  • I think I might have said too much
    About a bag of gold
    That I have hiding in the line of my coat
    I think they probably know too much
    About the things I've done
    Cause there all breathing just a little too close

    Vultures are waiting
    There waiting to take me
    But not this time

    Had a taste of the dream
    Come to find it's not as sweet
    as I thought it would be
    Tv shadows over me
    In the desert of my mind
    Friends like water, hard to find
    Is there no one left to trust
    Vultures circle up above

    Ohhhhhh
    There flying, flying, flying
    Ohhhhhh
    But I won't be dying, dying, dying vulture
    Vulture

    I see them all sniff around, damn I'm stuck
    Cause I'm too tired to get up right now
    They all think I'm dead, so serve me up
    But over my dead body you better try your luck

    Vultures are waiting
    There waiting to take me
    But not this time

    Had a taste of the dream
    Come to find it's not as sweet as I thought it would be
    Tv shadows over me
    In the desert of my mind
    Friends like water, hard to find
    Is there no one left to trust
    Vultures circle up above

    Ohhhhhh
    There flying, flying, flying
    Ohhhhhh
    But I won't be dying, dying, dying
    Ohhhhhh
    There flying, flying, flying
    Ohhhhhh
    But I won't be dying, dying, dying vulture
    Ohhh yeah

    Why don't you let me be
    Leave me with what I deserve
    Saying ohhh yeah, yeah
    I'll go on living now
    There's nothing left ohh scavengers
    Give up, give up, ohhh
    Ohhhhh
    Yeahhhh
    I'm not
    I'm not
    Vultures circle up above
    Ohhhh, yeahhh [x2]
    Ohhhh, no no
    Come on, come on, come on yeah
    I wont be dying
    Ohhhh no Writer/s: CLAUDE KELLY, TIMOTHY MCKENZIE, WAYNE HECTOR
