Cossacks Are
Scott Walker Lyrics


"A moving aria
For a vanished
Style of mind
A noble debut
Tackling vertiginous
Demands
Has absence ever
Sounded so
Eloquent
So sad
I doubt it?"
With an arm
Across the
Torso
Face on
The nails
With an arm
Across the
Torso
Face on
The pale
Monkey
Nails
"Touching the
Shattered lives
It unearths
A nocturne
Filled with
Glorious ideas
A chilling
Exploration
Of erotic consumption"
With an arm
Across the
Torso
Face on
The nails
With an arm
Across the
Torso
Face on
The pale
Monkey
Nails
Cossacks are
Charging in
Charging into
Fields of
White roses
Cossacks are
Charging in
Charging into
Fields of
White roses
"That's a nice suit"
"That's a swanky suit"
"Been a pope like no other"
"I'm looking for a good cowboy"
"A rare outcry makes you lead a larger life"
"You could easily picture this in the current top ten"
"Medieval savagery
Calculated cruelty"
"It's hard to pick the worst moment"
Calculated cruelty"
"It's hard to pick the worst moment"
With an arm
Across the
Torso
Face on
The nails
With an arm
Across the
Torso
Face on
The pale
Monkey
Nails

Back-to-back, we have lost two geniuses of sophisticated, avant-garde pop: Mark Hollis, and now Scott Walker.

Matt Casebier

It is awesome that the same guy who sang Jacque Brel and Bachrach/David songs in the early 70's is also capable of this!!

Awesome stuff. Sounds love the guitar on the first song. Reminds me of avant garde black metal bands like Ved Buens Ende. Possibly were influenced by Scott Walker. Love the collaboration with SunnO))) too.
