steak ‘n’ sabre lyrics – frank black & the catholics

i was sitting at a table
down at the steak ‘n’ sabre
with cain and abel
the circ*mstance was a different kind of world
we were laughing and drinking
the universe was shrinking
i was thinking, man, that’s a different kind of world
down at the steak ‘n’ sabre
like trobarianders
don’t you understand that’s a different kind of world
i was swimming in bali
when i got swallowed
by something hollow
we were going down to a different kind of world
where they talk like plato
and sweet potatoes growing all around in a different kind
of world
right down in the shallows
and the wind it blows
don’t you know that’s a different kind of world
