Still a work in progress, I hope you enjoy the first version of Being Boiled (Parralox Remix) with vocals.

Being Boiled
Written by Phil Oakey, Ian Craig Marsh & Martyn Ware

Verse 1
Listen to the voice of Buddha
Saying stop your sericulture
Little people like your offspring
Boiled alive for some god's stocking
Buddha's watching, Buddha's waiting

Verse 2
Just because the kid's an orphan
Is no excuse for thoughtless slaying
People don't forget this torture
Just because you call her mother
Doesn't mean that she's your better

Verse 3
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
