Rats In Paradise! [Apr. 14th, 2004|06:11 am]
Miss Von Trapp
[Mood |bouncybouncy]
[Music |Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds]

Have had a long long day...it's 6:12am and the sun is coming up; I ought to go to bed before it's too light to sleep...have theatre tomorrow/today in the evening;)

Got up at 2pm and went up to Kathryn's house to give her the present and card for Sarah Elizabeth...she loved the pink hooded coat I'd bought...stuck around for a cup of tea and she gave me a lift back with my food shopping at 6:30.

Had a nice hot bath and then cooked a ham and mushroom pasta dinner...made a mess of eating it because it was tagliatelle and my lipring got in the way lolol!!

(need to re-learn how to eat long pasta tidily!!)

Went to work at 9pm...Jui-ehh!! and I renamed the word 'minute' to 'minnow' and made up a ridiculous story about a minnow called Peter who had a red balloon and was sad; she'd had too much 'Rocket Fuel' guarana-spiked coffee and was on a caffeine-high!!

(Rar Jui! Da Lizzle-squee is apologising for singing too loudly - if you're reading this!)

I mostly sat listening to my Nick Cave cds all night...The Birthday Party: Mutiny in Heaven EP...fantastic... Followed by my favourite Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds album ever: Let Love In!!

Oh, I love that album so much...if I were to choose one album to listen to forever on a desert island (blah blah) it would be that one!!

If you can download the mp3s of these songs I heartily recommend you do so...then you'll know just why I love Nick Cave so much...the voice, the lyrics, the musical arrangement...the...energy...

I'm rambling, but hey!!

Read and ENJOY!!



Nick Cave - I Let Love In

Despair and Deception, Love's ugly little twins
Came a-knocking on my door, I let them in
Darling, you're the punishment for all of my former sins

I let love in
I let love in

The door it opened just a crack, but Love was shrewed and bold
My life flashed before my eyes, it was a horror to behold
A life-sentence sweeping confetti from the floor of a concrete hole

I let love in
I let love in
I let love in
I let love in

Well I've been bound and gagged and I've been terrorized
And I've been castrated and I've been lobotomized
But never has my tormenter come in such a cunning disguise

I let love in
I let love in
I let love in
I let love in

O Lord, tell me what I done
Please don't leave me here alone
Where are my friends?
My friends are gone
O Lord, tell me what I done
Please don't leave me here alone
Where are my friends?
My friends are gone

I let love in
I let love in

So if you're sitting all alone and hear a-knocking at you door
and the air is full of promises, well buddy, you've been warned

Far worse to be Love's lover than the lover that Love has scorned

I let love in
I let love in
I let love in
I let love in
I let love in
I let love in
I let love in
I let love in

Nick Cave - Loverman

There's a devil waiting outside your door
(How much longer)
There's a devil waiting outside your door
It is bucking and braying and pawing at the floor
And he's howling with pain and crawling up the walls
There's a devil waiting outside your door
He's weak with evil and broken by the world
He's shouting your name and he's asking for more
There's a devil waiting outside your door

Loverman! Since the world began
Forever, Amen Till end of time Take off that
dress I'm coming down I'm your loverman
Cause I am what I am what I am what I am

L is for LOVE, baby
O is for ONLY you that I do
V is for loving VIRTUALLY all that you are
E is for loving almost EVERYTHING that you do
R is for RAPE me
M is for MURDER me
A is for ANSWERING all of my prayers
N is for KNOWING your loverman's going to
be the answer to all of yours

Loverman! Till the bitter end
While empires burn down Forever and ever
and ever and ever Amen I'm your loverman
So help me, baby So help me
Cause I am what I am what I am what I am
I'll be your loverman!

There's a devil crawling along your floor
There's a devil crawling along your floor
With a trembling heart, he's coming through your door
With his straining sex in his jumping paw
There's a devil crawling along your floor
And he's old and he's stupid and
he's hungry and he's sore
And he's lame and he'sblind
and he's dirty and he's poor
Give him more
There's a devil crawling along your floor

Loverman! Here I stand Forever, Amen
Cause I am what I am what I am what I am
Forgive me, baby My hands are tied
And I got no choice No, I got no choice at all
I'll say it again

L is for LOVE, baby
O is for O yes I do
V is for VIRTUE, so I ain't gonna hurt you
E is for EVEN if you want me to
R is for RENDER unto me, baby
M is for that which is MINE
A is for ANY old how, darling
N is for ANY old time

I'll be your loverman! I got a masterplan
To take off your dress And be your man
Seize the throne Seize the mantle
Seize the crown Cause I am what I am
What I am what I am I'm your loverman!
There's a devil lying by your side
You might think he's asleep
but look at his eyes
He wants you, baby, to be his bride
There's a devil lying by your side
Loverman! Loverman!

The Birthday Party :MUTINY IN HEAVEN
(Nick Cave's band before The Bad Seeds)

well ah jumpt! and fled this fucken heap on doctored wings
mah flailin pinions, with splints and rags and crutches!
(damn things nearly hardly flap)
canker upon canker upon one million tiny punctures
that look like...

long thin red ribbons draped across the arms of a lil mortal girl
(like a ground -plan of Hell)
curse these smartin strings! these fucken ruptures!
enough! enough is enough!

(if this is Heaven ah'm bailin out)
if this is Heaven ah'm bailin out

ah caint tolerate this ol tin-tub
so fulla trash and rats! Felt one crawl across mah soul
for a seckon there , as thought as wassa back down in the ghetto!
(rats in Paradise! rats in Paradise!)
ah'm bailin out! there's a mutiny in Heaven!

ah wassa born...
and Lord shakin, even then was dumpt into some icy font,
like some great stinky unclean!
from slum-church to slum-church, ah spilt mah heart
to some fat cunt behind a screen...

evil poppin eye presst up to the opening
he'd slide shut the lil perforated hatch...at night mah body blusht
to the whistle of the birch
with a lil practice ah soon learnt to use in on mahself

punishment?! reward!! punishment?! reward!!

well, ah tied on...percht on mah bed ah was...
sticken a needle in mah arm...

ah tied off! fucken wings burst out mah back
(like ah was cuttin teeth!!)
ah took off!!!

(rats in Paradise! rats in Paradise!)
there's a mutiny in Heaven!

oh lord, ah git down on mah knees
(ah git down on mah knees and start to pray)
wrapped in mah mongrel wings, ah nearly freeze
in the howlin wind and drivin rain
(all the trash blowin round 'n' round)
from slum-heaven into town
ah take mah tiny pain and rollin back mah sleeve
(roll anna roll anna roll anna roll)

ah yank the drip outa mah vein! UTOPIATE! ah'm bailin out!
UTOPIATE!
if this is Heaven ah'm bailin out!

mah threadbare soul teems with vermin and louse
thoughts come like a plague to the head...in god's house!

mutiny in Heaven!
(ars infectio forco Dio)
to the plank!
(rats in Paradise! rats in Paradise!)
ah'm bailin out!
(hail Hypuss Dermio Vita Rex!)
hole inna ghetto! hole inna ghetto!
(Scabio Murem per Sanctum...Dio, Dio, Dio)
