The tree don't care what the little bird sings
We go down with the dew in the morning light
The tree don't know what the little bird brings
We go down with the dew in the morning

And we breathe it in
There is no need to forgive
Breathe it in
There is no need to forgive

The trees will stand like pleading hands
We go down with the dew in the morning light
The trees all stand like pleading hands
We go down with the dew in the morning

And we breathe it in
There is no need to forgive
Breathe it in
There is no need to forgive

The trees will burn with blackened hands
We returned with the light of the evening
The trees will burn with blackened hands
Nowhere to rest, no where to land

We know who you are
We know where you live
And we know there's no need to forgive

We know who you are
We know where you live
And we know there's no need to forgive

We know who you are
We know where you live
And we know there's no need to forgive

We know who you are
We know where you live
And we know there's no need to forgive... again

I wondered the same thing, and according to Wiki:   Brighton is an affluent coastal suburb of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia

Thanks for asking, cuz now I know more about one of the places I want to visit one day...LLRP!!

Who is from Brighton?
Too much like Cohen... (depressing)
Soon to become timeless
Lovely female vocals following Nick Cave, stating: "We know who you are" and "There is no reason to forgive". Beautifully chilling.
Killer song
This song is titled like Prince wrote it.

My first knowledge of this deconstruction of the language is Prince, 1981's 'Controversy' with the last track Jack U Off... Don't really remember ever seeing it in yearbooks. What years are you thinking of?
 
1970s when I saw them, and probably long before then for others: silly things like "2 Good 2 B 4 Gotten", 2 Young 4 A 6 Pack", etc.
Am I bad for liking Cave better as a scriptwriter than a songwriter?

Rating it a 5 just because of the stupid teenage texting spelling of the title.  Call me old school.

 
Those sort of deliberate misspellings are pretty old school - old school yearbooks, that is - long before texting.  Still, it always sort of bugged me.  I guess Mr. Cave had his reasons.

Liking the Australian music string.  Thanks Bill.
Not the best one on this record, enjoyable though. The whole thing is much better! {#Cheesygrin}

Apparently Nick's son had taken a pretty huge dose of LSD and while on his own tragically went over a cliff local to us and died as a result of his injuries. At the inquest, some people had seen him in distress but were unable to get to him quickly enough. 

He was only 15. 

He leaves behind his twin brother and a devastated family. 

I had personally seen him on occasion about in Brighton. . . and while I never actually met him I can only imagine the anguish. 

What a sad, sad, story. 

 
Say a prayer for Nick & family. Lost a son on Tuesday......

{#Pray} 
To Nick Cave....My condolences for the tragic loss of your son. 
RIP Arthur.  So sad I don't get to see your contribution to the world.
Excellent song! Super artist

Prince started it.
 
...nothing compares 2 him...
That part at the end where they're chanting the chorus "we know who you are" with the hypnotic music and the flute, it reminds me of those 1960s zombie cult movies, like Manos: Hands Of Fate.

"We know you you are, and we know where you live, and we're gonna get you."  (spooky flute plays)

He was recently on Austin City Limits - worth checking out on PBS.

Well, he does have that deep voice, and the song does have some of that gloomy keyboard sound.
Super song! Excellant artist
