The Good Son Lyrics

Artist: Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds
Album: Live Seeds

One more man gone
One more man gone
One more man is gone

The good son walks into the field
He is a tiller, he has a tiller's hands
But down in his heart now
He lays down his queer plans
Against his brother and against his family
Yet he worships his brother
And he worships his mother
But it's his father, he says, is an unfair man
The good son
The good son
The good son

The good son has sat and often wept
Beneath a malign star by which he's kept
And the night-time in which he's wrapped
Speaks of good and speaks of evil
And he calls to his mother
And he calls to his father
But they are deaf in the shadows
Of his brother's truancy
The good son
The good son
The good son
The good son

And he curses his mother
And he curses his father
And he curses his virtue like an unclean thing
The good son
The good son
The good son

One more man gone
One more man gone
One more man
One more man gone
One more man gone
One more man
One more man gone
One more man gone
One more man
(Repeat)

The first verse is actually as follows if you want acuracy:
"The good son walks into the field
He is a tiller, he has a tiller's hands, But deep down in his heart now, he's layin' down queer plans, against his brother and against his family, yet he worships his brother, and he worships his mother, but it's his father, he says, is an unfair man the good son".

couldn't be bothered with the rest, but yeah listen to the song and you can hear the small differences & nuances. also check out the live seeds version, (which I think is the best version) it's slightly different.

This could also be interpreted as the "good son" who doesn't run away from home and waste his inheritance (Luke 15:11) and gets angry with his father who celebrates his brother's return. Read the passage and you'll get more idea of how this could be interpreted in light of that parable.
