now this is a song about when your worst enemy becomes your best friend, comrade, and lover, and then screws up his life a lot and becomes an enemy again, and he drives himself into a kind of ruin in the absence of you, to the point where you feel a little petty joy in seeing it but mostly you wish it didnt have to come to this. its about char aznable


shrapnel beached on my doorstep
what else could it be?
last saw him turn up on main st
he didnt know it was me

it'll take me a life to recover
but the wound will forever be fresh
i shake as i climb down the steps
i gave him my best

the banner was glowing bright with the blood
of the medals he'd won
his gold hair was streaked in eternal defeat
i should phone someone

i'd fought him for all i believed in
is judas forgiven in death?
i grip the red scraps in my fist
and i hold my breath

the ash in the wind is my birthright
a comet's tail lighting the dark
tells me that he's finally home
in his sea of stars
