Slaughtered Authors Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

And so it began the dreams we had were sold unto the man.
And keen they arrived, picture perfect and pleasing to the eye.
Here's where you sign.
Now welcome to the great design.
All that you are will not be recognised 'till we decide.

Chorus

Like lambs to the slaughter they dive into the sea.
And they'll never feel the water that's coming down all around me.

See how they come?
Innocence is lost within a system.
With yesterday gone and new young king is crowned, but for how long?
Here's where you sign to see how bright your star will shine.
You'll be the one to make us beautiful... international.

Chorus

Like lambs to the slughter they dive into the sea.
And they'll never feel the water that's coming down all around me.
And those lost Sons and Daughters of a dying industry will now choke upon the water.
Where you die there I'll be.

End of the line.
We must regretfully decline.
Our expectations were not satisfied, but be advised
in the eyes of the law regard the leaving member clause.
We have a five year option for your songs.
Now move along...
