Night of the Lotus Eaters (Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds)

Sapped and stupid I lie upon the stones and I swoons The darlig little dandelions have done their thing and changed from suns into moons The dragons roam the shopping malls, I hear they're gonna eat our guts If I had the strength I might pick up my sword and make some attempt to resist Get ready to shield yourself Grab your sap and your heaters Get ready to shield yourself On the night of the lotus eaters Mmm, don't you love my baby Mmm, and don't you love my baby anymore They gilded my scales, they fish-bowled me and they toured me round the old aquariums They come in their hordes to tap at the glass, the philistines and barbarians I like floating here, it's nice, they've hung seaweed around my hips And I do the hula for the hungry ones and the lames all throw me tips Get ready to shield yourself Grab your sap and your heaters Get ready to shield yourself On the night of the lotus eaters Mmm, don't you love my baby Mmm, and don't you love my baby anymore Get ready to shield yourself From our catastrophic leaders Get ready to shield yourself Grab your sap and your heaters On the night of the lotus eaters Now hit the streets! Now hit the streets!
