Q. Why is your Tumblelog called "My Ear-Trumpet Has Been Struck by Lightning"?
A. Because "My Grandmother's Ear-Trumpet Has Been Struck by Lightning" wouldn't fit in the available space.
“The Weeping Song” by Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds off of The Good Son
This is my favorite song by them! I heard a rumor that this song has been banned in several countries because so many people have committed suicide to it, but I haven’t been able to find any sources, so I’m thinking that’s not true.
Go son, go down to the water And see the women weeping there Then go up into the mountains The men, they are weeping too. Father, why are all the women weeping? They all are weeping for their men Then why are all the men there weeping? They are weeping back at them.
This is a weeping song A song in which to weep While all the men and women sleep. This is a weeping song But I won’t be weeping long.
Father why are all the children weeping? They are merely crying son. O, are they merely crying father? Yes, true weeping is yet to come.
This is a weeping song A song in which to weep While all the little children sleep. This is a weeping song But I won’t be weeping long.
O father tell me are you weeping? Your face seems wet to touch. O then I’m so sorry father I never thought I hurt you so much.
This is a weeping song A song in which to weep While we rock ourselves to sleep. This is a weeping song But I won’t be weeping long No. I won’t be weeping long
