Ligottian Songs

I could not find a thread like this so I figured there hasn't been one created yet. Either that or the bastard was hiding from me.

Anyway, this thread is for posting songs which remind you of any Thomas Ligotti story. Every once in a while I'll hear a song and instantly think of a setting I recall imagining while reading one of his works.

I'll start off with a song by Slipknot titled "Danger Keep Away:"

Re: Ligottian Songs

This might be stating the obvious, but the only song I've ever heard specifically about TL is available in TLO's own Audiobox under "Good Tom-Go-Lightly." You can tell it's a very heartfelt piece that echoes what many of us feel about Ligotti's work.

Re: Ligottian Songs

Bauhaus - Mask



The man of shadows thinks in clay
Dreamed trapped thoughts of suffocation day
He's seen in iron environments
With plastic sweat out of chiselled slits for eyes

From the growth underneath the closed mouth
You'll catch if you listen
Rack-trapped cubist vowels
From a dummy head expression
From a dummy head expression

The transformation is invested
With the mysterious and the shameful
While the thing I am becomes something else
Part character part sensation

The shadow is cast

This is my life. This is my damnation. This is my only regret--that I ever was born.
