Arctic Monkeys - Red Right Hand Lyrics

Take a little walk to the edge of town
And go across the tracks
Where the viaduct looms
Like a bird of doom
As it shifts and cracks

Where secrets lie in the border fires
And the humming wires
Well you know you're never coming back
Past the square past the bridge
Past the mills past the stacks

On a gathering storm comes a tall handsome man
In a dusty black coat with a red right hand

He'll wrap you in his arms
And tell you that you've been a good boy
He'll rekindle all of those dreams
It took you a lifetime to destroy

He'll reach deep into the hole
Heal your shrinking soul
And there won't be a single thing
That you can do
He's a god, he's a man
He's a ghost, he's a guru

They're whispering his name
Across this disappearing land
But hidden in his coat
Is a red right hand

You don't have no money
He'll get you some
If you haven't got no car
He'll get you one
You've got no self respect
You feel like an insect
Well don't you worry buddy
Cause here he comes
Through the ghetto and the barrio
And the bowery and the slums

A shadow is cast wherever he stands
Stacks of green paper in his red right hand

You'll see him in your nightmares
You'll see him in your dreams
He'll appear out of nowhere
But he's not what he seems
You'll see him in your head and on the TV screen
Hey buddy, I'm warning you to turn it off
He's a ghost, he's a god
He's a man, he's a guru

You're one microscopic cog
In his catastrophic plan
Designed and directed by
His red right hand

    Diego dbm a good ass show

  47. Volcano-Cat on Youtube

    On a binge; the old X-Files and one show had the Nick Cave original (S2 E6) and it reminded me how much I loved Cave... and then I found this; one of three songs by the Chilly Chimps I can actually get into. One of those bands you know you SHOULD like, but never quite make the leap...

  48. Aldo Medina

    Oaight oaight

  49. Camila González Mardones

  58. Vienna Buhl

    Saddened that humans really need a TV show to discover this..m

  59. Maxi Hadda

    This totally ruins the original.


    You can still listen to the original whenever you want, stop ya complaining

    Maxi Hadda

    @PaperLanterns11 That makes no sense. It's my opinion on the cover.


    @Maxi Hadda hmmmmm, you make it sound like if this version exists then that ruins the original. listen to either or neither, nothing takes anything away from anything. personally I much prefer this version ( I love heavy riffs) but I can appreciate the original too.

  60. Matthew Smith

    Not good!

  61. ЯiZa

    Well I love AM, I love Cave as well and this version is magnificent although it lacks the original's atmosphere, which is totally mindblowing and unbeatable. However I really really like this cover, sounds fantastic.
