Apr-21-07  Tomlinsky: And when I see the sign that points one way
The lot we used to pass by every day

Just walk away Renee
You won't see me follow you back home
The empty sidewalks on my block are not the same
You're not to blame

  FSR: We need to find a game where Renet's king is under attack and flees to the other side of the board, so we can caption it "Just Walk Away, Renet."

RENET, Olivier
