Nowadays I don't sign autographs (no more)
Nowadays nobody's wanting that (no more)
Now I'm paying bills (yeah), work a 9 to 5 (yeah)
I have come to terms with my average life (yeah, yeah)


v1.
Used to move the fire mixtapes out the backpack
At the con meeting new friends from the aim chat
Cell phone dumb but the texts let us track that
Buddy with DSLR took a sec to snap that
Used to see that anime life on the nightly
Con to the next one chatting via skype we
Never thought it'd end, but more growing up did
Thought we had it all solved, but actually we were kids

Keystyles like this used to go in the netbook
Used to gawk at cons at bishoujo in the wetlook
Used to dream about reading doujin at a maid cafe
Now they'll bury me in Akiba once I pass away
Used to walk alone, now a million run in front of me
All so independent, yeah not one's the son of me
Holla to the nakama and midnight society
Came up after me, but y'all made it reality


v2.
Now I'm making decent money writing these web sockets
I'm the big time SDE...
And you should hear me talking to the co-op interns
And listen what they say to me...
Used to write reviews full of crazy details
Now all I do is fight old code that won't scale
Like to switch frameworks but I lack the authority
So bugs swarm while I build my seniority

Putting on pounds from bluetooth vending machines
Vacation days gotta accrue, so I'm pending a dream
What's a room with a view out in the Dotonburi
When I know my return will be a sullen hurry
Everything collected on a shelf put away
Never rewatched, left alone to decay
Removed once but now everything is boxed,
Memory erased, ethereal and lost
