I prefer the original Pink Fairies version in all other respects except for the opening, uh, "line" here:

He came dancing across the water
With his galleons and guns
Looking for the new world
And that palace in the sun.

I don't know just where I'm going
But I'm gonna try for the kingdom if I can.

Tell Automatic Slim,
Tell Razor Totin' Jim,
Tell Butcher Knife Totin' Annie,
Tell Fast Talking Fanny.

Drop out of life with bong in hand
Follow the smoke toward the riff-filled land.

I saw mushroom head
Well, I saw mushroom head
Well, I saw mushroom head
I was born and I was dead
I was born and I was dead.

Pink press threat!

Thanks! I'm glad someone appreciates my perspective, and my ample eyebrows.

Howard Phillips Lovecraft, heaven knows, had a talent for writing which was of no mean proportion: only what he did with this talent was a shame, and a caution and an eldritch horror. If he'd only gotten the hell out of his aunties' attic and obtained a job with the federal writer's project of the WPA, he could have turned out guidebooks that would have been classics and joys to read forever. Only he stayed up there muffled up to the tip of his long gaunt New England chin against the cold which lay more in his heart than in his thermometer, living on 19 cents' worth of beans a day, rewriting (for pennies) the crappy manuscripts of writers whose complete illiteracy would have been a boon to all mankind, ah, but life is a boon, and producing ghastly, grisly, ghoulish, and horrifying works of his own as well -- of man-eating things which foraged in graveyards, of human/beastie crosses which grew beastlier and beastlier as they grew older, of gibbering Shoggoths and Elder beings which smelt real bad and were always trying to break through thresholds and take over; rugous, squamous, amorphous nasties abbetted by thin, gaunt New England eccentrics who dwelt in attics and who eventually were never seen or heard from again. Serve them damn well right, I say. In short, Howard was a twitch, boys and girls, and that's all there is to it.

Not really lyrically but the opening vocal salvo of First to Know by Faith No More kills me every time.
