electricpaladin: (Sons of Ether)
Azathoth
To the tune of TLC's Waterfalls

A lonely mother gazing out of the window
Staring at a son that she just can't touch
If at any time he's in a jam she'll be by his side
But he doesn't realize he hurts her so much
But all the praying just ain't helping at all
Cause he can't seem to keep his self out of trouble
So he goes out and he makes a difference the best way he knows how
Another zombie laying cold in the gutter
Listen to me

Don't go chasing Azathoth
Please stick to the demons and the gods that you're used to
I know that you're gonna have it your way or nothing at all
But I think you're moving too fast

Little precious has a natural obsession
For knowledge that he just can't reach
He reads all the books that his mind can handle
But all he can say is baby it's good for me
One day he goes and takes a glimpse in the mirror
But he doesn't recognize his own face
Sanity fading and he doesn't know why
HPL sing him to his final resting place
Ya'll dont'hear me

Don't go chasing Azathoth
Please stick to the demons and the gods that you're used to
I know that you're gonna have it your way or nothing at all
But I think you're moving too fast

This is the Best Song Ever. It's by a guy named Dan Bern, and it's called Jerusalem. Here are the lyrics:

lj-cut for your protection )

You have to understand, this guy sounds just like Bob Dylan, only with better enunciation and more Jewish. His singing isn't too great, but he puts passion into the words. He acts it as much as it sings, its almost more like a monologue to music than it is a song. The instrumental music is this rhythmic, complex (Bob-Dylanesque) guitar strumming.

And... I don't really know how to describe it. To me, this song is beautiful. It's close to the song my heart sings when I'm happy. It's outrageous and rediculous, and hopeful and unstoppable. It's like gold fire. It's like singing am yisrael chai against the setting sun, and the sky is brilliant red and orange and pink, and the day is dying but you know - you know - that you are going to live forever.

To continue musing, I decided along time ago what the end of the world sounds like. This song is the opposite of that sound. This song is like what I want my descendants to sing against the end of the world, in voices like the rising sun and the morning star. This song, and am yisrael chai, and possibly eli eli. That'll show the end of the world that you don't screw around with the descendants of Mark Simmons.
