Parralox - Being Boiled


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

Additional Info :
The iconic cover art for the single Being Boiled is taken from a public domain Letraset pack released in the 70s (costing the princely sum of 2 pounds!)

Accordingly, the cover art for the original song "Being Boiled" by The Human League was used in the Parraox animated lyric video for Crying on the Dancefloor feat Francine (see video below).
To see the Being Boiled cover brought to life (and heaps of others), watch the video below!
