Excerpt from TJ Lane's facebook posting that drew some media attention 

I'm on the lamb but I ain't no sheep. I am Death. And you have always 
been the sod. So repulsive and so odd. You never even deserved the 
presence of God, and yet, I am here. Around your cradle I plod. Came on 
foot, without shod. How improper, how rude. However, they shall not mind 
the mud on my feet if there is blood on your sheet. Now! Feel death, not 
just mocking you. Not just stalking you but inside of you. Wriggle and 
writhe. Feel smaller beneath my might. Seizure in the Pestilence that is 
my scythe. Die, all of you.

Just one song title, but still.  It caught my eye.  Good thing he didn't 
quote Don't Fear the Reaper or journalists would have recognized it and 
might have blamed BOC for inspiring high school shootings, a la Marilyn 
Manson and Columbine.
