    YouTube Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds Dig, Lazarus, Dig!



    Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds - Dig, Lazarus, Dig! - YouTube

    [Dig yourself]
    [Laz'rus dig yourself]
    [Laz'rus dig yourself]
    [Laz'rus dig yourself]
    [Back in that hole.]

    Larry made his nest up in the autumn branches
    Built from nothing but high hopes and thin air
    He collected up some baby blasted mothers who took their chances
    And for a while they lived quite happily up there

    He came from New York city man, but he couldn't take the pace
    He thought it was like dog eat dog world
    Then he went to San Francisco, spent a year in out space
    With a sweet little San Fransiscan girl.

    I can hear my mother wailing and a whole lot of scraping of chairs

    I don't know what it is but there's definately something going on upstairs

    [Dig yourself]
    [Laz'rus dig yourself]
    [Laz'rus dig yourself]
    [Laz'rus dig yourself]
    (I want you to dig)[Back in that hole.]

    (I want you to dig)

    (I want you to dig)Meanwhile Larry made up names for the ladies
    Like miss Boo and miss Quick
    He stockpiled weapons and took potshots in the air
    He feasted on their lovely bodies like a lunatic
    And wrapped himself up in their soft yellow hair

    I can hear chants and incantations and some guy is mentioning me in his prayers.
    Well, I don't know what it is but there's definitely something going on upstairs

    [Dig yourself]

    (I want you to dig)

    (I want you to dig)Well New York City man, San Francisco, LA, I don't know
    But Larry grew increasingly neurotic and obscene
    I mean he, he never asked to be raised up from the tomb
    I mean no one ever actually asked him to forsake his dreams
    He ended up like so many of them do, back on the streets of New York City
    In a soup queue, a dopefiend, a slave, then prison, then the madhouse, then the grave
    Ah poor Larry

    But what do we really know'f the dead And who actually cares?

    Well, I don't know what it is but there's definitely something going on upstairs.[Dig yourself]
    [Laz'rus dig yourself]
    [Laz'rus dig yourself]
    [Laz'rus dig yourself]
    (I want you to dig)[Back in that hole Dig yourself]
    [Laz'rus dig yourself]
    [Laz'rus dig yourself]
    [Laz'rus dig yourself]
    (I want you to dig)[Back in that hole. Dig yourself]
    [Laz'rus dig yourself]
    [Laz'rus dig yourself]
    [Laz'rus dig yourself]
    (I want you to dig)[Back in that hole. Dig yourself]
    [Laz'rus dig yourself]
    [Laz'rus dig yourself]
    [Laz'rus dig yourself]
    [Back in that hole.]
