I walk into the corner of my room
See my friends in high places
I don't know which is which or who is whom
They've stolen each other's facesJanet is there with her high head and hair
And full of bedroom feathers
Janet is known to make dead men groan
In any kind of weatherI crawl over to her
I say, ?Hey baby?, I say, ?Hey, Janet
You are the one, you are the sun
And I'm your dutiful planet"But she ain't down with any of that
'Cause she's heard that shit before
And I say, ?Oh yeah, you're right?
'Cause I see Betty X standing by the doorWith more news from nowhere
Yeah, more news from nowhere
And it's getting strange in here
Yeah, it's getting stranger every year
More news from nowhere
Yeah, more news from nowhere, alright nowNow Betty X is like Betty Y minus that fatal chromosome
Her hair is like the wine dark sea in 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," says Betty, Betty X says, "This light ain't yours"
And so much wind blew through her words
That I went rolling down the hallFor more news from nowhere
More news from nowhere
And it's strange in here
Yeah, it gets stranger every year
More news from nowhere
Yeah, more news from nowhereI turn another corner
I go down a corridor and I see this guy
He must be about one hundred foot tall
And he only has one eyeHe asks me for my autograph
I write nobody and then
I wrap myself up in my woolly coat
And I blind him with my pen'Cause someone must have stuck something in my drink
Every thing's getting strange looking
Half the people have turned into squealing pigs
The other half are cookingWell, let me out of here I cried
And I went pushing past
And I saw Miss Polly singing with some girls
I cried, struck me to the mastFor more news from nowhere
Yeah, more news from nowhere
It's getting strange in here
And it gets stranger every year
More news from nowhere
Yeah, more news from nowhereWell, then a black girl with no clothes on
She danced across the room
We charted the progress of the planets
Around that boogie woogie moonI called her my Nubian princess
Gave her some sweet back fat ass jive
Spent the next seven years between her legs
A pining for my wifeBut then by and by it all went wrong
I fell washed up on a shore
She stared down at me from up in the storm
And I sopped up on the floorFor more news from nowhere
Yeah, 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, let me hear it nowWell, here comes Elena with two black eyes
She's given herself a transfusion
She's filled herself with panda blood
To avoid all the confusionI say, "The sun rises and falls with you
And various things about love"
But a rising violence in me cuts all my circuits offWell, Elena she starts screaming
Her cheeks are full of psychotropic leaves
Her extinction was nearly absolute
When she turned her back on meFor more news from nowhere
I said, more news from nowhere
And it's getting strange in here
Yeah, it gets stranger every year
More news from nowhere
Yeah, more news from nowhere, alright, alrightI bump and crash into Deanna
Hanging pretty in the door frame
All the horrors that have befallen me
Well, Deanna is to blameEvery time I see you baby
You make me feel so unalone
And I wipe my face into her dress
Long after she'd gone homeWith more news from nowhere
Yeah, more news from nowhere
And don't it make you feel alone
Yeah, and don't it make you wanna get right back home
More news from nowhere
Yeah, more news from nowhere, alrightAnd 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 obsoleteTechnology and women
And little children, too
Don't it make you feel blue
Don't it make you feel blueFor more news from nowhere
With more news from nowhere
Don't it make you feel alone
Yeah, and don't it make you wanna get right back home
More news from nowhere
Yeah, more news from nowhere, one last timeWell, I gotta say
Yeah, I gotta say
Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye
Это интересно:Об альбоме Dig, Lazarus, Dig!!!:

Dig, Lazarus, Dig!!! — четырнадцатый студийный альбом группы Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, изданный в 2008 году. На Dig, Lazarus, Dig!!! отчётливо прослеживается влияние гаражного рока от проекта Ника Кейва Grinderman, существовавшего параллельно с Bad Seeds. Запись столь незамысловатого альбома заняла у группы всего пять дней.

Концепция альбома основана на истории Лазаря, которого, согласно Евангелию от Иоанна, воскресил Иисус Христос через четыре дня после смерти. Эта история волновала музыканта, когда он ребёнком посещал церковь. Молодой Ник был в восторге от чуда, совершённого Иисусом, и задавался вопросом, что же чувствовал при этом Лазарь. Спустя много лет музыкант осел в Нью-Йорке и стал создавать песни, придавая им современный вид. Полностью альбом вышел 3 марта 2008 года в Великобритании и 8 апреля в США.

Критическая реакция на альбом была исключительно позитивной, рецензенты сошлись на том, что Dig, Lazarus, Dig!!! возвращает группе её величие и, в то же время, открывает новую грань таланта коллектива. New Musical Express дал альбому 8 звёзд из 10 и описал его как «готический психосексуальный апокалипсис». Стивен Доуснер из Pitchfork оценил Dig, Lazarus, Dig! на 8.4 звезды из 10 и отметил, что «рок-музыканты соответствуют своему возрасту». На сайте Metacritic альбом имеет рейтинг 87 процентов из 100, что указывает на «всеобщее признание». Кроме того Dig, Lazarus, Dig!!! стал лучшим альбомом 2008 года по версии MOJO Awards, а Ник Кейв — лучшим исполнителем по версии ARIA Award. Также альбом стал «серебряным» в Великобритании и «золотым» в Ирландии и Австралии.
