The Lyrics

This song involves with my reaction to the cancellation of Escaflowne from FOX Kids. Go figure.
It was close
Close but no award
Though the show got so far
You know it got so close
Close but no award

Some people have cool shows
Many people have some
I do have a cool show
But sadly that show got cancelled

'Twas Escaflowne
It was on Fox
It premiered on August
But then it got cancelled later
Cancelled and ruined

It was close
Close but no award
Though the show got so far
You know it got so close
Close but no award
No matter how it's good
You know it got so close
Close but no award

I remember, remember, remember
That it was my favorite
As proud as it can
It was simply the best

And I remember, remember, remember
How they define action
And adventure

Yeah, yeaaah

But it was cancelled
It didn't make it
After nine episodes
It upsets fans like you and me

I think they banned it
'Cause they hate me
I'm worried that Zim would
Make fun of that favorite show I've known
Now I cannot see that show no more
It's not on those Fox Kids promos
Not even the latest

It was close
Close but no award
Though the show got so far
You know it got so close
Close but no award
No matter how it's good
You know it got so close

Close but no award
Though the show got so far
You know it got so close
Close but no award
Maybe they think it sucked
You know it got so close
Close but no award
