Beyond the Image
by babycakes
Rated: G
Disclaimer: Sadly, I don't any of them

Can you see beyond the image?
See behind the flashy smile?
Do you even notice the little boy inside,
begging to be let out?
Or do you only see the conman, the scam, the supplier?

Can you see beyond the image?
See behind the gruff attitude?
Do you even notice the little Scooter inside,
wanting to be Mama's boy?
Or do you only see the size, the gold, the growl?

Can you see beyond the image?
See behind the insanity?
Do you even notice the hidden genius,
peeking out from time to time?
Or do you only see the pilot, the cap, the nut?

Can you see beyond the image?
See behind the cigar?
Do you even notice the human,
hidden within the legend?
Or do you only see the leader, the plan, the invincibility?

I See You
by Ilah

I see you
You don't think I do
But I see the self-doubt behind the charmer
Behind the smile and scams and women
Your desire to belong cannot hide from me
I see you

I see you
You don't think I do
But I see the boy behind the scowl
Behind the temper and growl and muscles
You're not just an angry mudsucker to me
I see you

I see you
You don't think I do
But I see the genius behind the mask of fools
Behind the nuttiness and lunacy and invisible dogs
You're not invisible to me
I see you

I see you
You don't think I do
But I see the mortal behind the legend
Behind the plans and cigars and jazz
You're more than just invincible to me
I see you
