about

words and melody by Marc Tweed

lyrics

Vultures & Devils & Swine

When the sky, it has cleared
The black train's running weird
And the vultures descend on his shape

They pick at his brains
With their loving refrain
That's as pure as a prostitute's face

His family consumes his body's concern
They're vultures & devils & swine

His bones will be sold to the black market fold
And his blood will wash over their smiles

As they shed fancy tears
And they dance to his fears
His hand twitches just once in a while

For in death perceiving the sacrilege done,
He knows that his kingdom's been sold

It's been sold, all his love

His family sits sipping cocktails of greed
They're vultures & devils & swine
