Beck performs “Nausea”

…..Hugh Laurie

Hugh Laurie: Ladies and gentleman, Beck!

(A scale version of the musical stage is shown with puppets of Beck and his band, as we pan over to the real stage with Beck and his band. There are a few cutaways during the performance to this small stage)

Beck: 1, 2, 3, 4

“Now I’m a seasick sailor
On a ship of noise
I got my maps all backwards
And my instincts poisoned
In a truth blown gutter
Full of wasted years
Like blown-out speakers
Ringin’ in my ears.

Oh it’s nausea, oh nausea
And we’re gone.
It’s nausea, oh nausea
And we’re gone.

Now I’m a straight-line walker
In a black-out room
I push a shopping cart over
In an Aztec ruin
With my minion fingers
Working for some God
Who could see his own reflection
In a parking lot.

Oh it’s nausea, oh nausea
And we’re gone.
No it’s nausea, oh nausea
And we’re gone.

Now I’m a priest teenager
On a tower of dust
I’m a dead generator
In a cloud of exhaust
I eat alone in the desert
With skulls for my pets
I rate the days, one to ten
With lead cigarettes.

It’s nausea, oh nausea
And we’re gone.
It’s nausea, oh nausea
And we’re gone.”
