I Have A Special Plan For This World 

Current 93 & Thomas Ligotti

There are no means for escaping this world
It penetrates even into your sleep
And is his substance
You are caught in your own dreaming
Where there is no space
And a hell forever where there is no time
You can’t do nothing you aren’t told to do
There is no hope for escape from this dream
That was never yours
The very words you speak are only its very words
And you talk like a traitor
Under its incessant torture

18 de marzo de 1869. … la conjuración universal para ocultar la tristeza de este mundo, para dar colores a la espantosa máscara de la realidad.
(…)
Nos alimentamos más de ilusión que de verdad. Cada uno devora la madeja de sus esperanzas engañosas, y cuando ha terminado, se cruza de brazos para morir y deja a sus hijos y nietos la tarea de que repitan la experiencia. Así perseguimos la dicha, y así se nos esquiva la dicha.
