Veteran of the Hugo Wars ...

VETERAN OF THE HUGO WARS

You see me now a veteran of a thousand Hugo wars
I've been living on the edge so long, where the blogs of limbo roar
And I've read so many blog posts, I can barely see
All the scars are on the inside
I'm not sure that there's anything left of me

Don't let these posts go on, it's time we had a break from it
It's time we had some leave
We've been living in the flames
We've been eating up our brains
Oh please, don't let these posts go on.

You ask me why I'm weary, why I can't speak to you
You blame me for my silence, say it's time I bloviate with ten thousand words
Oh the war's still going on, dear, and there's nowhere to go
And there's no end that I know
I can't say if we're ever gonna be free

Don't let these posts go on, it's time we had a break from it
It's time we had some leave
We've been living in the flames
We've been eating up our brains
Oh please, don't let these posts go on.

You see me now a veteran of a thousand Hugo wars
My energy is spent at last, and my armor is destroyed
I have used up all my words, and I'm helpless and bereaved
Wounds are all I'm made of
Did I hear you say that this is victory?

Don't let these posts go on, it's time we had a break from it
Send me to the rear
Where the tides of madness swell
And authors sliding into hell
Oh please, don't let these posts go on.
