What Pitchfork said
People die in Nick Cave songs.
They get wiped out in floods, zapped in electric chairs, and mowed down en masse in saloon shootouts.
For Cave, death serves as both a dramatic and rhetorical deviceits great theater, but its also swift justice for those who have done wrong, be it in the eyes of a lover or the Lord.
As I once heard him quip in concert: This next ones a morality tale theyre all morality tales, really.
Its what I do.
