Tell Us Something To Keep Us Trying

Speak to me of universal laws
The whores hustle and the hustlers whore
All around me people bleed
Speak to me your song of greed

Speak to me of your inner charm
Of how you’ll keep me safe from harm
I don’t think so, I don’t see
Speak to me of your inner peace

Little people at the amusement park
City people in the dark
Speak to us, send us a sign
Tell us something to keep us trying

The whores hustle and the hustlers whore
Too many people out of love
The whores hustle and the hustlers whore
The city’s ripped right to the core

Speak to me of heroin and speed
Of genocide and suicide, of syphilis and greed
Speak to me the language of love
The language of violence, the language of the heart
This isn’t the first time I’ve asked for money or love
Heaven and earth don’t ever mean enough

Speak to me of heroin and speed
Just give me something I can believe

The whores hustle and the hustlers whore
Too many people out of love
The whores hustle and the hustlers whore
This city’s ripped right to the core

As much as i love PJ Harveys original version of “The Whores Hustle…” i think Josh Homme’s cover is absolutely amazing. It doesn’t stray far from the original but there’s just something about his voice that gives his version a slight edge over the original. He recorded it during the last Desert Sessions (Volumes 9 and 10) and it appeared as a B-Side on the single release of “Crawl Home”.
