"dead opera star" as written by and Mark Linkous....
There is a dead
Opera star
Floating in the great
Dismal swamp
And he was wearing
A dress with watermelons on it
And he stuffed his bra
With spanish moss

Dead opera star
Dead opera star
Dead opera star
Floating in the great dismal swamp

Black tupelo
Where all the planets beyond goes to die
The air hangs thick
With dead electricity
He was chased by ball lightning
Went crazy from sleeping under the moonlight
And the soul of a unbaptised infant
He swims the waters upsetting boats

Dead opera star
Dead opera star
Dead opera star
Floating in the great dismal swamp

    General Commentokay this song is fantastic. but it needs to be at least 10 minutes longer. there should have been a whole fucking sparklehorse album that had this sound!
