SONG OF THE DAY: #19 RUSTY CAGE (YOUTUBER)

Rusty Cage is a multi-instrumental DYI singer/songwriter from Gainesville, Florida who build his audience through recording original and cover songs from his home and posting videos of him performing them on YouTube. His songs often include layering instruments over one another to create a rich and full sound capable of making listeners favor his cover songs over the original artist’s version. The diverse blend of genres explored through his music has captivated a fan base of every demographic.

On November 13th, Rusty Cage released his much-anticipated second album entitled “Heretics”, which serves as a follow up to the 2011 EP “Blues, Gospels, and Whathaveyous”. This 8-track album has a runtime of approx. 43 minutes and is available on iTunes, Bandcamp, and other online distributors. Rusty Cage is responsible for a youtube hype called ‘the knife game song’ which has been dubbed as ‘the internet’s most dangerous game’ which actually isn’t all that hard to perform and isn’t that dangerous as it has been described. After his YouTube video “The Knife Game Song” became a viral Internet success, widespread attention to his other videos and original songs soon followed. The fans demanded more, prompting the production and release of “Heretics”. His goal as he describes it is to bring despair and sorrow to the listeners until they give up on the happiness of life the way he has, but I actually think that he means this as a joke because Rusty Cage as far as I have experienced loves dark sided humor. His music genres are occult folk, Indi-hop, and devil blues.

I couldn’t find all that much about Rusty Cage and the reasons for his songs so here are the lyrics of The Hearse song:

Don’t ever laugh as a hearse goes by
For you may be the next to die

They wrap you up in bloody sheets
To drop you 6 feet underneath
They put you in a pinewood box
And cover you up with dirt and rocks
It all goes well for about a week
And then your coffin begins to leak

And the worms crawl in, the worms crawl out
The worms play pinochle on your snout
They eat your eyes, they eat your nose
As you begin to decompose

A slimy beetle with demons eyes troughs your stomach and out your sides
Your stomach turns in rancid grease
And pus pours out like melted cheese
You spread it on a slice of bread
And that’s what you’ll eat when you are dead

And the worms crawl out, the worms crawl in
The worms that crawl in are lean and thin
The ones that crawl out are fat and stout
Your eyes fall in and your hair falls out

Your brain turns into maggot pie
Your liver starts to liquify
And for the living, all is well
As you sink further into hell

And the flames rise up to drag you down
Into the fire where you will drought
Your skin melts off as you descend
And Satan tares you limb from limb
Your suffering will never end

And the worms crawl in, the worms crawl out
They’ll eat your guts and then shit them out
And when your bones begin to rot
The worms remain but you do not

So don’t ever laugh as a hearse goes by
For someday, you will be the one to die
And when death brings his cold despair
Ask yourself will anyone care

May we meet again!
