Song by Nick Cave<br /><br>

Take a little walk to the edge of town <br>

Go across the tracks <br>

Where the viaduct looms, <br>

like a bird of doom <br>

As it shifts and cracks <br>

Where secrets lie in the border fires, <br>

in the humming wires <br>

Hey man, you know <br>

you're never coming back <br>

Past the square, past the bridge, <br>

past the mills, past the stacks <br>

On a gathering storm comes <br>

a tall handsome man <br>

In a dusty black coat with <br>

a red right hand<br>


He'll wrap you in his arms, <br>

tell you that you've been a good boy <br>

He'll rekindle all the dreams <br>

it took you a lifetime to destroy <br>

He'll reach deep into the hole, <br>

heal your shrinking soul <br>

But there won't be a single thing <br>

That you can do. <br>

He's a god, he's a man, <br>

he's a ghost, he's a guru <br>

They're whispering his name <br>

through this disappearing land <br>

But hidden in his coat <br>

is a red right hand<br>


You ain't got no money? <br>

He'll get you some <br>

You ain't got no car? <br>

He'll get you one <br>

You ain't have no self-respect, <br>

you feel like an insect <br>

Well don't you worry buddy, <br>

cause here he comes <br>

Through the ghettos and the barrio <br>

and the bowery and the slum <br>

A shadow is cast wherever he stands <br>

Stacks of green paper in his <br>

red right hand<br>


(Organ solo)<br>


You'll see him in your nightmares, <br>

you'll see him in your dreams <br>

He'll appear out of nowhere but <br>

he ain't what he seems <br>

You'll see him in your head, <br>

on the TV screen <br>

And hey buddy, I'm warning <br>

you to turn it off <br>

He's a ghost, he's a god, <br>

he's a man, he's a guru <br>

You're one microscopic cog <br>

in his catastrophic plan <br>

Designed and directed by <br>

his red right hand<br>


(Organ solo)<br>
