Red Right Hand Girl Version – PJ Harvey

‎‎‎‏‏‎ ‎‏‏‎ ‎‏‏‎ ‎‏‏‎ ‎‏‏‎ ‎‏‏‎ ‎‏‏‎ ‎It’s a song that has fairly humble beginnings. Much of it came from a jam we were working on when we writing songs for our album Let Love In. […] I still find it all mysterious. I don’t want to know the details, and I’d never ask Nick. Sometimes it’s better to think “what the hell’s that all about?” It’s better that it’s unknowable and spooky. The song has its own life, now.

[Verse 1]
Take a little walk to the edge of town
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

[Verse 2]
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

[Verse 3]
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 slums
A shadow is cast wherever he stands
Stacks of green paper
In his red right hand

[Organ Solo 1]

[Verse 4]
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

[Organ Solo 2]

Track #5 from Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds’ eighth studio album Let Love In.

The notion of a Red Right Hand goes back to John Milton’s Paradise Lost where it also plays the role of an undefined threat. There are discussions among scholars whether it concerns the hand of Satan or the punishing hand of God himself.

To back up the lyrics, the whole song has a threatening allure with the organ theme and Cave’s deep ominous voice.

In verses one and two, a tall handsome stranger ‘with a red right hand’ is used to personify an omnipresent danger. In verses three and four it is revealed what this danger actually is. It is the allure (remember that the man is tall and handsome) of material wealth which draws away your focus from more important things like self-respect. The tall handsome man sustains this danger as a ‘catastrophic plan’ in which you (that is the average person) are a ‘microscopic cog’. In this way, the man represents consumer society: something which is very everyday, but in its essence utterly scary and life-crushing.

The song was used as a theme song for the the horror movies Scream 1 & 2 and the soundtrack of 3 still contains tunes that are a reminiscence of this song. It’s also the theme song for the BBC show Peaky Blinders.

想笑

Want to smile

來偽裝掉下的眼淚
lai wei zhuang diao xia de yan lei
To disguise the tears that are falling

點點頭
dian dian tou
Nod head

承認自己會怕黑
cheng ren zi ji hui pa hei
Admit to myself that I will be scared of the dark

我只求
wo zhi qiu
I only seek

能借一點的時間來陪
neng jie yi dian de shi jian lai pei
That you can lend some time to be with me

你卻連同情都不給
ni que lian tong qing dou bu gei
But you don’t even give sympathy

CHORUS

想哭
xiang ku
Want to cry

來試探自己麻痺了沒
lai shi tan zi ji ma bi le mei
To find out whether I am numb yet

全世界
quan shi jie
The whole world

好像只有我疲憊
hao xiang zhi you wo pi bei
Seems like I am the only one who is tired

無所謂
wu suo wei
Doesn’t matter

反正難過就敷衍走一回
fan zheng nan guo jiu fu yan zou yi hui
Anyway I’m feeling sad so I’ll muddle through and go for a time

但願絕望和無奈遠走高飛
dan yuan jue wang he wu nai yuan zou gao fei
If only despair and feeling useless would go far away

天灰灰
tian hui hui
The sky is very grey

會不會
hui bu hui
Will it

讓我忘了你是誰
rang wo wang le ni shi shei
Let me forget who you are?

夜越黑
ye yue hei
The darker the night

夢違背
meng wei bei
Dream disobeys

難追難回味
nan zhui nan hui wei
It is hard to chase and hard to enjoy in retrospect

我的世界將被摧毀
wo de shi jie jiang bei cui hui
My world is going to be destroyed

也許事與願違
ye xu shi yu yuan wei
Maybe things do not happen as I wish

累不累
lei bu lei
Tired or not?

睡不睡
shui bu shui
Sleep or not?

單影無人相依偎
dan ying wu ren xiang yi wei
A single shadow with no one to snuggle with

夜越黑
ye yue hei
The darker the night

夢違背
meng wei bei
Dream disobeys

有誰肯安慰
you shei ken an wei
Who is willing to comfort? (It is hard to chase and hard to enjoy in retrospect)

我的世界將被摧毀
wo de shi jie jiang bei cui hui
My world is going to be destroyed

也許頹廢也是另一種美
ye xu tui fei ye shi ling yi zhong mei
Maybe being dispirited is another kind of beauty

Sevagoth Song – Sleeping In The Cold Below

Lyrics:

So it’s into the void
Now me girls and me boys

From Mother’s hands we go
We’ll be sailing to the sun

Till the voyage is done
Then we’ll be sleepin in the cold below

Sisters
Below, below

We’re going where the winds don’t blow
Yes we’re all bound down

To the deep and we’ll all be
Sleepin in the cold below, below
Sleepin in the cold below

Our sailing ships
For the hard and the quick

We roll our load and go
There’s a living to be made

Or there’s Hell to pay
When you’re sleepin in the cold below

Sisters
Below, below

We’re going where the winds don’t blow
Yes we’re all bound down

To the deep and we’ll all be
Sleepin in the cold below, below
Sleepin in the cold below


There’s a man on high
With the Devil in his eye

And a golden hand, I’m told
It can hurt you, it can hold you

He can kick you or console you
When you’re sleepin in the cold below

Sisters
Below, below

We’re going where the winds don’t blow
Yes we’re all bound down

To the deep and we’ll all be
Sleepin in the cold below, below
Sleepin in the cold below


Oh Sisters you
So wise and true

When it’s my time to go
Won’t you lay me down

Under Granum Crowns
And I’ll be sleepin in the cold below, below
Sleepin in the cold below

Sisters
Below, below

We’re going where the winds don’t blow
Yes we’re all bound down
To the deep and we’ll all be sleepin in the cold below, below

Sisters
Below, below

We’re going where the winds don’t blow
Yes we’re all bound down

To the deep and we’ll all be
Sleepin in the cold below, below
Sleepin in the cold below, below
Sleepin in the cold below

Today we sail
On the Solar Rail

For there’s much we just don’t know
So farewell with a kiss

Then it’s fast for the mist
Till we’re all sleepin in the cold below

Lyric video for Sisitipsi’s single ‘Alkohol’ taken from their album ‘73%’.

 sore hari menjelang kacamata hitam terpasang 
senderan di balik dinding
ketawa ketiwi
bercengkrama sama teman 4 sampai 5 orang

happy happy
kenapa bisa happy?

karena alkohol
kamu jahat tapi enak
alkohol
bisa juga buat luka ringan
alkohol
walau jahat tetap enak
alkohol
walau pajak-mu tinggi tetap menjadi solusi

[Chorus]
Just when you think I’ve given up, I start to fight
When you think I’ve had enough, I start to bite
I’m gonna prove the whole world wrong tonight
This is for the underdog, underdog
You can count me out, but watch me rise
I’ve been going up against it all my life

This is for the lost, the left out, the looked over
The ones who fight wars, the true soldiers

For the ones who keep holdin’ on (Keep holdin’ on)

Oh, let’s hear it for the underdog
The only one against the odds
Let’s hear it for the underdog, underdog
Soon to be top dog
