Hikikomori
by Karl Olson

v1.
Now Here's a little self-concerned
boring story
About how I've become 100 percent
hikikomori?
An unmotivated shut in
Scorning everyone who butts in
Closing off every line
of open discussion

Lost in a manga made
psuedo reality
Where welcome to the NHK
Is my specialty
Surfing every image board
On the surface of globe
Moe girls w/ glasses
Looking like they're Lisa Loeb

Strung out on energy drinks
Till I can't think/breath stinks
Sliding down the slope
Like I'm skating down an ice rink
Living in isolation
Devastation/in a nation
Where I oughtta be tryin to make to the most
of this great creation

I was born in to hit America
Wait does nobody care?
If this tale isn't scarin' ya
You better beware
This tale's not for the weak
Cause I redefine freak
Atleast in my mind/cause I can't find
The strength that I seek

ch.
I'm alone (I'm alone)
Hikikomori's the lifestyle
You thought otaku was bad
That stuff is just for a child

I'm alone (I'm alone)
Hikikomori's the lifestyle
You thought otaku was bad
Come live this life for a while

I'm alone (I'm alone)
Hikikomori's the lifestyle
You thought otaku was bad
That stuff is just for a child

I'm alone (I'm alone)
Hikikomori's the lifestyle
You thought otaku was bad
Just waking up is a trial

v2.
Soul crushed and impacted
in this urban landscape
I can't escape/ from the fate
I have brought on to my plate
I've got no abilities
Lost my facilities
To find a reason
to utilize my known agility

I am the morning DJ
on my podcast
which had like 2 listeners
at the count I made last
And My Blog Cleared
2000 Visitors the other day
Though I guess the spiders
Could stack the counter that way

I've been respected by my peers
In nerdcore and drum and bass
So when that high school reunion happens
I'll like the look on there face
When I say I've been featured
on Canadian TV
Though I'll negect to note my content
Was used for free

I'll mention my press status
I'll mention my home business
I'll build a psuedo-latice
But I won't bare false witness
I'll simply ignore the facts
that are inconvenient to me
And Continue down this path
Of duplicity

v3.
I run my computer all the time
24/7
Just to get all of my torrents
dropped and seedin
It's only way I can find
the fansubs I'm needin
I'll kill time by readin
doujinshi by bleedman

Cause it's so kawaii
It almost makes me cry
It's nice to feel emotion
Even if it's a lie
is there a conspiracy
To make us all lonely nerds?
My retort to those reports
Would be a waste of words

Gainax and Gonzo
Diddy and J-LO
Drop lines that we toe
Till we just don't know
The boundaries and the basis
And our reason to live
This seclusion/these delusions
Aren't something that I forgive

It's pointless/But not hopeless
Some one think of the kids
Don't get sucked in to this world
Through deceptions and fibs
The glamor and the glory
Of these get girl stories
Destroy us deep inside
Via immoral allegories
