They were the only friends I ever had
We got into trouble and when stuff got bad
I got sent away, I was waving on the train platform
Crying 'cause I know I'm never comin' back

For some reason, NAQT's stats say that "Sambuddha" is Sam Zbarsky, what's up with that?

On Blair, Alex Nevoran and Robert Fleischer should be Alex Newman and Robby Fleischman, I believe.
