Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds - 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,
in the humming wires
Hey man, 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,
tell you that you've been a good boy
He'll rekindle all the dreams
it took you a lifetime to destroy
He'll reach deep into the hole,
heal your shrinking soul,
but 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
through this disappearing land
But hidden in his coat
is a red right hand

You don't have no money?
He'll get you some
You don't have no car?
He'll get you one
You don't have no self-respect,
you feel like an insect
Well don't you worry buddy,
'cause here he comes
Through the ghettos and the barrio
and the bowery and the slum
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 ain't what he seems
You'll see him in your head,
on the TV screen
And 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

    Thanks to the Lee boys, here you have the 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
    In the humming wires
    Hey man, 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,
    Tell you that you've been a good boy
    He'll rekindle all the dreams
    It took you a lifetime to destroy
    He'll reach deep into the hole
    Heal your shrinking soul
    But there won't be a single thing that you can do

    He's a god, he's a man

  96. Al Golikov

    Ты добрался до окраин
    Гулкой темной проходной
    Там где камни нависают
    Черной птицей неземной
    И шевелятся и скребутся
    Где секреты спящи о кустах горящих
    В проводах гудящих
    Слышишь ты знакомый страх
    За майдан и за мост
    За скирду и за стог
    Там где с бурей идет
    Неприметный такой
    Господин никто
    С красной правой рукой

    Он расскажет как прекрасна
    Та болезненная страсть
    От которой ты бежишь
    О которой тебе страшно вспоминать
    Внимательно будет слушать
    Лаская твою душу
    И из его объятий
    Будет не убежать
    Он и бог, он и чёрт
    Он и есть, его и нету
    Имя его уважительно
    Шепчут те простаки
    Завороженные мановением
    Красной правой руки

    Тебе нужны деньги
    Нет проблем
    Нужна тебе тачка
    Поможем и с тем
    Хочешь стать большим человеком
    Хочешь гордиться собой
    Не беспокойся парень
    Всё уже плывет к тебе
    По кочкам, по людям
    По быдлу, по пьяни
    Пачки долларов на легке
    Держит господин никто
    В красной правой руке

    Ты видишь в кошмарах
    Ты видишь в мечтах
    Но он никогда не приходит
    Просто так
    Так ты видишь его наяву
    Телевизор окно интернет
    Парень я тебе говорю
    Это последний шанс сказать нет
    Он и бог, он и чёрт
    Он и есть, его и нету
    Ты безвольная кость
    В том страшном броске
    Что захотелось сделать
    Красной правой руке

  97. Olivia D

    Why do I suddenly want to drink whiskey, snort cocaine and put a cigarette out on a mans face?
