Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds - Abattoir Blues

rate me

The sun is high up in the sky and I'm in my car

Drifting down into the abattoir

Do you see what I see, dear?

The air grows heavy. I listen to your breath

Entwined together in this culture of death

Do you see what I see, dear?

Slide on over here, let me give you a squeeze

To avert this unholy evolutionary trajectory

Can you hear what I hear, babe?

Does it make you feel afraid?

Everything's dissolving, babe, according to plan

The sky is on fire, the dead are heaped across the land

I went to bed last night and my

moral code got jammed

I woke up this morning with a Frappucino in my hand

I kissed you once. I kissed you again

My heart it tumbled like the stock exchange

Do you feel what I feel, dear?

Mass extinction, darling, hypocrisy

These things are not good for me

Do you see what I see, dear?

The line the God throws down to you and me

Makes a pleasing geometry

Shall we leave this place now, dear?

Is there someway out of here?

I wake with the sparrows and I hurry off to work

The need for validation, babe, gone completely

berserk

I wanted to be your Superman but I turned out such a

jerk

I got the abattoir blues

I got the abattoir blues

I got the abattoir blues

Right down to my shoes
