"Vultures" as written by and Ryan Martin Sean Danielsen....
You'll find the cross only fits
When your hands and feet are nailed to it
"Can we get a picture with the pauper
And another with the prince?"
Ma'am, he's got your daughter wrapped in his fists

To the boys and girls
He's alabaster
But to his brothers, just another bastard
With a story about a girl
Enough to make you sick
And how she made him king of her gracious hips
She's found a way to crown his fingertips

Let's take apart your smile, tooth by tooth

Let's show them where the bad ones go
Another case of a sheep bearing a broken nose
Let's show them where the bad ones go
Color you criminal
Paint black lines on your bones

Wake all the children from their sleep
He's robbing pillow-cased dreams and selling cheap
What lives below he wouldn't know
So let's tell them where the bad ones go

You curse the tail between your legs
Blue-faced and black-jawed
Your innocent eyes rotted
From your bedroom in the night
A lesson from the learned
If your skin won't fit
Don't sell your soul just yet

If the herd is the temptation
That the faithless can't evade,
"We ate all forbidden grapes and retreated to the vineyard
To the void in which we dwell
With a tortured youth and heartaches we'll sell
I'll be the blood and body if you'll ring that bell."

Let's take apart your smile, tooth by tooth

Let's show them where the bad ones go
Another case of a sheep bearing a broken nose
Let's show them where the bad ones go
Color you criminal
Paint black lines on your bones

Wake all the children from their sleep
He's robbing pillow-cased dreams and selling cheap
What lives below he wouldn't know
So let's tell them where the bad ones go

You'll go down in history
With notebooks, pens, and melodies
But you're running from all of us
You're running from all of us
You're running from all your love

Wake all the children from their sleep
He's robbing pillow-cased dreams and selling cheap
What lives below he wouldn't know
So let's tell them where the bad ones go

    General Commentyou'll find the cross only fits
    when your hands and feet are nailed to it
    "can we get a picture with the pauper,
    and another with the prince."
    ma'am, he's got your daughter wrapped in his fist

    to the boys and girls hes alabaster
    but to his brothers just anather bastard
    with a story about a girl enough to make you sick
    and how she made him king of her gracious hips
    she found a way to crown his finger tips

    lets show tham were the bad ones go
    another case of sheep bearing a broken nose
    lets show tham were the bad ones go
    color you criminal, paint black lines on your bones

    let's show them where the bad ones go...

    you curse the tail between your legs
    blue faced and black jawed
    you innocent eyes rubbed
    from your bedroom in the night
    a lesson from the learned
    if your skin doesnt fit
    dont sell your soul just yet

    if the herd is the temptation
    that the faithless cant evade
    we ate the forbiden grapes
    and retreated to the vineyard
    to the void in wich we dwell
    wityh a turtured youth
    and heartaches we'll sell
    ill be the blood and body
    if you ring the bell

    youll go down in history
    with notebooks pens and melodies
    but your running from all of us

    But your running from all of us.
    You're running from all of us.
    You're running from all your love.

    General CommentHah... definitely about the catholic church and how the priests who seemed so righteous... would molest and rape little kids.... Paint black lines on their bones... cuz they belong in prison... Assholes.

    General CommentOk, I completely agree with Jabestin. This song is about priests who seem righteous and go and molest and rape children, they pointed out the biggest flaw of the catholic church.

    But, i belive its "Color YOU criminal" not "Color your criminal" (just took a look in the CD booklet)
