Kyon-kun, Denwa Song

Kyon-kun, denwa (キョンくん, 電話)
[With apologies to Leonard Cohen]


I heard there was a secret chord
Nagato played that pleased the Lord
but you don’t really care for spoilers, do ya?
Well it goes like this: the fourth, the fifth
the minor fall and the major lift
the baffled queen composing Kyon-kun, denwa~

Kyon-kun, denwa…

Well your faith was strong but you needed proof
you saw her batting on the roof
her beauty and the espers overthrew ya.
She tied you to her kitchen chair;
she broke your throne – she cut your hair –
and from imouto drew the Kyon-kun, denwa~

Kyon-kun, denwa…


Senpai, I’ve been here before.
I’ve seen this room and I’ve walked this floor;
I used to live alone before I knew ya.
I’ve seen your flag on the marble arch
but time is not a victory march:
it’s a cold and it’s an endless Kyon-kun, denwa~

Kyon-kun, denwa…

There was a time you let me through
between abusing Mikuru
but now you never show that to me, do you?
But remember when I moved in you
and the holy dove was moving too
and every breath we drew was Kyon-kun, denwa~


Well, maybe there’s a Haruhi
but all she ever said to me
was how to shoot somebody who outdrew ya
it’s not a cry that you hear at night
it’s not somebody who’s seen the light
it’s a cold and it’s an endless Kyon-kun, denwa~

Kyon-kun, denwa…

One might be forgiven for thinking that Moritheil is a postmodern literary critic who started reviewing video games in 2001, and spent the early 2000s learning at the right hand of con staff and fansubbers. However, those rumors are spurious: Moritheil is actually a distant relative of Genghis Khan who stands poised to conquer the world via the Internet. Follow along at

  1. You did mention some time ago that this post would be related to キョンくん 、電話 but I never thought it would be a song. Anyway…

    Lol. This is just plain awesome. I give it an Endless 8/10.
