Stranger in a Strange Land 2012-04-13: New & Classic by The Stranger on Mixcloud

Happy Friday the 13th, everyone!

“Zig, zig, zig, Death is striking a tomb with his heel in cadence. Death is playing a dance tune on his violin at midnight. The winter wind blows, and the night is dark. From the linden trees come the moans. White skeletons move across the shadows, running and leaping in their shrouds. Zig, zig, zig, each one gives a tremor, and the dancer’s bones rattle. Hush! they suddenly leave off dancing, they jostle one another, they flee – the cock has crowed!”
