The Cave is clean on the surface. There's a few stray strange references to violence ("You cannibal you meat eater" what are they trying to say exactly?), but nothing explicit or upsetting. The music is good, but it does require a taste for banjo!

e.g. Dark Poetic Lyrics
This song is a kind of folksy (has a banjo) and rather dark poetry. It can appeal to old and young alike, as my husband and 13yr old both like this. The songs hints of suicide but then redeems itself with believing in hope. No language but beware that ALL of their songs are not so clean. The Cave single is fine but the album it is on is explicit, example "Little Lion Man" drops the F bomb as part of the refrain.
