Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds - More News From Nowhere

rate me

<BR>

I walk into the corner of my room, see my friends in high places<br>

I don't know which is which and whom is whom, they've stolen each other's faces<br>

Janet is there with her high-hatting hair full of bedroom feathers<br>

Janet is known to make dead men groan in any kind of weathers<br>

I crawl over to her, I say hey baby, I say hey Janet<br>

You are the one, you are the sun and I'm your dutyfull planet<br>

But she ain't down with any of that, she's heard that shit before<br>

I say ah ha, oh yeah, you're right, cause I see Betty X standing by the door<br>

With more news from nowhere<br>

More news from nowhere<br>

And it's getting strange in here<br>

Yeah, it gets stranger every year<br>

More news from nowhere<br>

More news from nowhere<br>

<br>

Now, Betty X is like Betty Y minus that fatal chromosome<br>

Her hair is like the wine dark sea, on which sailors come home<br>

I say hey baby, I say hey Betty X (I lean close up to her throat)<br>

This light you're carrying is like a lamp, hanging from a distant boat<br>

It is my light, said Betty X, Betty X says this light ain't yours<br>

And so much wind blew through her words that I went rolling down the hall<br>

For more news from nowhere<br>

More news from nowhere<br>

And it's getting strange in here<br>

Yeah, it gets stranger every year<br>

More news from nowhere<br>

More news from nowhere<br>

<br>

I turn another corner, I go down a corridor and I see this guy<br>

He must be about 100 foot tall and he only has one eye<br>

He asks me for my autograph, I write nobody and then<br>

I wrap myself up in my woolly coat and blind him with my pen<br>

Cause someone must have put something in my drink, everything getting strange looking<br>

Half the people had turned into squealing pigs, the other half were cooking<br>

Let me out of here, I cried, and I went pushing past<br>

And I saw miss Polly singing with some girls, I cried strap me to the mast<br>

For more news from nowhere<br>

More news from nowhere<br>

And it's getting strange in here<br>

Yeah, it gets stranger every year<br>

More news from nowhere<br>

More news from nowhere<br>

<br>

Then a black girl with no clothes on danced across the room<br>

We charted the progress of the planets around that boogie-wongie moon<br>

I called her my nubian princess, I gave her some sweet-back bad-ass jive<br>

I spent the next seven years between her legs pining for my wife<br>

But by and by it all went wrong, I felt all washed-up on the shore<br>

She stared down at me from up in the storm as I sobbed upon the floor<br>

For more news from nowhere<br>

More news from nowhere<br>

And don't it make you feel alone<br>

Don't it make you wanna get right-on home<br>

More news from nowhere<br>

More news from nowhere<br>

<br>

Here comes Alina with two black eyes, she's given herself a transfusion<br>

She's filled herself with panda blood to avoid all the confusion<br>

I said the sun rises and falls with you, and various things about love<br>

But a rising violence in me cut all my circuits off<br>

Well, Alina, she starts screaming, her cheeks are full of psychotropic leaves<br>

Her extinction was nearly absolute when she turned her back on me<br>

For more news from nowhere<br>

More news from nowhere<br>

And it's getting strange in here<br>

Yeah, it gets stranger every year<br>

More news from nowhere<br>

More news from nowhere<br>

<br>

I bumped bang crash into Deanna hanging pretty in the door frame<br>

Alle the horrors which have befallen me, well, Deanna is to blame<br>

Every time I see you, babe, you make me feel so all alone<br>

And I wept my face into her dress long after she'd gone home<br>

With more news from nowhere<br>

More news from nowhere<br>

And don't it make you feel alone<br>

Don't it make you wanna get right back home<br>

More news from nowhere<br>

More news from nowhere<br>

<br>

Don't it make you feel so sad, don't the blood rush to your feet<br>

To think that everything you do today, tomorrow is obsolete?<br>

Technology and women and little children too<br>

Don't it make you feel blue? Don't it make you feel blue?<br>

For more news from nowhere<br>

More news from nowhere<br>

And don't it make you feel alone<br>

Don't it make you wanna get right back home<br>

More news from nowhere<br>

More news from nowhere<br>

<br>

Well, I've gotta say<br>

Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye<br>
