Skullcrusher Mountain

2005-05-20

I'll be back with a real entry later, but for now I want to institute a new feature of my diary [this may not be permanent--I need to see how it goes/how lazy I am]: The song of the day. Today's song is Skullcrusher Mountain, by Jonathan Coulton. It can be listened to/downloaded at Fluxblog (it's about halfway down the page), and the reason it's the song of today is it made me laugh last night when I listened to it, and the tune is catchy--the song is stuck in my head. Here are the lyrics (from Jonathan Coulton's website):

Skullcrusher Mountain


Welcome to my secret lair on Skullcrusher Mountain
I hope that youíve enjoyed your stay so far
I see youíve met my assistant Scarface
His appearance is quite disturbing
But I assure you heís harmless enough
Heís a sweetheart, calls me master
And he has a way of finding pretty things and bringing them to me

Iím so into you
But Iím way too smart for you
Even my henchmen think Iím crazy
Iím not surprised that you agree
If you could find some way to be
A little bit less afraid of me
Youíd see the voices that control me from inside my head
Say I shouldnít kill you yet

I made this half-pony half-monkey monster to please you
But I get the feeling that you donít like it
Whatís with all the screaming?
You like monkeys, you like ponies
Maybe you donít like monsters so much
Maybe I used too many monkeys
Isnít it enough to know that I ruined a pony making a gift for you?

Iím so into you
But Iím way too smart for you
Even my henchmen think Iím crazy
Iím not surprised that you agree
If you could find some way to be
A little bit less afraid of me
Youíd see the voices that control me from inside my head
Say I shouldnít kill you yet

Picture the two of us alone inside my golden submarine
While up above the waves my doomsday squad ignites the atmosphere
And all the fools who live their foolish lives may find it quite explosive
But it wonít mean half as much to me if I donít have you here

You know it isnít easy living here on Skullcrusher Mountain
Maybe you could cut me just a little slack
Would it kill you to be civil?
Iíve been patient, Iíve been gracious
And this mountain is covered with wolves
Hear them howling, my hungry children
Maybe you should stay and have another drink and think about me and you

Iím so into you
But Iím way too smart for you
Even my henchmen think Iím crazy
Iím not surprised that you agree
If you could find some way to be
A little bit less afraid of me
Youíd see the voices that control me from inside my head
Say I shouldnít kill you yet
I shouldnít kill you yet
I shouldnít kill you yet |
