Okkervil River - So Come Back, I Am Waiting:

A black sheep boy revolves over canyons and waterfalls.
A black sheep boy dissolves in syringe or in shower stall.

He says
“There’s plenty of time to make you mine tonight,
there’s plenty of time to make you mine.”

He says
“There’s plenty of ways to know you’re not dying,
all right.
Hell, there’s plenty of light still left in your eyes.”

A black sheep boy grows horns,
breathing smoke through his microphone.
The airwaves stretch and they groan, bleeding, birthing his black diapason.

Says
“There’s plenty of things to wear when you come to me,
every color of sleeve to be rolled.
Millions of rolling eyes that still cling to me.
Every language of king is concerned.
So why
did you bawl
from the spell of some old holy song
some liar laughed as he composed,
some liar I loved to control?”

A black sheep boy dissolves
in hot cream, in sweet moans,
in each dead bed and empty home,
in each seething bacterium.

Killing softly and serial,
he lifts his head, handsome, horned, magisterial.
He's the smell of the moonlight wisteria.
He’s the thrill of the abecedarian.
See the muddy hoofprints where he carried you?

And there’s plenty of ways to claim his crimes tonight,
and there’s plenty of things to do on his dime.
And there’s plenty of ways to wear his hide tonight,
you’ve got yours, I’ve got mine.
You’ve got yours, I’ve got mine.
So why
did you flee?
Don’t you know you can’t leave his control
only call all his wild works your own?
So come back and we’ll take them all on.
So come back to your life on the lam.
So come back to your old black sheep man.

Says
“I'm waiting on hoof and on hand.
I'm waiting, all hated and damned.
I'm waiting, I snort and I stamp.
I'm waiting, you know that I am,
calmly waiting to make you my lamb”

I cum blood


i saw the thread title and my first thought was "god damn it, i know the answers are gonna be 'i cum blood' "

then i opened the thread and scrolled through the responses while praying that none of them contain the phrase.

then i came across your post and i said "GOD DAMN IT!" out loud.

but its not actual dissapointment. im just glad that SOMEONE did it because it HAD to be done.

Oh stop saying pink floyd. The imagery is nice but the writing isn't the best. if you want something wordsworth-y check out stuff of The Decemberists' "Hazards Of Love":

Gentle leaves, gentle leaves
Please array a path for me
The woods are blowing thick and fast around

Columbine, Columbine
Please alert this love of mine
Let him know his Margaret comes along

And all this stirring inside my belly
won't quell my want for love
And I may swoon from all this swaying
But I won't want for love


Mistlethrush, Mistlethrush
Lay me down in the underbrush
My naked feet grow weary with the dusk

Willow Boughs, Willow Boughs,
Make a bed to lay me down
Let your branches bow to cradle us

And all this stirring inside my belly
won't quell my want for love
And I may swoon from all this swaying
But I won't want for love

Oh, my own true love
Oh, my own true love
Can you hear me, love?
Can you hear me, love?

And all this stirring inside my belly
won't quell my want for love
And I may swoon from all this swaying
But I won't want for love

Won't want for love...
Won't want for love...
Won't want for love...

THIS times a thousand.
If man is 5, if man is 5, if man is 5,
then the Devil is 6, then the Devil is 6, then the Devil is 6, the Devil is 6,
And if the Devil is 6,

then God is 7, then God is 7, then God is 7
This monkey's gone to heaven.

if you want something metally, circle takes the square is very good, and even quotes The Wasteland, which is a very difficult poem (1800s I think)
