Can You Guess Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds Songs From Lyrics

"I just made a simple gesture They jumped up and nailed it to my shadow My gesture was a hooker You know, my shadow's made of timber."

Seems you've remembered How to sleep, how to sleep The house dogs are in your turnips And your yard dogs are running all over the street

Tallies up his loneliness, notch by notch For the sea offers nuthin to hold or touch

Thrown into a dungeon Bread and water was my portion Faith - my only weapon To rest the devil's legion

Next came the cops, all out on the town But it don't look like no trouble there As they head for the bar in their lumpy suits

We talk about it all night long We define our moral ground But when I crawl into your arms Everything, it comes tumbling down

You keep nailing me back into my box I'm sorry I keep popping back up With my crazy mouth and jangling jester's cap

Dog-boy, Atlas, Mandrake, the geeks, the hired hands There was not one among them that did not cast an eye behind

There is no knowledge but i know it There's nothing to learn from that vacant voice That sails to me across the line From the ridiculous to the sublime

Ya wake up one morning and you find you're a thug blowing smoke rings in some dive Ya fingers hot and itchin, ya cracking ya knuckles
