This is an extract from the song 'I See A Darkness' by Bonnie 'Prince' Billy.

and you know I have a drive
to live I won't let go
but can you see its opposition
comes a-rising up sometimes
that it's dreadful and position
comes blacking in my mind

I'm not sure if this is actually an example of what I'm talking about, but is there a technique where two words are in a switched position e.g. 'and black is positioning in my mind'?
