Beanie Ben ✨ It took 3 years to create this 5-track epic, and it refuses to be hurried. The first three tracks (#5 to #3) are a long introduction to #4 (Nick Cave having a nightmare) and #7 gives you time to recover.

Absolutely my favourite recording so far by either band. Favorite track: #4.

hands tied, into the sea rocks for your pillow dream for eternity on your bed down below

Our timing is ruling us out of a new world Your peace is at the end of a long and deep sleep Seems like a bad time to learn a new language Everything ends up as stardust Mother earth says I'm not her son I'm out of breath, I think I'm out of luck Everything ends up as stardust I'm out of breath, I think I'm out of luck Mother earth says I'm not her son [hearing voices calling from the ground] I'm out of breath I think I'm out of luck [dancing round a fire, giving prayer] Everything ends up as stardust [peace is at the end of this] I'm out of breath, I think I'm out of luck [all of us sing in unison]

This fallow land An enclave A root-riddled gout vein A blade to the edge of the air and of the earth And for to falter And for to rest And for the dance And for to kiss And nothing And nothing And nothing And nothing

And I grew to love the only way that I could And words that meant nothing were all that we had And I'm hungry for the past that were better times You're a piece of a puzzle that was lost in the fire And you came back to haunt me again and again And I tried my best to drink myself to death And you only believe the things that you know Killing's too good for me if you can't do it yourself And the past is the past if you only let it go And I tried to go straight, but it tastes so fucking good Being kind for no reason is no way to be And the path to righteousness was always out of reach And I screamed and I shouted, I demanded to be heard And I'm tired of being fucked over, and I'm tired of being the last But nothing is worse than knowing it took so long And you screamed and you shouted, you demanded to be heard
