Cue
Scott Walker Lyrics


What do Seoul/Sudan have in common?
Both start with an S
Deep as a virus
Little Mary
Little Mary
From scratchless I ascend
Stamps tongue-swabbed
Now embark for the Ivory Coast
Chiming like mouse bells
BAM BAM BAM BAM
BAM BAM BAM BAM
At the birth of a vermin Holy Ghost
Stars led to sky
Lash led to eye
Herpes to clit
Then stopped
Expect
I'm carried by lanterns
Expect
I will follow the aerosol patterns
Immunity won't feed on the bodies
Bones closing
Too soon at the tips
Won't feed on the bodies
From the fat black crocodile on the sand bar
Can't swallow it then bury it
From the voice flooded semen clotting to paste
Can't swallow it then bury it
And the jigger raps pits
Darkness long
Jigger raps pits
BAM BAM BAM BAM
BAM BAM BAM BAM
Shoes had to shine
Splicing to swine
Strain after strain after strain after strain
Immunity
Immunity
Through the dominant wards and nurseries
A flugleman moves
In the lung-smeared slides and corridors
A flugleman moves
And his tune rises on the harvest clouds of dust
Trading the wah-wah's for
BAM BAM BAM BAM
BAM BAM BAM BAM
Stars led to sky
Toe led to thigh
Rumor to breast
Then stopped

Goin right in my party playlist.

this stuff of his is so bleak and weird. like a journey into hell and turmoil. I'm impressed that he could do it and not kill himself before it was finished.

@Joseph James Yeah I saw it a few years ago.

+ploperator If you watch the documentary 30 Century Man, you'll be surprised to see the environment the album was recorded in was full of laughter and smiles.

The Drift = one of the finest albums released in 2006.

This is absolutely bloody terrifying. Its like a gothic nightmare made into music. Its not just the atmosphere in it, his voice is genuinely creepy in this too. Truly original, i love it! O_O

Ha ha - I can't believe that I am commenting on youtube -- anyway -- people call it freaky etc - but it seems to be more art, and actually modernist, rather than post modern as some describe Walker's oeuvre. Coming from a pop background as he does, it is of course to be applauded that he gets more avant-garde as he progresses: the inverse of most pop artists. I hear this more as musical theatre.     

Innsmouth

The best song ever. And the most chilling.

Rimethurse

This song's actually pretty funny if you get passed how utterly creepy it is.

'Bam, bam, bam, bam!'

@Someone liked your comment Lmao, it's so great. Bish Bosch is full of stuff like that. I love the shifts between humor and absolute nightmare fuel.
