Adapted from Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds - Red Right Hand

On a gathering storm comes
a tall handsome man
in a dusty black coat with
a Read Write Hand

They're whispering his name
through this disappearing land
but hidden in his coat
is a Read Write Hand

A shadow is cast wherever he stands
stacks of clean paper in his
Read Write Hand

You're one microscopic cog
in his catastrophic plan
designed and directed by
his Read Write Hand

       One is a visionary singer and musician, the other is a pitifully misguided actor with poor impulse control.   

       Like the ditty. [+]

       Wicked cool song. My favorite high school teacher played it on a 12-string and had a spooky, haunting baritone. When I asked about the origin he loaned me a stack of vinyl. Only one of them was NC&BDs, but I discovered a whole new sub-genre of music that weekend.
