Nick Cave - More News From Nowhere

rate me

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

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

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

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

I crawl over to her, I say hey baby, I say hey Janet

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

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

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

With more news from nowhere

More news from nowhere

And it's getting strange in here

Yeah, it gets stranger every year

More news from nowhere

More news from nowhere

Now, Betty X is like Betty Y minus that fatal chromosome

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

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

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

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

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

For more news from nowhere

More news from nowhere

And it's getting strange in here

Yeah, it gets stranger every year

More news from nowhere

More news from nowhere

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

For more news from nowhere

More news from nowhere

And it's getting strange in here

Yeah, it gets stranger every year

More news from nowhere

More news from nowhere

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

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

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

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

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

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

For more news from nowhere

More news from nowhere

And don't it make you feel alone

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

More news from nowhere

More news from nowhere

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

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

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

But a rising violence in me cut all my circuits off

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

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

For more news from nowhere

More news from nowhere

And it's getting strange in here

Yeah, it gets stranger every year

More news from nowhere

More news from nowhere

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

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

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

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

With more news from nowhere

More news from nowhere

And don't it make you feel alone

Don't it make you wanna get right back home

More news from nowhere

More news from nowhere

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

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

Technology and women and little children too

Don't it make you feel blue? Don't it make you feel blue?

For more news from nowhere

More news from nowhere

And don't it make you feel alone

Don't it make you wanna get right back home

More news from nowhere

More news from nowhere

Well, I've gotta say

Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye
