chuckles then starts to sing, his voice somber for the most part.

                    "I had a friend many years ago
                    One tragic night he died
                    The saddest time of my life
                    For weeks and weeks I cried
                    Through the anger and through the tears
                    I've felt his spirit through the years
                    I'd swear, He's watching me
                    Guiding me through hard times

                    I feel it once again
                    It's overwhelming me
                    His spirit's like the wind
                    The angel guarding me
                    Oh, I know, oh, I know
                    He's watching over me
                    Oh, I know, oh, I know
                    He's watching over me

                    We shared dreams like all best friends
                    Blood brothers at the age of ten
                    We lived reckless, he paid the price
                    But why? Why did he have to die?
                    It still hurts me to this day
                    Am I selfish for feeling this way?
                    I know he's an angel now
                    Together we'll be someday

                    I feel it once again
                    It's overwhelming me
                    His spirit's like the wind
                    The angel guarding me
                    Oh, I know, oh, I know
                    He's watching over me
                    Oh, I know, oh, I know
                    He's watching over me"

                        He had always been one for singing, even though he knew his voice wasn't the best in the galaxy. But he decided to give it a shot anyway. He stepped up onto the stage and started singing, his raspy voice filling the confines of the bar.

                        "You are wrong, ****ed and overrated
                        I think I'm gonna be sick and it's your fault
                        This is the end of EVERYTHING
                        You are the end of EVERYTHING
                        I haven't slept since I woke up
                        And found my whole life was a lie, mother****er
                        This is the end of EVERYTHING
                        You are the end of EVERYTHING.

                        Shallow skin, I can paint with pain
                        I mark the trails on my arms with your disdain
                        Everyday is the same - I LOVE YOU HATE
                        But I guess I don't care anymore...
                        Fix my problems with the blade
                        While my eyes turn from blue to gray
                        God, the worst thing happened to me today
                        But I guess I don't care anymore.

                        This is the end of EVERYTHING
                        You are the end of EVERYTHING.

                        My flaws are the only thing left that's pure
                        Can't really live, can't really endure
                        Everything I see reminds me of her
                        God, I wish I didn't care anymore
                        The more I touch the less I feel
                        I'm lying to muself that it's not real.

                        Why is everybody making such a big ****ing deal?
                        I'm never gonna care anymore
                        What the hell am I doing?
                        Is there anyone left in my life?
                        What the **** was I thinking?
                        Anybody want to tell me I'm fine?
                        Where the hell am I going?
                        Do I even need a reason to hide?
                        I am only betrayed
                        I am only conditioned to die.

                        You are wrong, ****ed and overrated
                        I think I'm gonna be sick and it's your fault

                        This is the end of EVERYTHING
                        You are the end of EVERYTHING."

                        His voice and the music faded slowly as he replaced the mic and stepped back to his seat and sat down, awaiting someone else to go up.

                            Claps taking the mic from Magus

                            "Wishing on a dream that seems far off
                            Hoping it will come today
                            Into the starlit night
                            Foolish dreamers turn their gaze
                            Waiting on a shooting star

                            But what if that star is not to come?
                            Will their dreams fade to nothing?
                            When the horizon darkens most
                            We all need to believe there is hope!

                            Is an angel watching closely over me?
                            Can there be a guiding light I've yet to see?
                            I know my heart should guide me but
                            There's a hole within my soul

                            What will fill this emptiness inside of me?
                            Am I to be satisfied without knowing?
                            I wish then for a chance to see,
                            Now all I need
                            (Desperately)
                            Is my star to come?"

                            Goes back into the shadows to watch.

                              The Cure - Strange Attraction

                              It started with a dedication
                              "lost in admiration - happy birthday - I’m forever yours - blossom"
                              fared red inside a tiny book of butterflies
                              I smiled surprised at how when flickered through
                              the wings flew by spelled out my name

                              six months went by the summer lost
                              obsessively the letters dropped into my life
                              the same soft blood smooth flowing hand
                              "please try to understand - I have to see you - have to feel you -
                              tell you all the ways I need you - yours forever in love"

                              Strange attraction spreads its wings
                              it varies but the smallest things
                              you never know how anything will change
                              strange attraction spreads its wings
                              and alters but the smallest things
                              you never know how anything will fade

                              The year grew old incessantly she wrote to me
                              she'd started smoking poetry!
                              I laughed in recognition of a favorite phrase
                              she'd pulled me in...
                              I answered her
                              a Christmas card in sepia
                              arranging when and where
                              and how the two of us should meet...
                              her opening so well prepared
                              a nervous smile
                              I couldn't take my eyes from her
                              she whispered
                              "can I use some of your lipstick?"
                              it was perfect so believable
                              I couldn't help but feel that it was real
                              and kissing crimson fell into her waiting arms

                              Strange attraction spreads its wings
                              it varies but the smallest things
                              you never know how anything will change
                              strange attraction spreads its wings
                              and alters but the smallest things
                              you never know how anything will fade

                              so alone into the cold new year without another word from her
                              I wrote to ask if we could maybe meet again before the spring
                              but weeks went by with no reply until once more my birthday came
                              and with it my surprise but this time nothing was the same...
                              "I’m sorry - blame infatuation - blame imagination
                              I was sure you'd be the one but I was wrong -
                              it seems reality destroys our dreams - I won't forget you blossom"
                              fared red inside a tiny book of old goodbyes...

                              Strange attraction spreads its wings
                              it varies but the smallest things
                              you never know how anything will change

                              you never know how anything will fade
