Nick Cave

Nick Cave - Night of the Lotus Eaters

rate me

Sapped and stupid I lie upon the stones and I swoons

The darlig little dandelions have done their thing and changed from suns into moons

The dragons roam the shopping malls, I hear they're gonna eat our guts

If I had the strength I might pick up my sword and make some attempt to resist

Get ready to shield yourself

Grab your sap and your heaters

Get ready to shield yourself

On the night of the lotus eaters

Mmm, don't you love my baby

Mmm, and don't you love my baby anymore

They gilded my scales, they fish-bowled me and they toured me round the old aquariums

They come in their hordes to tap at the glass, the philistines and barbarians

I like floating here, it's nice, they've hung seaweed around my hips

And I do the hula for the hungry ones and the lames all throw me tips

Get ready to shield yourself

Grab your sap and your heaters

Get ready to shield yourself

On the night of the lotus eaters

Mmm, don't you love my baby

Mmm, and don't you love my baby anymore

Get ready to shield yourself

From our catastrophic leaders

Get ready to shield yourself

Grab your sap and your heaters

On the night of the lotus eaters

Now hit the streets!

Now hit the streets!
