Identify this song: dark electronic-y, possibly Nick Cave?

Vague, sorry. I heard this last night on the radio, I was driving through a storm so didn't have time to stop and google and today I've forgotten the lyrics I told myself to remember!

It sounded like Nick Cave but I can't find the song by googling the lyrics. It was dark and electronic, and the chorus was something like "I've said all I've had to say, now let's burn...." something along those lines anyway.

Anyone know??

The Cure, Burn?

No, not them. It was pretty alternative sounding but I can't describe it better than that!

I'm a bit of a NC nerd and I don't recognise those lyrics. Birthday Party?

Probably a daft question but do you know what station it was on?

I heard this on Radio 1 yesterday, could this be it?

If you know the channel it was on you may be able to listen again online and find out.

Mercy seat! Ffs! Sorry

Funnily enough I have had the lyrics to The Mercy Seat going round in my head all evening. 'Might I say it seems so fitting, in it's way, he was a carpenter by trade, or at least that's what I'm told...'

Also a massive Nick Cave fan and don't recognise those lyrics. Sometimes Pleasureheads Must Burn is fantastic but doesn't sound like this. <waves to all the other BP fans>

Mercy Seat by Nick Cave. It's about a man about to die on the electric chair. Great song.

This Corrosion by The Sisters of Mercy?

Not to derail, but I am loving the links! Nice work people grin Hope the mystery is solved soon.

Could it be burn my Shadow by Unkle with Ian Astbury of the Cult?

It's none of these but there are some great tunes for me to fully check out later.

No I don't think it was Nick Cave, but similar voice. In terms of mood/style it was most similar to Aisha (love that tune - and the Mercury Rising album).

Heard it in France on a random station, no idea which one.
