The Lyrics

The Vic Viper, the ship from Gradius, laments about its hard job. Also, this is sort of an unofficial commemoration of the lontest-running name in shooters.
Easter Island heads
Try to shoot at me
They all want me dead
That's something they won't see

I'm more than some ship...That stars in a game
More than some pretty craft that shoots a brain
It's not easy to be me

Sometimes I could cry
But I can't shed tears
Find some way to lie
About the Options that help me

I know it's absurd...especially from me
Even starships have a way to bleed
My shields are like tap defeats me
Even ships have weaknesses, you see
It's not easy to be me

Destroy the Big Core...not new to me
It's all extended play tonight
Need more quarters...or, uhh, something...

Always ply the skies
Lost count of the years
Became some legend guy
'Round the time of game 3

There's always some boss that I have to go beat
Looking to get some, to get a peice of me
Always some boss that I have to go beat
So, I need capsules that empower me
Empower me
Power me
Yeah, power up me
Power up me

I'm only a ship
Whose name starts with a "V"
I'm only a ship
A break's what I need

I'm only a ship
Whose name starts with a "V"
And it's not easy, hmmm, hmmm, hmmm...

Its not easy to be me

Looks very good. DKTOS, and I don't know much alot about Gradius. PS- I seen your question on my Mrs. Butterworth parody(I just checked that song today), the one about me writing parodies while drunk. I left a response to it. Are you registered on the message boards?

Yeah, since this site doesn't have section for original song lyrics, I could post the song for you on a message board thread. I don't think this site has an original song section, I've never seen one.
