Fearful Day 14: The Birthday Party "The Friend Catcher"

The Birthday Party's songs aren't necessarily always about depression and death, but a lot of them are.

In fact, the lyrics of this song aren't about depression and death at all - they're about something as mundane as smoking a cigarette, believe it or not - but the overall mood of this song is still dark and doomy nonetheless. It's like they can't help it.

And btw, I can easily see this song playing in one of the rooms in your backyard black plastic Haunted House. Something to consider.
