"Fable" as written by and Huffman Newsham....
we landed in this place,
tried to make this island more like home,
but there are some things better left behind...

we came here on a plane just a bunch of little boys,
dance around the fire,
and we strike it down,
never goin home not really,
we'll take this island everywhere we go...

we came here on a plane just a bunch of little boys,
dance around the fire,
then we strike it down,
we'll burn the island down,
kill the pig pig kill the pig pig,
kill the pig pig...

we came here on a plane just a bunch of little boys,
dropped the boulder on his brain you can never take it back,
dance around the fire (i see the world in a swirl of hues),
then we strike it down,
burn the island down,
kill the pig pig kill the pig pig,
kill the pig pig.

    General Commenti discovered this song shortly after studying Lord Of The Flies for english, and yes, it DEFFINATELY is about LOTF.
    i didn't like any of the characters in the book though, maybe thats why i didn't get emotionally distressed like the rest of the class while reading it.
    I hated Piggy towards the end, Simon was an idiot, Jack was a monster, and what ever the protagonist was called, oh god... the whole group were bastards, but maybe that was the Author's inention...
    oh well, i feel like writing a song about To Kill A Mockingbird...
    that would be cool.

    General Commentindahousecat your bad

    if you knew anything about anything...character represent fruedian parts of the mind (id, ego, super ego), and the only one who doesnt is simon who is a "christ" figure. lord of the flies is a rough translation of the latin and hebrew word for the devil...if u analyze all of those things and then see how the book unfolds it makes everything a lot better...

    General CommentAmazing song, amazing book. When I first heard the song it reminded me of the Strokes, only to find the demo version on SATS called "Stroked."
