A companion volume to Songs for the Lost.
Ballads to the Burning Twins
The Complete Song Lyrics of the Deathray Bradburys
by Alexander Zelenyj and Elizabeth Walker
Their identities remain unknown. Their whereabouts, as well as that of their 225 followers who disappeared alongside them, remain unknown.
Their songs – of suicide and transcendence, pain and hope, myth and religion, violence and peace, innocence and evil, death and rebirth – will live forever.
They are the most infamous cult band in the history of rock and roll, and they may be much more than merely this: the legendary underground punk group the Deathray Bradburys who, along with 225 of their fanatical followers, disappeared from the face of the Earth as part of the fulfillment of a self-prescribed cosmic prophecy.
These are their collected lyrics, their message of peace and their promise to the damaged and heartbroken, of escape from a dark and threatening world.
There is a place
Far beyond all of this despair
We promise you, friends:
There is a place for us all.
