    Original track by Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds

    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

    Composers: Nicholas Edward Cave / Mick Harvey / Thomas Wydler

    Well I can’t believe almost a whole year went by and I’m just now listening to the latest PJH, All About Eve soundtrack, and it’s seriously my favorite thing she’s done since White Chalk.

    “The Sandman” is great and reminds me of Sleep Party People. Between this and Red Right Hand, I’m hoping the next album has the same creepy, creaky floorboard in the attic sort of vibe.

    Same. I immediately LOVED White Chalk and have loved it ever sense. It's just like this haunted record or something. It has such an intriguing and mysterious and somehow malevolent or supernatural atmosphere. I'd definitely show up for a different take on the general idea.
