I find that the darkest song I love listening to is Inside The Fire by Disturbed. The song is about a guy standing over the body of his girlfriend that he just found had killed herself. The singer in the song is supposed to be the devil is standing next to him encouraging him to kill himself too. Dark shit but an excellent song.

What about you?

"A Little Piece Of Heaven"


Before the story begins, is it such a sin,
for me to take what's mine, until the end of time
We were more than friends, before the story ends,
And I will take what's mine, create what God would never design

Our love had been so strong for far too long,
I was weak with fear that something would go wrong,
Before the possibilities came true,
I took all possibility from you

Almost laughed myself to tears,
(ha hahahahaha)
conjuring her deepest fears
(come here you fucking bitch)

Must have stabbed her fifty fucking times,
I can't believe it,
Ripped her heart out right before her eyes,
Eyes over easy, eat it, eat it, eat it

She was never this good in bed even when she was sleeping
now she's just so perfect I've never been quite so fucking deep in
it goes on and on and on,
I can keep you looking young and preserved forever,
with a fountain to spray on your youth whenever

’Cause I really always knew that my little crime
would be cold that's why I got a heater for your thighs
and I know, I know it's not your time
but bye, bye
and a word to the wise when the fire dies
you think it's over but it's just begun
but baby don't cry

You had my heart, at least for the most part
’cause everybody's gotta die sometime,
We fell apart, let's make a new start
’cause everybody's gotta die sometime, yeah yeah
but baby don't cry

Now possibilities I'd never considered,
are occurring the likes of which I'd never heard,
Now an angry soul comes back from beyond the grave,
to repossess a body with which I'd misbehaved

Smiling right from ear to ear
Almost laughed herself to tears

Must have stabbed him fifty fucking times
I can't believe it
Ripped his heart out right before his eyes
Eyes over easy, eat it, eat it, eat it

Now that it's done I realize the error of my ways
I must venture back to apologize from somewhere far beyond the grave

I gotta make up for what I've done
’Cause I was all up in a piece of heaven
while you burned in hell, no peace forever

’Cause I really always knew that my little crime
would be cold that's why I got a heater for your thighs
and I know, I know it's not your time
but bye, bye
and a word to the wise when the fire dies
you think it's over but it's just begun
but baby don't cry

You had my heart, at least for the most part
’Cause everybody's gotta die sometime,
We fell apart, let's make a new start
’Cause everybody's gotta die sometime, yeah yeah
But baby don't cry

I will suffer for so long
(What will you do, not long enough)
To make it up to you
(I pray to God that you do)
I'll do whatever you want me to do
(Well then I’ll grant you one chance) *
And if it's not enough
(If it’s not enough, If it’s not enough)
If it's not enough
(Not enough)
Try again
(Try again)
And again
(And again)
Over and over again

We’re coming back, coming back
We’ll live forever, live forever
Let’s have wedding, have a wedding
Let’s start the killing, start the killing

"Do you take this man in death for the rest of your unnatural life?"
"Yes, I do"
"Do you take this woman in death for the rest of your unnatural life?"
"I do"
"I now pronounce you"

’Cause I really always knew that my little crime
would be cold that's why I got a heater for your thighs
and I know, I know it's not your time
but bye, bye
And a word to the wise when the fire dies
you think it's over but it's just begun
but baby don't cry

You had my heart, at least for the most part
’Cause everybody's gotta die sometime,
We fell apart, let's make a new start
’Cause everybody's gotta die sometime, yeah yeah
But baby don't cry

what could be better than a song about zombie couples?

Cage - Ballad Of Worms

She's cold as a corpse
And still holding The Source
Up in the air like: 'One day the cover is yours'
Took the IV out her wrist
Tried to give me a kiss
Before I tasted her lips, she dislocated her hips
Started shaking
Couldn't feed her no medication
To scared to beat on her chest in fear It'd cave in
Death waved again and each time leaves her
In a coma, for a week, to wake up to more seizures
But this time ain't like the rest
I can see right through her chest
And see her heart ain't got no f**kin beats left
Then a voluptuous ghost falls from a host
Looking like she did in High School then fades when I get close

Momma loves her baby,
And daddy loves you, too.
And the sea may look warm to ya, babe,
And the sky may look blue.

Oooooo babe.
Oooooooo baby blue.
Oooooo ooohh babe.

If you should go skating,
On the thin ice of modern life,
Dragging behind you the silent reproach,
Of a million tear-stained eyes,
Dont be surprised when a crack in the ice,
Appears under your feet.
You slip out of your depth and out of your mind,
With your fear flowing out from behind,
You as you claw the ice.

Not really the darkest song I like; just one I really like a lot. And you really have to hear the whole album, because it builds.

Mike and the Mechanics- Silent Running



Take the children and yourself
And hide out in the cellar
By now the fighting will be close at hand
Don't believe the church and state
And everything they tell you
Believe in me, I'm with the high command

Can you hear me, can you hear me running?
Can you hear me running, can you hear me calling you?
Can you hear me, can you hear me running?
Can you hear me running, can you hear me calling you?

There's a gun and ammunition
Just inside the doorway
Use it only in emergency
Better you should pray to God
The Father and the Spirit
Will guide you and protect from up here

Can you hear me, can you hear me running?
Can you hear me running, can you hear me calling you?
Can you hear me, can you hear me running?
Can you hear me running, can you hear me calling you?

Swear allegiance to the flag
Whatever flag they offer
Never hint at what you really feel
Teach the children quietly
For some day sons and daughters
Will rise up and fight while we stood still

Can you hear me, can you hear me running?
Can you hear me running, can you hear me calling you?
Can you hear me, can you hear me running?
Can you hear me running, can you hear me calling you?

Can you hear me running (can you hear me calling you?)
(Can you hear me) hear me calling you?
(Can you hear me running) hear me running babe?
(Can you hear me running) hear me running?
Calling you, calling you

The streets are lined with camera crews
Everywhere he goes is news
Today is different
Today is not the same
Today I make the action
Take snapshot into the light, snapshot into the light
I'm shooting into the light

Four miles down the cavalcade moves on
Driving into the sun
If I worked it out right
They won't see me or the gun

Two miles to go, they're clearing the road
The cheering has really begun
I've got my radio
I can hear what's going on

I've been waiting for this
I have been waiting for this
All you people in TV land
I will wake up your empty shells
Peak-time viewing blown in a flash
As I burn into your memory cells
'Cos I'm alive

They're coming 'round the corner with the bikers at the front
I'm wiping the sweat from my eyes
-It's a matter of time
-It's a matter of will
And the governor's car is not far behind
He's not the one I've got in mind
'Cos there he is-the man of the hour, standing in the limousine
"I don't really hate you
-I don't care what you do
We were made for each other
-Me and you
I want to be somebody
-You were like that too
If you don't get given you learn to take
And I will take you."

Holding my breath
Release the catch
And I let the bullet fly

All turned quiet-I have been here before
Lonely boy hiding behind the front door
Friends have all gone home
There's my toy gun on the floor
Come back Mum and Dad
You're growing apart
You know that I'm growing up sad
I need some attention
I shoot into the light

"Suffer Well" by Depeche Mode

Where were you when I fell from grace?
A frozen heart an empty space

Something's changed and it's in your eyes
Please don't speak you'll only lie

I found treasure not where I thought
Peace of mind can't be bought
Still I believe

Just hang on
Suffer well
Sometimes it's hard
It's hard to tell

An angel led me when I was blind
I said take me back I've changed my mind
Now I believe

From the blackest room I was torn
You called my name my love was born
So I believe

Just hang on
Suffer well
Sometimes it's hard
It's hard to tell

This is not the darkest one. I can't post the darkest one due to possible CoC violation. I will say, it's a kind of a revenge song, or karma song, and a VERY sinister take on Rotkappchen (Little Red Riding Hood) depending on your interpretation and the uncensored video is very gory and satisfying. It's an Oomph! song and it's off the last album.

Other than that song, this is the winner, though I believe it's based off German folklore:

Das Letzte Streichholz

Sie küsste sanft ihr liebstes Spielzeug
Bevor sie es zerbrach
Dann schlich sie sich voll dunkler Sehnsucht
Ins kalte Schlafgemach

Sie holte leis‚ das letzte Streichholz
Aus Vaters Schrank hervor
Warum hast du mir nie geholfen
Schrie sie in Mutters Ohr
Ich hoffe dass wir uns nie wieder sehen

Damit ihr wisst wie es ist in der Hölle zu sein
Damit ihr wisst wie es ist nach Erlösung zu schreien
Nur deshalb komm ich zurück
Mit flammendem Blick
Ich nehm das letzte Streichholz
Und verbrenne eure schöne heile Welt

Sie kochte sich die letzte Mahlzeit
Bevor sie sich erbrach
Dann spuckte sie voll tiefer Abschaum
Ins schwarze Schlafgemach
Ich hoffe dass wir uns nie wieder sehen

Damit ihr wisst wie es ist in der Hölle zu sein
Damit ihr wisst wie es ist nach Erlösung zu schreien
Nur deshalb komm ich zurück
Mit flammendem Blick
Ich nehm das letzte Streichholz
Und verbrenne eure schöne heile Welt

Wisst ihr jetzt wie die Hölle wirklich ist?
Wisst ihr jetzt wie die Hölle wirklich ist?
Wisst ihr dass euer Spiel zu Ende ist?
Wisst ihr dass eure Liebe tödlich ist?

Damit ihr wisst wie es ist in der Hölle zu sein
Damit ihr wisst wie es ist nach Erlösung zu schreien
Nur deshalb komm ich zurück
Mit flammendem Blick
Ich nehm das letzte Streichholz
Und verbrenne eure Welt

Damit ihr wisst wie es ist in der Hölle zu sein
Damit ihr wisst wie es ist nach Erlösung zu schreien
Nur deshalb komm ich zurück
Mit flammendem Blick
Ich nehm das letzte Streichholz
Und verbrenne eure schöne heile Welt

The Last Match (English Translation)

She kissed her favorite toy softly
Before she broke it
Then full of longing she tip-toed
Into the cold bedroom

She quietly took the last match
Out of Father's cabinet
Why did you never help me?
She screamed in Mother's ear
I hope we never meet again!

So that you know what it's like
To be in Hell
So that you know what it's like
To scream for redemption
So I'm just going to come back
With a burning gaze
I take the last match
And burn your beautiful perfect world

She cooks herself her last meal
Before she throws up
Then she spit full of deep loathing
Into the black bedroom

So that you know what it's like!

So that you know what it's like
To be in Hell
So that you know what it's like
To scream for redemption
So I'm just going to come back
With a burning gaze
I take the last match
And burn your beautiful perfect world

Do you know now, what Hell really is like?
Do you know now, what Hell really is like?
Do you know, that your game is over?
Do you know, that your love is deadly?

So that you know what it's like
To be in Hell
So that you know what it's like
To scream for redemption
So I'm just going to come back
With a burning gaze
I take the last match
And burn your beautiful perfect world

So that you know what it's like
To be in Hell
So that you know what it's like
To scream for redemption
So I'm just going to come back
With a burning gaze
I take the last match
And burn your beautiful perfect world

"Labyrinth" - Oomph! is close too. It's kind of a sinister take on Alice In Wonderland. The video is kinda frightening.

"Spieluhr" - Rammstein is kinda dark too. It's about during a part of the night, passers by to children's cemeteries can hear the sounds of toys being played with (Spieluhr is a child's toy), and the ghosts of the kids coming out to play. It's based off of a folklore story, though my German teacher told me one of her friends witnessed something like that actually happening.

The soundtrack from Manhunter, The Michael Mann '80's version of Red Dragon.

Some creepy songs when you listen to the words.


Father look in my eyes
See me as I really am
You made me
Now take me...

Tell me how it feels now
Behold you flesh has come of age
Forsake me, you break me...
Father!

Strong as I am
There's something about this thing that scares me
Strong as I Am
There's something about this thing that dares me
Strong as I Am
There's something about this thing that haunts me
Strong as I Am
There's something about this thing that taunts me

Mother let me heal you
Your pain has lasted far too long
Release it...it kills you
See me as I feel you
The love you would not share grows tierd of waiting

Strong as I am
There's something about this thing that scares me
Strong as I Am
There's something about this thing that dares me
Strong as I Am
There's something about this thing that haunts me
Strong as I Am
There's something about this thing that taunts me

Will I leave them? I say no.
They ask me, "Will you leave us?"...I say...no.

Oh, wait - I got another one...

Two days later, papa passed away
I became a man that day
So I told mama I was gonna quit school
But she said that was dad's strictest rule
So every morning 'fore I went to school
I fed the chickens, and I chopped wood too!

Sometimes I felt that I couldn't go on
I wanted to leave this, but I wanted a home
But I always remembered what my daddy said
With tears in his eyes on his dyin' bed
He said, "Patches, I'm depending on you, son
I tried to do my best, It's up to yeewww to do the rest...

But then one day a strong rain came, and washed all the crops away.
And at the age of thirteen, I thought I was carrying the weight of the whole world on my shoulders.

And you know, mama knew what I was going through, 'cause
Everyday I had to work the fields
'Cause that's the only way we got our meals
You see, I was the oldest of a family
And everybody else depended on me
Every night I heard my mama pray
Lord, give him the strength to face another day!

Neil Young - Powderfinger

Look out, Mama, there's a white boat comin' up the river
With a big red beacon, and a flag, and a man on the rail
I think you'd better call John,
'Cause it don't look like they're here to deliver the mail
And it's less than a mile away
I hope they didn't come to stay
It's got numbers on the side and a gun
And it's makin' big waves

Daddy's gone, my brother's out hunting in the mountains
Big John's been drinking since the river took Emmy-Lou
So the Powers That Be left me here to do the thinkin'
And I just turned twenty-two
I was wonderin' what to do
And the closer they got,
The more those feelings grew

Daddy's rifle in my hand felt reassurin'
He told me, Red means run, son, numbers add up to nothin'
But when the first shot hit the docks I saw it comin'
Raised my rifle to my eye
Never stopped to wonder why.
Then I saw black,
And my face splashed in the sky

Shelter me from the powder and the finger
Cover me with the thought that pulled the trigger
Think of me as one you'd never figured
Would fade away so young
With so much left undone
Remember me to my love,
I know I'll miss her

Old Crow Medicine Show - Tennessee Pusher

Out on the lonely highway
I'm riding your way
Tell your momma to bar the cabin door

Heading out on a short run
Just looking for someone
Who doesn't love me anymore

Tennessee pusher, Tennessee pusher, Tennessee pusher

Last night in the hollar
I made a thousand dollars
But I couldn't believe just what I saw

You were out in the moonlight
Until the break of daylight
Giving your love to the law

Tennessee pusher, Tennessee pusher, Tennessee pusher

Climbing up on the mountain
Heartbeat pounding
Reckless as a cyclone

You're the one that am after
But I am a wanted man for
Bringing it all back home

Now there's gunsmoke in the valley
Blood like jelly
As three crows circle a dead tree

One for the lover
One for the pusher
One for the deputy

Tennessee, Tennessee, Tennessee pusher
Tennessee pusher, Tennessee pusher, Tennessee pusher

He took a face from the ancient gallery
And he walked on down the hall
He went into the room where his sister lived, and...then he
Paid a visit to his brother, and then he
He walked on down the hall, and
And he came to a door...and he looked inside
Father, yes son, I want to kill you

Hollywood Undead - "Paradise Lost"

So watch my chest heave
as this last breath leaves me
I am trying to be
what you're dying to see

I feel like "F**k man,
can't take this, anymore,
this heart, break this."
This is life that's so thankless,
How could he just forsake us?

racist he makes us
hate us he gave us
nothing but no trust
and I am so f**ked up
So let this gun bind us
Lets hide by this lust
and once we are just dust
he'll know that he loved us

LET IT ALL BURN
I will burn first
God ive lied, am I lost in your eyes?

Just let me burn, it's what I deserve.
God of mine, am I lost in your eyes?

So take me and make me
weakened and save me
this hate that you gave me
keeps saying the same thing

to sing when you hurtin'
to sing when you cry
to sing when you livin'
to sing when you die

and here at the end
at the end of the hurt
all the pain ain't the same
when it's your turn to burn
We're the heart for the heartless,
the thoughts for the thoughtless,
the means for the end,
we're the gods of the deadless!

Let it all burn
I will burn first
God ive lied, am I lost in your eyes?

Just let me burn
It's what I deserve
God ive lied, am I lost in your eyes?

So cry 3 tears for me,
burning so good,
sing me this song

So cry 3 tears for me,
burning so good,
burning so good

I can not stand
who i am I'm this man
with this blood on my hands
in this blood I am damned
so watch my wings burn
as they burn in the fire
I'll scatter the ashes
now sing for the choir

Let it all burn,
I will burn first
God of time, am I lost in your eyes?

Just let me burn
it's what I deserve,
God of mine, am I lost in your eyes?

This hate that you gave me keeps saying
Just let me burn,
Just let me burn

This hate that you gave me keeps saying
Just let me burn,
Just let me burn

Burn
NOW
Burn

Just let me burn
NOW

Red Hot Chili Peppers - "Otherside"

How long, how long will I slide
Separate my side; I don't,
I don't believe it's bad
Slittin' my throat
it's all I ever...

I heard your voice through a photograph
I thought it up; it brought up the past
Once you know you can never go back
I've got to take it on the otherside

Centuries are what it meant to me
A cemetery where I marry the sea
Stranger things could never change my mind
I gotta take it on the otherside
Take it on the otherside
Take it on
Take it on

How long, how long will I slide
Separate my side; I don't,
I don't believe it's bad
Slittin my throat
it's all I ever...

Pour my life into a paper cup
The ashtray's full and I'm spillin' my guts
She wants to know am I still a slut
I've got to take it on the otherside

A scarlet starlet and she's in my bed
A candidate for my soul mate bled
I push the trigger and I pull the thread
I've got to take it on the otherside
Take it on the otherside
Take it on
Take it on

How long, how long will I slide
Separate my side; I don't,
I don't believe it's bad
Slittin' my throat
it's all I ever...

Turn me on, take me for a hard ride
Burn me out, leave me on the otherside
I yell and tell it that It's not my friend
I tear it down, I tear it down
And then it's born again

How long, how long will I slide
Separate my side; I don't,
I don't believe it's bad
Slittin' my throat
it's all I ever had (how long)
I don't,
I don't believe it's fair
Slittin' my throat
it's all I ever...

Rooster by Alice in Chains

Ain't Found A Way To
Kill Me Yet
Eyes Burn With Stinging
Sweat
Seems Every Path Leads Me To
Nowhere
Wife And Kids And Household Pet
Army Green Was No Safe Bet
The Bullets Scream To Me From Somewhere

Here They Come To Snuff The Rooster
Yeah Here Come The Rooster
You Know He Ain't Gonna Die

Walkin' Tall Machine Gun Man
They Spit On Me In My Homeland
Gloria Sent Me Pictures
Of My Boy
Got My Pills 'Gainst
Mosquito Death
My Buddy's Breathin'
His Dyin' Breath
Oh God Please Won't You Help
Me Make It Through

I was going to say anything by Cannibal Corpse, but I don't think that really counts.

I'll vote for "River Runs Red" by Life of Agony. Not necessarily the song, but the entire CD. Pretty dark.

If I want to listen to something dark, I'll play Alice in Chains. I always have found Nutshell from the Alice in Chains unplugged show to be pretty haunting.

Nutshell
We chase misprinted lies
We face the path of time
And yet I fight
And yet I fight
This battle all alone
No one to cry to
No place to call home

Oooh...oooh...
Oooh...oooh...

My gift of self is raped
My privacy is raked
And yet I find
And yet I find
Repeating in my head
If I cant be my own
Id feel better dead

Oooh...oooh...
Oooh...oooh...

The entire unplugged show was great. Best band of the 90's IMO

I was going to say Fade to Black, but I realized that I regularly listen to, like, half the songs already mentioned. I love Disturbed, Rammstein, Oomph!, Avenged Sevenfold, Stone Temple Pilots... I'm actually a really cheerful guy, honest!

Actually, Fade to Black probably is the darkest one I listen to.

A live version

Life it seems, will fade away
Drifting further every day
Getting lost within myself
Nothing matters no one else
I have lost the will to live
Simply nothing more to give
There is nothing more for me
Need the end to set me free
Things are not what they used to be
Missing one inside of me
Deathly lost, this can't be real
Cannot stand this hell I feel
Emptiness is filing me
To the point of agony
Growing darkness taking dawn
I was me, but now He's gone

No one but me can save myself, but it to late
Now I can't think, think why I should even try

Yesterday seems as though it never existed
Death Greets me warm, now I will just say good-bye

I've always found this to be one of the more compelling songs out there - love how it builds and builds and then bottoms out - very suspenseful - even reading the lyrics is intense - which is unusual. Great song writing. Gabriel seems to write terrific stuff or total crap - no in-between.

I'm shooting into the light

Four miles down the cavalcade moves on
Driving into the sun
If I worked it out right
They won't see me or the gun

Two miles to go, they're clearing the road
The cheering has really begun
I've got my radio
I can hear what's going on

I've been waiting for this
I have been waiting for this
All you people in TV land
I will wake up your empty shells
Peak-time viewing blown in a flash
As I burn into your memory cells
'Cos I'm alive

They're coming 'round the corner with the bikers at the front
I'm wiping the sweat from my eyes
-It's a matter of time
-It's a matter of will
And the governor's car is not far behind
He's not the one I've got in mind
'Cos there he is-the man of the hour, standing in the limousine
"I don't really hate you
-I don't care what you do
We were made for each other
-Me and you
I want to be somebody
-You were like that too
If you don't get given you learn to take
And I will take you."

Holding my breath
Release the catch
And I let the bullet fly

All turned quiet-I have been here before
Lonely boy hiding behind the front door
Friends have all gone home
There's my toy gun on the floor
Come back Mum and Dad
You're growing apart
You know that I'm growing up sad
I need some attention
I shoot into the light

"Family Snapshot" Peter Gabriel

Sweet Blood Call by Louisiana Red.

I have a hard time missing you baby, with my pistol in your mouth
Mmmm have a hard time missing you baby, with my pistol in your mouth
You may be thinking 'bout going north, but your brains are staying south

Just roll your pretty eyes, if you intend to stay
Just roll your pretty eyes, if you intend to stay
Close 'em up again, and I blow your world away

I see your eyes are rollin'
Must mean your love for me has come back
Must mean you're satisfied again
With our little wooden country shack
I have a hard time missing you baby, with my pistol in your mouth
You may be thinking about going north woman, but your brains are staying south

Even if you sneak away
I'll find you before nightfall
You're tied to me girl
I can feel your sweetblood call
Even if you sneak away
I'll find you before nightfall
Caused you are tied to me girl
I can feel your sweetblood call

Not sure it's the darkest, but it fits some of the ones posted so far:

http://vids.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=vids.individual&videoid=626711717

All eyes look up to me
High above the filthy streets
Heed no bullhorn when it calls
Watch me fly and die, watch me fall

I'm the boy they can't ignore,
For the first time in my life, I'm sure
All the love sent up high to pledge
Won't reach the ledge

Wind blows cold from the west
I smell coffee, I smell doughnuts for the press
A girl that I knew once years ago
Is tryin' to be reached on the phone

I'm the boy she can't ignore,
for the first time in my life, I'm sure
All the love sent up high to pledge...

(Repeat)

Priest kneels silent, all is still
Policeman reaches from the sill
Watch him try to try his best
There'll be no medal pinned to his chest

I'm the boy they couldn't ignore,
for the first time in my life, I'm sure

(Repeat)

I'm the boy for the last time in my life

All the love that they pledge
For the last time will not reach the ledge

Down in a Hole, Rain when I Die, Sea of Sorrow by Alice in Chains

My Own Prison



A court is in session, a verdict is in
No appeal on the docket today
just my own sin
The walls are cold and pale
The cage made of steel
Screams fill the room
Alone I drop and kneel
Silence now the sound
My breath the only motion around
Demons cluttering around
My face showing no emotion
Shackled by my sentence
Expecting no return
Here there is no penance
My skin begins to burn
So I held my head up high
Hiding hate that burns inside
Which only fuels their selfish pride
We're all held captive
Out from the sun
A sun that shines on only some
We the meek are all in one
I hear a thunder in the distance
See a vision of a cross
I feel the pain that was given
On that sad day of loss
A lion roars in the darkness
Only he holds the key
A light to free me from my burden
And grant me Life eternally
Should have been dead
On a sunday morning
Banging my head
No time for mourning
Ain't got no time
So I held my head up high
Hiding hate that burns inside
Which only fuels their selfish pride
We're all held captive
Out from the sun
A sun that shines only some
We the meek are all in one
I cry out to God
Seeking only his decision
Gabriel stands and confirms
I've created my own prison

It's not a "song," but mine would definitely be The Rite of Spring by Igor Stravinski. It's extremely dark and violent (after all, it's about an ancient Russian pagan ritual where an adolescent girl is forced to dance herself to death to please the gods of spring), but I absolutely love it.
