"Weird sisters" as written by and Mark Linkous....
The parasites will love you when you're dead
La la la, la la
Hiding all the rattles in the bed
La la la, la la
Come crawling in
With bulging eyes
Now I can see
There's a bad moon on the rise

Raking all the gravels from the tracks
La la la, la la
Forget about the daggers in my backs
La la la, la la
Scream across the lawn
With fire in her hair
Millionaires come tumbling
Down the stairs

A big wind spitting female
Rain and teeth
La la la, la la
The dark wolves fell upon me
Wools and fleece
La la la, la la
Come crawling in
With bulging eyes
Now I can see
There's a bad moon on the rise

    General Comment"Bad moon on the rise", for those who might not have caught it, is a reference to Creedence Clearwater Revival's song by the same name.
