I Had a Dream, Joe (Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds)

I had a dream I had a dream I had a dream, joe I had a dream, joe You were standing in the middle of an open road I had a dream, joe Your hands were raised up to the sky And your mouth was covered in foam I had a dream, joe A shadowy jesus flitted from tree to tree I had a dream, joe And a society of whores stuck needles in an image of me I had a dream, joe It was autumn time and thickly fell the leaves And in that dream, joe A pimp in seersucker suit sucked a toothpick And pointed his finger at me I had a dream, I had a dream, I had a dream, joe I opened my eyes, joe The night had been a giant, dribbling and pacing the boards I opened my eyes, joe All your letters and cards stacked up against the door I opened my eyes, joe The morning light came slowly tumbling through the crack In the window, joe And I thought of you and I felt like I was lugging A body on my back I had a dream, I had a dream, I had a dream, joe Where did you go, joe? On that endless, senseless, demented drift Where did you go, joe? Into the woods, into the trees, where you move and shift Where did you go, joe? All dressed up in your ridiculous seersucker suit Where did you go, joe? With that strew of wreckage Forever at the heel of your boot I had a dream I had a dream I had a dream, joe I had a dream I had a dream I had a dream, jo
