Okay.. as everyone knows, I'm obsessing over steampunk lately. (and hopefully for a long time.. as I don't want to cycle out of this one..)
Anyways, while doing my obsessive webcrawling for Steampunk media, I came across my new favorite band.. Abney Park. Gorgeous website, costumes, videos, etc.. If I were a musician, I'd want to do the same thing. As it is, I want to do this with -film-.
Anyways, I found a video of my favorite song from Abney Park on youtube, which I have to share. And then I searched the lyrics, and realized -exactly- why this is SO Appropriate.
The Wrong Side
I live on the wrong side of life,
I’m the one you fear as you hold your wife.
I run were the darker crowds run.
On the rain swept streets were black rain runs.
I play were the darker kids play
I’m the one who goes out when you end your day.
I dance were the darker crowds dance,
In the pitch black clubs in a clove stained trance
I see things the darker kids see
Though you wouldn’t believe all that’s happened to me.
I’ve been to the backside of hell,
And I’ve played with your fear and enjoyed it well
This our time, the nights our day
We ’ll dance this fading life away.
