To continue the conversation from twitter. I'm not very familiar with that song you mentioned.
There are some holes in my Nick Cave knowledge. But there are so many great lines in "There She Goes My Beautiful World" like "if you got a field that don't yield..." and I love the line about Dylan Thomas and all the other artists as he kind of traces their various inspirations. Sorta similar to his "walking through his library" on "Dig, Lazarus, Dig," as you mentioned in your write-up.
Tell me about "Darker with the Days."
