Mark Lanegan - One Hundred Days
One day a ship comes in
When it’s something good…
Poetry is poetry, when a poem is a poem…. right?
I jumped in the river and what did I see?
Black-eyed angels swam with me
A moon full of stars and astral cars
All the things I used to see
All my lovers were there with me
All my past and futures
And we all went to heaven in a little row boat
There was nothing to fear and nothing to doubt
“You did not understand what I am. I am love. I am pleasure, I am essence, I am an idiot, I am an alcoholic, I am tenacious, I am a painter. I am simply I am…You are a shit.”
