    Some say the Arts Center, it is a failure
    Of a town, that is in need
    Some say Jhelom, it is a city
    Where the Arts Center, should be left to bleed
    Some say the Arts Center, has a hunger
    To fill an aching need
    I say the Arts Center, is a sanctuary
    With the citizens, as the only seed

    It's in the town, for the making
    The Arts Center, a place to dance
    RueTor's pop-star dream, is in the waking
    If he only, gave it a chance
    And the town, left to be taken
    That has all there is to give
    Will have a soul no longer dyin'
    And an endless will to live

    So when the night has been too lonely
    And the foes have been too strong
    And you think being PK'd happens only
    To the weak, who have done no wrong
    Just remember little Jhelom
    Far at sea, where the cold wind blows
    A place called the Performing Arts Center, where this fall
    RueTor, may sing his prose

    Hmmm... you have to give the politicians and their assistants credit. They do love to try to mold the behavior of the people within their town. Striving to make things seem like a "bed of roses", but do they know "every rose has its thorns"? Ahhh well... that may be a tale for another day.


    Well... I can't ever go into the Performing Arts Centre, it is just against my nature. They just don't understand... can't bring myself to go up on stage anywhere... It is just not me.

    I Sing Alone

    I sing alone, yeah
    With nobody else
    I sing alone, yeah
    With nobody else
    You know when I sign alone
    I prefer to be by myself

    Every morning before hunting
    I don't want audience or stage
    Just me and buddy Colossus
    That's all I ever need
    'Cause I sing alone, yeah
    With nobody else
    Yeah, you know when I sing alone
    I prefer to be by myself

    The other night I was training
    And I bored and went on a hunt
    So I called up my pal Vengeful Spirit
    And his partner Energy Vortex
    And we sing alone, yeah
    With nobody else
    Yeah, you know when I sing alone
    I prefer to be by myself

    The other day I got invited to spawn
    But I stayed home instead
    Just me and my pals Summon Fey
    and his brothers Summon Fiend
    And we sing alone
    Yeah, with nobody else
    Yeah, you know when I sing alone
    I prefer to be by myself

    Yeah, my whole town done give up on me
    And it makes me feel oh so bad
    The only one who will hang out with me
    Is my dear Minion Horde
    And we sing alone, yeah
    With nobody else
    Yeah, you know when I sing alone
    I prefer to be by myself
