about

Song originally by Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds

lyrics

Go son, go down to the water
And see the women weeping there
Then go up into the mountains
The men, they are weeping too
Father, why are all the women weeping?
They are weeping for their men
Then why are all the men there weeping?
They are weeping back at them

This is a weeping song
A song in which to weep
While all the men and women sleep
This is a weeping song
But I won't be weeping long

Father, why are all the children weeping?
They are merely crying son
Oh, are they merely crying, father?
Yes, true weeping is yet... to come
This is a weeping song
A song in which to weep
While all the men and women sleep
This is a weeping song
But I won't be weeping long

Oh father, tell me are you weeping?
Your face seems wet to touch
Oh, then I'm so sorry, father
I never thought I hurt you so much

This is a weeping song
A song in which to weep
While we rock ourselves to sleep
This is a weeping song
But I won't be weeping long
But I won't be weeping long
But I won't be weeping long
But I won't be weeping long

about

The Angelus Dallas, Texas

Pretty. Bleak. Those words encapsulate the sweeping and majestic sounds that build like storm systems and burst into bone-rattling sonic downpours that the Dallas, TX trio The Angelus summon up.
