    The Happyfolk and Srange People

    Once upon a time at the foot of a great mountain,
    there was a town where the people known as Happyfolk lived,
    their very existence a mystery to the rest of the world,
    obscured as it was by great clouds.
    Here they played out their peaceful lives,
    innocent of the litany of excess and violence that was growing in the world below.
    To live in harmony with the spirit of the mountain called Monkey was enough.
    Then one day Strangefolk arrived in the town.
    They came in camouflage, hidden behind dark glasses, but no one noticed them: they only saw shadows.
    You see, without the Truth of the Eyes, the Happyfolk were blind.

    In time, Strangefolk found their way into the high reaches of the mountain,
    and it was there that they found the caves of unimaginable Sincerity and Beauty.
    By chance, they stumbled upon the Place Where All Good Souls Come to Rest.
    The Strangefolk, they coveted the jewels in these caves above all things,
    and soon they began to mine the mountain, its rich seam fueling the chaos of their own world.
    Meanwhile, down in the town, the Happyfolk slept restlessly,
    their dreams invaded by shadowy figures digging away at their souls.
    Every day, people would wake and stare at the mountain.
    Why was it bringing darkness into their lives?
    And as the Strangefolk mined deeper and deeper into the mountain,
    holes began to appear, bringing with them a cold and bitter wind that chilled the very soul of them up.
    For the first time, the Happyfolk felt fearful for they knew that soon the Monkey would soon stir from its deep sleep.
    And then came a sound. Distant first, it grew into castrophany so immense it could be heard far away in space.
    There were no screams. There was no time.
    The mountain called Monkey had spoken.
    There was only fire.
    And then, nothing.

    Something sort of similar...

    One Tin Soldier by Coven (and sung by Joan Baez too.)

    Listen, children, to a story
    That was written long ago
    'Bout a kingdom on a mountain
    And the valley folk below
    On the mountain was a treasure
    Buried deep beneath a stone
    And the valley people swore
    They'd have it for their very own

    Go ahead and hate your neighbor
    Go ahead and cheat a friend
    Do it in the name of Heaven
    You can justify it in the end
    There won't be any trumpets blowing
    Come the judgment day
    On the bloody morning after who...
    One tin soldier rides away

    So, the people of the valley
    Sent a message up the hill
    Asking for the buried treasure,
    Tons of gold for which they'd kill
    Came an answer from the kingdom,
    "With our brothers, we will share
    All the secrets of our mountain,
    All the riches buried there"

    Now, the valley cried with anger,
    "Mount your horses, draw your sword!"
    And they killed the mountain people
    So, they won their just reward
    Now, they stood beside the treasure
    On the mountain dark and red
    Turn the stone and looks beneath it...
    "Peace on Earth" was all it said

    Go ahead and hate your neighbor
    Go ahead and cheat a friend
    Do it in the name of Heaven
    You can justify it in the end
    There won't be any trumpets blowing
    Come the judgment day
    On the bloody morning after who...
    One tin soldier rides away

    Go ahead and hate your neighbor
    Go ahead and cheat a friend
    Do it in the name of Heaven
    You can justify it in the end
    There won't be any trumpets blowing
    Come the judgment day
    On the bloody morning after who...
    One tin soldier rides away

    I believe that Art thief is quoting from a Gorillaz album. The purpose of which, eludes me somewhat. Perhaps all will become clear, later in the thread.
