    video killed too-deadly-to-spar (a draft)

    i saw you on the front page back in '92
    lying awake, intent on being just like you
    if i was young, it didn't stop me wanting to

    oh-a-oh

    they took the credit for your kata-thology
    registered your hands for being so deadly
    and now i understand the profits you can see

    oh-a-oh

    i met those children

    oh-a-oh

    what did you TELL them?

    pictures taken, broke your heart

    oh-a-oh-oh-oh

    and now we meet in an abandoned studio
    we hear the theme song and it seems so long ago
    and you remember, the kata used to go...

    oh-a-oh

    you were the first one

    oh-a-oh

    you were the last one

    in my mind, and in the bar
    we can't crosstrain, we've gone too far

    oh-a-oh-oh-oh

    pictures taken, broke your heart
    put the blame on no holds barred...

    you are too deadly to spar

    yeah, it's been a slow morning. i've had this in my head for a year or two, finally wrote it down. my personal criticism (other than the incredible silliness of it all) is that it may cover too much ground.

    edit: for those evidently too young to get the reference:

    This sounds like "you know my name" by Chris Cornell, aspecialy at the end.

    I was a little shocked. Sure, he changed sides quickly, but I guess even a dog can realize it has more in common with the wolf than with the shephard.

    I give him the names of some BJJ schools in the area, and we go our separate ways.

      Do you live in some remote/isolated locale? Otherwise, I suppose you spend alot of time in your head, so to speak.
      Many things we do naturally become difficult only when we try to make them intellectual subjects. It is possible to know so much about a subject that you become totally ignorant.

            "Never believe that anti-Semites are completely unaware of the absurdity of their replies. They know that their remarks are frivolous, open to challenge. But they are amusing themselves, for it is their adversary who is obliged to use words responsibly, since he believes in words. The anti-Semites have the right to play. They even like to play with discourse for, by giving ridiculous reasons, they discredit the seriousness of their interlocutors. They delight in acting in bad faith, since they seek not to persuade by sound argument but to intimidate and disconcert. If you press them too closely, they will abruptly fall silent, loftily indicating by some phrase that the time for argument is past."

              You can pull this off with the approritate clips of pple from said deadly arts showing their deadly skill then a clip of fights showing pple of the style getting beaten.

                      I found it clever - perhaps a bit more direct on what you're satiring if you can fit it into the rhythm and rhyme

                            I've said it before and I'll say it once more...it can't be called "illness" if it provides an advantage! Maladjusted tendency perhaps.....
