A Hymn to the Morning Star
by Sleepytime Gorilla Museum

Open your heart to the lord of light
Open your heart and mind and let him in
He holds the key to the throne of might
You are empty

Say his name and let him in
All hail the dawn of a rising star
All hail the crowned and conquering child
Morning will come for you at last

No matter how far into night you have strayed
Say his name
Welcome the child
A new world is crawling from the ashes of the old

Two thousand years of guilt and fear
And the greatest lie ever told
Out of the wounded side of the dying god
Out of the sacred heart of the throttled hen

The blood is the life
The flowing milk for the infant god
The throne is empty
The cup is full

He approaches and then
He steps from the shadow and he opens up his eyes
He spills the blood onto the throne
And hurls a curse up to the skies

I am the adversary and must remain the adversary

Wykydtron I found it very comforting.

Matthew Ensign

okay it's been two years...are you still numbing your senses with poison?



hehe i'm kidding wake and bake bruhhh oh man i feel creative like i'm gonna write a book or draw something that i can really FEEL maaan. Movies, games and music are also way more interesting...but only the kind that have those POSITIVE VIBES. I got you, bro. I feel ya. This shit is scary and there aren't any cool/ethereal beats that I can easily bob my head to. I think I'll pass on this one as well.

Baphomet Rael

Disney music for the mystic left hand path kids.

Theprettiestfnord 23

FR though my first thought was "animated satan musical when?"

Joeofthemasks

Seriously some of the best "horror" music I've heard. When I want to write horror or draw creepy ass I listen to them.

Kitsunuki Inari

Saw them Live in SF...one of the best shows to date. The whole band was phenomenal and I always come back here to remember the good times.
