Nick Cave - More news from nowhere (para combater a puta da pandemia)

Sexta-feira, 03.04.20

I walk into the corner of my room
see my friends in high places
I dont know which is which or who is whom
theyve stolen each others faces
Janet is there w/ her hi-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
& I’m yr dutiful planet–
but she aint down w/ any of that
shes heard that shit before
I say –ah ha o yeah youre right
cause I see Betty X standing by the door
w/ more news from nowhere
more news from nowhere
& its 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 are carrying is like a lamp
hanging from a distant boat
–It is my light– said Betty X
Betty X says –this light aint yours!!!
& so much wind blew through her words
that I went rolling down the hall
for more news from nowhere
more news from nowhere
& its 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
& I see this guy
he must be about 100 foot tall
& he only has one eye
he asks me for my autograph
I write –nobody– & then
I wrap myself up in my woolly coat
& blind him w/ my pen
cause someone must of stuck something in my drink
everything was getting strange looking
1/2 the people had turned into squealing pigs
that the other 1/2 were cooking
–let me out of here!!!– I cried
& I went pushing past
& I saw Miss Polly!!! singing with some girls
I cried, –strap me to the mast!!!!!–
for more news from nowhere
more news from nowhere
its getting strange in here
& it gets stranger every year
more news from nowhere
more news from nowhere
then a black girl w/ no clothes on
danced across the room
we charted the progress of the planets
around that boogie-woogie moon
I called her my nubian princess
I gave her some sweet-back bad-ass jive
I spent the next seven yrs 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
& dont it make you feel alone
& dont it make you wanna get right-on home
more news from nowhere
more news from nowhere
here comes Alina w/ two black eyes
she’s given herself a transfusion
she’s filled herself w/ panda blood
to avoid all the confusion
I said –the sun rises & falls w/ you–
& various things about love
but a rising violence in me
cut all my circuits off
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
& its 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
all the horrors that have befallen me
well Deanna is to blame
every time I see you babe
you make me feel so all alone
& I wept my face into her dress
long after she’d gone home
w/ more news from nowhere
more news from nowhere
& dont it make you feel alone
dont it make you wanna get right back home
more news from nowhere
more news from nowhere
dont it make you feel so sad
dont the blood rush to yr feet
to think that everything you do today
tomorrow is obsolete
technology & women
& little children too
dont it make you feel blue
dont it make you feel blue
for more news from nowhere
more news from nowhere
dont it make you feel alone
dont it make you wanna get right back home
more news from nowhere
more news from nowhere
goodbye/goodbye/goodbye
