Lyrics

Vultures

Precious few years
Nary a tear for it all

Mourning delayed
Till your estate’s settled up

Lawyers and friends
Pluck their two cents
From your eyes

Pay off their grief
With fortunes you leave
To the dead

And when the will is done
Much to lament
Sharing the loss
In the pettiness of
Vultures swarming ‘round the dead

Eventually
All this will be left to rot
Heirlooms of greed
Replacing our needs with want

There you’ll remain
Calling in vain from beyond

And when the will is done
Much to resent
Bearing the loss
Lest we forget
There never is enough

And when the memory dies
The pitiless dole it out
The pettiness of
Vultures swarming ‘round the dead
Overhead

And when the memory dies
The pitiless dole it out
A family sold
Enemies for their price

The pettiness of
Vultures swarming ‘round the dead

And when the will is done
Much to repent
Wearing the loss
Lest we forget
There never is enough

In the pettiness of
Vultures swarming ‘round the dead
