Album Abattoir Blues, The Lyre of Orpheus. The Lyre of Orpheus Lyrics. Orpheus sat gloomy in his garden shed Wondering what to do With a lump of wood, a piece of wire And a little pot of glue O Mama O Mama. He sawed at the wood with half a heart And glued it top to bottom He strung a wire in between He was feeling something rotten O Mama O Mama. Orpheus looked at his instrument And he gave the wire a pluck He heard a sound so beautiful He gasped and said O my God O Mama O Mama. Orpheus picked up his lyre for the last time He was on a real low down bummer And stared deep into the abyss and said This one is for Mama O Mama O Mama O Mama O Mama O Mama O Mama O Mama O Mama O Mama O Mama O Mama O Mama.

Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds - Abattoir Blues, The Lyre of Orpheus Album Lyrics. 1. Cannibal's Hymn Lyrics.

In the wake of longtime Bad Seeds member Blixa Bargeld's departure, Nick Cave issues this double album- its halves ostensibly split between quiet and more chaotic material- on which he further explores human nature's dichotomous penchants for piety and depravity. You can almost taste the brimstone puffing from his nostrils on Abattoir Blues's opener "Get Ready for Love", which- in its full-throated gospel-punk regalia- sounds like it could be the most raucous Blues Explosion track ever. This unruly blast sets the stage for The Bad Seeds' most varied and dynamic collection in years, an ironic fact considering that this is their first album since the departure of designated avant guardian Blixa Bargeld.

Nick Cave's familiar face appeared on the front page of the Brighton Argus, wearing an expression of glowering discomfort. Perhaps he had been warned in advance of the accompanying headline: Rock King Cave Backs West Pier "Jungle" Bid. The 46-year-old singer was throwing his lanky frame behind a plan to grow "hardy plants" around the rusted steel structure: "It's a gamble, but an exciting one - something the community could watch evolve. Less than 18 months later, Cave has returned with a double album, recorded without long-term Bad Seeds guitarist Blixa Bargeld, and broadly split by mood - Abbatoir Blues is snarling and bilious, The Lyre of Orpheus gentler in tone. Bargeld's departure seems to have shaken Cave and his cohorts in the best way imaginable. The Bad Seeds sounded reined in on Nocturama, a waste of perhaps the most distinctive backing band in rock.
