The Goat

This song is by Sopor Aeternus and appears on the compilation album Like A Corpse Standing In Desperation (2005).

There is an old goat at my window-pane,
Standing upright in a frock-coat,
Somewhat earth-coloured and plain.
He is starring down at me ...
And the place where I have chosen to hide ...
In the futile attempt to dissolve ...
I discovered this cell as a child.

There is a medicine-case, he calls "being",
Which the goat carries under his arm.
He says, if I only allow him to enter -
I shall never come come to any harm.
He is giving quite an importance to
His frrightning and urgent concern, he says:
"I have come to be your transformer...
I'm your doctor, half goat and half man."

He says that this house will soon crumble,
And that I am going to suffer as it falls.
He says: "Let me in now and I'll be your savior...
I'm your healer ... with hooves and horns!"
