Spark 2.

Lyrical one this week as it saves me having to find a screencap.

*clicks shuffle on playlist*

Rain King - Counting Crows.


When I think of heaven (Deliver me in a black-winged bird)
I think of flying down into a sea of pens and feathers
and all other instruments of faith and sex and God
In the belly of a black-winged bird
Don't try to feed me
I've been here before and I deserve a little more

I belong in the service of the Queen
I belong anywhere but in between
She's been crying I've been thinking
And I am the Rain King

Mama, why am I so alone?
I can't go outside
I'm scared I might not make it home
I'm alive but I'm sinking in
If there's anyone at home at your place
Why don't you invite me in
Don't try to bleed me
I've been there before and I deserve a little more

I belong in the service of the Queen
I belong anywhere but in between
She's been lying
I've been sinking
And I am the Rain King

Hey, I only want the same as anyone
Henderson is waiting for the sun
Oh, it seems night endlessly begins and ends
After all the dreaming I come home again...

When I think of heaven (Deliver me in a black-winged bird)
I think of dying Lay me down in a field of flame and heather
Render up my body into the burning heart of God in the belly of a black-winged bird
Don't try to bleed me
I've been here before and I deserve a little more

I belong in the service of the Queen
I belong anywhere but in between
She's been dying
I been drinking and I am the Rain King.


Hopefully there's a lyric there for everyone! A quote from the song must appear on the icon (even if it's only a couple of words, or unreadable.)

Briefly: I'm save the entries to my photobucket account each week, just so you know where they're going. I'm not posting them anywhere but here. If you could save your icons as yourusername_spark(no) that would be really helpful - it's not a big deal renaming them atm, but as we get more entries (which we *will* be doing... right guys? :P) it'll be more time-consuming. And more likely I'll forget who's is who. If you enter more than one icon, yourusername_spark2_a (b,c etc). Thanks guys!

Entries open until 8pm(GMT) Friday 3rd September.

Don't forget to vote on last weeks entries - voting open until 8pm(GMT) Tuesday 31st August.

(Also of this of course depends on my internet connection behaving itself this week. Gah! Stupid thing.)

Right. Go! Create!
