More News from Nowhere

Nick Cave and the bad seeds

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 sh*t 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
