lyrics

© 1999 Jeff Bohnhoff

Please allow me to introduce myself:
I can give you power and fame.
My associates have been around for a long, long year.
Brought many a world down in flames.
I was there when the Icarus fell
And Anna met her fate.
Made damn sure that the pilot
and the crew would cooperate.

Pleased to meet you.
Can you guess my name?
Well, it’s what you want that’s the nature of my game.

I stuck around Centauri Prime
when I saw it was time for a change.
Duped Cartegia and his ministers, saw G’Kar scream in pain.
I murdered Kosh for my associates.
Made battles rage for evolution’s sake.
When the White Star came with its fiery rain, and in Valen’s name, struck Z’hadum,
I felt the cold.
But flesh does what it’s told, ’cause, after all, flesh is just a tool.
So let me please introduce myself When I come to you in the night.
I’m not the man I used to be,
But I still have you in my sight.

Every Minbari is a self-righteous fool
and every Vorlon is a cheat.
As the Shadows fall just call me, Morden,
’cause my hold on you is complete.
So if you meet me have some courtesy, have some sympathy and some taste.
Despite your well-learned politesse,
I’ll lay your world to waste.

Pleased to meet you.
Can you guess my name?
Well, it’s what you want that’s the nature of my game.
Pleased to meet you.
Did you call my name?
It’s what you think you want that’s the nature of my game.

about

Jeff and Maya Bohnhoff San Jose, California

Jeff and Maya have an identity crisis. Their music is sometimes uproariously funny parody (like their spot-on "Bohemian Rhapsody" parody "Midichlorian Rhapsody", or hauntingly beautiful, like "Road to Jerusalem" or "Manhattan Sleeps". One way or another, their music will create strong emotions. Jeff and Maya have been creating music together since 1979, and plan to continue for some time to come. ... more
