"The Camper Velourium II: Backend of Forever" as written by and Claudio/todd Sanchez....
Rocked silent in a soft lullaby,
Panic stirred me awakened by a ringing phone in time,
Where and when would I see her?
Crazy were the words that scribbled out your mouth,
I stuttered replacing your face to those words,
Where and when could I kill her?
I'll wish on this, I'll wish with this,
I-I wish, to the bitter end of my day,
Well, where were you?

So you had your turn and you made it work,
Now I'm the laughing stock of your joke,
As crazy as it may seem, I cried for you when you,
Told me to date all of the things that made you end up in my life,
And I'll believe anything; I have no luck with girls.

I overheard that you were unhappy too,
Misleading trust into a relationship that makes no sense,
Over and out and Connecticut,
But you had your back turned as you faded away,
The end of my day I found out,
You weren't worth what I thought of you.

Write this down in the diary you abuse,
Can we make plans; can I just get through to you?
Is this weird, do I scare her?
I'll wish on this, I'll wish with this,
I-I wish, that you could share the love you'd shared with others, with me.

So you had your turn and you made it work,
Now I'm the laughing stock of your joke,
As crazy as it may seem I cried for you when you,
Told me to date all of the things that made you end up in my life,
And I'll believe anything; I have no luck with girls,

I overheard that you were unhappy too,
Misleading trust into a relationship that makes no sense,
Over and out Connecticut.
But you had your back turned as you faded away,
The end of my day I found out,
You weren't worth what I thought of you.

But this isn't love so forever let it go, forever will it burn,
But this isn't love there on the back end of forever I wish I would never hurt again.

    General CommentAt this point in the story, we have the group of Claudio, Ambellina, and Sizer. They need to make their way to the House Atlantic on the world of Silent Earth to face Wilhelm Ryan. However, they are stranded on the world of Godder Damm.

    To get off the planet, they need the help of a character named Al, because he has a ship called the Camper Velorium that can get them off-planet.

    However, along with the first Camper Velorium part, this song is strictly about Al and his backstory. He is a serial killer who kills women that remind him of an ex girlfriend (or possibly ex wife). Her name is Luci. He is obsessed with befriending women that remind him of Luci, and then killing them.

    This song is about him having flash backs to his relationship with Luci, and using the anger to drive him to kill these women. It's not about him attempting to kill Ambellina.

    "So you had your turn, and you made it work." This line is about him trying a new girl, and him suiting his needs of meeting another girl that reminds him of Luci.

    "I cried for you when you told me to date all of the things that made you end up in my life. And I'll believe anything." When Luci broke up with Al, she told him to date other girls that made him happy, but that was what Luci was. So he uses this line as a justification for hunting these women that remind him of Luci.

    So no, the song is just more backstory into Al's character. It really doesn't have any implications on the core story at hand.

    General Commentok, this is what i think it's about. velorium camper I-III are about al the killer, he's a kind of boba fett/han solo type of character who's ship is called the velorium camper. he's pretty crazy. now, i believe this song is about him coming to terms with crushing, i guess, on one of his marks, a girl he raped (see lyrics to TVCI:FOH). occaisonally he'll report back to his handlers (over and out, connecticut), all the while trying to convince himself that he's not really in love with his target (this isn't love there on the back end of forever, i wish i would never hurt again). he's been made vulnerable by falling in love (witness when he cries at her story, etc). he's been hurt by having entered into an emotional bond with his victim. like i said, he's sick. this is rectified in TVCIII:ATK when he goes pretty kill crazy, targeting white girls (his previous target).

    General Commenti think claudio said that al wasn't necessarily good, only important... helpful to someone/something in the story, but bad in nature.
