Zoids Chaotic Century and Guardian Force do not belong to me, but are property of their respective owners such as Tomy, Hasbro, Pioneer, The Ocean Group, etc. Not Dead Yet is the property of The Styx.

While writing this filk, I was fully aware of the fact that three, maybe four if I’m lucky, people will actually understand it. What can I say? Considering the age of the average Zoids fan, I doubt that many of you know any of The Styx past (Domo Arigato) Mr. Roboto. Therefore, I have set up a page on SOS with the original lyrics and an mp3 of the song. If this silly parody does nothing else but expand your musical horizons a little, then I will not have lived in vain. ::ahem:: You can find it at http://soschubaltz.tripod.com/files/styx.html

There’s also an annotated version of the filk on that page. Yes, everything mentioned in this song actually happened to our beloved Schubaltz the Younger. And people wonder why I set up SOS: Save our Schubaltz.

Well I was drawn too late to be in Century,
I don't know Marcus and I never fought Prozen.
No, I’m standin' with an AI, it’s R2D2’s bastard son.
Go out, get drunk, mock Van, have fun,
I don't got an organoid, I don't drive an Atak Kat.
Give me half a chance 'cause I'm not dead yet!


I'm not dead yet!
No no, I'm not dead yet!
In my ‘Bison fighting with the wall against my back,
You better get a bigger zoid—I'm not dead yet!


I've been machine-gunned, Parti-gunned, hijacked, left for dead,
Dive-bombed, missiled strong, nuclear warheaded.
Ran from an organoid—with lit dynamite!
Shot by a Genosaur & caught in a ‘Sniper’s sight,
I'm runnin’ from a gravi-well with three legs left—
Well, I can still fall, and I'm not dead yet!


I'm not dead yet!
No no, I'm not dead yet!
In my ‘Bison fighting with with a mean Megalomax,
You better get a bigger zoid—I'm not dead yet!


Hiltz, you're bigger? Tougher? Meaner? Rougher?
Dirtier and uglier and sneakier and trickier,
You wanna go hijack my zoid, then mess with its core?
"Command system freeze," make it go start a war.
I’m tied up on the floor, and that time bomb is set, well,
Try that again, ‘cause I'm not dead yet!


I'm not dead yet,
No no, I'm not dead yet!
I'm a sleeper zoid waitin’ in an Ancient Zian wreck,
You better get a bigger zoid,
You better get a kickass zoid!


[Wild (but short) guitar solo. Yeah, baby!]


Well there's Riese down in her ‘Sworder and there's Hiltz up in his Whale,
And that damned maverick wants to get me by my tail,
And the Stinger is stingin’, like those Ghosts of Trinity,
Riese brainwashed my brother—he’s comin’ after me!
Soon-to-be Empress went and hit me with her hat.
Some day they’re gonna get me but I'm (not dead yet)


I'm not dead yet!
I'm not dead yet!
I'm a sleeper zoid waitin’ in an Ancient Zian wreck,
You better get a bigger zoid,
To beat my ‘lectric organoid!

Not dead yet,
Not me!

I’m not dead yet!
I'm a mad zoid fighting with the wall against my back
You better get a bigger zoid
Not dead yet,
Not dead yet!

Not dead yet.
Megalomax!

Not dead yet,
Yeah!

Not dead yet,
In my ‘Bison, fighting with mean Megalomax,
You better get a bigger zoid, I-I-I’m
Not dead yet….
Whew!
