"Black Black Ocean" as written by and Eric Emil Bachmann....
Standing in a sea of sleaze
Devils come to bury me
Half way dead and half alive
Sickness never felt so right
And every year a few feet more
Creeping up the ocean floor
Crawling up the ocean floor
Crawling slowly to the shore
Evil lurks an evil pure
Rising up with an even cure
To swallow every living thing
Evil evil entropy
Drifting drowning death came pounding
Over under rape and plunder
And I can't swim and I can't breathe
Drowning on this drunken sea
Black black ocean creeping tide
Rise over me and then leave me to die
Hanging off the levee brink
I fell in with a crowd of freaks
Half were dead and half alive
Half would kill you the other half would try
Hooked and baited lined and weighted
Thrown in with the shit and brine
So when the Devil's time is due
And this Devil swallows you
When half a truth is half a lie
And sickness never felt so right
Shame throws down a deathly notion
Creeping up over black black ocean
Drifting drowning death came pounding
Over under rape and plunder
And I can't swim and I can't breathe
Drowning on this drunken sea
Black black ocean creeping tide
Wash over me and then leave me to die

    General CommentI love this song. The guitar reminds me of the Velvet Underground, while the lyrical content reminds me, obviously, of Chumming the Oceans by the Loaf.
