Human League

“Being Boiled” by Human League.

Listen to this Song!

Words and music by Oakey/Ware/Marsh. © 1978 Virgin Music, Inc. (ASCAP)..

Listen to the voice of Buddha
Saying stop your sericulture
Little people like your children
Boiled alive for some God’s stocking
Buddha’s watching, Buddha’s waiting

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

Once more with the voice of Buddha
He’ll say carry on your slaughter
Who cares for the little children
You can slice with no conviction
Blind revenge on a blameless victim

Listen to the voice of Buddha
He’ll say carry on your slaughter
Who cares for the little children
You can slice with no conviction
Blind revenge on a blameless victim
