Frightened Rabbit – Nothing Like You

“‘Tis true my form is something odd,
But blaming me is blaming God;
Could I create myself anew
I would not fail in pleasing you.

If I could reach from pole to pole
Or grasp the ocean with a span,
I would be measured by the soul;
The mind’s the standard of the man.”

— poem used by Joseph Merrick to end his letters, adapted from “False Greatness” by Isaac Watts.

I live until the call.

The Tallest Man On Earth – The Wild Hunt

I was never born, I just walked in one frosty morn. I live while I’m living, and I shall live until the call.

When I die, I die and I plan to be forgotten when I’m gone.

My path to heaven is guided. Along that golden highway I see God in the headlights, I read the signs. I say to myself ‘Things I have seen run with the river’s flow, and so shall I’.

Beyond this path I see another world. ‘This is not a summer dream’ I say. There I’ll sleep out in the glade just by the giant tree, just to be closer when my spirit’s pulled away.

And leave my heart to the wild hunt.

And today we have Sam. Sam likes The Tallest Man On Earth. Some cry for Dylan comparisons, others lambaste them for trying. And you?
