Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds - Abattoir Blues Lyrics




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

    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?

    [Verse 2]
    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

    [Verse 3]
    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?
    Verse 4]
    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

    ahmad daraghmah 🖤🖤🖤

  31. Karim Alam

    By the order of the Peaky f00kin' Blinders !

  32. Cody Brown

    Abattoir is a synonym for slaughterhouse. Makes sense now.

  33. sandeep nandey

    Peaky blinders

  34. D.K. Brooks

    Hurt Earth brought me here.......

    Star Tsar

    S O Fucking S

  35. John Blazini

    Tromega Omega

    😄😄😄...never watched it! 😄

    David lee Garner

    i know,if ya hadnt heard of nick before that show,ya better ch3ck you're mirror

  36. Anirudh Sarma

    Its an amazing at how Nick is ignored by the entire world, if he were born in the US he would have been bigger than Elvis

    bscondict

    Yeah , I don't get it ?

    bartlett247

    I'm not sure if that were the case or not. One of my favorite modern song writers is James McMurtry and he never gets any mentions on mainstream radio. Guys like him, Nick Cave, and Warren Zevon are critically underrated.

  37. youssef miftah

    Any Peaky Blinders fan ??

    Mateusz Kunda

    youssef miftah yep and Nick Cave fan in one person :p

  38. rob hartmania

    Nick Caves best album in my opinion.  Skeleton Tree is a very close second.  This album is one of the rare examples of music perfection.

    Anirudh Sarma

    i thought push the sky away was also good, higgs bosson blues is an epic song and the tenor version of mermaids is epic

    Dan Slash

    I'm a Henry's Dream fan myself, it's an album that mixes the old stuff with the new stuff quite nicely.

    Mikael Baka

    Murder Ballads and Let Love In are still my favorites.

  39. Uniteds Knight

    Any Cave fans able to recommend songs of his similar to this? Simple slower rhythm with a focus on vocals

    Omar Ortiz

    stranger than kindness live from the kcrw

    Ramon Hernandez

    We no who u r, Love letter, To be by your side, Darker with the day, Slowly goes the night, Are you the one that I've been waiting for, Into my arms, Do you love me? -(Pt2), Jubilee street, Ain't gonna rain anymore, Avalanche, Mermaids, O children, I let love in

    Rex Freckle

    Into my arms , stranger than kindness

    David lee Garner

    probably jubilee street might make it

    David lee Garner
