Babelfishing Poetry: "Two Candles At Any Time"

Babelfishing Poetry: "Two Candles At Any Time"


Hey peeps, once again here's more Babelfishing poetry, where I take song lyrics, run them through an on-line translator such as (but not necessarily) Babelfish, tweak the punctuation a bit, and wind up with a quirky kind of poem.

This weeks it's indie rockers Band of Horses' mournful song "The Funeral" (watch video here).  Enjoy. 


Two Candles At Any Time

That's a sweater.
Show her the wrong feelings.
It was hard for us to be surprised.
Learn to read your sins.

Call the Sun.
So I was in the morning.
The liquor store is just for us.
I know how to sleep.
I know all the hunters.

Open; rotate left.
There is no tree management.

Sometimes I get ready.
Every time the musician sings,
every time you set the music.
Two candles at any time.
