Messiah Ward (Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds)

I hope you're sitting comfortably I saved you the best seat in the house Right up in the front row The stars have been torn down The moon is locked away And the land is banked in frozen snow You are a forte of nature, dear Your breath curls from your lips As the trees bend down their branches And touch you with their fingertips They're bringing out the dead now It's easy just to look away They are bringing out the dead now It's been a strange, strange day We could navigate out position by the stars But they've taken out the stars The stars have all gone I'm glad you've come along We could comprehend our condition by the moon But they've ordered the the moon not to shine Still, I 'm glad you've come along I was worried out of my mind Cause, they keep bringing out the dead It's easy just to look away They're bringing out the dead, now And it's been a long, strange day You can move up a little closer I will throw a blanket over We can weigh all the tears in one hand Against the laughter in the other We could be hanging around here for centuries Trying to make sense of this, my dear While the planets try to get organised Way above the stratosphere But they keep bringing out the dead, now It's easy if we just walk away They keep bringing out the dead, now It's been a long, long day Look away Look away
