Track Name: Listen Galahad
The show's over. Next time, bring a camera and buy a ticket.

Look, can't we go somewhere and talk?

No, I don't date men. Because I pose like I do. You get... ideas. You're all alike.

No, not all of us.

Okay, so maybe you're better than most. Maybe not. I still hate all men. After what one did to me once. Have you forgotten? Well, have you?

No, I haven't forgotten.

Neither have I. I carry the memory around with me.

But you can't hide yourself away here forever.

Listen, Galahad, I trusted a man once, all the way! What did it get me? He gets his head filled with jealous lies and I get --

You have to forget!

-- How can I forget!? I carry the memory around with me.

You don't even turn away from me, like everyone else does.

To me you're not ugly. I see only beauty in you. You have lovely body and a face that can be made beautiful again also.

I've heard that song before.
