[Writing] music inspiration  
I am kind of in love with this song right now: Ludo "The Horror of Our Love" (youtube link)



I'm a killer, cold and wrathful.
Silent sleeper, I've been inside your bedroom.
I've murdered half the town,
Left you love notes on their headstones,
I'll fill the graveyards until I have you.
Moonlight walking, I smell your softness,
Carnivorous and lusting to track you down among the pines.
I want you stuffed into my mouth,
Hold you down and tear you open, live inside you - love, I'd never hurt you,
But I'll grind against your bones until our marrows mix,
I will eat you slowly.

Oh, the horror of our love.
Never so much blood pulled through my veins.
Oh, the horror of our love. Never so much blood.

I wake in terror, blackbirds screaming.
Dark cathedrals spilling midnight on their altars.
I'm your servant, my immortal,
Pale and perfect, such unholy heaving.
The statues close their eyes, the room is changing.
Break my skin and drain me.
Ancient language, speak through fingers,
the awful edges where you end and I begin.
Inside your mouth, I cannot see.
There's catastrophe in everything I'm touching.
As I sweat and crush you,
And I hold your beating chambers until they beat no more.
You die like angels sing.

Oh, the horror of our love.
Never so much blood pulled through my veins.
Oh. The horror of our love. Never so much blood.

You're a ghost, love, nightgown flowing,
Your body blue and walking along the continental shelf.
You are a dream among the sharks,
Beautiful and terrifying, lit and restless.
We dance in dark suspension,
And you bury me in the ocean floor beneath you
Where they'll never hear us scream.

Oh, the horror of our love.
Never so much blood pulled through my veins.
Oh. The horror of our love. Never so much blood.


It's a form of love, twisty and dark and cruel and dangerous, which is probably why I love it for some of the characters I write.

I <3 everything about LUDO. When I saw them in concert last month, for that song everyone left the stage except for the lead singer whose name is escaping me at the moment. He sang it alone, just him and his guitar.

I don't think I've heard LUDO before now, though I am going to track down more music after finals. Seeing this live would be amazing! I'm so glad you had the opportunity!
