  • Lyrics
  • This brooding song features the lyric, "I believe in God." Speaking with The Sun, Cave put his apparent statement of faith into context into context. "I'm talking about believing in God, believing in mermaids and believing in 72 virgins," he said. "The song starts reeling off the options and I think what I'm really saying is I believe in the idea of believing in things.
    The fact that we humans have that capacity or need to believe is not a shameful thing as some people might see it, but hugely endearing."
  • Cave also references an incident in December 2010 when he crashed his Jaguar car into a speed camera. "I do driver alertness course," he intones in his baritone croon. The singer and his twin sons all walked away from the accident unharmed, but Cave had to attend a driver alertness course as a punishment. "I rather liked it," he told The Sun. "Because it was really rehab for drivers and there was that kind of shameful look about the people there."
