The air was more than human And the heat was more than hungry And the cars were square and spitting Diesel fumes 
The bulls were running wild Because they're big and mean and sacred And the children were playing cricket with no shoes

With a seven-hour drive Well there we were stuck in Port Blair Where boats break and children stare

And there were so many fewer questions

When stars were still just the holes to heaven  Disembarking from the port
With no mistakes of any sort Moving south the engine running smooth  Officials were quite friendly
Once we drowned them with our sweet talk
And we bribed them with our cigarettes and booze 
The next morning we woke up man
With the sunrise to right Moving back north to Port Blair Where boats break and children stare

And there were so many fewer questions
When stars were still just the holes to heaven Yes, and there were so many fewer questions
When stars were still just the holes to heaven
