Higgs Boson Blues (Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds)

Can't remember anything at all Flame trees line the streets Can't remember anything at all But I'm driving my car down to Geneva I've been sitting in my basement patio Aye, it was hot Up above, girls walk past, the roses all in bloom Have you ever heard about the Higgs Boson blues I'm goin' down to Geneva baby, gonna teach it to you Who cares, who cares what the future brings? Black road long and I drove and drove I came upon a crossroad The night was hot and black I see Robert Johnson, With a ten dollar guitar strapped to his back, Lookin' for a tune Well here comes Lucifer, With his canon law, And a hundred black babies runnin' from his genocidal jaw He got the real killer groove Robert Johnson and the devil man Don't know who's gonna rip off who Driving my car, flame trees on fire Sitting and singin' the Higgs Boson blues, I'm tired, I'm lookin' for a spot to drop All the clocks have stopped in Memphis now In the Lorraine Motel, it's hot, it's hot That's why they call it the Hot Spot I take a room with a view Hear a man preaching in a language that's completely new, yea Making the hot cocks in the flophouse bleed While the cleaning ladies sob into their mops And a bellhop hops and bops A shot rings out to a spiritual groove Everybody bleeding to that Higgs Boson Blues If I die tonight, bury me In my favorite yellow patent leather shoes With a mummified cat and a cone-like hat That the caliphate forced on the Jews Can you feel my heartbeat? Can you feel my heartbeat? Hannah Montana does the African Savannah As the simulated rainy season begins She curses the queue at the Zulus And moves on to Amazonia And cries with the dolphins Mama ate the pygmy The pygmy ate the monkey The monkey has a gift that he is sending back to you Look here comes the missionary With his smallpox and flu He's saving them savages With his Higgs Boson Blues I'm driving my car down to Geneva I'm driving my car down to Geneva Oh let the damn day break The rainy days always make me sad Miley Cyrus floats in a swimming pool in Toluca Lake And you're the best girl I've ever had Can't remember anything at all
