  • Mood:

Maya's room, at the Miyagawa School

Finally, the computer was set up, the speakers attached, her clothes unpacked, the bed made, her posters on the wall over that bed. She opened the window as wide as it would go and decided, at long last, that it was time for a smoke. After she booted up her computer and started Windows Media Player--and Faith & the Muse began wailing from the speakers on the desk--she unwrapped the cellophane wrapper from a pack of American Spirits, shook one out, and lit it, doing her best to keep the smoke from blowing into the room (just in case her roommate had a major problem with smoking, and besides, who wants their room to smell like an ash tray).

When she was finished with her smoke, she picked up the electric guitar, plugged it into the small amplifier, and began playing and singing along with "Scars Flown Proud"--

We Are The Inheritors: The Evidence of Heaven
Descendants of a Legacy gone but not Forgotten
We Are The Inheritors of the Grand Persuasion
Descendants of its Masquerade Numb but not Defeated

Welcome to the silent war, to the world we never hoped to gain
The great Disguise Wandering between two realms,
One dead the other rarely dwells beyond our eyesLest we be sorely recognized

What little good intentions seem
But obviate the bloom of self esteem We'll save our prayers
Inured to wounds from bleeding minds Where Wisdom dares not mix with Time Never Fear
They'll age they'll change they'll disappear

In every dance no steps are placed And every path mistakes are made
And if all paths lead but to the grave Then let us dance along our way

Gliding from room to room all cast in celebrated gloom With no where yet to rest our head
Waiting for a door to open from within and bring us home Lest we possess our souls again

You Are A Wonder And I Will Sing Your Praise
