Wide eyed, grinning in the darkened room
Sipping cactus brandy from a china spoon
Coming in the morning, in the afternoon, forgetting
So tired waiting for the end to come
Fully dead already but forever young,
Hello, my dearest father it's your favorite son
There's some things that I'm regretting

I am destroyer, I am lover, I am destroyer, I am lover
I love one thing, destroy the other. I am destroyer, I am lover.

A gypsy told my fortune and I told her hers
I said you'll die high in the mountains wrapped in silver furs
You'll be looking for your lover in the midnight sun and you'll perish for your lover when the frost has begun.
I have a way of seeing and it's nearly gone, and nobody was listening so I wrote this song
And when you know the chorus, you can sing along
you destroy the things you love, even though

I am destroyer, I am lover. I am destroyer, I am lover
Why love one thing and not the other?
I am destroyer, i am lover

I am destroyer, I am lover
I am destroyer, I am lover
Why love one thing and not the other?
I am destroyer, i am lover

I am destroyer, I am lover
I am destroyer, I am lover
and when I kiss, I like to smother
I am destroyer, I am lover

Perfect, wow. You couldn't have picked a better song to go with the episode; it all clicked for me the minute we saw the different words on Amy's hands, and just. Wow.

Lovely video. You are very skilled at making vids, y'know. :) And I hadn't seen the prequel - thanks for the link!

I love the parallels you draw here, especially in the clip choices for the chorus.

Still haven't seen the episode so I'm not going to watch the vid yet, but I LOVE THIS SONG and it's actually making it hard for me not to watch the vid. Obviously the choice is to listen to it on my iPod.

Love this!! I'm so impressed you made such a high-quality vid in less than a week.

Still dying to know what's up with Oswin looking at the camera. Loved how you used that moment here.

Oh VERY cool! I realised suddenly that your story about Oswin uploading herself into the TARDIS had nestled itself into my brain next to canon when I was waiting to see that bit in this vid.

This is great! The song choice is perfect, and it's amazing that you were able to get such a complete vid out of a single episode.

That was so cool! The Oswin bits in particular worked incredibly well with the song.
