Idiot Prayer - Nick Cave
They're taking me down, my friend
And as they usher me off to my end
Will I bid you adieu ?
Or will I be seeing you soon ?
If what they say around here is true
Then we'll meet again
My time is at hand, my dove
They're gunna pass me to that house above
Is Heaven just for victims, dear ?
Where only those in pain do ?
Well it takes two to tango
We will meet again, my love I know
If you're in Heaven then you'll forgive me,dear
Because that's what they do up there
But if you're in Hell, then what can I say
You probably deserved it anyway
I guess I'm gunna find out any day
For we will meet again
And there'll be Hell to pay
Your face comes to me from the depths,
Your silent mouth mouths, "Yes", dear
Dark red and big with blood
They're gunna shut me down, my love
They're gunna launch me into the stars
Well, all things come to pass
Yeah, Glory Hallelujah
This prayer is for you, my love
Sent on the wings of a dove
An idiot prayer of empty words
Love, dear, is strictly for the birds
We each get what we deserve
My little snow white dove
