For Zircon...

Black Sabbath, Iron Man

Has he lost his mind?
Can he see or is he blind?
Can he walk at all,
Or if he moves will he fall?
Is he alive or dead?
Has he thoughts within his head?
We'll just pass him there
Why should we even care?

He was turned to steel
In the great magnetic field
Where he traveled time
For the future of mankind

Nobody wants him
He just stares at the world
Planning his vengeance
That he will soon unfold

Now the time is here
For Iron Man to spread fear
Vengeance from the grave
Kills the people he once saved

Nobody wants him
They just turn their heads
Nobody helps him
Now he has his revenge

Heavy boots of lead
Fills his victims full of dread
Running as fast as they can
Iron Man lives again!

Many primitive [*] peoples believe that if you eat a person's brains, you acquire his knowledge.

[*] Footnote: A primitive person is one who doesn't drive a car. Cars are among the greatest causes of premature deaths of lizards in Arizona.

You'd have liked my father. He was a sweet guy. He died when I was eighteen, but when I was a little kid we used to sit together and I'd read my comic books to him. I don't think he cared much about the silly stuff in comics -- but he loved me and took pleasure in my reading aloud to him. I miss my dad.

If you have a moment, if your heart is big enough to spare a moment, give a nod and a smile for all the good ones who spent their lives making great art and small art and even entertainment. When they're gone, there's only one way to tell them you miss them... Send them a moment of kind thought right now. The beam will pick it up and carry it across the stars to them where they wait. I've been sending good wishes to the ones I miss all evening. Now it's your turn.

Y'see, I figure I've got two choices at my stage. I can try to make my world grow bigger, or I can let it get smaller -- and if I don't do the one then the other's gonna happen in time...

"What we call the beginning is often the end
And to make an end is to make a beginning."
