Artist's Description

Self-portrait, listening to Night of the Lotus Eaters by Nick Cave.

“Sapped and stupid I lie upon the stones and I swoons
The darling little dandelions have done their thing and changed from suns into moons
The dragons roam the shopping malls,
I hear they’re gonna eat our guts
If I had the strength I might pick up my sword
and make some attempt to resist

Get ready to shield yourself
Grab your sap and your heaters
Get ready to shield yourself
On the night of the lotus eaters

Mmm, don’t you love my baby
Mmm, and don’t you love my baby anymore

They gilded my scales, they fish-bowled me and they
toured me round the old aquariums
They come in their hordes to tap at the glass,
the philistines and barbarians
I like floating here, it’s nice, they’ve hung seaweed
around my hips
And I do the hula for the hungry ones and the lames
all throw me tips

Get ready to shield yourself
Grab your sap and your heaters
Get ready to shield yourself
On the night of the lotus eaters

Mmm, don’t you love my baby
Mmm, and don’t you love my baby anymore

Get ready to shield yourself
From our catastrophic leaders
Get ready to shield yourself
Grab your sap and your heaters

On the night of the lotus eaters

Now hit the streets!

Now hit the streets! "

~ Nick Cave
