Breugel's Triumph of Death & Cat Power's Cherokee

I was listening to music while writing about Pieter Breugel the Elders' The Triumph of Death. They seemed to contrast well together. Here they are - some details annotated with Cherokee lyrics.

The masses being driven into a coffin: "Never knew pain like this, everything die, then die... bury me."

"Bury me, marry me to the sky" 

"The wind, moon the earth, the sky, Sky so high. Never knew pain like this, everything die" 

Lovers oblivious in the corner "Never knew love like this... Feels like time is on my time... Cherokee, kissing me, When I'm on my way down"

"Bury me upside down"
