Vid: Like a friend

This vid has been lurking on my harddrive for months now. It... didn't work out exactly how I'd planned it (understatement). And for a while it destroyed my desire to vid. I want rid of it. Originally I was going to post this for wip_amnesty but I didn't even manage to get it finished for that!

Song: Like a friend
Artist: Pulp
Fandom: Smallville
Description: Lex's perspective on the Friendship of Legend, circa Season 5
Spoilers: Seasons 1-5
Download: direct download
Thanks: Profuse thanks must go to radioreverie for concept work, beta-ing, and above all for letting me massacre her own vision of this vid; to supacat for precise perfectionist beta-ing--if I ignored it, it's not her fault; and to talitha78 for encouragement, beta-ing and inspiration.
Feedback: Yes, please! (But please go gentle on the concrit on this one--while usually I welcome it, I'm already bruised and raw about this vid.)
Notes: The literalism is deliberate--it's my Lex-sees-everything-as-a-metaphor-for-Clark-and-goes-a-little-mad montage. *g*

Lyrics
Don't bother saying you're sorry.
Why don't you come in?
Smoke all my cigarettes - againe.
Every time I get no further.
How long has it been?
Come on in now,
Wipe your feet on my dreams.

You take up my time,
Like some cheap magazine,
When I could have been learning something.
Oh well, you know what I mean.

I've done this before.
And I will do it again.
Come on and kill me baby,
while you smile like a friend.
And I'll come running,
Just to do it again.

You are the last drink I never should drunk.
You are the body hidden in the trunk.
You are the habit I can't seem to kick.
You are my secrets on the front page every week.
You are the car I never should have bought.
You are the train I never should have caught.
You are the cut that makes me hide my face.
You are the party that makes me feel my age.

Like a car crash I can see but I just can't avoid.
Like a plane I've been told I never should board.
Like a film that's so bad but I've gotta stay til the end.
Let me tell you now,
It's lucky for you that we're friends.

*reminding myself that we learn through failure* May this not be my one-and-only Smallville vid for long!
