The Heartache Over Innsmouth - Lyrics

Postby normsherman » Fri Aug 21, 2009 10:23 pm

I was the new kid in school,
A first year freshmen theosophy major at Miskatonic U
Wandering through my life in a daze there, until I met you
With your bulging watery eyes,
Felt like I was tied down with my insides hanging out
Like a human sacrifice

I asked you on a date
In a croaking gutteral whisper you said "Pick me up at 8"
I remember how your hair (and your spine) curled, and your shambling gait
You had me from the start
and I don't care about your ancient, hideous gods,
they'll never keep us apart:

Cuz you're my quasi-icthyian angel
You're my half amphibian queen
You're the Overlord of my Universe
You're the Tormentor of my Dreams
You're my starry-eyed web-footed wonderful
You swallow my sanity
You're my fish-frog sweetheart, Baby let me be your
Filthy gibbering lunatic priest

There was magic in the air
the first time I ran my hands through your patches of stringy yellow hair
The first time I kissed your blistering lips, when you whispered in my ear
That you would you be mine
But when you finished transforming you were out the door and,
You never even said goodbye

And here I am today
while you're swimmin in some non-euclidean sunken city named R'leya
And there's a cyclopean hole in my soul that I know'll never go away
Because you left me far behind,
Now I'm locked up in this loony bin, screamin your name at night:

Cuz you're my quasi-icthyian angel
You're my half amphibian queen
You're the Overlord of my Universe
You're the Tormentor of my Dreams
You're my starry-eyed web-footed wonderful
You're The Thing that Can Never Be
You're my fish-frog demigod and baby girl I'm your
filthy gibbering lunatic priest

I know"Old Ones Were and the Old Ones Are and the Old One's will always Be,"
And the Elder Gods wait, just beyond the Great Gate, and awaken from their ancient dreams,
Though loathsome hideous squid-headed blasphemies rise up from the deep,
I don't pay heed---
It doesn't matter to me:

Cuz you're my quasi-icthyian angel
You're my half amphibian queen
You're the Overlord of my Universe
You're the Tormentor of my Dreams
You're my starry-eyed web-footed wonderful
You swallow my sanity
You're my fish-frog sweetheart, I only wanna be your
filthy gibbering lunatic priest

Rock and roll will never die. And if does, it will return to feast upon the flesh of the living.

Well, at least I get to keep Broca's Area. Thank goodness for that. I have not heard "Zombie Fillet Mignon." Is that really a song?

No, that's just the prime cut.

Dr.Schrank concurs, (somewhat dimly and nearly completely unintelligible but nonetheless in total agreement as he tightens the clamps on your surgical halo.)

btw, are the soundtracks of the Bbardles available in MP3 format anywhere?

I know Pimp My Satellite is in full-spam mode as a standalone, but I'd like to have the others on my iPod too.

<Thx Strawman for the link... Man I'm tired of being the last post every time I log in, so I just edited this one... Such a forum hog... >

Thought this was kind of interesting and maybe forumites would want to try it.
Simplyscripts.com does weekly script writing challenges and the winner gets read. This week's challenge is to come up with a 12 page script with lyrics based on a clip of music, which just happens to be The Heartache Over Innsmouth, stripped of vocals.
Check it out!

Hey hey, my bbardle got a second run over at Escapepod! I wonder how they reacted.
You're my quasi-ichthian angel, you're my half-amphibian queen...

I really like this one a lot. It works on so many different levels.

Janet always talks about how cool it would be to grow gills so I forwarded this to her.
