Eleventh He Reaches London//Girt By Piss (Hollow Be My Name, 2009)
Flies and locusts, I dressed as monarchs
Sit in thrones in a kingdom of boxes
I shovelled their guts out,
trampled their corpsesAnd dragged their bodies with oxen
Morphine//The Night (The Night, 2000)
You’re the night, Lilah. A little girl lost in the woods.
You’re a folk tale, the unexplainable
You’re a bedtime story. The one that keeps the curtains closed.
Fall of Efrafa//Elil (Full album, 2007)
All the world will be your enemy, Prince with a Thousand enemies. Whenever they catch you, they will kill you. But first they must catch you; digger, listener, runner, Prince with the swift warning. Be cunning, and full of tricks, and your people shall never be destroyed.

Phillip Beggs//Birds of Paradise (Live, 2009)
[Song starts 2 minutes in]
and birds of paradise were singing somewhere in the forest
but I couldn’t hear; couldn’t see the forest or the trees
with my head so full of fear.
Liz Stinger//Over the Sea (Pendulum, 2008)
I dreamt of you last night as a beautiful bird
Taking me high and away from the world.
Julia Stone//I was Only 19 (Redgum cover, 2012)
Then someone yelled out “Contact!” and the bloke behind me swore
We hooked in there for hours, then a Godalmighty roar
Frankie kicked a mine the day that mankind kicked the moon,
God help me, he was going home in June.
Oh wow. I’ve been listening to lots of songs about the ANZACs/Australian war songs today and this cover is absolutely gorgeous.
