  • Let There Be Waves T-shirt
    T-Shirt/Apparel

    As seen at BitSummit MMXIV at Kyoto, worn by Saori Kobayashi (of Panzer Dragoon) and Yumiko Takahashi (of Suikoden). This is a very limited t-shirt drawn beautifully by the talented Simon Ålander. The artwork was printed with pigmented discharge ink on dark grey heather garments.

lyrics

Throw it out
It's lost its shape
In need of repair
No time for escape
But leave no doubt
There's a light to be seen
It's coming over the hill
Somebody screamed

We never knew
And we still don't; is it true?
Wish I were you
Somebody screamed, ‘I wish I were you’

So hear me out
Don't mean to sound cute
But sometimes yer drunk, boy
And sometimes you puke
But leave no doubt
There's a light to be seen
It's coming over the hill
Somebody screamed

We never knew
And we still don't; is it true?
Wish I were you
Somebody scream, ‘I wish I were you’
If we do nothing, then there's nothing left to do
Wish I were you
Somebody scream ‘I wish I were you’

Somebody scream, ‘In my time of lying’

You're talking to a ghost
The ghosts are all around
They're everywhere you look
The ghosts they write the book
Somebody screamed, "You're talking to a ghost, who says ‘I wish I were you’"
Cause then I'd get back
