Here goes klaus nomi's last performance to his home crowd,
just before his death of aids at age 39. Thank you harry for turning
me on to this amazing artist.

what power art thou
who from below
hast made me rise
unwillingly and slow
from beds of everlasting snow

see'st thou not
how stiff, how stiff
and wondrous old
far far far far unfit
to bear the bitter cold

I can scarcely move
or draw my breath
let me let me let me
freeze again to death

the cold song by henry purcell
