Higgs Boson Blues (Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds)

Higgs Boson Blues
Can’t remember anything at all
Flame trees line the streets
Can’t remember anything at all
I’m driving my car down to Geneva

I’ve been sitting in my basement patio
It was hot
Up above, the girls walk past, their roses all in bloom
Hey, have you ever heard about the Higgs Boson blues?
I’m goin’ down to Geneva baby, gonna teach it to you

Who cares, who cares what the future brings?
Black road long and I drove and drove
I came upon a crossroad
And the night was hot and black
I see Robert Johnson
With a ten dollar guitar strapped to his back
Lookin’ for a tune

Here come Lucifer
With his canon law
And a hundred black babies runnin’ from his genocidal jaw
He’s got the real killer groove
Robert Johnson and the devil man
Don’t know who’s gonna rip off who

I’m driving my car, flame trees on fire
Everybody singin’ the Higgs Boson blues,
I’m tired, I’m tired, I’m lookin’ for a spot to drop
All the clocks have stopped in Memphis
In the Lorraine Motel, it’s hot, it’s hot
That’s why they call it the Hot Spot
I take a room with a view
I see a man preaching in a language that’s completely new
Making the hot cocks in the flophouse bleed
While the cleaning ladies sob into their mops
The bellhop hops and bops
A shot rings out it’s a a spiritual groove
Everybody bleeding from the Higgs Boson Blues

And if I die tonight, bury me
In my favorite yellow patent leather shoes
A mummified cat and a cone-like hat
That the caliphate forced on the Jews
Can you feel my heartbeat?
Can you feel my heartbeat?

Hannah Montana, she does the African Savannah
While the simulated rainy season begins
She curses the queue at the Zulus
And moves on to Amazonia
And cries with the dolphins
The mama ate the pygmy
The pygmy ate the monkey
The monkey has a gift that he is sending back to you
Here come the missionary
With the smallpox and flu
Saving them savages
With his Higgs Boson Blues

I’m driving my car down to Geneva
I’m driving my car down to Geneva

Oh let the damn day break
Rainy days always make me sad
Miley Cyrus floats in a swimming pool in Toluca Lake
And you’re the best girl I’ve ever had
I’m driving my car down to Geneva
Can you feel my heartbeat?
Can you feel my heartbeat?
I’m driving my car down to Geneva
Can’t remember anything at all
Sitting here in my basement patio
I can’t remember anything at all
I’m driving my car down to Geneva
