Being Boiled

Album: Travelogue (1978)
Charted: 6
  • Listen to the voice of Buddha
    Saying stop your sericulture
    Little people like your offspring
    Boiled alive for some Gods stocking
    Buddha's watching, Buddha's waiting

    Just because the kid's an orphan
    Is no excuse for thoughtless slaying
    Children don't forget this torture
    Just because you call her mother
    Doesn't mean that she's your better

    Once more with the voice of Buddha
    He'll say carry on your slaughter
    Who cares for the little children
    You may slice with no conviction
    Blind revenge on a blameless victim Writer/s: IAN CRAIG MARSH, MARTYN WARE, PHILIP OAKEY
    Publisher: BMG Rights Management
