Blaise Bailey Finnegan III

Does anyone remember Gihm? The Japanese guy with a hidden face? This talent was unsettling in its greatness. It guaranteed a rush of blood to your head, moving as fast as a headless chicken or an army of suicidal lemmings*.

As for the original, which is of course an astounding piece of music, and very possibly Godspeed's best, it should put an end to the rumour that the post-punk band has no sense of humour. If the inclusion of Iron Maiden's poem is not a stroke of comic genius, I don't know what is.  

*A myth, a story, but a beautiful one.
