Envy The Vultures

This song is by Dog Fashion Disco and appears on the album Sweet Nothings (2014).

Cat scratches and smoke burns on her face and hands
Neglected children build castles in quicksand
Tongue lashes and whip cracking innocence
Empty mouths craving spoonfuls of pestilence

Burn down the harvest, it's a plague nation
The golden noose is our one and only salvation
The face I wear now is not my own, not my own
These days are rats, minutes skin, and seconds are bones

Chain up the pearly gates
We're all flying south
Silence the witnesses
We're out

I envy the vultures no conscious inside
All they can eat just as soon as it dies
It won't taste as sweet when it's still alive
I envy the vultures that peck out your eyes

Scavenge the New World, where's your spirit now?
Beckon the wake and they all gather around
The face you wear now is not your own, not your own
These years are lions, minutes skin, seconds are bones

The face I wear is not my own
The face you wear is not your own
The skin I wear is not my own
The skin you wear is not your own

Chain up the pearly gates
We're all flying south
Silence the witnesses
We're out

I envy the vultures no conscious inside
All they can eat just as soon as it dies
It won't taste as sweet when it's still alive
I envy the vultures that peck out your eyes
I envy the vultures

Scavenge the New World
Where is your spirit now?
Beckon the wake
And they all gather around
Scavenge the New World
Where is your spirit now?
Beckon the wake
And they all gather around
Scavenge the New World
Where is your spirit now?
Beckon the wake
And they all gather around
Scavenge the New World
Where is your spirit now?
Beckon the wake...
