As silver tears they weave and lace,
Sad patterns upon her face,
She waits for you.
So low below a laser sun,
Through velvet fields she runs,
Reaching for you.

Did you play it, fange? Certainly fits the description.

And in a similar collagist spirit, I should have nominated Olivia Tremor Control's Green Typewriters suite from Dusk at Cubist Castle

It was just the first NWW track that sprang to mind. I do love it though, there's so few songs that are sonically funny, rather than lyrically, and this cracks me up.

Contains the only guitar solo that makes Jimmy Page sound as fluent as Julian Bream.
